They can't really get any wetter, but there's still a world of difference between drenched and wet-wolfhound-drenched.

This is not likely to improve anyone's mood.

I know I won’t shut up about Gurgi’s design, but this is great.

I appear to have converted quite a few to my Gurgi interpretation. :) makes me happy.

The expressions! The Gestures! The lighting! It's all so vivid and really captures the scene well!!

Anything lit only by bauble light becomes automatically more dramatic. I haven’t been able to do it since chapter six or so.

You know they really are becoming acclimatized to weirdness on this trip; they were just sucked down a whirlpool and seem more irritated than anything else!

Well at least Fflewddur seems happy to be alive...so that's what knotted harp strings look like.

It’s what they look like here anyway.

The only reason I'm ignoring this page's delightful characterization in this comment is because I'm in awe of your illustration of the water here. I don't even care if you tell me this is just some paint effect because 1) I know a good deal of it isn't and 2) the execution, in any case, is (as the kids say) on fleek.

Or do they still say that. I can't keep up with this stuff anymore and I am old.

Same. I was still trying to figure out on fleek when they moved on to yeet.

Err, when are they going to notice the glowing symbols on the stones beneath their feet? They make me nervous just looking at them. :)

Also, what kind of mumbo jumbo is fleek and yeet?

Probably when the readers noticed them. ;)

You don’t speak babyMillenial, then? It’s ok, I mean, only half of them can read cursive.

Good catch on the symbols...maybe they only show up in magical light.

...Also, I conferred with my two experts on Millenial Speak (my daughters)....as Saeriellyn implied, "On Fleek" is ancient history (2016-17 era) and "Yeet!" is still in use but clearly on its way out...

The worst is drenched by a wet wolfhound. (Or a sheep, they seem to have more water in their fleece than what was used to wash them. We have wooly pets)

I did find myself wondering what wet wool smells like, given that they are all wearing wool cloaks.

I have to assume it smells at least a little better than it would while the sheep is still attached.

I remeber now we had this ikea sheep skin on the floor years ago, mainly for our cat, and when our kid was born we decided a washing of that skin could not hurt - after washing the smell was unbearable in our 50m2 house...

Oh mercy! They are indeed pungent, but I’ve only ever smelled them mingled and diluted with the fresh air of wild Welsh pastures. Imagine how it must have been back when people stabled their animals in their own cottages for warmth and slept in the loft above them.

Medieval times become so much less romantic when you account for the smells.

By the way - thanks for the review over at the fic page! I try to respond to them there, but that only works if you have an account on the site. Just wanted to acknowledge you as I know it takes time and effort to comment - I'm chuffed you read my work too. :)

"Medieval times become so much less romantic when you account for the smells"

Haha! True! Please don't include smells in the future audiobook...

You're welcome! Without comments it is a lonely buisness at the www. Don't worry if you can't respond, i just assume you read it at ff. I will be accountless for the moment, unless i actively will contribute at ff or here.
Your work has really some energy that is heartwarming. As a child CoP books were my private thing, i could not really share with others. Then it is so great to see so many years later there is a community that feels like a watm bath.. Some of the fics really enhance the CoP universum.

I know what you mean. The years before internet fandom were lonely ones, trying to evangelize the books to all my friends, who humored me but never reached my levels of obsession. It's so refreshing and comforting to immerse oneself in a community of like minds.

I wonder sometimes what Lloyd would think of my writing - besides that it's impossibly verbose and obviously meant for a more mature audience. I'm glad I don't have an editor chomping it up - I'm sure the first thing I'd be told is that I could tell the same story in half the words, haha.

What Lloyd wpuld have thought... Hmm maybe he would have sneaked himself in and start to make all kind of corrections on everybodies fic. And start some new to prove you wrong haha i have no clue.

Yes Lloyds style is very compact without sacrificing the essence of the story or details. It must have been my first 'page turner' so to say. I think everybody read the books quickly.

But just hold on to your own way, this fanfic gives you all the freedom in the world so that is also a nice thing. Looking foreward to the next page, whenever!
