Forbidden Crush: Masterharper Robinton

I have a post up at Heroes and Heartbreakers, from Friday, which I neglected to link here on the day it went up: on Masterharper Robinton and forbidden crushes (from Anne McCaffrey’s Pern Series).

    As a young reader, as far as I was concerned, McCaffrey had set up Robinton and Menolly as a couple and when she tossed that aside for Sebel – for boring, boring Sebel – I was so enraged. It took a long time before I realised that she was an emotionally poor writer and I kind of forgave her. I think she didn’t realise that she was writing Menolly/Robinton.When she realised she was so shocked she had to clumsily retconn it with a handsome (and can I just add boring) young man and that stupid scene on the boat that broke my heart into pieces and was the end of the books for me. At least McCaffrey could have put the time into Sebel that she put into Robinton.

    Frankly, if they both love Robinton, they should bloody well both be sleeping with him.

  2. Perhaps one day, a frustrated reader will do their own version of those characters!

    I like your idea…except I doubt they were the only ones, and Robinton’s bed would eventually get very crowded….
