Same here. I imagined that, due to their being mentioned, they would play a larger role in the end. At least have them speak. Marcus spoke to everyone's shock. Why not them? *sigh*

So, have you two decided who is the bigger Aro-lover yet? Alcylone and Tegan, that is.

My dad collects coins (ooh, pretty shiny), and some people would think that he was mad for buying something that's worth added up to $3.85 for over $80. On the other hand, my dad probably thinks that $80 is a perfectly reasonable price for a 1975 (or whatever. I don't collect coins) mint set.
I don't know if this counts, but I skip my lunch every day at school in order to hoard up my money so that I can spend it on nice things later.
A collector may do crazy things in order to add to their collection, but never unreasoable.

I think a character becomes more endearing when you know they love, or at least committed to, someone else and vice versa. I hope someone gets where I'm going with this...
