Read-Along Final Week -- Discussion Post #1 (Chapters 28-31)

It's the final week of the INNOCENT DARKNESS read along. I'm getting *really* excited about CHARMED VENGEANCE releasing next week. What about you?


Let's talk about chapters 28-31. Feel free to discuss them on twitter using the hashtag #idreadalong. You can also post below (but please don't give away the end, you can talk about that on Thursday.)

What did you think about chapters 28-31 -- A TON of stuff is happening. 
1) James and Charlotte -- thoughts?
2) Chrlotte's solution -- best friend ever or stupidity?
3) Noli and V -- Noli realizes she wants V, V's still stupid until the end of 31. What do you think of their evolving relationship? Are you team V? Do you think it'll last?
4) KISS!!!

Some quick facts:
1) Charlotte's choice was always there. Always, from the very beginning (though the orriginal orriginal character wasn't Charlotte.) 
2) I had to research what nickname was used for Charlotte at the time, since I was pretty sure it wasn't "Charlie." It was "Lottie."
3) Some of my favorite lines are in this section -- when Noli realizes she does love V, when Noli and James are discussion Charlotte (why do bad things happen to good people), the part where V rebuffs Noli and she's all "She'd read enough stories to know how that turns out." And my favorite, when V says "Those are just stories, Noli, this is real."

Don't forget our LAST #idreadalong chat is Friday at 1 pm PST/4 pm EST. 

Have a great week!

1) James and Charlotte -- thoughts?
I can't believe James went from being that little brother who is all "Kissing is gross" to being so in love. It was kind of adorable.

2) Charlotte's solution -- best friend ever or stupidity?
Neither. She made a choice to use her death to save a whole race (and probably many human lives too) instead of dying with nothing gained.

3) Noli and V -- Noli realizes she wants V, V's still stupid until the end of 31. What do you think of their evolving relationship? Are you team V? Do you think it'll last?

I am SO Team V. He frustrated me by pushing Noli away like that but sometimes people make mistakes. I believe he really loves Noli and she really loves him. I think they can last.

4) KISS!!!
H.O.T.

Some quick facts:
1) Charlotte's choice was always there. Always, from the very beginning (though the orriginal orriginal character wasn't Charlotte.)
-Like I said in the chat I think it was a very good solution for them. I wonder how they will figure it our next time.

3) Some of my favorite lines are in this section -- when Noli realizes she does love V, when Noli and James are discussion Charlotte (why do bad things happen to good people), the part where V rebuffs Noli and she's all "She'd read enough stories to know how that turns out."

1. I was so happy for Charlotte and James. She needs a little light in her life now and they are perfect for each other.
2. I think what Charlotte is doing is noble. She makes the hard choice and it will give her death a meaning with which she will save a lot of lives.
3. I was dissapointed with V a lot with pushing Noli away, but I understood he did it out of love, even though it was a mistake. I think they are in for the long haul, there is nothing better than a friendship turned into love.
4. That kiss *swoon* Just perfect
