With 16 questions published (hopefully) that brings an end to the Q&A! I hope you enjoyed the range of questions.

There’s only a few more days left of the readathon and I’ll be sad to see it end, but it’s been so much fun!

If you could choose one song to sum up the vibe of Blue Lily, Lily Blue, what would it be? Or one of many. I know only ever choosing one song is nearly impossible. Asked by Chancie

“Neon Never Changes” by the Lonely Forest is the song I listened to the most often for it, though the playlist is hours long (and there’s a really terribly long version here, and a shorter version on the website). It’s a little bit the lyrics, but mostly the sound of it. Sort of climbing and strange and building — because that’s what Blue Lily, Lily Blue is. It’s the kerchunk, kerchunk part of the roller coaster, right before you reach the top of the climb.

What songs do you think sums up the Raven Cycle series so far? 

Any songs that remind you of The Raven Boys, The Dream Thieves, or, those lucky enough to have read it, Blue Lily, Lily Blue?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how good/bad of a dancer is Gansey? Submitted by Jen

Maggie said:

I think you mean on a scale of 1 to dork. I take that back. I doubt he’s danced, I really do, but I also think that he’s Gansey, which means he would stride into it with the confidence and can-do attitude of the well-socialized.

Who do you think would be the best dancer out of the Raven Boys?

I vote Noah… because he’s the only one I can see dancing.

While rereading The Raven Boys, I came to the part where a receipt falls in the back of the Pig and settles there with the rest of the identical receipts sans same date. My question is, if the boys always get a deep dish pizza—half avocado and half sausage—who eats the avocado part and who eats the sausage part? I wonder. What type of pizza would Blue order? What would pizza would you order? (or, uh, make considering your food allergies and what not) Adapted from a question by leilahali

Maggie answered:

Clearly Gansey eats the avocado. And I reckon Blue is tired to death of pizza after working at Nino’s. I worked at a store called Made in Virginia when I was in college, and one of things we sold there was this great handmade fudge. Well, it started great. By the end of college, I never wanted to see a piece of fudge again. I haven’t had any for a decade because of that job.

 

I love pizza. Onion, please, on mine.

If you visited Nino’s what pizza would you order?

This one has been bothering me for some time now- Who cleans Monmouth Manufacturing? I mean, it’s obviously not Ronan, who probably makes the worst messes but places himself above common housekeeping, and I just can’t justify an image of Gansey scrubbing a toilet. He may have to, though. I don’t really imagine either of them as having been taught to keep house, spoiled rich boys that they are. So, does Gansey hire someone to clean every Tuesday and Thursday? Does Noah sweep and mop? Garbage pickup day must be one long battle. This important question was asked by @Krisizzzzle

Maggie answered:

No one picks up. It’s disgusting. Don’t use the toilet in there, you won’t like it. You will find out more about the facilities in book 3, but not enough to make you happy using them. I suspect, though, that both Ronan and Gansey have had to clean toilets in their day. They are rich, yes, and privileged, yes, but neither was cosseted by their family. I’m afraid that not forcing your offspring to clean up after themselves is a parenting misstep that transcends classes.

I am not surprised by this, but still. That’s kind of disgusting. Surely eventually it gets to a point where they have to clean it. 

Anyway, I’m not going to even try to come up with a question for this. Please, express your horror.
