hi M! could you tell us a bit more about Meredith? For instance, how did she cope with being left alone so often by her brothers and her parents? What did she do to take her mind off of things? What's her favorite book? Favorite Shakespeare work? thanks!!

Hi! I think I’ve actually already answered some of these questions. You might try Meredith’s tag and particularly this post here. (Mild spoilers.) Like most avid readers she went through phases and it would be difficult to say what her favorite book or even Shakespeare play is–she had different ones at different times in her life. For a long time she loved As You Like It, but as she got a little older Antony and Cleopatra became her favorite, or at least the one she thought the most about. Her pet genre besides Shakespeare is second-wave feminist poetry (something she and Filippa have bonded over).

Here’s another character for @dj-bayeux-tapestry‘s Lunatic Nautilus, Lil Nauty! Almost a Bill Cypher-ish figure, nobody quite knows where he comes from, but he’s seemingly far more powerful than he looks; advising the traitor-pirate Cleaver as Cleaver seems to steadily grow more and more unhinged.

Funny, he looks very familiar. I wonder where we’ve seen him before…

“Shh, it’s alright,” the villain said. “You’re doing beautifully and I’m so proud of you. But that’s enough now. It was cruel of them to make you fight me - you could never have won. It’s not your fault.”
