posted 15 Jul 2006, 07:07 in The Warrior ProphetWhat about akka and esme. by benwick19, Commoner

i think everyone is missing the point, both Achamian and Esmenet are powerless, powerless before Kellhus, Kellhus does not love Esmenet he simply needed her in case Achamian survived, he didnt know if he would still have control over Achamian so in case Achamian starts getting notions about telling the Mandate Kellhus threatens him with Esmenet and Achamain is forced to choose. Achamian loved and probably still loves Esmenet and Esmenet loved Achamian and Kellhus could have helped Esmenet without bedding her when Achamian left but he didnt because he has no feelings towards anyone, his only goal is getting to his father and everything and everyone else is expendable, no one should be making excuses for him we should be hating him, i know i do. to me the great evil isnt the Fanim or the Cishuarim or the Consult its Kellhus, Achamian once thought Kellhus was the only one who could save the world, i beleive hes the one who will end it. view post

Re: Esmet's betrayl, Bakker's massogeny, and a criticism posted 15 Jul 2006, 07:07 in The Warrior ProphetEsmet's betrayl, Bakker's massogeny, and a criticism by benwick19, Commoner

[quote="anor277":mpi82km1][quote="butlersr":mpi82km1]I think that to understand Esmett's betrayl one must see Esmi as Bakker's critique of women. .......[/quote:mpi82km1] And whom did Esme betray? A man she reasonably thought dead, who had arguably abandoned her on that night he went to the library, a man whose fidelity she had legitimate reason to doubt? Again I find it hard to agree that the author is a misogynist. The Three Seas is a very nasty place to live. Everything and everyone is for sale. As for prostitution it is probably hard to find a new profession as a clerk or a typist if you're tattooed with the mark of a whore. I think even Achamian himself understood the choices facing Esmenet - if she didn't sell him (Akka) and herself she would be dead very soon.[/quote:mpi82km1] So how come it was so easy for Xin, a guy Achamian had known for as many years as he had known Esmenet, to leave his prince, the man he had schooled since childhood to go in search of a man he didnt even know was still alive while Esmenet is able to just assume Achamian is dead and move on and barely goes a few days without bunking down with the next strong man she sees and forgetting about Akka view post

all i got is one tip, never ever ever ever use the word crevaces when describing a lady's sexual parts, it brings to mind words like dusty, cramped, gritty, and small and it just a bad word to use in any writing piece. view post
