Re - Note: All Tiffany's adventures seem to have a connection to winter...
The old Kelda said to Tiffany in Wee Free Men, "You see and hear what others canna', the world opens up its secrets to ye, but ye're always like the person at the party with the wee drink in the corner who cannae join in. There's a little bitty inside yer that willnae melt and flow."
After the wintersmith crowned Tiffany with the crown of ice, he said to her, "Now it is done," and she replied, "There is something I have to do, too." Although what came about was what the Summer Lady brought about every year, Tiffany did it in a way that was human. Finding herself at the point of balance between frost and warmth, she remembered what the Kelda had said. "Time to thaw. She shut her eyes and kissed the wintersmith..." -- Emen 09:12, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
