[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:16 PM] <Alkari> The red ones!!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:18 PM] <The_Bee> Hi KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:18 PM] <Evie> Hi KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:21 PM] <Laurna> Hello KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:23 PM] <jemler> hi kk
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:23 PM] <Kildara> Hi, KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:28 PM] <Alkari> See - the lure of chocolate cake!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:31 PM] <Alkari> Ho KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:34 PM] <KK> Woo-hoo, big crowd tonight.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:50 PM] <The_Bee> and a feast of virtual goodies
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:13:58 PM] <Alkari> Yes, there was a tea party started
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:14:11 PM] <Laurna> Tea and cakes are being served
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:14:16 PM] <jemler> dr, offer the Lady some tea!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:14:22 PM] <Shiral> Hello KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:14:41 PM] <Laurna> I think DR ran to the kitchen to refresh the pot
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:14:54 PM] <Alkari> I thought it never ran out!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:14:58 PM] * Evie hands KK the magical multi-flavored teapot
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:15:00 PM] <Shiral> What's your pleasure in the virtual tea department?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:15:25 PM] <KK> Earl Grey, please.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:15:28 PM] * Alkari gets out some nice china cups
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:15:30 PM] <Shiral> We also have a samovar of Russian Caravan in case of visiting Torenthis
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:15:44 PM] <Alkari> Ooh, that was my second choice.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:15:51 PM] * jemler sets out the Russian tea service.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:16:24 PM] * DesertRose makes a cup of Earl Grey for KK.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:16:30 PM] <The_Bee> did Russians bring caravan tea on long travels?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:16:48 PM] <Shiral> Not sure how it got it's name, Bee, but that's as good a guess as any
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:17:06 PM] <Shiral> Just finished my cup of it.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:17:28 PM] <DesertRose> And BTW, hiya, KK. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:17:30 PM] <Alkari> It's still morning here, so I need English Breakfast to wake up properly!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:17:47 PM] <Laurna> KK are you getting really excited about the new CM novel? Do you have early printings from the publisher yet for yourself?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:17:53 PM] <DesertRose> I'm on my second cup of Constant Comment myself. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:11 PM] <DesertRose> BRB
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:13 PM] <Shiral> Don't want to trot all the way downstairs and miss chat
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:23 PM] <The_Bee> Does Constant comment never shut up?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:31 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:39 PM] <Shiral> It's a talkative little cup, yes
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:41 PM] <jemler> American Breakfast: Scrammbled eggs, sausage, hash browns, croisant, orange juice and coffee!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:49 PM] <KK> Yes, I have author's copies; arrived Thursday. A fat book.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:18:57 PM] <Alkari> Yay.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:02 PM] <Laurna> Awesome!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:04 PM] <Shiral> We have no objections. =o)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:08 PM] <The_Bee> Good!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:14 PM] <Evie> Fat is good when it comes to novels
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:18 PM] <Alkari> Looking forward to my Christmas present from me to me arriving :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:23 PM] <jemler> how many pages?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:26 PM] <Shiral> Need new Deryni fix. Going into serious withdrawals
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:19:57 PM] <Kildara> rereading all of them to get ready for December release
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:02 PM] <Laurna> Loving it. I have two weeks off from work the in December.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:05 PM] <Alkari> Therapy soon, Shiral
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:05 PM] * jemler arranges a date between Shiral and Duncan McLain.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:26 PM] <KK> 534, plus indices.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:29 PM] <Evie> Wait, what? Jemler! Betrayal!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:29 PM] <Shiral> Now then, Evie will be jealous. Anyway, I'd rather have a date with Alaric!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:35 PM] <Laurna> Evie might have something to say about that
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:53 PM] <Evie> Did someone say Duncan McLain?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:20:58 PM] <Shiral> Alaric is nicely secular. Except for being inconveniently married. =o)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:21:08 PM] <Shiral> Why yes, he might have been mentioned
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:21:16 PM] <Alkari> LOL - you might have to settle for Derry then :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:21:24 PM] <Laurna> In the new book he won't be married yet. so he is fair game.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:21:28 PM] <Evie> Duncan is even more inconveniently married. You can't be a widower if you're married to the Church. :D
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:21:31 PM] <Shiral> Derry's too young for me
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:21:38 PM] <Laurna> And I intend to be there first.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:21:57 PM] * The_Bee would try to steal Nigel from Meraude, but she has too much respect for the sanctity of marriage vows.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:01 PM] <Shiral> You can try, Laurna.... You can try!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:11 PM] <Laurna> hehe
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:14 PM] <Shiral> And you'd have to fight off Jasta for Nigel
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:18 PM] <Evie> I don't think Nigel is married yet either, so still fair game
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:27 PM] <DesertRose> Good grief. We went from the tea room to a catfight over Alaric just in the few minutes it took me to go get my toast.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:33 PM] <Evie> LOL!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:34 PM] <Shiral> Sorry!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:37 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:42 PM] <Laurna> I wiegh more than Jesta so there
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:47 PM] <Evie> jemler started it by trying to matchmake Shiral with DUNCAN!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:50 PM] * Shiral meekly gets more tea from the samovar and sips
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:22:57 PM] <Alkari> See KK - you haven't provided enough unmarried Deryni :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:00 PM] <DesertRose> jemler is always making trouble. :P
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:01 PM] <jemler> my bad. i set up a date between shiral and duncan. :(
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:08 PM] <Shiral> And you married off an awful lot of them in KKB
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:20 PM] <DesertRose> Dhugal's still single in canon.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:27 PM] <Shiral> I like Duncan and all...but Alaric is my guy.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:28 PM] <Evie> No, the problem is that she's provided TOO many unmarried--and CELIBATE--Deryni! :D
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:32 PM] <jemler> funny!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:23:58 PM] <Evie> Duncan, Joram, Se....
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:03 PM] <DesertRose> I mean, Dhugal at his canonical age is too young for me anymore, but he IS at least single.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:03 PM] <The_Bee> Payne will be a bachelor for a few more years. And there's still Dhugal
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:09 PM] <jemler> dhugal is still ion cannon? funny way to putit! :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:14 PM] * jemler ducks
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:16 PM] <Shiral> But Payne is betrothed to Liam's sister
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:16 PM] <Laurna> I prefer blonds, Haldanes are too much trouble to keep.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:20 PM] <Kildara> Maybe a Reformation, English style?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:31 PM] <Evie> And Arilan might be a pain in the butt at times, but he's a gorgeous pain in the butt *coughvioletblueeyescough*
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:24:41 PM] Join Jerusha has joined this channel (Mibbit@OWIRCN-1029c739.dsl.bell.ca).

[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:14 PM] <Kildara> Happy birthday, Jerusha
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:15 PM] <Shiral> Like a cup of tea?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:15 PM] <The_Bee> Happy Birthday, Jerusha
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:22 PM] <Alkari> Happy birthday Jerusha
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:26 PM] <jemler> jerusha, finally 18!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:31 PM] <Evie> Do we have a birthday Jemler too? Or did I misread?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:32 PM] <Jerusha> Thanks, Bee, and yes, tea would be lovely
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:40 PM] <DesertRose> Jerusha, what's your favorite kind of tea?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:49 PM] <jemler> my birthday is in march
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:25:50 PM] <DesertRose> We have an enchanted teapot that pours whatever you want. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:03 PM] <Laurna> Alkari that chocolate cake should be out of the oven by now. put a candle on it please.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:07 PM] <Jerusha> I'll take Earl Grey Green tea, thanks
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:13 PM] <Evie> OK, I'll get you aquamarines, jemler. Fake ones, though. I'm on a budget
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:15 PM] <Alkari> Only ONE candle?!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:16 PM] <Shiral> Have the House Elf trot it over
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:24 PM] * DesertRose pours Jerusha a cup of Earl Grey green.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:30 PM] <Shiral> Jerusha is very young at heart
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:34 PM] <Jerusha> I had only one candle - the first 60 didn't count
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:38 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:48 PM] <Alkari> A woman after my own heart!!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:50 PM] <Evie> Yes, one candle. Let's not set off the smoke alarm. :D
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:26:57 PM] <DesertRose> EVIE!!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:01 PM] <Alkari> OK, one candle it is. What colour do you want?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:03 PM] <Jerusha> It could have happened
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:05 PM] <Kildara> That means you're 21 with 40 years experience!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:10 PM] <Evie> (Did that with DH's cake once. I used those trick candles that don't blow out.)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:15 PM] <DesertRose> Oops.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:16 PM] * Shiral lobs a goldfish cracker at Evie
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:20 PM] <Jerusha> Green I think, for Corwyn
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:38 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:27:53 PM] * Evie catches the goldfish cracker in her mouth
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:28:08 PM] <Alkari> OK.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:28:11 PM] <Jerusha> Good catch, Evie
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:28:23 PM] <DesertRose> Smooth, Evie. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:28:24 PM] <Shiral> I think we have another competitor for Alaric, Laurna
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:28:48 PM] * Alkari carefully puts chocolate cake on large plate, lights the green candle on top and gives it to Jerusha
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:29:06 PM] <Laurna> Oh dear. You wont mind if I tie you to the tea table for the next month do you Jerusha?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:29:13 PM] <Evie> LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:29:34 PM] * Jerusha blows out the candle and shares the cake. But not Alaric
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:29:39 PM] <Shiral> LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:29:44 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:29:47 PM] <Evie> See, this is one thing I like about being a Duncan fangirl. Less competition. :D
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:29:48 PM] <Shiral> Well...it's her birthday, after all
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:30:10 PM] * The_Bee takes a piece of cake and thanks Jerusha.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:30:17 PM] <Laurna> For now Only. For now.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:30:27 PM] * Jerusha says "You are welcome."
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:30:33 PM] <Evie> Well, except for when Jasta is here, but she's not here.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:30:53 PM] <Evie> and if she starts making eyes at Duncan, I just point her towards Nigel. :D
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:31:10 PM] <Alkari> LOL.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:31:15 PM] <Jerusha> It's hard to direct someone away from Morgan
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:31:31 PM] <Evie> Oh, I love Morgan too, but he's too high maintenance. ;)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:31:55 PM] <Jerusha> So am I ;)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:32:02 PM] <Evie> I'd admire him from afar
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:32:07 PM] <Alkari> LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:32:09 PM] <Shiral> All's fair in love and war, Evie. =o) YOu can't win unless you're present
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:32:37 PM] <Evie> and leave him for Richenda to handle when he gets all in a dither over something, like having to eat at High Table and then go immediately to a secret ceremony in a stuffy hidden room
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:32:40 PM] <DesertRose> If it weren't for Evaine, I'd be claiming Rhys. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:32:41 PM] <Alkari> I can pick a fight with the Nigel fans as he's sllightly more my age
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:33:09 PM] <DesertRose> But alas, he is married.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:33:35 PM] <DesertRose> So I suppose, chalk me down as a Rhys fan-girl. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:33:42 PM] <Jerusha> They are all married, except for Dhugal and Derry
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:33:52 PM] <DesertRose> True, they're either married to wives or the Church.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:01 PM] <Jerusha> Wives?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:04 PM] <jemler> and denis and duncan!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:20 PM] <DesertRose> They = plural men
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:26 PM] <Evie> Denis and Duncan are married to the Church
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:37 PM] <DesertRose> Therefore, plural and distinctly different wives. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:39 PM] <Laurna> Rhys was always like a father figure to me. I'l happily be in his house.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:40 PM] <Jerusha> But not as wives, I hope
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:34:58 PM] <Evie> No, but that was an either/or statement. Wives OR the Church
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:35:05 PM] <Jerusha> I have never really gotten over Rhys' death
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:35:09 PM] <DesertRose> Me neither.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:35:22 PM] <NavaWazr> there are so many deaths I've never gotten over.....
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:35:22 PM] <DesertRose> I actually threw Camber the Heretic across my bedroom, and I NEVER throw books.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:35:27 PM] <Laurna> Don't remind me. It didn't happen
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:35:57 PM] <Evie> Good thing that was before it came out in the Kindle version, DR.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:00 PM] <DesertRose> Javan, either.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:03 PM] <NavaWazr> (wish that I had bought stock in Kleenex before I started the series....)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:12 PM] <DesertRose> I don't own a Kindle, so no worries there. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:27 PM] <Kildara> Heirs of St. Camber was tough all the way through
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:38 PM] <Jerusha> Tragedy makes for a good story, but I wish it hadn't been Rhys
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:44 PM] <Kildara> Good, though - I think that's my favorite of the trilogies
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:46 PM] <Alkari> Same here.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:55 PM] <Jerusha> Javen was hard to loose, and Charlan
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:36:57 PM] <DesertRose> I thought about getting the Kindle app now that I finally have a sort-of-smartphone, but because it's kind of a crappy and older phone, the Kindle app for it kind of sucks.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:37:19 PM] <DesertRose> I am also perversely fond of the Heirs of St. Camber series, even though it makes me want to cry.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:37:38 PM] <Shiral> When the characters you love are in real danger, it definitely keeps things real
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:37:40 PM] <Evie> the phone app isn't full featured as the actual Kindle device, but it's useful if you want to read on the go
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:02 PM] <The_Bee> I prefer to read on paper.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:06 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, and the version of the app that's compatible with my phone has bad reviews. Apparently, it's a pain to use.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:11 PM] <Alkari> I downloaded it to my iPad but have never used it.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:16 PM] <Shiral> Can't read on the phone...too tiny. Prefer reading on my iPad
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:17 PM] <Evie> I want Kindle versions of the Camber and post-Camber era books, KK. Any chance of that happening soon
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:36 PM] <Jerusha> Yes, my paper copies are becoming fragile
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:37 PM] <Shiral> I've ordered a paper copy of King's Deryni
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:38:40 PM] <Laurna> The new book I preorderd both ways. I don't know which way I will end up reading it.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:01 PM] <Shiral> Hard to get an ebook autographed!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:01 PM] <DesertRose> I saw a Facebook post recently that read something to the effect of, "A good story makes you want to climb into the world of the story. A great story leaves you no choice."
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:16 PM] <Kildara> Me too for Kindle. I'm having to downsize library - keeping everything not available on ebook, but almost everything else is being donated
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:17 PM] <Evie> I usually read the Deryni books in print, but keep Kindle copies because they are searchable if I want to find a passage quickly
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:19 PM] <KK> Yes, to Kindle editions. I've just requested reversion of the rights to both series, so that they can come out in Kindle editions.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:28 PM] <Laurna> Autographed! Yes How do we do that!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:36 PM] <Alkari> Yay. Sounds great KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:42 PM] <Laurna> Nice
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:42 PM] <Jerusha> Excellent, KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:45 PM] <DesertRose> Awesome, YAY!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:52 PM] <Shiral> I was wondering if you'd drowned in the Samovar, KK =o)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:39:54 PM] <Kildara> Thanks, KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:40:09 PM] <Evie> Yay! And audio versions too, I hope! That would be worth resubscribing to Audible Books for
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:40:17 PM] <KK> Mind you, it will probably be well into next year before they're available, but the wheels have been set into motion.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:40:29 PM] <NavaWazr> Mine are all paper, I like holding the books
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:40:29 PM] <Jerusha> This is good, KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:40:35 PM] <Shiral> Getting things rolling is the first step.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:40:42 PM] <DesertRose> I don't know if I could handle listening to the audiobook of King Javan's Year. So very many sad things.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:40:56 PM] <Shiral> Ack, this is true
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:41:04 PM] <KK> Lammas, Legacy of Lehr, the 2 Templar books, and Two Crowns are also to be in the lineup.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:41:10 PM] <Evie> There is that, DR. And some passages are harder to get through in audio. I discovered that with the King Kelson trilogy
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:41:18 PM] <Kildara> Oh good - my copy of Lammas is falling apart
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:41:21 PM] <Shiral> And then sad when Rhys Michael Gets Smart just in time to die
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:41:36 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, I remember you saying you could barely deal with the Duncan-torture scene, Evie.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:41:36 PM] <Evie> any more news about the Lammas movie?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:41:40 PM] <Jerusha> He could have made a great king
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:42:06 PM] <Jerusha> Or at least able to pull the kingdom together once more
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:42:07 PM] <Shiral> Javan did well with the time he had, but he had too many enemies
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:42:20 PM] <KK> It's going forward slowly. They're working on the second draft of the script, and looking for funding.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:42:26 PM] <jemler> duncan torture. enclosing duncan in a glass cafe where evie can't get to him!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:42:41 PM] <DesertRose> Yes, and he didn't have the political clout to get rid of them, sadly. They needed getting rid of at the very least.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:42:44 PM] <Shiral> Is the Deryni Rising movie a dead letter, or can we hope....?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:42:48 PM] <Alkari> It's a good time to be looking at scripts for historical / fantasy series
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:43:05 PM] <Shiral> Cinhil Haldane is the King I want to KICK most often
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:43:11 PM] <DesertRose> YES!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:43:18 PM] <Alkari> Its not such a strange genre now!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:43:37 PM] <Jerusha> Cinhil did get pulled out the life he wanted most
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:43:59 PM] <Shiral> Dealt with his pain by spreading it around, though. Made Megan unhappy, and could barely show love for his sons
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:44:09 PM] <Evie> He never really wanted to be King. He grew resigned to it, but never fully accepted it.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:44:34 PM] <Shiral> I know.... But I STILL want to kick him for choosing such lousy regents!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:44:46 PM] <Evie> True, that
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:44:48 PM] <Jerusha> Still should have been slapped upside the head for his choice of regents
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:44:55 PM] <Evie> with a mackerel
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:44:55 PM] <The_Bee> Wasn't he tricked into that?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:45:23 PM] <Kildara> And he was positively freaked by the magic - resisted the training and let emotion drive his use of it; talk about conflicted!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:45:27 PM] <Shiral> He was fooled into signing something he shouldn't have....but he picked the regents
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:45:51 PM] <DesertRose> Or kicked firmly in the posterior.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:46:01 PM] <DesertRose> (Rather than slapped with a mackerel)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:46:01 PM] <Shiral> Multiple times, yes
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:46:36 PM] <jemler> is that MY mackerel?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:46:38 PM] <KK> Deryni movie is on a back burnr for the moment.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:46:47 PM] <DesertRose> KK, did Cinhil drive you as nuts in the writing as he seems to drive your readers? LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:47:11 PM] <DesertRose> I think you once said something to the effect of "well-drawn characters tend to do what they want to do." :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:47:15 PM] <Jerusha> Maybe that is just as well. I wouldn't want it made into a Gwynedd Game of Thrones
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:47:21 PM] <KK> I felt sorry for him. But he was driven by his past, and things he couldn't control.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:47:32 PM] <Kildara> That came through - that's how I felt.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:47:34 PM] <DesertRose> True.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:02 PM] <DesertRose> He just made some colossally bad choices, particularly at the end of his life.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:03 PM] <Shiral> Well true. He had no choice about being the last Haldane heir
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:18 PM] <Jerusha> Still, sometimes you have to let the past go and take control
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:19 PM] <NavaWazr> I felt that I could understand -why- he made his decisions, I just did not -like- Cinhil's decisions
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:20 PM] <Shiral> But don't talk reason to me when I want to kick him, anyway!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:26 PM] <KK> Similar for Conall. He made a series of wrong choices, and finally found himself beyond the point of no return--and too proud to fess up and take the heat.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:28 PM] <Laurna> I just wish he loved his wife and his children more openly. so that they knew of his love.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:47 PM] <Alkari> I think Cinhil had more excuse though, than Conall
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:48:54 PM] <Shiral> Okay, so... Conall is the Haldane I want to kick without feeling sorry for him!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:01 PM] <DesertRose> If he'd been able to show his love for Megan and the children, I think he'd have been more able to do a lot of things that would drive us all a lot less batty in his direction. :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:12 PM] <The_Bee> I think Conall's poit of no return came what he pushed Tiercel.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:17 PM] <NavaWazr> agreed Conall was spoiled and bratty and awful
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:17 PM] <DesertRose> Yeah, but Conall got what he deserved in the end.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:26 PM] <KK> Ah, but I do still feel sorry for Conall.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:44 PM] <DesertRose> Cinhil got to have a semi-peaceful death without having to face the consequences his choice of regents put on his sons and the people of Gwynedd in general.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:44 PM] <Alkari> Yes, in a way - he just let his envy and jealousy blind him.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:49:54 PM] <Shiral> Conall must have found life as Kelson an endless source of frustration. So I KIND Of understand him, but still!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:50:03 PM] <Kildara> We don't have much of Cinhil's backstory - there are aspects of his behavior toward Megan and his sons that suggest to me some trauma in his own childhood.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:50:10 PM] <NavaWazr> but.... if Cinhil had been able to care more for Megan, and had made better decisions.... we wouldn't have as complex a series
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:50:11 PM] <DesertRose> That's true, Kildara.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:50:15 PM] <DesertRose> Well, yes.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:50:41 PM] <Jerusha> I wonder what would have happened if Tiercel had not fallen and had been able to read what was in Conell's mind
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:50:46 PM] <Alkari> Conall woud have been better sent away as a squire somewhere else for a while
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:03 PM] <Shiral> Feel sorry for Nigel, too. Must be constantly wondering what else he could have said or done that would have prevented Conall's betrayal
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:05 PM] <The_Bee> me too. IMHO he would have been better off if Nigel had packed him off to Carthmoor where he could see his own birthright instead of having kelson's rubbed in his face.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:06 PM] <Alkari> Instead of just living in Kelson's shadow in Rhemuth
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:10 PM] <DesertRose> Conall might have done well to have been fostered for a bit at the Orsal's court or something.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:11 PM] <jemler> i doubt it alkari. he was too full of himself.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:37 PM] <Alkari> Yes, but being sent away before he got to that age might have helped a great deal
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:47 PM] <DesertRose> A little travel might have broadened his horizons and made him think about things other than his jealousy of Kelson.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:51:56 PM] <KK> Fostering elsewhere probably wouldn't have hurt. And at least he would have made different wrong decisions....
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:07 PM] <Jerusha> Conall probably would have thought he was being shoved aside, if he had been fostered.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:07 PM] <Evie> LOL True. :D
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:09 PM] <The_Bee> Tiercel told Conall he much to recommend him in his own right. but we never saw it.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:11 PM] <DesertRose> LOL, KK.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:34 PM] <DesertRose> Tiercel was an arrogant little so-and-so himself. What he saw in Conall was a way to show up the rest of the Camberian Council.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:43 PM] <Alkari> He seemed OK when we first met him in the original trilogy
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:48 PM] <DesertRose> Not that he deserved to die and rot in a back corridor the way he did.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:52:59 PM] <Alkari> Yes @ DR re Tiercel
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:53:26 PM] <Alkari> Although you can understand his frustration at the stodginess of people like Vivienne!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:53:27 PM] <The_Bee> Leavingh aside rank, it's tough for a young boy to try to keep up with a slightly older boy.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:53:36 PM] <DesertRose> Oh yes, Vivienne would have driven me batty too.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:53:39 PM] <Evie> "Unto Your Majesty, Kelson, King of Gwynedd, from the King of Bremagne. Your royal cousin Conall has picked fights with three of my squires and got the eldest daughter of one of my Earls in a family way. I am sending him back to you for discipline."
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:53:54 PM] <Shiral> Never have quite understood why the Camberian Council resented Kelson for not being in it. He'd already sworn oaths to protect his Kingdom; he clearly puts that first, and being King is kind of an absorbing job.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:53:56 PM] <DesertRose> And Denis Arilan, in his own stuffy way too.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:12 PM] <Alkari> LOL - now there's another person I want to kick!!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:17 PM] <DesertRose> Whom, Dennis?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:21 PM] <DesertRose> *Denis
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:21 PM] <Laurna> lol
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:23 PM] <Alkari> Yes!!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:27 PM] <Jerusha> I like Denis
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:28 PM] <Shiral> OR Vivienne?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:37 PM] <Shiral> LOL, Evie.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:43 PM] <Laurna> I could never understand Denis
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:44 PM] <jemler> i wonder if the council will find proper teachers for the new scola
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:46 PM] <Alkari> I bothlike him and want to kick him - in equal parts
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:50 PM] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:51 PM] <Jerusha> It's good to watch him spar against Morgan
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:55 PM] <Evie> I like Denis too. Want to kick him in the backside sometimes, but I can get where he is coming from, so I can't dislike him.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:54:59 PM] <Shiral> Yes I'd kind of feel sorry for the host court if Conall had been fostered abroad
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:55:09 PM] <DesertRose> That's what makes him interesting, that combination of the likability and the annoying.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:55:12 PM] <Shiral> Denis seems to have sat down on something sharp
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:55:27 PM] <Laurna> I don't dislike him. But I don't care to sit and have tea with him
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:55:35 PM] <jemler> the orsal has enough kids without conal sowing his own royal oats!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:55:39 PM] <Jerusha> Tea with Arilan could be very interesting
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:55:42 PM] <DesertRose> There is that.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:55:58 PM] <Shiral> If Denis was in one of his more forthcoming moods, I wouldn't mind a cup of tea with him at all
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:03 PM] <Alkari> I'd probably break a few teapots over his head. Or certain parts of his anatomy would get scalded ....
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:06 PM] <Jerusha> Kind of like playing chess with tea leaves
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:12 PM] <KK> If Conall had been sent to a foreign court for training, older boys would have knocked some humility into him, I suspect.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:12 PM] <Kildara> Speaking of tea, could I have another cup of Lady Grey, please?
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:18 PM] <The_Bee> The Council had pretty much forgotten its original purpose by Kelson's time. But I' not quite sure if the original purpose was to protect Deryni , keep them in line, or to mediate between Deryni and humans.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:23 PM] <DesertRose> Conall seemed to know better than to get a well-born girl pregnant, though. Vanissa was a commoner or at best a daughter of gentry.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:29 PM] <DesertRose> Sure, Kildara.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:30 PM] <Laurna> Those violet eyes stare right through you. Nope
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:31 PM] <Evie> I'd love tea and a game of cardounet with Denis, but I'd be lousy at cardounet
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:50 PM] <Shiral> Now I'm regretting it didn't happen, KK. Would have liked to see some no-nonsense foreign knight give him a lesson he'd never forget!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:56:51 PM] <Jerusha> Me too
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:03 PM] <KK> Alaric gets quite caught up in cardounet in the new book--and makes some friends thereby.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:03 PM] <Jerusha> On both counts :)
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:33 PM] <KK> Whoops, the time. GOtta run. See you guys next week!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:34 PM] <Evie> Cardounet is a good game for a future general to learn
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:37 PM] <Jerusha> It's getting harder to wait, KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:40 PM] <Evie> Bye, KK!
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:43 PM] <NavaWazr> maybe the idea was brought up, Conall got thrashed by a visitor from that court, and then Conall figured out a way to avoid being sent away
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:46 PM] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:47 PM] <NavaWazr> bye KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:48 PM] <Evie> Only a few more weeks, Jerusha
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:49 PM] <Laurna> Something to look forward to.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:49 PM] <Jerusha> Thanks for coming, KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:50 PM] <The_Bee> nighters, KK. Thanks for coming
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:54 PM] <Alkari> Bye KK
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:55 PM] <Shiral> Bye, KK have a good week
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:57:56 PM] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:58:00 PM] <KK> Ta-ta for now.
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:58:06 PM] <Evie> DS just got home, so I'm out of here too
[Sunday, November 09, 2014] [07:58:08 PM] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
