@DH@twitter YES! i've heard that too. my main reaction is: finish your under contract books faster, ms. pierce, so you can get to writing that!
@DH@twitter RIGHT? ugh, i'm dying to see sarralyn and rikash let loose on the world. and neal's future daughter! i bet she'll be hilarious.
and it occurred to me while i was reading aly's books that tortall has recently become some kind of well-connected super power through it's women. kalasin is empress in carthak. aly's the queen's right hand in the copper isles. shinkokami is going to be queen one day. kel essentially turned the tide of the war, so tortall could defeat scanra. FICTIONAL WORLD POLITICS.
@Sailor Jupiter i agree. their relationship kind of weirds me out in the original quartet. but i'm a lot more comfortable with them in the flashes we get in PotS and the Alianne books. i think a lot of it has to do with the fact that daine is still really young in the original four, and in the other series she would be in her mid-twenties. she seems a lot more confident and self-assured. i think it just took her some time to realize that she is THE definitive wild mage who can stand on her own, whereas Alanna/Kel/Aly/Beka have always been driven and headstrong.
whoops. that got away from me a little bit.
@Sailor Jupiter I've read almost everything Tamora Pierce has written multiple times. I just have to isolate myself to one or two series at a time, otherwise I lose weeks going through everything.
Yeah, Daine gets herself into... situations. Her life is by far the weirdest of all the protagonists.
@Ellie do not be embarrassed by that, because that's basically how i live my life. except i know i would be a major disappointment to Kel.
@DH@twitter TAMORA PIERCE! I fall into a rabbit hole of rereading her books roughly once a year (sometimes less, sometimes more). I just reread Page, Squire, Lady Knight, and the Alianne books. I'm waiting for school to end before I let myself read the Beka books.
I think Kel is who I would like to be, but Aly is more who I am actually like. I mean, Kel has had all her shit together from day one and I'm about to be an adult and I've got nothing.
@anachronistique off topic, but HELLO FELLOW KORRA FAN. i didn't expect to see you here.
@MoxyCrimeFighter thanks! i embrace it. i've also had people ask me if i dyed it that way...? which is confusing to me, since there is no discernible pattern to it. if i had tried to dye it the way it comes in, i wouldn't had to do it one hair at a time. (i'm 21 and probably half my hair is grey, for reference's sake.)
@Sarah H. yes, it can be very silvery! about half my hair is grey and i actually get compliments on it a lot. (i'm 21)
