What if she "outgrows" him too should be the foremost thing on his mind concerning Bud. She might dump him for his own good as well. Of course considering Monica seemed to be a normal woman at first, he could pick another seemingly normal woman who is a paranormal yet again. The Wapsi area seems to be chock-a-block full of them. Even in Monica's local clique, there is Shelly, Kath, and Tina. Not to mention the GGs. What are the odds?
The odds don't matter - the game's crook.

Except for Katherine (and the jury's still out on her - her arrival may be part of the pattern), all of Monica's paranormal gang are there because of various manipulations that brought them together wherever Monica was. If she'd been living in Mexico City, they'd be there.

As far as Kevin goes at hitting a normal of para girl, of course the game is rigged but you cant win if you dont play

But the only winning move is not to play.

Speaking about "injured animals" - Bud probably still comes under the "broken bird" category to some extent...

interesting outlook Kevin had. Figure out what you need and want. Make sure you get what you need whether you want it or not. Want and Need are not mutually exclusive. Kevin I think you've over-thought the process.

So he needed Monica in some form, and wanted her. Fine the relationship happened. But Monica wanted and needed him for awhile too. Now the need has changed for Monica and she left that drive her. But he still cares about her and has not give up on Monica. He'll be hanging around, living his life, and waiting to see what happened. Hope he don't wait too long.

Why he is in the part on that bench. That is the area where Alen threw the Frisbee that hit Deitzel in the head. It was the first step to their relationship.

Whoever coined the phrase "more fun than a barrel of monkeys" obviously never spent an afternoon cramming the little buggers into one.

Don't you be quoting British Philosophers at ME, young man! ;)

Yes, I know, this one was a "How con-vieeeeeeeeeeen-ent" moment. But we had to get 'em together, right?

And #### it, Pablo, you're gonna make me add another character to the cast list, aren't you?

Fixing things, eh? Might make for an interesting partnership.

Darin, obviously.

Though he might need to be careful in selecting that nice gal from out west, for many reasons. . .
KnightDelight wrote:What if she "outgrows" him too should be the foremost thing on his mind concerning Bud. She might dump him for his own good as well.
Though Monica and Bud are sort of on opposite paths. Monica is just starting out and trying to adjust to a totally new (to her) way of things, while Bud has already been there and is more trying to go back to what she used to be before everything started. In fact, with Bud it's more likely to be the opposite problem: she'll stay the same, while Kevin will grow older and change physically and possibly mentally/emotionally.

Of course, that assumes that he and Bud get into a more serious relationship. For all we know, he could instead end up becoming Atsali and Castela's step-father or something.

Huh. Katherine would do well to have a partner, and he's already 'broken in' and everything.... but no. Maybe someone else.

But I like your thinking...

Kev just needs to step out of the current circle, and check from a new angle. He's going to be ready when M finds her feet again, but when and where that leads is Paul Only Knows.

There could be a whole other round of nervous disclosures and trust-building waiting in the wings... and it seems to me that Bud is much more overtly powerful than Monica. Kevin's time with Monica might make him comfortable with the idea... or, he might draw back and say "no more paranormal drama, give me a nice human girl from Idaho!"
For what it's worth...

Bud isn't in the process of becoming an omnipotent engine of destruction who doesn't know her limits and is lashing out at and pushing away the people closest to her. She's already been through that. She knows what she is and how she got there. She's made a kind of peace with it that I don't think even Brandy or Jin has. Now she wants to rediscover what having a normal life might have been like.

UN like Monica, she's had millennia to deal with the trauma that made her what she is. I think that she'll be willing to share with whoever she lets into her life. I think she'll be open with them and do more than use them for a "chew toy".

For his part, Kevin wouldn't be coming into a relationship with Bud colt He may not know all the details, but he knows what Budis, and what she's capable of. It won't be a case of "Oh hey, my mostly normal girlfriend has just transformed into a dangerous Demigod and incidentally has mostly shut me out of her life except when she's feeling randy."

He'll be going into a relationship with Acacia with his eyes open, with a good idea of what he's getting into.

And I read the last lines as, "I'm not leaving, because I'm not the one who left."

That's my $.02, for whatever it's worth.

I'd like to see Bud's expression right now, along with what she's thinking. Or perhaps the word "TILT" is flashing on her forehead!

And what will we see Monday, "Meanwhile, back at the ranch..."?

well we need a MUCH larger expose of what Kevin's life is like... Girls do all this complicated debate about all their shortcomings, etc... and never bother to find out what problems and anguishes their poor BF has had to get to today...
