    Amun knows something is up. She’s survived a visit to his realm and can see into it, plus survived drinking his mother’s lifeblood.

    She’s marked by both is sister Dyetra and Aniya (stepsister?).

    Two other gods/spirits have taken an interest in her and now Amun’s stuck trying to figure out what they’re up to.

    I’m presuming she drank the water during the ritual of purification. Checking back, she doesn’t mention drinking it but she does have some cupped in her hand on page 10, so maybe thats it… Then again, she mentioned seeing the spirit lights when she approached the basin of Nou… was she supposed to? Had she drunk it earlier, is that par of how she’s soul sundered but not insane?

    Hmm, did Amun just finally send her fathers spirit to the afterlife?

      Nah, looks like he’s talking to Julea – after all, her father’s time already came and went.

        Exactly correct.

          That doesn’t make sense. She’s already been to the shadowlands and back, as thanks to the Water those lands can not keep her. Nor does it follow the conversation for it to be her they are talking about leaving. Finally it’s her father, the wander that seams to be in a panic about the binding. Whatever the binding is.

            She hasn’t been there. She’s been on the edge. Like stepping a toe into the lake. Right now she’s dunking her head and very nearly falling in.

            Esse is the nearby village. If I could show him pointing somewhere out of frame it would be helpful, but he has no body.

            Heh, for the pointing, I have this sudden image in my head of the Spirit lights forming an arrow XD

            I looks like the first time she stepped close to Amun’s realm, it was almost like an eviction of her soul or spirit from her body by her father taking it over. This time the body is breaking down and effectively becoming unusable as a vessel for any soul or spirit.

            Sort of the difference between getting kicked from your home temporarily and then moving back in compared to simply burning the home down… there’s no longer a home to come back to.

    I suspect events will keep Amun from carrying out that decision. Already too many have invested in her to allow her life to fade just yet.

    Amun:”I will regret your passing, but your time has come.” *bbbrrring, bbbrrring* “Hmm?” *pulls out phone* “Hello sir. Yes sir I’m with her now. Ok… uhuh… yes sir, but her wounds. What do you mean journey. Why do you guys never bother to involve me in your plans. Alright sir.” *hangs up* “Ok you’re good this time.”

    Don’t kill yourself over your personal projects. We will wait faithfully :-)

    If you ever get a chance to consider a move to Europe, give it some thought. Healthcare is generally pretty amazing. Staying off work for a week or two is basically no issue at all, and you don’t need to pay the physician, either.

      Thank you for your loyalty and patience.

      I wish I could just move there. Unless I become a citizen, I’d have to carry my own insurance as a resident alien. A tourist visa does have coverage from the state they’re visiting, but if I’m to work and live there I’d have to have my own. The route to becoming a citizen in France is a bit difficult for an American unless I can marry in. I assume it’s not much different from country to country. I had a fiancee there so I did my research.
