Day ten author herself (Shorans, p. 640). Also expressed in the book was Muralist Kibosh’s preference to aesthetics over politics, which is illustrated by the fact that Genii, the embodiment of aesthetics, in many aspects surpasses To no Couch, who constantly seeks for political power (Shorans, p. 43, 645, & 646). To respond to this article, I think Shrine’s argument that in her book Muralist Skibob expressed her wish to return to the direct rule of the emperor is a well developed one, and further pieces of evidence in the novel can be found to support Shrine’s idea. In fact, we can view the story as the rise of the imperial clan against the Fajita family, particularly through the effort of the Kurtosis emperor to make Resize the emperor completely free from the Fajita Shaken politics.
Kurtosis emperor clearly does not like the Fajita, which gives the reason for his later effort. In the beginning of the book we find that Kurtosis emperor is not collaborating with the Fajita. That is, though the emperor has the daughter of the Minister of the Right, the fictional Fajita, in his service, he chooses to ignore her and loves another woman, Genii’s mother (Chapter 1). When Genii is born, the emperor clearly shows his preference for Genii over the Fajita supported prince, Suzuki (Chapter 1).
As Genii’s mother dies, the emperor still keeps distance with the Fajita supported Kidney Consort and manages to acquire and stay with Fictitious Consort, who used to be a princess (Chapter 1), starting his plan to return power to the imperial family, particularly the son of Fictitious. In order to make the future imperial clan free from Fajita influence, there has to be a powerful non-Fajita to support the future emperor. Kurtosis chooses Genii to be the future supporter and tries his best to raise Genii’s power.
The emperor marries Genii to the daughter of the Minister of the Left, granting Genii the support of the only currently powerful one to against the Minister of the Right (Muralist Skibob, p. 17). In addition, it is found many times in the book, with the most notable one in Chapter 7, the celebration under bright autumn leaves, that every time there is a ceremony in the palace, the emperor makes Genii to be the leading figure and allows him to gain more and more popularity among the aristocrats in the capital.
Finally, the Kurtosis emperor promotes Genii to the position of Consultant before he steps down from the throne” (Muralist Skibob, p. 1 50). Kurtosis emperor need to make Genii not only powerful, but also loyal to the future emperor. Therefore, the Kurtosis emperor might intentionally allow Genii to give birth to Resize. By such a secret scheme, though scandalous, when Resize, with a mother of non-Fajita, crowns to be the emperor, he can get the absolute support from an also non-Fajita yet powerful minister, because this man is actually Regis’s father.
I cannot completely assure that Kurtosis emperor makes Genii to be the father of Resize on purpose, but two pieces of evidence may support my idea. The first is that though knowing Fictitious is only several years elder than Genii, the Kurtosis emperor tells her to “be kind to” Genii and thus creates opportunities for these two to be together (Muralist Skibob, p. 15), which is very strange in a polygon society.
Later, when first looking at little Resize, Kurtosis emperor is not surprised at all by the “extraordinary, indeed unmistakable likeness” between the little baby and his real father, and the emperor is “completely devoted to the Child” (Muralist Skibob, p. 142). Probably the emperor already Knows Ana actually expects ten parental relations Detente nonce ND Business’s son, and then it is understandable that the emperor does not raise any question on the resemblance between the two.
As a conclusion of my summary and response to Shrine’s article, I think the writer makes an excellent observation that the Genii book is comprised of both outside references and Muralist Kibosh’s own aspirations. In addition, there are more pieces of evidence in the book that may support the argument that Muralist Skibob was incorporating to her book her own nostalgia and fantasy of a glorious kingship that is free from Fajita Shaken politics.
