A few random thoughts about a chapter
« on: December 02, 2015, 01:16:26 AM »
The chapter where Grimm meets the aetherealists. I've been rereading and I thought a few things
Folly says "He's not mad. Except that he is. And I should know" Could she be referring to the name that Bayard uses for Grimm, "Mad" (for Madison).

Do you really have peppermint candy red and white? Ours are green or green and white, which makes me think again how surprising is that even minor cultural details remain from our world to the Spire World.

Finally, Ferus mentions Grimm knows "one of" Folly's names. Do you think we will know more of her names?

Typically in the US, peppermints are red and white.  You can sometimes find green and white ones, though.

I totally see Grimm becoming an etherialists, his ship acting as his personal crystal and it filling the gaps that open in him.

Could they see some of his future? That his link to his ship has awakened potential to become something more.
