but i want to point out that i don't think JZB/KMM meant owned literally....
it's really hard to explain. let alone explain it w/o bringing in a bunch of deep philosophy/psychology--that would take FOREVER
Well, in the vortex that separated Christian and Mac, i can ask the same question
The Silvers are virtually impossible to navigate (note the word, VIRTUALLY. it's apparent Barrons, Ry, & Darroc can). B/c of the Curse.
Could it not have taken JZB 4 days to get back from the mirrors?
That's the conclusion I came to after learning all that about the mirrors
But now the HOAD (the mirrors in there) can get to her realms.
IMHO, it stands to reason that w/ the realms all crashed together, her mirrors can get into the other realms, thus making them no longer sealed off. Could be wrong, but in my mind (though tired and strained as it is) it stands to further reason that her silvers were affected to.
Remember, Cruce had succeeded in separating the UK from his concubine w/ this curse (and i'm think by other ways too)
But that's just my thinking on it.
Maybe i'm thinking about it wrong? 3 ppl now seem to think otherwise. but i just can't see how it makes sense. Gotta think on it more
I'm sorry if i sounded short w/ anyone! i haven't re-read my posts to double check, but i wanted to apologize ahead of time. I know when I'm crunched for time, my tone tends to sound short/stern/frustrated/rude through written text. though that's never my purpose.
Feel free to call me out on it if & whenever i do! i'll fix my posts and apologize!
btw, great job debating everyone!
all of you, you are very imaginative, creative, and pick up on things others miss, and correct misconceptions/info! keep it up ya'll!
I love that we can debate this out in the open, for others to see so they can come to their own conclusions.
I have a lot of fun doing it, but it all really makes my head spin! LOL
But i'll do what i can to keep up for now!
WG, u rock w/ your points
Happygirlie, u rock in being fair and gently calling people out! haha. you're an awesome mediator and awesome at defusing possible drama (not just in this thread, but many others) and you do it in a way that doesn't rub people the wrong way!

I don’t see why this info is more valid than Barrons info when only one out of the two of them could have conceivably been there at the time. I wonder who Christian spoke to / came by this info? I’m also wondering if, going by the teaser, V’lane will be the one to spill the beans as I can’t recall him discussing the curse so far. He barely mentioned its existence when he told Mac the back-story in FF.“You know what Cruce’s curse was?” Finally, someone who could tell me!
“I’ve been wandering worlds in this place for what feels like bloody forever, and I’ve learned a thing or two.”
i was just saying that Barrons couldn't be the one to come from behind b/c it may cause Darroc to kill her parents right away, no questions ask. but Darroc may hesitate if Ry or someone else comes through.
But who knows?
awesome points though
In my own head, the silvers are the roads that lead to the destinations - a type of infastructure for the fae realms. I could be completely wrong in this though...
My guess (and it is only that - a guess) is that the main silvers are all connected to each other (like a spider web) and the concubine's silvers are all connected to each other but there is no 'line' or 'route' or 'strand' or whatever it is called connecting the two sets of silvers. Therefore a curse cast into the main silvers would effect every mirror in that 'web' but not reach the concubine's as there is no 'route'. For this to work, it would mean that the curse would have to pass from mirror to mirror and could not jump from <main silver mirror> to <realm> to <concubine's mirror>. I have no idea if this is the case or not and I don't think I have explained it very well anyway.
In both Faefever and Dreamfever the 'sealed off' aspect of the concubine's silvers seems to be highlighted:
I suppose I just get the impression that this was highlighted for a reason“V’lane said the king gave the queen only part of them.” “Unfortunately, he had to give the queen the nexus that contained the Hall of All Days. His concubine got only a small portion of what he’d made for her, sealed off from the rest. To compensate, he built his concubine the fantastical White Mansion, high on a hill, a house of infinite rooms, terraces, and gardens. He made that part of the Silvers accessible only through mirrors that hung in his own private chambers.”
“So there are two separate parts to the Silvers.” This was a lot to absorb. “One is a collection of possibly infinite mirrors that connect to other dimensions, worlds, and times, from the main ‘airport’ in the Hall of All Days. The other is a sealed-off smaller network that’s where the concubine lived. I guess once she died, that part was never used again,” I mused.
You have a point about Cruce succeeding though... so... after all that...I don't know!
