I absolutely agree on the visual thing. It's not just the show toying with magical realism, though that's absolutely what they're doing; it's just so satisfying that they think about how to tell a story through multiple lenses and means???

AJAXBREAKER I LOVE THIS SHOW SO MUCH.

So, question for anyone reading: the Megalodon reference! It's still nipping at me. I love that the passage gives a sense of time in such a grand scope, but it was still shocking to see something that felt so Roundworld in the Discworld section. Does anyone have any insight into Pratchett's possible intent with that whole part?

His vision board was just... I loved that detail SO SO SO much.

And I did wonder aloud at one point if Sin Rostro was someone we met, but unlike Ajaxbreaker, I did not put two and two together at all. Bravo, ajaxbreaker!

I'm gonna put this in rot13 since I've finished the book, and I should note a trigger warning for general talk of abuse below:

See, I'd been reading it less like that and more like Tiffany was so, so busy being torn between the two steadings that she missed the obvious solution. Like, it was a ramification of burning the candle at both ends? But this is a fair point, especially regarding atlantapendrag's point about this distinction between being liked and being respected wasn't something that was brought up before this book.
