Added DiffLines:
** Likely not, though. It's more likely that Murphy, just by being Murphy, doesn't present herself as anything resembling "prey." Weakness and prey behavior are what the Winter Mantle keys off of, and Murphy's spent the entire series avoiding that at all costs, just as a matter of survival.

** Possibly FridgeBrilliance. The mantle urges him to rape the women he's around when they're tired, hurt, exhausted...in other words, it sees them as weaker, prey. But the thinking of Murphy as an equal is so ingrained into Harry's mind that it penetrates into the mantle.

Fixing some typos
* Eldest Gruff shows up at the party early in the book, and Harry is generally glad to see him. Those two seem really close to dropping the "Enemies" part of FriendlyEnemies. And we find out that he was the one who advised Titania to drop her vendetta on Harry, to boot.

* Actually, all the brotherly moments between Harry and Thomas in the book. Made even better when you realize why they're going at it even more with the banter and the teasing and the hugs - they really missed each other, and they're making up for lost time. It's pretty sweet to see how far they've come from when they couldn't have a proper conversation because of a 'guy thing'.

** Well, there is some very disturbing subtext while he's considering said physical violence. But yes, it is sweet.

** Perhaps the Mantle just realizes Murphy would flipping kill its' host if it got uppity enough to try it. Of course in Dresden's life, these are nearly one and the same.

-->'''Thomas:''' That was I was your brother, Harry. That I loved you. That I knew a few things about denying the dark parts of your nature. And that we would get through it. That we'd figure it out. That you weren't alone.

* While the winter mantle's sexually violent urges are extremely disturbing, especially when they end up directed towards Molly, it's noticeable that [[CantActPervertedTowardALoveInterest they never show up at all around Murphy]]. Murphy makes him angry enough to think about physical violence, but it never even occurs to Harry to assert his greater power through rape, the way it did with various other women, who had been much less confrontational than Murphy. Seems like ThePowerOfLove is strong enough to completely overpower the primal force of the winter mantle.

** Note how they're calling each other by first name, too. It really hits home that they're friends, despite the difference in ages and stations.
