This week on WAPIN7...

We wanted it to be on. We waited for it to be on. Now it's actually on, and it might be better if it was off.

Can we change our minds?

Last week we were left desperately hanging from the literary cliff, and this week we're boldly letting go. Join us as we descend through the soup-thick fog in search of answers… Who is dead? Who is alive? Have we completely lost? Did Daddy ever make it to Disneyland? And most importantly of all - what happened to that small pond mentioned briefly several weeks ago?

We'll be answering some, all, or none of these questions this week. Don't miss it.

///

We'll be back with Book 4 on September 2nd, between now and then though we'll of course have a couple of special episodes for you:

August 12th - New book special
August 26th - Book 3 Catch-up Quiz

Have a great few weeks & we'll see you then! xx

  • 57. It Really, Really, Really Is On!

    Where once there was fog, or maybe dense mist, but probably definitely fog, now there lies smoke.

    Like an incredibly dense super-fog, the smoke hides all it touches...

    Has the averagely tall Napoleon's dastardly plan paid off? Is everyone dead? Will the Russians find their way out of this hyper-fog-mist-smoke-hybrid?

    We'd be lying if we said it wasn't on.

    It really, really, really is.

    We're really, really, really sure now.

  • 56. Gloves Off!

    The fog was thick. Thick as a thick, thick bowl of fog soup.

    Everywhere young Nicky Rostov turned he saw the dense white of the horrible thick fog. It was like being inside a pie made entirely of milk.

    "Hello!" he shouted "It's me Nicky Rostov is anyone there?" The thick, milky fog consumed his words like a pack of pigeons around an unlucky chip.

    "I'm here to fight the French... I'm not scared" he shouted, a little too loudly.

    Just then, through the thick horrible milky white fog, he saw an even whiter thing, white and bright as if a lighthouse were sailing across the battlefield.

    As Nicky drew closer he saw it for what it was - a single, impeccably white glove, drifting down from the high cliff.

    How did this glove get here? Where were the French? WHY was there so much fog?!

  • 55. Oh Boy, It Is Really On Now

    Yeah we're doing this again...

    We're sorry, OK!

    We were so sure it was on before and so we said it was "on" but then it wasn't "on" and then this episode happened and at the end we were both like, "oh boy, it really is on now!"

    To be honest we don't know if it's on.

    We hope it's on.

    We're so sorry if it turns out that next week it isn't actually on.

  • 54. Oh It’s On!

    Nicky Rostov, aged 20½
    16th November 1805
    On a road near Wachau, Austria

    Diary - I've simply got to tell you! Something incredible has happened. Are you ready??? I actually MET the emperor today, the real Russian emperor, and it was A-MAZ-ING!!!

    Here's what happened... I was standing around on the road feeling MAD about not getting to do any fighting when suddenly everything slowed down. Everyone was quiet, and it was like the air was ON FIRE.

    That's when I saw him. He was Majestic. Amazing. Majazing! Haha - it was like he was surrounded in white light and was hovering down the street like a big beautiful hummingbird without any wings. When he spoke it was like eating really amazing honey or just a whole LUMP of sugar!

    And diary, I DONT KNOW HOW TO TELL YOU THIS, but he LOOKED into my EYES.

    I nearly DIED.

    OK it's my bedtime now, I'll tell you more tomorrow. I'm going to dream about the emperor! I love him!


  • 53. Boris Wonka and The Chocolate Barracks

    We've got a perfect chapter for you
    Oompa loompa doompety doris
    This one is sort of all about Boris

    What do you get when you want a sweet job?
    Stories of Emperor's dropping their stuff

    We don't like the look of it

  • 52. Inside The Letterbox

    These days we think nothing of receiving a sick gif from great grandma Bing, or a wicked TikTok from second uncle Pepe. There's no limit to the number of dope memes pinging live into our notification zones, hot and fresh from friends far and wide.

    Back in 1805 though, Tikhon was the closest you came to TikTok, and if you wanted to see Count Rostov doing that funny dance, you had to knock on his door.

    But that doesn't mean they had no excitement whatsoever, far from it. Join us this week as we pack ourselves into an envelope, pop on a stamp, and jump head first into the famous Russian mail system in search of high entertainment.

    We'll be spanning the length and breadth of Europe delivering crucial information, scintillating gossip, and a double dollop of cold hard cash.

    You can tweet-bomb that Office meme later - for now, listen to this episode.

  • 51. The Mary Marry Mystery Moment.

    Might Mary maybe marry?

    And Anatole... an angel awaits?

    Naysayer Nasty Nick needs "NO!"

    Tikhon turnip turtle train...

    OK, enough of the amazing alliteration. There's mystery aplenty in this week's episode: someone has a tail, there's irrefutable proof of a superpower and Mary's fate is finally fettled, sorry, settled!

    Mary, is it a 'YES!' or a 'NO!"

    You won't believe the answer.

  • 50. Treachery At The Clavichord

    Dearest Listener,

    You are cordially invited to the 1805 FATHER OF THE YEAR awards, recognising some of the most incredible, selfless and thoughtful fathering from the past twelve months. 

    Taking place at the famous Sad Mansion, this year's gala will be an unforgettable event - with catering from the renowned McTurtle Food Corp™, music from the triple platinum Gravy Boaters, plus of course the incredibly moving stories from our Father Of The Year Nominees:

    • Prince Vasíli Kurágin - Proud father to three lovely children, Vasíli has spent the year bravely marrying them off for huge amounts of money. His hobbies include riding Disney Land's Dingo Mountain and money. 
    • Prince Nicholas Andreevich 'Nasty Nick' Bolkónski - A decorated army general, bespoke snuff box maker, author, scholar and mathematician, Nick really is the model father to his two wonderful children. Hobbies include powdering wigs and expressing himself with his nose.
    • Tikhon - The world famous circus performer turned PA, he is the bookies' favourite despite not having any children.

    Whoever wins it promises to be an absolutely unmissable event, so you really should not miss it. 

    With anticipation,
    Will & Steve

  • 49. There’s Snow Business Like Sad Business!

    We're back at Sad Mansion and there really is snow way out. It's time to arrange another wedding, so let's really dial up the sad-ometer!

    Nasty Nick is back and he is positively piste! His angry sneezes are seconds away from causing an avalanche of misery. Will he succeed in making everyone in the house cry? Will he pull off the biggest prank of the entire book? Will Marry smile? Will Vasili inch closer to Space Mountain? Will the pretty pregnant Princess start a successful fashion blog?

    There's only one way to find out...

    Grab the shovel.
