A predatorial trap that makes you unable to move until the creator comes to use you.

Here's to hoping a whole web of Chelseas will never ever happen. That sounds terrifying.

Incidently, lately, among my many half-formed musings, I have been thinking of a Chelsea that is sort of like... a Werespider being. edit: because regular chelsea clearly wasnt creepy enough.

There is a term for that exact thing, actually!

An Internet of Libbies!

I like pantheon or mountain of Olympians.

If Darlings somehow sticks (probably would require the Zevs and lots of superglue), I’m not actually able to think of anything good. In general, given their mathematical natures, a sum might be good.
If they find another late-stage Adarin and decide to change ”Prime“ to a phase name like Ripper, a multiplication of Primes.

A squad of Charlies.
A school of Renées? Wiktionary suggests that teachers come in quizes, which fits her too.
A team of Phils.
A language of Lexis?
I can’t think of anything for the Bell siblings, except a galaxy of Jasons (for male Sophs).

A band of Rippers, a library of Ruperts. Wiktionary [url="http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Glossary_of_collective_nouns_by_subject"]suggests[/url] "A concentration, realm, rattle, clique of kingfishers" .

A garden of Petaals/Ivys is unlikely to be far from the Deck.

It’s extremely unlikely that we’ll see another, but I still need to suggest a crawl of Bars.

It occurred to me tonight that a group of Kolyas is clearly an Absence.

I want to come up with an adorable collective noun for Stevens but I can't think of one.
