Have I talked at all about what they are about? It's a tedious, obvious prophecy slowly winding its way toward completion. An intolerable boy, who, surprise, surprise, doesn't understand girls, or humans, or anything, a bunch of princes and stuff, lots of noblesse oblige, good and evil, pomp and circumstance, all of the wise characters are total assholes, all the good guys are obsessed with murder and stealing but it's okay because it's only bad guys that they do it to, human concern lasts only as long as it's plot-important, ugh. I don't know, I also have this problem where it seems like one long nightmare. I remember when I was in third or fourth grade and I had an incredibly detailed and complicated dream about a boy who became king and had to fight all of the goblins and then when I woke up I wrote it down. That's what this series is like. Also, can we get a little fucking? I mean, seriously.
