JGP Posted May 17, 2016 Share Posted May 17, 2016 For me it needs to own a narrative sense of belonging in that particular moment, or others for that matter. Whether he has the feels or not, to me Kellhus projects a detached and self satisfied yet indulgent type of persona, so I never find his EAMD moments out of place. Frankly, I'd find it out of place if he didn't have them. But Esmi, while she has her moments-- she's not the type to run off course like that. The comparative 'whore' inner dialogue, that she does often and did so in seemingly unlikely situations all the way back to PoN, but it still remained in character as it has been a particular fixation of hers. EAMD on the otherhand... just nawp. Not like that, anyway, and while my sarcasm filters may be a little off at the moment I'd bet money that were this particular example pointed out to Bakker, in this instance, he likely wouldn't disagree.
