Ask Me Anything!

Since my live chat with Mundie Moms tonight had to be canceled and rescheduled for next month, I thought I'd open the comments of this post to questions.

You can Officially Ask Me Anything! I will answer all your spoilery little details about the PARANORMALCY series! Tonight (Thursday, August 30th) ONLY.

So, here is the warning:

IF YOU HAVE NOT READ ALL THREE BOOKS IN THE SERIES, DO NOT OPEN THE COMMENTS OF THIS POST. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS. YOU WILL BE SPOILED. AND UNLIKE SMALL CHILDREN, YOU WILL HAVE NO EXCUSE FOR BEING SPOILED.

Have at it!

Are Vivian and Reth "happily-ever-aftering" on the other side of the gate?

Kiersten White said...

HA! Awesome question. You know, I think Vivian gleefully remains a thorn in the side of the faeries. Not actively destructive, but annoying whenever she can be. So no. I don't imagine she and Reth get together.

Victoria said...

Is Lend no longer immortal?

ashley said...

How much do you love when people say this series has a love triangle?

Kiersten White said...

Victoria--He is not immortal, no. He will age and eventually die.

Kiersten White said...

Ashley--I think people cry "triangle!" any time there is more than one Attractive Male Character. And that's okay! There is nothing wrong with triangles. I never considered it a triangle myself, but it doesn't bother me. If people want to be Team Reth, more power to them! He was one of my favorite characters to write.

Will the Jacques Home Hairstyle Manual be available anytime soon?

My mother-in-law's beard could do with a makeover.

Kiersten White said...

Due to ongoing litigation over rights, the manual is on hold indefinitely.

Ava said...

Hi Kiersten!

Well, you ended the series so beautifully that I don't...I don't really have anything to ask! So, um...

Do Evie and Lend have watery, blond-haired babies and frolic in unicorn-free meadows? :D

We <3 you! Thank you so much for this series!
- Ava

Rebecca Gorham said...

No idea if you have an answer for this or not, but do Lend and Evie have kids? Because he would be an adorable daddy.

Sarah Hudson said...

Also, um, that was my comment up above. I used my mom's account accidentally. Sorry about that!

Whirlochre said...

OK — I'll hold out for Evie-themed shears. Or a Lend lawnmower 'n' tweezer set.

Sarah Hudson said...

Aaaand ... I just saw that someone else asked basically the same question. I will stop commenting now and end with ...

The end of the series was bleeping perfect. I cannot wait for Mind Games.

Kiersten White said...

Ava--Umm. Well. While I *do* believe that Evie and Lend stay together forever, they are both, shall we say, hybrids? They end up adopting after graduating from college, marrying, and helping with the massive reorganization of the new IPCA.

Or at least that's how it goes in my head. You are welcome to do ANYTHING with them post-books!

Kiersten White said...

Sarah--Don't apologize! They adopt : ) Probably two kids.

Ava said...

Oh! I love that they adopt! Thank you, Kiersten! I've wondered ever since I finished Endlessly...

(Also. Um, yeah. Hybrids. Kinda slipped my mind. Awkward.)

<3,
- Ava

Amanda Morganne said...

Does Reth get a happily ever after, does he find someone to love? Or was it even really love?

Kiersten White said...

I don't think Reth needs love, not the way we do, and certainly not in the eternal realm he went to. That's why Evie wouldn't have been happy there. The idea of chilling out, existing and being all floaty and beautiful for eternity would have bored her out of her mind : )

I picture him serene and occasionally bemused at the odd memories of his time with Evie and the horrible things the mortal world made him feel.

Llana said...

Hey
I know this for Spoiler questions on Evie and Lend and Co but you maybe tell us one teeny tiny thing about Mind Games?Ever since

Anonymous said...

Hey, Kiersten! I love your series! So, what's going on with Ariana on the other side? Is Viv keeping her company?
-ally :)

Kiersten White said...

Llana--Sure! Let's see. I originally intended it to be a story about an impossible relationship--one doomed to be heartbreaking. THEN it quickly became a story about sisters. So, still an impossible, heartbreaking relationship--just not a romantic one anymore : ) That'd be a very different type of book...

It's dual POV, and also jumps around time in a non-linear way. This allowed me to be very sneaky with detail placement/reveals, and was super challenging to write but really fun!

Kiersten White said...

Anon/Ally--Yes! I do picture Arianna and Viv palling around in the immortal realm, causing mischief, but both very happy and settled in a way they never were in the mortal world.

Kaela Rollins said...

What are the colors for the winter formal?

Kiersten White said...

Alas. Navy and silver. Evie didn't win that fight.

Ashes of Fairy said...

Hi Mrs. White! The only questions I have that haven't been asked are: what species stayed behind? I remember the trolls, vamps, and werewolves. But who else? And how safe would you say the world is, comparatively speaking? Oh, and perhaps what happens to Raquel and Lend's dad? Do THEY have children or some such? Sorry for all this! >.<

Kiersten White said...

Don't be sorry, Ashes of Fairy! That's what this post is for!

Trolls stayed behind, as did all vampires and werewolves. Some of the species that had gone more feral did as well. I'm guessing a Sasquatch or two, probably a colony of abominable snowmen. In the end, there's still magic in their world, just the magic that more-or-less belongs there now. As far as safety, well...there's a reason IPCA needed to be reformed and still functional : )

Raquel and David eloped to Vegas. (Just kidding. I'm not sure. But they stay together, I think, and don't have any kids, but help place all the new Empty Ones born into good homes.)

Ashes of Fairy said...

Thank you so much! :D And, um, I'm so so sorry, but um you have reminded me about the new Empty Ones. D: May I ask another question like the spoiled child I am? If no don't read on! Are they more like Evie or Viv? Are they drawn to take souls or are they repelled by the idea? SORRY I AM REALLY DONE NOW. :X You are a cool cat, Ma'am.

Makayla Anderson said...

Hey Kiersten, its only 10:30 pm here in MN so i'm not sure if youre still doing this but, on a scale of 1(low) to 10(high), what is the possibility of a movie?

kallikat said...

what happened to Evies one friend ( sorry i forgot her name) and jack?

Kiersten White said...

Ashes--No worries!

Remember the pregnant girls Evie rescued from the Faerie Realms? They were pretty much never going to recover, so the babies they had would need homes. As far as who those new Empty Ones would be like, definitely Evie because they'd all be put into loving homes : )

Kiersten White said...

Makayla--I wish I could answer that! It's one of those things that is VERY VERY UNLIKELY until SUDDENLY IT IS HAPPENING. And there really isn't much of a variation between those extremes. Right now it is optioned, so there's a chance, but until it actually happens it's very unlikely : )

Kiersten White said...

Kallikat--You are referring to Carlee : ) Carlee and Jack have a sweet, albeit overly dramatic, relationship and work together to make sure all of the people rescued from the faerie realms readjust to life and are taken care of. I honestly don't know whether or not they stay together in the long run.

maria said...

Hey its Maria you should make a movie about the book. I loved the books and would buy all the movies!

LauraN said...

Sorry, but I didn't pick this up until the next morning--previously scheduled crises . . . But I want to know where in Virginia Lend and his Dad live. See, I live in Northern Virginia, right outside of Washington, DC, and I see some pretty strange people, but I just thought it was because they were politicians.

Kiersten White said...

Maria--Thanks!

LauraN--Near Vienna, Virginia : ) And the strange people are probably paranormal politicians. Who else would want those jobs??

Jill A. said...

Hi, Kiersten! I love your books and can't wait for Mind Games. Can you explain what the process of "filling up" Evie by Reth. Why did he want her full? Thanks!

Makayla Anderson said...

Thanks! I'll keep my fingers crossed. And I am still envisioning Taylor Swift as our leading lady. :)

LauraN said...

That makes sense. I'm just down the road in McLean, across from the CIA. I bet they would LOVE to have someone like Lend. (I don't think he would enjoy the job, though.) So, what street is that cafe on? I didn't find it in my community directory.

Kristina Bechtol said...

Can you please write a fourth book? My friend and I really want to know a lot of questions, but there are too many to ask now. So please, please write a fourth book.

Eric33345 said...

Kiersten White, I am a huge fan. You are an amazing writer. I cried when the series ended. I still can't stop. I need to know the rest. These are literally the best books I have ever read in my life and ever will. I love you and your work, and my heart is attatched to this book. If you end it now, I will just tear me apart. Please make another book, or books. I can't handle not knowing what will happen to these guys, I love them so. Please my heart already hurts, don't crush it, make another book
