So the first three revised editions were relesed today - I am majorly annoyed because, DESPITE HAVING PRE-ORDERED THE BOOKS, I only received the first one and not the second or third books, due to their unavailability. This may have something to do with the fact that I live in Britain though :|
ANYWAY, this is going to be a running tally of anything worthy of note I find in the revised editions during my intial, cursory perusal through the book. I can't read them yet as I am currently going through my Uni's exam period, but as soon as they aer done, I'll give a proper run-down of the book.
So, initial thoughts:
- Why did I only receive one book? (An intensely sore and painful point for me)
- The book is ever so slightly bigger than your standard …Read more >
So basically, this happened:
OH MY GOODNESS ME, WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN FANGIRLING?!!!!!
AT THE #PUCKABRINA HASHTAG?
AT THE PROSPECT OF NEW CONTENT FOR THIS FANDOM???
Gah, I have no words!
What does this mean?!!!!
An animated series?
A graphic novel? (I'm a major fan of this idea).Read more >
Basically, YOU GET YOUR BEAUTIFUL SELVES DOWN TO AMAZON AND PLACE THE PREORDER FOR THE REVISED EDITIONS OF THE FIRST THREE BOOKS AS SOON AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN.
I HAVE PROVIDED THE LINKS FOR THE UK AND AMERICAN VERSIONS OF THE SITE SO DO IT!

NERDS fans! Michael Buckley posted this on twitter a few days ago and this on Instagram.
To be honest, I thought all the rumors about a NERDS movie were just rumors, but if he's written a first-draft script and isn't being secretive about it, it seems like this might actually be a thing.Read more >
So I've been thinking recenly about all the foreign Grimm fans. I mean, the Wikipedia page exists in French and Russian in addition to English, and a while ago I stumbled across a giant Russian fandom and it was weird and exciting and then recently I've noticed a couple French fans on dA and FF. And when I search my own library system for the books, it keeps turning up results in Spanish. I kinda really wonder how big these foreign fandoms are... and I'm curious about the idea of making the wiki multilingual and seeing what happens...
Edit: Strike that, I did a little digging and I found a Russian version of this Wiki. http://ru.sistersgrimm.wikia.com/wiki/%D0%A1%D1%91%D1%81%D1%82%D1%80%D1%8B_%D0%93%D1%80%D0%B8%D0%BC%D0%BC_%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B…Read more >
I EDITED THE WIKI 15 MINUTES TOO LATE AND AND MY COUNTER FOR THE DEDICATED BADGE RESET WHYYYYY DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME?Read more >
I thought this might interest people--a post about all the news on Michael Buckley's newest book, Undertow. It's the first book in a planned trilogy.
- First, we feared them. Then we fought them. Now they might be our only hope.
- Sixteen-year-old Lyric Walker’s life is forever changed when she witnesses the arrival of 30,000 Alpha, a five-nation race of ocean-dwelling warriors, on her beach in Coney Island. The world’s initial wonder and awe over the Alpha quickly turns ugly and paranoid and violent, and Lyric’s small town transforms into a military zone with humans on one side and Alpha on the other. When Lyric is recruited to help the crown prince, a boy named Fathom, assimilate, she begins to fall for him. But their love is a dan…
So I've taken to cleaning up the wiki and as such, I've started on the templates. They are hideously underused so I thought I'd blog a kind of 'run-through' (if that) so you can see all the different templates that can be put on a variety of articles:
For templates that don't require you to fill in any parameters (e.g construction boxes, stubs etc) you can simply place on the page to produce this:
in Parameter 1, type the quote; in 2, type the source (usually the person who is saying it) and in 3 type the base source (the book it's from). Click here for the Quote template page.
Ignore the categories below; when you insert the corresponding template onto a page, the wiki automatically categorises the article for you :)Read more >
Eventually I'll have to stop fangirling with excitement every time some more news about this comes out, but for now...
(And the original announcement: https://www.facebook.com/michaelbuckleyfanpage/posts/968039606557597 )
See, when I heard the news about the tenth-anniversary Sisters Grimm edition, I focused on "new art" and "new designs" and stuff like that. I thought it was interesting that Buckley was making "revisions," but I thought they'd be pretty minor, unnoticeable things.
Nope. Nope. Apparently he's rewriting the entire series!
And now that I know the changes for the new edition won't be purely aesthetic, you know what that means? I've got to…Read more >
OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH I FOUND OUT MORE NEWS ABOUT THE SISTERS GRIMM LOOKIT: https://www.facebook.com/michaelbuckleyfanpage/posts/968039606557597
New book designs! New art! Revisions! NEW ART! This is thrilling!Read more >
So apparently Michael Buckley keeps hinting on his Twitter that he's going to have some huge Sisters Grimm news to announce soon.
AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IT IS AND I WANT TO KNOW AND THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME.
Ugh.Read more >
Basically I'm going to start on a major cleanup of the images on this wiki because we have loads of nonsense/repeated images and it's bugging me badly.
I also want to start adding placeholders to articles without images so currently the ones we have are:
I'll probably do more but I don't want to overcomplicate things - if you come across any articles without images that aren't part of the series, put the placeholder on it :)Read more >
YO this is the page about my love for The Sisters Grimm (and Puck) so comment or whatever but don't be a hater K.K.! So read, have fun, sit back and relax.Read more >
So I dunno if this'll interest anybody on here (are there even people still on here?), but a week ago I wrote this 2000-word thing proving that Ferryport Landing exists and where it is and I'm really proud of it and in the spirit of blatant self-promotion I'm spreading it here as well.

For a long time, I've been trying to figure out what font is used for the Sisters Grimm title. I never could find it. But now... I have.
It's a font called "Eccentric."
I just figured I should say so somewhere, so that someday, when someone is Googling it, it'll actually show up.
You're welcome, world.Read more >
Well the title says it all really!
The author of the book series, Michael Buckley, turns 44 today! and only 5 days away from my own fantastic 15!
And yeah, I'm aware that this blog may come off as a bit stalkerish what with me knowing his age and all - but come on! The wiki is basically a site for fans of his hit series and it's really easy to find out his birthday by looking on his Wikipedia page!
Not that I had to do that - nope, I knew today was his birthday because exactly a year ago - ONE WHOLE YEAR AGO - I started liking The Sisters Grimm series. Well I say liking...more like obsessing really. A year ago! It is my one year anniversary today! And I didn't even know it was M.B's Birthday until recently! It's fate 'tis what it it!
Also, piec…Read more >
I've just had the powers of admin and beauracrat rights bestowed upon me (I've just come from the Merlin wiki, which is why I'm talking so odd), but that in no way means that I am the dictator-like figure of this wiki. I'll try my absoluet hardest to make this wiki inclusive and engaging for everyone.
I'd just like to say thanks to anyone who upped my confidence when I was applying for the adoption of this wiki, 'cuz I in no way thought I was going to get it. So Thank You! (Particularly Rchie743 - seriously, thank you!)
If you have any questions, need direction or just want to say hi, feel free to leave a message on my talk page!

I totally get that this is nothing to do with the wiki, but I just wanted to say 'Happy Eid!' to anyone who is celebrating the festival. Or 'Eid Mubarak'. Whatever floats your boat.
Yes, I am aware I could have put this on my talk page, but chances are it'd get lost in the other posts there.

So I was thinking that I haven't got enough blogs about The Sisters Grimm (I haven't got any), instead focusing on the Royal Baby. Coo. And then I thought "Hey, let's find another way to bore anyone who has nicely decided to view my profile and blogs page. It's most probable that you'd be reading this whilst you're tring to get a badge (if you're not - whoo! Go you!), so I was thinking that it would probably be easier for you or anyone to comment on a blog about The Sisters Grimm considering it's The Sisters Grimm wiki. Amazing logic, no?
And so here it starts. I will start blogs on the books in the series (including The Very Grimm Guide) and I most proabably will do character review blogs too - Got to add, they will proabably be…Read more >
I haven't edited on this wiki for the longest time and I realized it was about time I came back. I'll continue to edit, mostly on the weekends and on Fridays because of school. Anyway, hopefully the Philippines will get book 9 soon so I could read it and add more info to the different pages, and make more pages too.
Anyway, I'm gonna go back to editing now.

If you haven't read the book yet, I'm not sure that you'll want to read this blog here. *Spoilers*
First of all, Sabrina is so dumb. I knew Puck would burst into the wedding because that's what happens in fanfiction written by twelve-year-old girls, and it's supposed to be entertaining or something, but she just left the poor guy at the altar. Really, Sabrina? If you don't want to marry the guy, don't go and have a wedding.
Then her daughter is freaking out about fairy wings coming out of her back. Once again, really? Sabrina spends her days working with Everafters, she's married to an Everafter, heck, she IS an Everafter, and she doesn't say one word to her daughters about it until one of them grows wings. On another note, making Sabrina an E…Read more >
When will Council Of Mirrors come out in the Philippines?!?! I only know so little about it, and all of it is about who's dying and stuff. The only quote I managed to come by is:
"It's more than a crush Henry, I'm going to marry your daughter."
If that was not said by Puck I will personally hunt Michael Buckley down and order him to change it. GAH! My friend sent me the epilogue and I wanted to scream. BRADLEY? WHY?!?!? WHY!?!? Lucklily Puck comes in and saves her from being married to him.
And Daphne has a crush on Pinocchio? Weird. I mean, I'm still a hardcore Dapherseed shipper but now that I think about it...
OH! AND GREAT NEWS! YAY! I just made the 2000th edit on the wiki! And got 100 points for it for the badge thing! Now I am Ranked #1 …Read more >
I've been trying to add pictures to articles! But they don't want to! Grr... And I have so many pictures to upload! I have ones of Elvis, Mr. Seven, Jack, The Wolf, and so much more and they're not letting me upload any of them! GAH!Read more >
Stinking time zones. I was on here every single day, and I look at my badge progress and it says 1/14 and I'm like "WHAT? I was on here!" And then I noticed that there is a time zone difference and I missed the new day by about 20 minutes. I'm gonna try and be finding some settings up in here.Read more >
I was just wondering some stuff about our home page.\
Firstly, the reason of the title of this blog post, maybe we could put a slider. One of those things like in the Harry Potter wiki or Harry Potter wiki. I think it would look quite cool, maybe, but then again we have to decide on what pages we should feature in the slider and all that but still, it would look nice.
Second, I have this question. Why is the featured article in the side of the page? Just wondering...
I'm trying hard to edit the books too, help needed from anyone possible!
-ARead more >
So, I've noticed that my plan for creating more pages didn't go very well. The main discussion page(s) for this wiki are really hard to find, so I'll do a repost.
So, I've added a bunch of pages to this wiki, and I had so many more ideas that I wanted to add that I made a list. Unfortunately, there are just too many on the list for me to do on my own (I don't want carpal tunnel). Well, I could do it, but it would take forever.
What I'm hoping is that someone will see this list and decide to create the pages for the items on the list. If the text is red, it needs to be created. If it is blue, someone has already created it. (To get the links, you have to open this blog page entirely).

So, I'm not sure how long this badge thing has been going on, but I want them. They're pointless, I know, but I want them anyway, which is why I'm making this first blog post. Also, I think some poor soul will enjoy my rambling deep down in their hearts.
I could tell you about my fanfiction, but I'm not going to. If you were interested, it is on fanfiction.net in the Sisters Grimm category. And before you ask, no, I am not telling you my fanfiction username.
Blog badge conquered.Read more >
Is anyone here from FF? Just wondering...
So, here's a blog post. Yeah.
So what's going on with my life?
But I'm here to welcome myself to this wiki.
Oh, and if anyone wants, here's a spoiler for my new fic on FF.
'You see, mom told me I need to express my feelings in you, and actually make some new friends. I can handle the “try to make friends” thing, but the expression of feelings is quite hard 'Let’s see, my wrist hurts from writing, I am bored, and amused that Mom actually thinks this will work

Attention all Grimmsters!
I'm pleased to announce that I've recently discovered a new little thing called Wikia Labs. Apparantly, Wikia has been doing some upgrading!
Wikia Labs has introduced six new ideas they're "playing with". Each upgrade is completely optional. The upgrades are:
- [Editor Redesign]
- Article Comments
- Category Exhibition
- Top 10 Lists
The Chat upgrade seems really great. It connects you to other people editing this wiki, which will allow me to finally converse with y'all!
I tried out Article Comments, and it seems to have its kinks.
I can't find a good way to explain Category Exhibition, so I'll just put a link here.
Achievements gives you little badges for a certain number of edits you have, or something like that. It …Read more >
Hello everyone. Some of you may have noticed my reduced activity on here for the past June or so. I apologize, but don't worry--I haven't given up! There's been some maaaajor computer problems at my house but it's all fixed now! And though I haven't been able to do actual editing, I could see from my email inbox how many of you have helped to fix and edit the Sisters Grimm Wiki. Thanks so so much! You guys did awesome!
So...I guess I'm back. Yay!
To celebrate my return and to thank y'all who edited, I made 5 spanking-new pages!
- Puss in Boots
- Mordred le Fay
- Morgan le Fay
- Cinderella Baxter
- The Snow Queen's Homeland.
Yeah...I've been rereading the fifth book.

Hi, I am the current owner of the Sisters Grimm wiki *fan girl scream!* and, believe it or not, I am just another hopelessly obsessed Sisters Grimm fan. Like you! Ah, where should I start? I came across this wiki some time ago. Unfortunately, its founder had left it in the dust, and (from the looks of the Wiki Activity) it was only maintained occassionally by some brave SG souls, but basically, it was a husk of past dreams. This made me sad. You know what made me sadder? From my wiki searches, there wasn't any other Sisters Grimm wiki up and running. Fans had no where to turn to for valuable information. There was no place where SG information was pooled together. There was just no such thing. All attempts to start wiki became stubs of hope…Read more >
