His heels clicked with each step in a similar rhythm, his pace reflecting his rather relaxed outward state of mind rather well, observing the plants calmly as they passed with hardly a word, saving them for when they arrived at the building. He observed the calm nature the house held overall, simple yet well managed.
“Thank you.. now. More on how I arrived – or what I believe in the least. I must forwarn it may seem rather confusing to here, I certainly still am rather confused but its what I remember well enough to explain.” He said, moving to calmly sit and gather his thoughts, remaining sat up straight for now with a leg crossing over the other, glancing towards her. “
Do you know of – or have at least heard of – the concept of different timelines or universes based on ones actions?“ He began calmly, looking her dead in the eyes with a sudden seriousness in his tone as he began to elaborate a faint bit with the question.
Farewell! O Elvenking!” said Gandalf. “Merry be the greenwood, while the world is yet young! And merry be all your folk!”
“Farewell! O Gandalf!” said the king. “May you ever appear where you are most needed and least expected! The oftener you appear in my halls the better shall I be pleased!”
“I beg of you,” said Bilbo stammering and standing on one foot, “to accept this gift!” and he brought out a necklace of silver and pearls that Dain had given him at their parting.
“In what way have I earned such a gift, O hobbit?” said the king.
“Well, er, I thought, don’t you know,” said Bilbo rather confused, “that, er, some little return should be made for your, er, hospitality. I mean even a burglar has his feelings. I have drunk much of your wine and eaten much of your bread.”
“I will take your gift, O Bilbo the Magnificent!” said the king gravely. “And I name you elf-friend and blessed. May your shadow never grow less (or stealing would be too easy)! Farewell!”
Then the elves turned towards the Forest, and Bilbo started on his long road home.
I don’t think I’m really the best person to ask with regards to genders since I’m not 100% aware. I’ve read some posts with regards to Kanae’s gender and there seems to be a difference in opinions. But I’m still rather confused as well.
How I understood it was that Kanae is biologically female but due to what happened to his family and how he wanted to fulfill his father’s wishes, he decided to live as a man, as the heir of the Rosewald family. Like how another user explained it, Kanae did a Mulan.
Tbh, what makes me confused is Kanae’s profile back in TG:re vol 4. I tried to come up with several ideas as to why Ishida would put male there despite Kanae being biologically female since Mutsuki did not receive the same treatement.
So I thought it was something like this. ‘Kanae’ is like a different identity from ‘Karren’.
Kanae -> Male Karren -> Female
I’ll still call Kanae ‘he’ tho. o:
Please correct me if I’m wrong. This is just my own interpretation and I have no intention of offending anyone so please do tell me if I do and I’ll take down this post.
