Is it just me, or does Bauble NOT fit the marionettes and plushes motif. No hinges; no stitches.So what if we saw Orio first, and there are mysteries as to her past and her name on the locket? The fact remains that she's a marionette-person. The one who really stands out is Bauble.We're obviously being misled into thinking that the main character is Orio, when the true silent protagonist is Bauble all along!
o_oI can't really comment...But it makes me really happy to have the context of 'Hinges' dissected like this.Thank you!
While we're on the subject of dissection, I noticed that the locket had one letter that was seemingly scratched off. I think it was an "N." For all we know Orio might not really be her name. On a completely separate note. If the floor collapses one or two pages from this point, I just want to say that I f***ing called it.
