Needle in a haystack

Somebody was talking about Robin Hobb recently in their lj. I have the notion that Somebody is Somebody Else's lj friend, though she could be one of mine, since I also encounter mine on other people's lists. It's not who I thought it was- Sabina's RL friend Erin- nor any of the usual suspects here (though pellaz, for some reason I can't read your lj entries except on my fl, which makes checking hard.) Someone was saying something to the really fuzzily recalled effect that Hobb's novels suggest a different kind of being, not in their characters but in the worlds themselves. If this rings bells with anybody, please tell me who it was. I hate these half-remembered things that one might in fact have hallucinated or dreamed.
