Oliver’s story about Samantha Kingston reliving the last day of her life seven different times sees its central teen grapple with the many stages of grief as she goes through the different factors playing a role in her life, much like Hannah does over the course of 13 tapes.

The Truth About Alice by Jennifer Mathieu

Fans will recognize Hannah’s story in the tale of Alice Franklin, a teenage girl who’s been labeled a slut and is blamed for the death of quarterback Brandon Fitzsimmons. Mathieu’s unpacking of the “truth” about the titular teen, through that of four different people’s perspectives (including Alice’s own), will hook readers while providing readers with the same exploration of how actions can impact others. Order it here.

All the Rage by Courtney Summers

My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga

Fans will find themselves in Clay’s shoes as they read Warga’s novel about Aysel, a teen considering suicide.

Bang by Barry Lyga

Lyga gives readers a glimpse into Sebastian’s mindset - and that of his parents and friends - as he struggles to get over the biggest mistake of his life (shooting his infant sister when he was 4) 14 years later.

This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp

Tired of the way he’s treated, outcast Tyler Browne takes his fellow students and teachers hostage in this gripping debut.

Order it here.

Dreamland Burning by Jennifer Latham

Part of what makes 13 Reasons Why so compelling is not only the mystery of each tape but also how current listener Clay may have contributed to Hannah’s suicide. Latham recreates this same sense of mystery as Rowan attempts to find out the identity of the skeleton discovered in her backyard and how it connects to the Tulsa race riots of 1921, which readers experience in alternating flashbacks through fellow teen, William. Order it here.

Perks of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

Readers will recognize aspects of Clay in Chbosky’s sweet, introspective loner, Charlie, in this coming-of-age tale that captures teen life - and some of the ways they deal with various kinds of trauma. (It was turned into a movie, starring Emma Watson and 13 Reasons Why star Dylan Minnette lookalike Logan Lerman.) Order it here.

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

If you haven’t checked out the book on which the Netflix series is based, then Asher’s bestseller is a definite must-read. While the show adds “bonus content” it’s ultimately expounding upon the deeper themes captured in Asher’s debut. Also, included is the book’s original ending which revealed that Hannah Baker had actually survived. Order it here.

Characters: PCs, NPCs, and the odd comment from God

Dungeons and Discord has six main player characters and a couple of interesting NPCs. Here’s a quick rundown of the people so far:

First off, we have Temp Placeholder of the New Jersey Placeholders. He’s a wood elf monk who grew up in Saintshaven, and knows the town and its secrets (and its people) fairly well. He’s following the Way of the Open Hand, and his talents include smithing and armormaking.

Next up: Tiska Shepherd, the tiefling druid from a farming town. Abandoned at birth by her mother, Tiska was raised by a pair of lesbian farmers and really knows how to work with plants and animals, which naturally led to her being a druid of the circle of the land, of the forest. A good-natured being, she’ll always try and talk down natural enemies. She was driven out of her hometown by a series of unfortunate circumstances and some generic racism, and is currently on a search for her birth parents.

Third is Zackrow, the tabaxi Divination wizard. Zackrow spent his life learning things and going places, and is currently on a crusade to learn more about the planes of existence and write a book. He previously spent his time aboard a skyship courtesy of a couple of eccentric noble friends, learning about air magic. Zackrow’s true love is linguistics, however, and he wants to learn every language he possibly can, no matter where he has to go. He casts magic using a broken wristwatch as an arcane focus.

Brom Stouthammer is a fighter, and one of the last remaining members of his clan: a proud clan that was decimated while staging a surprise attack on a duregar fortress. They fell into a drow trap and were completely annihilated; Brom is following the lead of his lost brother, the only one not confirmed dead, and recieved information that this brother was seen in Saintshaven. Brom is a skilled gemcutter and smith, and seeks to find any vestiges of his clan that he possibly can.

Minato Virva is a human rogue from a backwater town to the southeast of Saintshaven. She’s a rogue looking to squeeze her way into business; she’s opportunistic and is searching for a way to make some money and perhaps a name for herself. She certainly didn’t sign up for a plane-hopping trip, but she’s happy to go along if there’s money to be made. She loves to study other cultures and practices magic.

Finally, Mir Elling. Mir, the granddaughter of the great kenku pirate Hana, has decided that her life needs more adventure, and is trying to seek it out. Her religion, the doctrine of the Celestial Family, dictates that she help as many people as possible; she’s a healer, a brilliant light, and a brave warrior to those around her. Closing down a dangerous rift is an all-in-one adventure for Mir, and she’s forging onwards with her beak held high.

A couple of important NPCs were revealed in the first session, including:

- Lorelai Riversong, an incredibly intelligent and talented (along with very enthusiastic) blue dragonborn wizard who leads the Rift research team
- Justin Riversong, Lorelai’s asherati brother, a healer and evocation wizard who accompanies Lorelai on her journeys.

More to come!

Hometown Glory - Chapter 2: Sanguine (reuploaded)

I hope this ends up being worth the wait for some of you.

The tale of two cities according to Heiko and Stephi - Part 26

After all the party posts we stay at the night life. Why? Just because we wanted to post another photo with blinking lights and of course with long exposure.

On the first photo you can see the view on Breslauerplatz (in Cologne), taken at the station.

On the second photo you can see Prinzregentenstrasse and Luitpoldbrücke (Munich) taken at the “Angel Of Peace” statue.

Okay, I know, that’s not nightlife, only streets at night. But since we already showed the train-stations of our hometowns, this series missed the road traffic. Like in every city the arterial roads of Cologne and Munich are full with cars the whole day and only in the late hours it’s a bit more quiet on the streets.

This weeks praise to the cyclists.
