Yesterday, 04:53 PMConcerning Geralt is or isn't the savior of the world, MrBtongue just released a video about ""mature"", realistic games featuring Witcher 1 and 2.
19.12.2013 @ 17:32i don't buy that "children theory".
How should he know that she wants children and can't have any anyway? Nobody told him that. Okay, 95% of all sorcerer can't have children, i give you that, but most of them are fine with this or lived long enough to accept that fate. Yennefer was a special case and later even desperate to achieve her goal, but he couldn't know that. He can see her true nature, but he can't read her mind.
Also what was he supposed to wish for then? "Spare her life so i can get children with her"? Not exactly the best pick-up line
If it is so simple, why couldn't he just wish "spare her life" or "i wish that you can't kill her" and yet, the priest said that Geralt has to express the right wish not anyone. The djinn could still kill her indirectly. The djinn could destroy the whole town without killing the people of that town, then the people will think it was all thanks to Yennefer and will hang her for that. Bam, she got killed, but not by his hands. But if Geralt wishes to tie his fate to hers, the djinn can't do anything that could harm her, directly or not, because that would also harm him and he can't do that.
Also if he said "i want a child with her", she wouldn't say afterwards "you condemned yourself to me". This sounds more like he sold his soul to her.
In retrospect it sounds as a plausible explanation that Ciri is that child they wanted, but only in retrospect, because nothing in that chapter hints to that or am i missing something?
vivaxardas said:Actually, it was kind of obvious for me after reading the saga that in this wish he bound their fates together. If he did not, people who claim that (according to the books) Yen should be his ONLY choice in TW3 are plain wrong, and nothing actually binds Yen and Geralt at all (Ciri is all grown up and does not need them anymore).
This saga is way more interesting if Destiny is a real force, and both Geralt and Yen have to confirm to its demands. ›››
Well, i didn't want to undermine the wish, since it is still valid, nothing nullified that. Geralt still wished to be tied to her with all the consequences, that's for sure, but his motivations for that are more important than the actual wish for me. The wish just underlines his desire.
Whenever he is with another woman, he is always being reminded that she isn't Yennefer. He is besotted with Yen and that's already clear in that Last Wish chapter or for example with Essi:
Same with Fringilla.
18.12.2013 @ 23:35Yeah, you're right. i just remembered what the priest said about moving mountains and such things. She could also just make those wishes.

Gabe of Rivia said:Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the simple fact that Geralt made his last available wish enough to send the Geenie away? I thought all he had to do was make any wish at all, and the Geenie would have to take its leave. Well, you can't really call my memmory a good one, so maybe I'm just imagining things here. ›››
The djinn was free after the last wish, so who could have stopped him not to kill her afterwards? She wanted to imprison him again and then drain him of power for who knows how many years.
Geralt also told the djinn with his first wish "to go away and fuck yourself", i guess he was pissed.
