Happy Earthsong day! I will admit to some head-shaking when I read your news, but I like the redux-redux. It flows better, and that fight scene is great now!

Less witty banter now, but the best bit disappeared in the first redux anyway ("No, but I think you're pretty stupid to fall for it again.")

Re. amethyst tree commentary: the original original tree that we remember had green leaves hanging down off willow fronds, not amethyst ones.

Re. Skogul's foreshadowing commentary: it does make sense that she'd refer to Nanashi as having "killed" Richard given what you've told us before about time on Earthsong: soulstone bearers do not age there, and when their stone is pierced by the Siderean swords they return to the exact time and place they left (for example, Tristram would go back to the dungeon with Lucy's blood on his shirt, and Felucca would be back in the path of a mighty mace strike. Neither would be much fun, but Fel probably has it worse there). So, by returning Richard to a mortal life of aging and decay, Nanashi robbed him of his (near-)immortality.

Oh, Nanashi... A kindness or a cruelty on your part?

Methinks a not-very-well-thought-out cruelty, because if he truly is a spineless, selfish man to the core, he now no longer has any reason to help, and at least one reason to hinder their efforts.

At which point she can always skewer him, but these kinds of things have a tendency to backfire regardless.

Ah, you guys are the best. Thanks for all the nice comments about the redux redux!

I do have a kind of sad announcement to make though:

In case you didn't see it in the General Discussion area.
