ShadowHog from Earth Relationship Status: Healthy, deeply-felt respect for this here Shotgun

This is gonna end up with Annie having her hand "snipped off" by letting slip about Coyote's tooth to somebody in the Forest (Loup probably counts as "anyone in the Forest, ... even Ysengrin"), isn't it.

Wouldn't make sense to introduce that Chekhov's Gun and then do nothing with it. This series has already shown it's willing to give even the oldest, most-forgotten-about teases their payoff years after the fact.

Oh, it is? Guess I forgot about that.

Weird, then, that subplot didn't really go anywhere did it?

It showed that Coyote really didn't want word getting out about the tooth.

Loup phrased it the way that implies the Coyote couldn't cross the river after all. Interesting.

He doesn't imply Coyote couldn't cross, he says it doesn't matter because he didn't want to anyway, meaning the whole thing was pointless.

I've read it in a Suspiciously Specific Denial way for some reason.

Loup doesn't seem big on admitting shortcomings.

I read it as "Coyote would need to put actual effort into trickstering his way around the barrier if he wanted to cross". Because well, he is a trickster god, sneaking into places is kinda his thing.

I don't think it's OOC for Loup to lie like that, but it also sounds about right for Coyote to respond like that.

Man, Loup is an asshole.

The thing is, it's actually somewhat understandable that Loup is so hostile to Ysengrin and loves Coyote. Loup is another personality born from Ysengrin and Coyote mixing together. And what were Ysengrin's and Coyote's shared defining traits? Love for Coyote and contempt for Ysengrin.

The fusion of the two simply takes those traits up to eleven. As a result, Loup constantly showers praise on Coyote and takes every opportunity to call Ysengrin weak and worthless.

I'm also getting readings of some twisted sort of Tsundere from him.

This also makes sense. He is the fusion of two unstable beings who loved Antimony. But most of that came from Ysengrin, and Loup has nothing but contempt for him, for the reasons I mentioned. Thus he both violently insists that his love for her is real and mocks it as Ysengrinís foolish sentimentality.

On a side note, I like how this chapter has been using Antimony's haircut as a (maybe not so subtle) indication that something has been cut out of her. I'm expecting her to end this chapter with much longer hair and better control over her powers.

Well, yeah, I think we saw earlier, soon after Anthony came back and locked her away in a sterile room, that she had cut her hair and isolated her anger, her fire spirit side. Now she's getting angry, getting back in touch with her separated half. The hair regrowing is representative of that.

Suddenly that whole Annie losing a hand thing that was mentioned a few posts back seems to have vaulted from theory into hard possibility.

Plus, remember how in Eragon everyone cries "a single tear"? Yeah, just try that with One Piece and see if it works
