|What deadlines feel like...or so I gather...|
About a year and a half ago, my relatively new (to me anyway) car decided it didn't want to be a car any more. It decided it'd rather be a cube of metal in a pile of other cubes of metal.
|I think that's my car, 2nd from the left, 3rd one up|
|Yes, its a Leaf. Yes, its electric. No, I don't have range anxiety... much.|
I was very excited to get a Leaf. Sure, maybe its not the sexiest thing out there, but its still pretty darn cool. Not to mention that my car payment is only slightly more than what my monthly gas budget was--basically making it the cheapest car I've ever owned. And though it has caused us to adjust our lives a little, I've loved having it ever since. But I digress. There is a point to telling you this. So lets get to it.
Bree was still working on THE SHADOW PRINCE when I got the Leaf, and saw this acquisition as a perfect opportunity to conduct some research. As you may have learned from reading the first two chapters last week (click here if you still haven't... which, btw- WHY NOT?!), Haden has been graced with the ability to throw lighting as part of his Underlordy powers. So this is the conversation that was had while filling out the paperwork at the dealership:
Salesman: "We're almost done. Do you guys have any questions?"
Bree: "Yes. So, if you--hypothetically--could say, I don''t know... shoot lighting out of your hands... could you use that to instantly charge an electric car?"
Bree: "Hypothetically of course..."
Brick: *totally straight faced and earnest* "Of course."
Salesman: "Um... yeah, I'm sure you could."I paraphrase of course.
So based off this very scientific research, and knowing that Haden both has said power and needs a much sexier car than me, he was given one of the coolest cars on the planet in THE SHADOW PRINCE.
The Tesla Model S
|Holy crap that's a thing a beauty.|
|I can't even....|
|Tesla Model X. Yes, he got both. Really, really not fair.|
