When WPFP released, I shared the ships that reminded me of Clarand for one reason or another. Now I'm going to share the ships that I ship because of Reutra.
Percy and Annabeth
I shared this one on Clarand, too, but for a different reason. While their rivalry-turned-ship reminds me of Clarand, their personalities remind me more of Reuben and Petra. She's the smart one who has her head on her shoulders while he ... he might be smart, but he enjoys acting like an idiot.
Emma and Mr. Knightly
Clarand was my Pride and Prejudice ship. Reutra reminds me more of Emma and Knightly - especially in their Emma Approved incarnation. Not personality-wise, so much, but situation-wise.
David Copperfield and Agnes
Again, the situation thing. Childhood friends who end up together.
Ladybug and Chat Noir
So ... earlier this year I heard about this show "Miraculous Ladybug" or something like that. I love ladybugs but thought it sounded cheesy. And then I found fancomics and decided that I'd give it a try. I have since watched almost every episode twice.
Anywho, in their Ladybug and Chat Noir guises. the main characters of this show have a relationship and interplay that remind me very much of Reutra.
Ella and Prince Char
In Ella Enchanted. Again, childhood friends who end up together. They're also adorable.
Ivy and Dor
From Xanth. Again. childhood friends. They have the added bonus of their relationship being kinda expected - she's the princess, but he's set to be the next king because his Talent is Magician status.
Madeline and Pepito
I was a HUGE fan of Madeline as a child (no doubt an influence on my love of Miraculous Ladybug now). Now, Madeline and Pepito aren't a confirmed ship ... but I'd like to think that they ended up together eventually.
Trask and Anne
From Ilyon. Again, childhood friends. Again, he's a bit impulsive while she's practical.
Will and ... I forget. Alice, wasn't it?
From the Ranger's Apprentice. The girl he grew up with as a fellow orphan, The one who was really smart and joined the ambassador/lawyer group. I think. Anywho. I ship 'em.
Makilien and Aedan
Now this is my rebel ship, because they aren't a ship at all, unless it strictly a friendship. But I swear they would have been adorable together, and might have strengthened the plot of the book. Not that I think she shouldn't have ended up with Sirion - they're totally cute together. I just ... wasn't satisfied with his romance.
And that's all I can think of right now. If you know of any ships that remind you of Reutra, feel free to toss them into the mix.
Paperback - Yes, it's out. And get it now while it's $14.99, because after the tour is over, it'll go up to $19.99 because it's a big book and I can't put it in the Expanded distribution otherwise.
I'm doing a giveaway, as per normal for a tour. Prize is an autographed copy of LDTD, a 2.5 oz bottle of Citrus Bliss Lotion - my favorite lotion that smells like citrus and vanilla - and a Serenity Bath Bar - which smells like lavender and vanilla and is awesome for relaxing before bed. Giveaway is US ONLY, however. Sorry about that, but ... shipping.
I'm also doing a comment giveaway. The person who leaves the most comments on the blog tour posts - including the interviews, reviews, and guest posts - and my back posts with the Lady Dragon Tela Du or Rizkaland Legend lables will get a sneak peak at either book three or Worth of a King. Possibly both. I'm generous. This giveaway is international, because there is no shipping. (Well, there may be shipping, on your end, once you get the book, but I don't have to pay for it.) Comments on AA posts with the Lady Dragon Tela Du tag also count. (The AA is my extra blog where I post snippets and in-between bits about my characters that have spoilers. It's member only, but if you'll email me telling me that you've read the three Bookanias or at least Water Princess, Fire Prince, I'll add you to the access list.) And I decided yesterday that I'll also count any and all speculations about future Rizkaland and the connecting stories posted on this thread on Goodreads during the the tour.
