The One With the Sidekicks

We started out thinking we'd just examine two of the sidekicks in this trilogy (Hancock and Domenico), but we wound up examining others as well! We touch on Miriam, Hamish, Sarah and some of the situations they deal with. We contend that the secondary characters are the ultimate drivers of the story! Also, stay tuned for later in this episode; Save It For The Show segment features a chat with Nikki Gastineau of All Souls Witchy Women. go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/40Join us on Patreon (as little...

Bonus Edition - Exploring the World of All Souls

6/7/2018
More
The World of All Souls - a general discussion Just like the title states, we explore The World of All Souls together in this bonus episode of Daemons Discuss! This episode is best described as "Daemons unplugged," because we opted out of our usual production format. Instead, we leaned into a more straight-forward conversation containing our thoughts on the material contained in this official guide to the All Souls Trilogy. WARNING! There are spoilers! We discuss our impressions of The...

SON ch 16 After reveling in the knowledge of the expansion of their family, Matthew Clairmont considers what it will take to keep his wife occupied and happy in her new century.

SON ch 13-14 Beginnings, endings -- change. Boy, do we get a dose of all three throughout these two chapters! We watch Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont take their first steps as an "official" husband and wife team. We spend some quality moments with Philippe de Clermont before we bid him farewell. Then we are launched to present-day Sept-Tours in the company of Sarah Bishop, Emily Mather and Ysabeau de Clermont by an anomaly -- Philippe's note to Ysabeau. It did the reader good, because...

SON ch 12 Here it is folks, the moment we've been waiting for! Finally, the chance to actually title an episode this, after some off-handed remarks in another episode! In all seriousness, this is the one with family planning, the one with the temple, the one with the feasts, the one with La Robe, the one with financial independence, the one with wedding, and the one where Matthew and Diana become one. The "D" is for Daemons, you dirty ditch dwellers! 😜 go.DaemonsDiscuss.com/36Join us on...

The One With Wordplay, Swordplay, and Bloodplay

SON ch 11 Well, the title tells the story. Wordplay: Matthew Clairmont and Philippe de Clermont have words to throw at each other! Sharp and pointed like the swords they pick up later, we learn how they interact in conflict. Swordplay: We watch how the words are interchangeable with daggers and swords in the hay barn. Bloodplay: We find out for the first time in this series that Matthew has an affliction -- blood rage. Diana Bishop is also made Philippe's blood-sworn daughter. What does...

Matthew Clairmont is absolutely puny according to Philippe de Clermont. He's not been taking care of himself properly, and needs excercise! While the Philippe takes care of his puny son, Diana Bishop's tasks are decidedly NOT puny. She needs to learn how to manage a staff, the household, her uncertainty, HER LIFE! We begin with a brooding moody vampire in the antichambers, and end with a facination with the whole gambit our witch is being set up for. She's playing for keeps, and Philippe...

SON ch 8 Off to Sept-Tours we go! 1590's style! As we travel with Matthew Clairmont and Diana Bishop, we make a few stops. With each step closer to Philippe de Clermont, we not only wonder about him, but we start to really think about who Matthew de Clermont is! Diana has a long road of discovery ahead of her. A long(ish) episode, but you won't want to miss a bit of it, because after our chapter discussion, we have a chat about All Souls Con 2018 with Laura Ventura! Philadelphia, here we...

SON ch 7 Creepers be a-creepin'! We examine the first anomaly that crops up in Shadow of Night. Who is Rima Jaén, and what has she done with the normal cast and crew?! Where is this place she works? How does this play in the big picture?! Our questions breed more questions, and in the end we walk away still scratching our heads a little, thoroughly disgusted with Daniel, perplexed (but thrilled) about our international community, eagerly anticipating the TV show, and royally pissed off at...

SON ch 5 & 6 Let's talk about the secrets and surprises we receive in this chapter, shall we?! As part of her elucidation lessons directed by George Chapman, Diana is reading the Faerie Queene (by Edmund Spenser). The boys are discussing philosophy, playing dice, arguing about astronomy and mathematics when all of a sudden, BAM! Enter Gallowglass and his pal Hancock. They've got some news; a lot of it, actually! It turns out that Widow Beaton's visit didn't end easily as Matthew thought...

SON ch 3 & 4 Matthew Clairmont and Diana Bishop get around to acknowledging the need for some witchy guidance. The intent: to return back to the present time armed with Diana's new magic, ward off the Congregation, and finally discover the secrets of Ashmole 782. Matthew's friends (The School of Night), offer help by coming up with elaborate stories to explain away her differences. Françoise tries to come to Diana's aid by calling for some gloves and shoes to be made. Matthew summons the...

SON - ch 1 & 2 The reader, like the collective heap of vampire and witch, is splashed into 1590, and it seems the temperature not as quite as comfortable as we had hoped! In this episode, we explore the first two chapters of our favorite book in this series, Shadow of Night. We find that Matthew Clairmont's past is not quite a tidy hole that Diana Bishop's future could easily squeeze into! Join us as we meet Kit, George, Thomas, Henry and Walter (aka The School of...

We welcome back our favorite vampire scientist, Shelli! We ply her with more questions, and then drift into our reflections of our latest re-read of A Discovery of Witches. Beware! We subject-hop like crazy in this one. Even maybe do a bit of time-walking with 80's heartthrobs. The episode begins with an attempt to balance some daemons with a vampire, and ends with declarations of love for heretical opinions. Make sure your restraints are fastened. Enjoy the...

But first we observe Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont meeting Sophie and Nathaniel, and contemplate what their sudden unexpected appearance might mean. Later on, Hamish completes the conventicle, and with his leadership, the Bishop-Clairmont gang lay out a road map for their collective futures. From Sarah's famous scrambled eggs to quiet vows taken in a (mostly) empty house, this episode...

Description: ADOW ch 35-38 Settled into the Bishop house, Matthew Clairmont and Diana Bishop are faced with many problems: avoiding the wrath of the congregation, making sense of Diana's magical limitations, and the figuring out the meaning of the wayward page from Ashmole 782 that the house delivered to them in chapter 34. We soon realize that the pairing of Diana Bishop and Matthew Clairmont may not just be fate -- it could be necessary for species survival! In the midst of this...
