  Resolved Question: Iain M Banks Player of
So after reading Iain M Banks, there was only one thing that was bothering me. Who was the girl who told Gurgeh 'You will win!' we never found out, and i guess im not clever enough to figure out who it was, but it must have been someone within contact, reason being: she took gurgeh behind a column where no one could see them, then held the place on gurgeh's shoulder where his mic was. She disabled contact's mic, and then told him he would win, which was true. At least i believe she was part of contact. Who do you think she was? Yay, one of the two 'fluzies' from later in the story? Say who and let me know why! Thanks =D
