They built a train track over the Alps to connect Vienna and Venice. They built these tracks even before there was a train in existence that could make the trip. They built it because they knew some day, the train would come.
Simon um… why?
The Mage Sister Because this website is like those train tracks, and the publisher is the train. I built the website before I had a publisher for the book, but I know that one day, I will.
Simon What does that have to do with trains?
The Mage Sister It’s not about trains.
Simon Then why are we talking about trains?
Nathan Honestly, Simon! Clearly it’s an allegory. What she’s really talking about is snow.
Jahx Not an allegory. It’s a metaphor! And she’s clearly talking about climbing mountains!
Nathan I said allegory and I meant allegory. And it’s not about mountain climbing, it’s about ice and snow.
Cullen I think it’s a simile about trees.
Jahx It’s about the struggle of an uphill climb, and having faith that you’ll make it!
Nathan No, it’s about being left out in the cold and knowing there’ll be a train along any minute!
Cullen No, trees are sharp and pointy! It’s about sharp, pointy trees.
The Mage Sister You guys are weird.
