    Yeah, on the smartphone I can't read for more than an hour. It's fine for a waiting room or something, but I wouldn't be able to finish a whole book that way.

    I just got a chill of anticipation. I feel like my world has been frozen since I finished Ghost Story. Harry Dresden. A dish best served cold?

    OK I'll stop. but gorramn it its about time! I only discovered the books at the beginning of this year so I got to read through 13 books in a row, 14 if you count Side Jobs and then there was the TV show and the comics and then there was....
    nothing.

    But once again there is Light! Once again there is hope! Once again there is fire! Lots of and lots of fire! Fuego!

    How are the comics? Because wonder of wonders, I actually found them in a bookstore here. Normally, the comic section in local bookstores here is one shelf containing two tons of Belgian and French comics, some mainstream Shonen manga from ten years ago and two or three old marvel trade paperbacks.

    Are they a good adaption? The TV show was weird. Not bad, necessarily, just not very good and not with much in common to the books.

    I just want Harry to end up with Murphy, ok? And we didn't see Michael at all in the last few books. And Mouse is too awesome to be left out. And Maggie is going to show up again, you know it.
    Hmm? i must say that personaly i would prefer him to end up with Molly, mostly due to Harry's extended lifespan being unfair to both him and Murphy.

    He can't end up with Molly. That's just icky.

    And the comics are fine. The ones that are remakes of the novels are kinda bland don't really add much. But the Welcome to the Jungle one was pretty cool

    That's one reason I'm hoping Murphy takes up Gard on her offer by the end.

    I see at as more of a both are an option kinda thing. He can love Murphy for the fullness of her life. Then one day once him and Molly both have a century or so under there belts and she is his equal instead of his student they can enter into a relationship of equals.

    They weren't? I think Harry even made a few comments like that. Or maybe it was Bob. He has so many potential love interests over the series. At least four- off-hand, probably more. Some get killed off.

    Yeah, but it's what, a year per book? If four or so love interests in over a decade == harem, then gee, I apparently qualify.

    Harry doesn't have a harem, he just suffers from serial monogamy.

    Its more appropriate to just say that he suffers. The things that Jim Butcher has his characters deal with.

    But right now, Molly is seriously broken, and Harry is mostly at fault. So getting her back on a sane track is more important than getting into her pants

    Nah, Jim never writes anything that isn't important, so I'm thinking not only will Harry end up a Winter Knighted Dark Hallowed Denarian by the Big Ass Trilogy, but Murphy will end up a Sword-Bearing Valkyrie.

    You obviously have skewed priorities in life.


    I doubt that Molly and Harry will end up together. At least initially. Maybe a hundred years down the road, but not at first. Harry's too attached to Murphy for that to fly. And Murphy would probably kill him. Michael definately would.

    I would disagree with that, but I've lost that arguement before.

    Of course one of the things I'm curious about is what's going to happen between Harry and Anastasia Luccio.

    Yeah, it allready reached the point where it is no longer Icky in ghost story, Molly is an adult now, and she is no longer Harry's student.

    I was speaking more of them dealing with each other as Warden and what ever Harry is going to be considered after he comes back. Their previous relationship is only going to make that more ... interesting.

    No longer Immoral, still a little Icky. I don't see Harry being okay with it though. In his mind, She'll always be some combination of his student/his friend's daughter. Plus, GHOST STORY SPOILERS
    Spoiler
    Show

    He used her to arrange his own assassination, then wipe his memory of it. He ha her to become complicit in his death, violate the third law (Again), and then had her spend two years being the only one (Besides Kincaid, the Archive, and a few Angels) who knew what had happened. While Murphy, Thomas, and everybody else was trying to find Harry's killer, She had to sit there, knowing exactly what happened, and not tell anybody.
    In the process he drives her crazy, and sends her into the loving care of his psychotic godmother.
    And guess what, in the end, It Did Not Work.
    The Point is, Harry is probably feeling a truckload of Guilt as far as Molly is concerned. While there ARE people out there who would start their reparations at crotch level, Harry is not one of them.

    Clearly, the only equitable solution is for Winter Knight Denarian Black Councilman Harry to rule the world with an iron fist while Molly, Murphy, and Luccio kneel chained to his throne in go-go outfits.

    There is a world of difference in no longer being directly taught by him and not being "His Student" At the end of the day Harry is her Mentor, her gate to world of her adult life. It would be Icky and Immoral for him to take advantage of that situation to date her until well into her more mature years.
