Eclipse is clearly asking for a friend. Definitely not envious of Anna's shoe collection himself.

Mark has been having an open vote on books and their 'grimdarkness', but there's still disagreement on what makes a book grimdark.
Will that question ever be answered?
And does it matter? ;D

Anna, do you feel you have the power over the rest of this (male) panel, after *that scene* in your book? ;D

Why the purple hair?  ;D

More seriously

What's your favourite fantasy trope/stereotype?

If you had to live the life of one of your characters, which one would you pick?

Do you have a favourite period of history/non-fantasy genre that you like to raid for inspiration?
