About Finn, spoilers for both booksCollapse )

Anyway, I thought I would open it up for discussion and see what others thought about this. Also, I posted a lot of semi-coherent ramblings about feelings and ships and general reactions publicly on my Dreamwidth, so if anyone wants to help me flail and fangirl, please do so :3

When did you become a fan? This week
Favorite character(s): All of them. Don't make me pick XD
Favorite pairing/ships: Jared/Claudia and Keiro/Attia
Favorite scenes/quotes: If I made a list it would be practically the length of an entire book
Why do you like Incarceron? I have been a huge fan of Catherine Fisher's books since I first read her Oracle Prophecies series several years ago. It took me a few years to get around to reading this set, but now I'm sorry I waited—I wasn't sure if I was going to like it as much as her other series, but lololol I should have known better. I love Catherine Fisher's world-building, I love the depth to all her characters, how they're all so multi-faceted; and in particular, I love the complex relationships she's woven into this particular series. I mean, I guess that's a staple in all her books, but for some reason this series has really yanked me in, I've been kind of flipping out all the way through Sapphique and it's been quite awhile since I've had that level of obsession for a book series XD
Other fandoms: I'm very involved with the Oracle Prophecies fandom on DeviantART; I've also been really into The Avengers on Tumblr, and I've been a hardcore Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon fan since 2004. Those are the fandoms I'm most "into" currently XD
Favorite books: pretty much anything by Catherine Fisher, Malinda Lo, Meg Cabot, Sarah Diemer, Cornelia Funke... I loooooove the Howl's Moving Castle books by Diana Wynne Jones, and my all-time favorite book is Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
Anything else?:

Love YA lit? Love writing fic?  Love writing fic for YA lit and wondering why there doesn’t seem to be very much for most books?

Join the YAlit100 challenge!

  • You MAY claim more than one table at a time.
  • You MAY do crossovers, fusions, and AU fic! If you intend to write crossovers and/or fusions, claim the table for the MAIN WORK (so, for example, if you want to write 100 godly-parent-fusion fics, your claim would be “Percy Jackson,” unless all 100 fics would star characters from Anna and the French Kiss or something. SOME ASPECT of all 100 fics must be constant for the book/table you choose!)
  • Fics can be ANY LENGTH. You may write 3-sentence fics, drabbles, one-shots, six-word-ficfests, whatever. The whole point is just to encourage more YA lit fic! :)

So far, there are just the first few tables up, but I will be adding my usual amount of ALL THE YA BOOKS.  :P  Join and/or Watch the
comm on LJ for updates, and make sure to suggest any book(s) that you may think I’ll miss or that you want to see sooner!

Time to wake up people~

Name/Nickname: I go by Lycoris or aweful on the interwebs.

When did you become a fan? Last year when it was first released over here.
Favorite character(s): Incarceron. No really, I heart that crazy AI so much. I also love Ritz, Keiro, and Finn. EVERYONE IS MY FAVORITE OKAY
Favorite pairing/ships: Keiro/Finn and Jared/Claudia are my top two (and the ones I see the most evidence for hoho). But I literally ship everything.
Favorite scenes/quotes: Anytime Saphiqque is mentioned. I love the sort of half-life he has. ALL OF INCARCERON's DRY COMMENTS. Anytime Finn and Keiro are being stupid, obsessive boyfriends with each other. THE ENDING ♥
Why do you like Incarceron? What's not to like? It's such a fresh take on the YA genre. I'm usually a pretty harsh critic but Incarceron's world captured me from the first. All of the characters are brilliant.
Other fandoms: Hetalia, Doctor Who, and the Tales of videogame series are my top three. For books I looooove Diana Wynne Jones and her Howl's Moving Castle. I have a complete list at my journal.
Favorite books: Howl's Moving Castle, Steppenwolf, Incantation... omg a lot more. okay.
Anything else?: I'm going to be starting a "Let's Read" of these two books over at tumblr. Basically it's me commentating on each chapter alongside specific quotations and interesting tidbits. A labor of love and my attempt to get Incarceron noticed some more. I'll post the link here when I'm done. I WOULD LOVE IT IF I HAD SOME OTHER COMMENTATORS : D

Hi! I just finished reading Sapphique yesterday, and I have some questions in my mind. I hope it's okay to ask these questions here, since I'm interested to know what other readers think.

All I want is closure.Collapse )

This lovely piece of fanart is by our own ana_br. (Click the banner to see the full size at her deviantART account.) The quote is taken from Sapphique and this is the dream cast she featured for those who are curious:

Claudia Arlexa - BRITT ROBERTSON
Jared Sapiens - LEE PACE

Catherine Fisher has a Q&A section on her site, so I thought I'd copy some of her answers here to clear up some questions in the fandom.

Will there be third book to follow Sapphique? No.
Q: Why are you only writing two books in the Incarceron series? Your work is so impressive it must go on!

A: Incarceron is not a series. It was originally conceived as a single book, but the plot became so long I needed a sequel. And now it's finished. There are so many other stories to tell...

Would she write a prequel? Not likely, but possible.
Q: Is there anyway you would maybe write a prequel to the books? I think it would be very interesting to know what exactly happened during the Years of Rage and how the moon got to be the way it is. please please write a prequel!

A: I'm into something else at present, but maybe one day. Who knows.

Did she participate in Taylor Lautner's casting? No.
Q: Did you have any say in the casting of Taylor Lautner as Finn in the Incarceron movie? I'm sorry, but why him? Not that I don't like Taylor, but he's just not the kind of actor I pictured Finn as at all. I have to admit, though, I love the books enough that I will still go see it at any cost.

A: I have no say in casting. But, maybe you've answered your own question. All his fans will go to see the film because of him.

What does she think of Taylor Lautner being cast as Finn? She's okay with it.
Q: My question is what do you think of Taylor Lautner's being cast as Finn, if that's an appropriate question. Also, as they are set in the future, what sort of accents did you imagine the characters to have?

A: I am perfectly happy about Mr. Lautner's casting- I'm sure he'll be great. As for accents, it'll be strange to hear US ones [since she's British], but if they're the ones making the film...

Who would she like to play Claudia? An unknown.
Q: I heard that there is going to be an Incarceron movie. Since there is already a Finn chosen (Taylor Lautner), if you could pick out the actress for Claudia, who would you have in mind? I was just wondering who your dream-Claudia was.

A: I don't really know enough young actresses to pick one. It would be good if it was someone unknown. But she has to be good, because Claudia is a very important part of this book.

Does she have a preference for a director of the movie? Anyone with an usual vision.
Q: If you could have any director direct the screen adaptation who would that be? Me personally I can see Terry Gilliam, he's into dystopian films and very imaginative!

A: As for directors, I think Terry Gilliam would be great, or anyone with an unusual vision.

General thoughts on movie interpretations of books: books are more powerful than film.
Q: Hello Catherine, given that all goes well with film production in Incarceron, would you have any hopes of your other books becoming film adapted or would you rather preserve the art of a book in a book?

A: [...] But in essence I am a writer and I think the written word is more powerful and has more potential to really explore people and situations than any film.

I'm also collecting a series of questions and answers that have to do solely with the book. I'll publish the first part of those in the next few days, but there are 256 pages of questions to get through so it takes a little while. Hope this illuminates a little about her feelings relating to the future and the movie though!

If you have another question to ask Catherine Fisher, you can submit it here at her website. Let us know if you get an interesting reply!
