FOR REALS DON'T READ THIS UNTIL YOU'VE READ THE BOOKS.

Spoiler
Ok I'm sorry. I tried to wait. I really did. But I just got the ARC of EE5 and I HAD to share my thoughts. I know that there are a few of you who will also have gotten it.

Firstly: PIKE YOU FUCKING BASTARD.

Secondly: BOOKS. You are so freaking perceptive it's not funny.

I'll add more as I go along.

I didn't click on the spoiler thing...

...I'm still traumatized from Dumbledore...

...but BY GOLLY GOSH Sweartoad, if there's a picture of something bathtub related under that spoiler tab WE'RE HAVING WORDS!!

(depending on what the picture is, of course)

@Sweartoad, in regards to your spoilers:
Spoiler
OMG I KNOW.  When she flashes on that image of him as a sandy haired little boy... I was incensed.

AHHHHHHH I KNOW RIGHT? I almost melted into a puddle at first, and then I got to
Spoiler
the 'romantic stranger'
and died all over again!

Also
Spoiler
When he asks her if she has a mental filing cabinet or makes it up on the spot
was to die for!

Oh, and I loved the
Spoiler
bathtub
kudos that went out. It'll be a nice Easter egg for forums members and I found it fall-off-the-couch hilarious!
Once you've made sure that the signal gets through
There's one final thing that I want you to do
Put me where I'll see stars, so that I can see you
And I'll soar like a leaf on the wind

YES YES YES!!!   
Spoiler
And when pole vaults?  Holy crap that was amazing!
Spoiler
When she described how thin he was and the state of his boots from running all the way after her...Hell, it was basically all of Ch 13.
  I was like a little puddle on the floor trying to read.
Spoiler
And his reaction when she asks him if he's angry with her. So much emoting!

But seriously, WHAT was up with
Spoiler
him walking out when she lifted her face with for a kiss in the cave?!  Was he just afraid he wouldn't be able to stop at a kiss? (at least at that moment)

 
Spoiler
I totally skipped over Mal until I got to the part where they left Pabov tied up.  I HAD to see him find her first!  Have gone back and read it the right way now, though.

Spoiler
I think he was being careful because of everything she went through. He doesn't know exactly what happened to her and was probably afraid of doing something that would traumatize her more. Remember, he does say he studied psychology

But
Spoiler
he looked at her like he was expecting that kiss the next day!  And he had that satisfied gleam in his eyes.  Which I just loved, btw.  It was so damn cute of him.  *sigh*
Yeah, that's right.  I got a kiss.  Booyah!

Bwahaha.
Spoiler
But it certainly wasn't the sweeping, 'OMG you're safe and mostly intact, let's do it on the cave floor!' kiss that the setup would pretty much demand if they kissed ;)

I did like the cute, almost little kid pride at getting a kiss on the cheek. A-DOR-A-BLE!

Three words that might very well crash the internet:

Spoiler
"Come to me."

I LIKE TO DIED when I read that the first time. (Chapter 14...hurry up, get there).  I'm really glad I can fangirl over that with more people. I think Becca got tired of me going *sigh* LOL.

Impossible man  :D
"Should we take their clothes?"
"To what end?"
"....Pockets?"

From the same conversation:

Spoiler
"That I was unwilling to let someone else have you."

Oh. My. GOD.

YES!  SO MUCH YES! 
And
Spoiler
Sicarius's eyes were half-lidded as he gazed back at her.  "That I was unwilling to let someone else have you."
I just about fainted when he said that.  (yes, that's a real spoiler, try not to read it!  Or do, and drive yourselves crazy.  8) )

Do you remember when she (under a cut because it refers to the spoiler)
Spoiler
kissed Books (and I think Akstyr?) on the cheek for doing something, and he was just standing there glaring?  I always thought he was jealous of those kisses then, and maybe that added a little bit to his smugness there.
