    [–] [Cold Days] Why'd he say his Full name? -EG- 37 points ago in dresdenfiles

    Q: Why in Cold Days did Harry shout his entire name to the Outsider? Now this Outsider has his Name. (19min20s)

    A : Yeah, why would he do that? Harry was shouting a challenge to it, and basically he has to respond in kind so he could find out who this thing was. It was worth it to him to make that effort. It does seem a little crazy, but on the other hand he doesn’t always make the best decisions.

    You do realize you are willing to take that bit about him being able to face down Mab cuz he's the Knight, as info from someone who in the same book was revealed to be lying the whole time at face value, along with others in this thread, like it's a given? For reasons I can't even begin to understand beyond you thinking it helps your point.

    I don't care that he got the drop on Fix or that he managed to barely survive Lily (of which he only did so cuz Fix helped), none of that is indicative of victory in this fantasy scenario you all want to continue pretending is not only going to happen, but totally makes sense.

    Doesn't change the equation to me. Harry routinely goes up against stronger people and wins it's true. He wins because he's the protagonist main character, also true. In story it's usually a vast combination of luck and being underestimated. All fine.

    Mab on the other hand has all of Winter at her disposal, and a direct connection to him via the mantle. She could also quite literally snap her fingers and re-paralyze him if she so chose, because under this pre-concieved 'fight' per the OP, Mab has been taken by Nemesis. So honoring Winter principles goes out the window. And neither she, not Nemesis at this point, would underestimate him again.

    Every situation is different.

    Textbook recipe to get their asses handed to them no matter who advised them.

    If and when he gains real access to that power, which most likely cuts both ways, sure it's a nice addition. We're still talking about a being levels above those that smacked him silly under what would ultimately be similar circumstances, based on OP's postulation that he was hired for this failsafe reason.

    My reasoning holds up perfectly fine. You tell me Mab planned to have Harry summon her to intervene and that he has friends. I'm telling you that in this scenario postulated, he has no Mab to fall back on and that his friends are inadequate to the task. This includes Molly, Winter Lady though she may be.

    Which is utterly irrelevant seeing as how both those entities, and anyone comparable to them, have massive constraints on them and how they can use their power.

    So no he can't just whistle them up for help in the slightest.

    Great. And precisely how does that help him kill her in this presupposed notion? Because if Mab ever were to get taken by the Adversary, she obviously isn't going to be whistled up to intervene again. And if you think Murphy is getting the drop on her the same way she did an arrogant child by comparison, i've got a bridge to sell you.

    Can you point out to me where this notion set forth by the OP differentiates that only the Knight can kill a Queen or else she'll regenerate, cuz it sounds like you're conflating that with something else.

    Except not only did Harry NOT kill Maeve, he was hopelessly outclassed by Lily and then outwitted by Maeve. The only reason she's dead is cuz Mab directly intervened and freed Murphy to take the shot.

    That's not the reason she made him the Knight.
