Day in Fandom History: October 15…
Ice King travels down to Marceline’s house to create some music in hopes for him to get some princesses, but Marceline has to deal with the emotional pain during the Ice King’s visit to her home. “I Remember You” premiered on this day, 10 Years Ago.
"so you're telling me that if the students each gave them a sock, all the house elves at hogwarts would be free? oh, it's anus dumblebore who has to give em a sock? well, what if he dies? what then? suppose there'd be a prime window."
Are they pulling the sword out of Utena? Oh, I love that.
And I love that their positions are reversed and Anthy says “grant us the power to bring the world revolution”, with that line mentioning both of them, rather than just Utena.
Bears have little experience being inside and don’t know rudimentary things like how to sit in a chair or not to completely wreck the place with their enormous and powerful bodies. The bear proceeded to completely wreck the place with its enormous and powerful body.
Three Books One Plot and ✨You✨
Now that our first season has drawn to a close we wanted to share some fun stats with you guys! This is information that was actually cut from our finale for time but, since we're so excited about it, we still wanted to share it with you all. It's been a hell of a year and, like we mentioned in our finale, we never expected for anyone besides us and a small group of friends/acquaintances to care so much about this silly project. But a lot of you cared. More than we thought would.
In fact, we had listeners from 50 countries over the course of the past year. This is what our top ten looks like, at a glance:
Shout out to anyone listening from any of these countries, and extra shout out to anyone listening from any other place in the world, too. (All 40 other countries.) As far as the US goes we weren't too shocked by our top five (California, New York, Pennsylvania, Florida, and Texas are also the top five most populated states) but we were excited to see listeners in forty-five states plus DC. So, to our friends in Alabama, Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont, and Wyoming... we'll get you guys next season. 😉
(more information and fun statistics under the cut!)
What was doubly shocking to us was the idea that not only would we have such a broad reach but that we would chart anywhere. Over the last year we have charted on the book charts of eleven different countries, including the United States. Which is fucking bonkers.
Beyond that, we had some more funky statistics we wanted to share! We truly did give you non-Spotify listeners the short end of the stick sometimes but hey, don't blame us. Blame the apps you listen to and like, maybe bully them on Twitter into providing polls and questions like Spotify does. If that doesn't work, you can always join in on our polls here on Tumblr during the interim between episodes. Next season we'll also be encouraging you guys to answer our episode questions in our ask box here, too. Anything to get more hilarious gems from you since you guys are like, really fucking funny.
But as far as platforms go, here's our breakdown:
If you listen on a different app like Pocket Casts or any other podcast platform, please let us know! We'd love to know how you guys are tuning in.
Not to direct our full attention back toward Spotify for a moment (like we love to do) but here were some fun Spotify-centric stats that are worth mentioning. Mainly because the age statistics make us laugh.
Shoutout to any young-young Gen X-ers that listen and aren't in the 45-59 age range. You guys are the true champions and we adore the fact that your peers just do not fuck with us. Also, in the unlikely chance that any of the less than one percent of Boomers (affectionate) that listen to us also happen to follow us on here, please message us so we can give you the key to a city or something. Because we love you. Sorry that supercentenarian Edward kept being weird and rude about your generation. He sucks for that.
To conclude this fun and informative little wrap-up post I wanted to give the biggest, loudest, and most inappropriate shout out to all our sexy listeners who gave Three Books One Plot a rating or a review!
On Apple Podcasts, we received 8 reviews and 17 ratings, giving us an average of 4.6 stars!
On Spotify, we received 63 ratings, giving us a 4.9 star average!
This fall will bring a new season with a new book, new characters, and new guests. But don't worry, there'll be just as many jokes, bits, ill-advised drinking game rules, and sex tape titles that make G rejoice and Shannon sigh in half-reluctant compliance as before.
We wanted to give a super-special thanks to all of you who have tuned in, and we're so excited to see you guys again for Season Two in September!
