    New episode

    It's nice to learn something new about the Order of the Crest. Seems like Priscilla will be useful in the future when the Pope decides to go after her. Faith can be quite powerful and we haven't seen much of that yet so plenty of time to get some of that.

    So Alexis is fine with damaged goods. It'd be one thing if she was just experienced. It's another is she whored herself to get him killed...

    That said, I like how Alexis finally grew some balls when he was tasked to "save" the whore. Theo has become a great politician...

    Spunky.

    But how much of that was Siluca's plan? Sure Alexis considers them a friend but she suggested it knowing what needed to happen.

    Siluca seemed surprised at how forward Theo was about the whole thing. She also looked dejected once Alexis insisted he was unable to fight. Theo just pulls through with earnest feelings like he always does.

    It's one thing to whore yourself out because you don't care, but it's another to do so when you value your chastity but also put your duty above all else. I don't look down on her so much for that.

    It's the reason she did it. Yes it was political, but it was to get a psychopath and his zealots because she was losing the war that she didn't need to actually fight.

    It wouldn't be a any different if she went for the Viking girl's brother, because she wanted a fleet. The correct decision would have been to begin negotiating peace with Alexis, through Villar.

    There's hints from the witch burning that the Mage's Association leadership is behind this entire conflict.

    You're pretty much saying she's wrong to fight them, which I don't really have an opinion on.

    I'm addressing that I don't think she treats her chastity lightly (which is implied by the term 'whoring'), but that she instead views her duty as being that much more important.

    Isn't whoring about selling your body period? I don't think it matters if the compensation is high or not. Selling sex makes you a whore, maybe not for life, but at least at that moment. I'm pretty sure she'd do it again though, like you said, if the price is right. Therefore, whore.

    Spunky.

    That's not all the term means however. You can argue that anything you do is a choice and transaction.

    Yet, one does not describe a woman as a whore, if a soldier captured her children and threatened to kill them unless she "willingly" had sex with them.

    It's a derogatory term relative to the more neural prostitute. I don't agree that it's usage is about selling your body period without any attached connotations.

    Which funnily enough (though agreeably enough), means that "to whore"(verb) is more neutral compared to the term "whore" (noun). I'm quite firm about the latter.

    The above isn't actually as contradictory as it sounds. You can prostitute yourself once, like she did, without being a prostitute - which implies practising it professionally, or making a habit of doing so.

    In that sense, you can whore without being a whore. (added oxford dictionary note since we're all referencing) W.jpg

    I actually think both whore and prostitute are derogatory... Being a prostitute isn't exactly the most popular job that anyone and everyone wants to do.

    That said, I'm totally fine with a woman selling her body for sex. It's hers to sell. I don't think anyone should be forced to do it though.

    What makes her action so appalling is in line with what Ryll said. She loved someone else, but fucked a dude she just met to kill the one she loved for no reason whatsoever. However, even if she did have a perfectly heroic reason, it wouldn't change the fact that she whored herself.

    Spunky.

    Episode 19

    -------------------------






    Alexis's battle was pretty, but to be fair the first battle wasn't as impressive as it seemed to be.

    1) Alexis had an overwhelming number of forces, and
    2) The dumbass in the castle decided to send his forces out.

    The second battle was much closer and Alexis did well to turn it into a siege, where he'd have the advantage. In reality you really can't anchor ships with precision like that, but whatever.

    This show does well with all the off-the-shoulder looks. I very much like it.

    The berserker fight was pretty comical. The Nord king had like...200 gallons of blood.

    But I like Alexis' hot ninja secretary.

    It's also interesting that Alexis is more of mage, which is unusual for the Lords in this setting. Thus, adept assistant and not another mage.

    Now I hope we get to see Aishela, the ninja secretary, and the werewolf twins shred some shit.

    Just binged from episode 12, and a lot has happened. Very enjoyable.

    So, the Union is cool withe the Altirk Treaty? I would think one of the two major powers would have been suspicious of a new, third 'alliance' to contend with. I know that happened a bit back, but I guess they had no choice but to let it materialize?

    The Altirks are just a bunch of friends who opened shop next door, who are also on friendly terms with your boss.

    Doesn't seem too bad.

    Alexis went from wishy-washy loser to Alpha+ in two episodes. I fully support this, because the build up was that he was reluctant to fight without good reason. Until he was given one, and then he started to crush shit. He was pretty much the only person in existence who could convince Marrine to stop being a bitch.

    I like how he used his army to make a rose. Fucking privilege!!!

    So... half of the anime was utter pointless bullshit then? Sure we still have this enemy in the shadows left, but the majority of what we watched was about THOT raving like a lunatic and killing people, and somehow, it all gets resolved in one episode. And she didn't even get a slap on the wrist...

    Spunky.
