Gorgeous Steampunk Jewelry and a Generous Offer From Denise Garner

Vampires Suck

Twilight, the favourite fantasy of teenage girls everywhere, is not well understood in TLCB Towers. There are no cars (apart from the odd Volvo advertisement), little discernible acting talent present in the movies, and a there’s plot-hole* large enough to park a Steampunk Airship in. 94 more words
