(part 1) Okay speculation time: where did Gabe and Tommy get the chicken from? It's not like Gabe has any more money than Puck and Finn (unless he's keeping it from them, which is something I'm not willing to think about).
(part 2) and we don’t exactly know what Tommy’s financial situation is, but I imagine it wasn’t much better than anyone elses on the island. So was it Peg? Another mystery donor? (Tbh I can’t think of anyone but Peg now) (……..I’m gonna fic it)
(So sorry for just getting to this now! I was away and on mobile, but do you think the app let me know I had any messages??? NOOOOOO.)
More so than just about any book I can think of, one gets the sense that the characters of The Scorpio Races have rich lives off the page. And I love that. What I love about YOU is that you notice those missing moments and see a story––a story that I didn’t know I desperately wanted until then. I love the idea that the chicken donor was Peg! Not only does it makes sense from a financial stance, the implications are fraught with meaning.
FIC IT!! FIC IT!!
