Thief!Con 2018

Aug. 15th, 2018 | 05:32 pm
posted by: dannybailey in sounis

Just dropping in to extend an invitation to everyone to join us for Thief!Con coming up in September 2018. This is NOT technically a convention, more like a very informal meetup for fans of the Queen's Thief series. It will be held at the library in Cleveland, Ohio and will feature a meet-and-greet with our super special guest of honor: Megan Whalen Turner! Yay!

The event is primarily being organized on tumblr, but you don't have to use tumblr at all to get the details. I'll put everything in this post. If you do want to check out the official announcement, you can view it: HERE.

The details are as follows:

Date: Saturday, September 8th, 2018
Time: ~11:00 a.m. - ~5:00 p.m.
Location: The Cleveland Public Library, Louis Stokes Wing [exact conference with RSVP], 525 Superior Ave. Cleveland, OH 44114
To RSVP: send an email to queensandkingsofattolia@gmail.com . In your email, please also include your t-shirt size. The wonderful tumblr user queensandkingsofattolia, in addition to organizing the event, is giving a t-shirt to everyone who attends. <3

I think that's everything! I hope I can see some of you there! (Can you believe I have been hanging around this fandom since 2006 and this is my first "real life" meetup? I'm very exited!)

King of Attolia ah-ha moment

I have been working my way through the Queen's Thief books via audio book and am currently listening to KoA. I had gotten to the point where Irene asked Eugenides if he was telling the truth about the sand in his food and the snake in his bed and asks why he hadn't said anything, he said "I don't want the kitchens purged, or the guards." And then the light bulb came on. Of course he doesn't want the kitchens purged, he had made friends with many of the people there when he pretended to be a servant there but we don't find that out until Thick as Thieves!

Hamiathes' Gift Exchange - Treats, Betas, and Pinch Hits

Jul. 20th, 2018 | 07:41 pm
posted by: pendrecarc in sounis

Hello, everyone! We're about two weeks in and four weeks from the deadline. Your assignments are due on Saturday, August 18th, at 10 PM EDT.

A few notes:

Whether or not you're signed up for the exchange, you're welcome to post gifts, or extra treats! I've compiled the list of requests in this spreadsheet for easy filtering and searching. To send someone a treat, post it on AO3 to the Hamiathes' Gift Exchange 2018 collection--you can use the "Post to Collection" button on the top right--and enter their AO3 name precisely as it appears on the spreadsheet in the "Gift this work to" field.

If you're interested in reviewing fanworks and providing feedback, or if you're looking for someone to review your assignment, check out the Beta Post! To be sure all the beta offers are in one place, I'm only making this post on Dreamwidth, but you don't need a Dreamwidth account to comment.

Pinch hits will also go up at Dreamwidth as soon as anyone defaults on their assignment, and I'll post announcements to Livejournal and Tumblr. If you do need to default, please do so as early as possible so there's plenty of time to find someone to cover the the assignment.

Have fun, all!

Any new book recommendations?

Jul. 16th, 2018 | 12:13 pm

While she knits....what have you been reading lately that are good for Thief fans?

I recently discovered the "And I Darken" trilogy by Kiersten White (book 3 was just released). In some ways it reminds me a bit of the QT series: takes place in a historical world similar to our own, but changed in some way, making it "fantasy" even though there's no magic. Small countries jostling for borders, lots of political machinations, moving armies around, sabotaging your own resources in order to befuddle the enemy....and the main character is a ruthless woman who takes extreme measures to obtain and maintain her throne (albeit, even more ruthless than Irene). And unlike a lot of YA fantasy these days, romance is no where near the forefront of the story.

What other recommendations have ye got?
