Conphas does loads of little funny things. Like leaning back and forth with martemous(sp?) just to watch him mirror him. whatever he gets up to with the concubine standard when alone. His whole strutting about and quips. " i wore sandals" to Proyas when saying Gotian didn't want sand in his boots.

Him and Cnaiur are two amazing characters i love reading about them, but imaging the scenes from their PoV as actually from a 3rd party, privy to their thoughts and actions, gives me much mirth.Cnaiur goes to the tree starts screaming at Kellhus in his native tongue, starts a mini riot and starts jamming thumbs into eyes, then when Saubon appears, acts like nothing has happened and declares the vigil a "fools watch" or something. That had me in tears after a few re-reads. 

Poor Cnaiur always having these revelations and folk coming up to him to ask questions. Imagine being the person to go get him. "Captain get the Scylvendi we need his counsel for the upcoming battle". Cnaiur is either off in the sea naked screaming, fucking the ground, or rampaging through villages on murdering spree, and when you get to him he's like "you call me a weeping faggot?" before choking you out and attending the council.

I thought when Akka got stoned with the Skin-Eaters was pretty funny, didn't feel forced at all.

"Only the good mud on the slug"

Considering that Bakker uses "mud" for "shit" often, I found these guys essentially going "this is the good shit, some damn fine weed" entertaining. The whole scene was very true to life. I think it's pretty obvious Bakker's had a few good tokes in his time.

"It has to carry us far"

Yeah mirth at someone "coughing their lungs out on good shit" is something any smoker has experienced.

In saying that not surprised the bong was put away once they got into the nonman mansion. Cil-Aujas doesn't strike me as a great place to sit and get high.

Kellhus has to snort Mekeretrig in the next book.  I demand it.
What is reason, but the blindness of the soul?

R. SCOTT RAP3ZT TERRIBLEZ LOLZ.

if Kellhus was thinking all of this, he's going to freak out when he get's back and Kelmomas is all "i lieks to eatum peeples da"

the whole thing is orchestrated by Kellhus who is wearing a Bashrag as if it were a suit

The question shall then be: "Father, am I to dwell in your house?  And put mine feet upon your couch?"
“I am a warrior of ages, Anasűrimbor . . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury.” -Cet’ingira

Notes toward a possible screenplay of TUC

NEW SCENE
<Kellhus meets Proyas at Golgotterath>

K. Bro! Whassup!

P. Fuck this noise, that's what's up. This fucking "Great Ordeal" is a goddamn shitstorm!

K. Whoa, chill, Greater Pro! Try teleporting across the entire Empire. Have you made the necessary decisions?

P. The fucking hell...yes, Lord, I did. Hey, did you know that if you burn up a Sranc completely, the ashes from the charred Meat are pretty fucking potent? We've been slogging all the way from Dagliash on that shit.

K. Good call! Now let's fuck up the Consult.

END SCENE.
