08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

I seem to have been appointed to Team Seeker.  While I came to hate those books with a passion, it's still better than Twilight.

And I have a llama badge!  Thankee, Not-So-Mysterious Benefactor!

Seeker or Twilight... I wonder what's worse. XD

It's a tough one. There are more books to endure in the Seeker series. The plot is less mind-numbingly dumb, but I think the morality the story espouses may actually be a bit evil...or at least it is *seriously* creepy (you get to choose between having dictatorial wizards own your soul or getting mind controlled by a Communist barbarian? Euuugh, no thanks). And frankly I don't find the characters any brighter or the love story any less obnoxious than in Twlight. On the other hand, the pure aggravation factor of teenage vampire romance is not to be underestimated.

Thanks for the llama, though!

I lasted through the first 6 books. Mostly because it was at a period of my life when I *needed* somewhat mind-numbing reads, that I could consider as 'better laugh than cry' (preparing for a competitive exam). As soon as the oral exam was over, I dropped the books, though. :lol:

And yeah, much, much "WTF" snickering. I mean, Darken Rahl. Sheesh. 'Little Father'. And the chars aren't that better, I agree.

Pretty much the same reason I started reading them. The first few were charming in their silliness and had enough uniqueness to hold my interest. But after a while it started getting really ridiculous. :)

I kind of liked Darken Rahl, though. Pity he didn't survive very long. He was much better than Whatsisface, the dreamwalker. Jaghang? Or was that a Wheel of Time character? I can't remember anymore; I started reading both series at the same time, in 9th grade, and they both went on forever.

I can't believe WOT *still* isn't finished. XD
