Callback to something that happened earlier…
Sheesh, Yeagar. You forgot about Nodwick again. =_= Figures.
I swear, if this is another Chekhov’s Gun that we forgot about…
Three cheers for insectivorous dragons. Yay Orville!
Its Orwell remember his favorite food are now flies instead of henchmen
And now either Orwell eats him and nothing bad happens… or he dies and has his body taken over.
I was hoping we’d see Nodwick The Frog Yo-Yo again, but I suppose it’s just Orwell (seen doing the same thing on page 1479).
I wonder if there’s a teensy little bit of god-goo still in BaphuFly … and what it does to a dragon’s rapid metabolism?
Either Orwell or there’s a flying amphibian in the area.
Or how do the fairies eat? he suddenly wonders.
If this is the end of Baph, then I’d be incredibly impressed. Some writers keep their villains around despite all odds to the point of being cliche. I understand that some characters are just too good to waste, but some stories have them coming back and never being fully defeated to the point of being ridiculous. As far as stories are about conflicts and most hero vs. villain tales involve epic clashing, seeing a villain finally and completely bite the dust would just be refreshing.
Read the malazan book of the fallen sometime. Doesn’t know the meaning of the term perma-death… although, credit where due, it’s always pulled off in a way that makes perfect sense in context. ‘Sides, once you hit god-tier (parenthetically speaking) dying darn well OUGHT to be optional, or whats the point?
It’s not only that it makes sense in contact – it’s that being dead just doesn’t mean all that much in the Malazan setting. Dying just means your soul doesn’t have a body anymore – but you’re free to hang around as a ghost, or to find yourself a new one (whether by possession, magic, or divine meddling).
Shurq Elalle is the perfect example of that – she’s effectively possessing her own preserved corpse, and by all evidence having a much better time than she had while alive.
It adds up to the same thing, I figure.
