Funny happenstance. Eight when you said random death eater, an add came on with Tom Felton promoting some game app. 😆
I just found your podcast today. I don't like podcast I can't stay interested past 5 minutes but I have been listening all day at work I really enjoy it !
I realize the overwhelming majority of discorse happens on Discord, but I also wanna say that I'm grateful that the podcasts are published here. I've been in the process of packing for a move and love being able to listen to these discussions as I do physical work.
The song my husband & I danced to at our wedding was Sweet child of mine!
I love you ladies. I'm a bit twitterpated by your stories because they are so well written. often, they spark my nerd brain in random directions. Thank you for sharing the stories and the podcasts. I've been inspired to start writing again.
Pronouns "Auror" like Aurora without an A.
Since you mentioned animals loving you again. My Maine Coon Freya keeps trying to share your podcast when I'm listening to it.
This made me laugh so hard.
"am I not merciful" was that an Illuminae reference?
this is amazing! I can now podcast you while working on major projects at work!
Love the new avi!!
I attended school with the RL Matthew S. He was a lovely, kind person.
I'm a reader, so I really appreciate knowing how damaging asking for more means to the author. I think this is something everybody needs to hear. I'm a ghost reader too so when I comment its asking i would love to see but i was just trying to show my appreciation. Its good to know that saying that isn't okay for most authors. This is my second podcast I've listen and its awesome. Thanks!
Re: getting rid of the adults - a large part of that trend in kids and YA books is down to the pervasive influence of Enid Blyton, who was great at it. Also Mary Poppins gaslights the children - what do you mean, having tea on the ceiling? Such imagination!
Someone might've already pointed this out somewhere else but the USMC doesn't have doctors, they borrow from the Navy. Don't know how relevant that is but I've always found it interesting anyway :)
Interestingly, in the Dark is Rising sequence, Susan Cooper deals differently with the awkward adults situation. Will is at the centre of a very loving family, but it's huge so his parents are flat out just dealing day to day with work & running the household. That's what allows him to work around them. Plus, you know, stepping outside of time....
For anyone that has seen Doctor Who, would you consider the "timey whimey, wibbly wobbly" explanation about time travel a lampshade or a handwave? They also did a thing where The Doctor would make a crazy advance device and the explanation of how it worked was "it goes ding when there's stuff".
I prefer to write Alternative Universe because it gives me more freedom. But I’m open to trying canon divergence. When I write AU I it’s because I have problems with the canon. And don’t take this in a bad way but isn’t being sent to the corner the enforcement ya use to make sure people follow the rules?
There is a lot of skipping around the 30 minute mark.
