Could also be that she changed the Mantle itself instead of just restoring the factory settings. Maybe she wanted Harry to be a different kind of Knight than what she'd had in the past, and tweaked some of the subroutines. Everyone keeps remarking that All Winter Knights Are X-Y-Z, and Harry's persisted for a couple of years now without become a full-time psycho. Something's either different about Harry, or something's different about the Mantle, and that Stone Table transfer makes me suspicious.

A couple of years isn't all that long, though.  Especially when he was on life support for a big chunk of it.

Isn't the described height of Kumoro and Elaine very different?

Do you consider it strange from a writers point of view that such a significant person from Harry's past has played such a small role in the series?  It's his first love who he thought he'd killed who comes back and then....... gone?  It's odd to me.  Word had to have made the rounds that Dresden had been killed, and then even more waves must have been made upon his return.  She never even dropped by to see if the rumors were true.

Maybe she didn't need to.  She probably has plenty of contacts among the Fae.

Probably because a surprise drive-by is a fairly good tactic for getting rid of someone and getting away quickly.

Except that it's not; the victims are usually unaffiliated with the presumed target.

Re-casting is not necessarily a death sentence-netflix's series on Queen Elizabeth is great!

Nah. But it'd be a hell of a conflict. Harry's wizened up a bit since Summer Knight; we saw that in Turn Coat with Will. If it permanently poisoned their relationship, it would be too much of a rehash of Cassius/Tavi, too. Murphy's softened some of her edges toward Harry over the series, too, and God knows she knows the kind of stuff he's had on his plate.

Which was a rehash of Raucus/Sextus.  Tropes are kinda Butcher's thing.

Going back to Alera, I think you could do two books a season.  First is Tavi as an adolescent, reacting to everything.  Second is Tavi  finding his place in the world, seeing how things fit together. Third is Tavi as an adult, where he plans and shapes the world, instead of reacting.

Or maybe both disney and star wars EU are both full of mediocrity and clumsily used tropes?

Neither IP is known for their subtlety or respect for canon & continuity here.

Going toe to toe with the Vord Queen and beating her at the blade doesn't count? What about mowing through Immortals or the Vord-taken-Canim?  The fight with Aldrick was impactful, too.

Codex Alera Spoilers / On Maximus: "Well one of us is going to lose then."
« on: December 13, 2017, 05:02:20 AM »
I convinced my sister to read the series.  She's in PF right now.  We're talking about the different characters, and I say that I want to be Maximus.  She responds, "Well I want to marry Maximus, so one of us is going to lose here."

 :-[ :-[ :-[

At least she's got good taste in men?

I don't think we saw Tavi be delicate because his dramatic situations didn't require it.  But he used veils easily, and Amara singled those out as delicate. He did the weathercrafting along the Wall so circumspect that people didn't realize it was furycrafting.

But I think furycrafting's combat strength is in evocation and in a fast moving fight, Tavi is both better trained and more suited than Dresden.

I'd need to reread the books, but Tavi in SG murders Nico in the underworld.
