    Summary

    So, no, no near-lightspeed travel for me. No, how I got here is this: I churtened here. Churten’s great. Best discovery across the eighty-four worlds. Real testament to people working together. Gotta love churten. There’s no interval. No interval! I have no idea how that works. I don’t know that sort of thing.

    I failed physics in undergrad, you know. Yeah. Twice.

    (crowd makes sad noises)

    Aww, no, no, nusuth, aww, guys, you guys. It’s fine. I’m fine. I just became a comedian instead, and not a very good one, so now it’s your problem.

    Summary

    Their hand slides down Genly's shoulder and upper arm, coming to rest just above his elbow. "It's a kemmering-day verse. They speak it to youths, upon their first trips to the houses. And... if we are to speak technically..."

    "Oh." Genly tilts his head, registering-- and then answers, blithely, "Technically, we have crossed a great deal of ice."

    Summary

    I had been born in the bitter cold during the month of Thern to a traitor and a suicide. They had been neither of those things at the time, but a person's shadow can stretch through time as much as it can through space. We may walk in the direction of the sun not realizing that our shadow grows longer and longer behind us as darkness fast approaches.

    I couldn’t discard my mother’s legacy but I could continue it. But not in Ehrenrang or in the Domain of Estre or, indeed, on Gethen at all. I would join the Ekumen and go to the stars.
