You have two dreams in life; either to be happy, healthy, and rich beyond beleif, or to be a bellmaker, and you don't care which it is.

~You're having a regular conversation with your friends, and you suddenly burst into tears and shout "Why? Why did Rose have to be mercilessly slaughtered! Why?!"

~You use phrases like lack a day, or toodle-pip, words like bally and jolly, and frequently end sentences with "wot wot?".

Although, fortunately, most of those do not apply to me I am guilty of some of them:


You use phrases like lack a day, or toodle-pip, words like bally and jolly, and frequently end sentences with "wot wot?". I'm British so it's not quite so odd. The same goes for Molespeech.


You actually know what a flan is!
I would have probably known this as we have had flan several times at home. I think, perhaps, it's a British thing.


You lock your siblings in the basement and don't give them anything to eat, and forget about them for a very, very, long time!
I think I better go check on my brother...


Your dream is to see Martin the Warrior kick the snot out of Mickey Mouse.
But doesn't everybody dream that?;)


You have read Marti n the Warrior 5 times and you s till feel sad

"You like to describe yourself as a "strong, badger lord-like person"."

<---yes

"You move to Wisconsin so your state mascot can be the badger."

"You want to make wine in your basment. "

<--- does knowing someone who's family owns a winery count?

"You just cant stop writing those fan-fics! "

Some of these apply to me in one way or another. Should I be scared?
Yes.
~You use phrases like lack a day, or toodle-pip, words like bally and jolly, and frequently end sentences with "wot wot?".
Yes, actually. Just to confuse the locals.

~You eat your Wheaties every morning so you can grow up to be strong like Matthias
Quite frankly, I prefer Cheerios. Does this mean I want to grow up strong like Cluny?:p

~You start naming your pets after characters, such as Log-a-Log, Ratflank, and Bella
But naming pets after characters is FUN. No, really.

~Whenever someone mentions the Bubonic Plague, you mutter, "Darn rats. Lousy vermin. Typical."
It was carried by fleas on rats, and the species that happens to inhabit Redwall drove away the "plague carriers", so show a bit of respect!

~You keep making sure the squirrels in the trees don't have arrows pointed at you.
It's so true. Ya can't trust the little buggers.
Too true.

~You see certain animals in the petstore (rats, mice, ferrets, etc.) and refer to them as "Cluny" and "Veil" and "Mattimeo" ond other such names.
I have done that, in the company of a younger kid who also likes Redwall. Matthias and Cornflower had a whole nestfull of babies *snort*

~You just cant stop writing those fan-fics!
What? Are you laughing at me?!

~You can speak fluent Sparra...even if no one else understands it.
Nobody knows what I'm saying anyway:D

~You want to tear someone apart when they think of Redwall as "rat" books.
People've told me that. "Is that a rat book? Or is it a weasel thing?"

~You make bows, arrows, staves, Gullwhackers, etc. and actually shoot them at birds, and insist you need moving targets.
I've had a passion for chasing small furry animals long before Redwall.

~Despite fashion trends and designer T-shirts, you wear a habit to school. (OOC: My best friend actually made one and does where it to school. I'm in the process of making mine.)
Sounds like fun, but I'm enough of a fashion outcast as it is.

~You scramble around whenever your cat walks in the room and blurt out "Hail queen Tsarmina, queen of a thousand eyes...."
That may be the cat's fantasy. I'm on to him...won't fool me...

Some of them are true. I know what a flan is, but that doesn't mean I'm obsessed with Redwall. (even though I am. I've had Redwallian dreams many a time!) I've had flans in my school dinners!!!

P.S: They weren't all that nice.

wowowow! interesting bit of knowledge!
ok, while skiing in canada, i came across a dead mouse in the middle of the run. suddenly, a white ferret, tiny creature, ran onto the run, dodged skiers, grabbed the mouse, and ran to the other side with it. it was tiny. tiny.
yeah, and, im keeping a snake.

Hisk
December 22nd, 2004, 02:02 PM
Cool. Ive yet to see a ferret in the wild. I'm a city slicker, and I dont usually venture up north during the winter to ski. MEthinks the mouse died of cold? Or maybe it was fright from seeing a massive human on skis bearing down on it?

Aleisou Swiftpounce
December 22nd, 2004, 02:23 PM
Hey Cheese, it might've been an ermine. They're tiny, and white. In winter anyway.
Ferahgo, you sound like my kind of mustelid-lover ;)

Ferahgo the Assassin
December 22nd, 2004, 03:55 PM
I was thinking ermine too. I don't think Canada has wild ferrets, and I doubt that a pet ferret would seize a mouse like that. Ferrets aren't even that small, really - bigger than ermines. And this is the time of year they'd be white.

Hisk
December 22nd, 2004, 05:18 PM
Sorry Ferehgo, but Canada does have wild ferrets, notably the black footed ferret in Alberta and Manatoba. And Ermines? I dont think Canada has them. I could be wrong though, I'm no wildlife expert by any means. But I am shure about the ferrets 100%. It also might be possable that the "ferret" cheesethief saw was actually a mink. They are quite small, like he described, and turn white in the winter. If cheese was in an area with lakes or ponds, than this is probebly the case.

Ferahgo the Assassin
December 22nd, 2004, 08:38 PM
Sorry Ferehgo, but Canada does have wild ferrets, notably the black footed ferret in Alberta and Manatoba.

Really? Wow, that's pretty neat. I thought that black-footed ferrets only lived in the central plains of the US, but I just looked up a range map and you're right, their range touches on Alberta and Saskatchewan, too. They don't turn white in winter, though.

Ermine aren't exactly seperate species - it's just what people call short-tailed weasels when they turn white in the winter.

Could be a mink too, though.

Aleisou Swiftpounce
December 23rd, 2004, 03:30 AM
It could be a least weasel for all we know. Ermine/weasel sounds most likely. Mink are actually larger than those two. I suppose a feral ferret would do anything for food, and the females are pretty tiny. It could have been an albino, that's why it's white.

P.S: Aren't Black Footed Ferrets critically endangered or something like that? I doubt Cheese would have been lucky enough to have seen one of those...

Ferahgo the Assassin
December 23rd, 2004, 09:25 AM
Black-footed ferrets are definitely endangered - that's why I was so surprised that their range extends into Canada. Apparently it's the most endangered mammal in North America.

Hisk
December 23rd, 2004, 11:56 AM
Mink are actually larger than those two.

I've seen many minks (notably at my cottage in Northern Ontario) and they certainly appeared to be pretty small. I'm geusssing 20cm or so. About the length of a ruler including the tail. But, I've never seen a wild weasel, so for all I know weasels are smaller.

Cheesethief
December 23rd, 2004, 04:05 PM
the mouse didnt die of cold: the creature killed it, and had to avoid skiers, so it was coming back when i came past.
from the depths of my memory, i suspect it could have been anything. i dont think it was completely white. but, im not sure. everyone else was shouting "ferret" so i assumed thats what it was. sorry i cant help out. if i remember anything ill let you know.

December 24th, 2004, 05:13 PM

Unfortunatly, it is well know that those came from that site. Chelki even said it. (Athough you have to read the whole thread, not just the first post.)

You know you're obsessed with Redwall when you regularly return to this thread, wishing that you could come up with some really, truly creative example of obsession with Redwall that you could post here, meriting great respect from other forum members.

You also know you're obsessed with Redwall when you're painfully aware of and afraid of being the last, second-to-the-last, first, or second poster on any one page in this forum, thus possibly becoming the last poster in the thread for some time, or possibly becoming one of the only posts on a new page for some time.

Witness my insanity.

You know you're obsessed with Redwall when you just had to post in this thread to proclaim that you agreed wholeheartedly with what Rolinko said.

And you know you're obsessed with Redwall when you're looking for fanart and practically explode when you can't find any good fanart of your favorite character. ...which means you're obsessed because it might motivate you to make said fanart.

I'm guilty of some of this, such as knowing how to spell "Salamandastron" and taking like a hare. I've also cried whenever I read that a good character has died. I have occasionally lapsed into molespeech, but not often enough to be considered obessed about Redwall.

I'm almost to the 500 mark, and used to have about 10 a day. Anyway...

You propose a parade in honor of the expulsion of Cluny from Redwall
You request said parade be hourly
WITH free ale and scones

The words 'humans', 'automobile', and 'soda/pop' have no meaning to you, while you can recite the exact definition of anything found in or near Mossflower.

You have created MRWOU, Mice, Rats, Wildcats, Otters United

Rose, when threads have had no answers for several weeks, please start a new one. ;) We avoid to unbury old threads.

Otherwise I agree with you. Actually I read Martin only one time, but I don't want to read this twice, because I find it's the saddest of all the serie.

I thought that forums rules stated that it wasn't officially an old topic until it has been six months since the last post. It's only been three. Now if it was the end of April, that would be a different matter altogether. So technically, this isn't an old thread, yet.
MtW is my favorite though. It wasn't sad until I saw the TV series. :( That was when I found out that Martin and Rose were in love. :D
And now, getting back on topic: Whenever you hear the Hilary Duff song, Love Just Is you think of your favorite Redwall pairing (M/R fluff for me!)

That is so me! Ooh, here's another! When you do a book report on a Redwall book, even though that's what all your other book reports have been, and you're supposed to read something new.
When you can connect the years that important family events happened with the books publication dates. For me, my parents were married in 1990. That was the year Mattimeo was published.
Also, when you think the two greatest things of 1986 were the creation of Redwall, and the West End premiere of PotO.

You have two dreams in life; either to be happy, healthy, and rich beyond beleif, or to be a bellmaker, and you don't care which it is.


~You use phrases like lack a day, or toodle-pip, words like bally and jolly, and frequently end sentences with "wot wot?".Well when someone calls my name I say "wot wot?"

~When no one's around, you talk to yourself in mole speach, and you think that isn't strange at all. I prefer to call it practicing.

~You like to describe yourself as a "strong, badger lord-like person". :DWhat I am!!!:D

~You quiz your friends on meaningless Redwall trivia every chance you get. Only to my brother who doesn't care.

~When you find yourself trying to pick apart some unusually tough meat, then pull out a large knife, scream "Eulaliaaaaaa!" and make as if to attack it. :DJust in my head:p

~You see, Martin the Warrior, Gonff, and Dinny run across your floor one morning at dawn. No, but Cluny the scrouge is pooping all over my house.

~Your parents ask you what you want to be when you get older and you say, "I want to be like Boar the Fighter." Is that a bad thing?

~You pass a construction site where they're digging a basement, and you wave and shout, "Ho urr, gud luk to 'ee! Foine day fer diggin' yon holer, ho urr!" First I got to practice some more.

~You beg your parents to install a belltower instead of a satellite dish. Do you think they would go for it?:D

~Your dream is to see Martin the Warrior kick the snot out of Mickey Mouse. I'm sure I'm not the only one.:)

~You can spell "Salamandastron" off the top of your head. This is a very necesary thing to know in life!

~You refer to Grey Herons (or Great Blue Herons for us Americans) as Warden, and acknowledge their total legal authority. Well I mean really, HE'S THE LAW!!!!!

~You climb up to the roof of every house that has a weathervane to see if there are any swords. I would, but I'm too short.:(

~You are talking to someone then break off and "Have you ever read Redwall..." Hey I'm just curious!

~When you attack your little sister, you shout "Sparra Killlleeeeet!" She started it!!!:mad:

~You can speak fluent Sparra...even if no one else understands it. No, but I always enjoy a good chat with a squirrel.

~You ily feed your rabbit so much food it dies. Your excuse a SCOFFING CONTEST. Guess what, I won!!!!!

~You call all your friends messmates or shipmates. I prefer matey.

~When you find a rat in your house you catch it, glue a miniature sword to it's paw and release it to later hunt it down and battle to the . :(Do you think that would work?

~You catch a hare and a badger and make a special mountain enclousure for them only to watch the badger rip the hare t o peices. :sad:And then yell "Curse you wrath!!!"

~Your parents and friends, even some strangers, have heard so much about Redwall they refuse to listen to you speak. You know my brother!!!!:eek:

~You mutter when a friend who's betrayed you is near, "Some day, Tsarmina, I vow that I will slay you!" "You owe me a new sword!!!!":mad:

~You run around the neighborhood yelling, "EEUUUULLAAALLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!! !!!! 'S ON THE WIND!!!!! EEEUUUULLLLLAAALLLLIIIAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!" *Runs to do so*

~You insist that there's a strawberry tree in your backyard.
You carve wooden canes and insist that you be called "Russa" or "Russano". I mean we have a lot in common, so why shouldn't I be known as Russano?

~When you sit down to what appears to be a good meal, you smile and say "at last, pine marten!" *mom sets down different meal for me*Oh no it's actually a fox!!!!



This is me!!!!!:lol:
