Being the third and probably last installment of this meta series.
So the fun—or aggravating, take your pick—thing about writing meta for an unfinished canon is the myriad ways one can misjudge an arc. I’ve wound up with egg on my face before (Mary Russell is having a marital crisis! Snape/Lily is too bathetic to ever happen!) so I’ve learned not to overcommit to any theories I form about characters and their arcs.
Fortunately one doesn’t have to overcommit to talk about the Faceless Man.
( devices and desires )
And thus endeth my tale.
