*ratherbereading* Ok, we can talk about countdown ideas here. I like your 5 so far. So we'll keep those. I'll go brainstorm and come back in a while with some more.


*ratherbereading* Actually, how bout we do it this way. You come up with ten(so five more including the five you have already) and then I'll pick my favorite 5 out of your ten and we'll use those. Then I'll Come up with ten and you'll choose your favorite 5 from my ten. Then we'll do it again, (you coming up with ten and me choosing 5 of them then me coming up with another ten and you choosing 5 of them) That way we'll have each come up with 20 questions for a total of 40 questions, but we'll only be using 20 of them. I think this is good because we'll be able to really wring out the juices of keeper and our brains to get the BEST possible questions for our 20 day countdown. It will be hard! But we are both very familiar with the books(at least I hope we are considering what keeper geeks we are) so it should be ok. I'll be waiting for your remaining 5! WooHoo!!!

Sure! I'll get started on that tomorrow! I am currently a sleep-deprived teenager who still hasn't finished her homework. *sighs* I really wish I was home schooled sometimes :)

My parents wouldn't make me have to stay up until midnight finishing my homework and wake up at 6 for dance practice *sighs dreamily*

*almost falls asleep*

"I'm awake! I'm awake!" *looks around wildly*

1 more day to go: What are some ships you think will sail/not sail? Why?

2 more days to go: What will the preface have in it?

3 more days to go: Why do you think Chapter 71 is significant?

4 more days: Do you think there will be major character development in Nightfall?

5 days: Tam and Linh are part of the main "friend group" but arrived later in the books. Do you think some people in Nightfall will be introduced into their friend group? If so, is it possible for them to become a rival love interest for any of the ships--especially Sophie's?

6: What do you think will happen in the first chapter? (What is going to happen with Amy and when will Nightfall start in respect to Lodestar's ending?)

7: Will Amy become a love interest? If so, to who? (EX: Keefe, Dex, Rex, Lex, Jensi)

8: What is Fitz's secret password to get into Sophie's head? Do you think it'll be revealed in Nightfall?

9: What will Fitz ask for his favor from Sophie? If Sophie tells Fitz about her crush on him, how will Fitz react?

10: How old are Sophie, Fitz, Keefe, Biana, Dex, Tam, and Linh at this point?

I'll create my next 10 after we both pick our favorite five :)


*ratherbereading* Yay!!!! Those are all really good! I like 2,3,5,6, and 8!

Here are my 10. :)

1: What are your favorite keeper books in order ( even thought they're all amazing) from greatest to least? (Ex: 51324)

2: In the summary of Nightfall we hear about Sophie striking a " dangerous bargain" to get to the door in Keefe's memory. Who is this dangerous bargain struck with? And what is the dangerous bargain?

3: In Neverseen during Sophie and Fitz's Cognate training, Sophie sees Fitz is Jealous over something while they're training in the emotional center of each other's minds. Do you think we'll learn what Fitz was jealous of in Nightfall? What do you think Mr. Forkle did/said to him to trigger Jealousy?

4: What do you think is happening in the scene on the cover of Nightfall?

5: What is your opinion on Shannon having Brant die?

6: What do you think of the new enemy Shannon has introduced? ( See page 665 of Lodestar) Who do you think he might be?

7: What do you think Mr. Forkle's final ability is?

8: Shannon has implied that her goal is to get all her characters sleeping with stuffed animals. Who do you think will be the next to get one? What species would you make it if you were her?

9: What is the one thing you wish there could be more of in Nightfall that there wasn't in Lodestar?

10: What is your theory on the word Criterion and why Fintan was having Keefe choose the people he would save out of a city during their training? Are the two related?

Amazing questions! Can we keep all of yours? I really need to refresh my mind on Keeper :)


*ratherbereading* Uh... Sure! Just out of curiosity, What would be the five you would have chosen?

Ok! Now you just make your next ten and then ill chose five and we'll be all set to begin the Nightfall countdown October 19!!! ( I think ) :)

2, 3, 4, 6, 10 -- all the theories :)

Can you explain #7? What final ability are you referring to? Is it his final disguise(s)?

1) Who do you think Sophie's parents are? Mr. Forkle once said that if Sophie found out who her parents were, it would trigger a chain reaction that could possibly lead to the world's destruction. What is your reaction to/prediction for this? Mr. Forkle also told Sophie that Kenric wasn't her father. Do you think he was telling the truth? If not, why?

(More to come, but it's 11:45 PM--I have to sleep :)


*ratherbereading* Interesting...

Major oops. Yeah, I meant identity not ability. This relates the whole thing with him giving Sophie the wanderling seed, and then Oralie saying his last identity could be a final secret they could share together.

Ok! I can't wait!

2) Who will make a move? In Lodestar, it has become very clear that Fitz and Keefe seem to be "competing" to win Sophie's heart. Fitz, in general, seems more passive than Keefe, but that may change. Keefe, on the other hand, seems to have been plotting his "big move" from the moment he met Sophie. Who do you think will make the first move? Why do you think _____ should make the next move?
Note: Include who you ship!

3) Make a rhyme for what you think/want to happen in Nightfall!

4) Do you think anyone will get a serious injury/die in Nightfall? (J.K. Rowling gave everyone a big shock in the seventh book of Harry Potter all the tragedies)

5) Is there any possibility that Kenric is alive? Is there a possibility that Kenric is part of the Neverseen (whether it be by choice or by force)?


26 more days!

6) Will Sophie ever see her human parents again?

Emily (emilyswiss) | 9 comments *Ramya* wrote: "6) Will Sophie ever see her human parents again?"

Yes, I'm sure she will. Right now, I think we are assuming that the Neverseen has taken her human family and she is going to go find them.
These questions are so cool! They are probably rhetorical but whatever :)

SO EXCITED


*ratherbereading* We haven't started the countdown yet! This is just a place for me and Ramya to discuss our questions BEFORE we announce them to the rest of the group! Hence the whole Moderators only title... Come back October 19th on a new thread that I will create for answering these questions. :)

Everything in one place (9 and 10 coming soon)!

1) Who do you think Sophie's parents are? Mr. Forkle once said that if Sophie found out who her parents were, it would trigger a chain reaction that could possibly lead to the world's destruction. What is your reaction to/prediction for this? Mr. Forkle also told Sophie that Kenric wasn't her father. Do you think he was telling the truth? If not, why?

Should we add two options for some of the days counting down to Nightfall? That way, questions won't go to waste and you can create more questions if you would like to! :)


message 23: by *ratherbereading* (last edited Oct 15, 2017 04:56PM) (new)

*ratherbereading* That's a great idea! We'll do two questions a day so we use all the questions we've made. Ok, I made 10 more and added them to the rest of them and randomized them. My new 10 are in italics. So here's the lay out:

Question 2: Do you think Amy will end up living in the Lost Cities at one point because of amnesia? Do you think she'll turn elf somehow? ( I tweaked this one. You had it saying Sophie moved to lost cities and turning human and I didn't think that sounded right. Is this what you meant? )


7 days to go: Question 1: Who will make a move? In Lodestar, it has become very clear that Fitz and Keefe seem to be "competing" to win Sophie's heart.

*ratherbereading* Huh... Well not much we can do now I guess. So, do you have the two questions we are going to do tomorrow? I started a thread for it. How about we rotate. You take 20(or 19 I guess :I) and I'll take the next day and you take the next and I'll take the next and so on. So you do Thursday, I'll do Friday, You do Saturday, and so on. The lay out is above.

Hi! Sorry I've been gone for so long :) Do you think we should brainstorm some new activities for everyone? Let me know what you think!


*ratherbereading* My, my. We have been gone long. I read back through the thread above and... that all feels like a different life! Kinda sad. I'm sure you've done all kinds of growing up since 2017. :(


Honestly... I'm completely at a loss as to how to continue/come up with something new. The only thing I can think of is maybe getting back on some of the old threads/activities we did and reigniting the conversations? What do you think.


It feels so weird to get back on this group page and read the conversations everyone had. We were all so obsessed with this series--it was all-consuming! Now, I just can appreciate how much it meant to me throughout the latter years of my childhood, and feel sad over how much more complicated my life is now. Lol, nows not the time for a sob story. But it's good to hear from you again. :)

Very true - it feels kinda weird looking back at all our conversations, and I think that we all definitely have grown up, if some of the others start commenting again, we can pick up from there. If not, we can just start challenges arbitrarily, especially when the next book comes out, if you would like :)

It was great to hear from you again! I can't believe that 3 years have already passed...I'm 15 now.

The charm that KOTLC once had on me has diminished, but I still love the series and am super happy that Sophitz is finally happening :) What about you?
