That was one of the funniest portions of the book. I laughed outloud and re-read it many times over the past two years. Brilliant.

mayb it will be like in the case of a swan's mate death.. when one died, the other have no means to live.
mayb with this disregard for life, they will be more couragoues and fierce in battle..mayb that might have been the basis the band was formed, the ultimate love to disregard life and chose death to alleviate the grief of the lost love
