Amelia's Last Farewell


Anyone need a hug?

As the Angels take Manhattan, we say goodbye to poor old Rory and poor beautiful Amy. Yes, I am talking about Doctor Who again.

Yesterday I was in Northern Ireland- in Bangor for an event and in Belfast for a signing. Because of the Unionist parade, no one was quite sure how many people would actually turn up. As our car was being diverted further and further away from the shop, a thought struck me:

If no one turns up to this signing, I get to go home early and watch Doctor Who as it airs. Ooooh...

But then we got the call- there were already 150 people queuing up. Looks like my faithful Sky box will be on recording duties again.

So we leaped out of the car and sprinted through the crowded streets, barging past cops and marchers, knocking over little old ladies, and bursting through the parade lines. 30,000 marchers. Countless onlookers. Flags waving. I have to admit, I was a little humbled that they went to all this trouble just to welcome me to Belfast.


The signing was great fun. Lots of enthusiastic readers, some too excited to form coherent sentences, some actually apologising for bringing so many books to sign, some laughing at a pitch so high it does not register to human ears... And I was given things! Two glow-in-the-dark skulls! A bling skeleton necklace! A sparkly cardboard skeleton! Sweets! A tiara!

Er... anyway...

And I was given artwork, and letters, and notes, and as usual my bag began to bulge before the signing was halfway over. Just as I was finishing up, the lights in the shop dimmed, which is usually a sign that they're about to kick you out. But of course two girls, two of my regulars, Olivia and Rowan, had to come around for a SECOND time. See, here's what the lunatics do. They queue up. They stand. They wait. They're usually near the front of the queue. Then they get stuff signed, and we have a chat, and they take pictures, and they chat some more, and they don't stop chatting, and my publicist has to come over and try to gently move them on, and then she does it a little more forcefully, and they finally say goodbye and skip off, babbling amongst themselves.

And then?

Then they queue up again. They time it perfectly, so that they're always the last in line, and so they get a few more minutes of chatting as I pack up to leave. Ohhhh they're sneaky. And I'm not even going to TELL you what Rowan did when we were hugging. She is a bad, bad girl.

Then I was back on the road again, heading home. When I got back I had something to eat, laughed at my dogs, and settled down on my sofa. And I pressed play. And Doctor Who began.


We knew this was Amy and Rory's last episode. We all knew this going in. The fact was, we'd known it for months. I'm not sure how smart this is, to be honest. On one hand, I can see what the BBC are doing- they're making sure everyone tunes in. On the other hand, where's the surprise? Where's the shock?

If I'm going to get rid of a character, do I tell you before the book is even out? No. No I do not. I try my best to keep you from guessing for as long as I can... and then I snatch the character away from you as quickly and as viciously as possible.

So, all those Whovians out there, ask yourselves this: would the episode have been better, have been more shocking and more emotional, if that ending had taken you completely be surprise?

But hey... what an ending. Sad. Tragic. Romantic. Beautiful. I suppose there's something to be said for watching the thing and knowing that Amy and Rory will inevitably meet their end- it adds another layer to the experience. And just when you think it's all over and the day is saved, there is one surviving Angel...

Matt Smith was fantastic in this. When he's begging Amy not to go... heartbreaking. Rory, as a character, has grown on me so much. At the start, I viewed him as a third wheel, someone who was coming between Amy and the Doctor (a beautiful young lady and a charismatic genius centuries old... come on, how could you NOT ship that?). But thanks to great writing and the wonderful Arthur Darvill, Rory became an essential part of the show's dynamic. And Karen Gillan herself... She's been my favourite of the new companions so far, and I'll miss her pout, and her feistiness, and those skirts...

Hug? Anyone?

Omg, I'm going to miss Amy, so bad. I love Amy. Actually, I'm watching the episode right now (again). And River was amazing. And my sister had a box of tissues next to her...

Ieni Lorartè said...

And NJ couldn't go because of the annoying parade thing :(
I saw the tiara on Tumblr. I laughed so much XD

And I'll have that hug :)

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I need to think of something else to blog about, now...

DEREK IF YOU READ THIS PLEASE TELL KALLISTA OENDRAGON THAT SHE'S AWESOME. IT'D MEAN SO MUCH TO ME FOR HER TO HAVE SOME SELF-CONFIDENCE.

Death Rose said...

Derek, I want a hug! And I need to ask you for permission!

Death Rose said...

It is an art project and I am drawing Skulduggery and have the quote "Release your in er lunatic, fun times guarenteed" and a pic of Skul's eyes!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Derek probably gets fed up of me, haha. He'd hate me if I ever met him. I'm so irritating!

Oh well~!

OPPA GANGNAM STYLE.

Ieni Lorartè said...

Oh, yeah, I think I should do some kinda celebration thing for being first. Because I've failed to do that..
Maybe I'll take a break from my English homework as a special thingy..
Omg, Derek. I've never met you, but someone I know has. And she said you remembered her the 2nd time you met her from the first time..

Eden Threatening said...

Derek please.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

HEYYYYYY, SEXY LADIES

OH, OH, OH, OPPA GANGNAM STYLE.

Death Rose said...

Derek, do you remember the young girl at the Melbourne signing that had the kickass baby blue leather and black lace biker gloves?

Death Rose said...

Please Derek?! Will be your friends?

Eden Threatening said...

Derek do you remember me from Kilkenny.
You said that it was great to meet someone from the blog.

Eden Threatening said...

DEREK!!!!!
Please come on.

Death Rose said...

I was only on the blog twice before I met you so I didn't say anything. I was dead in your presence of awesomeness. I couldn't speak. You asked me how I was twice and all I could say was yeah, fine!

Willow Storm said...

Hello!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Derek might be busy. If he comes online I'll probably scream. A lot. If he doesn't, then...I'll be disappointed. But he's probably tired. ^^

Death Rose said...

Derek! PLEASE! I will storm your house!

Eden Threatening said...

Hey Willow.

Death Rose said...

Hey Willow!

Eden, this war isn't over...

I have to go to sleep, good morning everyone!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Willow! How are you, my beautiful little sister? I'm not sure if anyone has told you this today but, I'm so glad you're alive. *hugs*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Night, Death! Sleep well!

Death Rose said...

Thanks Lucy, I will!

Eden Threatening said...

G'night Death.
See ya tomorrow.

Willow Storm said...

Bye, Death

Death Rose said...

See ya Eden, and something to keep you waiting...
*Kisses Eden lightly on the lips*
I'll be back!

Death Rose said...

Bye Willow!

kaladevi said...

DEREK YOU UNDERSTAND ME I WAS ACTUALLY SOBBING SO BADLY.
I just can't handle all these feels :(

Eden Threatening said...

*blushes*

Willow Storm said...

I could be better, my cat is missing on top of all the other shizz in my life. I am also very ashamed of myself, today was the first day I went into a bookshop and didn't buy, anything.

Kribu said...

I think I saw some pictures with that tiara...

Also... (a beautiful young lady and a charismatic genius centuries old... come on, how could you NOT ship that?)

...*giggles*

My thoughts exactly.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

:(

Well, we all have our problems. And those issues that we overcome prove our strength. They prove that we're stronger than we think. There isn't enough time in this world to spend it being down - so waste your time wisely. If there's ever anything wrong, no matter how little, I'll be here for you. I want to help you. I want you to smile and to be happy. Happiness is the key to success. (:

Eve the ROCK said...

Kribu....WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?

Lynxia Lost said...

I need a hug, Mr. Almighty Golden Goddyness, sir!!!

It was so sad to see Rory and Amy to go. I almost screamed when the statue of liberty showed up. My eyes were like this O_O !!!!!

I sniffled and nearly cried at the end!!

It still remains though, that I want a Cube!!!!!

Georgina Howlett said...

Derek you are just too perfect okay

But be warned

Your troubles are not yet over. There are two more years.

Incidentally? You know that Cheltenham festival you're going to in October? What is it? Is it a signing? A talk? :\

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I'M ALLOWED TO HAVE A MASQUERADE/REQUIEM BALL FOR MY 18TH! *screams*

Two years...Two years. I can't wait. XD

Dragoon_theGreat said...

Derek! Do you watch Merlin, the new series is on in 6 days! If you haven't watched Merlin, you have 6 days to watch about 50 episodes.

that is all.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

MERLIN IS AMAZING. ASDFGHJKL.

I'M WATCHING VALIANT AGAIN, NOW. IT'S IN CBBC. C:

EHEHEHE.

je m'appelle Angel, je suis LOSER. <3

Kribu said...

Eve - I am not saying anything at all. Honest. Just quoting the above post... :P

Willow Storm said...

Sorry, I'm having a hard time convincing my best friend that she's not worthless.

S.C. said...

That was probably my favourite episode ever :D I cried so hard... like bawling like crazy... I'll miss Amy, she was the best companion (closely followed by Rose) and I'll miss her way more than I should :'(

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

*hugs Willow* You're amazing enough, I'm sure you'll convince her of her true worth. :3

Ieni Lorartè said...

Merlin is amazing.
But old Merlin (Dragoon the Great) is the best.
He's so funny!

Georgina Howlett said...

Merlin is awesome

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I hate it when there's a new blogpost.

I can never decide who's staying and who's just commenting once...

Miss Cain said...

Aren't I glad I didn't go to bed? Cuz now I can stay on here for a bit while I search up some anime episodes to watch

Hi all!!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Cain! *hugs* How are you?

Miss Cain said...

*hugs*
I'm good, L!
Glad it's holidays!!

Willow Storm said...

I'm getting to the point where I don't care about my school work. I'm starting to turn out like my family. They'll be happy about that.

I'm sorry, it's just been a really bad day, for me.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I'm jealous! I wish it was my holidays! I have to go to school again, tomorrow. :(

Though, there's a high chance I'll have to stay off, again. :P

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Willow, sweetheart, how can I help? I don't like you being down. :( *hugs tightly* Can i help, at all?

Star Inkbright (Ink!) said...

*glares* SO NOT FAIR. I couldn't watch DW last night because I was at the cinema. We're gonna watch it on iPlayer after dinner, but until then, I can't read the post and I can't be here. SO. ANNOYZIGGING.

So, fours for now!

Miss Cain said...

It was my friends birthday party today and we and a couple of other kids went Geocaching!! It's so much fun!!

Miss Cain said...

Hi/bye Star!

Thalia Jane said...

*lies down and sobs about Doctor Who*

The episode would definitely have been more shocking if we didn't know the Ponds were leaving. But that didn't stop me from bawling my eyes out the whole time.

Miss Cain said...

I haven't seen the episode yet, it comes out next Saturday for us Aussies

But then, there is always iview

Miss Cain said...

*yawns*
I'm tired, talk to you guys tomorrow

Bye!!

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

I was in tears. Tears I tell you.

Sad tears and then happy-chokey laughing tears and then more sad tears.

I am emotionally drained.

I think that Donna is still my favourite companion though but Amy/Rory come in a close second.

Lord Vlaedr said...

:( I have never even watched Doctor Who.

Still hoping you come to South Africa, Mr. Landy!!!!!!

Thalia Jane said...

Same, Octa. Tomorrow I'll probably walk around school staring blankly at all the laughing people and wondering how they can be so happy when no more Ponds.

Also hi Octa!!! *hugs*

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

Hi Thalia! *hugs back*

I am now listening to Doctor Who music being played on a piano and am in more tears.

Also AU Thalia bio will be appearing when?

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Not watched Doctor Who in so longgggggggggggg. D:

I'll start watching it again soon. Maybe.

Rivia will probably force me to but, whatever. I got her reading Skulduggery! ^^

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

Hey Luce :)

Thalia Jane said...

I fell asleep listening to Doctor Who music and crying into my cat.

My cat was not amused.

AU Thalia bio should be appearing in the next week or so! Hopefully sooner, if I can stop being lazy for once.

Thalia Jane said...

Hiya Luc! *hugs*

Willow Storm said...

I hopefully shall be here more often. Not to long before I'll get detention, I've already had a lunchtime one, for storming out of the English class.

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

And has Mar written one?

Only I'm all inspired up to write something set there but I need characters :)

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Heya, Octa! :)

How're you?


ALSO, read my blog?

http://theinsignificanceofthisblogisunreal.blogspot.co.uk/

C:

Valkyrie V. Cain said...

Yes, Derek, I need a hug after watching that...


That episode was SO FREAKING SAD. *SPOILERS*
When River's wrist is broken and the Doctor freaks out I felt so bad for River. She had to do it. And then he used a regeneration on her. But then, when Amy and Rory were jumping, and the Doctor was sobbing, and River was stunned, I had to try so hard NOT to cry. And then the end. The ending was SO SAD.

Derek, please don't end the series like that.

Thalia Jane said...

Octa - I think Mar is starting on hers. Not sure how far she's gotten. I'll ask her if I see her on gmail later.

YAAAAY MORE OCTA WRITING!!!!!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Heya, Thal! *hugs*

How're you?

Thalia Jane said...

Hey Val! *hugs*

Willow Storm said...

How is everyone??

Thalia Jane said...

I'm doing alright, Luc. Yourself?

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

I am good but phenomenally busy.

I have a little time now though as I'm on half term.

See I'm taking English AS and A2 in one year and it's brilliant but so much to do.

Also I've no idea why I dropped English last year. IT WAS A STUPID THING TO DO :P

Of course I'll read it.

I also redesigned Gorgons.

Instead of having snakes for hair they have butterflies on long wavy green stems.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I'm sure I'll live. (:

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

Hey Val and Willow

*hugs*

Thalia Jane said...

Hey Octa, do you have a tumblr?

Willow Storm said...

I'm going on e thoughts room, now. I'll comment occasionally or regularly, depending.

Thalia Jane said...

Also please tell me that someone here has read American Gods by Neil Gaiman.

Please.

It's so good.

Thalia Jane said...

*hugs Willow tight*

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

Yes but I sort of abandoned it

purplepoetry.tumblr.com

I think

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

*hugs Willow*

@ Thalia yes I have :D But years ago.

Thalia Jane said...

Eh, I'll follow you anyway. I like following people on tumblr.


ALSO YES YES YES YES I JUST FINISHED IT THIS MORNING IT'S SO GOOOOODDDDD

Willow Storm said...

Octa, hope you don't mind, but I'm following your tumblr.

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

Course I don't mind :)

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

...

Tumblr is making me want to cry.

...

Derek is a bully.

GAH. D:

Willow Storm said...

I must be the only one on facebook who doesn't give to honks about the Galway v Kilkenny match.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Has anyone talked to Kal, today?

I spoke to her at 2am this morning, but I haven't heard from her since. D':

Willow Storm said...

Nope, sorry, Lucy,

Thalia Jane said...

I haven't spoken to her since last night :(

Willow Storm said...

I'll be gone for 90 seconds.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Well, whenever you talk to her make sure she knows how wonderful and brilliant she truly is. Ok?

Thalia Jane said...

I will, Luc.

Georgina Howlett said...

Tumblr is something I regret getting

Willow Storm said...

GEORGINA, HOW???


Back, btw.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Tumblr is perfect.

And I am curretly reblogging anything and everything. xD

I am just hoping some BIG BANG will come up on my dash...!

Thalia Jane said...

I reblog so much stuff on tumblr.

Most of it is Homestuck.

I am so sorry xD

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

May suddenly disappear...

Chest pains, again. :/ But they're getting worse. Which means I'm probably going to have another attack sometime soon. Eurgh. So annoying.

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

I'm a little worried about Kal it must be said.

Hope she's OK.

Love you Kallie! YOU ARE AMAZING AND DON'T LET ANYONE TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENT.

Thalia Jane said...

*hugs Luc gently* :(

Willow Storm said...

*hugs Luce*

Willow Storm said...

I try tell Kal one nice thing a day.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

*hugs everyone* I'll be fine. Don't worry about me. I'll learn to cope with the attacks and it'll all be okay.

You guys worry about Kal and make sure my gorgeous sister is okay, alright?

Crystal Darkflair said...

awww *hugs*

Thalia Jane said...

I have to go

*hugs everyone*

Love you all. Bye!

Willow Storm said...

Bye, Thal!
*hugs*
Nice talking to you again.

Octaboona Ambrosius. They call me The Fez Wearer. said...

Bye Thalia!

*hugs*

I have to go too.

Byeeee!

Willow Storm said...

Hi, Crystal!
I don't believe we've met, but I was told that you are very nice.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Bye, Thal! Bye, Octa! *hugs both* Ttyl!

Willow Storm said...

Bye, Octa!
*hugs*
Hopefully we can talk again, sometime

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

So, who is still here?

Willow Storm said...

Me!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Yay! Willow! *hugs*

Willow Storm said...

Lois Lane said...

Gaaah! I'm so excited to see this episode! (Actually, I'll do that right now, bye.)

Georgina Howlett said...

I regret Tumblr because it is stealing my life

Derek come on this blog right now and answer my question

Bethany said...

i don't think i've ever seen the doctor so upset before. it was when amy said 'goodbye, raggedy man', that's when i kind of lost it. ugh. they'll be missed so much. so so much.

i'll most definitely accept a hug.

again, thank you for coming to belfast :3 made my day. and that day was already exceptional having seen jon snow and ygritte dandering about.

Zafira Kerias said...

I need a hug. I definetly need a hug. My faithful tissues...well the bix was empty by the end

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Heya, Zaf!

Does anyone know which Minions with the funny accents are from Sydney? Weird question, I know, I'm just wondering because of something I overheard my parents talking about~.

Fibbles! said...

THAT WAS SOOOOOO SAD!!!!! ILL HAVE A HUG!
;)

Making the Legend said...

You're killing me Derek. I cried last night. Yes, things would have been a lot more emotional if it stayed a secret, but ... URG!!!! MOFFAT!!!! He pulled a Blink on us and I didn't appreciate it. Oh Lord... I'm just... going through withdrawl. Doctor Who Withdrawl. Amy! And Rory! And Doctor! And River! MERRRRRRR!!!!! We won't see them again... weep, weep, weep...

- Molly, crying again.

PS, you should look at this website for all the GIFs to explain your feels:

BelladonnaCurse said...

Oh god yes I need a hug *sobs uncontrolably*

Zafira Kerias said...

DEREK!!

You know its sad. I dont know how ironic this is or not but today i was in class for church and my teacher was telling us about how she works in the jail. Then, I just pick up KOTW and i think you know what i opened to. Its funny how i just laughed,

But for Doctor Who, my parents laughed as i sobbed. I SOBBED its a sign. Its gonna be 20 times worse by Book 9's end

roxodee said...

You've probably been asked this countless times already, but might you get a twitter account? It'd be a great way to interact with your minions who can't make it to the signing! Also I felt totally the same way about Rory and Matt Smith's performance! At the beginning of the series I wanted Amy and the Doctor to get together so badly and there seemed to be no-one who agreed with me! And regarding Matt's performance, when he screamed "NO!!" at the graveyard is what got me teary eyed... And I didn't even realise until after that he'd said "Come along Pond! Please!" Which still makes me emotional when I think about it... You've probably been asked this countless times already, but might you get a twitter account? It'd be a great way to interact with your minions who can't make it to the signing!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

YES, DEREK.

GET A TWITTER.

We will make a Twittion if it means you'll get Twitter!

The last answer you gave me was no with lots of letters. As bad as me, I swear. Anyway.

DEREK.
GET.
TWTTER.

Please? :'3

I'll buy you a rainbow cupcake!

Kallista Pendragon- The Beautiful Goddess Queen(and Thief in Black) said...

Epic post as usualy Derek. :)
Once again you made me laugh. (thank you for that)
I have not been able to watch any of the latest Doctor Who episodes. I am not sure now that I will be brave enough.
THe DW writers and the actors that palyed them created sucj brillant roles with the Ponds and Riversong. I loves the strong friendships between them. I am dismayed that it is now cut short. I would have prefered a better ending where the Ponds, Riversong, and the Doctor parted ways, but it was not a forever parting. It would have made the show more bearable. I don't know if I want to watch it anymore now that the Ponds no longer even exist in that world.

I amnot ure I really want to talk with anyone right now. Doctor Who was one of the places I went to to see what love and friendship are like since I cannot get it where I live.
I will be back when I feel more stable. I cause too much trouble here and elsewhere when I am sad.

Georgina Howlett said...

Oh my god Derek I demand that you get Twitter okay

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

*hugs Kallie* You're perfect, ok?

GERO HE WON'T LISTEN TO ME. when he answered by 9 questions he refused to get Twitter. D:

Zafira Kerias said...

He stubborn let him stay stubborn. I dont think I can see Derek willingly getting Twitter. Dont forget he was forced to get a Blog xD how many times did he (still does) complain about the Blog?

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I think me and Gero should just turn up at his house and force him to get Twitter;D

Karla said...

Hey Derek! Im German but I love your blog anyway!
Do you (or anybody else) know whether a tour in Germany is planned?

Thrust Ominous said...

Awe. Hi Derek!!

Zafira Kerias said...

Phaha! I wonder if we beg Derek might come talk

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Germany Tour early next year, I believe!

I remember reading that. c:

I doubt it, Zaf. xD

Molly, Minion of the Golden God and Insane Book Addict. said...

The end of that episode...

*Feels like heart has been torn out and stomped on*

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

I am actually quite scared of what Derek might do in the last book.

But I honestly hope Ghastly, China, Fletcher, Ravel and Valkyrie die. I shan't even explain why. Purely because it's funny watching you try to guess why. :P

Zafira Kerias said...

But no American tour! Bloody fools...

Zafira Kerias said...

I want Valkyrie and China DEAD, I want the American Grand Mage dead *cracks knuckles*

Thrust Ominous said...

I'm an awkward hugger, but ok...

Yeah I think it would've been much better as a surprise. Watching the episodes months after they've come out helps, but sometimes you can't help yourself and you find some random news and everything is spoiled. Like the time- wait no...no... *smirk* I'm not going to tell you...

SPOILER!!!!!!!!!
I thought it was very... Complicated. Too annoying how the doctor goes back to the beginning... Wouldn't that ruin it for a,y's future? Which she doesn't have..


SPOILER OVARRRRR




Thrust Ominous said...

Even though I thought the quality of the epicness of this new series so far has been a little diminished... Maybe it's the commercials.

Zafira Kerias said...

I thought this one was pretty good. I guessit could have been a tad better.

I agree if Derek kills a character off he wont tell us. Which kinda worries me. I actually like Sanguine

Zafira Kerias said...

Hmm...so far in SP like all the Americans are evil!

Davina Marr: part of the plan to blow up the Irish Sanctuary

Dreylan Scarab: killer, and attempted mass murder

Billy-Ray Sanguine: hit man, killer, physcopath

Junior Administrator to Bisilhani: goes off and..errs well keep it there

Luna Brightside said...

Amy was my favorite assistant D':

Zafira Kerias said...

Im saddened!!!!

salman said...

hello

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Maddie asked me the other day - does your taken name have to be two names? Like a first and second name? Or are there no rules?

And I was wondering, are the short stories that we've not yet got in the UK going to be made available? Like in the back of KotW new paperback or something?

Annnd, DEREK WILL YOU GET TWITTER?

britt said...

WELL I DIDNT KNOW UNTIL I READ THIS!!! SERIOUSLY I WAS JUST ABOUT TO WATCH IT. THANKS.

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Derek, if you read this, have you read any of my dedications? I'd really like your opinion on them! Especially the one to you - which can be found on my blog under the title of Hope.

I'm just asking all the questions I wish I could've asked at a signing. :3 And I'm asking them so I don't forget them. And I'm thinking of them because my therapist advises I focus on one thing when I feel as though I'm going to have an attack. And Skulduggery never leaves my mind, so SP became my coping method. :3

Willow Storm said...

Hello?

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

Hello, Willow.

I've decided, Derek hates me. XD

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

OPPA GANGNAM STYLE. C':

OMFGG. CAN YOU IMAGINE DEREK DANCING TO GANGNAM STYLE!?

Willow Storm said...

Luce, surprisingly, I can.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Why am I the only one who has no clue what Gangam Style is?

Willow Storm said...

WHAT?
*screams*
STUPID LIBRARY, WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU GAVE AWAY THOSE COPIES!? STUPID TOWN! STUPID LIBRARY!

Flame Phoenix said...

Haha, Derek- after I read that post I have go say~

A kick ass 400 hundred year old, SKELETON detective,

And his side-kick, the most charming, bad ass teenage girl, who's hiding a deep dark secret,

I MEAN HOW COULD YOU NOT SHIP THAT?

I hate Valduggery, but that had to be said.

Steak ftw.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

What copies?!?!?!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

THE MENTAL IMAGE OF DEREK DANCING TO GANGNAM STYLE IS BETTER THAN THE MENTAL IMAGE OF DEREK DANCING TO CARAMEL DANSEN.

I THINK I MIGHT GO DIE, NOW...

Eden Threatening said...

i dont have a clue what it is either.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

L., what about Derek in a tux?

Although I am listening to it for the first time now, and I have to agree with you.

Willow Storm said...

THE COPIES OF SP!

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Willow, are you SERIOUS?!?!

Eden Threatening said...

okay what is gangnam style,
and dont post any links because I'm in a room with my family.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

It is a song. And it is brilliant. And Derek should dance to it, because we would all fall over laughing.

YES! THEY WERE THE ONLY WAY I COULD READ THEM. Except for Skulduggery Pleasant, Death Bringer, The End of the World and Kingdom of the Wicked, since I have those.

HEEEEEYYYY SEXY LADIES~

OH OH OH GANGNAM STYLE!

Kestrel LeStarre said...

How dare they!

Where are you Willow? Like, what country?

Kestrel LeStarre said...

OPPA GANGNAM STYLE!

Luciana Clover Scáth said...

GANGNAM STYLE IS A KOREAN SONG BY PSY AND IT'S SO AMAZING IT HURTS.

AND DEREK DANCING TO IT WOULD RESULT IN ME CRYING WITH LAUGHTER.

WAIT, I AM ALREADY CRYING/LAUGHING NOW.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

Golden God, that image..!

But what would be even better would be if he danced to it in a TUXEDO!

Willow Storm said...

Ireland. Stupid, F*king Ireland.

Kestrel LeStarre said...

I'm not going to ask what that is about.

Willow Storm said...

I want to learn Korean.

I actually had forgotten it was the Pond's final episode - I thought there was one more. So, yes, the ending was a shock and I cried SO HARD. Like, cover-your-face-with-both-hands-sobbing-and-shaking hard.

Maralie Charm said...
