This is the official Dead Vanyel Party discussion post!

Whether it's your first read or your millionth, there's always something worth talking about--and rambling at length about at that. Confide in your fellow Lackey fans--who's your fave? What books do you eat up with a spoon? Does Vanyel end up as a gay Companion after the Mage Storms books? Or is he reborn as the very subtle baby herald "Vanel"? If so, does that make Stef his life-bonded companion "Tylenol", or what? And is Ma'ar REALLY dead? (No!)

Life's little questions, and we all want to talk about them.

Anon and unanon are currently allowed on this post. As of August 9, only anon posting will be allowed, in order to foster an anonny sense of anonymousness, in the vein of everyone's favorite meme ;P. The exception to the anon-only rule is the Introduction Thread, where you can introduce yourself and meet fellow players.

I definitely agree with you in favor of nuance, and have had some personal experiences that, while incongruent with my sexual identity, were still very valuable and not something I want to deny ever happened! Vanyel's confusion in Promise was something that I didn't really understand the first time I read the books, but it really resonated years down the road.

I do think that, of all subjects for fandom to tread carefully around, this at least is a good one. Not saying it shouldn't be done ever, but it should be done carefully :)

(I just remembered that Gilda has written Van/Shavri too, over here, in which they both spend the scene thinking about other people).

yeah - all meaningful topics in fics benefit from being done with skill, informed by personal experience, and in context with canon. Van/Shavri is canon, so I don't see how there's any treading careful to be done if people want to write about it in that canon context? (Or Van/Snowlight, etc).
