The problem with Remy and Soren is that they love each other, but they hate each other, too. Their personalities are diametrically opposite, and they always knew that. When they started to feel attracted to each other, they were in a hostile situation, forced together by circumstances beyond their control, with only each other to rely on. Of course they were going to start having feelings for each other! But under more rational circumstances, they realized that those antagonistic feelings were still there; they had learned to be friends and allies, but their romantic energy was directed elsewhere, for both of them.

As for Eli...well, let's just say he's the closest thing she'll get to a sibling, these days. They're family; they could never be in a relationship. They're protective of each other to the last, in the same way a sister or a brother would be. But they're not romantically inclined :) (less)

Zen and the Art of Political Resistance

In the wake of 4th of July and the verdicts coming down from the Supreme Court, I have been reflecting on all that is happening in our world, especially the sense of doom and hopelessness felt by so many. There is a palpable sense that the world is heading downhill for good, that there’s nothing…

“The wealthy and powerful become ever more wealthy and more powerful, while the poor and oppressed grow ever more enslaved.”
K. Makansi, The Reaping

“science, through advanced agricultural practices, through manipulation of DNA, through this and that and the other. But we are always wrong. There is only nature, and we are part of it. If we set ourselves in opposition to nature, it will always rise up against us, eventually. And it will win.”
K. Makansi, The Reaping

“We think we improve on nature through science, through advanced agricultural practices, through manipulation of DNA, through this and that and the other. But we are always wrong. There is only nature, and we are part of it. If we set ourselves in opposition to nature, it will always rise up against us, eventually. And it will win.” I sense that, like me,”
