I started reading Kindred Spirits and while I love reading more about Flint, little Tanis, and little Laurana, one plot point is really bothering me and I can’t get over it.
Why is there a red-robed mage in Qualinost? Wasn’t it made extremely clear in Chronicles and Legends that the elves are suspicious of red-robed magic users because they view them as one step away from the black robes, so the elves only have white-robed magic users? Tell me I’m remembering that right? Because that was a big deal, what with them not liking Raistlin, and I believe it was mentioned again as part of Dalamar’s story to an extent (although he went right to the black robes).
If the authors of this book weren’t big enough fans to remember that, then I’m worried about how the story as a whole is going to be.
You remember right. There’s a lot of little inconsistencies throughout the DL novels. It’s pretty annoying but also pretty typical in shared worlds. :\

Ok, so my dad likes to do this thing where he acts like we’ve said something negative about a thing we like. So Dad, Mom, and me (J) are hanging out, and out of the blue…
Dad: “J says Thor is a weenie.”
Dad: “Yep. You said Thor is a weenie and that arrow guy could beat him. What’s his name?”
Dad. “Yeah. Hawkeye could beat Thor because Thor is a weenie.”
Mom: “Dad, stop saying Thor is a weenie. Just stop!”
Dad: “J said it, not me!”
J: “I don’t think I said that.”
Dad: “You did! You said it in your sleep! I heard you, dreaming about Hawkeye beating Thor, because Thor is a weenie.”
Mom: “I think you misunderstood that dream.”
Dad: “Dear! Dammit, I can’t say anything around you. Fine, J says Thor is a sissy.”

Tika (and Caramon’s) houses, according to the Atlas
wow this isn’t INCREDIBLY DEPRESSING at all
i can’t help thinking about what it would be like to grow up in a house that had a room dedicated to your dead uncle. and to have random mages show up wanting to visit that room and leave little magic trinkets as homage to said dead uncle.
also, since they have a room for tas, there is absolutely no way that uncle tas and the little majeres did not get into trouble with magic trinkets from raistlin’s room. no. way.
Just out of curiosity, has anyone managed to watch the horrible animated “Dragons of Autumn Twilight” movie all the way through? Personally, I couldn’t take any more after about twenty minutes. (or possibly ten minutes that felt like twenty).
It’s too bad, because for some reason Kiefer Sutherland as the voice of Raistlin really appeals to me.
Yes. I pretend it’s a comedy and laugh until I cry. It really is terrible.
(I first watched it with my brother, and at one point, we had to rewind to see if Solostoran’s crown really had the Pepsi logo on it (a golden version, but yes it does); rewinding made it look like Tanis was singing “I Will Survive” to Laurana, and that was the best part of the movie tbh.)
