I actualy wasn't disapointed with what happened between Vlad and Teldra. I was curious, while reading it, where Brust might be going, but was happy with the way it turned out. And I agree with someone here that Teldra doesn't seem the type to just jump into bed with someone she's just started to hang out with. > 2nd, this brings back the "favorite line" thread, as I > love the interaction between Vlad and Loiosh that if > sleeping with Dragaerans is half like bestiality, then > sleeping with a whore is like paying the..... Heh. That was a good line. > As far as Mindless Sex is concerned, a) what's so bad > about peace, love, and Mindless Sex? and b) I would > say that most sex is fairly mindless, if it's any > good.

Do you have to have all three? b) I can never completely seperate my mind from my actions, so it can't be mindless for me. I can be blissful, and totaly out of it, and willingly give up control for the moment, but I can't be mindless. And, as a 70's flower-child once put it: "I only have sex with someone I love; and I love everyone!" or, as my bumper sticker says: If love isn't free, what is it? (Okay, perhaps I've said a bit too much. Must be a Holly-Syndrome or something....<grin>) > -there were bonds of love: Pathfinder loved Aliera, > Iceflame loved Sethra, Blackwand loved Morrolan. > > And Lady Teldra loved me. > > P.S.

So I think it's a different kind of love; akin to Loiosh's love for Vlad, and vice versa. Don't I have work to do, or something?
