It is week four, week four, week four, of speculation and confirmation and insight and lore!
Okay. That was bad. But still! It’s week four of book club! Last week, we drew for our first random giveaway (one post in any of the previous weeks was enough to put you in the running) and @Drus was our winner. This week, we will continue to venture forth and do good things, like conjecture and share crackpot theories. Again, a quick reminder that the discussion points below are totally optional and only there to stimulate your thinking. We welcome all your ideas and feels and comments.
1. Imagination is nothing more than memory transposed, as we all know well by now. And as Itsuki pointed out to us so long ago, magiq would not be possible if not for memory. What magiq have you created with your transposed memories?
2. If you could see the events of these chapters from another perspective, whose would you choose?
3. In these chapters we experience the magiq of the lie in a very real way, as things change and fluctuate even as we experienced them. Things disappearing, new things popping up, and alterations to what we thought we knew. Two realities existing side by side before one overcomes the other. Do you believe, as Marty proposed, that it is possible Brandon did not die in 1986? That he only appeared to have been found dead because that was what Marty believed?
4. These chapters involved a lot of footwork. What location, real or fictional, intrigues you most. And why?
As always, Mountaineers, if you can pick out any themes or Easter Eggs from this week, please feel free to share! Your original thoughts, related ideas, or favorite lines from the book are always welcome in our discussion. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to @ me or another Guild Leader for guidance.
CREATIVE PROMPT: The theme of the chapter selection of this week is “Scurry for the Truth.” Using the theme of this week for inspiration, please share with us your own written/visual/auditory creation.
