Open to debate.

Crest and Suspiria had about one or two hangout scenes before her change. They were kinda just friends though.

Suspiria does kind of like Crest, but there's also a healthy dose of Replacement Goldfish.

Crest on the other hand... didn't appear to be under a love spell. Most of his behavior was fairly normal (kinda a shy next-door neighbor romance), except for his drive to train. I couldn't figure out where that came from.

(I don't see anyone under a charm spell getting this argumentative)

Moby, it felt like she was acting out Suspiria's feelings, it was really super-obvious that something was wrong. Crest? Not as much, anyway.

WRONG Moby!

Crest is holding the Sphere of Antimagic.. HE 'Right NOW' is the LEAST affected than anyone present... if he still loves Suspira..
then it most CERTAINLY is HIS Love, not from any outside influence!!!

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more
You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here in my heart
Always!

I won't confirm or deny anything, but I just have to say something about Occam's Razor.  it only makes sense to use it for real world problems.  I see people use it all the time to analyze fiction, and it makes no sense to use it that way.  Fiction does not comform to the "simplest explanation is usually the best" rule, not at all!  Fiction is often contrived, complex, convoluted.  In fact, even when it's trying to hide it's contrivances, it's always at least a little contrived.  Writers certainly don't choose plots on the basis of "the simplest answers," they choose whatever seems interesting or exciting.

If anything you'd be better off using Opposite Occam's Razor for fiction.  "The most complicated answer is usually correct."  That's probably true more of the time!

I would call it Tolkien's Dagger. "Whatever answer is most in line with what the author wants, complicated or not, is usually what will happen." So named for the fact that Tolkien's work was almost certain to exactly include whatever he planned, in his case mostly being an excessive amount of history and linguistic information, Norse myth with Christian overtones, and stealth humor (Bag End represented a cul de sac in England filled with old people).

Which effectively also means Dan Shive's work will feature a huge amount of transformations and esp gender stuff :-*, while Tom Siddons will have creepy imagery and high level philosophy  :-X, and Brion Foulke will tend to keep you guessing with false leads.  ???

Indirectly unaffected.

Moby is basically acting as a proxy for Suspiria's feelings. She's one horny gal.

OH MYyyy! The Divine Red Lobster Speaks! :)

Lol.. thanks for the input Brion...and please don't read too much into our 'arm-chair' commentary..{snicker}... I for one GREATLY enjoy your story as it unfolds.. but point taken about applying 'real-World' logic to a fantasy world!  :-*

I just hope Suspiria can forgive herself and Crest can forgive her and still care for her even if her reality is not what she believes it to be!  "With great power come Great Mental Illness!"

But it would be a shame for her to loose her sanity and love merely because she is like a Super Dr. Strange, I hope Crest can step up to the plate with his own compassion.. and SAVE her from that!

As the Bards of Jefferson Airplane put it well... if repetitively ~

"Don't you want somebody to love
Don't you need somebody to love
Wouldn't you love somebody to love
You better find somebody to love, love"


Perhaps...that's the key to her sanity as Crest 'seems' to be the one person unaffected by her reality warping?  Because... Suspiria loves him...
