Problem is how much are they going to change the original...

Oh well! I'm sure it'll be amazing anyway.

I'm literally obsessed with Kotlc lol. Fave character is Keefe (Team Foster-Keefe for life) and I find Fitz veryyy annoying. My favorite book is Neverseen for some reason, and my least favorite is Flashback 'cause Fitz. Also, yes Lumi, Shannon's cliffhangers are the w o r s t. The last one is just... ugh. *SPOILERS AHEAD* I can't believe how she ended Unlocked! The whole thing with Keefe's rebooted talents and how he runs off at the end... to live with humans, I think. The character development is awesome. I seriously love this book series so much :)

My favorite characters are Keefe and Linh (not including Sophie, obviously).

Also, random story idea - what if Keefe lands in New York or something, and meets people from Camp Half-Blood (from Percy Jackson)? I mean, not for the actual series, obviously, but it's fun to think about. Like, you could contrast shadow travel/light leaping, and the pegasi/Silveny, and a bunch of abilities have sort-of parallels. Oh, and with Keefe's new ability, the humans he might have bumped into feel weird, and then he runs into a demigod, and they feel different. Idk. Okay, I'm talking about this too much.

Wait but this is brilliant. I need this to happen. Maybe Keefe has no idea what to do when he gets there and he meets a nice lady named Sally Jackson who takes him in and helps him, and Percy comes home and is just like, mom, this guy isn't human. That would be soo awesome XD

Yes! Hmm... Do you want to start a thread to write this? We could all join in and figure it out.

Oooh YAY!!! Okay I agree with all of you: Fitz is the worst, Sokeefe always, Shannon Messengers's cliffhngers are horrible, OMG THEY'RE MAKING A MOVIE??????????!!!!!!!!!! None of you talked about this but I'm so sad Rex is going to be Talentless! They made that part really depressing. Oh one more thing, @Moonkitten, that would be so awesome... Annabeth and Sophie would be best freinds... alright I need to go so I can write all of my predictions down somewhere! (Wow that just looks really high-pitched)

Yeah... I mean, technically Rex might be just farther away from manifesting, and Keefe can't sense that? He barely tested his ability before running off, so it's hard to say... But yes, it is very sad. Also, yes - we should start a thread to write this story.

So the Keeper fandom/wiki thing says that Shannon Messenger's contract is only until book 9, although she can renew it at any time. SO that leaves us with a big question - will this be the last book?

I don't think so, because there are way too many loose ends. I mean, Sophie just started a WAR (which I still don't get; the Neverseen has already attacked her, but whatever), and we still don't know what the Vacker Legacy is (right? it's been too long since I read the later books), and then there's the whole Keefe thing...

Post ideas, questions, or um anything else! Don't let this thread die pls!

Hmm... I really don't know about whether there's gonna be more than 9 books. I think it all depends on what Shannon wants, cause she's the one that's gotta write it all. I think there's a good chance of there being 10 books, though, but probably not more. 

I think that Sophie & co are gonna go on a quest into the human world to get Keefe back. Or they mught just... leave him? I don't know, and I can't believe we have to wait until NOVEMBER to find out, ugh.

Also, something that I noticed is with the whole Matching system, the only people on your list is people of the opposite gender. I'm not sure if Shannon thinks that lgbtq elves exist in her world, but I think that the elves should at least have a choice as to what gender goes on their lists.

Anyone else think Marella and Maruca's names are way too similar for two girls who both manifest crazy abilities in the same book??

(Or is it two consecutive books? I don't remember, it's been way too long since I read the later books. Still.)

Yep. It helps when you realize how different they look from each other, though. I wonder how Shannon came up with all these names...

I will forever be mad at Sophie for not using 'Accio cache' as her failsafe words for the cache...

(not really, but still)
