Geraden mischievous nephews might make fun of him, true. He'll never scare them into putting on their clothes after that. Wink

Behind the brown, he looked like a cross between a turnip and a fence post. Surely I can't be the only reader who has trouble visualizing this description of Minick! Laughing


Rough features that indicate his hard work around Housledom are likely part of it. His wife saw his inner beauty despite his turnipy-fence-post features and wasn't deterred from marrying him. Laughing

Quote:

"Oh, no." Minick became suddenly serious. "That isn't what he wants. He's too busy." For a second, the brown man almost shuddered. "When he gets like this, he yells at people a lot. He thinks they're fast. He's fast, and he thinks they are. too. But they aren't fast. They're just farmers and shepherds. They're like me. They like having things explained to them." Again, we are reminded how hard it is for the ordinary people to prepare for an attack by Imagery.
Shocked


Does that mean Minick is more in touch with the people of Houseldom than Tholden? Though I read Tholden as impatient rather than Fast. Housledom is lucky to have both men to complement each other.

Well, that's not quite how I've pictured Quiss, IrrationalSanity, but if it works for you, that's all that matters! Cool Maybe if we made her hair blonde and had her wearing a woolen work smock, I could see this image as Quiss--perhaps. Razz


How about:

LOL, probably not, unless he can scare them that he'll send the ghouls after them if they don't hurry up and dress! Wink

It might mean that Minick is even more in touch with the people of Houseldon than Tholden. I agree that Houseldon is luck to have both men to serve them.

How about:


In Chapter 32 of A Man Rides Through was wrote:
There was a woman on the porch. A line of rope ran from the one end of the porch to the other, and over it hung a large rug, rag-woven from scraps of wool. The woman held a short flail in one hand, and the air around her was dim with dust: apparently, she had been beating the rug. Terisa was immediately struck by her corn silk hair and sky blue eyes, by the flush of exertion on her cheeks and the strength in her hands. She had the bosom of an Earth Mother and the shoulders of a stonemason, and she propped her fists on her hips to greet Geraden as if she weren't entirely ready to let him enter the house.


Pretty close to how I've pictured her, shoe. Dress her up as a farmer's housewife from some bygone century, and it's Quiss!

I think all these women, even the wrestler that shadowbinding shoe has put forward in image, should look about 5 or more years older, considering that Quiss has had five children, and is likely in her thirties. But maybe that's just me. As for Sky's photos, these women have faces that show character, but none have the bosom of an Earth Mother, unlike shadowbinding shoe's example. That's just my reaction, my opinion, so I could be wrong.

They're all the same woman. Very Happy

It's Lagertha, from Vikings, played by Katheryn Winnick, a Canadian actress.

Actually, the Viking woman strikes me more like how I would envision Myste.

Thanks Avatar, I didn't recognize them, er, her. I agree with IrrationalSanity that she could make a good Myste, with a faraway look in her eyes. But I can't see her as Quiss.

Maybe because I watched the series, she's much too hard to be Myste. Stabbed her husband through the eye in order to reclaim her ex-husbands fiefdom. Very Happy

That does sound more like something Elega would do, but that's acting. Smile In addition, Myste gets a bit harder by the end of the story, and I've always seen her as a strong woman in her own right.
