Palo Alto Market (11) Image by Daniel García Peris This volatile market is ideal for shorting stocks, says Jupiter’s Clunie Cyclical adjusted P/E ratios give you a good idea on 9 to 10 year view and most are priced for very low returns, especially the US. So given this does it make sense or is it a reckless decision? It seems OK.” An increasing tendency to bet against the … Read more on FE…
For Derv @tundrawarehouse‘s answer to the Robiny OCs post. As we’ve both griped about many a time, Mr Jarvis has drawn plenty of really great mice, rats, moles, shrews, stoats, hedgehogs, bats, squirrels, sables, and cats, but very few foxes. For some reason, they don’t really figure as even minor characters in the Deptford books, but there is apparently a single, solitary Hobber fox in The Oaken Throne.
Therefore, this stripy lil guy. One long-running headcanon which I was very pleased to be able to put to good use here was the thing about followers of the Raith Sidhe having fire magic. True believers in the Unholy Triad, wearing Their three-stone talisman, have the ability to pass through the greatest of infernos unscathed. If they work at it, a devout talisman-bearer may learn to call the flames at will and manipulate them as they choose. Such disciples are highly regarded as advisers to the High Priests, as they are believed to carry the blessing of Hobb, and often wear garments made from left-over scraps of the Bloody-bones costume to show their status within the cult.
its the anniversary of brian jacques death today and i’ve been thinking a lot about how this man shaped my formative years with his books. i remember my dad use to pressure me a lot into reading them (my brother didn’t like them but for some reason my dad, an avid sci-fi reader, knew and liked these books) and me being the mulish ass i am i didnt for a few years.
then one day i picked up mossflower and i was more than hooked. i was in love. i systematically read every single one of his books after that (i remember it so distinctly, that i followed martin’s story first before i found cluny the scourge). since then, some eight years ago, i’ve read the entire series at least four or five times. it’s insane! i’ve never been so enamoured by an authors books like this, not before and not since. i would reread the books after having let them sit a few months so i could try to solve the riddles with them and i spent a lot of time reciting his poetry to myself (god, that sounds a bit weird, but i really was at twelve so who’s surprised)
i started writing some really basic fanfiction around this time and his works really shaped my writing–how he used description to shape his world, how his plotlines were simple in nature but complex in the richness of his characters and the world around them. how the idea that good would prevail always sat right with me, even though i now know the world is never quite so black and white.
i don’t know. i always loved reading before i found the redwall series but i never really wrote in the same way before them. i found myself trying to mimic his accents and drawing my own redwall abbey and coming up with plans and characters to set in this incredibly vivid world he created.
it’s been a while now since i last read eulalia and im incredibly saddened that, at least from brian jacques own hand, redwall has come to an end. rest in peace mr jacques–you were a good man and gave a lot to the world, and to many, many children, stories that would endure for a lifetime
Oh man there are so many good ones. I have to go with Cluny the Scourge, hands down.
Cluny was definitely one of the more clever villains. He was super experienced too, and actually knew what he was doing, and for a long time, wasn’t blinded by rage or anything. He did go a little mad, though that’s Martin’s fault. As far as villains go, he’s kind of one I wouldn’t have minded actually winning?
Ungatt Trunn, Ublaz, and Tsarmina are some other favorites of mine.
