Probably chasing French poodles and sausages in Arizona.

Anonymous asked: So, the Winter Knight likes free-running and Spider-man. I guess this means you're a fan of Peter Parkour?

Heyooooooooooh!

lightsonluna asked: Does Jim Butcher's jaw ever just drop when hears what you've done?

I usually don’t see him when he reads my notes so I don’t see his reactions. But I am pretty sure he dug the animated T-Rex spiel and I think part of the new casefile got to him too.

Nope, not saying what it is, either.

samurai-ko asked: The knowledge of the Archive passes from mother to daughter, right? But (Gods forbid this happens) what if something were to happen to Ivy before she ever has children? Does it pass to someone else? Or is that knowledge just... lost?

Best guess? It’s a Mantle of Power like the ones for the Knights and Queens. The Mantle would find the nearest suitable vessel.

Thank God it’s nothing I have to worry about getting.

No offense, Ivy.

dresdenlvr79 asked: Harry, Now that you've taken the mantle of the Winter Knight, has the dynamic of your relationship with Leah changed? It seemed that prior, with maybe the exception of the Changes care file, it was adversarial.

Uh, I wouldn’t say it was adversarial. I wouldn’t say it was cooperative either. I think in technical terms it was more messed up that a beehive hairdo in a hurricane.

It’s early, and that’s the best analogy I can come up with without coffee.

Anyway, I think maybe I just understand it better because I understand the Sidhe better. It sure as hell isn’t because I understand women better.

Anonymous asked: So I just recently read your most recent casefiles and I noticed you stopped referring to Karrin as Murphy and started calling her mostly by her first name. I don't remember if you ever mentioned why that was and I'm curious about little things like that. (Though I do have my theories).

NO COMMENT.

Anonymous asked: So do Legos work for magic? A guy in Utah has made all of Salt Lake City out of Legos and that's the only reason I can fathom.

Almost anything can work for magic. Ask the demon I summoned who had LEGO Batman as a homunculus.

Well, I thought it was pretty cool.

darthapeiron asked: Even if you remain convinced that a few centuries down the line, you'll never be Merlin, I could still see you following Rashid's footsteps and becoming Gatekeeper, especially considering your... natural proclivity and involvement in the scenario. Do you think that's one reason Rashid keeps supporting you?

God, I hope not.  The Outer Gates are scarier than Joan Rivers without makeup.

Or with, actually.

Harry to the Outsiders: “WHAT is your name?  WHAT is your QUEST?”

Leave it to you, grasshopper, to make the job almost appealing.

Almost.

Anonymous asked: Hypothetical situation: It's oh-dark-thirty at night, there's something out there attempting to violate your personal space with all of the pointy appendages at its disposal, and the street lights just went out all at once. You go for your blasting rod. What's one thing you don't want to feel it covered in at that precise moment in time?

Wait, which blasting rod are we talking about? Euphemistic or literal?
