Sidimund's Last Will and Testament

Aretice N. Treader - Hania has such complicated relationships with everyone. That must be exhausting.

I'm a bit curious: Is Dylene (and possibly other gods?) an actual being in the story, or are the characters' beliefs unfounded? I'm a bit worried that Hania might completely lose it if she finds out that there is no Dylene to answer her prayers.

Frances - It's the religion, the gods and goddesses are similar to saints in the Catholic Church, so she is going to see answers to her prayers where she wants to, she's a fanatic

Aretice N. Treader - @Frances, Ah, okay, so I guess it doesn't really matter because it's from Hania's point of view. Thanks for answering! :)

Heminor - Oh jeez, that term "keeping the bed warm" sincerely threw me off guard...

Heminor - @Frances, Even more than that, the rather Implicit meaning behind rather innocent-seeming words. The meaning has a lot more than just a "mistress" to it in the modern connotation. Not only is it treated as a trivial matter, but it's also treated as a duty to be performed at a whim. A convenience rather than even a pleasure. Even in other historical media (the Marco Polo series for example) it wasn't treated in quite the same way as here.

Heminor - @Heminor, Or am I perhaps reading a bit too much into it? I'm just not very used to the writing style

Frances - @Heminor, no not at all. Her position becomes very important later on as Sidimund's mistress. Its more of an official title like a wife but lower in rank here. But only if acknowledged publicly.

Heminor - @Frances,Ah I see. So the intention was more for a logical rather than emotional correlation.

Frances - @Heminor, well....maybe. Like most relationships of that kind, it's complicated. Marriage was definitely more logical than emotional, they were for money and title not love.
