Life is one fool thing after another
Whereas love is two fool things after each other.
Fool love

First of all, I've really missed the weekly Fool trivia questions even though I'm not an expert (I've only read the books once!).. It was lovely to read the questions & answers nevertheless.

I also wish to ask you all a question I've been thinking about a lot lately. Why do you love Fool so much? What makes him so adorable? I admit he is the most wonderful character I've ever seen in any books. And I have quite deep ponderings on why he captured my heart like he did. I'll write about my ponderings later but I'd love to hear your opinions & thoughts on it. What makes Fool so special? (Except for that he's Fool ;))

Let me count the ways...:)

Ok the first thing is I love queering (in the proper sense of the word) of sexuality/gender - it's a pathetic addiction:) - but the Fool also has that air of mystery about him. You never quite know what he is, how old he is or what he's capable of - he seems to be really old but he has an innocence to him that makes him seem younger.

Of course there's also the tension between him and Fitz - whether you slash them or not in your own mind I defy anyone to not be entranced by their relationship!:) Without that I don't think the Fool or Fitz's characters would be even a quarter as interesting as they actually are:)

FYI, the fool trivia questions died in a hole because a) my life got really busy, and I kept forgetting to post them and b) there came a time when no one posted answers at all, so I figured you guys were done with 'em. If someone else wants to take up the role of fool trivia master, be my guest. Until then, I'll be brainstorming another idea to keep this community alive.
