Oh, I didn't think that at all Thomas XD I just thought you guys misinterpreted what I said.

Now, I agree its more likely to happen for a human. Perhaps and interesting plot about an assassin.

Some of my favorite stories have been about the villain reformed. I love that plot line. It's so fun to see the transformation that takes place. However, that tends to only work with someone who hasn't been truly evil in the first place, just someone who sort of fell into it, or was born into it, but whose heart wasn't in it. Usually, those characters can't be pushed into truly horrific deeds.

One of those types I really enjoyed was a Regency Historical by Mary Jo Putney, called "The Rake". Very good.

Reforming a "Rake" in a Regency works very well...some of my fave plot lines, too! :D

Lol, so back on topic. Can anyone think of a few situation where perhaps this could happen? I myself have a few I've dreamed up every now and then. :oops:

Kaela, have you read Christine Feehan's Carpathian series? This happened with one of her h/h pairs.

Problem is, you either have to wait a while to write the book, or completely skip many years (as C. F. did) and go on with the story. Worked okay with C. F.'s stories since they stop aging after maturity. Would work in Lynsay's, too, but we'd have to ignore the timeline and let time advance a decade or so to age the younger one. I'd think it would be difficult to write, though.

Another great thread, can't read all in depth right now but I've wondered this too, think it's ironic that we're fine w/ 100s or even 1,000s yrs of diff b/t some of the couples but the idea of Steph running across her mate at 15, or even the twins at...what, 16/17? is...yea;
side stepping all the "developmental" stuff, love is love, so I don't think it'd be creepy for a young person to run across their mate, creepy is when someone older tries to force the love and is only interested in someone b/c of their age, especially the physical part, but u can't control the nanos! they're c-razy!
