That was before all that. End of Cold Days she becomes Winter Lady, then the short story takes place between that and Skin Game.

I don't recall Ramirez, or any of the council, appearing in Skin Game. Did someone tell Harry he'd been injured?

Re: The Walls Come Down: No Travel Betwen US and Europe for 30 Days

The last four years have seen a long list of things that everyone knew Trump couldn't do, or were blatantly unlawful for him to do. They happened anyway. So I'll hope for the best, but fear for the worst. There's already talk about banning large public gatherings: https://latimes.com/california/sto...

Re: SUPERTHREAD: 2020 United States Elections

So right after saying that it's pointless to continue if they don't get higher than 3rd so should drop out, you think the most likely winner is Sanders or Bloomberg, who didn't even take part. That's some ass backwards thinking.

Re: Jim Butcher has finally finished Peace Talks (Dresden Files). Release date coming soon.

But I thought they explained that Dresden had power over the Outsiders because he was born on Halloween/Samhain, a Night of Power. Surely that's only part of it at most. It would seem very anti-climatic if roughly 1/365ths of the entire human race have Harry's implied special and important anti-Out...

Re: Doctor who s12e03 Orphan 55 - SPOILERS

My main problem with this episode wasn't the message, it was the fact she left them to die. The teleport couldn't have been through time, they know its earth, go pick them up at the moment The Doctor and crew were beamed out. Instead she spells out the message in case people are too stupid to figure...

Re: Netflix Witcher series (spoilers)

But I agree with what's said about magic. Most of the complaints about magic can be applied to any series or film with magic; how can character A do this while character B can't, how long can they use magic since there are no Mana bars on screen. [In the first episode alone, having characters being...

Re: Trump rules hospital must provide price transparency

What use is seeing a cheaper hospital when your insurance company says its not in network and they will not pay for anything. Also: “This rule will introduce widespread confusion, accelerate anticompetitive behavior among health insurers and stymie innovations ,” There it is. Every industry which sa...

Boris want's an election because I think he honestly believes he'll win enough votes to just pass the deal. The opposition say they'll only grant it if No Deal is ruled out and the only way you could do that would be to pass a law saying either that current deal is agreed and passed automatically at...

Re: Blizzard stiffs and bans a Hong Kong supporter, wonders why people hate them

I'm conflicted. The rules DO state that certain speech is not acceptable but at the same time the cause is a noble one. It's thorny The rule in question is overly broad, vague and all encompassing.

The final "peace" involved getting Londo & G'kar to both finally realise they were lost in pointless hate, grow a grudging respect for each other then kill off everyone above them so that they could both say we're done with you, fuck and leave us alone.

Re: Brexit and not very united kingdom politics II

The only part of The Deal which the EU was willing to negotiate on was a better alternative to the Irish Backstop, to which the Tories response was, "We can't meet your deadline, we need another year." In other words despite their repeated complaints and claims about the border, they have no clue wh...

Probably his attempt to pull out of the Flores Agreement which can then be used as the justification for ignoring their recent court loss which says they can't treat migrant children like battery chickens (my paraphrasing).
