Kid 2: Mom, why are KD fans so extra?
Me: I have no idea.
Kid 2: It’s a very flattering.
Kid 2: And kind of scary.
Me: Yes. They have no chill.
In my head
Hidden Legacy = HL Innkeeper Chronicles = IC Kate Daniels = KD
HL fans eating samoas and sipping tea.
HL 1: It is romance.
HL 2: I love it and I love you, but it’s not.
HL 1: I value your feelings but have to respectfully disagree. If you put all three books into one giant book…
HL 3: I think both of your arguments are solid, but I wanted to go into a different direction. I have this new theory. Listen, I think Grandma Frida is Caesar…
At the other side of the table IC fans are nibbling on thin mints
IC 1: Look at this rose made out of crepes I found on Pinterest. Doesn’t it look like something Orro would make?
IC 2: Did you know IA has a pinterest board for IC?
IC 3 and IC 1: Oooh.
IC 3: All I am saying is that they better put enough book out or there might be ripper cushions. 😉
IC 2: Oh, hee-hee, you are too much.
The door bursts open and HL 4 runs in
HL 4: They’re coming!
IC 1: Grab the tea!
HL 2: Save the cookies.
IC 3: Shields up. Brace, brace, brace!
The horde of KD fans explodes through the door, wearing dirty armor, swinging blood-stained weapons, and screaming gibberish.
KD 1 roaring: The KD series is the best series! Amehe!
KD 2 bellowing: Kate and Curran are the BEST couple, the only couple, couple goals! Ranar kair! Join us!
KD 3: FUS RO DAH!
KD 1: What is wrong with you, Steve?
KD 3: Um, sorry, I got excited.
KD 2: Go sit in the corner and think about what you’ve done.
HL 1: Would you like a cookie?
KD 4: We spit on your cookie! We take our cookies dipped in vampire blood! Give us Kate Daniels or give us death!
KD 5, headbutting the table: Sharratum! I pledge myself to you, now and for all eternity!
Kid 2: Innkeeper fans are always nice to me. They just want to make puns and ask when the next book is coming out.
Kid 2: So Mom, what’s your schedule looks like for the next year?
Me, still watching an in-my-head movie of KD fans jumping on the table and kicking things: Ruby Fever, Iron and Magic 2, and then that forger thing you and I talked about. Why?
Kid 2: So theoretically Iron and Magic 2 would be finished next year, right?
Me: Yes. Why do you ask?
Kid 2: No reason. No reason at all. Love you.
