Oh my god, so if Meenah is the Thief of Life it makes so much sense...
The Condense is ridiculously long-lived, and could gift people with life… but her longevity was far beyond what any troll should be capable of naturally.
Is it possible she stole all that life from her people?
Could it be that lowbloods are not naturally that short-lived? That the Condense stole the livespans of lowbloods to extend her own and those of her loyal seadwellers subjugglators, leaving the lowbloods to die at the age of a dozen or two dozen sweeps? That she did this to enforce the idea that highbloods are better than lowbloods, and thus cement the twisted ideas of the hemospectrum?
I heard this theory before. It made sense to me then. Now there’s so much pointing to that theory being actual truth that my head hurts.
Ohhhh I have sads again.
Why isn’t anyone talking about the fact, that in this point in time, the Condense already raised John Crocker and loved him like he was her own son, and now there is someone who looks EXACTLY like her son nearby? I mean fuck, if your kid died and you saw someone who looked just like him you’d probably do something other than spear him, right?
