Bond, James Bond

When I was younger, I admit I was never much of a James Bond fan. I always thought the movies were over hyped, and didn’t understand why people found them interesting. It started when I watched one of the earlier ones with Sean Connery. I could only watch halfway through it, before I switched it off as I found it a tad dull. One minute he was in one country, you blink and he would be somewhere else. I always waited for something to happen, but nothing rarely did.

She’s as close to royalty as we peculiars have. They tried for fifty years to elect her leader of the Council of Ymbrynes, but she would never give up teaching at the academy she and Miss Bunting founded. Today there’s not an ymbryne worth her wings who didn’t pass under Miss Avocet’s tutelage at one time, myself included!
A little photo edit I made of Miss Avocet. I am so looking forward to seeing this movie when it comes out.
