Finally, the last of the Shinichi’s Great Reveal posts (I think – who knows what will happen between now and the release of Midnight)…
For Elena’s theories about Camelot:
Not much needs to be said, here are the excerpts from the book.
Page 1o8 Elena fell asleep in the bathtub and…
In her dream she was moving briskly. It was only half light, but she could tell somehow that she was skimming downward through deep gray mist. What worried her was that she seemed to be surrounded by arguing voices, and they were arguing about her.
“A second chance? I’ve spoken to her about it.”
“She won’t remember anything.”
It doesn’t matter whether she remembers.Everything will remain inside her, if unawakened.”
“It will germinate inside her… until the time is right.”
Elena had no ide what any of it meant.
Then, Page 214-5
Elena talking to Damon about where people go when they die and the different levels you can end up on…
Damon- “More like Limbo, at least where we are. Then there’s the other city, which may have been where you went on your ‘vacation’ to the afterlife. Here they just call it ‘The Other Side.’ But I can tell you two rumors I heard from my informants. There they call it the Celestial Court. And there, the sky is crystal blue and the sun is always rising.”
Elena – “The Celestial Cort…” Elena forgot that she was speaking aloud. She knew instinctively that it was the queens-and-knights-and-sorceresses kind of court, not a court of law. It would be like Camelot. Just saying the words brought up an aching nostalgia, and — not memories, but tip-of-the-tongue feeling that memories were locked right behind a door. It was a door, however, that was securely locked, and all Elena could see through the keyhole were ranks of women like the Guardians, tall, golden-haired, and blue-eyed, and one — child sized among the grown women — who glanced up, and, piercingly, from a long way off, met Elena’s gaze directly.
That leads to the Guardians-
Some misc. Guardian mentions:
This Guardian was a tall woman with hair the color of Elena’s own – true gold – cut square at shoulder length… Pg. 195
… The Guardian was staring at her with a puzzled look in her true blue eyes. Pg. 196
When Elena runs to help the woman being whipped, she hears people whispering and something she picked up on was:
In fact with golden hair and those vivid blue eyes, she might even be a Guardian from the Other Side. Who knew –? Pg. 220
This leaves us with Elena looking like a doppelgänger for a Guardian. She had a second chance and some weird wing powers came back with her but she can never remember anything about them until she desperately needs the. She also has a strong beacon of an aura. Looks to me like this one is not as hard to figure out. All we need now is for Elena to remember so we can have all of the pieces fit together nicely.
Any thoughts on Elena and her return from her “final” death? What do you think all of this Other Side talk will mean?
