SJM Baltimore Book Event

Some notes from the questions portion of tonight’s event!

She is a proud hufflepuff bc of the common room, husband is Gryffindor

She would be in the Night Court bc she hates the sun

Cassian is Gryffindor
Azriel is ravenclaw
Elain hufflepuff
Nesta syltherin
Amren slyth/claw
Mor is Gryffindor
Rhys is slytherin
Feyre is hufflepuff (she literally said slytherpuff)

Unsung hero of acotar is Suriel!!!

Favorite power is Helion’s libraries

Mates can be same gender, as we saw in ACOWAR

Inspiration for Rhys is not her husband!!! They are both tall and handsome with dark hair, but rhys and Feyre’s bond *is* inspired by their relationship. Rhys also walked into her head like aelin and became Sarah’s second husband.

Lorcan vs Cassian, we win and they draw. They would fight to a stalemate then go get a beer and bond over lady problems. Then likely go to the Spring Court and start trouble.

Rhys vs Fenrhys are equally attractive, depends on preference.

Jamie (from Outlander) and Rhys would be friends but would be constantly in silent competition with each other.

(Always imagines rain clouds and white tee shirt contests with her guy characters, and abs)

She is more like feyre on her quiet days, more like aelin on most days, but identifies most with Fleetfoot.

Her deadlines are plotted out for years, so she has no option but to sit and write. Writing is a muscle that needs to be used and built. Her advice to aspiring writers is to not listen to the people who tell you to write something “serious or a real book.” If someone says “you can’t” tell them “watch me,” at least in your head. Keep your goal as your focus. Find the time and write. Do it!!!! Treat it seriously.
She would sit down everyday and write, even if it’s only 10 minutes a day. It’s the only way to get it done.

Quoted A League of Their Own, said that if it wasn’t hard everyone would do it. You have to hustle.

Each spinoff will be a stand alone novel and follow a different pairing in each. They will all eventually be connected in the end.
One might be a snow queen retelling. One might be a Russian/swan lake retelling but at this point she won’t give more details than that yet.

TOD runs parallel to EOS, it’s a “meanwhile on the southern continent.” Wrote 20,000 words in the first day and was chater 4. 193,000 words later and it’s the same length as EOS.
The timeline lines up perfectly. Nesryn, Chaol, and Irene plotlines and pov.
TOD never feels like work and is as close to her heart as HOF was. Is excited every time she reads it and edits. She was excited to expand on the TOG world. The southern continent is highly influenced by the Mongolian empire.
She is a huge G. Khan fangirl.

READ TOD BEFORE FINAL TOG. Major game changers and reveals, it all weaves together.

Editor who read TOD for review hated Chaol going into TOD, but she came out loving Chaol after.
SJM loves the journey and she cried a lot working on the book.

She reccomends Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Post ACOWAR read the Fever series (blonde southern girl tries to solve her sister’s murder). Star Touched Queen.

Her patronus (she wanted hers to be a velociraptor), she got an akami (sp?), the feathery-serpant creature from fantastic beasts.

the slytherin

Albus Severus’ sorting as seen by the Marauders


James: *excitedly* Another Potter for the Gryffindors.

Lily: You don’t know that.

James: Of course I do. Look at James, he is a Gryffindor. 

Lily: That’s the stupidest argument I have ever heard.

Sirius: He is a Potter though and a Weasley, there’s no way Albus is not a Gryffindor.

Remus: Lily, you know there’s no use arguing them, why are you still trying?

James: Because the sky is blue?

Remus: Yeah, you have a point.

Lily: I know he will probably be a Gryffindor but I just don’t want to see you disappointed if he ends up in Ravenclaw or something.

James: *offended* A Potter? In Ravenclaw? Please, Evans.

Lily: Albus is nothing like James love, you might be surprised.

James: I feel like you don’t want him to be a Gryffindor.

Lily: Don’t be ridiculous, of course I do.

James: Doesn’t sound like it.

Lily: I swear you are like a child sometimes.

James: What’s childish about knowing my grandson’s house?

Lily: That’s the thing, you don’t

Sirius: *whispering* Do you want to break it up or shall I?

Remus: Be my guest.

Sirius: OI! Enough. You bicker like an old couple.

Lily: Technically we are old Black.

James: Also you are one to talk, like you and Moony are different.

Remus: Hey! This is not about us mate.

Lily: *laughing* Now it is.

Sirius: I hate it when they do that.

James: Okay, he is on the stool. Come on another Gryffindor for the Potters.

Lily: *knowingly* The Hat is taking his time with him.

Sirius: It had taken almost 2 seconds with James.

Slytherin!

Sirius: WHAT? I was rooting for you. We were all rooting for you!

Lily: Told you.

James: Sly– Slyth– Slytherin?

Remus: *shocked* You didn’t say Slytherin Lils.

Lily: Get a grip of yourself.

James: B-but he’s a– a– Slytherin.

Lily: *scolding* He is your grandson.

James: But Slytherin?

Lily: Snap the fuck out of it Potter.

James: I won’t, let me suffer in silence please.

Lily: He is an idiot.

Sirius: I’m going to go join Prongs in his silent suffering.

Lily: Seriously?

Sirius: I’m too disappointed to even make a joke about that.

Remus: I think I’m down for the silent suffering, too.

Lily: You are being ridiculous.

James: He is the grandson of a Marauder, you are being ridiculous.

Lily: Merlin, how did I ever become friends with them, let alone marrying one?

Sirius: You love us. Now, we shall suffer in silence.

Jyn Erso: exploding fireworks, shots with friends, beat up combat boots that are practically destroyed but never going to bring replaced, drinking under the stars, hot wiring a car on a dare, skinned dipping at night, winging at exam, drunken chats at 3 am with your best friend, texts in emoji, borrowed shirts, ripped jeans, cat-sly smirks, chortling at attempts at being sexy, scuffed converse, chipped nail polish, days old eyeliner, no sense of personal space, sharing seats, arms slung over shoulders, chin-tilted-eyes-glinting-staring-you-in-the-eye-defiance, spitfire words thrown at you to cut to the bone, bruised knuckles, rough kisses, whispered apologies to the night

Cassian Andor: leather jackets, stone-still water, cold eyes and face, grease and oil, dirty hands, one favorite coat, loyal forever once you’re proven, whiskey bottles, maps in the glove box, box of bad memories, rare half-smiles, rarer grins, hooded eyes in a smokey bar, piggy-back rides at 2 am, swimming in the ocean at night, smoking on the roof under the stars, campfires and constellations, pet names in another language, scruffy beard and bags under eyes, perfect A+ exam with minimal studying, unreadable eyes staring you down, ice-cold voice tearing open half-healed wounds, bloody lip, calloused hands over smooth skin, teeth on skin, apologizes without speaking

GRYFFINDORS  LIKE      Jon  Snow,  Arya  Stark,  Jaime  Lannister,  Brienne  of  Tarth,  Ygritte,  Barristan  Selmy,  Robb  Stark,  Wylla  Manderly,  Beric  Dondarion,  Robert  Baratheon,  Gendry  Waters,  Thoros  of  Myr,  Asher  Forrester,  Sandor  Clegane,  Loras  Tyrell.

SLYTHERINS  LIKE      Daenerys  Targaryen,  Cersei  Lannister,  Sansa  Stark,  Petyr  Baelish,  Tywin  Lannister,  Jaqen  H’ghar,  Viserys  Targaryen,  Illyrio  Mopatis,  Ramsay  Snow/Bolton,  Euron  Greyjoy,  Taena  Merryweather,  Daario  Naharis,  Margaery  Tyrell,  Bronn.

HUFFLEPUFFS  LIKE      Samwell  Tarly,  Tommen  Baratheon,  Davos  Seaworth,  Eddard  Stark,  Syrio  Forel,  Aemon  Targaryen,  Gilly,  Jeyne  Westerling,  Catelyn  Stark,  Benjen  Stark,  Shireen  Baratheon,  Jorah  Mormont,  Arys  Oakheart,  Theon  Greyjoy,  Meera  Reed.

I’m not certain, but I’m guessing that Slytherin was the only dorm left undamaged after the battle of hogwarts seeing as it’s in a hard-to-get-to place, being under the lake and all.

can you imagine all these little first year Hufflepuffs and Gryffindors and Ravenclaws all crashing in the Slyth common room because they have no where else to go. Sure, the majority would have been evacuated before or during the battle so as not to get injured or in the way, but it’s unlikely that all would have been able to leave on such short notice.

imagine them all sitting huddled together because they’re afraid of these people who are supposed to be evil, who most of the school are apparently fighting a war against.

imagine the older Slytherins keeping their distance because they k n o w that the kids don’t trust them, but still sorting out beds for them, making sure that they’re all hydrated and fed, casting spells to make little floating candles that change colour like a nightlight for the kids who are scared of the dark. the more experienced kids casting silencing charms around the first years so that they can’t hear what is happening outside.

these tiny first year kids from different housing wondering how these people can be ‘evil’ at all.

Each house's friendships: Slyth edition
  • Gryffindor: a very competitive friendship !! probably a hatefriendship
  • Hufflepuff: don’t touch the Puff. Don’t even think of maybe trying to touch the Puff. You’ve been warned.
  • Ravenclaw: the type of friends that can sit together silently for 1587964 hours and it’s perfect (the Ravenclaw is probably reading)
  • Slytherin: “can’t sit with us”
Thoughts about Slytherin and Hufflepuff

Found this confession on the internet and I totally agree with it. Hufflepuffs are famous for their kindness and acceptance, but that doesn’t mean they could accept only someone equally good or kind. I think that Newt can easily be understanding towards darker parts of human nature like with dangerous creatures, he just accepts them for who they are.

I myself is a Slytherin but I always LOVED the idea of friendship between houses. Because what truly matters is personality, not the label you are given at the age of 11.

That’s why the mentioned friendship of Newt Scamander and Leta Lestrange in FBaWtFT so fascinates me. I can’t wait to find out more about Leta and her history with Newt.

Another interesting thing I found on the internet while browsing for some slytherin/hufflepuff related pictures is that badgers (the symbol of Hufflepuff) have very sharp teeth and actually eat snakes (the symbol of Slytherin). So could it be that Hufflepuffs are even more dangerous because everyone has this kind and light-hearted perception of them but in reality noone knows what they are capable of and what to expect from them.

The houses when: they try to close Hogwarts
  • Gryffindor: Protest !! Protest protest protest protest. Best motivating speeches. Protest. Chain themselves to the Whomping Willow. Occupy the Great Hall. Send dozens of hundreds of Howlers to the board. Unleash the Blast-Ended Skrewts in the Quidditch pitch. And this is just the beginning.
  • Hufflepuff: Hide everyone in the Room of Requirement so they can’t close the school before finding them. Snacks, drinks provided by the kitchen elves. The younger students are being especially taken care of. Ravenclaws and some 6-7 years from other houses give a few lessons here and there. Group hugs on the regular – Yes Slytherin even you
  • Ravenclaw: Plan the global counter-attack – organize Students Representative elections, advise the Gryff leaders for safe protests, proof-read Slyth letters and speeches, write witty banners to hang from the top of the towers, negotiate with the Ghosts, Peeves, the Centaurs and even the Merpeople so they join them in the protest
  • Slytherin: Keep in touch with the teachers to be updated twice a day on how the situation goes and adjust their strategy accordingly. Contact and speak to the press on a regular basis. Try to get elected and then meet the board as Students Representatives to //threaten// make them change their mind. //Have you ever heard of the Basilik Sir//
