    Mike, Concerning the Death of Cymoril. . .

    Mike, I recall once reading that the inspiration for Elric's relationship w/ Cymoril was inspired on your own life, but something happened to that relationship (if I recall, I read on your behalf) and what ensued was that infamous death in The Weird of the White Wolf. I wish I still had the text, but alas, I do not.

    Well, sounds all like speculation to me, so I figured I asked the man himself than follow hear-say. I don't mean to pry. I'm just one curious fellow :D

    footnote:

    I encountered this tidbit on a short bio on Mike. Has anyone else see/heard of it that might shed light on the subject?

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is The Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.

          The movie should come up with an interesting riff on Cymoril's death.
          But that, dear reader, must remain a Secret...

            Thanks for digging up the old thread. I'd never heard that, but always felt it in the back of my head (and certainly having the story retold even more incestously in The Final Programme heightened the feeling that there had to be some thread of reality buried deep in there somewhere.)
