1. What were your initial reactions to the first three chapters of BoR?

SCREAMS OF JOY! I JUMPED OUT OF MY SEAT!

2. What moments, if any, surprised you the most?

Basil going to therapy

3. Feelings and theories about Rosie?

A sweetie pie that wants to be successful but is struggling with her self. And a queen of wit

4. Thoughts on the Court of Eraywyn? Who’s excited about Princess Astra?

I have ideas.

5. THAT CLIFFHANGER THO???

RIGHT???

6. Any thoughts on confirmed and potential friendships and relationships? Y’all know I am a massive Vera / Jasper shipper :pleading_face: but I’m also loving Parsley’s Basil’s and Vera’s developing friendship?

AHHHHHHHHHHSHFHEJSJDJJSHDKSJDJSKSKSK

And finally,

CONTAINS SPOILERS!

Theories
  • Unlikely: Basil and Rosie get married, Basil qualifies as a prince and RB citizens wake up.
  • Somewhat likely: Alys volunteers and RB citizens wake up
  • Likely: Carabosse hints at a possible way to wake up the citizens without having to kiss and marry a prince and that route takes place. We will have to discover it on the way.
  • Unlikely, but cute: BasilxAstra, their personalities work well together. Neither take shit from one another.
  • Extremely likely: RosiexBasil. Because why not?
  • The Eraywynian King and Queen are staging a battle and defeating the Vera from within. The attack on Astra is planned by the two so that they have a reason to start a war.

OK discourse forum, thanks for MESSING UP MY POLL FOR NO REASON

My fave theory: Rosie and trips and accidentally kisses Basil and he ends up getting the curse transferred to him and has to work out his trauma in the nightmare world while Rosie finds a prince (maybe Alys, maybe Basil’s magical sword who knows) to lift the enchantment

YEEEES, I WAS WAITING FOR THIS THREAD

LETS START WITH THE QUESTIONS

Answers

I LOVE IT!!! I REALLY LOVED ROSIE, SHE IS SO RELATABLE :pleading_face:

ALSO SHE IS BABY, LOOKING FORWARD TO THE ADVENTURE

I literally cried when Sardine showed up, he misses his Blair :pleading_face:

I love her :pleading_face: also, something tells me that somehow it was intended for her to wake up when she did, because her nightmare language is today’s language, so maybe she was meant to live in this time :thinking: just a thought

I’m too gay to handle Astra, sorry Alys and Hunter, she got the throne :weary::weary::weary::weary:

DON’T EVEN TELL ME, I WANT THEM TO MEET SO BAD, I NEED TO SEE THEIR RELATIONSHIP BUILDING

Hskdvhznsbsjsbsbjabsjs IT’S EXACTLY THE I-GOT-YOUR-BACK FRIENDSHIP THAT I WAS HOPING FOR, THERE WON’T BE ANY MASSACRES ON OUR GENERAL’S WATCH He might just accept it the title

I’m leaning towards daydream because Rosie is now my adopted daughter and I can’t let her suffer, sorry
The ragemeter is quite low because I had a feeling repling to the king with sarcasm would be the best, but I didn’t want to risk it, so Thyme bottled it up 🤷

Is Astra the book 6 MC? :eyes:
I have a feeling because we know of the book 6 ship and she and her fiancee might fit in :eyes:

Also, have a dumb meme, my treat

1. What were your initial reactions to the first three chapters of BoR?

Can’t even describe how much these chapters made (and saved) my day :pleading_face:.

2. What moments, if any, surprised you the most?

Okay, I lowkey didn’t expect Hunter to go all spiderman. This boy has some serious skills and now I’m constantly debating whether Angry Oregano or Gemini-Cakeman would win in a fight against each other?? (<— Of course theoretically)

3. Feelings and theories about Rosie?
Love her already, she’s precious and must be protected at all costs.

4. Thoughts on the Court of Eraywyn? Who’s excited about Princess Astra?

Oh Elements, Astra and her brother have my deepest empathy for having to deal with this sort of parents. And Astra seems like a great character so far, there might be potential for her to become my favourite female character - but let’s see how her character develops.

5. THAT CLIFFHANGER THO???

:weary:

6. Any thoughts on confirmed and potential friendships and relationships? Y’all know I am a massive Vera / Jasper shipper :pleading_face: but I’m also loving Parsley’s Basil’s and Vera’s developing friendship?

Vesper all the way.
A friendship between Basil and Astra would be nice and I shipped BasilxRosie before the publication of book 2 and I will go down with this ship :smirk:.

7. How’s your point breakdown? What are you leading with for Rosie? Daydream or Nightmare points? How’s Basil’s Rage Meter?

Due to my 2 save files, I’m taking different routes in each.
Save file 1) Emotionally controlled Basil + Daydream Rosie
Save file 2) Very angry Basil + Nightmare Rosie

There is going to be SO MANY WITTY COMMENTS I’m very eager

I didn’t see the breaking off the alliance I mean I expect they wouldn’t be happy about Jasper but I didn’t expect them to go a full on no lol bye

We are essentially the same person expect I’m way for awkward about it

Djsjsb Astra is cool I like her I’m not shipping her but she seems like she could be a awesome friend to Vera

RIGHT??? Blade starting a convo first :eyes:

I hope for a Vera Astra friendship they seem like a great match
I’m already a OTP Rosie X Parsley shipper you can’t stop me

My rage meter is low I was sad I didn’t get sarcasm rjsidnn
I’m more on the nightmare scale but my day dream points are catching up so we’ll see

HUNTER WANTS A BAKERY BIG AWEEE MOMENT IF THAT DOESNT HAPPEN IM FREAKING DJIWJSNS HUNTER CHEF BOY SPOON GANG
SPOON BOY GETS DOUGH
THANK YOU

Oh my goodness!! I’ve been checking the author’s profile to see when the next book would be out. I loved the first book so so much and I know I’m gonna enjoy this one too.
Ok bye I’m going to read the second book now!

Also, my favorite theory in the moment is that they need Alys to break the curse, but he is locked away somewhere, so they’ll need to break him out

Also, they’ll need Hunter, but maybe getting Hunter back to Eraywyn won’t be a good aidea

:scream::pleading_face::heart::lips::heart::sob::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Honestly just how sassy she is! She says all this dark stuff with a smile and I loved it. :relieved:
Rosie has big Yarha energy.

:pleading_face:
When she was crying into the menu - :sob::sob::sob:

I’m also curious: Is her world subtitled? Has Caraboss cast some sort of spell to help Rosie get around? She can understand while speaking to people just fine because it’s written in a language she can read, but the magic doesn’t work for signage and stuff.

I don’t like the King and Queen. They are scheming and it makes me suspicious. :thinking:

I have been waiting for Astra!

:pleading_face::sob:

I’m loving Basil and Vera’s friendship. :pleading_face:
I can’t wait to see how Basil and Rosie interact.

12 nightmare points.
Rage bar very low. I got some major customer service vibes from the situations he was in so I acted accordingly.

Daggerheart playthrough though: :eyes:

I’m sad about Jasper being sad. :sob:

Nothing yet, but I’m sure I’ll be raving along with everyone else. How else are we going to get a 2nd thread to 6.8K+ reads? :relieved:

Also, new story means a new nickname:

1. What were your initial reactions to the first three chapters of BoR?

Rosie is too bright for me!

2. What moments, if any, surprised you the most?

I am surprised that I held Basil back with King and Queen of Erawyin

3. Feelings and theories about Rosie?

It’s funny that she is even clumsier than I thought but can be sarcastic too

4. Thoughts on the Court of Eraywyn? Who’s excited about Princess Astra?

Evil spawn, I can’t even understand how our outgoing and independent Astra was born from those two, Astra, you deserve all my love!!!

5. THAT CLIFFHANGER THO???
I can survive, eheh

6. Any thoughts on confirmed and potential friendships and relationships? Y’all know I am a massive Vera / Jasper shipper :pleading_face: but I’m also loving Parsley’s Basil’s and Vera’s developing friendship?

I loved them all, Vera defending Jasper, goals!

7. How’s your point breakdown? What are you leading with for Rosie? Daydream or Nightmare points? How’s Basil’s Rage Meter?
