So, in the last paragraph, that bit about how Quiggly's use of insects is a possible reference to Plats being called insects. Was that in the formspring, or is it just conjecture?
It was on formspring several times, heres a quotation from the archives, page 6:
"Q: Is there any particular reason for Quigley liking bugs? I'd think it'd be because he sympathizes with them. He's cursed with a short lifespan, as are they. Maybe I'm just reading into it too much."
"A: Ding-ding. If you want to insult a Plat, you call them proll (Tainish for insect), because their time is so brief they are like a bug to you. Quigley has hence fashioned most all of his spells in the shape of bugs, as a smack in the face to people he doesn't care for. Prepare to see a lot of bugs this chapter."
Ah, okay. I didn't remember reading that, and just wanted to know where it came from. Thanks! --Anonymous 12:57, 16 May 2013 (EDT)
