I don’t have meetings with Vadderung anywhere. Or at least I haven’t lately.

I mean, not with Vadderung.

Should I give the Jawas’ Christmas lists to you, or do I give them to Kringle myself?

I think you could probably give them yourself. You do sorta outrank Kringle.

Yeah, but Harry and Kringle are bros now.  I figure it’d be better coming from him.

Also, while I look forward to building a professional relationship with Kringle as fellow Winter royalty, I do not EVER plan to pull rank on him, particularly if it involves informing him where my family lives.  That’s like a recipe for a Christmas morning Jack Skellington-style.

You think he doesn’t already know, kid?

Dresden fandom: Who would you cast to play 17-year-old Harry?  I can’t recall him coming up in prior casting discussions.

Young, pre-Batman Christian Bale, maybe.

What? He was kinda dorky and thin like me.

Anonymous asked: Hi Molly. Mab was a mortal once, and now she's a Sidhe. I assume the Mantle changes its user over time? Or does it change the user as soon as you take the mantle?

padawanmolly:

It’s a gradual thing, as witnessed with Lily.  I’m determined to make it as gradual as freaking possible.  Well, as gradual as it can be, considering how much Reality needs a strong Winter Lady right now, and not rising to the demands of the job could put me and everyone I love in peril, so there are some aspects I can’t really fight.  But I won’t give up, because I refuse to let this mantle turn me into a sociopathic Maeve clone, even if the whole Lily thing indicates that me turning into Maeve is inevitable, and how much can I really resist the pull of one of the six most powerful forces in the universe? It’s like trying to ignore gravity. And no one can ignore gravity, even Wyle E. Coyote.  

Ten years from now, will I even recognize myself?  Will there be anyone left alive to recognize me if I manage to keep the mantle at bay for all that time and resist my duties?  Hell, it took three months for me to nearly disappear into the Ragged Lady identity.  Who am I kidding?

Harry has a strange gift for naming things.  Did him calling me “Molls” for the first time alter who I was at some fundamental level?  In the ramp up to Chichen Itza, did the universe decide it no longer needed a Molly?

Fuck this. Anyone want to go get waffles?

Fuck inevitable. I’m no Slate, you’re no Maeve, and I dig waffles.

Let’s do it.

Anonymous asked: You've been under true love protection, does the true love protection for the White Court protect you from being affected mentally, or does it just keep them from touching you without being burned?

Far as I can tell over ample tests with Lara and her pants-shrinking whammy, it’s touch only but maybe some help deflecting total mindfuckery .

Heh. Fuckery.

Thanks, I’ll be here all week. Don’t forget to tip your servers.
