The Allotting of The Dares // The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad Wrap-Up Video(s)

good morning, cyberspace!

Well, folks. You know what this is.

A long, long, looooong time ago, I promised you all a video of my face handing out the NaNoWriMo Dare Squad dares to all us losers. And though it took many months and a few outtakes during the Q&A section (don’t get your hopes up, peasants. they have been deleted), I have finally gotten over my fear of talking to literally no one and have created the video.

Or, shall I say, videos, because for some reason I can’t figure out how to merge them. Aha.

But anyway, here you go, my friends. The first video is the Q&A, in which I answer all of the questions you lovely folks sent in to me (I think I forgot to say thank you for sending in questions in the video, so I’m just gonna fling a giant THANK YOU!!!!! at all of your faces right here instead. . . *flings thanks at your face*), and the second video is the actual allotting of the dares, in which the video quality is poor, the editing out of flubbed up words is even poorer, and during which you can see (if you squint hard enough) the fact that I was too lazy to erase my first effort at jotting down some Dare Squadian names on my scrap paper, and so I decided to just cross them out like some sort of weird hitlist instead. #normal

I promise I’m not trying to murder you, guys.

But anyway. Here you go, peasants. Enjoy watching me flail and make a fool of myself! *thumbs up*

(also for anyone who is wondering — no. i am never making another video like this ever again. i am a blogger, not a youtuber, and i think that fact is extremely apparent at this point.)

EDIT NOTE: Apparently WordPress will not allow me to just post the video like a normal person, so I had to upload the videos to YouTube. #FUNTIMES Fortunately for me, I was able to keep them unlisted so that virtually no one will ever be able to find them, so here you guys go! I’ve also got the names and dare numbers listed down below, so even if you don’t want to watch the videos through completely, you can just skippity skip down to the bottom of this page and check out which dare you got!

(oh! one other thing. when i say “bad dares” near the beginning of this video, what I’m really trying to say is “super embarrassing dares”. when i’m nervous i just kind of ramble and fail to word properly. so. yeah. fun times.)

. . . THE FINAL TALLY . . .

The NaNoWriMo Dare Squad Season Two Dare Board


Well. This was properly horrifying. I’m actually not all that comfortable with posting videos of myself onto the internet, but I mean? New year, new experiences, amiright? (this is never happening ever again, oh my word) Hopefully I’ll be able to sleep tonight without having a panic attack. . .

BUT ANYWAY! How about you guys? How have you all been? I’m assuming this post means I’m back from my Hiatus, so let’s talk about all of the glorious things you’ve been doing, shall we? And as for all you NaNoWriMo Dare Squadians out there. . .what do you think of the results for the Dare Squad? I’m actually pretty excited with the one I got (I believe I also failed to mention that mine was submitted by the lovely Eva. . .), and I am EXTREMELY stoked to see what all of my fellow losers do with the dares they’ve received!!! I hope all of you are having the very happiest of New Years, and here’s hoping this video is not the end of my existence here on earth. Aha. *nerves*

As always, until next time. . .

*flings cookies in the air and disappears*

  1. Oh this is terrible, you making a video makes me want to make a video… xD
    I really like that you want to help people follow their dreams and stop people from trying to hold others back.

    Avengers certainly counts, I still have to watch it though… But yay! Thor is one of my favorite’s too!
    I know, picking favorite songs is super hard. xD Least favorite works too!

    On to the dares…
    You could do the obnoxious character takes over your accounts on April Fool’s Day…
    (And I’m curious what you would do with an ancient sword…)

    • MWAHAHAHAHAHA. And finally the plague of the bloggers turning Youtubers has begun…. 😂😂😂 Honestly, though, I think this is the only video I’m ever making. I am definitely not a vlogger/youtuber. I’ll stick to my smol little blog, thanks… 😂
      OKAY BUT RIGHT?? Everyone should be allowed to follow their dreams!! I hate it when people are too scared to do it because it’s not conventional or something. I feel like God gave everyone a passion for doing something, and it’s up to us to do it, you know??

      OOOOH. WATCH AVENGERS, JETHAN!!! DO IT! 😂 And yes!! Thor is AMAZING. I love how awkward he is…
      IT REALLY IS, THOUGH. XD Joseph’s lullaby is absolutely beautiful, though…

      Oh my word!!! Jethan!!! You just gave me the most amazing idea!!! *tackle hugs*

        • OKAY YES. Please stick to your blog, because I NEED your art in my life. (although you do post it in the cabin, which gives me life, but still. I NEED YOUR BLOG) Buuuuut that being said, you should totally try making videos if it looks like fun to you! I would adore having a Jethan vlog!!!

          Procrastinating going to the library = same. Especially when I’ve got books due that I haven’t quite finished yet. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. #fail

          • Yeah, and it’s just simpler to blog rather than vlog. I’ve sketched a bit, but I completely ditched all my official art/story plans because Real Life had other goals.

            Did that library trip, and now I have DVDs to trade…

  2. Okay, so I have to say this since you got the Twilight dare: I haven’t read or watched any Twilight, but just before the dares were revealed I had a DREAM about Twilight. Wherein Bella and Edward were in SUNNY Italy looking at some ruins. Apparently they were no longer vampires? There were some other people around and some vague sense that a plot was hiding out? Anyway, sunset fell and they went outside the ruins and suddenly these shiny, slightly rainbowy spaceships or hovercrafts things came flying over the lake to fight them. I guess there weren’t any vampires but there was another group of magical people trying to fight them. Then I woke up. Honestly, I contemplated taking that dare and reviewing my dream version of Twilight rather than the real thing…

    • OH MY WORD. Ruby, you are the sweetest, I can’t… <333

      MEEP! Thank you!!! My mom cut it recently (you already knew this XD) and I am absolutely in LOVE with it being short! It makes me so happy. XD

      YESSSSSSSSS!!! WE ARE TWINS. IT IS OFFICIAL. How on earth did we get separated at birth???

  4. I liked the videos! By the way you’re saying my name completely right. It was actually kind of a good surprise to me because everyone always says it wrong. :) I’m kind of excited for my dare (my most obnoxious character is just a really moody teen so that should be fun :) ). I can’t wait to see yours too! When I was reading through the dares the Twilight review was one of my favorites so I hope you have fun with it!

    • MEEP! I am so glad you liked the videos, Kirsten!! They were very weird to make, and I will most definitely not be doing this ever again, but it was a fun experience, nonetheless. XD AND I AM SO BEYOND HAPPY I PRONOUNCED YOUR NAME RIGHT!!! I absolutely love that pronunciation, so it’s my go-to when I see it. XD

      I am SO excited for your dare, as well! It’s going to be so much fun to see what you do with it!! And oh goodness, I KNOW, right??? XD This is going to be so much fun to do… I’ve actually picked my super-hyped-yet-I-despise-it-book, and I’m hoping to have it written up and posted sometime in February. . .


  5. Just gotta day (even though I’m joining the party late because I’m a lazy bean) that these videos made me grin and squeal with happiness. My Kenzie bean is wonderful and hilarious on camera and in writing and I guess you hated these but I kinda want you to start a vlog anyway because I would watch the heck out of that thing. Anyway.

    But I’m so excited to have gotten Dare number 1! This is going to be so fun!

    I feel like you ended up with the hardest one AGAIN, though. It’s not as bad as last year’s by any means, and if you survived that you can survive anything, but oh dear 😂.

    • Oh my goodness. . . GAIL. YOU ARE SO SWEET. WHAT EVEN. I’ve kind of been VERY MILDLY debating doing a writing vlog kind of thing as I tackle some super secret projects, BUT I REALLY DON’T LIKE FILMING MYSELF. XD Maybe I’ll do a weekly blog post or something instead. XD BUT SERIOUSLY. ACK. THANK YOU. GAIL!!! I cannot even with you right now. <3333

      I KNOOOOOW! Your dare looks so good. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS!!!! XD

      You know, I'm actually really looking forward to this one, rather than dreading it like I did with Kate's. XD I have my book picked out already (might step on a few toes, here) but it's going to be fantastic, because I REALLY don't like this book. Aha. XD


  6. I haven’t actually watched the videos yet, but I’m sure you will be as adorable as ever. And yayyyyyy, comedy routines…. I’m not actually sure what direction to take with this… if I give it to Angel, she’ll just snark her way out of it. Hmmm. ANYWHO!!! Looking forward to writing it!!

    • Don’t worry. They’re weird. You’re not missing much. XD I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU TO DO THIS ONE!!! It’s going to be fantastic!!! (I feel really bad for not remembering which character Angel is. URGH.)
