    I definitely thought Lily and Fix were a thing. Them being a brother/sister type thing really threw me tbh.

    The question of Bob's parentage is going to bug the ever-living fuck out of me now.

    I suppose it's possible that both parents are immortals - at least now, since mortals can take on mantles that grant immortality.

    I've wondered whether Mab is one of Bob's parents? Would perhaps explain his thing about being scared of her?

    Bob’s past is linked to her but my gut says he’s not her kid. More like the product of Mabs man cheating on her?

    If he is her kid then I expect we’ll find a dynamic where Bob is scared of her because she wants to ‘protect him’ so hard. Like Lea and Harry. Maybe?

    That would certainly be an interesting twist on their relationship. Honestly the list of folk his parents could be is pretty small, given his age. He's at least 600-700 years old I think? Most likely a fair bit older. The number of beings who've been around that long that we've met isn't that substantial.

    The number of beings that have any hints of connection to him is even smaller. If his parent was a Denarian, a god like Hades and Odin, the Gatekeeper or even the Archive, I would expect something to point to their direction instead of getting random revelation.

    I would say that the list of possible parents is rather short:
    - Mab, Titania, Lea because of their age and Bob's connection to Sidhe,
    - maybe Mother Summer because apparently she's a new one,
    - probably not Mother Winter, but she's the last Sidhe that is old enough,
    - Meriln because Bob was able to analyse his work on the Demonreach.

    Odin is technically mortal now, right? Except when he’s not. Maybe he’s one of the parents.

    We're working on the assumption it needs to be one mortal and one immortal right? If so then the mortal has to be one of the fey who wear a mantle, because that means they could have been mortal way back when.

    The idea of Merlin as the father is interesting, but I thought Butcher said we'd already met both parents? We've heard about the original Merlin but we've not met him.

    My bet is Harry is Bobs Dad.

    We know he time travels at some point, we know he’s done it before.

    Extrapolate from that idea: Harry is the original Merlin, timetravelled to the past and bumbling through trying to not fuck up?

    Nah, granddad. Yes time travel but my guess is Bob's 'mother' is going to Bonea.

    Battle ground trailer.

    Also just found out that they were in the script phase for a tv show prior to COVID.

    Do we know when Mab became Mab?

    She and Titania last spoke in 1066. People assume that’s when she went from lady to queen. So a bit before that.

    I can't be the only one who was sad when Mab went from being an ancient and terrible entity to an 11th century peasant girl who got some magic juju. Yes, yes I know that 'the mantle overtakes them', except clearly it doesn't completely?

    Nah, self made Mab is way more terrifying.

    I kind of liked it, everyone comes from somewhere. And I doubt she was some peasant girl, she would've been something significant, which I think makes it a richer story,

    Please tell me thats not an official trailer and is some fan made nonsense? Who the fuck makes a movie trailer for a book? It was awful...

    I kind of like it, I can see how it makes her an interesting character with a cool arc. Building herself up from nothing really emphasises the strength of her character.

    Whether she was peasant or high lady I like it, I could see how it gives her a really cool flavour either way.

    I'm thinking that we'll find out her backstory much more substantially in Battle Grounds, and I'm just hoping Butcher doesn't fuck it up too much with either pop culture references or fan service.
