The WLW passages keep making a big deal about Esmi and "catch." Then Kellhus says "What have you done?" I thought she had given the Narindar a chorae. Prologue: Momemn, p. 42 in the Nook version: Quote She found the towering doors to the Imperial Audience Hall ajar. She wandered in, walked small beneath the soaring stonework. She pondered all the loads teetering, and the Sumni harlot within her wondered that such a place could be her house, that she lived beneath ceilings impregnated with Chorae, gilded in silver and gold. Note also the very subtle foreshadowing of the earthquakes. 45 minutes ago, unJon said: Would be interesting to see if mentioned in TDTCB. A quick search of the Xerius scenes doesn't make any hint about Chorae in the ceilings, but it's totally possible I missed it. Also, while looking for the Chorae quote, in the first Momemn chapter, the WLW pretty much tells us exactly what is going to happen, and I didn't catch it at the time nor remember it until just now: Quote Blaring horns. A black city roiling, bracing. "Catch." The rooves slump, first to one knee, then another. The Mother sheds her tear, gives what has been given. He watches himself cast what is broken, sees the Aspect-Emperor stumble, then vanish beneath the Mother's heel. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
