“The blessed martyr to Stein’s coming son or daughter or melon had spoken.”

Oh that’s just mean! (And great foreshadowing)

I forgot about Belsar! What a good boy. :D

He did not understand until Kraaia howled, “Mad dog!” and whirled about to run back into the study. She only succeeded in ramming her blond head into Egelric’s stomach as she attempted to charge.

Oh god, the mental image is hilarious.

I would claim that maybe Sela’s personality was similar to Egelric’s. She was a poet so she must’ve had her dark moods.

Wow, Acekay I never really paid attention to the similarities between Eithne and Sela, you’re so right.

You know, I’ve been thinking a lot about Eithne, and the similarities and contrasts between her and Sela. Both were in relationships with beings from other races, both unwillingly had to leave their families because of their husbands, and both died too young.

Course, the differences between them are so contrasting. I would say Sela had more power in her relationship than Eithne did. Sela’s situation was different because she and Egelric had a “courtship” of sorts at first. After their fated first encounter, she willingly continues to meet up with him. With Eithne, she dreaded Cian’s visits.

I would even claim their feelings for their husbands were similar in how mysterious they were. With Sela of course, her relationship with Egelric was more loving, but as she lost her ability to speak, we never really found how how she felt about him more near the end of her life. And with Eithne, there’s that whole stockholm syndrome going on…

I mean, they both even had younger sisters with whom they were very close with and who deeply missed them!

Agreed. It definitely unsettles me on a deeper level than it used to. A lot of the storylines resonate differently and more deeply.

I agree its definitely compelling and well-​written but I kinda want to cover my eyes while reading their story because I’m scared of what’ll happen to Eithne (who I am REALLY liking this time BTW).

I was thinking about this earlier today actually. I was 1516 when I first read Lothere. When I got this far the first time, I knew there was a reason I didn’t like the Cian/​Eithne pairing but I couldn’t put my finger on why exactly. Its been really interesting reading this again 67 years later. There was so much I missed the first time round because I didn’t understand.

That last picture! If the Eirik sim was an actor and pulled that face, I’d want him to win an Oscar for breaking my heart!

It’s a really compelling relationship, but it’s pretty terrifying, too. Eithne’s coping mechanisms are unsettling to watch.

Couldn’t have said it better myself Kayla!

Although second time round, I’m still not keen on the Cian/​Eithne pairing either. The fact that he raped her in demon form when they first met, his continued attempts to force her to love him, his casting a sleeping spell on her family so he could visit her undisturbed. Ugh.

Having read Lothere’s comment up above, I’m totally shipping Cedric/​Cubby. Team Cudric!

That is a PRIMO “oh Alred!” moment. I always found his relationship with Brit really sweet and touching.

Alred lifted the edge of the blankets high, like a tent, and looked beneath. Then he threw them back so all could see. With that gesture, she understood that he had been prepared to lie for her, and had found it unnecessary.

Oh Alred!

I have to admit to laughing right along with Leofric in this chapter. Oh Cedric! Welcome to the world of teenage hormones! :D

Oh really Paul? You killed another elf’s wife because your own won’t sleep with you? Grow up! There are many ways to deal with that situation. Killing someone wasn’t one of them.

And Osh! I was just commenting on how much I’ve missed you and then this happens? Killing someone because they’re kisor isn’t OK! Stupid elf caste system causing unnecessary problems grumble grumble…

I don’t remember this chapter at all so this came as a bit of a shock! And it’s a real punch in the gut having this come from Surr’s perspective. I wonder how we’d all feel if this was from Paul’s point of view.

I honestly found myself hoping Surr would stab Paul for what he did because in that moment he deserves it. I totally get hunting down the elves that raped Cat but going after their family members as well? That’s really cruel.

Really well written by the way. But damn I am not impressed with Paul right now.

Oh Osh, how I love you and your scrache-​ing!

Unfortunately this kind of emotional roller coaster tends to accompany the Old Man. :(

Poor Hetty crying when she saw him cutting his hair!
