Yup, I just went for an amble through fandom again, and found another pretty meme for us all :)

Give me the names of two characters and I will tell you what character A thinks of character B. I might answer with a drabble, a quick bit of meta, or a list, just to make things that tiny bit more fun!

Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

Okay... because I haven't read enough of your non-Elfy stuff to know more characters, I'll go with two of my favorites:

Nimbus and Tiger ^_^

*scratches head* I have to admit I'm absolutely stumped by this one. Tiger's only about thirteen when the Isolan gate goes down, so they don't have an opportunity to meet.

Um, in an alternate world where Lynx didn't get exiled and the Dark didn't beseige Isola, he'd spoil her rotten, along with all his other friends' kids, and teach her how to win drinking contests against scarred veterans, and threaten to castrate the first boy who broke her heart, because her dad might be scary than him, but everyone knows Saisorhi are unpredictable enough that they might actually follow through on that threat.

Best I can do, hon. Sorry. If you want to throw a different pair of names at me, I'll have another go.

Ah, I know they don't meet, I was just curious what they'd think of each other in an alternate world.

Heheheh, that's sweet! I'd want Nimbus to castrate the first boy who broke my heart.

Hear that, Petr? BEWARE!!!

What's a quick bit of meta? O.O

More importantly, what does Varal think of Lynx?

When he was three, Varal didn't realise that Lynx only smiled at him and Emli. He just knew that she was there for him - when he woke up from dreams of monsters chasing him or when he fell over chasing after Em or when he learnt something new and just had to show someone.

When he was four, she came back from a meeting grim and bloodied. Watching her pale and wince as Mole tentatively cleaned her wounds, Varal realised that she wasn't invulnerable, and began to cry. She held out her arms to him and wiped his tears away before Mole took him off her. In later years, Varal felt a sick twinge of guilt every time he remembered the way her blood had stained his shirt.

When he was five, the brewing conflicts of the Warren exploded into a sudden exchange of gunfire. Flattened on the roof beside Emli as Lynx coolly returned fire, he realised that she was the scariest thing in the whole world. But she was being scary for him, so it was okay.

When he was six, she began to teach the two of them Drine and C'Tiri. It didn't take him long to get bored, but she was relentless. Even when Emli lost control and accidentally blew a hole in the roof, she expressed her disappointment in C'Tiri. He and Em eventually decided that they'd have to burn down the whole of London to get a break, and it probably wasn't worth the trouble they'd get into.

When he was seven, he fell off a roof and broke his arm. It was three hours before Emli found him and another hour before she returned with help. Lynx yelled at him, but she was crying as she did so, so he didn't feel embarrassed to cry too.

When he was eight and she grounded him and Emli for three months, he thought she was the meanest person in the world. It hadn't been his idea to try to wade across the Thames at low tide, and couldn't she see that being rescued by the river police had been the coolest thing ever?

When he was nine, he got angry and told her that she wasn't his real mother and he didn't see why he should listen to her when she wasn't related to him at all. She had looked at him quietly and said, "You are, of course, entitled to think that." Then she had gone away and Emli hadn't spoken to him for a week. It wasn't until Mole banged their heads together that he realised the only way to make things okay again was to apologise. When he did, Lynx hugged him and taught him to cheat at poker.

When he was ten, he managed to beat her at poker five times in a row, and she had laughed and offered to buy him ice cream. The three of them had been in the queue for the ice cream van when the sky went black and the Dark came.

When he was eleven, living with strangers in a world full of deserts and canyons and loud people with wings, he missed her more than anything else in the world.

Hmm, that one was actually trickier than it should have been. Parent-child relationships are hard to write.

*flounders* Uhm, uhm, uhm. *flounders more*

It'd be cruel if I asked for Sphinx and Tad, wouldn't it? *winces at the memory of asking Becca about a less threatening situation with favourite characters*

Nimbus and Sphinx.

Well, that one's easy, at least. They've never met and neither knows of the other's existence, so he doesn't think anything of her ~_^

Want to choose another pair?

Meanie. ;p

'tis all right. I have my answer. ^-^ (Although I could make puppy dog eyes and ask you to rephrase it into 'what would A think of B if they did know of each other's existence?' ^-~)

'sup to you though. ^-^

Er, Aha! An agent of the vile Dark! She deserves only death!

XD

It's quite beautiful in its simplicity. If a little aggressive. I'd ask if Nimbus believes in redemption, but the more pressing question would be whether it's possible to defect from one side to the other. (I'm assuming it is, but you never know...)

The survivors of the Ninth all tend to be absolutist about the Dark. Given how many of the people Nimbus loved were killed by the Dark, he's not likely to feel forgiveness. The five most important people in Nimbus' life were his sister Sofia, Maria, Devon, Lia and Aylili. Sofia died when he was a kid and you know about the others.

People do defect sometimes, but Sphinx isn't likely to. Like Nimbus, she's lost too much.
