Default Re: Exploring the Subtextual - Robinton/Menolly in the DRoP series

Something to keep in mind: before Pern, Anne was a romance writer, so something of the subtext that Domini pointed out is going to be there. What's remarkable is the fact Anne DIDN'T subcom to temptation & turn the Harper Hall trilogy & that 'Lost' incident mentioned in TWD into another typical Harlequin romance! Kudos to Anne for some real maturity there!

OTOH, sometimes Anne really sucks where it comes to physics--that storm that blew them east to Cove....tropical storms blow west, which would mean that that storm would've had to put them 3/4 around the planet!

fortunately, someone was there to help out on that
