What story was Peter in with a sword?  I honestly don't remember that part.

Iron Kissed, when the Fideal was chasing Mercy & she led him to Adam's house, Peter came out with his sword and waded into the river after Adam if I recall correctly.

Yup - The section starts around p. 193. Peter went into the water after the fight. He stayed human and used a sword, he was supposed to remove Jesse if needed, and went out when Mercy changed his orders. He went into the water after Adam who had followed Fideal at the end.

Just finished re-reading and passed the book off to Labmate, and it seems to me we haven't yet addressed the most pressing question of the entire story:

What DOES quicquidlibet mean?

Quicquidlibet is a noun pronounced as /quick'ki'd•lee'bet/ and consists of the classical Latin word 'quicquid libet, quodlibet'  or 'quicquid, quidquid' for 'whatever,' which can also be a reduplication of 'quid' for 'anything' and 'libet' for 'it pleases.'  It means one who does whatever one pleases, anything whatsoever.


"You are such a quicquidlibet, you...you overgrown hippo," declared the little dwarf to the ancient Ent.

"A multimonstrous maufrey of heteroclytes and quicquidlibets." --- N. Ward, Simple Cobler Aggawam

Now, if I can pronounce it, I need to start using it in conversation.  LOL

When I Googled the definition, all I could think of was using it in the phrase "whatever, whatever, I do what I want."

"Quicquidlibet, I do what I want"

Yes, I must find the venue to drop this word.

It will take me from my current favorite word, quixotic, but it must be done.

It took me a while to find a definition of that word (the first couple of online dictionaries I tried didn't have it!), but once I found it, I wondered if it had been used to describe Mercy and her coyote-like qualities!

OK, anyone have any ideas about what happened to Uncle Mike's bar?  I bet not even some 'weak' half fae would have been allowed to keep it open and it got abandoned... maybe some rough bikers (no, I know there's lots of good guys who ride bikes) but some bad-news types took it over and man are they going to be sorry when Uncle Mike gets back!!!   >D

Interesting thoughts. Uncle Mike's was for the Fae not for the tourists. With all the big Fae on the reservation, there probably isn't much business for a place like Uncle Mikes, unless a werewolf or a vampire takes over. I wonder what happened to the tourist bars where the Fae once worked?
