Is it bad that reading chapter 8 of the ice plague had me thinking about Kabiri/Gwyn? Even a little bit of Kabiri/Eran (although I'm hesitant there because Eran is not even really an adult in terms of far standards and Kabiri is an ancient god, huge imbalance of power). I always enjoyed Kabiri in Game Theory and COFT, but DAMN. I have a whole new appreciation. Swoon.
My friend, it is not bad, this ship has existed since Game Theory (really) and like, come join us. It is a tiny little ship but it’s a nice one and you can bet there’s a fire at least, lol.
Eran is an adult in the same way you’d consider like… a 20 year old an adult? Most 20 year olds consider themselves to be adults but they’ll still flail a lot about adulting things they’ve never done before, and they still need a fair bit of guidance (from parents, websites, strangers, teachers, etc.) And likewise, they just don’t have much life experience yet.
Though yeah, still a huge imbalance of power! It’d be interesting, since Eran is a top and Kabiri is too. Though I’m pretty sure Eran would just be happy to go along with whatever because, y’know, Kabiri and he loves Kabiri.
Tbh power imbalance is why I love Kabiri with anyone in the first place. That dude could do whatever he wanted. I have an excellent time imagining him topping Gwyn.
