    So we now know what the maids are best at! Hot beverages and awkward tension!

  • Afrodiseum

    Ask for coffee and ye shall receive. :)

  • Sarah

    She could possibly never see her family again and she gripes about pre-20th century inconveniences?

    • Marvelous TK

      Clearly you have never experienced mornings before. As someone who unfortunately has, let me assure you that they are horrid and whatever else is going on in your life, everything that’s not directly related to you at that moment can go to hell. Because mornings won’t care about you, so you can’t afford to care about anything but you.

      … My money’s on, if all seven Deadlies are released near Widdershins, it’s eternal morning – as morning is a sin greater than all of them.

      • Early mornings are one thing. 3am is the middle of the night!

    • Sanjay Merchant

      For all you know, the interrupted statement was going to be “No calling mom and dad to say hi”.

      Also, she probably still expects to get out of this situation, just as soon as she figures out how. She can live without talking to her family until then, but being deprived of her normal morning/wake up routine is pretty immediately uncomfortable.

    • She’s a teenager.

    So the grannies only do the laundry the first day you arrive, not after that? We still don’t know where the maids come from.

    There’s our mystery maid again!

    • Barium-Sulfate

      I think her name is Nora Fenton.

      • rainycity1

        Yes, and she seems nice. But is there anything to her strong resemblance to the Barber sisters? If I’m reading things right, there’s still a 4th sister (and a brother!) that we haven’t met yet… ;-)

        • rainycity1

          Ach, looks like Ms. Ashwin and I count sisters differently*. Rumor has it that Kate’s Tumblr blog tells us that we’ve met all the sisters. (nods to Shelby!)

          *I* grew up with three sisters as well; there were four girls in our family.

  • Not to take the conversation down any rabbit holes or whatever, but does Alexa like boys or girls?

    • Sanjay Merchant

      For that matter does, Harry or Sidney or Mal or Gladys or Ethan?

      • If/when a character’s orientation is relevant, it’ll be obvious :)

        • Sanjay Merchant

          I actually meant my question rhetorically. :-P

          • I know, it was basically answering the first person really!

        • Del

          Oy….. and probably when the story is about Lust.

  • Monochrome

    Is the maid the literal best maid/waitress?
