Nightsea said: I think it is Cutter and Skywise who have always embodied this rift in the past. (And maybe that was biographical in bits I dunno.) The stay together or not theme...how can two separate yet connected deeply beings each want opposite goals and fully support one another as they "share the same wine from different cups"? Being alive, desiring connection, yet also having other passions... ah that's a riddle to solve.
I love this! Great insight there.
BTW- No, that can't be Aurek- unless the Jink stories are invalid. It's Tyldak.
