Connections between the bald doctors and Pennywise? Not that I've read IT yet, but I thought I read somewhere that Pennywise (the clown, right?) has more of a similarity to...

[hide]Mordred, because of the spider thing.[/hide]

Storm of the Century basic plot outline?
Spoilered if necessary. I'm willing to hear more than just the gist.

[hide]He does, but they're all "Long Timers" (the Doctors, Mordred, and The Clown), Pennywise actually makes an allusion to this "caste" within the "Tower" reality at one point.[/hide]

[hide] Entity calling himself Legion tortures a coastal town until they sacrifice a child to him so he can have an offspring.

The significance being it throws more into the "caste" theory as evidence, several other very evil characters claim to be "Legion" in other novels, Flagg and Leland Gaunt of Needful Things, which makes it more of a class rather than a simple claim to be a Demon. Much like the "Long Timer's" being a class of entity. After all the real Legion was no single entity, but a collection of them.[/hide]

Bag: I somehow took you for an "all or nothing" type of guy.







Gobo:

I'm familiar with the words "only if"



What the hell is the meaning of this "ask nicely" of which you speak?

Nicely is a friend of mine... and he's not likely to say yes.

Well, I didn't like books I and VI very much, but that doesn't mean I wrote off the whole series.

So, he has nothing to do with this, or the delcaration that you in fact suck.


I would normally provide photo-evidence, but since it contains material that can only be described as "deeply pornographic in nature" I think Rob would object.



You should be ashamed of doing stuff like that with books.

You're just not hardcore.
