SPOILER ALERT (Hopefully the Last) for TTWP

Heavily Pregnant, She Nevertheless Survives! Self is referring to Savine da Glotka, who began this book 600 pages ago having a pea in her belly, and after all this time, STILL HAS NOT GIVEN BIRTH but escapes from the battlefield with two loyal servants (all this while HUGELY pregnant — you’d think that would attract some attention)

How come SHE gets to keep her servants? Any servants self had (All in the Philippines; she’s an American now) would never stick with her if she wasn’t, you know, the daughter of so-and-so.

Savine is so sorry, so legitimately sorry! She has the brilliant idea of offering her life in exchange for her husband’s, which of course is moot because the King, who decides fates, is still madly in love with her (even though she is his sister)

UGH! Cersei/Jamie Lannister redux!

Leo, go look for handsome Jurand and hopefully there are enough pieces of you left to still have a satisfying life with him.

A scene that self absolutely abhors takes place: Savine, hugely pregnant (HOW LONG do babies take to be born? Here’s the answer for you: 600 pages), meets King Orso, whereupon he finds himself overtaken with — FEELINGS. Because he’s still in love with her! Oh, is that a gash on your head, dear lady? Oh my love, how shattered I would be if you actually died! Kiss kiss.

I look to see how long this scene lasts. Oh, a whole chapter. GAH.

“Were you a part of this?” King Orso asks.

“Yes,” whispers Savine.

Then: “I love you, I still fucking love you.”

AARGH! Get out, the both of you! You deserve each other!

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
