Potty Break #23: “[Ayla] was wearing an arrangement of straps that held on the absorbent pads stuffed with cattail fuzz stuffed between her legs. ‘It is either her moontime, or she is still bleeding from the miscarriage.’…The Danier checked to see if she needed to be changed, but it appeared she was at the end of her flow.”
"Jondalar was born to grow into a 6'6" tall, well-formed, incredibly handsome man, with an unconscious charisma enhanced by a vividly intense shade of blue eyes." #1: Everything in that statement is about Jondalar's LOOKS, not about his MIND. #2: Charisma (m-w.com): a special magnetic charm or appeal. What is so charming or appealing about Jondalar, other than his looks?
"She felt utterly betrayed. But Jondalar hadn't meant to betray her; he wanted to keep her from finding out so she wouldn't be hurt." It's okay for Jonalar to act out of a jealous rage, but if AYLA does, oh, no, no, what a WICKED EVIL WOMAN. HOW DARE YOU DEMAND A MAN TO CONTROL HIS URGES AND NOT F@#$ THE FIRST WOMAN HE SEES!!! And this is supposedly an "equal" society! BAH!
