be going the predictable
route, wouldn't it?
, I'd recommend, if you don't want "spoilers", that you read Zero Sum Game
--or at least skim through it, as I did. Many of the characters's current statuses only make sense if you're familiar with what happened between Julian and Ezri--and Julian and Sarina--in that book.
I have some spoilers also regarding the fate of Donatra in Rough Beasts
I mean--by all means keep on reading my tale, but...be warned, there are a great deal of spoilers.
