Because MTMTE #54 is looking like it’s gonna hurt like hell, I decided to redo the MTMTE BR Cards I did like two years ago, with the Dying Of The Light cast. Both to celebrate them and to cross them out if they happen to die! Also yeah I didn’t cross those who are already dead out, spoilers and such!
I remember hearing about a line in MTMTE regarding the Amica and Conjunx bonds, and now I'm curious: can one go from Amica to Conjunx, or vice versa? Can you even sever the bonds at all?
On other planets, yes, you can go from Amica to Conjunx. On “some colonies” according to Nautica (not Caminus), you actually have to be Amica before you can “move up” to being Conjunx. On Cybertron, on the other hand, it’s the other way around: you have to actively rule out the possibility of becoming Conjunx (Conjuxes? Conjuges?) before you can perform the Amica rites. “It can make for a very bittersweet ceremony,” says Rewind.
It is possible to sever the bonds, at least among Amica - Skids once had an Amica named “Chopper” but split up with him. On Caminus, they call splitting up the “platonic severence,” but on that planet, it’s extraordinarily frowned upon and an considered the worst insult you can subject someone to.
