Random Strike thought - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003
Random Strike thought
In honor of the release date for the next Cormoran Strike being released (Oct 20):

The new office assistant (while Robin trains as a full investigator) should be Al Rokeby by the end, after a book full of dithering about it, and he should stay as the third team member. I mean, think about it. The biggest problem Robin was running into was not being able to get through to some of the fancy people, but Al already knows them. Plus, automatic angst for Strike (leaning on connections forged through his father, the horror!). And more Al. I liked Al.

I like Al too! I think you have a great idea!

Robin likes Al, too, which is handy!

Of course, given that this is Jodemort, he's as likely to die horribly as become his brother's receptionist...

I don't really remember Al Rokeby, I won't lie (read the first book twice and the second book once), but if press releases say that Robin's finally getting her due as a full PI and there'll be another office assistant, I am so very much for that no matter what, because the current awkward stasis of the Robin-Cormoran dynamic seriously needs outside jostling. Not necessarily toward romance with each other, no matter how much everyone wants it; I'm just saying, if things stay as they are for long, it's going to decay into soap-opera levels of aggravation.
