Anne McCaffrey's biggest failure was actually that the whole series wasn't the Dragonriders and Harpers trying to learn fucking COBOL. The part where they're trying to learn COBOL was in fact really short.

Why does Florida get to vote for the candidate who sacrificed-a-goat-to-the-god-of-the-wilderness whereas Kentucky is stuck voting for the candidate who Fark-dot-com

manyslinkingfrights replied to your post: Anne McCaffrey’s biggest failure was actually that…

wait was that shit in… The White Dragon? Something with the found spacecraft had the White Dragon’s dragon in it. The only other part I remember is that in The White Dragon there’s a line about plowed fields & sun on some choice buttock (I was 11)
It was in All The Weyrs Of Pern, I think? I can’t remember which book, the later ones are a mess and all blend together and McCaffrey cannot remember a single fucking thing from the earlier books.

But yes, Ruth goes to the spaceship, but the most important thing in there is the AI named AIVAS who teaches Menolly and the other kids how to code for some reason.

There was no sane explanation for this, just, the magic fucking AI wants Menolly to learn fucking COBOL. Filthy liberal arts institution that is Harper Hall has failed her.

“Bard” is not a saleable skillset, Menolly. LEARN TO CODE

#why did this happen #this sort of shit is why i just accept homestuck's bullshit honestly #series starts out with high-fantasy story about girl becoming a bard #a few books later: COBOL #fine! #fucking fine #i was conditioned at a young age to accept that no serial narrative was ever going to maintain thematic/tonal consistency for >15pun

She answers every question anyone ever asks of her until "When It Rains" - but no one but Steven has ever answered a question for her.

(He has answered all of them. At least one question answered, every single conversation.)

The only exception to the rule:

PERIDOT: don't you gems have anything better to do than annoy me???


Peridot has also never actually asked a non-rhetorical question of anyone but Steven - with, again, one purple exception:

AMETHYST: is it like a big hunk of granola

PERIDOT: what's granola???

Steven really is much more useful than those clods.
