    The Wise Man’s Fear Book Club Episode 122 covering Chapters 102-103, in our ongoing read of the Kingkiller Chronicle by Patrick Rothfuss.

     

    In this episode… 

    ♪ When the moon hits your eye in the weird faen sky that’s amore,

    When the beams seem to shine and you turn them to twine that’s grammorie,

    In the glade, girlfriend weaves a shaed, sexy games are played, you’re afraid that your drowning,

    And we’ll rhyme, in a metric line, during the whole time, and its prime syllable counting! ♪

    This is a juicy episode chock full of interesting historical facts, iambic pentameter, astronomical terms, deep mystery and magic, and a moist brush with danger.

    What do you call the dark side of the moon? Which stone doors are the REAL doors of stone? What would the Faen Zodiac signs even look like?

    The KKC subreddit hits us with the really important questions, and we discuss the latest news on the Kingkiller Television series.

    All this and so much more.

    Next book club covers chapter 104: The Cthae!

    “The Wise Man’s Fear” Ch 100-101: Made in the Shaed

    “The Wise Man’s Fear” Ch 100-101: Made in the Shaed

    “The Wise Man’s Fear” Book Club episode recapping chapters 100-101, from Patrick Rothfuss’ best-selling fantasy series- The Kingkiller Chronicle.

    In this episode, Felurian realizes that if she is going to have to let Kvothe return to the mortal world, he is going to need some protection. It’s time for a field trip and arts and crafts, Kvothe MAYBE dies, we’re not quite sure. What’s the deal with how time and directions in the Fae realm, and why can’t Kvothe seem to remember where all the food is coming from?

    It’s pretty scary being in the dark, and is making a Shaed like boiling a frog? We could explain how the magic works, but it would just be lost in translation.

    We talk all this, and more.

    “The Wise Man’s Fear” Ch 99: Faens with Benefits

    Ep 120 of CasterQuest “The Wise Man’s Fear” Book Club episode recapping Chapter 99: Magic of a Different Kind

    In this episode, Felurian schools Kvothe in the mystical arts of foreplay. Kvothe tries to pry information about the Amyr and Chandrian from his fairy girlfriend, but for once she doesn’t seem very enthusiastic about sharing. Kvothe ponders his reputation, and we wonder what’s the point of crafting reputation. We talk about the Tehlin church, the baffling Faen culture, and try to piece together some of the puzzle of ancient Temerant history.

    “The Last Unicorn” Ch 1-2: Who gave the Unicorn anxiety??

    “The Last Unicorn” Ch 1-2: Who gave the Unicorn anxiety??

    Welcome to the first episode of our Summer mini-book club, recapping Peter S. Beagle’s classic- The Last Unicorn chapters 1-2. Admittedly- this was supposed to be a three episode run. But it’s starting to look like it’s probably going to be more like 6-8 episodes soooo, enjoy.

    We introduce the story, which is a favorite of both Erin and Patrick Rothfuss. We discuss some of the controversy behind the book rights, meeting Peter S. Beagle in person, and then we kick off the recap where we join the Unicorn on her journey out of her secluded forest to find if she truly is the Last Unicorn.

    Fanfiction 4th of July V

    **NSFW 18+ EXPLICIT CONTENT WARNING**

    CasterQuest’s famous 4th of July Fanfiction Extravaganza returns for it’s triumphant 5th year!

    Featuring 5 readers all crammed into the same room together, 6 wild and sexy stories, and special guest Liz  from Nerdy Bitches Podcast  

    This episode is full of Puns, drinking, and insanity and in all honesty is probably shouldn’t have been allowed to be created- just like America.

    * Untitled Billy Mays X Vince Smut by The Cake is an Absolute Lie  Billy Mays (Oxiclean commercials) and Vince (The Shamwow Guy) make a mess.

    * Jealous Blond Kitten by PotterHead Madi Harry Potter and his Husband Draco Malfoy struggle to be intimate when parenthood and jealousy interfere in their love life.

    * Die Hard and Dragons by Dances with Dragons A group of terrorists attack Naktomi Plaza on Christmas eve, and NYPD Cop John McClane is going to need help from a Targaryen and her Dragon if they are going to free the hostages.

    * Falling by BlackKat Harry Potter falls through space and time, he lands in the Big Easy- and straight into the hands of the Ragin’ Cajun Remy LeBeau.

    * 50 Shades of Grimace by JimJim415 The Big purple thing from the McDonald’s commercials hooks up with the weird yellow bird from the McDonald’s commercials.



    We are so, so sorry.

    Happy 4th of July!
