The Unholy Consult / Re: TUC Reviews

I've seen his earlier reviews on YT and...well, I forgot them. I guess that's telling right there. I have nothing against him though.

I'm surprised no one included this one: http://www.sfbrp.com/archives/1337

Did I miss it?

And the juryís still out about Proyas. He may come to bear in the next series, but Iím mildly doubtful at this point. Some of that doubtfulness revolves around the fact that Iím not entirely sure that heís even still alive.

we still begrudgingly "like" what seems to be his "social standpoint" (being mostly egalitarian).

Only in the sense that you're seen as a thing to exploit and discard.

Full disclosure: I AM a pile of shit.

So so hope I don't drive anyone away, but honesty is the greatest form of respect and I can honestly say I laughed hard when Kellhus kicked Proyas back off the side of the ledge the 2nd time. He COMPLETELY fucks him over, pulls him back up, explains to him that he's amazing and accomplished the impossible and kicks him back over because of ( very suspect logic here ) "something must be eaten" - it was so completely fucked up, I had to re-read it to ensure I understood it correctly. Have to say, I absolutely loved it, so fucking evil/nasty. It's this kinda shit makes me love these books so much.

This is exactly why I was glad the Ordeal failed in the end.

Of say the characters left, are the most important throughout the entirety of the series.

Of all those listed, only Akka matters to me now. And honestly, I don't necessarily view them as useless in general, I just don't care about them much. Like I said, they either stopped mattering or they never mattered to me. And since the world is not very desirable to me, I see no reason to be anything other than well, how I am. #TeamNOGOD.

Hell, more than likely, a guy named Kellhus who could be waging a war on the Gods, to end damnation.

I'll believe that when I see it.

IMO? Too little, too late.

Why so? Just because humans got kicked in the ass with the failure of TGO? Earth history has yielded worse horrors than Earwa, albeit not cosmic. Don't ever give up.

This has nothing to do with Earth history. I just don't think Earwa is worth saving. Certainly not now.

Well, Dora, I like your posts and I think you're worth saving, hope you stick around ( one could argue we're denizens of Earwa given our dedication to this forum ).

@Red +1

I have no intention of going anywhere, but Earwa is a crapsack world and I honestly believe that things won't get better at all. As I've said in my rage quit post, I don't think there is any fixing it.
But remember the parts where e.g. Mimara sees her mother through the Judging Eye and when Sorweel and that Holca are saved. They are so beautiful... it hurts to let go...

Honestly? Not to me. The characters who are "saved" either never mattered to me or they stopped mattering, so they are not sufficient to me. Sorweel is the only exception(well, maybe) and I think he got shafted despite being saved.

I know that I am being very biased here, but that is hardly unique.

When it comes to predation, I remember that the Inchoroi have no choice, just like animals don't. People like Shae and other human Consult members did. Honestly, I can't say I blame them. They likely believe that changing their ways will accomplish nothing. Cynics, if you will.

Oftentimes, I think #TeamConsult. Now? I might as well join the Consult now that Proyas is gone. :(

so here we're crying in our beers over the ending of TUC only to discover in the next books humans will rise ...

IMO? Too little, too late.
