They make us love??? posted 12 Mar 2006, 02:03 by Sjerdan, Commoner

Hello, I'm new to the site and love it. I've read through a lot of the post, but haven't seen anything regarding the line, "They make us love." This perplexed me. Just curious what you all thought about it. Oh, and this site rocks! :o The books, of course, rock! :D Man I cannot wait until A-E. view post

Maybe Cnaiur means that they make us love [i]them[/i]. At least these two of the dunyain make powerful and not so powerful people love they can be manipulated to help them complete their mission. That's what i think view post

He is referring to the fact that Moenghus made Cnaiur fall in love with him. view post

I thought it was in reference to Akka at the end of TTT. Doesn't he lament that the gods make him love? Maybe the phrase is used multiple times in the series and I didn't pick it up. view post

I believe Cnaiur was talking about Moenghus and Kellhus or Dunyain in general. I don't think his upbringing as a Scylvandi warrior had much love in it. He felt this foreign emotion through both Moenghus and Kellhus. That's what I got. I already lent the book out so I can't refer to it but I think Cnaiur is scared of his emotions. view post

The issue raised here is much deeper than Cnaiur's lack of love as a child. Think about the statement again: "They make us love them." The important word here is make. Is there anything more horrific? First Cnaiur, and then Achamian, and then Esmenet realize that they mean exactly nothing to the Moenghus (Cnaiur) or Kellhus (Achamian and Esmenet), but they still can't stop loving them. No matter how hard they try the three of them are forever attached to their Dunyain (if Cnaiur is still alive that is). What we have here is yet another similarity between Dunyain and the Consult. Both [b:vk9jp1kb]make[/b:vk9jp1kb] others love them.
