Tear Jerker / Wizard and Glass

Go To

  • Susan's death. You know from the beginning that she's going to die, and it still heartbreaking.
    At the end of her life she was aware of heat but not pain. She had time to consider his eyes, eyes of that blue which is the color of the sky at first light of morning. She had time to think of him on the Drop, riding Rusher flat-out with his black hair flying back from his temples and his neckerchief rippling; to see him laughing with an ease and freedom he would never find again in the long life which stretched out for him beyond hers, and it was his laughter she took with her as she went out, fleeing the light and heat into the silky, consoling dark, calling to him over and over as she went, calling bird and bear and hare and fish.
  • The death of Rolands mother, the fact that it comes from Rolands guns is all the more upsetting.
    • The fact that she almost got to make things right with Roland for being Martin's mistress. At the moment he shot her, she was about to give him a belt she made just for him.
