    Dresden Files (most recent thread is archived) Peace Talks is finished

    The Murphy bits and the Lara Raith bits are the ones that most intrigue me. I also have been mispronouncing Marcone. I always pronounced the E.

    Masque of the Red Death feels especially appropriate.

    I don't think the Dresden Files are particularly myth heavy either. I think they are basically "monster of the book" series with a myth arc linking them.

    I remember when it was on, Jim Butcher constantly sang its praises. His fans were angry and argued with him. "BUT THEY CHANGED THINGS!"

    I enjoy the GREY BASTARDS but it's a bit....well intense in the misogyny (which is part of the lesson our heroes learn). I recommend WHERE LOYALTIES LIE as my all-time favorite. RHENWARS SAGA by M.L. Spencer didn't win but is one of my picks for who should have won. Ditto KINGS OF PARADISE.

    TIAMAT'S WRATH - Book 8 of Expanse (SPOILERS)

    Comparing Marco and religion is bizarre because the reason people follow a charismatic populist demagogue and the lifelong devotion people have with faith is something that has some Venn diagram overlap but, honestly, not really all that similar. It's reaching and you might as well say the reason people follow Trump is the fact they like money. Yes, there might be some there but it's not the primary or even secondary reason. Marco has the following he does because as a terrorist leader he promised global immediate and brutal revenge for a century of Belter oppression. It's not his certainty that attracts his followers but bloody revenge that he provides. That's like being certain about gravity. The cruelty is the point and he's providing an outlet for the Belt's hatred. He makes a lot of promises of glory but the appeal to the basest and nastiest instincts is something hes' fully capable of delivering.

    My big issue is that I think making the villains mind-controlled is a cheat as it deprives them of any real motivation. I'm quite fond of Cowl as a villain and finding out he's just one of the mentally tainted bad guys would be a real disappointment whether he's Simon or Justin both. Note that Justin being alive was also the plot for Season One of the Dresden Files TV show.

    I liked it, albeit not as much as the Harry Dresden Christmas where Mab gave his daughter the powers of Elsa. It indicates that Morgan was a lot more reasonable and well-informed than Harry thought. However, it also indicates that Morgan SHOULD have informed Harry (or Luccio) about Nemesis. As keeping that to yourself is a horrible horrible idea. I also wonder why the Wardens didn't go after Justin DuMorne, who was a Warden himself.

    Its a great work. Dyrk is awesome. Fun fact: I recommended Zachary Pike submit ORCONOMICS. It's awesome that he won.

    The thing is that was 14 years ago as of PEACE TALKS. Molly is now 31 and Harry's boss. She hasn't been his student in over a decade.

    I'm not sure Molly hasn't had any relationships, so much as they've never been as important to her as Harry. As we see with Morgan, "Lifelong love of your mentor" is a thing in the universe. As Bob said, Molly loves Harry and that's not ever going to change and any relationships will be measured against that.
