    A Fairly Odd Smash: Prologue

    In the dark world of Subspace, a great, glowing blue creature battled against a Smasher. He spread his great butterfly wings, activating the Off Wave attack. The Smasher, a plumber with a red hat and black mustasche, used the shield-thing to protect himself from the attack. Furious, the creature grew very big, and used a laser attack. The Smasher tried to dodge it, accumalting moderate da<_>mage. Before he could finish the plumber, the Smasher threw a violet lightsaber-like object at the creature.<p>The creature, Tabuu, could not believe it. He was defeated by a mere overweight Italian Smasher. His wings shattering, Tabuu twisted in pa<_>in. But he still had one trick up his wing. Tabuu had used a spell on his younger brother he could activate at anytime, which made him think like Tabuu. He did casted the spell on his brother before the once-Ancient Fairy Warrior was stripped of his crown and wand.<br>Before he was banished to Subspace.<br>Before he was de<_>feated by Mario.<br>Tabuu activated the spell, and then he di<_>ed.<p>MEANWHILE, ON EARTH.<p>A red rat with a small crown floating above his head, really an Ancient Fairy Warrior in disguise, rested in a cage, waiting for his godchild to arrive home. He was among the few who stayed behind when the other Ancient Fairy Warriors became stars to fend off the Darkness. Suddenly, a blond girl, aged 7, walked into the room. Her hazel eyes glanced over at her fairy godfather.<br>"Hi, Corona! I'm home!"<br>Corona smiled. With a burst of pink dust, he appeared outside of the cage in his true form. Corona stood about the size of a human, with smooth glowing red skin and yellow butterfly wings, unlike his much smaller colleagues. He had a small star-tipped wand in his hand.<br>"Hello, Bella."<br>Corona was assigned to the girl two years ago. Bella was a kid who was relentlessly bullied by her peers from the moment she started kindergarten. Bella, now a second-grader, couldn't tell her parents, as she was scared that they might hu<_>rt her..<br>In short, she was mi<_>serable.<br>To her, Corona was her best friend and confidant, and she loved her fairy godfather very much.<br>"Do you wanna watch 'Spongebob' with me?" Bella asked.<br>"Sure, I-AHHHH!" Corona screamed, clutching his head. The room grew dark.<br>"Corona?"<br>The Ancient Fairy Warrior laughed ev<_>illy. "Why should I care about a little girl? I have other things to do."<br>He threw aside his wand and opened up a portal. Corona jumped through it.<br>"CORONA! COME BACK!" Bella ran, picking up his wand along the way, and jumped into the portal after him. Then the portal closed.<p>((Welcome to my new fanfic, "A Fairly Odd Smash"! It's a Fairly Oddparents/Super Smash Bros. crossover. Pardon the fact I made Corona Tabuu's younger brother. I hope you like it!))

    Turner was an artist who existed as an instrument of creation

    An excellent study of Turner and his times. A tad jumbled, I felt the author could have done a better job with continuity and flow. In the end, one feels there is much more to Turner as a man, though the book does an excellent job of detailing the painters life works and public cantankerous nature. I did greatly appreciate the detailed discussion of color and how Turner brought his visual impressions of the world to canvas.

    A BOON FOR ART LOVERS

    An enigmatic gentleman, the great English painter J.M.W. Turner courted secrecy to the point that he is said to have painted with his door locked and, if he were working away from home, he would immediately cover his painting should anyone attempt to see his work. Did he fear that someone would try to take his method of painting, discover how he created such wondrous colors? No concern there as Turner was one of a kind and painted as only he could. Now, in this beautiful volume published in association with Birmingham Museums and Art Gallery, England, the world is able to see these masterworks and enjoy them over and over again. They represent Britain as seen through the artist's eyes shortly after the Industrial Revolution. Traveling by foot, horseback, coach or river boat he traversed his country capturing agrarian towns, growing cities, ancient castles, landscapes, churches, and more. Thanks to James Hamilton 'Turner's Britain' is a joy for those who appreciate art and a boon for art historians.
