455 Lazy page; sorry. Work was super busy because of the holiday, and I've just been exhausted.

I really loved all your responses on the last page. I sometimes worry about how well-liked Angela is. She's a very flawed girl, and I don't know if I convey her good points well.

How does the saying go? People like you for your strong points but they love you for your flaws.

Angela is a very love able girl in the fact that she isn't perfect, nor is any of the cast of the Reborn and I think that's one of the reasons your fans love them so much. Well that and cause Adrian is a towering tower of blond hotness.

But I digress. We do love Angela for just being the magical teen with problems she has to deal with. We've seen her from the beginning and no one wants to see her go before the story is done.

Also good for "slow" acting poison. That gives them some time to get back and get the cure. Look at it this way if Angela is still in pain it means she's not dead yet.

Well if Angela wasn't flawed we wouldn't like her because she wouldn't be as real.

They better go find the Princess quickly before Angela goes from 'dying' to 'dead'.

Either that or it's PMS. *killed by a mob of angry women*

sfg Ditto Specter and Shadow.

Perfection would make us hate her. She's become a Mary Sue we would WANT to die. She's lovable because she feels real, not cardboard.

And Adrian is VERY hot. ;)

That would be an awesome way to get rid of Elijah, use Angela's power of Female PMS! Heyyy, now we know what her magic is! :D

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: I have to say I thought of that too ( PMS) when I saw that :)

@PinkPanda2333: It was one of my original thoughts, but she was clutching at her heart rather than her stomach.

Dying makes people realize some things about themselves. Maybe almost dying will help Angela become the heroine she needs to be.

@ladygoddessmonika: That's a tad unfair. Hasn't Angela always done the right thing as long as it's within her limitations? Doesn't that make her a heroine already?

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: I never meant that she was not a heroine or was not doing what she can but has yet to reach her full potential as a heroine. I think that death may enable her to finally awaken the abilities that we the reader have only seen her use sparingly and with no real control

@ladygoddessmonika: She has enough control to use it on command somewhat, and when all is said and done, she IS only human, they tend to be alot weaker and more fragile than demons.

Near death in this case would not bring about anything in my opinion due to the circumstance of said near death if it comes to that.

If anything a near death in this case, over a high school date no less, would more likely drive Angela to want to distance her self from anything magic or super natural related and just want to live a what resembles for a teenager at least a normal life. Dare I say a near death in this case might even cause the desired effect of wanting to distance herself from Adrian.

As we've said before Angela has already been through more then her fair share of things since turning 16. If she hasn't reached her limits yet she is either very close or she is a lot stronger then a lot of us thought. Time will tell for this one but I honestly think the events of the ring/poison and Kevin and Trent will leave a scare in more ways then one.

sfg @Specter- You know, you raise a scarily good point. As it is, she's had a rough several days. That's with OUT her previous escapades. I guess if it comes, we'll be seeing Adrian doing a heck of a lot more stalking!

@ffx2player: Well that is the negative extreme of possible outcomes if (still hoping) Angela lives. On a more positive extreme Angela can come to terms with the fact do to her past life and the ever present danger around her she shouldn't waste time and go with her gut feelings and instincts to life life to the fullest. Again here's hoping she picks the latter and lives to have the chance to pick.

sfg @Specter-I know, I just can't help but worry. She accepted her fate to a degree, but she's recently expressed a desire to be more than a bystander. That isn't the first time she's been that way, I wouldn't be surprised if she seriously attempts to learn magic soon. What more occurs, we'll have to wait and see. I DO think we stand a good chance of her stepping back and seriously considering her feelings for Adrian at the least! :)

replies @SpecterHSC: I think I should edit the character page to make Adrian's description "towering tower of blond hotness".
But thank you for your comments ^^

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: true, but you can be so flawed as to unlikeable

@ffx2player: Well, not all Mary Sues are perfect. I've seen Sues that are raging nasty bitches. And sometimes I worry that Angela tips too far in that direction.

@PinkPanda2333: Heartburn can be a symptom of PMS :P

@ladygodessmonika: You might be on to something there
