Daniel James Howell • June 11, 1991 • Gemini 

Gemini has two souls in one body. The ablaze and the obscure. 

When chaos is expected, yet solace is found. 

You see, just like solar eclipse, 

Gemini commence darkness on their world, only to ignite it again.

Things from the AMA

If you didn’t know this, Marie Lu had a Q&A on Reddit last night. So in this post, there is a summarization of the AMA :D (WARNING: there are many things that contain spoilers from both Legend and The Young Elites)

•Marie has a scheme in her head that Legend, The Young Elites, and Warcross are all set in the same universe.
•Marie states that Legend was easier to write since TYE was a bit more challenging.
•She had four manuscripts rejected before Legend.
•She visualizes her characters first before writing since it helps her develop their personalities and profiles
•Some of Marie’s favorite books are: Six of Crows, Watership Down, Redwall series, Illuminae series, Proxy, Furthermore, Harry Potter, An Ember in the Ashes, Ready Player One, and The Martian.
•Her favorite games are Assassin’s Creed 2, Journey, Sonic 2, and The Last of Us
•She is currently playing Overwatch and League of Legends
•On a typical day, Marie can write about 1500 words; on a good day, she can write around 3500 words, and on a bad day she can write about 500 to none.
•While she writes, she usually snacks on potato chips and Flaming Hot Cheetos
•If she could date one of her characters (if she were a teen girl), she would date Day or Magiano
•Legend was inspired by Les Miserables while TYE was inspired by history, the Renaissance, Assassin’s Creed, and villains in pop culture.
•There MIGHT be a Legend epilogue someday
•There will be no Legend movie at the moment, but that might change in the future
• BUT she would like it to be a TV show so she, along with other people, are trying to make that possible
•SPOILERS: If John had survived, he would’ve joined the resistance with his brothers
•June doesn’t have a middle name
•Ages of some characters in TYE: Gemma is 15, Lucent is 21, Maeve is 20, and Magiano is 18.
•There are two versions of the ending of The Midnight Star but Marie decided to go with the “less dark one”
•TYE was meant to be mythology (that is why she always put quotes in the epitaphs before every the beginning of every chapter)
•They are also, however, actual events that occurred in their world
•Raffaele, at some point later in life, meets someone (*cough* a guy *cough*) who makes him happy
•Speaking of Raffaele, Marie did not had any inspiration for Raffaele. According to her, “she just wanted a character who was beautiful and incredibly perceptive)
•Marie’s favorite crossover ship is Metias x Raffaele
•FOX currently owns rights for The Young Elites
•The second draft for TYE movie screenplay has been finished
•She would love to do a Legend/The Young Elites coloring book if it were an option
•If her main characters had favorite TV shows: June would watch Sherlock, Day would watch Firefly, and Adelina would watch Breaking Bad and Game of Thrones
•Marie states that Batman would totally get along with June, bicker a lot with Day, and be mortal enemies with Adelina
•There will be no characters from Legend in Warcross, but there might be a distant character of a character
•Marie will be posting Warcross art next year
•Warcross will only have one POV
