Stories and Doodles – Blog Collab with Maggie Doodles!

– What Maggie says is in bold, whilst mine is normal. ๐Ÿ™‚ –

Hello! Today, me and Maggie are doing a blog collab! Maggie has drawn 3 doodles for me to write some character profiles for them! In return, I’ve drawn a picture and Maggie’s going to write a short story about it! Hope you guys enjoy!!!

Hi!! Iโ€™m Maggie, the writer behind Maggieโ€™s Doodles. Iโ€™m so excited to be doing this collab with PottahWand! Some of my favorite hobbies include blogging (obviously ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ’• ), photography, journaling, listening to music (especially Irish music, that stuffโ€™s the BEST), reading, and doodling! Iโ€™m the oldest of five kids and I live with my family in the southern United States. I love inspiring others and making new friends! (Click here to see her AMAZING blog, and her collab post: here)

Character Profiles

Name: Adira

Favourite Colour/Color: Turquoise

Lives In: Ocean

Age: 17

Heritage: Greece

Likes To Eat: Seaweed and sea plants

Backstory: I was on a walk on a beach, when I found this shiny pebble. I wanted to be a geologist when I grew up, so I wanted to check it out. When I touched it, I had this fiery sensation in my mouth, so I took out my water bottle to drink some water, and then I found I was a mermaid! (Luckily I was near the ocean, so I could push myself in.) It’s not nice turning into a mermaid, but after the years I can manage it better. (I go back to my family after a few days.)

Names: Dakota (left) and Sereno (right)

Favourite Colours/Colors: Any! We love all of them!

Age: Both are 13

Heritage: USA

Live In: Massachusetts, USA

Like To Eat: Burgers and pizza!

Backstory: So, we’re both cosplayers, and a year ago, we were at this tea party cosplay event, and Dakota dressed as the March Hare, and I dressed as the Mad Hatter. We teamed up together to try and win the event, and we did! Ever since we’ve been really good friends!

Names: Apricot (left, dog) and Nala (right, cat)

Live in: UK

Ages: 1 in dog and cat years

Favourite food: Chicken, tuna.

Backstory: While they get on very well, Nala and Apricot don’t live in the same house. Their owners regularly visit each other and bring their pets with them.

Maggie’s Story:

This is something I drew, and Maggie has written a short story about it! ๐Ÿ˜€ โฌ‡๏ธ

Easing her cumbersome school bag to the other arm, Aria walked up the sidewalk to the library. It had been a long day and she wanted to go home. What stopped her from turning onto her street after leaving school was the possibility of checking out that one particular book from the library. She figured it would be checked out, once again, since her entire class was talking about it, but she had to try. Aria smiled as she thought back to the synopsis. โ€˜FlameTailsโ€™ by Bethany Ticket was the story of a mother fox and her kit, and in the story a girl with flaming red hair discovers them abandoned in a box. Itโ€™s up to the girl, named Arina, to return them to the Guard, an enchanted man who kept the entire Fuega universe in order. One reason she wanted to read FlameTails was because of all the hype. But she also had to read the story for herself because what sheโ€™d heard of Arina reminded her so much of herself – and their names were almost identical! Being a storyteller at heart, Aria would have fun pretending that she was going on an epic adventure to get those foxes back to their rightful owner. Now she approached the library doors, but the Free Book box sitting outside caught her eye. She never ended up liking the books that got tossed aside in there – it had turned into a Trash Books box, more like it – but she could have sworn sheโ€™d seen movement. Was that – no, it couldnโ€™t be. She dropped the handle of the libraryโ€™s front door and approached the box. “Youโ€™re kidding,” she thought. A fox lay curled up in the box, and a little kit scratched at the sides of the cardboard. Aria blinked. Instinctively, she looked around. Maybe someone was pranking her. Maybe she was going to be on a TV show! Then, at the edge of the woods, she spotted a strange-looking tree. Welp, it wasnโ€™t a tree. It was a man in a thick tan cloak. Staring at her. “Whatโ€™s going on?” Aria thought. Then, everything around her turned to white. All that remained were the two foxes sitting in front of her… waiting to be guided home.

I know. IT SOUNDS LIKE A REAL BOOK!!!!! I WANT TO READ MORE!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ IT IS SO SO SO SO SO GOOD!!!

  1. This collab turned out SO awesome! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ž I’m so glad you enjoyed my story! I gotta figure out what happens next, it has such potential ๐Ÿงก maybe I could share more of the story on my blog! (Once I get a name for it! ๐Ÿ˜‚)

    • I know! It was SO fun!
      Well, OBVIOUSLY! IT WAS AMAZING!
      Yeah! I would LOVE reading it, it’s so interesting and creative!
      Thanks! I made a few days ago, and now that I can use Canva a bit more, I think it looks HORRIBLE. ๐Ÿ˜‚
      Oooh! Name suggestion, maybe you could call it FlameTails, and she realises that what happened in the book happened to her, and that the author of it was a time traveller! Actually, you should be choosing a name, not me. Sorry about that! ๐Ÿ˜‚

      • Haha thanks! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘
        Ohh I get what you mean lol! That happened to me with making featured images – as I got better at it, I thought the old ones were cringey lol
        WAIT THAT’S A GREAT IDEA-
        I need to start taking notes ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿงก
        Could you make a book cover for it?? like what if you did a girl with red hair (facing away, so you see her hair) with an epic fox silhouette in the background? I wanna see that haha

      • Yeah, I’m gonna get better at making things with Canva from now on. ๐Ÿ˜‚
        Haha! Thanks!
        Okay! I can try, and I see what you mean, but I warn you, it might be kinda bad! I will try, though! Would you like me to email it to you when I’m finished?

      • ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™Œ
        You’re welcome!
        I think you’ll do an awesome job! and it would be epic for your art to be on the front cover because your art is what inspired the story! Yeah you can email it to me! and maybe I could add the title and my name ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿงก
        You don’t have to if you don’t want to btw – no pressure! I could potentially draw a sketch of what I pictured for the cover, that could make it easier

    • Haha, it was all Maggie’s idea!
      Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜… Maggie wrote the story and I wrote the profiles. ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thanks! I don’t really like the sign off, though, because I didn’t really know how to use Canva, so it doesn’t really capture my “vision”, but oh well! ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿคฃ
      *whispers* Of course! I’d LOVE to! I’ll email you in a minute!
