Journey Into Mossflower
A sultana is a dried white grape. Or the wife of a Sultan, but that's not relevant here.

I'm going to fallow

Qestion are you doing this in Memory of Brain Jacques
Envyus
Yep. I own about half the books, and I'm buying Epub files of the other half.

What point are you trying to make by counting the mentions of Hell?
Vilui
Just a humorous noting of this trope in action.

Eh, I always found this last segment with Cornflower to be incredibly cheesy. She falls for Matthias too quickly, and doesn't gain much of a personality until her next book, Mattimeo. Right now she's just filling the obligatory love interest gap. Cornflower in Mattimeo = great and leader. Cornflower in Redwall = boring.

Huh, my mind immediately went to Shadow from Final Fantasy VI.

I adored this book as a kid, and all the others. It's kind of embarrassing to look back and see how formulaic they really were. Still, Brian Jacques was an awesome guy; the sheer variety of jobs he had before becoming an author staggers me. I'm actually very interested in what his stand-up routine (which he said was his favorite pre-Redwall job) was like.

Heh, if the physics of the world of Redwall are like real-world physics...

You can drop a mouse down a thousand-yard mine shaft; and, on arriving at the bottom, it gets a slight shock and walks away, provided that the ground is fairly soft. A rat is killed...
J.B.S. Haldane

...but that's still a thousand yards. 6 isn't going to do a whole lot.

But I'm perhaps expecting too much if I think fiction writers are going to incorporate the square-cube law into such matters.

If the video's meant to be linking to the Asmodeus scene, it's actually at 5:50, not 3:54. Otherwise, keep up these great and funny posts!
