    Thank you. Which response are you referring to?

    My user name comes from an INFJ-INFP discussion about "If you were a shape-shifter, what would you shift into?" and a questioning of the assumption that all shape shifters have to be predators in their non-human form. The still-unanswered question is where would the rest of my body mass go if I shifted into a human-sized budgie. That question aside, I would LOVE to be able to fly.

    Ah! That's more of a discussion between us, not just me responding to her. So it's a mix of us both.

    Love your screen name, by the way. We have a running joke in our household about chickens. Purple chickens yay!

    Captain Angua is one of the more fantastic shapeshifters in fiction. My partner does not care for the stories that focus on the Watch, but he enjoys the ones about the witches. And The Hogfather has become one of our traditional family Christmas movies. Prattchett has a funny, twisty, irreverent mind. He's like the Douglas Adams of fantasy. I wouldn't say I'm really into him because I don't think he's in my top five, but I have read most of his Discworld books and I think I have all the movies based on his books. It bums me out that he, of all people, should have a deteriorating brain. The universe is a dick like that sometimes, though.

The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I like some of the Watch books and really like the Tiffany series. The others don't grab me, though. And yes about the universe being a dick. It breaks my heart that someone with a mind like Pratchett has that particular illness. I myself like your Pratchett-Adams comparison, though when I shared it with her, my partner said Pratchett is more like the Mark Twain of fantasy and Adams quirky to the point of being in a class by himself. I don't know if I agree with her or not, but she does know Pratchett way better than I do. Anyway, we both think Adams is hilarious and are sad he's not around to write more.

    You mentioned your top five (authors and/or books, in general or in that genre, I assume I assume) - what/who are your actual top five, then?

    No pressure!
    *sigh of relief* good! (though internally I may still put pressure on myself due to the responsibility and improbability of the role)

    I love it! Cheers for 12 year old you. Purple chicken for president - I might even get behind that one for the next election.

    And since @cafe and I are discussing Terry Pratchett, I can tie both parts of this reply together with this: Pratchett wrote a really funny short story about chickens and their multi-generational evolutionary quest to cross the road.

    If I was going to be stranded on a dessert island with only the complete works of five authors, I'd take JRR Tolkien, Diana Gabaldon, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, and have a major panic attack trying to choose the fifth. There are too many in the running. Maybe Jim Butcher or Ilona Andrews? If Patrick Rothfuss would get on the ball, maybe him. It's too hard. I can't do it.

    So okay, maybe the fifth one could be a wildcard category that allows a small buffet-style selection of favorite books, rather than choosing a fifth "complete works" author. Maybe?

    Also, random comment: I really really like Carey's Santa Olivia. Not in my top whatever, but still, I really enjoyed that book (and I liked the sequel also).
