Show Notes

Welcome to Season 2 Episode 28, where we cover Chapters 50-53 of The Dream Thieves! It’s Adam’s turn for learning about his life-altering mystical experience, while Blue and Gansey go out for a totally-not-romantic-let’s-never-talk-about-this drive through the Henrietta hills. Ronan has a chat with his (dead? dream?) dad, and the Gray Man gets some bad family news of his own. We compare our favorite pies and favorite paintings, Shannon covets the Lisa Frank tarot deck, and Nievita drops some seriously dark theories behind Prokopenko’s resurrection. Greenmantle says possibly the creepiest thing ever, and Shannon breaks the harsh news that fictional characters don’t know we exist.

Ravin' Girls Episode 31: Not a MacGuffin

Welcome to Season 3 Episode 31, where we cover the Prologue through Chapter 1 of Blue Lily, Lily Blue! Shannon starts off this season totally subdued and not at all excited to be covering BLLB… YAH RIGHT! We kick off the first two chapters of Blue Lily, Lily Blue reintroducing the characters, their quest, and a bottomless pit. Who really is the MacGuffin in this book? How many pages of a novel could possibly take place only in a cave? How many Deep Dive pages did Shannon have to delete about animals, and how many did Nievita delete about ghosts? Actually, I don’t think we answer any of those questions, but we do talk about the topics of crappy highschool poetry, why Sassy Adam is the Best Adam, who is Nievita’s BROTP of the Raven Cycle, how to tell a jig from a reel, how incredibly gross humans can be (SO GROSS), and reiterate, “When in doubt, always blame Niall.” If you have read Call Down The Hawk, stick around after the stinger for our new SPOILER ZONE! DEEP DIVE: Cave Systems of Appalachia (from approx. the 36:42 minute mark to 54:38, depending on your player) SPOILER ZONE: Call Down The Hawk Spoiler Discussion starts at approx. 1:34:02 CORRECTION: Nievita stated from memory that Blue Lily, Lily Blue was originally titled “The White Lily”. Maggie’s post was later found saying the title was “White Lily, Blue Lily” Subscribe at: https://link.chtbl.com/d8E86BFy or wherever you get your podcasts, and please comment, rate, or review! - - - - - Next Episodes: Unfortunately, right now we are in self-isolation and are not sure when we will be able to record and release further episodes for Season 3.

Ravin' Girls Episode 8: Babes in the Wood

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 8, where we cover Chapters 23-24 of The Raven Boys! Finally, Cabeswater! We start to feel like Maggie might be smacking us upside the head with all of the foreshadowing in this chapter, because basically the whole plot of the Raven Cycle is laid out here. Gansey shoots finger guns, Ronan claims his territory, Adam is the resident Smart Guy, and Blue finds herself inside of a tree for the first time. Physics are 100% solid in this series, Shannon walks us through the ins and outs the “science” of using EMFs in ghost hunting, and Nievita drops a truth bomb about Blue’s nickname.

Ravin' Girls Episode 10: I Noah Guy

Episode Summary: Welcome to Episode 10, where we cover Chapters 27-29 of The Raven Boys! Nievita and Shannon wander deep into the world of Ghost Stories as one of the biggest twists of the series is revealed! No, wait, it was revealed in Episode 2... our bad. We debate whether Calla is a fan of German Expressionism, where Gansey might keep his mint leaves, who is the bigger fashion disaster between Gansey and Blue, whether or not Bluesey is a “Puzzle Couple”, and somehow Nievita makes way too many D&D jokes. Yeah, I guess that’s actually something that can happen. Who knew?
