What did the Lady of the Lake mean when she said that the world needed a leader? Was that suppose to be mean that Arthur was to become leader of the world?
A leader for the world, not necessarily THE leader OF the world.
How long was the Lady of the Lake living in that lake in Manhattan?
I don't know that she was living there.
Was Anasi living in Karadigi the whole time since he banished the people from it? If not where else did he go during the 1001 years of banishment?
Anansi is a pretty common figure in African mythology. So I'm guessing he may have done some traveling. But Karadigi was his home base outside of Avalon.
Why did Anasi have to change one of the Panther Queen's children into a panther? Is it a rule that Children of Oberon have to honor their word?
Something like that. Oberon's laws can be bent but not broken. Plus a trickster prides himself on the trick. Not on lying flat out.
How exactly did Coyote get rebuilt by Xanatos if he got turned into rust by the Anubis Avatar?
Xanatos can manufacture new parts. He doesn't need the old materials to build the robot. He has the specs. And he's constantly upgrading those specs anyway. Plus the Coyote after the one Anubis/Jackal destroyed incorporates the Cauldron of Life, right?
Could Anubis really have resurrected the Emir's son if he wanted to? Would it have taken a lot of effort?
It is unclear whether he could have. The moral imperative NOT to seemed to have made it impossible.
What tribe does Fara Maku and Tea come from? Is it the same as the Oba who built Karadigi for Anasi?
How exactly could the panther queen mock Anasi if she couldn't even speak?
Fara Maku's tribes are the descendants of the Oba's tribe.
Do you really think you need to be able to speak in order to mock?
It's amazing how nothing major has changed in my life.
It's also amazing how many little things have changed.
I'm up VERY late. I generally work until midnight and then try to wind down from 12am to 2am. I try to go to bed around 2, but often I'm up until 3am or later.
All of this was time I used to spend with Norman. Beth and the kids were long asleep. Sure the cats stopped by occasionally, but Norman was my constant companion. He'd be on the floor or on his old recliner chai (the one he commandeered when Beth wouldn't let him on the new couch). I'd pet him some, but mostly it was just his presence.
Now his hair-covered blanket is off the chair. It makes it available for human seatage -- but I'm not that big a fan of humans, and in any case there are none around at those hours. So I'm just alone at my desk. Or alone on the couch. And it's just strange. And very lonely.
Erin and I walked into Larchmont yesterday. (Saw Matt Dillon, by the way.) It was weird not having Norman on the leash, our walking smile-magnet. And every dog we did see on someone else's leash kinda broke our hearts.
Beth said she's been hearing him at the back door, crying to get in. So I open the door occassionally.
We see Bassetts on tv ALL the time. Two just on the "er" episode I recorded the other night. (One on a commercial and one in the actual show.)
We can now leave chalah out on the kitchen table. Cause he's not there to swipe it.
And I can leave the front door open when I bring the groceries in from Beth's car, because he's not there to bolt out into the middle of the street.
And when the doorbell rings, he doesn't bark and howl like a lunatic.
But mostly, he's not waiting in the living room window when we get home anymore.
No. Mostly, he's just not there on his chair at night.
It's the little things. Not the big things. There are no big things, frankly. Our lives haven't changed. (Less pooper-scooping, I suppose, but I'd be lying if I said we missed that.) School, work, etc. Life goes on, of course.
Nothing has changed.
But nothing is quite the same either.
I really miss my dog.
Our Basset Hound, Norman, died today. Beth and I were with him as he was put to sleep.
He had lymphoma, which came on quickly and was only discovered while he was recuperating (or rather failing to recuperate) from his last ear surgery. He was completely deaf and nearly blind. He couldn't eat, couldn't drink, couldn't walk or even stand. I carried him out to the yard -- which only a few weeks ago would have been impossible, but he's lost so much weight that it was depressingly easy -- but he couldn't even go to the bathroom. His stomach was hard as a rock. He was having a lot of trouble breathing. He had stopped barking and howling completely. He could barely wag his tail.
So it was time. But it was very hard.
He was truly a joy of a dog. And dashingly handsome. I'm really going to miss him.
After Samson's rebellion against the space-spawn did you have plans to deal with the Illuminati's backing of the space-spawn and its consequences?
Is Renard a member of the Illuminati?
Is MacBeth or any of aliases a member of the Illuminati?
Is Owen a member of the Illuminati?
Is Anastasia Renard a member of the Illuminati?
Is Vinnie a member of the Illuminati?
Were Jason, Robyn or Jon members of the Illuminati?
The Illuminati is a SECRET society.
Are the pendanat wearers in The Green a cross section of gargoyles in the guatemala clan or were there other weird looking gargoyles there before the massacre?
Were there gargoyle beasts in the Guatemala clan?
I'm not sure how you're defining "weird looking". I assume you mean Zafiro and his snake-like lower body. In which case, yes, there were others like Zafiro.
There were also gargoyle beasts.
Why is New Camelot established in Antarctica?
How does the Master Matrix compensate for the six months of day and six months of night and the inhospitable weather?
I'm not telling.
Did you have more plans to introduce more international heroes such as Cuchullain, the Werepanthers, the Golem, Arthur Pendragon and Natsilane? If so mind sharing with us some of your ideas for additional heroes?
Eventually, yes. Many more. But no, I'm not going to share right now.
What does the X in Coyote stand for? The variable? The roman numeral? I'm not trying to be annoying, but this has become an issue since the X in Weapon X has turned out to be the roman numeral ten instead of the variable.
Neither. It's a place holder.
Are the Weird Sisters older than Oberon? How about Titania, Odin or the Banshee?
I'm not going to tie my hands by revealing this stuff now. They're all pretty darn old.
How old are Anasi, Puck, Raven and Coyote? Which one is older? Which one is the youngest? Who is the second oldest and the second youngest of the four?
I haven't given this any thought. I'd probably have to do research to figure this out.
Have we meet Oberon and Titania's two kids? If not have you mentioned their names in askgreg?
We have not met them yet, and as far as I recall I have not mentioned them yet.
Who is oberon's father?
Who are Titania's parents?
Who are Puck's parents?
I know the answers to some but not all of these questions. But even the ones I know the answers for I don't feel like revealing right now.
Why are the space-spawn winning the war when the N'kai are older?
How old is this galactic war?
Older than Nokkar?
Old, by human standards.
What kind of government do the N'kai have? A Democracy? A dictatorship?
What about the space-spawn and this third race?
The closest Earth-equivalent to the Space-Spawn's government is a militocracy.
I'm intentionally not revealing anything about the N'kai or the other alien race.
Are Sentinels considered part of the N'ka military?
If so what other positions are there in the N'Kai military?
I haven't worked out all the details yet.
What is the lifespan of a member of this third race in this galactic war?
If you can't tell us then what is it compared to the lifespan of a gargoyles or human? Is it greater or less?
I'm not telling.
How many major powers are there in the galaxy? Are the space-spawn, N'kai and this third race considered major powers in the galaxy?
2) Yes. (Keep in mind that the third alien race should not be confused with "The Third Race" a.k.a. Oberon's Children.)
