So, in the book it is this big mysterious thing that certain people only get tiny glimpses into, and there are so few people who can do it (and their abilities so negatively looked on) that there's very little research or knowledge about it. They know they can do these things, but not really why. But the more specific explanation is that there are these two worlds that are essentially right next to each other with some overlap (which is why ghosts can be in the living world and things like that). Because of that overlap, what happens is on very rare occasions someone will be born into both worlds at once. People like Maaya and Adelaide.

It's a very lopsided ratio; that is, only a very tiny sliver of them is in the other world. But the more a person is a part of the other world, the more they can do. People who are very powerful with libris, for example, are more a part of it than someone who only gets strange feelings when ghosts are around. Unfortunately the characters themselves don't know any of this, but... maybe someday! They are changing the world for the better after all.

As for a playlist, I don't usually have many, but here are the main ones for GW.

1) I Know A Place, by Muna
2) Key of the Twilight, by Yuki Kajiura
3) The Host of Seraphim, by Dead Can Dance(less)

Plus there's just so much that would be genuinely fun to come back to. TDS five years later, origin stories for Maaya and Adelaide, all sorts of things. I don't know if it's worth the actual publishing process, though, like all the editing, the cover art, etc. Only trouble is I'm not sure what the alternative would be. I might try to figure that out. Though I should also really be working on new things, too. 😅(less)

I really liked this. I think. Maybe I should mull this over for a bit because this book just pulled me all sorts of different ways. The plot took a while to get going, but it was intense, even if the writing kind of dulled it sometimes. I really like ...more

This was such a lovely feel-good story. It left me feeling all warm and fuzzy and happy. And it's about chocolate! It's cozy and surprisingly emotional, but all in a good way. It has the satisfying happy ending that I absolutely adore.

“For all the experiences she had, for all the knowledge she had accumulated over the years, she was back to feeling as though she knew nothing at all. She was a stranger in a strange world, one so infinite and broad in scope that it likely didn't even realize, or care, that she existed.”

“I’m so glad," Maaya exclaimed. “It looks like there should be plenty of room for Adelaide and I to hide behind you whenever a pulse comes up."
"Indeed. Just stay behind me, fair maidens, and I will protect you," Saber said valiantly.
"That didn’t take long to go to your head,” Maaya snorted.
"My head is literally the source of your salvation, what did you expect?”

“It was the wanderers Maaya pitied. They were the ones who had been dead for so long that they had lost almost all their humanity. Death had ever so slowly driven them mad, trapping them in the in-between they could exist in but not interact with, the place where they could see and hear all that couldn’t see or hear them. Many spoke in languages long dead, if they remembered how to speak at all. In a world full of people, they were utterly alone, and over the centuries and millennia, they became numb to it all.”
Kay Solo, Ghost Walk

“It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Diary

“I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn't learn something from him.”
Galileo Galilei

“Every now and then, I'll run into someone who claims not to like chocolate, and while we live in a country where everyone has the right to eat what they want, I want to say for the record that I don't trust these people, that I think something is wrong with them, and that they're probably - and this must be said - total duds in bed.”
Steve Almond, Candyfreak: A Journey Through the Chocolate Underbelly of America

“Always go to other people's funerals, otherwise they won't come to yours.”

“People who claim that they're evil are usually no worse than the rest of us... It's people who claim that they're good, or any way better than the rest of us, that you have to be wary of.”
