Heh, but who is that person? Because it's not the Olivia Lincoln has known. She's a different person now, who has forgotten most of her life and remembers another life. It may feel right for her, but from his perspective? This is pretty weird. If Amber Olivia, the one Lincoln had known, had said "sorry Linc, I love Peter" it would be totally different. But this? A different Olivia? Weirdness all-around, and in my view it explains his bummed out attitude.
No, sure, of course, but that's entirely a separate issue from Lincoln's feelings. No matter what's happened, she's an autonomous person and he while can feel as badly about it as he wants, I was just saying that it wouldn't sit well with me if the way he felt was that she was "taken" away from him.
Yes, Ageha, just an expression. I was just looking for a simple way to say that Lincoln thought he had something going with her, then all this weirdness started happening, and now she's with Peter. Didn't mean to imply that there was any kind of competition or malice or anything, which we know isn't the case.
I'm sorry if I made a mountain out of a molehill! We really don't
know how Lincoln would describe how he's feeling, it's just the idea
that he might feel *this* way kind of drove me crazy. Also, honestly, while I feel badly for him over what happened, and I understand how much has happened to him in such a short amount of time, I just...I really just don't think they were close enough for him to brood about it too much.
Plus he might be a porcupine.
I quite literally lol'ed, so thank you for that! :)
Possibly - and I'm just throwing this out, based on Walter's palimpsest speculation - she still has access to both sets of memories, she just needs the proper context to access them.
I really hope you're right, Corwin, not only because that's path of least sorrow in my book, but I sort of feel that if Olivia could do all of these other amazing things, somehow it'd be hard to believe she couldn't
also retain all of her memories. For whatever reason, the idea that only *one* set can exist seems too much to be believed!
