Title: Mercyverse Characters Guilty Pleasures!
Post by: Has on November 14, 2011, 10:26:05 am
The Hurog mods interviewed Patty a while back when she was at NYCC for promo for the upcoming Fair Game release - Huge thanks to CarolKat (THANK YOU!!!) managed to catch up with Patty and ask her a few questions - (the interview will be posted in a few weeks or so. Sadly the planned vid interview didn't pan out well because the sound quality had problems but Elle is working on a transcription/Q&A email interview).

However one of the questions, which was what is the guilty pleasures that her characters have. Patty really loved this question and  inspired her to invite the fans to suggest what kind of guilty pleasures you think the characters may have. For example, Patty stated that Bran loves listening to  Japanese boy bands. If she likes any of the suggestions in this thread - they may be included in future books.
So suggest the most interesting, outlandish, funniest or kookiest guilty pleasure that the characters may have!

If Bran like Japanese boy bands...

Charles watches Korean dramas...or has a sweet tooth for Belgian Liege waffles (there's a real place that does them incredibly well in Seattle on 3rd street)

And Sam...loves to watch Totoro over and over again.

Maybe Darryl secretly hopes for a beta key for Diablo III.

Bran now has DBSK's "Balloons" as a theme song in my head...

I vote for Ben as a brony. He has the toys hidden in his room. And I can see Honey maybe eating only the oreo cream and putting the cookies back?

Maybe Charles likes to browse memes.

Asil's probably addicted to Angry Birds on his new iPhone.
Title: Re: Mercyverse Characters Guilty Pleasures!
Post by: Kkat07 on November 15, 2011, 07:15:40 pm
Angry Birds would probably be well liked by werewolves that can use computers or iPhones.  Catapulting kamikaze birds into pigs and buildings would be right up their alley. 

I'm not sure eating Oreos would count as a guilty pleasure with werewolves.  I mean, they eat enough food for a small army on a regular basis, and it's not like they have to worry about getting fat. 

Watching any Disney movie would probably be a guilty pleasure for werewolves. 

For Mercy, how about slipping weird things into people's coffee?  I believe she already does that when she's mad.

Ben-using his computer hacking skills to mess around with Adam's computer.

I'm having a hard time trying to come up with guilty pleasures for these guys... when I think of guilty pleasures, I think of things like a mug of deep dark hot chocolate, but it's already been established that they mostly all love chocolate, calories don't count for them, (which is pretty darn irritating BTW).  They can hardly get drunk because of their metabolism, so adding peppermint schnapps doesn't make it MORE guilty.  hmmm, bubble bath while reading a romance novel, nah, can't quite see that, cause the guys are still guys!  I've known guys who read a few romance novels, but it was mostly to figure out why women enjoyed them. 

Playing RPGs on line?  Or WoW?  Maybe, I could even see that as amusing for old weres, it's just so ridiculous.  Younger weres wouldn't have the conflict of having fought with swords 'back in the day' so it's not such a dilemma for them like as not. 

It's not like a huge steak when trying to watch your cholesterol works either, it's a tough on to find the right thing!

A gallon of french vanilla ice cream?  Maybe. Lasagna a la Garfield?  maybe...

I guess this is as diverse as the people who were turned, they could have as many guilty pleasures as the rest of us.  What makes it guilty though?  Is it something any human would rather keep quiet or is it specifically because the other reindeer, I mean wolves would laugh and call them names for? 

More and more men are doing things like quilting and sewing, just like there's a woman near me who does woodcarving etc.  I can understand anything like that being a draw when you need something that is contemplative and soothing to do... I can see how someone who has to be tough enough to hold their place in a wolf pack looking at a love of say quilting or knitting as a guilty pleasure I suppose.   Asil has his roses and other hothouse flowers though, so most of those things still don't quite fit the bill, except maybe in their own minds?

 Interesting topic!

Oh and @ BillG, I'm not sure religious music is what would make it a guilty pleasure... lots came to the church in River Marked, and it's been said that it wasn't the religion but the cold iron that was used that bothered the fae... still it would be a bit odd eh?

Watching any Disney movie would probably be a guilty pleasure for werewolves.

Maybe for some. But thinking of the younger ones, especially girls I just don't see it. Take Anna, for instance. She's young enough that it's very likely the Disney Princesses defined a large part of her childhood. And she seems to have the personality that would continue to appreciate some of the cleverness thrown in to the films. Not that I see her sitting down for a marathon often, but checking out the two newer princesses at least once and maybe re-watching a single favorite given the opportunity?

Post by: BillG on November 17, 2011, 03:46:08 am
Dandelion Wine, I'd like to raise two points. As to what is a Guilty Pleasure? To me it's something you feel guilty about due to the mores of the time and based on the age of the person. Gender, also. Another series I've read had an elderly lawyer confess that he'd often prefer root beer to the proper wine that he was served.
It was the cold iron and steel that endangered the fae, but that steel was in the hands of Christians. There is even a church in Bran's home town, one that seemed non-denominational. But when Mercy was challenged as a human in Uncle Mike's Tavern and told to sing, to get in there face about it she chose to sing a Christmas carol.

What about if Honey finger painted Adam's wall?  :-whistle

Or if Stephan listens to the singer "Shaggy. I was just wondering since he likes scooby-doo and shaggy and all.....If you just add that he is obsessed with anything to do with scooby-doo, even if it is a singer's name.

Would if Sam or Ben dresses up as scooby-doo for holloween?

I hope I am on the right track and am not actually posting something that is not a guilty pleasure.

I support Ben as a brony. It's also my head cannon that he's a /b/tard 4channer /i/nsurgency anyway- how else would he be able to find all those disturbing websites? Him being a brony would fit perfectly.


I could easily see a number of wolves playing WoW, Team Fortress, or Left4Dead obsessively. Maybe Warren has a love for mine craft?


IDK, maybe some of the older wolves are members of Society for Creative Anachronism?

Oh, I can totally see Adam going for Guitar Hero (hidden behind the more violent video games, of coures). Perhaps it's what he and Jesse do when they're bored :-P.

I second Darryl having a thing for cheap pizza (someone mentioned that earlier), since he's a bit of a cookery snob anyway. As a devoted cook, admitting when I like complete junk is occasionally slightly blush inducing  :-[.

Aw, I don't think Tony'd be bothered if someone found out he did that; he just wouldn't go around telling people. No, if he's going to be secretive about helping, it'd probably be that he's been helping out with Sylvia's bills when she isn't looking--he'd want to, and she'd kill him if she found out!

I really think it would be funny if Ben had a secret obsession with Star Wars and liked practicing his "skills" with a light sabor.  Or you could convert his religion to the Jedi religion.  Or he could be obsessed with Star Trek and has mastered the Klingon language.  Or better yet, Darryl could.  He's always so series.  He needs a guilty pleasure that nobody knows about to make him a bit more likable.  Plus, there are a lot of computer "geeks" out there that love Star Wars and Star Trek.  It wouldn't be to off character.  On how this is discovered, the character can have a bunch of action figures or their Star Wars light sabors could be discovered or one of the characters can say something in the Klingon language.  Just a thought.

I do kind of like the My Little Pony idea.  That's kinda funny.

Speaking of guilty pleasures... or not so guilty ones, Mercy, Kyle, Warren, and maybe Stefan, all beware! 

Per Television Tropes:  "The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, as an Affectionate Parody of black and white B-grade '50s sci-fi flicks, naturally ends with a bold white THE END, after which appears a question mark, in turn followed by the inevitable OR IS IT? and some Fauxlosophic Narration in the same intentionally bad dialogue style as the rest of the movie.

    And it just so happens that they are making a The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra 2!"

As a werewolf, furthermore, she's not very large, so it would be less frightening for the groomer.

Then, as long as we're on GUILTY pleasures, they dragoon Leah into joining them, with Bran's approval.  Wonder if he'd join in?

I could see Bran instigating
But I don't see Leah and Charles doing a friendly "Rocky Horror" singalong together.

If I were a female wolf, I don't think I'd want Leah coming anywhere near my head with scissors ...  :o

More or less what I was thinking, Lostbird; not scissors anywhere near me, nor dye, nor even combs, given what it feels like getting one combed out just from the scalp.

Ben is addicted on conspiracy sites and is a huge fan of the X-Files and has a I want to Believe poster on his wall and visits Roswell regularly!

Oh... can you imagine a werewolf sniffing around Area 52?

Marsillia is into rap music now she's awake.  >D

I believe, Ben must be a huge fan of "Sword Fish" movie.

And probably reads V For Vendetta comics.

If she's clever, how are they going to know it's her?  :-whistle

She would have to be REALLY clever. LOL

I see MaryJo as being one of those people that read's the relationship books like how to get a man in 10 days.  :D

She got the idea from Mercy (or worked out the details with Mercy), who thinks it's hilarious.  Sam also knows that the dog whistle belongs to Jesse, but he wouldn't say anything, just like he didn't give Mercy away when she was young.  No one else has been able to prove that Jesse is responsible, even though there really aren't that many reasonable suspects.

Anna Latham Cornick is still watching Bambi from Disney and has made Charles see it with her.  :D

We know from SC that Wulfe likes to edit Wikipedia pages. I assume that not only does he change the one about werewolves, but also the Wikipedia pages on fairies to annoy them. He is crazy enough to dare to annoy fae.
