You guys: The Mall of America is looking for a writer-in-residence.
According to their
website, they want “a special scribe” to “spend five days deeply immersed
in the Mall atmosphere while writing on-the-fly impressions in their own words.”
So I’m watching the Redwall animated series (caught a few bits and pieces of the show growing up, never read the books). I have to ask, though. Any of my lovelies who read the books, are there any rat characters that are protagonists?
That was something that bothered me when it came to “mouse” books, was there EVER a rat character in the Redwall series that wasn’t evil or a lackey?
@ this anon I’m on mobile and can’t just answer with a photo but it’s Roscuro from The Tale Of Despereaux! The original illustration has “Roscuro, however, stared directly into the light,” under it which is unnecessary information but warmed my whole heart
No book I’ve ever read is gonna beat City of the Rats.
Nothing will ever be better than a city that got so full of rats that the citizens just threw up their arms and said “Fuck it–we’re moving to a new city, calling it ‘No Rats’, and if I even so much as see something that looks like a rat I will kill whoever brought it near me”
