I'm just going to jump right into it.1.  I think Gavin (Dazen) killed Sevastian and that was actually the first time he used black luxin to forget. I think I've said this theory before, but I'll…Continue

So I re-read the series again, and the blue wight killing Sevastian still irks me. It seems to random and purposeful at the same time. There is a deeper significance, but I can't think of any. Any…Continue
