Quote of the Day

No, staying in the Zone wasn't easy. But for a lot of us-- certainly for me-- it was the only option. I'd rather make do in New Orleans than be rich anywhere else.

“A succubus on the set. Strike that, the health-conscious kid sister made it two… succubuses. Succubusees? Succubi? Stupid Latin correspondence course.”

Quote of the Day

"Reason never works. There's an inherent bias in the system. The attacker has the offense, which makes the defense appear defensive, therefore guilty. "

Quote of the Day

“I love you, Ethan, and I love this city. And however much I fought, I love this goddamn House. It's part of me, and I'm part of it. I'm not going to stand here and watch a man tear down everything that you've build. I'm not. And if that means I have to chase another man who threatens this House, or apologize to you more than I like, so be it. I don't want that, but I can live with it. Because I can't live without you.”

Quote of the Day

"Entering a novel is like going on a climb in the mountains: 
you have to learn the rhythm of respiration, acquire the pace; otherwise you stop right away."

Quote of the Day

"I guess I make things that need energy stronger. I'm like a walking battery."
"You are the table everyone wants at Starbucks," Gansey mused as he began to walk again.
Blue blinked. "What?"
Over his shoulder, Gansey said, "Next to the wall plug."

And in a way I have always thought that words are alive a little, for they can whisper sweet nothings and roar dragon flame with equal efficiency.

The Dangling Plot Line: The Fever Series

As regular readers know quite well, the majority of us are completely, totally, 100% obsessed with Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. We've written numerous posts about it. Several of us have traveled to New Orleans to attend release parties for this series. We've all read the whole series multiple times. If you look at our What the Wenches are Reading posts, you'll see that every couple of months someone pops back in to the Fever world. I think you get the idea. We are now on to the final book in the series, Feversong. Yes, I know Ms. Moning will be writing two more books set in the Fever world. But, we don't know what those are going to be yet. We don't know if those will be Mac's story or Dani's story. So, for all intents and purposes, this is it. The final chapter. Considering this is the final book in this arc, there are a pretty good amount of loose ends to tie up. That's why I'm here today. I'm going to discuss the major story lines that are still dandling precariously on the edge of the cliff. Join me after the jump to see what we have left to tie up. I feel like a spoiler warning is unnecessary, but just in case.... Spoilers ahead!!

Quote of the Day

But, even if they've seen (and actually noticed) you doing daily five-minute pickups, that first time as a family will be rough and not the least bit fun.

Your otherwise intelligent children may claim to have never known where scissors or glue or toothpaste go. They will suddenly feel exhausted and suffer headaches and leg pain, and they may stare blankly over your shoulder in confusion when you remind them where you've kept the laundry hamper for all the days of their lives.
