- "The Sea of Tears shall be secret no longer, and henceforth it shall be known as the Sea of Laugter!"
The Sea of Laughter, formerly known as the Sea of Tears, is a body of water located in Fillory.
Prior to becoming a Queen of Fillory, Jane Chatwin was forced to undergo a series of absurd and seemingly impossible trials in order to prove herself as a Queen. The last trial involved unveiling the secret Sea of Tears, a body of water associated with Merfolk, and the location was renamed the "Sea of Laughter" by Ember. This was one of the stories Christopher Plover included from his notes of the Chatwin's stories about Fillory, which he later included in the fourth book of his Fillory and Further series, A Secret Sea.
