    “When we grab you by the ankles,
    Where our mark is to be made,
    You’ll soon be doing noble work,
    Although you won’t be paid.

    When we drive away in secret,
    You’ll be a volunteer,
    So don’t scream when we take you:
    The world is quiet here.”

    It’s about time SoUE had it’s own thread.

    So, Smith, unless you have been stalking the notforum, you won’t know this.

    I have the vfd symbol tattooed on my left ankle. All the tattoos I have and are planning on getting have meanings. The SoUE tattoo that I have is meaningful because it was the first book series I ever read. And if it was never a thing. I would probably never have gotten the love for reading that I have…and therefore wouldn’t be who I am.

    Count Olaf was my childhood role model, I always wanted to be part of his gang. I plan on reading the books to my future children and scaring them with my tattoo.

    Where I stand on the movie:
    Olaf was funny and it’s good as a stand alone movie, but it was so far from the books.

    Where I stand on the netflix show:
    Beautiful. I love olaf and casting is perfect!! Cannot wait for season 2! SoUE is finally getting what it deserves….a good rendition. They introduced some things way too early. But I understand why. In the books lemony just…dumps everything on you at once.

    I have reread the series about 4 times. Yes I read the whole page of “ever”s looking for a misspelling. Yes I read that one chapter that lemony said to skip, saying nothing important was in there. Yes it is my life.

    Roughly….180-400
    Most are under 200. The box set now is expensive. I have had mine…for…since second grade I think…and so some are…a little abused as little me didn’t know how to treat books. But no ripped pages, just hurt spines. And only the first 4 books

    So short, at any rate. I don’t think of a book as long until it’s at least 400 pages.

    It’s a fantastic book for all grade levels in my opinion. But my sister thinks it’s stupid…and gets frustrated at lemony’s use of large words nobody has ever heard of for no reason. (Also, lemony isn’t real. It’s a character.)

    Right, I wasn’t saying that it its quality was determined by its length, I was just stating what I think of as constituting a lengthy book.

    Right. Kind of like how I would suggest the Wingfeather Saga to pretty much anybody and everybody.

    I am on the fire fighting side of the schism. They get to have all the secret codes and obscure literary references. I should also mention that “penultimate” is one of the most useful words I’ve ever learned.

    Miss The Legend, I had heard tales of your greatness and rumors of your tattoo. That is a level of dedication that has my utmost respect.

    WAIT, there were extra books?!?!
    And I haven’t been able to watch the series yet because I don’t have Netflix, but hopefully I can marathon it with my friend soon. I really want to see it.

    Mr. Handler wrote about five extra books, in a series called “All The Wrong Questions” about Lemony’s time as an apprentice with VFD.

    Didn’t he also write something about beatrice?

    It’s an honor to meet you, smith. I’m not as good at writing anything all fancy, but you are apparently…which is epic

    The tattoo…my mom was cool with (she’s got 2 half sleeves that she is working on making full, and a ton of others), she just didn’t understand what it was, even after I explained. Neither did the artist.
    Like I said, I’m on the fire starting side. I would probably flip flop back and forth. Maybe be an undercover spy for the fire fighting side…
