This is the official Dead Vanyel Party discussion post!

Whether it's your first read or your millionth, there's always something worth talking about--and rambling at length about at that. Confide in your fellow Lackey fans--who's your fave? What books do you eat up with a spoon? Does Vanyel end up as a gay Companion after the Mage Storms books? Or is he reborn as the very subtle baby herald "Vanel"? If so, does that make Stef his life-bonded companion "Tylenol", or what? And is Ma'ar REALLY dead? (No!)

Life's little questions, and we all want to talk about them.

Anon and unanon are currently allowed on this post. As of August 9, only anon posting will be allowed, in order to foster an anonny sense of anonymousness, in the vein of everyone's favorite meme ;P. The exception to the anon-only rule is the Introduction Thread, where you can introduce yourself and meet fellow players.

Username on DW/AO3/Tumblr: [personal profile] thene here. On AO3, my LHM fic is under [archiveofourown.org profile] typhe, because I started the account to post weird Van/Stef BDSM porn. I am also [archiveofourown.org profile] thene.
Favorite Valdemar Book: LHM
Most hated Valdemar book: LHM. wait.

Real talk, lovehating the LHM is a fount of unfinished business that causes endless fic. Of the others that I've read, the Mage Storms were the most boring, but it goes without saying that the fanfic anthologies are eyebleeding shitballs. I honestly have a hard time caring about things in HoV that don't pertain to the LHM.
Age of first exposure to Lackey: 16 - late bloomer, but it was next to impossible to get hold of where I lived; I read some import copies of the LHM that my sister had borrowed from a friend. I was out of my mind delirious with flu the whole time I was reading, which may explain a lot. (I love that you asked this question, btw. It is clearly relevant).
Favorite Valdemar protagonist and villain: Van, duh. Mornelithe Falconsbane makes me so angry.
Least favorite: On the protag side, not a fan of Lavan. Villains, I'm mostly okay with so long as they're memorable.
Thoughts On Yaoi: you know, I just typed a bunch of stuff but when I got to 'OOC Lendel fans were a blight on LHM fandom until 2010' I deleted it all.

Van/Stef - my honest-to-god OTP, in any position/AU/mortal status.
Van/everyone... I'll read almost anything in LHM fandom. Even the stuff I don't ship is interesting if it doesn't make me want to claw my eyeballs out. I'm used to reading with a hand half over my eyes.
Firesong/everyone including himself
Elspeth/Darkwind
...Well mostly I'm here for Van/Stef

*belatedly getting around to reading all the intro posts*

"Firesong/everyone including himself" made me cackle out loud. I also feel you on lovehating LHM -- I'm the sort of person who backspaces on any fic tagged "major character death." Yet here I am, crying my way through Magic's Price...

thene: PROTIP do not fuck with Minette (minette)
From: [personal profile] thene
Yeah. There are also a few other things that concern me, including stupid plot holes, biphobia, and Leareth being actually Ma'ar and therefore not dead and therefore the entire LHM being a ball of pointless. :P
