YES!

This is awesome. Seriously.

I’ve known about the fanfic community for years now, though I’ve never myself gone swimming in those dark waters.

In fact, not too long ago someone apparently had a dream where I was acting as a councilor for fanfic-traumatized characters. They wrote about their dream over HERE on Deviantart….

While that is cool, it’s not what I’m excited about.

I’ve known for a while that it was only a matter of time since someone did fanfic based on The Name of the Wind. I’ve also known that it was only a matter of time before someone did some Yaoi  fanfic.

As soon as this idea got into my head, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Every couple weeks it would pop back into my head and I’d do a quick google search to see if anything was out there yet. I’d keyword search “Kvothe Bast” “Kvothe Yaoi” “‘Name of the Wind'” yaoi.” But there was never anything…

It’s been months since I went looking. But tonight I was doing an e-mail interview and made a joke about it. Then I googled: “Bast Kvothe kissing.”

Bingo.

I have truly arrived on the scene as a fantasy author.

Happily yours,

pat

What Should I do #5: Cloverfield.

I was hoping to make an announcement about something cool tonight, but I got caught up working on a project and I don’t have the energy to do it justice right now. Tomorrow for sure…

However, It’s been a little while since I’ve answered the perennial question, “What should I do until your next book comes out?” Luckily, a friend dragged me to see Cloverfield on Saturday, and a good time was had by all.

Am I saying you should rush out and see it? No. But I will say the following…

1. I very much enjoyed it.

2. I suspect that people will either love the movie, or hate it. I don’t think many folks will be in the middle.

3. I expect that people who like my book will have a greater chance of liking Cloverfield than the general population.

Why?

Hmmm… That’s hard to say….

You remember those SAT questions they used to give? Like this?

Apple is to Pie, as Nathan Fillian is to _____

A) More different pie.
B) Duck.
C) Firefly.
D) All of the Above.

I don’t do reviews because I detest spoilers. (Speaking of which, feel free to give your own opinions of the movie in the comments below, but I’m declaring it a strict spoiler free zone. Prosecutors will be violated.)

But while I don’t review, I can give you an impression of the movie using this SAT format.

The Wheel of Time is to the Name of the Wind, as King Kong is to Cloverfield.

Not entirely accurate, but I think it gives a general feel for the flavor of the movie.

Maybe it’s the sleep deprivation talking, but these word puzzles are kinda fun. Now I can see why they constantly gave us those tests. Here’s one you can finish on your own.

Kvothe is to Harry Potter, as _____ is to _____.

Oh yeah. This seems like a really funny idea right now, but I know as soon as I open my eyes tomorrow I’m going to cringe in anticipation of what’ll be waiting for me in the comments…

Night all,

Kvothe vs. Harry Potter – Cage Match!

Those of you who tune into the blog regularly already know that a few weeks ago Orson Scott Card reviewed my book on his website. He said some very flattering things, and, generally I was a blushy with delight.

Yesterday, or maybe the day before, someone on FACEBOOK brought the following piece of comic fanart to my attention.

I don’t know what to say about it really. Except that I’m flattered, and I think it’s funny as hell. And, personally, it looks like Kvothe might be getting ready to kick every inch of Harry’s ass if he doesn’t move out of the way a little quicker.

Now that I’m thinking about it, I wonder how Kvothe and Harry would get along if they ever met. Wow. That’s a weird though. Worlds collide. Just thinking about it makes me feel like I swallowed an ice cube with my brain.

Later all,

pat
