Tomorrow will see the release of Blue Lily, Lily Blue, the highly anticipated third title in Maggie Stiefvater’s Raven Cycle series. It’s a bit of an understatement to say that all three of us here at Lady Business are fans: love for this series spread among us like wildfire after Renay reviewed The Raven Boys last year, and we’ve been counting down the days until the next book is in our hands. To celebrate its arrival, I’ve invited a few of our friends — Aarti, Jenny, Memory and Teresa — to come discuss the series and speculate wildly about what Stiefvater might have in store for us. Please feel free to join in in the comments! Needless to say, spoilers for the first two books will abound.
Discussion of The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves. :D
I’m reading The Raven Boys and love it. I can’t wait to read the others.
Come not between a dragon and his wrath.
Guys I’m not even gonna lie to you but I stared at this photoset and for a moment I was like “it’s weird that they only ever have animated or CGI dragons and they don’t use real ones”

so hear me out, bucky is starting to recover his memories but new york is too much for him so he does what all avengers (whether theyre officially avengers or not) do when things are too much and high tails it out to california
he meets kate there and by meets I mean she’s doing her usual biting off more than she can chew thing and he helps her out. he’s not quite sure why he steps in, something about a wannabe hero in an alleyway facing down bullies that she cant possibly hope to beat tugs at the fragments of memories in his head. and wow she is just as ungrateful as the stringy brat he halfway remembers, all over done bravado and thank you very much but I totally didnt need a strangers help I have got this super hero business completely under control
most of the thugs escape but theres one that bucky’s got a hold of and the winter soldier’s instincts take over for a moment and he moves to kill him but then kate is there at his shoulder, swatting his head saying are you new to this or something we dont do that sort of thing
bucky’s very confused because this weird girl is chattering at him like he’s not a deadly assassin and she says ‘we’ who is we? he’s very confused now and the thug twists out of his grasp and slips away, he makes like he’s going to disappear into the night as well but kate grabs his elbow and leads him back out onto the street offhandedly mentioning something about ‘pancakes’ and ‘great all night diner’ and ‘but do you have money tho?’
they keep running into each other like that for awhile and kate always drags him out for breakfast food afterwards (for which he always has to pay)
long story short they bond over repeated chance meetings and pancakes and bc he maybe lets something slip, something vague, about being the winter soldier and the things that were done to him, and kate doesnt recoil and she doesnt pity him, she doesnt say any bullshit about it ‘getting better’ she just says yeah it sucks in a short clipped tone then flicks a sausage at his head and laughs when he uses his super soldier reflexes to snap his head back and catch it in his mouth.
