Winter through the ages (CD spoilers, Minor SG, WAGy)
« on: October 30, 2013, 12:16:55 AM »
Having read Cold Days, I'm wondering if some of the prior history of Mab (and Titania) will be addressed. Like maybe some historical events have been due to them?

1. Titania and Mab have apparently not spoken since 1066. I.e. the Battle of Hastings? Might either of them had a hand in that conflict? Perhaps William the Conqueror and Harold Godwinson were each's knights? This would explain Harold having such a flawless victory against Tostig, managing to get his forces down south so fast (using the Nevernever?), only to get killed by William.

2. We know that Gilles de Rais was one of the previous holders of the mantle of the Winter Knight. Gilles de Rais was, before he became an insane serial killer of children, a prominent supporter of Joan of Arc, a girl who heard voices and led French forces to victory against the English in the Hundred Years' war. Would that mean that Jean was the Winter Lady? This might work well with the previous theory - if Summer held sway over England, the Hundred Years War could be but one skirmish between the two sides, using mortals as pawns. We also know that Mab owes the Denarians a favour, one that is equivalent to lending them Harry to carry out a service - perhaps Joan had a coin, which explains the prophetic voices she allegedly heard?

3. We know that Kemmler was associated with the Nazis in WWII. During WWII, the Germans invaded Russia, and got close to Moscow, only to be stopped by the coldest winter of the 20th century, arriving earlier than normal. In the popular media, this built into the idea of 'General Winter', on the side of the Russians. Could 'General Winter' be our very own Mab, taking a personal hand in the defeat of Kemmler's allies?

this sounds like an awesome WAG!
