[[WMG: The successful spirifer figures you're a con man, but is willing to give away a small portion of his fortune on a ridiculous lie just for the company]]
Think about it; he's been so utterly successful that he has acquired a rare type of soul that has no general purpose but will fetch a good sum on the market, yet is willing to lose them to gypsies who claim they are powerful archdemons from hell and that the end is nigh. AGAIN. If he acquired a high-enough criminal record, there might not be anyone left for him to call friend. His willingness to give away his prized possessions comes from the heavy amount of time you invest in befriending him - and the actual amount you receive isn't worth it, so you're the one being suckered by spending too much time giving him the friendly comforts he would gladly spend twice as much in assets on.

* [[spoiler: {{Jossed}}. The Bazaar and The Sun ''did'' love each other, and Stone was born from their love. It's the rest of the Stars that the Bazaar fears, and the love collection is analogous to building a legal defense. It's not going so well these days.]]

* [[spoiler: The Correspondence is the written language of the stars, which are the highest gods and the legislators and enforcers of natural law. Mortal lives are playthings and livestock to them, so yeah. This is just shy of canonical.]] -woggs123

[[WMG: The reason The Correspondence tends to light you on fire.]]
The correspondence is, as we know, [[spoiler:the language spoken by the Judgments]]. Perhaps, then, knowledge of the correspondence causes a being to transform, slowly, into [[spoiler:a star.]]

[[WMG: The entire deepest layer of backstory is one big StealthPun.]]
[[spoiler:Two lovers, destined never to be together because of a long and terrible family feud. The lovers are the Bazaar and the Sun, their families are different levels on the Chain of Being, and the Sun's family are all the stars in the universe. They are literally ''[[Theatre/RomeoAndJuliet star-crossed lovers]]''.]]

** Partially Jossed: The Masters are actually aiming for Paris...but whether or not they get it isn't up to Fate, not them.

to:

* Oxygen deprivation might be why being in the Neath a long time makes you count as "dead", but what's actually going on seems to be that [[spoiler:The Cave of the Nadir somehow protects the Neath from the laws of the Judgments. Once away from its influence, someone who has died but is still walking around is recognized as a FILTHY LAWLESS and Judged with their light.]]

[[WMG: Mr. Pages is struggling with learning English.]]
His tendency to use PerfectlyCromulentWords is because he likes to sound sophisticated or because he loves the sound of his own voice, right?

Wrong.

Even when he writes under a pseudonym or pretends to be Mr. Sacks, he still makes up words. Even though he probably knows that no one else in the entire Universe talks like that.

So he's not making up words to sound sophisticated. He's trying to derive English from first principles, because he can't wrap his head around the bastardized nonsense that Londoners call a language.

[[WMG: Mr. Eaten's name has been changed so that it contains the Correspondence glyph for "irrigo".]]
Even if you are told it, you forget it. Even if you write it down, you forget the moment you look away from the page. Even if you scar, stain, and chain yourself, you can still forget the quest. Sound familiar?

You might think that the Correspondence obviously doesn't have a glyph for the Neathy colors, but the fact that these colors only exist in the Neath proves otherwise. [[spoiler:Because they cannot exist under the light of the Judgments, they must be illegal. But for something to be illegal, it must be described in the Law. Because the Correspondence is the language in which the Law is written, it must have words to describe the Neathbow, if only to state that they Are Not.]]

* Conceivable, but not a given. There is nautical access to the surface via the Cumaean Canal, and trade vessels sometimes come and go by that route. Whether that's enough to supply oxygen to the entire Neath is unclear. Also, the restriction on resurfacing seems to apply mainly to those who have died or been in the Neath quite a long time. Lastly, their death on the surface seems to manifest as variably-paced ''immolation'', which seems rather unrelated to suffocation.
