There's no doubt Davies is one confused kid. One of those points of confusion is his biological reaction to the sight of Morn, for which SRD has used (and I think coined) a somewhat unique description. What is it?

This is a nice challenging question, IrrationalSanity! :thumbsup:
I've been thinking for days about the solution to this quiz question and feel no closer to it! :!:
I'll think on it some more and may do the "text-research" approach in about a week's time, if no one else guesses it by then. :read:

That's quite alright. It has been quite a while since I read the books. I'm also relying on my somewhat nebulous memory, so I might be remembering it wrong, too. (Note, for this reason, unlike my normal MO, there is NOT a hint embedded in this message).

IS, I haven't found the unique descrription of Davies' confusion when looking at Morn anywhere in the relevant Forbidden Knowledge chapters, but am not giving up, yet.

I will start scouring the A Dark & Hungry God Arises chapters to see if I can find it. 8O

I have this fear that I'm conflating things again, since I came up with the question from memory. I haven't read the books in a while, and I don't have access to a set to cross-reference. If you don't find anything soon, I'll give you what I am thinking, and let you have the question for your efforts.

Thank you, Sanity, that is much appreciated! I've had to postpone "scouring the A Dark & Hungry God Arises chapters" lately, but will try to get back to doing that in the next three days.

Well, IrrationalSanity, I have now checked all three Davies chapters in A Dark & Hungry God Arises, and have not found any reference to a Donaldson-created word that describes how Davies feels when he looks at Morn. I admit to being stumped. :confused:

...But there's still nine more Davies chapters in Chaos and Order, and five more Davies chapters in This Day All Gods Die. Hmmmm...might be giving up too quickly. :!:

No problem. I'll throw in the towel on this, as I'm ever more convinced that my mind transposed it from another place. (Though if so, I'm 99.97% sure it came from Mordant's Need - you maybe could get extra credit for telling me where in that work it came from... :D ). The term I was looking for was making his "throat ache". It isn't a made up word, but a phrase that I've never encountered outside of SRD's work.

Hmmm, that sounds familiar...for some reason I associate it with Angus though, not Davies...definitely from the Gap though.

Like I said, I've created enough self-doubt that I'm just going to reward Cord Hurn with the win for his efforts in searching. It is also possible that it is a term SRD likes, and has used in both universes.

Thank you, IS. Here is the new Gap Quiz question:

What reason does Nick give to Morn for why he went to Enablement Station a previous time?

Correct!! Nick told Morn he went to Enablement Station previously to test the anti-mutagen drug for Hashi Lebwohl!

LOL, not yet, (I can't believe how long this is taking) but I do have a question for you...

Why did Hashi claim to have reqqed Milos Taverner, and why did he actually req him?

:D

I think Hashi claimed to req Milos because Milos has extensive familiarity with Angus. The second part of your question I don't know, and must give it some more thought.
