travelbug said: I think you can deny recognition and break the link between the souls and delay it.
But there has never been a story yet where the recognition actually goes away.
I had interpreted it as Ember resisting or defying the connection as opposed to Recognition going away...Leetah seemed to do for several days without obvious illness to her and Cutter? Maybe because Leetah's a healer? I don't even want to contemplate that they can make it go away without consummation.
Then I think about Strongbow "rejecting" Timmain. I have always wondered what he was rejecting, I know there's been a lot of discussion about that. I felt like he was rejecting the sharing of soul names, not in a recognition sense, but in a strong sharing sense? That rambling went off topic a little at the end!
