    Milking it is a real bastard for tiny mice, of course

    The first book made it seem like there were possibly humans in the world, and also made references to the Christian God and Satan, but those elements were basically abandoned after that

    I watched this movie all the time when I was a kid.

    Always so sad when Nicodemus dies.

    Yeah, like the horse was pulling a human-sized cart and it was sort of hard to tell how big the church (St. Ninians?) was.

    Eulaliaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

    (wikipedia knows how smart Brian Jacques was! "Eulalia" ("Victory") is the war cry used by the Salamandastron fighting Hares and Badgers. It comes from "Weialala leia", the lament of the Valkyries in Richard Wagner's opera Götterdämmerung, as quoted by T.S. Eliot in The Waste Land.)

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant. And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.

    Did Jacques ever address the "vermin are all evil" angle or did he stick to it in later books too?

    Once in a while you got a good one. That one rat (i think) in "Mariel of Redwall" turned out to be a good guy, and Veil in "Outcast" reformed at the last second.

    Yeah that used to irritate me even when I was reading it as a kid. Even in Outcast of Redwall, you have this stoat(?) that was raised by the Redwall people, but still turned out to be a massive dick, because apparently stoats are genetically determined to be dicks.

    edit: Ok maybe I'm not remembering right. It's been a long time since I read them.

    I have never read Redwall, I have seen the cartoon and do remember my skill martial arts friend doing something incredible to enter the dorm lounge as I watched it before my family picked me up for church.

    *kung fu entrance*

    HIM:They made a Redwall Cartoon?????
    Me: Uhhh....Yes?
    HIM:Good, here's that filipino dish of chocolate rice and coconut milk
    *kung fu exit*
    Me:.....thats good rice.

    Nah, he was a dick for like 95% of his existence in the book. Then at the very end he's like "Wait dad, don't kill her," BAM, javelined.

    I think I still have all of mine, up in the attic. I had everything from Redwall up to Pearls of Lutra, except for Mossflower I think. I kind of feel like re-reading them but I wonder if it would ruin the nostalgia.

    I always imagined Hotroot Soup being like a really spicy New England Clam Chowder, but with shrimp instead of clams.
