DF Spoilers / Re: What happened to Carlos Ramirez?

Personally, I think Carlos will play the part of the virgin for the eventual Dresden Holy Grail quest.

DF Spoilers / Dark Hallow Idea...
« on: January 06, 2021, 06:41:40 AM »
1) Harry Dresden knows how to preform a Dark Hallow
2) To summon up the spirits needed, there has to be a connection.
(The necromancers used a bunch of old relics)
3) People theories Harry will preform a Dark Hallow at some point.
4) There are a bunch of pictures of people who defended Chicago now hurried in a grave.

Thought: What if Harry uses those pictures, and the spirits they might summon up, to preform the Dark Hallow.

Just an idea...

Not sure Harry is quite pragmatic enough to do it yet, though.

Yes, Jim reused a set from earlier in the series.

NOTE: The following is a kind of minor spoiler. But, it is a spoiler. So, read at your own risk.

DF Spoilers / (BG Spoilers) LTW Conservation of Speed w/ Mass Shift
« on: December 25, 2020, 03:35:43 AM »
In BG, during the fight with the fire giants, LTW flies at one, changing from a hawk to an elephant mid-flight. According to Dresden, he maintains his flight speed while doing this. I'm not really a math and science guy, but my instinct is to say that something is off about that. The easy answer is "magic." But, I was wondering if I was just wrong, or if shenanigans would indeed need to be happening for that conservation of speed to occur?

A minor detail, I know. But, I'm curious.

It's a complex question.

Personality-wise... yeah, I'd hang out with Harry. He'd be a hoot at D&D night. Though, I suspect he'd start avoiding me after I began asking him to teach me magic. But, if we're talking walking nuke, starts a war, kills faery princesses, denies a fallen angel, genocides a nation, burgles Hades' vault, solos a friggin' TITAN Harry.... I'm going to Utah. None of that crap ever happens in Utah. That... or I'd insist on going on those adventures for the heck of it... and probably get myself killed off pretty quick. Not sure.

*Open scene near the end of Harry and Carlos' conversation in BG*

"It was Murphy, by the way."

"What?" Carlos turned back.

"You guys scanned my sex life. When I refused to answer... It was Karin."

Carlos looked ill, his eyes locked on me for a long, long second. Then he turned away. "I'm sorry, Harry." His voice cracked as he spoke. Then he was gone, vanishing under a veil that was nowhere near as good as Molly's.

Wasn't there a WoJ about the power level where Nemfection was impossible, with Mab being the first 'safe' tier?

I recall something like that, at least.

I hadn't heard that. But, even if it isn't true, I would have problems accepting the unicorn as a source of Mab's Nemfection for two key reasons. First, she is the one that sent Harry and Justine off with her horny sparkle horse of doom. So, she knows Justine was in contact with it. Secondly, she was in the room while Harry and Lara discussed saving Justine from possession by HWWBside. Knowing both these facts and how scary paranoid and competent Mab is... I think the chances of her NOT going over her pony with a fine-tooth comb of icy torture rehabilitation are slim to none, if not in the full-on negatives.

He needs a nice, big, round table for meetings with whatever new group he's going to throw together because... uhh... references, I guess.  ;D 8) ;) ::)

However they suspended that sentence.  Why?   

I suspect, like Changes, it isn't actually about Harry. He's a convenient tool for the adversary/Adversary to use against Eb. Remember, Eb was harping about them using someone close to Harry in Pease Talks. And, they did. But, now they're using someone close to Eb in order to put him in a tough spot. What Eb's side of things look like, or the larger ramifications of the entire situation are... I'm not sure. But, that's the impression I got.

DF Spoilers / Re: [BG spoilers] So, what know?

1) The great hall of Castle Dresden will have a round table for the new group Harry founds to have meetings around. Because, you know... it has to.

2) The group Harry founds will be a major reason behind the inevitable White Council civil war. They have ignored the minor talents and pure mortals in the know for too long. And, the effectiveness of the group and... doing whatever it does... will swing some opinions in the Council, even if Harry is currently persona kill on sight. Of course, there will also be those that see it as the next coming of Kemmler.

3) Harry will become a semi-public figure. As said above... the wizard and the porn star. The tabloids will go crazy. But, seriously, after the battle people are bound to sit up and take more notice of him, mortal and supernatural alike.

And speaking of tabloids, the Arcane just got a whole heck of a lot more credibility. I wonder if Harry can get them an interview with River?

4) The Knights of the Bean will likely make up an "elite core" of mortal troops in Harry's organization. Eventually. I don't see them all coming at once. But, if they don't return as a group in at least some capacity... I will be profoundly disappointed with Butcher. He set it up too well.

On two levels, Harry will be seen by the great and the good by attending these public functions with Lara (pornstar and wizard, the gossip columns will have a field day), as well as working with the powers that be but he is on another level going to work with the magical have nots of the Paranet and vanilla mortals, his Castle will be open to the public for functions, he will appear in media, and win their trust. Isolating himself from the White Council was a mistake he realises.

Agreed. We'll probably get another Larry Fowler set scene in the next couple of books. Honestly, I can't wait. Heck, maybe it'll be one of the public appearances he and Lara will make together(I doubt it, but a guy can dream...) ;D

Bob and paranoid Gary have access to this forum.

Ivy too, probably.

OMG; I am so stupid. I totally fell for it, thanks for telling me  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Your welcome. Sorry for derailing your thread.

As far as your original topic goes: I think we've reached a point where Harry is almost about to realize what the Black Staff is. But, not quite there. Given his lack of talent when it comes to asking the "big" questions, he might even need to be told... again :( .

Everything the light touches is sweet and nothing relevant happens. I couldn't find a reference to BT in the JB site.

Bath Time doesn't exist. It was a joke. (thus the comment about stories not existing with a winky face)


DF Spoilers / Re: [BG spoilers!!] Minor thing about the Blackstaff
« on: October 06, 2020, 06:40:21 AM » was a comic-strip right? Thank you. I've read it and...forgot all about it.

Yeah, that tends to happen. I wish Jim would stop messing with the timeline. I tell you, remembering which stories exist in the here and now(and more importantly which don't ;)) gets exhausting when the list changes every couple days.

(Yeah, Everything the Light Touches was fun.)
