Food for thought: Lina Inverse didn’t take credit for calling Gaav, but she did with Hellmaster even though the Lord of Nightmares actually did. With Gaav, she merely weakened him. Hellmaster dealt the final blow. So, she doesn’t take credit for it. However, she didn’t really…

Then you can say the same thing about Gaav since she used ragna blade with the intention of killing him. She just didn’t deal the final blow.

No. She used Ragna Blade with the intention of killing him, however, the spell did not work like she intended/hoped it would, and after the spell took full effect Gaav was still alive. Her attempt was unsuccessful.

The spell she used to kill Fibrizzo, however, worked exactly has intended, and after it took full effect - that is, not just after L-sama came, but after she left, since the spell worked as a temporary summoning, not having L-sama stay, but having her come, do this one thing she was called for, and go, - so, after the spell took full effect, Fibrizzo was, as Lina intended, dead. Lina herself being alive was not an expected effect, but we are not discussing Lina having managed to stay alive, we are discussing Lina having killed Fibrizzo.
Now, had Lina’s plan gone awry in any way, this would have been different. If she had intended for L-sama to kill Fibrizzo for some other reason, or generally to act differently, and had the situation just resolved in her favor coincidentally/unexpectedly, or had she just not intended tos summon L-sama with the spell at all, then yes, it wouldn’t have counted.

However, in the anime (which is what I am talking about sorry if unclear) L-sama explicitly says that Lina intended to summon her and knew she would die in the process. She also says Lina did it for Gourry but I’m going to ignore this part now and forever sorry while I go puke.
Ahem. So, in anime canon, the key part to Lina’s claims to credit for Fibrizzo’s death is EVERYTHING WORKING AS SHE INTENDED.

As a parallel example which will hopefully illustrate my thinking here, let’s imagine that there is a king. And his son hires an assassin to murder him. And the king is successfully assassinated, and his son inherits the throne.
Was it the assassin that killed the king? Yes, absolutely.
Was it the prince that killed the king? Also yes.
If the plan was found out and there was a trial, they would be both guilty of king’s death. Not just the assassin, but also the prince. Because it was his plan and therefore his doing.

As a conclusion: I know nothing about the novels, but in the anime continuity, Lina absolutely totally killed Fibrizzo.

Yet, Lord of Nightmares didn’t attack Hellmaster at first. She made it clear to him she is the boss and only attacked after he did. She also granted Gourry’s his desire, and partially Hellmaster’s. While Lina summoned LON, she certainly wasn’t the one making decisions including who lives or dies. Therefore, either Lina is taking undue credit in certain respects which isn’t her normal behavior or she identifies as LON as well.

Lord of Nightmares wasn’t taking orders from Lina. However, she was aware of Lina’s desires when she summoned her, and thought them at least significant enough to mention to her friends.

True that, she didn’t have full intention of following through with Lina’s plan initially, but she did end up doing exactly that. Yes, Lina’s plan was on the verge of failing. Yes, it was a big gamble. Yes, Lina couldn’t have known with 100% certainity it would work.

However, it did.

It’s possible that I am lenient here. I wouldn’t have considered this much involvement enough if Lina was facing, like, some bandit - “I cast a spell that summoned someone I hoped would kill them and they did although not immediately”. But with power disparity like one between Lina and Hellmaster? Yes, this counts. Lina came up with the best desperate plan she could. It worked. She killed him. It counts.

You may or may not agree with the POV that this is enough. You might think Lina is claiming too much credit. This is up to individual judgement. However, I am fairly sure that my logic in this case is Lina’s, and her possible identification with the Lord of Nightmares (which is an interesting topic in itself) does not have anything to do with it.

This is precisely my point. She had no control over LON and it was possible LON wouldn’t do what she wanted. In some respects she didn’t because Lina was brought out of the sea of chaos by her because of Gourry.

I agree the identification of LON and Lina is very interesting. Hence why I made the initial post. There’s more instances that raises eyebrows other than this one that really makes it seem maybe Lina is an avatar of LON? Or maybe Lina is different since coming out of chaos? Or why Lina is so powerful in the first place? Etc. I find it entertaining to say the least.

I think we have different interpretations of the events based on facts and I enjoy it. It’s nice to see some thought provoking conversations about Slayers.

Discussion on the events of Slayers NEXT involving the Lord of Nightmares.

What is very important to consider is Lina’s perspective, as in her own words she doesn’t remember what happened after her spell went awry. She feels she has forgotten something important. But she doesn’t know that LON didn’t fulfill her wishes right away, for all the she knows LON showed up and just did what she wished. The facts that she has available to deduce what happened she can get by observing the end result, which as it turns out is exactly the thing she wanted by casting the spell. So purely in her point of view, she might very well FEEL like it was totally her doing. Whether it was or not  objectively speaking is totally debatable, as evident by this entire conversation.
The weak point in my thinking though is what the others in the group might have told her, so eh who knows? Very cool to think about this stuff, and whether or not this was ever intended by Kanzaka.

It’s the World Wide Web

what if the reason nobody can tell fred and george apart is because they really are interchangeable

not in a ~it doesn’t matter~ way but like. molly and arthur used to worry that fred and george might turn out to be squibs because they weren’t doing any…
