to:

* Pretty much confirmed in ''The Brightest Fell''. The Luidaeg says that there are only a few ways to bring the Lord and Ladies back, and the least destructive one involves Amandine's line. August was lost questing for Oberon, and several plot threads are left dangling that only the return of the Three can resolve. (ALSO: Called it!)

* In ''An Artificial Night'', Toby also recalls that Amandine seemed particularly fond of [[spoiler:that ballad]] when she recalls her childhood.
* In ''The Brightest Fell'', the Luidaeg tells Toby that Amandine's line is responsible for the loss of [[spoiler:the King and Queens]] and that [[spoiler:"(Amandine's)]] mother's actions and our Father's blood" had lain a task upon her that she didn't want as she didn't want to be required to [[spoiler:sacrifice herself for others.]] The reference to a [[spoiler:sacrifice]] echoes comments about "the [[spoiler:Carter]] woman's" stealing a [[spoiler:sacrifice]] as discussed in ''An Artificial Night''.

* Confirmed. It was the person named above, although they weren't searching for Blind Michael.

* Several people in the books have commented on the Brown kids (Karen and Cassandras especially) weird look. Arden, for example, mentions that she was tought about all races of fae living in the Mists, but she has no idea what Cassandra Brown is. At least two of them have also developed prophetic abilities, dream walking and reading air omens, when seers and prophetic abilities are really, really rare. Now, "ultra rare race of fae that has a tendency to produce seers and prophets" is pretty much a short description of the Roane. I believe one of the earlier books mentioned that merlins can appear completely human, until and unless their magic awakens. Someone in the Browns human ancestry was actually a Roane merlin and for some reason the Roane genes have become prominent in the youngest generation.

[[WMG: The Queen of the Mists is or used to be a merlin.]]
* "The Fixed Stars" establishes that the merlins have only one magical scent. The Queen is often described with just one magical scent, that of rowan. (This isn't consistent - in the earlier books she also has the scent of damp sand, but that description is dropped as the series goes on.) The Queen has also said she traded away her name a long time ago. What did she trade it for? Maybe a change in the balance of her blood? Removing the human from it, perhaps?

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: There are more races of Faerie yet to exist, and many will be from Changelings. ]]
* The Brown kids look nothing like any race that has come before. They also are very stable [[spoiler: outside the obvious trauma from Blind Michael]] which is very unlike many mixed bloods seen thus far.
* Two of them are seers, which is both incredibly rare and neither form (dream walking or reading the air), are known in their bloodlines.
* Mixed bloods often show interesting new abilities that can't be explained by any of their bloodlines alone.
* [[spoiler: In The Brightest Fell, the Luidaeg talks about how Firstborn isn't a clear cut concept. Also, Piskies.]]
* Mixing blood leads to new races. Instability and one's body fighting itself is a problem but if you can create an equilibrium, more new races and new abilities will be born.
* Changelings like the Browns, who are already mixed, will source many of these new Fae lines because they aren't as biased to start.

* In the beginning Luna was a loving substitute mother figure for Toby while Raysel was driven axe crazy by her biology. Now Luna has been getting more and more jaded and hostile over the last few books while Raysel seemed friendly if somewhat insecure when Toby changed her blood. Once Rayseline awakens from her elf-shot she will join Tobys gaggle of teenagers and ironically turn into a replacement daughter for Gillian while Luna will (driven by her anger at having lost her daughter because of Toby ''again'') end up becoming one of the main antagonists.

* I will go even further. Marcia is not only Marianne, she is also the latest secret alias of the Coblynau Firstborn. In ''Dreams and Slumbers'' we learn that the Luidaeg knew Marianne and apparently liked her (if her reaction after hearing Mariannes name is anything to go by), the Luidaeg liking somebody is already noteworthy. Marianne also seemed to know more about the Luidaeg then most people do, the Luidaeg seemed surprised that Arden already knew about how she operated and Marianne was the one who told Arden about the Luidaeg. As for Marcia, the way she drops her ditzy behavior when things are really serious seems suspicious. For example when Eira invaded Goldengreen; everyone was busy crapping their pants, Dean was angry, but Marcia was completely calm. At first I thought that to be "things are sooo far beyond panic" fatalism, but what if Marcia really was that calm? Because she knew that if she really had to she could take Eira on? Marcia/Marianne being Firstborn would also explain the apparent change from pureblood to changeling. Toby mentions several times that the Luidaegs human disguise is so good that even when she knows what to look for she can't even see any ''hints'' that an illusion is there. Who says another Firstborn can't weave disguises that are just as good?

* Amandine is known as [[spoiler: the daughter of the Great Betrayal, or something similar.]] So what if [[spoiler:Tam Lin]] was actually [[spoiler:Oberon]]?
