The pairing of Ger alt and Yennefer is canon, despite an affair with Triss due to memory loss (the choice in The Witcher 3 is not taken into account here). All people familiar with the saga from games or books have already learned well that Yen's hallmark is her perfume with the scent of lilacs and gooseberries. During the main quest of The Witcher 3, players will encounter a very soulful composition. The speech is about the song "Lilacs and Gooseberries", which was written and performed by Priscilla, the beloved of the bard Buttercup.
Origin of the song
Of course, Dandelion has the fame of a famous talker, so it is not surprising that if not everyone, then many certainly know the history of the relationship of the most controversial couple. It was on the basis of his stories that Priscilla wrote a very soulful song. And indeed, in the lines of the song, some words are guessed that can be associated with real moments from the life of the Witcher.
The Witcher 3 Lilac and Gooseberry - Analysis
Let's start with the first phrase, where the following words sound: "among the scars, severe wounds." Everything is clear here, becausereferring to Ger alt's numerous injuries received during battles with countless monsters and people.
Then the players can hear "against fate". Here we can assume several options. One of them is a reference to the fact that the love relationship between the sorceress and the witcher began after the incident with the genie. We can also find confirmation of this during Yennefer's personal quest on Skellige, when she wants to find out the veracity of her feelings by canceling her past desire with the help of another genie. The second version is that their relationship was very controversial, with a large number of crises and breaks in relations. All players and readers know that Ger alt has always been willing to have fun with other girls. However, no matter what the circumstances, they still ended up together.
But a 100% reference to the genie appears in the 3rd verse, in the line "When I clothed desire in desire …". Readers of the saga know the couple's fate, but in The Witcher 3, the choice is up to the players. At the same time, it is simply impossible not to notice the sincerity of Yennefer's feelings, despite her difficult nature, when Ger alt is faced with the choice to continue or break off their relationship.
As for the chorus, there is an absolute mention of Yen's perfume with the scent of lilac and gooseberry. If you try to guess what the lines “you run from my dreams in the morning …” mean, then only the fact that neither the witcher nor the sorceress lives a quiet life that cannot allow them to enjoy each otherfriend as much as you want. Even in the game, all the sex scenes take place when some kind of threat or task hangs over the characters with the sword of Damocles. Not to mention that in most cases (if we, again, take the game) both characters are already busy and Yennefer in every possible way suppresses Ger alt's attempts to translate the situation into a romantic way (but not always).
Of course, everyone can interpret in principle any song in their own way, because only the author of this or that composition can tell the true meaning. But the fact remains - "Lilac and Gooseberry", dedicated to Ger alt and Yennefer, is a very beautiful and soulful song that describes their relationship in the best possible way. There are a huge number of cover versions from fans of the saga.
The complex lilac color very often causes difficulties in making combinations. In coloring, lilac belongs to the shades of the third order, so for its combination you need to take into account more nuances than with other color schemes.
