Finished for 3 pts to #teamstoker #scarathlon with a running total of 117

TheReadingMermaid I have you down as 119 honey. Did we miss a post somewhere? 🧟‍♀️ 2d
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid I haven‘t made any posts since my last one, about starting this book. Did you count that as a finished book? It would explain the 2 pt differential. 2d
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid Hi, I‘m sorry, but I think I want to drop out. I didn‘t know about all the games that would be involved. 2d

TheReadingMermaid @PlayingBonny oh sweetie you don't have to take part in the games if you don't want to. They are just an extra way to earn points is all. you are doing a fantastic job at contributing to the team so don't worry about that. if you want to drop out I completely understand but I ordered you to keep doing what you're doing because you're doing a awesome job! 🤗 2d
TheReadingMermaid Please let me know what you ultimately want to do. if you don't want to take part anymore I will take you off the roster. But like I said I think you're doing well and the games are optional they are not a requirement. 2d
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid if the points are ratio‘d can you take me off; if it‘s going to be a gross total I guess it makes sense to stay on for the basic contributions. I‘ll stop posting my totals though; I don‘t know where I‘m going wrong in the counting. 2d
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid please could you let me know which way it is, so I know whether to tag my posts, thank you. 16h
TheReadingMermaid Of course sweetie. The points are not rationed necessarily but I do keep track of everyone's individual points just for my own knowledge and in case they ever asked me what their total points are. It also helps me to count everyone's points up at the end of the week. You can still keep track of your individual points if you would like. Or you can just contribute to the team here and there whenever you can. Completely up to you darlin 😘 13h

Yep, still love this one. Still mad they made Henry cool in the tv show (he‘s a short, ginger, romance novelist, dammit! Not a tall, cool, graphic novelist!). 3 pts for #scarathlon #teamstoker to bring me to a total of 113

I‘m not in the headspace for Victorian writing, so rereading an old favourite instead of plugging on with the anthology (I‘m writing urban fantasy for NaNoWriMo, so it‘s also research of a sort).

#scarathlon #teamstoker 1 pt for the post to bring me up to 110.

TheReadingMermaid For the first two weeks I have you at 106 and then for the points you've accumulated since midnight last night I have you down for 4 4d
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid I‘ve been keeping a running tally through my posts and I‘m sure I have 109. 4d
TheReadingMermaid Okay no problem. I was probably just off one. I'm keeping score for over 50 people so it's a little difficult. I may be off one or two points here and there. thank you for keeping track I will adjust your points. 4d
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid no worries, I‘m trying to keep track myself to make it easier (it just doesn‘t seem to be working out that way, lol) 4d
TheReadingMermaid LOL I know all these points are a little hard to keep track of 🤪 4d

I always have mixed feelings about stuff with the Winchester Ghost House, because Sarah Winchester‘s letters indicate that the real reason she never stopped building was so she could tell relatives who wanted to visit “oh, sorry, I would totally let you stay, but I have the builders in...” and I just #relatable

PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid I don‘t think I‘ve commented on any of those yet, so I don‘t know where it‘s gone astray. Do we count scavenger hunt items? (I didn‘t think we got points for those or tv shows, but I‘ve seen a couple of posts with people adding them) 1w
TheReadingMermaid No we do not count TV shows and the scavenger hunt does not have a point system. if you are watching a TV show you can post it and get one point for participation. Maybe that's what you've seen people posting. 1w

I really enjoyed this book, but if you‘ve bought the collector‘s edition and put it on the shelf without reading it then please pull it down and check that you have a page 431. At least a few copies have a serious misprint, including mine and both the replacements I was sent, and I haven‘t seen much about it.

Smrloomis That cover is lovely but a missing page is a serious problem! 🤨 1w
PlayingBonny @Smrloomis yeah, I love the cover and all the extra artwork, but not happy. Hopefully there‘ll be a reprint, in the meantime I guess I have the paperback. 1w

I‘ve seen a couple of people counting tv shows and the scavenger hunt, but I don‘t think those count for points so I haven‘t included them in my total.

Vol. 9 of Demonslayer for #teamstoker #scarathlon

Not my fave of the run, but that‘s the first part done. I have English translations for the sequel. This volume contains the halloween edition (with the special cover) so I think that‘s 5 pts, plus 1 for the post.

Caved and read this in one sitting, and I‘ve been forced to face some home truths about myself, because me as a writer = I‘ve got this huge sprawling ‘verse specifically so I can write the genre/characters I feel like writing, but me as a reader = WHAT DO YOU MEAN ALL YOUR FUTURE BOOKS AREN‘T ABOUT THE CROWS? HOW VERY DARE!!!

Anyway, it turns out that what I thought was a random read falls under theme (necromancy), so go #teamstoker #scarathlon

Just finished vol. 8 of Demonslayer. I love the collected volumes for Phobs‘ artwork. (Balor & Yana doing the Who, Us? . I love these two: she‘s the sweetheart with the unfortunate problem that she can be possessed by any demon without her consent; he‘s the asshat ancient nightmare who‘s stuck in her head, but hey, at least he gets to vent his spleen on any demon who tries to possess her).

3pts for #teamstoker with a running total of 17

TheReadingMermaid Sweetie I have you down as having 13 points. Did I miss a post? If I didn't put a 🧟‍♀️ on your post that means that I probably missed it. 2w
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid I‘m at two themed books, four movies, and nine posts. There isn‘t a marker on our conversation last night, but the rest seem to be checked off? 2w
TheReadingMermaid Okay I must have missed one let me go ahead and add it. the point tracking gets kind of crazy sometimes so you got to kind of keep me in line 🤪🤪 2w

Hey-diddly-dee, Besoboi for me... (a.k.a Demonslayer). I think this only counts as one for #scarathlon but maybe it‘s 5? (It‘s not a standalone graphic novel, it‘s five comics from the run bound together and you need the rest to get the full story, then the sequel is a different run of comics). #teamstoker

TheReadingMermaid Does it actually take place in October or on/near Halloween? 2w
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid I was unsure because it‘s five comic books in one binding, and individual comics count, rather than it being set at halloween (I‘m like 99% sure it counts as one book but there was just that 1%). 2w
TheReadingMermaid It will count as one book because it's one binding so it would be like a graphic novel almost. But individual issues count as well if they are bound separately. Also if it takes place in October on/around Halloween then you get the six points for the Halloween book! 😉 2w
See All 10 Comments
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid Just the one point for this then, but I have the sequel as individual comics so they‘ll pack more punch 😉 (edited) 2w
TheReadingMermaid Okay but is it falling under the team theme? If it's about monsters or ghosts or anything of the like then it's two points 2w
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid Sorry, yes! Monsters and demons, witches, and ancient nightmares. It‘s very late here... 2w
TheReadingMermaid Okay I got it now! 🤪 Okay so this book is worth two points and one point for the post so three points total. 2w
PlayingBonny @TheReadingMermaid thank you! I‘m keeping my records as separate tallies, so it didn‘t dawn on me to combine 😂 sorry for the mess on. 2w
TheReadingMermaid Sure sweetheart no problem. Do you want to know your total that I have so far? I have you at 10 points total 2w
PlayingBonny I have a couple of movies I haven‘t logged with you just yet as I was going to do it tomorrow, so I‘ve got myself at 11 not including this - it breaks down to four movies (The Howling, It, Anaconda, and Thirteen Ghosts), and seven posts, no books finished yet. (edited) 2w
