A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows - Part Deux

SPOILER ALERT: DINNA read unless you have read "A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows". 

OK here's the thing. I didn't mean "Why didn't Roger go WITH Jerry through the stones". I meant - Why didn't Roger go through the stones a few minutes after Jerry, in order to get back to his own time. He and Buck were clearly running away the uber-second that Jerry went through. So they didn't want to go through the stones at that point; they wanted to stay in the past. Why? I'm with Tracey on this - I think they're still looking for poor Jem who is wandering around in the mine at this point.

And you know what? I don't necessarily know that the fact that Jerry disappeared near standing stones would have made much of a difference to anyone in the 1940s; stone circles were all over the place in Britain. And most people either didn't know about the superstition, or thought it was just that; superstition. So.. when Claire said she went through the stones, Frank probably never even thought about Jerry's plane being found near stones.

Now HERE'S something odd... last night I watched Tristan and Isolde with James Franco (who I could have sworn was English and is actually from California!) Wow - talk about star-crossed love!!! Truly good flick - I highly recommend if you dig period pieces about the British isles.  It was set in the Dark Ages...and the costuming was spectacular.

Haven't read Songs of Love and Death yet? What are you waiting for?!?! :)


  1. I will never understand TT cuz I am not that smart. BUT, did Roger and Buck go back to the wrong time cuz Roger was thinking of Jeremiah and the Jeremiah his TT self hooked up with was the wrong one - his dad not his son? I am so confused. If R and B just came through why are they in Northumbria? What did I miss? Is DG finally over my head?

  2. Just have to interject that I LOVELOVELOVE James Franco. I love that he just does stuff that he finds interesting and doesn't give a flying eff about box office or career cred or whatever. I love that you can talk about the possibility of him winning an Oscar for that movie where he cuts off his hand...AND watch him on General Hospital the next day!! I swear, I wouldn't be surprised to see him on Dancing with the Stars or Survivor--just cause he thinks it looks like fun.

  3. James Franco is one tasty tuna. It's all in his eyes. Scrumpdillyicious fo sho.

  4. Maybe Roger and Buck ended up where they did by thinking of the gold? What year did Gellie travel to?
    And I agree with you Carol, if Frank did put the whole TT thing together with Jerry and Claire, I don't think it was until MUCH later. Didn't Claire say that Frank thought she was coo-coo for coco puffs when she first came back?

    Oh, and Tristan and Isolde is an awesome movie. Love James Franco, he is an original:)
