I asked why Vlad couldn't have given Aliera's blood to Morrolan perhaps a
month ago - I think the counterargument was that Aliera's blood qualifies
her to leave but, uhh, sorry, I forget what it was (how does one look up
past posts?) and otherwise _Taltos_ wouldn't make sense.

On the subject, doesn't Verra tell Vlad never to show his face round there
again?  And doesn't Vlad pop up at least three subsequent times in Verra's
all-white apt. without any apparent consequences?  Does she somehow not
live (or whatever it is she does) in the Paths?
