The Dying of the Light

The final book.

The last Skulduggery.

I've been writing these books since 2005, so for me it's been nine years of living with these characters, in this world. I knew saying goodbye was not going to be easy...

But I haven't had to say goodbye yet. Not really. I wrote the book. I edited. I went through it again and again. I decided on covers, on approaches. I approved tour schedules and special events. I prepared. I tweeted. I blogged. I kept busy. I kept looking forward...

But now... now (most of) the preparation is done. I just have to turn up now, and talk, or sign, or talk and sign, and meet people and go places.

It's going to sink in NOW. I can feel it.

No more Skulduggery Pleasant.


I'm going to give my usual "No Spoilers" speech now. So, like, no spoilers, people. The comment section above is for spoilers, not this one.

But even outside of this blog, please be considerate of your fellow Minions. Don't go blasting spoilers on Facebook or Twitter or Tumblr. Be subtle about it, and if you can't be subtle, go LOUD with the spoiler warning.

And when I say spoiler I don't just mean" "Oh my god, I can't believe THIS CHARACTER did THAT to THAT OTHER CHARACTER!"

I also mean spoilers in a more general sense. For example, saying things like: "Derek, I can't believe you did that! I'll never forgive you! How could you?? That was my favourite character!!"

Or: "I'm so delighted! I loved it and the ending was just what I wanted!"

You have friends, Minions, who know your hopes and dreams. They know your favourite characters. They know what you're dreading. So don't confirm any of these things when you comment, even if you make sure not to get too specific. If you love the book, tell me. If you hate the book, tell me that too. But keep in mind that other people will be reading, and if you give away what kind of ending the book has, you've just cheated them out of finding out for themselves.

I love your enthusiasm. Your enthusiasm makes these books what they are. So while you're being considerate of your friends, be sure to revel in your enthusiasm, and your excitement, and your dread, and your horror, and your happiness and your despair.

I hope you like it.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I'm crying, Derek. I'm truly crying. *hugs* I'm so glad I got into SP, even if I live over in the US, I really am scared/excited for TDOTL, maybe it'll come early...-Zaf

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

...this will soon be goodbye....no. Not goodbye. Just, till we meet again. Hopefully. Probably not. Let's be honest this will probably be goodbye. The real goodbye....

Damn you Derek.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I can't believe a year ago I was screeching because I was in LSODM, now I'm sitting here, rocking because I'm scared to think about whats to come....-Zaf

Anonymous said...

I forgot to order this book 'next day' on Amazon so I might not get a copy until September. Cries.

Unknown said...

This cover is like the Baron Vengeous of books. Stare at it long enough and you feel like your whole body is going to rupture.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Ahaha true.-Zaf

Unknown said...

Gosh, I'm not ready. :(

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Okay I'm not ready for this, I'm truthfully not. Okay, I am seriously considering just staying in bed and dreading thus until tomorrow....wait that's what I'm doing now

Inky Flame said...

Inky Flame said...

Hi! Finally a person.-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I'm fine, just dreading tomorrow....-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

Im in two minds about it tbh

on one hand I want to find out how the ultimate ending will end

but then again...no more Skeleton detective...*cries in corner*

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I have to wait until the 8th to even get it, so you know...I have a while yet. 11 days...-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

ahhh...mine comes tomorrow

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Lucky. :/-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

In a way..but the series will end sooner for me and then ill be depressed

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

True....I just want the book already, its like I wait so long anyway-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

it must be a pain to wait :/

Queen Flora Ophelia of the Flowers; Leader of the New Land of Stickers; Prophet of the New Order; General of the Shadow People said...

I've followed this book series - and been a major fan and avid reader - since the year it was first published. That's seven whole years. Seven long years of having Skulduggery and Val be in my life, and always having something unknown in their future to look forward to.

But after tomorrow it'll all be over. No more years, no more unknown.

I don't want it to end, pure and simple. I wish it would continue forever - always having new stories and battles and adventures to sink my teeth into and hide away in the corner reading for hours on end. But then again, the things that are dragged on long past their expiration date somehow never stay as special. So, although I'll only have the nine books and the extra stories - a limited account of the story I will always want more of - I think it'll be okay.

Of course, I'll do the typical fangirl thing of mourning for the unattainable more, but once that passes I'll just be happy, I think. Because yes, the books are finished. But that doesn't have to be a sad thing. I can reread them whenever I want, and there will always be something in there which I’ll have forgotten and so will feel new to me - like, a small anecdote or a passing comment. The finale doesn't have to be sad because it means that it happened. And I would much rather that all of this happened and is now over, than I never found the stories that I will love for all my life.

So yes, there will be tears, but there will be smiles too - the old cliché.

I will miss the wait game between books and the conspiracy theories that decorated my internet feeds. But I'm looking to the future, whilst keeping the past fondly in mind.


So, finally, thank you Derek Landy.
Thank you for being hilarious and sarcastic.
Thank you for being someone who pays attention to his fans and cares for them and their wellbeing.
Thank you for creating a community that, although has its rough periods, is caring and loving and completely accepting.
But most of all, thank you for creating this series. These books changed my life when I didn't expect them to, when I simply picked up a book with a skeleton detective on the front and orange edged pages and expected nothing more than another story.

I will forever remain a dear fan.

Yours,
Flora

Hey Sil *sniffles*

Dragona Pine said...

(Hello.)

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

It's ending. I..it still hasn't dawned on me that its ending. My brain refuses to accept it. It hasn't hit me yet. I'm not sure whether to be glad or angry that I can't comprehend the words 'the end' because I don't know how I'll feel when it happens....

Inky Flame said...

hey Dragon

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Hey guys. How are you all?

Inky Flame said...

im listening to mika to prolong my happiness

Inky Flame said...

Hey Rhyd! Tired...very tired

Dragona Pine said...

("There is no real ending. It’s just the place where you stop the story." - Frank Herbert.)

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Hey Ink! I'm a mess too :P tired and can't believe SP has met its end. Atm I'm in bed listening to music to drown out my sorrows

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Awesome quote Dragona...inspirational!

Inky Flame said...

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(*nods* I like that quote. I will listen to that quote. I think its hitting me now. Oh god. It's ending...it can't end...not skulduggery...not the book....no...I don't want it to end...oh god...)

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

I haven't left my room in hours....maybe I should let my parents know that I'm still alive.

Inky Flame said...

*nods* id advise that

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

*hugs sil tightly*

Dragona Pine said...

(... Am I the only one who isn't like emotional? :P)

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(.....what will I look forwards to now?!?!?!)

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Probably Drags :P

Jesus Christ/god help me, if I'm like this now I'm doomed when i get the book

Inky Flame said...

Derek's next piece of work?

@ Dragon
I try to be emotional at things but im just apathetic...this will hit me tho eventually

I don't cry in films...I didn't cry in the fault in our stars

Dragona Pine said...

(I don't get emotional at like... anything. :P)

Inky Flame said...

its going to be okay Rhyd *puts hand on his shoulder* we are all here to support eachother

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

For the past year I've been joining as many fandoms as possible so after this one I will have something to fall back on....yeah, it's not gonna work, I'll fall and die


Brb tea's ready.

Inky Flame said...

byii byii Rhyd

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(If the ending isn't amazing I will cry...granted if it IS amazing I'll probably cry also but if it isn't I will cry THEN be angry...and depending what happens I might be angry anyway....)

Inky Flame said...

Oh Sil :/

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I'm in tears....

I remember last year we were all anticipating what would happen to us, you know...which Minion is going to die...

Then we got LSODM and pretty much we died, Ravel did his thing and I can't believe it. Em was broken, she actually was broken, NJ....oh NJ....Giggler of the North read that bit with China and I freaked out.

God, its been such a great journey. So many amazing things happened to me, I can still hardly believe it happened. All I did was ask to borrow my friend's copy of the first book because she kept pestering me to read it.

Now look where I am. Good god....SP is over, Zaffy is crying...I think I need to plan my funeral arrangments.

Guys, I don't think it will sink in until I open the mail after school and see the package with TDOTL inside...

-Zaf

Dragona Pine said...

(It seems some of the best films/books etc have bad endings. *shrugs*
I like endings which get you thinking. :P
Like you could just take the ending as what it is, or you could analyse it and get into it and then it seems better.)

Inky Flame said...

*hugs Zaf* it has been a jorney

Ive only been into SP since the 6th book. It was the first book series I took interest in

Elleni the Ghost said...

The book may be over, but the fandom will live on, guys.
Skulduggery Pleasant will never die.
Because we will be alive now
ROSE F***ING GET HERE NOW

Elleni the Ghost said...

Where does she livw

Inky Flame said...

Australia?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Same. I jumped in right after Death Bringer...*laughs* God...it feels like it was only yesterday....

*cries* What will become of Derek? Can we all trust him to write something? He kills feels, will any of us actually have feels left?

-Zaf

Dragona Pine said...

(I presume Rose has threatened to kill herself again?)

Inky Flame said...

Derek must write something new...he has to

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

20 to 3am over there...she's an Aussie.

-Zaf

Elleni the Ghost said...

He'll write.

Elleni the Ghost said...

...

Dragona Pine said...

(I actually didn't like Death Bringer.)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Dragona, whats your email? It is best I email it...-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

how are you about this El?

Elleni the Ghost said...

I lovedDeath Bringer

@Inky: ??

Inky Flame said...

is it alright if I have peoples emails?

Im thinking of actually EMAILING people now that my emails are on my phone

Dragona Pine said...

(Zafira - I could read back through the comments if it's there.)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Death Bringer wasn't my favorite, actually KOTW was mine...-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

I mean...are you sad? desperate to get your hands on it or...?

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

It isn't, I haven't....fuck it.-Zaf

Elleni the Ghost said...

I'd say Mortal Coil was my favorite.

Inky Flame said...

my fav was dark days

Dragona Pine said...

(Ahem. First one was my favourite.)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

This is what Rose sent me, I have forwarded to most of you guys....At...8:16am my time...


know you'll eventually find this.

Of course you will. You'll look for the place I spend most of my time. Blogland. Of course it would be Blogland.

I've tried living your way. I've tried being the daughter you wanted me to be. I've tried being part of the family, but it doesn't work. I don't belong with you. I don't belong.

Then I tried my way. And this is how it turns out.

3am. That's when I left. That's when I left with a pair of shoelaces to tie around my neck and hang myself. I'm in the swamp somewhere. Really far in. You won't find me for a while. I'll make sure I really die this time. I'll overdose just before so that if it doesn't work, or the shoelaces snap, I still have that to rely on.

One way, or another, I die this very night.

I'd say that I love you, mum, dad, Jac, Matt, Keet, Roh. But I'd be lying. And lying is bad. You don't trust me anyway.

You think I'm doing this for attention.

Well you guys can all fuck yourselves. I've tried to reach out but no, I'm just doing it for attention. It's just an act.

I guess my death tonight is an act. To he honest, I'm too lazy to leave so I'm laying in bed like every other day. Just being a lazy, attention-seeking bastard.

Because that's all I am to you.

Inky Flame said...

awww, I found this cute pic that says 'eyeless jack loves kidney sandwiches!

Elleni the Ghost said...

Desperate to get my hands on it. Which wont happen for a while... -_- kind of sad, but every book series has to come to an end. There's a book series that just wont frickin' stop... It started when I was in kindergarten and its still going and I was like, "wut the fudge im done with dis"
But I'm also happy. This is it. The ultimate book of destruction... of characters and cities... and feels... and the book where all of our questions and wonders are answered.
Except probably Derek's taken name.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

It....usually is bad when I'm crying at the thought of TDOTL...-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

...

Dragona Pine said...

(Zafira - Ah.)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Plot twist: Derek's taken name is Ereskine Ravel.

-Zaf

Dragona Pine said...

(Even bigger plot twist: Derek's taken name is Mevolent.)

Elleni the Ghost said...

HA! HAHA

Dragona Pine said...

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Dragona Pine said...

(Aren't we having a Requiem Ball on here, too?)

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(@El I'm on my phone, sorry :c)

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

I'm gonna try and see if Corvo's parents can take us both. They're more flexible than mine so i think that's how I'm getting there but I dunno. No matter what I'm going, eben if that means I walk it :P

Elleni the Ghost said...

*hugs Dugglyn*
Sh, its okay...
I had to wait 2 months for LSODM, Dugglyn. We shall meet in exactly 21 days, you understand xD i need that book. Imma borrow yours..

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, OTHER CREATURES LURKING!!

Bring your insanity, Blogland Balls win...

-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(Blogland requiem ball is..ugh dates...midnight GMT on...a day....Zaf knows...)

Elleni the Ghost said...

Im doing live streaming

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Live streaming? Streaming what?

Jophiel said...

Two minutes...

Zaf, you posted it a little early...

<3

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(*points at what Zaf said* there you go Draggie.

Not sure on that respect yet Flick. Imma have to coach it myself...and possibly rent a room somewhere....hmmmm.....

..Rhydian...where do you and corvo live?)

Elleni the Ghost said...

ROSE!!!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Tomorrow we can live stream the Requim Ball in London...good god will Derek actually be dressed up?-Zaf

Dragona Pine said...

(I think it should be changed from midnight. Most people are on at about 8 GMT.)

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

DEATHY JESUS CHRIST YOU TERRIFIED ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

No, its called I posted it before you do something you'll regret.-Zaf

Inky Flame said...

Hey Death...worried me there, you did

Jophiel said...

How can I regret it when I'm dead? I'll be dead.

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Me and Corv live in Lancashire. That's all I'm saying for Internet safety reasons sil

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

You'll regret it because you'll be alive, because guess what, Rose? There's an angel watching you, and obviously it isn't your time, so you may as well get comfy on Earth.-Zaf

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

*hugs Death*
What happened to twelve hours warning?!

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Hey Rose!

Jophiel said...

Getting comfy in Themis hellhole isn't going to bloody work. This place is shit. I'm not going to lie. But ugh!

Jophiel said...

The twelve hours warning can get screwed. I wasn't going to run away at 10am. I'd be at school.

Rhy.

Rose, for god's sake, what do you think is so horrible that dying is worth it? Dying is not the answer, it never is. Someone who has a terminal illness would be so grateful to have the chance to live, which you do. Take that chance and let it blossom.

-Zaf

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

Twelve hours! It doesn't matter if I'm HERE! Twelve hour warning.

Elleni the Ghost said...

I CANT FRICKING DO THE LIVE STREAM D:

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

Why not El?

Elleni the Ghost said...

Its 4 AM on the first day of school

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

Ahhh...oh poor you...
Also as a reply to what you said earlier...

I RESENT NEEDING SLEEP!

Elleni the Ghost said...

No, seriously Sil, I need to focus on homework and you need sleep. I get distracted way too easily. Just the weekends.

Elleni the Ghost said...

Requiem ball is noon on August 28th right?

Dragona Pine said...

(I don't think I can participate in the Requiem Ball that will be on this blog. Due to the fact that it will be at midnight. I will try but yeah.)

Lewis Ravenscroft / Rhydian Blake said...

Gtg now. Bye!

Elleni the Ghost said...

Yknow what im just gonna go to sleep at like 9 PM and get up at 4

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

:( But I usually don't sleep anyway.....fine. Just the weekend I suppose. Unless its a happy accident that We're both on. That's fair. *nods*

Inky Flame said...

Byii Rhyd

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

It lasts all day, it just STARTS at midnight, Dragona. Its basically all day Saturday.

Usualy we generaly di all rp is paused, so say Ari wanted to take Niccolò, she can go with Nic and all rp is paused.

It also means you can go as yourself, or any character of yours. Usually we put our profile pics up of what we wear but if you have multiple people just post them on a blog or link.

-Zaf

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(Personally I plan to bring ALL my characters. Well...not Evil Sil. Normal Sil, Ashlea, James, Erica and Manuel.)

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Hmmm... I'll probably go with myself.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

I'm back...
I've calmed down. Kinda.

Inky Flame said...

(if I am on...ill bring my creepypasta friends/the characters as well as inky and chris

im going for a nice warm bath now

b back later)

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

All my Asgardians will be going, and my SP characters.-Zaf

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

And El, about the book, well I have to read it first! And then my other friend but she'll definitely finish it in one day, I'll probably be two or three.... cause I'll have school...
And if you steal it!!! Well you don't know where I live but if you steal my special shadow edition...
I. Will. Kill. You. No. Joke. On. Tuesday. By. Decapitating. You.

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(Oh and...no one attack Erica and James at the ball please? They aren't going to be fighting...just chatting....)

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

My mom just bought me fifty dollars worth of SP books. O_O :D D': 8D :O :-) :-) :-) D'''""": :D

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

I'll just bring myself. I'll go with myself. I'll talk to myself. Well maybe not talk to myself.... I'll talk to you all but it sounded good.

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

REALLY FABI?! THAT'S SOOOOOOOOOOOO COOL!!!!!!!! YOU'RE SOOOOOOOOOOOO LUCKY!!!!! ENJOY!!!!!

Dragona Pine said...

(Well, I've already designed some concepts for what Leri could look like at the ball (which basically involves just changing her hood from purple and white to black, changing her suit fastenings to black rather than gold and then giving her like a skirt...
Sophia will probably just come in wearing her uniform...
The Assassin will be invisible most of the time.)

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Idk what I'd where.... definitely me mask.

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(@Draggie I hope you realise Sil still wants to make Sophia wear a dress....

I just realised Manuel has no one to go with....awww...

Sil will be wearing a long silver dress and probably have her hair up in a side bun.. or something...
I'm thinking blue dress for Ashlea...not sure bout her hair get cause she might be changing it.
Erica a red dress hair loose with slight waves
Manuel in a black suit
James in a navy suit maybe...or white.)

Dragona Pine said...

(Sophia refuses to wear a dress. :P)

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

YES.

I HAD BEEN WAITING TO ORDER AOH AND TDOTL BECAUSE I HAVE NO MONEY, BUT MOM DECIDED SHE WAS GOING TO GET ME THEM AND TEOTW (which I've been unable to get) AS A PRESENT AND EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Dun't worry Sil! Plenty o people don't have someone to go with!

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(@Fabi LUCKY!!!)
(Sil: Sophia SHALL wear a dress! Mwahahaha!)

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Most of my characters don't have anyone to go with.

Rook and Effie have each other, though.

If I drop in, I might do so as them... Or Aevil, if I'm in an Aevil mood... We'll have to see, though. I probably won't be able to come.

Dragona Pine said...

(Sophia: I'm more likely to wear a heavy mech to the ball.)

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Yeah, I had to buy AGOH by myself but my parents bought TDOTL for me. But Idk if they know....

Elleni the Ghost said...

LUCKY FABIII :)

No promises, Sil...

Elleni and I are coming. You guys will find out my given name then. For a limited time.

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(Sil: Oh don't worry. I haz a plan.

Also when does evil Sil wake up? She wasn't very happy about being drugged.)

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Yeah... I'm coming as Dugglyn. Cause she's basically me.

Elleni the Ghost said...

(Sil got drugged?)

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

El, are you (as a character) coming with anyone?

Elleni the Ghost said...

Dugg, correct? Requiem Ball is 4 Am for us tomorrow...?

I'll be drawing my dress ASAP :)

Jai (Silente Tempest - St Of Sinners) said...

(Yeah. The assassin put her under yesterday.)

Dragona Pine said...

(The Assassin drugged her, saving her life in the process.


Sophia: You will not get me into a dress.)

Dugglyn Carzainia said...

Like the real ball? In London? With Derek Landy?

Elleni the Ghost said...

Uh... people who are coming

Vivanus!

I'm terribly sorry to bother you, but if you have a moment, could you look at the tie-breaker post on Guess the Bloglandian? Or at least be aware of its existence, and look at it sometime in the reasonably near future? It'd be appreciated.

Dragona Pine said...

(Yes, the one on here.


Sophia: I will rip you apart.




For the record, Sophia will wear this:

And that's pretty much all but her armour she'd accept to wear...)
