The Thief Anniversary Read-Along Chapters 10-12

Sep. 24th, 2016 | 03:45 pm
posted by: pendrecarc in sounis

And we've reached the end! Thank you so much to ninedaysaqueen for coordinating.

This week's discussion covers chapters 10 through the end, from "When I woke, the sun was up and the day was already warm." to " 'Thank you, thief.' 'You're welcome, my queen.' "

That is, I believe, the first time we hear anyone addressed directly as "My queen." It certainly isn't the last. :)

There's so much to cover here! Gen stealing the Gift a second time; more interference from the gods; Ambiades' and Pol's deaths; an introduction to the queens of Attolia and Eddis; and of course the revelations of Ambiades' treachery and Eugenides' true identity and motives.

I'm going to try something a little different with this post. I'll start a few threads in the comments, each with its own topic, which will hopefully seed the discussion in different directions! Feel free to respond to each of those if the topic interests you, or reply to this post and start your own.

The Thief Anniversary Read-Along Chapters 7-9

For the third week of The Thief read-along, we’re covering chapters 7 to 9, from “Good feelings persisted between myself and the Magus until the next morning...” to “Darkness that was deeper than the river swallowed me up.”

They’re some pretty exciting chapters, as we finally get to see Gen ‘in action’ professionally, as it were, rather than just active in driving the Magus nuts, baiting the Uselesses and generally pursuing his own agenda :)Chapters 7-9 discussionCollapse )

The Thief Anniversary Read-along - Chapters 4-6

posted by: silverflight8 in sounis

Welcome to the second part of the anniversary read-along of The Thief! This week's read-along is chapters 4-6. It starts with the sentence "WE STOPPED AGAIN EARLY IN the evening." and ends with "Did he sound genuinely flattered?" I'm not going to give page numbers because I have an ebook version, but my discussion's mostly chronological and I'll give quotes.

Like all the readalongs - SPOILERS! I'll also talk a little bit about the other books, so be wary if you haven't read them yet.

Chapters 4-6 discussionCollapse )

Stay tuned for the next instalment next week, hosted by an_english_girl, for chapters 7-9!

Read-Along to Continue Tomorrow

Sep. 9th, 2016 | 02:13 am

Hello, Sounis!

The anniversary read-along of "The Thief" continues this coming week with chapters 4-6. Discussions will open tomorrow, the 10th of September, and will be lead by silverflight8. The fanmade read-aloud chapters available for this section are 5 and 6. You must be a member of the community to listen to the read-aloud.

Don't forget to sign-up to play your favorite "The Thief" character for the anniversary masked role-playing chat, scheduled for October 1st. Sounisians are always super talented at playing these characters. If you've never participated in a Conspiracy Room chat before, you'll have tons of fun, so I hope you join in!

I'm sure you have at least one prompt and fill in you to participate in the comment fic party. Remember, there are no rules in regards to the word count on fills, so they can be as short as a single sentence or as long as you wish (or can fit into a few comment boxes).

I had a lot of fun during week one. I hope everyone else did and continues to participate. If you didn't paticipate in week one, it's not too late to start! Happy Thief Month!

Who Stole my Line? - Comment Fic Party

Sep. 1st, 2016 | 05:04 pm
posted by: ninedaysaqueen in sounis

Feeling creative? Welcome to the comment fic party for the 20th anniversary celebration of "The Thief."

                                                   

Rules
1: We're keeping things simple with one word prompts and short fills with no minium word count. Your prompt can be longer than one word, but please try to keep things simple, so a short fill is possible. A quote or a poem is also another good prompt method. Some examples-

Orange Trees, Gen/Irene

Hallways, Magus

Library, Sophos/Helen

As a writer, you are free to interpret these prompts anyway you wish.

HERE are five fills I did for another QT comment fic party for an example.

2: No adult content on the main thread. Please, link to your journal or another site with appropriate warnings.

3: If you post a prompt, try to fill at least one other person's prompt. All prompts may not get filled. That's okay! Fill whichever prompts you're inspired to. More than one fill for the same prompt is fine.

4. Have fun!
