[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:06:19 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi web8
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:06:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Hi KK!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:06:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Is that our lovely KK?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:06:22 PM EST] Nick web8 is now known as KK.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:06:29 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi KK!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:06:48 PM EST] <The_Bee> How was your week, KK?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:06:54 PM EST] <bynw> 66 was our high today. 70 for tomorrow. 31 for Wednesday
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:07 PM EST] <bynw> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> This morning I read the climax and ending of Deryni Rising while ushering at church. Considering the setting of those scenes, I'm glad I did it there!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hello, KK!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Like I said, 'tis the season for layering.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> How did you like it, Marac?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:49 PM EST] <The_Bee> You're on a roller-coaster ride, bynw
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> How did you like it, Marc?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:07:55 PM EST] <KK> Hello, all.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:08:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I've just watched "The Greatest Night in Pop," about the making of "We Are The World." Feeling a little nostalgic for nine-year-old!DesertRose who heard that song for the first time in March of '85.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:08:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Hi KK
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:09:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It's on Netflix.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:09:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> The story is just beginning, @Marc_du_Temple
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:10:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I liked it very much. I won't say for what in case there's someone newer than me, but it made me feel things: outrage, vindication, sympathy, a little worry, satisfaction, and joy for a happy ending.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:10:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Oh, don't worry, Marc. Nothing bad ever happens in the rest of the series.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:10:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> ROFL!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:10:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Nope, not a thing.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:10:55 PM EST] <KK> Glad you liked it, Marc.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> Yes. Deryni Rising could have stood alone. I'm glad it didn't have to.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> No one nearly dies
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yup, buckle up, @Marc_du_Temple. It's going to be A Ride, but a wonderful one. If you feel like it, start a thread on the forum and tell us what you think there.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Excuthe me, I theem to have my tongue embedded in my theek.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Oh, phew XD
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> KK doesn't have a body count about as high as GRRM's
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Or come over here and tell us what you think, we'll be happy to chat with you about it.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Well.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:11:42 PM EST] <bynw> Yes since it can stand alone. It's a good introduction to new readers for the series if for some strange reason they don't care for it.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:12:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> And if you do like Book 1, then it's even more good news that the series only improves from there.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:12:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> One of my Discord servers has formed a habit of asking new readers (to another ongoing series) to post a "First time [username] read through" thread where even the old hands can experience a first-time reader's thoughts. Obviously, it's not a requirement, but it's something that a lot of people have done, and it's fun to see someone read something for the first time that you've <clipped message>
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:12:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> read about a zillion times. New perspectives and all.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:12:47 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> steps off the transfer portal and waves hello
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:13:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:13:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> BRB, need tea and that's the last glass in the pitcher, so got to make more tea.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:13:09 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi Shiral!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:13:16 PM EST] <bynw> Hi Shiral
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:13:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> Has the rain stopped, shiral?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:13:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I have to wonder what different KK protagonists would think of each other if they all met in a bar. 🤔
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:13:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hi Shiral!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:14:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That would be a cool story for you to write, Marc.... 😉
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:14:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> A priest, a duke, and a saint walk into a bar...
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:14:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> We're having a breather this weekend, Bee. The sun is out and temps are in the high 60's. Alas, more rain is on the way this coming week. But hopefully no more atmospheric rivers
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:14:19 PM EST] <KK> lol
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:14:29 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <shiral_> wrings out her corner of California
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:14:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I've had a thought of a little time slip of Kelson's court circa regnal year Kelsonus 20 meeting late Brionius and HIS court.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:15:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh, fun
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:15:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I'm currently puttering around with a 15th Century Gwynedd story idea
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:15:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Have the first chapter written and just a smidge of Chapter 2
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:15:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I think Kelon would be happy to see his father, again. But they might have some vigorous arguments.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:16:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I was thinking more like Jared saying, "Um, you look like Dhugal, but older ... but why are you wearing McLean plaid?"
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:17:04 PM EST] <The_Bee> What do you think Jehanna would want to say to her husband?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:17:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> "Grandfather, let's sit down. It's kind of a long story..."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:17:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Assume Jehana wasn'
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:17:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> t out riding with Kelson and his close courtiers.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:17:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I can say for sure that Arnault would laugh wryly at this line from Alaric: "I dislike being the target of Heaven's special favors. It makes me uncomfortable."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:17:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I hope ONE thinkg she would say is "I'm sorry I put you through so much."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:18:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I was thinking more of Brion saying, "Your sister, Kelson? So Jehana and I are going to have another child" Kelson: "Well."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:18:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I hope ONE think she would say is "I'm sorry I put you through so much."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:18:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Well, that did happen...all too briefly
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:19:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Ouch!! No, I was thinking of a 12ish? year old daughter, wossername, of Jehana and Barrett de Laney.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:19:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Duke Richard: "You married my daughter, then???"
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:20:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Ahh. OK. According to the Codex, there was a daughter born after Kelson, but IIRC she died in infancy
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:20:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> She did. Princess Rosane.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:20:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> That reminds me: Did Jehanna and Barrett's marriage happen in canon yet?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:20:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Hi Everyone
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:21:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If you count the Codex as canon, then yes
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:21:04 PM EST] <The_Bee> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:21:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I've been wondering... and the answer might be in my local used book store, for all I know, but is there a consensus as to ... Color Theory in Kurtzian Magic? Or in other words, why is blue the color of Charissa's magic, Arnault de Saint Clair's astral body, and his great great nephew Adam's as well. If my memory is correct. It's also my favorite color, lol
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:21:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Hi!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:21:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hi Jerusha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:21:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I think KK was signalling the possibility of a marriage before the end of Bride of Kelsonstein. If only we could know her thoughts ...
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:21:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yes, by that measure, Jehana and Barrett were married just a few months after Kelson and Araxie
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:22:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Kelsonstein?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:22:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Interesting question, @Marc_du_Temple
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:22:29 PM EST] <The_Bee> We once speculated in chat that one's favorite color might become one's aura's color.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:23:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Go blue team, then.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:23:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Now I'm picturing Araxie played by Madeline Kahn
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:23:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Alaric's aura is green, which might be because of the Corwyn Heraldry, and Kelson's is red. Possibly because he is a Haldane. At which point, you'd better like wearing red.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:23:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hey Jerusha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:24:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Provided it is a colour and not a viscous fluid
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:24:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> ha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:24:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Green is also a color associated with Healers, though in that case it doesn't necessarily carry over to auras, since the other ones we see in the Kelson era don't have green auras.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:24:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Evie the thought of Queen Madeline Kahn makes my head hurt!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:25:35 PM EST] <The_Bee> Is Madeline Kahn a blonde?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:25:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Depends on the movie
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:25:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I was referring back to the Bride of Kelsonstein reference, Bee
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:26:13 PM EST] <The_Bee> I have no idea who she is.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:26:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Me either, though the name is familiar
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:26:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She was a comedic actress who did a LOT of Mel Brooks' movies.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:26:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Young Frankenstein the movie, Bee
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:26:46 PM EST] <The_Bee> Bride of Frankenstein?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:26:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She also played Mrs. White in the 1986 "Clue" movie.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:26:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Ah, that would explain why I don't know
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:27:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I still nominate Katie McGrath in a "pale" blonde wig for Charissa. It would be quite a return to form for her, too.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:27:35 PM EST] <The_Bee> I liked thee Clue game better than the Clue movie.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:27:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> She was so funny in Clue lol

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:31:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> KK! How are you doing? We've all been chatting along about this and that and you're just sitting back and watching. Or whatever it is you do. 🙂
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:31:21 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Hope everyone had a good week.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:31:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> @Marc_du_Temple, did you know she improvised that "flames, flames" bit?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:31:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> That doesn't surprise me
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:31:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I did! That's what makes her a cut above the rest. The cream of the crop.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:32:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I don't think I ever saw her do a bad job; she was in some movies that were less than spectacular, but *she* was always worth watching.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:32:20 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Who?

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:32:52 PM EST] <HoundMistress> For once this week, I am NOT hungry. Finally got all of the Prednisone down.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:32:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Oh goodness, I thought you meant KK improvised the "flames, flames" bit, and I was trying to figure out what book that was in!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:33:03 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Love Madeline Kahn!!!

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:33:15 PM EST] <The_Bee> Speaking of "Goos", the city of Brookline have adopted their many geeese as mascots. They've having statues of wild geese set up all over town.

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:34:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Duncan would probably say a lot of words that ordinarily would be vastly inappropriate coming from a priest, but I think under the circumstances, he'd be allowed some leeway.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:34:42 PM EST] <KK> Yike, that on top of he knee.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:34:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh no, HM!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I hope you're feeling better, now HM
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Wishing you clean air and clear lungs, HM!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:14 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Better now, but Pred makes me eat, and eat and eat!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Yes! Feel well please.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:18 PM EST] <The_Bee> I hope everything gets better for KK and HM.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:25 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It does that to a lot of people.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:32 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Thanks, Bee & everyone.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:40 PM EST] <KK> I'm doing ok.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Prednisone kicks the appetite into turbo-charged overdrive.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:35:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Where is Rhys Thuryn when you need him??? I'll bet he could make knees feel better
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:36:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> A calm week, KK?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:36:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I bet he could.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:36:10 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yes, it does, but it wore off this morning & now I am full.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:36:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> He could prolly do something about the lumps in lungs as well.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:36:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I dunno, Rhys seems to make some ladies' knees feel weak around here, so are you sure, Shiral? 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:36:29 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yes, he could just heal our real knees.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:37:00 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yes, probably could do the lungs, too. I always liked that he was discovered by healing the cat.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:37:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, I WAS referring specifically to knees that HURT, Evie! 😉
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:37:20 PM EST] <The_Bee> ?? I thought Healing worked better on wounds than on diseases.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:37:36 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> It's probably easier for a Healer to work on knees on a patient who is either seated or lying down anyway.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:37:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> 😉
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:04 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Probably but the knees get their pads and things wear out, which could be considered an injury.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> HM, I've had a brochial infection (bronchitis or mild pneumonia) for over a week now, so I feel ya in the lung department.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It does, Bee. Though it might help with the physical changes that happen as a result of a disease, such as easing inflammation, maybe.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> "Oh, healer, use your hands and lay on me!" "You mean laying on of hands." "You heard me!"
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Oh my!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Healers have to be pharmacists as well, so he'd at least give you something that would help the symptoms
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:47 PM EST] <HoundMistress> LOL!! TM.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:38:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> By the point of joint replacement, the cartilage is basically gone, so I'd bet a Healer could help with that pretty easily.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:39:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> (that's not too much here, is it?)
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:39:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> "But...I'm MARRIED!!"
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:39:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Especially one as well-trained and powerful as Rhys.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:39:16 PM EST] * bynw is back
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:39:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Just let your knees go weak and lie down so the nice (and nice-looking) Healer can do his work. 😄

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:39:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Welcome back!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:40:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Just an itty bitty teaser, Marc. Just keep reading....
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:40:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> I think I might run screaming
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:40:12 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Well, HE looks like a fop.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:40:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> Who is that supposed to be?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:41:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, you won't meet Rhys until the Camber books, but he tends to be a favorite character for lots of people reading that part of the series.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:41:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Prince of Wales from Blackadder 3, maybe?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:41:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> That's Prince George... IV, isn't it?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:41:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> That's Prince George. In real life, the regent that took over after George III went insane, but in Blackadder Series 3, one of the funniest characters.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:41:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Yes, BA3
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Hugh Laurie, who often played the dim-witted upper-class foil to Blackadder?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Exactly!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Thought that was Hugh Laurie
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I really need to find and watch the Blackadder series someday. I'm familiar with it from hearing everyone I know quote it, but have never managed to watch it myself.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Me either
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:42 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Where can you watch it?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:49 PM EST] <KK> Blackadder was fun.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I did it on Amazon Prime a few years ago.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:42:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I used to think that Tim McInnery was the same person as Hugh Laurie since they both played t he same basic role throughout all four series' of BlackAdder.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I think Blackadder 2 was the best, personally. It was set in Elizabethan times, so everyone in sight could chew the scenery.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Season 3 might be my favorite, but it's all good.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> EVIE! YOU JEST!!!!!!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I wish, Nezz
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> I think Blackadder 2 was the best, personally. It was set in Elizabethan times, so everyone in sight could chew the scenery. In reality, the real people were chewing it more.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:30 PM EST] <The_Bee> IIRC from House, Hugh Laurie had very blue eyes
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Give me your address, I'll overnight the DVDs... 😉
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:43:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> That pic isn't the best angle for eye color, though.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:44:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> https://youtu.be/XfBTe_N-m6U
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:44:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I might have to bite the bullet and subscribe to Amazon Prime, if only to watch the several things on there I'd really like to watch. Though it's so darn expensive! 😭
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:44:54 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I thought on House he had a fake American accent?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:44:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> You can do it for a month and then unsubscribe.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:44:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> This clip is fun because he's playing a coarse american slipping into a silly british accent... which isn't his actuaaal speaking voice, but instead his George voice.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:45:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Hugh Laurie IS British, so his accent should be, too
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:45:26 PM EST] <The_Bee> I just read a story that blue eyes aren't really blue.. The color comes from reflected light, like the sky and the sea.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:45:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> or something like it, lol
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:45:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> So if my eyes aren't really blue...
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:46:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yeah, but the character of House was American, so he was doing an American accent as that character, and then when his American character has to "fake" a British accent, he got very silly with it because why not
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:46:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Pretty sure all colors work that way, but it's been awhile since I really thought about it.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:47:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Never hurts to compare someone's eyes to something else nice, of course.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:47:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Jerusha, if they're not blue, they're probably lasers. 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:47:37 PM EST] <The_Bee> They're colorless, according to an Interesting Facts story. The article didn't mention green or hazel eyes. It also said that all bue-eyed people may be descended from one common ancestor.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:48:03 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Oh, I have blue eyes! Hi, cousins!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:48:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> In my case, probably a Neanterthal
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:48:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hiya fellow blue-eyed cuz!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:48:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I have blue contact lenses, so I guess that makes me adopted into y'all family
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:48:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Neanderthals are underrated.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:48:38 PM EST] <The_Bee> Mine are sort of blue and sort of greenish.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:48:49 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Oh, I say, how's our dear Auntie?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:49:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Every year we find more evidence that they were more like us than we realized.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:49:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I have blue contact lenses, so I guess that makes me adopted into y'all's family
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:49:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Evie, we'll take you!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:49:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I have blueish eyes
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:49:17 PM EST] <HoundMistress> LOL!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:49:46 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Mine have the dark circle around the outside edge of the whateverit is.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:50:12 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Iris
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:50:13 PM EST] <The_Bee> Since neanderthal genes, some Neanderthals must have interbred with some Cro-Magnons.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:50:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Bingo, Bee!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:50:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Would they be Neander-Magnons?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:50:45 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Bubbie is crying bcz I'm not where she wants me to be.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:51:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Bubbie?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:51:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> Since some people today have neanderthal genes, I meant. My computer likes to rearrange my posts.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:51:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> They would be my great great great grandpa, judging by my forehead
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:51:22 PM EST] <HoundMistress> My youngest cat. She will be 1 in April.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:51:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Cro-thals. Which are also called jingle bells.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:51:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Mine are brown, and my bio-dad (whose eyes were blue) used to tell me I was "brown-eyed and full-a bull-a," as in full of (something that starts with "bull" and ends with [expletive deleted])."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:51:51 PM EST] <KK> Where does she want ou to be, HM?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> So in a moment of childish inspiration, I told him that his eyes were blue because he was an airhead.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:18 PM EST] <KK> lol
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:25 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Wherever SHE wants to be. Because the world revolves around her.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Of course!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> typical cat
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Because cat
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Definitely a cat.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Cat.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:52:58 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yes, all that.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:53:01 PM EST] <KK> Ah, so where is she besides on your lap, which she'd prefer?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:53:28 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I don't know, maybe the living room. She rides on my walker like it's her personal taxi.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:53:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Dmitri wants to be between me and my keyboard
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:53:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> It's my baby kitties' birthday today. They're 17.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:53:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> KK, is there anything symbolic in the eye colors of your characters? I hope your week has been pleasant, btw.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:53:53 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Happy Birthday, kitties!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:54:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> She likes gray eyes, that's for certain
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:54:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> You mean the walker *isn't* her personal taxi? Blasphemy!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:54:08 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> happy bday
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:54:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Happy Kitty Birthdays!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:54:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Happy birthday kitties!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:55:06 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Itty Bitty Lily Kitty is so easy but Bubbie is all spoiled cat.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:55:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Awww, happy day of gracing the world with cute kitten-ness
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:55:19 PM EST] <KK> Eye color just somewhat indicates familial connections. And grey eyes are somewhat unusual in our world, so I assigned them as a Haldane trait.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:55:51 PM EST] <HoundMistress> And the Haldanes are related to the Morgans, somehow, right?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:55:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Back when Alaric could have been Kelson's older half brother
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:08 PM EST] <The_Bee> Remind me: What color are Alaric's eyes?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> His uncle, I think
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:13 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Gray
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Grey
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:14 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Grey
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> We were discussing shield colors earlier, @KK, and if those have any particular significance?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Bee, Alaric's eyes are gray too
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:56:45 PM EST] <KK> Daphne wants nothing to do with my walker.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:57:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> I recall seeing only one real person with gray eyes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:57:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Probably doesn't want it run over her tail, KK
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:57:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I had a schoolmate who had Haldane coloring, black hair and gray eyes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:57:39 PM EST] <KK> Exactly, shiral.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:57:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> That makes a lot of sense, thanks! I really liked the part in DR where Kelson got mad at the intruder and his eyes almost started glowing. Very excited to see him at full potential.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:58:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> If you go far enough back, I think they are related through Camber, though Laurna isn't here tonight, and she's the one who pieced together how Duncan and Morgan are both descended from him, and IIRC there is a connection to the Haldanes from Camber also.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:58:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Brion's half-brother. *shudder*
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:58:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Kelson might be young, but you don't mess with him!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:59:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And back when the Pod-Child was still working as a church youth counselor, one of the youths basically could have been cast as first-trilogy Kelson. His sister is still a close friend of hers, but her eyes are blue. The black hair and fair skin is very striking.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [7:59:59 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Daddy had hair that looked black and very blue eyes. I'm the only one that got the eyes, but didn't get the hair.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:00:10 PM EST] <KK> Fortunately, Kelson is usually well self-controlled when it comes to his powers. A good trait for a king.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:00:10 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> My schoolmate got assigned to be Snow White in the English class wherein we had to take a fairy-tale plot and write it as a short play in the style of Shakespeare, because all she needed was red lipstick for the role.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:00:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> A good trait for a Deryni in general, or there might not have been a Restoration.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:00:47 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I'm really attracted to that Combo. My first big crush had them.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:00:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Some people are just born to play certain characters. I like to think I'd be a good Columbo.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:00:57 PM EST] <The_Bee> i wwonder ifthey're descended from Jerusha. If my theory of a recessive gene for Heaaling, jerusha may have two healing enes, which would make herdescendantshealers.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:01:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> My grandfather had very dark hair and crystal blue eyes as a young man. When he moved next door to my grandmother, she took one look at him and told her friend, "That's the man I'm going to marry." 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:01:08 PM EST] <KK> My dad also had black hair and blue eyes. Don't know where my green eyes came from.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:01:32 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And she made it happen!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:01:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> perhaps it was magic.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:01:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Turns out eye color is a lot more complicated than the simple Punnett Squares from school. Lots more genes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:01:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Sounds like Revanne and her late husband. Decision made.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:02:10 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Mom had red, course hair & green eyes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:02:16 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> My brothers got my dad's curly hair. BUT they also both went gray at 40
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:02:47 PM EST] <HoundMistress> We grey late in my family.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:02:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yup, my hair and eyes are both dark brown, Ex had light brown hair and blue eyes, and our offspring has light brown hair and green eyes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:02:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> My dad likes to say I must have got his hair, because he hardly has any left
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:03:12 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Quanah wants his dinner. BRB
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:03:23 PM EST] <KK> Eye color can be very complicated.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:04:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> DH and I both have (or had) very dark brown hair and brown eyes. We were really surprised when DS turned out to be a little redhead.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:04:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> And very fun to describe in writing. 😁
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:04:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> Blond children sometimes grow up to be brunette adults. Mom and bro did; we girls stayed blonde.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:04:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> My mother-in-law had golden blonde hair as a young child and dark brown hair as an adult.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:04:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> I was very light blonde as a childe, but my hair has been growing darker since I was about 18. It's a dark ash now.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:04:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Not as dark as DH's hair, but more medium-dark.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:04:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> My hair just got darker and darker.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:06:00 PM EST] <The_Bee> I was born reddish-blond. it soon faded to blond.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:06:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> My brothers all three had blond hair as children and all grew into brunette adults. Oldest brother's hair sort of split the difference between Dad's medium brown and their mom's vivid red, sort of dark auburn. Middle brother had Dad's hair, and youngest brother's hairline has gone so far back that he's said the heck with this and shaves his head, but I think it'd be brown if he let it grow.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:06:11 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Daddy was a cotton top, very white hair, as a kid, but then turned very dark.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:06:36 PM EST] <bynw> yeah my hair was blond when i was younger and darkened over time
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:06:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I had auburn hair as a toddler
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:07:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Then brown with chestnut highlights by the time I got to school age
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:07:28 PM EST] <bynw> mine has hits of red. lots of redheads in my family
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:07:33 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Baby bro and me had reddish blonde hair but middle bro had red hair and green eyes. He hated it, of course.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:07:47 PM EST] <The_Bee> I wanted to be a red-head, but the closest I got was strawbery blonde.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:07:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Mine was black when I was born, turned dark brown by the time I was a year or so old, and has stayed there until it started going gray, so now it's brown-with-icicles.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:08:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Even when it was so dark, people kept confusing it with black, if I stood in the sun you would see the reddish highlights
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:08:06 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Baby bro and I...
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:09:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Sorry to switch topics, but I don't recall any description of Ian Howell's facial hair, but I feel like he's the kind of guy to have some. Is that accurate? I'm going to make a model on HeroForge depicting the duel between him and Alaric.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:09:24 PM EST] <KK> Brown with icicles, DR. I like that description.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:09:41 PM EST] <The_Bee> hair can be classified as blond, red, brunette or sable.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:09:49 PM EST] * CambersGhost [discord] <azdesertrose> curtseys.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:10:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I can't recall, @Marc_du_Temple , but do you have paper versions of the books, or Kindle? I love the Kindle versions because you can do a keyword search for every reference of a character to see if there is any description of his facial hair mentioned anywhere.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:10:53 PM EST] <KK> Ian's facial hair: I've always thought of him with a thin, pencil mustache, like Errol Flynn-ish.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:11:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I have my copy about a foot away from my head for reference. I came to class prepared. 😅
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:11:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> And if you don't already have the Kindle editions, keep an eye on Early Bird Books/Open Road Media because they frequently do a sale on the Kindle editions; sometimes they'll do an omnibus deal with a trilogy as a single purchase.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:11:51 PM EST] <KK> Tee-hee, Marc!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:12:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I thought Ian had a little Van Dyke style beard. (Not a period description, but...)
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:12:17 PM EST] <HoundMistress> As soon as I read about Evaine and Rhys, I just knew that was where Alaric and Duncan got their healing & blonde hair.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:12:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Thank you! That makes sense to me. He definitely has a dashing effect on most of his victims. Charissa beat him at his own game, it seems.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:13:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> My impression was that Charissa viewed Ian rather in the category of "useful fool."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:13:35 PM EST] <The_Bee> ? I thought Duncan's hair was brown or light brown.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:13:36 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Charissa dandled him, luring him with the carrot he was never going to get.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:13:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Duncan's is brown
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:13:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Alaric is blond. Duncan has brown hair and blue eyes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:13:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Duncan's hair is light brown.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:13:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Ian needs a pencil moustache so he can twirl it.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:14:00 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Yes, light brown
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:14:04 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And as soon as she was Queen, Ian would have been done for
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:14:25 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Oh, yes. He'd have been in the dungeon or beheaded.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:14:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Of course, he was done for, anyway!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:14:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Am I misremembering or did Charissa kill him anyway?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:14:59 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> If he betrayed Brion, he'd have no problems betraying her
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> She finishedd the job
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:05 PM EST] <HoundMistress> She wouldn't save him.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> She coup d'graced, him, iirc
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:09 PM EST] <KK> Think a young Vincent Price for Ian.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:09 PM EST] <The_Bee> or refused to save him?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> She finished the job that Alaric started
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I think Charissa knew that he'd have betrayed her and was waiting for him to outlive his usefulness, which he did.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> That's exactly what I read this morning, DR.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She was many things, but "stupid" isn't on the list.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:53 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Very uncharacteristic of Alaric to assume Ian was dead.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:15:55 PM EST] <KK> Yep, a tool from the beginning.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:16:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I nearly had heart failure. I still had Duncan on my mind when I read KK's "Think a young Vincent Price for..." and was really happy she ended that with "Ian"!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:16:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I mean, young Vincent Price was a pretty good-looking dude.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:16:35 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> But for DUNCAN? 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:16:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> https://tenor.com/view/haha-funny-lol-laughing-out-loud-giggle-gif-15515505 embed: https://tenor.com/view/haha-funny-lol-laughing-out-loud-giggle-gif-15515505
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:16:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Ditto bby!Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee, even Peter Cushing.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:16:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> No, he wouldn't have done for Duncan, true, wrong type of good-looking.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> And on that disturbing note, I am going to head out.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It's different types of attractiveness, I understand.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Young Ian McKellen? Yowza!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> night Jerusha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> See you later, Jerusha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> G'night, Jerusha.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:21 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Bye, Jerusha, have a great week!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Good night!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:24 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <jerusha2> Nighters, everyone!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Goodnight, Jerusha!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:17:39 PM EST] <The_Bee> Nighters, Jerusha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:18:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I mean, nowadays!Ian McKellen has the silver fox thing going on *quite* nicely, but young Ian McK was just . . to channel bby!DesertRose . . . babe-alicious!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:18:04 PM EST] <The_Bee> Nighters, Jerusha
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:19:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It almost seemed like she and Alaric were flirting in that library. I couldn't help but think Fitz Farseer would have made it look like an accident then. 🫢
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:19:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> KK, was there anyone in particular you tended to imagine in your head while creating Alaric and Duncan?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:20:00 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Alaric likes to toy with his stiletto, but I can see he's an honorable man.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:20:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Ian Richardson who played Francis Urqhart would make a good Loris.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:20:12 PM EST] <HoundMistress> LOL!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:20:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> She might have been flirting with Alaric, but if he were flirting back, it was only to keep her talking. Whatever she looked like, she was trying to do for Kelson and *that* would render the most beautiful person ugly in Alaric's eyes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:20:44 PM EST] <The_Bee> If you can imagine Loris being "good."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:20:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I completely agree. He would never be where Ian was.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:20:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I always do kind of wonder why Alaric walked off and LEFT Charissa in the Royal Library. Kind of a security breach, really!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:21:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Panic? But yeah, good point, Shiral.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:21:18 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Later they closed that portal.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:21:19 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Young men are foolish. I should know.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:21:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, I mean he would have done a great job at PLAYING Loris
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:21:44 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I tend to imagine the bishop from Ladyhawke when I think of Loris
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:21:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I keep telling myself "He was exhausted and grief-stricken."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:22:02 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yes, John Wood would have been my runner up
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:22:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> To the point I have difficulty imagining him looking like anyone else
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:22:09 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> To become old and wise, one must first be young and foolish. I think I'm at the interim stage of "middle-aged and a wiseass," personally.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:22:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> It WAS a long week (but a very well paced novel)
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:22:29 PM EST] <The_Bee> Or maybe Alaric understood that Kelson must face Charissa to solidify his claim to the throne.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:22:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And he'd ridden hell for leather all the way from Cardosa to help Kelson
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:23:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Destiny is all.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:23:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> So exhaustion, grief, and a sore backside/thighs do not add up to great decision-making.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:23:39 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> But when the woman who killed the late king and wants to kill his son shows up unexpectedly in the Royal Palace.....do you just walk away and LEAVE her there????
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:23:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> What's he supposed to do?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:24:41 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Maybe he knew Kelson needed him and he couldn't afford to get in a fight with her at that time.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:24:43 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Killing her might be an option? Though that would present its own difficulties.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:25:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Okay....so none of his options were great, just then!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:25:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah, if that fight had gone badly for Alaric, then Kelson would have been defenseless except for Duncan.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:25:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Alaric tries magic. Gets a lightning bolt to the face.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:25:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Alaric tries running her thru. Gets a lightning bolt to the sword.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:25:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Alaric makes a gracious retreat, hoping that Charissa will let him sweep out instead of gets a lightning bolt to the back.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:25:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Especially if Kelson hadn't been Empowered yet. (Was he? I don't remember the exact story sequence anymore.)
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:26:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> Maybe kelson had to beat Charissa himself to earn the full respect of the court.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:26:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> No, the ritual hadn't happened yet
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:26:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> And point taken
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:26:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Oh yeah, in that case Alaric was def NOT expendable
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:26:31 PM EST] <HoundMistress> She underestimated Alaric's power, but most full Deryni did.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:27:20 PM EST] <The_Bee> They thought the "Defender's Sign" was Alaric's ring. It was Camber's seal on the floor.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:27:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> 🦭
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:27:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I know he had his reasons. I was just joking about the differing approaches between two fantasy heroes I like. Alaric Morgan is definitely on the list now.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:27:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> anyone still here
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:27:54 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Yep!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:27:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Nope.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:27:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yup!

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:29:07 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That sounds fun
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:29:08 PM EST] <HoundMistress> Sounds like fun!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:29:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Did you dress up for it?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:29:26 PM EST] <The_Bee> Did you raise the Dickens?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:29:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Laurna does amazing Victorian costuming, Marc
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:30:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> That's actually really cool. :0
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:30:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> It use to be a fairly large street fair that decades ago we ran a booth at and sold patterns and dresses. but this year they went to a new venue. At a small historical house in the area.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:30:34 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I did not dress up. but my sister and BIL looked very nice.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:30:56 PM EST] <The_Bee> What's your favorite Dickens novel or character?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:31:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I haven't read Dickens in decades, but mine used to be A Tale of Two Cities. Sydney Carton
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:31:47 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Bee it has been years since I read any of those books. but I always like the scary old lady in her cob web house.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:32:12 PM EST] <The_Bee> I don't know that one.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:32:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It's set during the French Revolution, Bee
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:32:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Yes you do. just can not recall her name
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:32:32 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I liked A Tale of Two Cities but also liked Oliver Twist.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:33:07 PM EST] <The_Bee> Madame DeFarge?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:33:09 PM EST] Join Tom (62610b77@1A9CC611.6AFA4B67.63AD0D37.IP) has joined this channel.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:33:19 PM EST] <HoundMistress> The knitter lady?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:33:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Hi Tom, you finally made it during chat!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:33:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I should give Dickens a re-read. As I said, it's been decades, so there are probably lots of things that would hit differently now than when I was in my teens and young-20s
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:33:55 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I liked The Scarlett Pimpernel, too.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:33:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Great Expectations is the one with Miss Havisham, who lives in her house exactly as it was on her wedding day.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:34:24 PM EST] <The_Bee> MME DeFarge KNitted, but "cobweb house" doesn't feel like her.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:34:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Even with the Deryni books, I find myself seeing some events and characters a lot differently now that I am older enough to be some of the main characters' mom rather than seeing them as older guys.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:35:01 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> It's two different books, Bee. Madame DeFarge is in The Tale of Two Cities The Cobweb house is Great Expectations
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:35:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> IIRC there was an old woman who got upset because Mme DeFarge wasn't there for Darnay's supposed beheading.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:35:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I'm sure there was.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:36:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Yes I was thinking it was Havisham, but was not certain.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:36:53 PM EST] <The_Bee> Thanks. I never read Great Expectations
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> It's one of the few that I have read
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:15 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I have clothes to dry for work tomorrow, so reluctantly, I bid you all a good night & blessed week.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Good night, HM
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:26 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Goodnight, HM!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:27 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Stay healthy!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:28 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Good night HM
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> night HM, take care of your lungs and your knees
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:39 PM EST] <HoundMistress> I wil!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:40 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> Rest well!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:41 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Next week is Zoom chat, yes?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:41 PM EST] <The_Bee> Good night and good week, HM
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> So 3 hours earlier?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I brought home so scones and tea cakes. with lemon curd.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:37:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> 4 hours

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:06 PM EST] <KK> I'm trying to think whether I've actually read much Dickens. Most of what immediatel comes to min is from films.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> G'night, HM!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> 4, 3, whatever my Early Chat alarm is set to. 😉
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:34 PM EST] <The_Bee> 3pm eastern time. Daylight savings?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I rely on my phone to tell me where to go and what to do
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:48 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> I brought home some scones and tea cakes. with lemon curd.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:52 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I read _Great Expectations_ in high school and other than _A Christmas Carol_, I think that's the extent of my Dickens reading.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:38:53 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> I think I've read David Copperfield, Great Expectations, and Oliver Twist and Christmas Carol
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <marc_du_temple> I got to go, but take care, all.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Night, Marc Keep reading!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:25 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> cya marc, come chat Deryni with us here in chat any time
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:30 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Good night Marc
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:37 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> It doesn't have to be on Sunday, Marc
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I probably should revisit Dickens. I remember disliking GE because I felt like it could have told the same story in about 2/3 the length.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:42 PM EST] <The_Bee> There are a multitude of Christmas Carol movies.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:42 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> yeah
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> There is someone here much of the time
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:51 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> G'night, Marc. Zoom net week unless KK says otherwise.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:39:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> *next week
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:05 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> That's my problem with almost ALL of Dickens, DR
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:17 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Agree Shiral
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:21 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I just turned my Zoom Chat alarm on my phone so I won't forget
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:22 PM EST] <KK> Zoom next week. And clocks change 2 weeks from now.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:31 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Yeah, exhibit A of why my heart wasn't broken to skip Victorian Novelists in college.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:33 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Zoomie zoom zoom!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <stnezz> Dickens got paid by the word, so yeah, he took more words to tell his story. 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:55 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> I read that as Victorian Noodles
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:56 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Oh my, are we getting that close the clock changes. I was just getting use to this time zone
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:40:58 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Well, he had a lot of kids to feed....
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:41:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> LOL, Evie
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:41:20 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Exhibit B was the prof who taught it wasn't one of my faves. He had a tendency to interrupt you before you'd finished what you were saying, and for me, if he'd let me finish my [expletive deleted] sentence, I wasn't as wrong as he thought.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:42:12 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Say what one will for Dr. Morrison, the Shakespeare professor (and she was a stickler for rules and a tough grader), but she let you finish your damn sentence before she started talking.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:42:47 PM EST] <The_Bee> My high school played "Tale" but the never gave us enough time to see the ending.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:43:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Perhaps you should have been in Victorina times. DR. I have read so many victorian fashion magazine articles including love stories. They are the most wordy things you ever read.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:43:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Because one of the rules for which she was such a stickler was that you respect each other's time; you show up on time and don't leave early, and you don't interrupt people because that's rude.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:44:06 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> No, I wouldn't have done well as a Victorian lady. The clothes are very pretty, but for the rest of it, nah. 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:44:25 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> They would take three paraghraps to say a lady wore a yellow blouse with a blue skirt.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:44:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Nobody's got time for THAT anymore!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:44:50 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Soooo...Early Laurna first draft manuscript writing style, then? 😉
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:45:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> LOL Now you know where I got it from
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:45:15 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Which is what drove me guano about Dickens and Hardy (whom I also read in high school).
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:45:38 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> Way, way more words than were needed to make the point.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:45:57 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> They'd have devoted a chapter to say "The Cow jumped over the Moon."
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:46:11 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <tm_9039> Paid by the word, mayhaps?
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:46:18 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> For Dickens, yes.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:46:23 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah. I plead guilty too...one of my research papers was returned with the notation "First paragraph ended on page 2? Not in the 21st Century!" I blame Dickens for that one. 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:46:29 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> That would be an entire story Shiral
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:46:45 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <shiral_> Yes, because they'd start with the birth of the cow!
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:47:03 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> Yeah. I plead guilty too...one of my research papers was returned with the notation "First paragraph ended on page 2? Not in the 20st Century!" I blame Dickens for that one. 😄
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:47:13 PM EST] <KK> Lol
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:47:25 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> I know a lot of Dickens' writing was done for magazines, with the novels serialized, and that work paid by the word.

[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:48:22 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> There are many serialized novesl in the fashion magazines. It would take the entire year, 12 issues to finish the single story
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:48:46 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <evie.delacourt> That reminds me of when my family sat for ages at a steakhouse waiting for our meal. About half an hour in, we looked out the window and there was a cattle truck stopped at a red light. My dad quipped, "Look, here comes my steak now!"
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:48:49 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <azdesertrose> The aforementioned Dr. Morrison once told me that I was one of the few undergrads she'd ever taught that she would let get away with my long, complex sentence structure because I knew how to do it clearly. I blamed Latin for that.
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:49:14 PM EST] <CambersGhost> [discord] <laurnarose> Trouble is I am always missing at least one month of any year. so I never get to read the whole thing
[Sunday, February 25, 2024] [8:49:22 PM EST] <KK> I'm going to check out now. I need to find a bill that needs to be paid, and that's going to involve digging through piles of papers. Ugh. But I'm making progress!

"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.)
