    [–] Spoilers All Books - RE: Favors returned -EG- 1 points ago in dresdenfiles

    Yep.

    How did Mab come to owe Anduriel a favor?

    Mab has got a lot of things to get done, and really in the books you only get to see bits and pieces of her job. But she has kind of an important job, which is why you never see Mab and the Leanansidhe show up in the same book. Because when Mab is there, there's nobody doing Mab's job and its Lea's job to cover that. And when Lea's there, Mab is busy, because Mab is doing things that she can't be bothered with, you know, some chump wizard in Chicago -- so she'll send the Leanansidhe to handle it instead. The situation as it exists now did not always exist that way. The Winter Fae weren't always the ones who were defending the wall. The transition when they switched over was a rough one, and so Mab had to ask a lot of favors at that point. And she's got people she's still paying off. Anduriel is one of them.

    [–] Realizing no character has died yet -EG- 200 points ago in freefolk

    While I like the idea of the dead rising from the crypts, some of them like Ned were just disconnected bones. The Night King brings people back, but like, as they fell. Some of them are skeletons, or very near to, but likely they were buried and just rotted away naturally over time, but still 'whole'. I don't think they'll just sorta spontaneously reassemble.

    "Daughter," Mab said calmly. "Your lackey shamed me as the host of this gathering. I hold you accountable. You will return to Arctis Minora at once, there to await my pleasure." -Cold Days.

    I mean it's also not just one room. Arctis Tor is a castle. But Maeve also has her own, Arctis Minora. And if they were to 'her' court in Undertown, I have to imagine the NN pocket was there, if anywhere.

    Slate had a sword too.

    Slate turned toward them, sword whirling and gathering with it a howl of freezing winds, its blade riming with ice. He met the first goblin's sword with his own, and the squat faerie soldier's blade shattered. Slate shifted his shoulders and sent his horse leaping a few feet to one side. Behind him, the goblin's head toppled from its shoulders, which spouted greenish blood for a few seconds before the body fell beside the head on the misty ground. The remaining goblins retreated, and Slate whirled his steed around to face me. -Summer Knight

    Why would this forge not be in whatever Summer's equivalent to Arctis Tor is, if it were on the same level of this pre-supposed importance.

    The wellspring didn't travel with Maeve in her Undertown court for instance.

    [–] Child, should you survive the coming conflict do not let Mab bring you here... -EG- 11 points ago in dresdenfiles

    You think they get one or the other? My interpretation has been that they get to behave as Mortals. Lying is something Mortals can do, going against their your liege is also something Mortals get to do.

    I think it goes for the area you are most 'vulnerable' towards and gives you that particular freedom. Since Aurora and Lea were never stated to have lied. Same as its influence twisting things in Harry's first three cases, as we find out in CD as well. Nemesis itself is the same, a corrupting influence. But how it gets to you varies.

    I think you're over-thinking the nature of Nemesis. Maeve was particularly vulnerable to such an offer because she would have been able to have sex without killing her partner.

    Says who? She may have wanted to have sex at some point, but the biggest thing it gave her was the ability to lie...even to herself. Getting to finally have sex was never mentioned at all, especially since we don't even find out about the prohibition until a later short story.

    [–] Child, should you survive the coming conflict do not let Mab bring you here... -EG- 22 points ago in dresdenfiles

    Nemesis doesn't just control you, there is a boon to it. You get to lie, you get freedom.

    Maeve got to lie. Aurora got to act against the balance. Lea got to go against her liege. N-fection is not proven to be a catchall thing to all Fae, it seems like a very targeted approach towards what that individual in a 'perfect' world would get to do.

    I think she was infected, and the infection allowed her to say what she wanted to Harry. I think that if she was unaffected, winter law would not have allowed her to advise Harry to escape Mab's will.

    She has the deal with Margaret in place, there is likely latitude when it comes to Harry on how she gets to apply it. Besides:

    "I warned you," said a calm voice behind me. "Never let her bring you here, my godchild." -Changes

    She reiterates this point when no longer N-fected, AT the Stone Table where Harry is about to give himself over to Winter, and in Mab's presence while acting as her voice box. Clearly she has freedom to do this.
