I'm actually gonna listen through all my pre-retribution retribution fanmixes on 8tracks to see how wrong (or right) i got the feel of the book in them LOL I'll end up making a post-reading retribution fanmix soon probably


message 7: by Tamara (new)

Tamara Obradović (tamaressa) Omg I just now hit me that it's over, like over over...
The ending felt a little meh, like it was just put there but I loved the happy end nonetheless.
I still don't understand what the deal with the watch was. And what about Stella? And what about Jamie? Im not particuarly okay with the open ending but I'm more than fine with all of them alive.
I desperatly need fanfiction.


message 8: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) I'm glad I'm not the only one with those questions left. I'm also kinda disappointed we still don't know her real name.
But Michelle said on tumblr she has two other projects, hopefully something like short stories about Stella and Jamie?


message 9: by Tamara (new)

Tamara Obradović (tamaressa) I cry every fucking 30 minutes bc im not okay that it's over


message 10: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) I want to reread it but I'm afraid I'm gonna cry


message 11: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) Cry even more, I meant ,)


message 12: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) Also, guys, this was on Michelle's tumblr too. But I still have no clue... Anyone?

4ever-fangirling asked:
Hi Michelle I was just wondering what the Mara Dyer fandom is called? PS I want to thank you because it was your books that really got me into reading and for that I am so thankful!

Answer:
I’ve heard a lot of names, but I think there’s a chance you might rally around one in particular after tomorrow…

Nicole Melo (nicolejmelo) | 11 comments okay so since only the people who read the book are here, can someone explain clearly the whole twin thing with Kells?

Marashawers? I would like to know as well...


message 15: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Melo (nicolejmelo) | 11 comments Or Shadows?


message 16: by Tamara (new)

Tamara Obradović (tamaressa) I'm so unbelievably sad that it's over but then Michelle has TWO new projects and we have to figure out our fandom name. . .
but I like the though of us being the shadow fandom oooooooh

I didn't really understand the Kells thing either... someone please halp


message 18: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) Shadows seems accurate.

So Kells has like a million miscarriages. Then she finds out she is a carrier of G1821, the mysterious gene. She blames the miscarriages on the gene. She wants to find a cure to the gene, so she collaborates with a pharmacologist. The drugs they invented, didn't work on her though. So she fostered kids, to try the drugs on them. She always fosters pairs of twins, Jude and Claire being the fifth pair. As those kids generally were no carriers of the gene, Kells probably injected it or something (Mara didn't know either how she did it specifically). Kells protected the kids of being found by changing their name.


message 19: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) And now there's something I'm wondering. Kells' was a carrier, so her parent must've been manifested. Kells' child would probably be manifested too, right? Just like Mara. The manifestations were connected to Jung's Archetypes. As there are only 6 Archetypes, that'd mean there'd be only 6 "infected" families? Are there any hints to what Archetype Kells' family belonged to?

That was my other (and favorite) thought.


message 22: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Melo (nicolejmelo) | 11 comments By the way, not to seem apocalyptic or anything but what's gonna happen to this book club? We should turn it into like a book club or something! (just a thought)

Well im not going to delete it or anything, people can still come here to discuss it months or years or whenever they want to haha. I did start a seperate book club a few years ago with my bestfriend (its called Madness Bookclub: https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/...) but Im kind of terrible at managing bookclubs so it hasn't been really used or anything haha I am thinking about starting that back up, i made new banners and an icon for it a couple weeks ago

edit: although it started out as like a private bookclub for just the two of us to keep track of the books we read together haha but people asked to join it so, idk i think i will Reboot it so itll be an actual bookclub sometime cause I want this one to stay just for the mara dyer trilogy haha


message 24: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Melo (nicolejmelo) | 11 comments I also have a book club which never really came together so if anyone wants to join just let me know! :)

Hmmm I haven't researched up the archetypes yet, so im not entirely sure, but It could have been one her parents who was manifested, but maybe she had a brother or sister who was manifested? There wasn't any clear reason why she wasn't


message 26: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) I'd love to be active in a book club, but I still have to get reading glasses so I can't read that much right now :(
Still sent a request though.

i hope you get your reading glasses soon!


message 28: by Nicole (new)

Nicole Melo (nicolejmelo) | 11 comments By the way, since we are here (in a Mara Dyer book club) Must we talk about the Noah and Mara sex scene? OKAY. I WAS NOT EXPECTING IT ALRIGHT I MEAN I SORTA WAS BUT BRUH


message 29: by Dianna (new)

Dianna | 6 comments Wow. I agree, Michelle is definitely diabolical. I was all over the place reading this. And can I just say how glad I am that both Noah and Mara were "too selfish" to let each other go? Still, I want to know about Jamie and Stella. And what's that about Mara not making her decision yet?

I KNOW I AM SO GLAD THEY DIDNT LET EACH OTHER GO, I was afraid for a second there that Mara was going to. I would like to know what Mara decided about the pendant tho. And it would have been nice to see Stella again before the end. Overall though I was pretty satisfied with how it ended, especially the last sentence, it came full circle and iT JUST MAKES ME SO EMOTIONAL


message 31: by Dianna (new)

Dianna | 6 comments I always referred to the fandom as M.A.D.N.E.S.S, but now "psychotic demon nightmare" sounds pretty good

I thought Mara was going to leave him too. Also when Mara woke up and he left the note saying he went for a run, I thought he left her (mini-heartattack) I NEED A SHORT STORY IN WHICH MARA AND NOAH GET MARRIED AND HAVE LITTLE DIABOLICAL CHILDREN


message 33: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherineherondalex) Noooo they need the cutest kids ever. I mean, they are partly Noah.


message 34: by Tamara (new)
