    Summary

    I had only a moment to see  the warning and fear in Estraven’s face, the thin sliver of eyes I could see between his head wrappings, and then suddenly he vanished. Slipping downwards into the white void almost quicker than I could see.

    Summary

    I had colleagues again, and after three years, what a change it was: all the everyday details of Gethen, which had become familiar to me over the years, I saw as new again through their eyes.

    But they, too, were unfamiliar to me in several ways: I had not had time to get to know them well during our journey to Gethen, since we had been in deep sleep all that time. And how strange to speak Hainish again! It was not a difficult language, having for thousands of years had its complexities worn down by use as a lingua franca—but it was neither Karhidish nor my native Earth language which I used in my own mind. It brought me back to my years training with the Ekumen on Hain.

    Summary

    A few small vignettes on the initial meeting and increasing connection between Genly and Therem. I greatly appreciated the prompt about the evolution of their relationship, and wanted to play with some of the things that struck me on my recent umpteenth re-reading of the book.

    Summary

    "How little it mattered when the moment finally came. I could see Estraven’s body had taken a shape that would suit mine. Relief, I suppose, was the strongest emotion I felt, but even that was overblown. All this time I had built it into something it was not, had worried myself into needless fretting. Finally I had my answer as to what Estraven was: he was mine."

    Yes, it is another Gobrin Ice Missing Scene. Set in chapter 16 directly after the Harhahad Thanern journal entry after Estraven writes "My own feelings were complex, and we let the matter drop." Me: No They Didn't <3
