I need a shoulder/neck massage more than I have ever needed anything in my life. Ow. Alternatively, to work out where in hell my tennis balls are, because how can I work knots out of my own shoulders without tennis balls to lie on? Grr, argh.

Reading Dragon Keeper is really weird. Hobb's improved again, for one thing. Greft is like a cleverer, more controlled version of my stepfather. Rapskal is ADORABLE DKFJHDS but you all knew I was going to say that. All of the characters are really fascinating and brilliantly assembled, and they are all unlikeable in some way. As in, Rapskal is probably the only person I would even try to associate with IRL. Everyone is selfish in different ways, and it's... it's really good. I just feel like this has all been a lead-up book.

Also, [personal profile] alleyne, Sessurea is totally the big placid blue dragon whose name I cannot remember because it's come up all of once, but also started with an 's'.

Loads to do today, but I'm going to wallow in the sadness of my spine a little longer before I actually start. By which I mean 'limber the fuck up for a day of sitting'.

I have spent the entire afternoon, having finished HBP, wanting nothing but to fling myself into either Sherlock Holmes or Felix Harrowgate, and settling on the middle ground of Jeremy Brett's nose. Yes, I am quite mad. And how are you this day?

I want to draw Felix but the computer is over there, and sketches seem pointless when I'm painting (sad but true).

Perhaps I'll just start from the beginning of The Adventures and go from there.

Yes, even though I've not read the new Hobb book yet. Sigh.

[EDIT] Um. And that random letter string in the subject was meant to be "with". :|

BAWLING.

Was it a cop out ending?
I really thought it was, until I relised the following after my 5th read... and then my heart was in my throat...

The Fool's Last Riddle

(page 736, UK & Australian edition)

And then I asked the final, awful question. 'After I leave you here, will I ever see you again?'

'Probably not. It would not be wise.'

I smiled back at him and impulsively touched a finger to his brow. I heard his voice then, almost as if he were in the room. 'I have never been wise.'






THAT WAS JUST POSTED IN THE HOBB COMM ON LJ.

I NEVER NOTICED/REALISED THAT.

I AM RETARDED. ALSO I JUST BURST INTO TEARS.

PRETTY SURE FOOL WINS THE FAVOURITE CHARACTER AWARD, THEN, EH.
