Better is always subjective.
Better for whom?
On it being “better”:
There are no overstones, hence no Banestone to drive people mad.
A lesson Jon has yet to learn, each version of a life has its worth, there’s no better, no worse. Kari Thornson may be united with her family, but she does not have the tenth of Kyri’s free spirit or thurst for justice, the latter being due to Kari never experiencing slaughter like Kyri did.
Similarly, Both Colindra and Coletta are outcasts of some sort, but not for the same reasons. Coletta’s outcast status seems to come from a lack of willpower that also has an effect on her health, both physically (i can talk about it, i’m round myself :P) and mentally (to the point her mother has to check her about that even on entertaining moments), while Colindra has suffered from her outcast status coming from an unwanted heritage, and fought against all odds most of her youth, developping her willpower.
Both are great example as of why there’s no better, and no worse. Each life experience is as valuable as another. What we don’t know yet is how Jon will eventually learn that and give up his goal to undo the Overstone timeline ? And at what price ?
Great read on the subtext of the scene, DK. 🙂 We’ll see how it plays out.
Raevyn, Edian, Christopher – Yes. Life is subjective and depends on your point of view. Exactly. 🙂
That’s Jon’s guilt talking. Translation: “A life in which I didn’t cause you all that pain and sorrow.”
