One of the many things I love about these books is that there are two forms of telepathy, the Wit and the Skill, and I have such a big kink for telepathy. ;-)
I had heard of the books for the Fitz/Fool pairing, but my OTP turned out to be Fitz/Nighteyes! ♥ Yes, I am aware that Nighteyes is a wolf. :-P Fitz and Nighteyes are Wit-bound (the telepathy between humans and animals) and Nighteyes' thoughts kept reminding me of the wolves in Shifting III. I tried to fight it, but Fitz's attraction/rejection attitude was too close to gay denial and I ended up falling for the pairing. Considering the way their bond keeps deepening and Fitz sometimes calls Nighteyes "my heart," it looks like the author sees them as a pairing too.
On to the Fitz/Fool pairing: they have a Skill-link (the telepathy between humans), and more than that, they're Catalyst and White Prophet (meaning they share a destiny, they're two sides of the same coin, yaddi yadda, if you watch Merlin, you know what I'm talking about…). In the first trilogy, their relationship alternates between not-particularly-slashy and oh-that-was-very-slashy, like the forehead-touching scenes. ^^ But in the third trilogy, the Fool is much clearer about what he wants, he even calls Fitz "Beloved," and what a pity nobody seems to have explained to Fitz that guys can have sex together too. *bangs head* There's an appearance from Jek, who's met the Fool in the second trilogy, and she turns out to be the ultimate Fitz/Fool fangirl, not that Jinna wasn't hinting at it too.
Anyway, Nighteyes declares at some point that the Fool is pack, therefore making Nighteyes/Fitz/Fool my OT3. <3 The way things develop between them after that only confirms that possibility.
What I also love about these books is that some things seem perfectly natural in the flow of the story, but are actually very
- Nighteyes remaining in Fitz's mind when he was having sex with Molly and commenting on it! ^^
- Nighteyes taking control of Fitz's body that one time he was exhausted and had retired inside his mind, Molly arriving and Nighteyes making love to her! *splutters*
- Molly enjoying Fitz's passion in bed while he was actually channelling Verity making love to Kettricken a few rooms away! *splutters some more*
- Verity exchanging bodies with Fitz and going to get Kettricken pregnant with Fitz's body! o_O God, I adore Verity and I adore his son Dutiful.
- Fitz commenting that he and Nighteyes were like a knife and a sheath! XD Phallic imagery, you're doing it right.
- The Fool asking Fitz if he wished to couple with Nighteyes! \o/ See, I told you the author was seeing them as a true pairing.
