    That's too many shows, I'm out, going on holiday from TV.

    Do you like having crossovers / continuations through different shows? Or is it all just a little messy?

    Okay, but that brings forth: what is best apple?

    Well, it's one thing to be like "Between all the shows there's more then 20 seasons" and being like "When I started watching this like nine years ago, there was only one show, and then two, and now I watch it weekly and different shows are not on at the same time." It's easier for me to suggest it when I didn't have to look at so many episodes.

    I like when shows are they're own thing, for the most part, but I like that I'm not watching a show I'm watching a universe. Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tommorow, Supergirl, Black Lightning, and Superman and Lois all take place "together." They crossover, but it's more then that, it's a universe. I find that enjoyable.

    I have to go with red. As much as I like green, I don't choose them or anything else often. It's been a while since I've had apples in general.

    Yeah understandable. I did like way back when there was shared universal stuff between Stargate series, but that was on a seemingly a much smaller scale than what you describe. More self contained too. I'm not a fan of when the scope becomes too wide, the Marvel movies is a prime example of something which is too expanded for me. (I also do not watch movies, so yeah lol)

    I'm much more favourable toward book series being intertwined with reoccurring characters and places. At least then you know it's only one writer to deal with.

    Okay enough of fruit. What about the leader of vegetables?

    It's usually like, references to things that are in universe. "Oh I called character from other show and they said to try this." Very, very rarely they'll call a character directly. Usually they're completely disconnected except for when they crossover. Like Flash season 7 didn't reference or interact with anyone. It was completely standalone. Season 8 starts with a five part event that features characters from the other shows. You can just watch the Flash, as long as you watch the crossovers, and the Flash will make sense, but the other characters won't.

    See that's what I would want to do eventually, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized how restricting it would be. I like to play with Gods and universal rules. Part of reading my stuff is figuring out how things work. If I have everything set in one universe, I can't play with that as much.

    Peas! Maybe.

    Have you ever read any Brandon Sanderson novels?

    His books are set on different worlds in the same universe, so they can have different magic and stuff. Very loosely connected and if you don't see the connections you don't miss out any.

    Alright, no more outrageous food related questions. Unless you're into them?

    I haven't! I'll have to make a note of them.

    I'm happy to be asked questions at all. It's been awfully lonely with you gone, Vee. So so cold.

    Might be worth checking out. I feel like he has a style which if you read one book you'll kinda know what to expect from his other novels. Pretty consistent in that regard.

    Okay I'll keep up with them.

    What's your favourite plant?

    I have an idea of having all of my stories belong to the same mythology but not the same world. So they may have different names, but all of the Gods are the same. I'll check it out though. I really need to do some reading today.

    Cactus, of course.
