Danny's POV, out of PROMISES TO KEEP:

One of the things I love and despair of about New York City - and Boston and Chicago, for that matter - is how a fatae can walk down the street and people look right at him and don’t react. Maybe a flicker of an eyelid and then it’s “oh, well, okay then” and they move on. In Los Angeles, people gawp. Down South, they do a faint oh dear and turn away. Outside of the cities… it can get ugly. But the big northern cities? Yeah, whatever pal, I get weirder than you in my breakfast cereal.

Oh Danny, I do so have a mad character-crush on you...

Abscond with the classics, I say. And Danny is a child of his time and culture...

A friend of mine, dressed in horns, furry leggings and hoof boots and painted gold (fancy dress wedding guest) did once go into a motorway service station and ask the woman behind the counter, who had her back to him, if they had any yoghourt. She turned round, found him standing in front of her, and without visible expression replied, "Sorry, love, not until Monday."


Then again, after you've worked certain jobs for a while, and I suspect that's one of them, a flaming shrubbery could come in and ask for a cup of joe to go, and you wouldn't blink....

"Why sir, you appear to resemble a large tree."
