Salmoneus wrote: 23 Nov 2019 16:45 [to be fair, given the finite number of combinations of "[portentous word 1]'s [portentous word 2]" (or "[pw2] of [pw1]", for variety), it's becoming genuinely hard to find new epic fantasy novel titles that aren't already taken. There's only so many paths, ways, kings, traitors, swords (blades, knives), dragons, quests, heroes, princes (princesses), shadows, darknesses, thorns, flames, tests, clashes, wars, winters, summers, songs, knights, wizards, ships, magics, assassins, dawns, bloods, elves, thieves, and if you're Anne McCaffrey potentially dolphins to go around, and we may now have passed the event horizon of title-originality...]

(Also it took me unbearably long to decypher your dates)
Understandable. Rather than the 29th or 30th of December, alynnidalar could just as easily have been asking to go on the 12th day of the 29th or 30th month. We damn Americans insist on having one month per state, after all. [:P]
[xD] Sorry! Forgot to put it in nice unambiguous words. Yes I would like to go on the 12th day of Thirticember if possible, if not the 12th day of Twentynintuary will be acceptable as well.

Those who know of Neil Tennant would be the Youth Culturalists. Knowledgeable of popular music, especially the alternative and indie artists. And, given the Pet Shop Boys' sexual orientation, many of the Neil people are quite likely to also be LGBT themselves.

Then we have the preppies.

These are the clean-cut, forties/fifties-era throwback, "Mom and apple pie" people who aspire to a corporate office job in a suit with 2.5 kids and an opposite-gender spouse. Like the soldiers of the Greatest Generation, they are Boy Scouts who love God and their country. They would gladly serve in uniform if they were drafted.

They know only of Lou Tennant.
