Mwahahaha. I was just teaching kindergarteners for three hours, so you'll pardon the kiddie-ness, but I like it.

Let's play Sybel Says!
In reality, it's not just Sybel, though...I'm going to flip open my book pretty much once a week, and find a passage or a quote I like and post it here! Feel free to comment, and ramble on and on about how you love it, hate it, what you think about the situation, how it reminds you of something you did the other day...anything!

    Sybel caught the Falcon's mind, felt the sudden sweep of earth beneath its flying.
    Ter. Go back to Tam. There is danger.
    There was silence a moment, before the drive of Ter's heartbeat and the run of fire in his veins. The he said,
    No.
    Ter. Go back to Tam.
    Ogam's child, ask of me anything else. But I have a pair of eyes to pick and a dark mind to still.
    Ter—

    She lost him suddenly, groped for him, amazed, and lost him again; and a whisper broke into her mind, strong, implacable.
    Sybel.
    "No," she said, and the word fell lifeless against the white stones. "No!"


That's on pp 84-85 of my version...which is the first Avon printing in '75, with Sybel and Gyld on the cover (see community icon, heehee).

This passage makes me think about...a couple things. First, I guess, losing something precious to you. Just the brutal shock of having something taken from you and not being strong enough to keep it.
Also...I've always thought it was interesting that Ter refused her this. Single-mindedness much? Did he realize how strong the enemy was? Either way, the whole idea of getting in over your head against better advice, is interesting. Sybel's like, "Dude, he's too strong, back off." And Tam is all, "No way, biatch, I got this one covered. Oh wait...maybe not so much." Hehe.
Also, it's one of the many places we see evidence of loyalty and affection for Sybel from the Legends.
