True (as in, real, not ideal as the term is usually used) love is actually a mix of selfish and unselfish love. It's messy, it sometimes holds onto the past. It can be very far from what love should be. But it's also  the closest to heaven that most of us get in terms of feelings.

Suspiria (we need to figure out a nickname) does love Crest for Crest. But she probably ALSO missed Kin. And she very much is not in control of her emotions right now, so getting pushed over the edge, not so much.

She needs a Cool Down Hug right now.

@ Kamui {love your handle, by the way} = Totally agree.. whether Suspiria loves Crest or he's being affected is really immaterial to the point that really matters is getting Suspiria to realize she is manipulating things around her to alter reality and help her learn to control her powers and not do that anymore.

@ Bulmabriefs = Yeah... but I'm of the opinion that Love is used often as a catch-word explanation for many things and most of the time the wrong connotations are assigned to it.  True Love is more about the person loved and not about yourself.  When you truly love someone.. you care more about them than yourself, not about possessing their affection not about having the affection you feel for them returned. Love is not selfish. Before her powers were boosted she gave Crest that unique magic sword the SHE crafted for him.. it was clear she really liked him...not because he was like Kin but because he was Crest... kind, honest, ...a little shy but thoughtful, loyal and heroic in his own way.

My point is if Suspiria really loves Crest, I think he would be the LEAST affected of all those around her.  She did not try to possess Crest's affection when she changed she did not try to consummate her affection for Crest!  No, she kissed him goodby - because she loved him she did not want him anywhere near her to be caught in any danger from her actions!

'Why did Starlord try to shoot Gamora?  Because she asked him to promise to do so... and he loves her wishes are more important to him than his own needs, to the point he's willing to hurt himself to do as she asked...because he loves her!'

"Love is not about yourself.. its about the one you love."

I mean, attacking her would be pretty damned moronic of them.  The only real solution would be for Suspiria to do whatever's needed to properly get her powers in check.  Fighting her would be the worst call they could make, they also know that she's warping stuff without conscious effort and apparently figure the best idea is to shit-talk her?  Moby and the others aren't exactly being very smart right now.  One characteristic that we DO know that Crest had from the start was his analytical mind, and he's retained that as well even when outside of Suspiria's range, so he's the most likely one to go "shut up, this isn't the time to go poking the tiger with a stick, this is the time to figure out what the tiger needs in order to be sated."

Man, it's looking bleaker and bleaker for Suspiria. When will they all attack her, and when will she beat them all back while defending herself?  ??? Which side will Crest join?  ???

That doesn't necessarily follow.

If you like someone, you might try to change them. But if you love them, well...

Change isn't synonymous with love. In fact, it's very conditional love. But ideally, we would be loved for who we are, not for who someone else was. Or how we should be.
This is not to say such doesn't push us to be our best self. But there are so many damaged people who think they aren't good enough.

Hmm, I don't really put too much thought into what their voices should sound like.  There's a general sort of voice I hear in my head, but it's vague and fuzzy.  It doesn't sound exactly like anyone.  But I think you guy are on the right track in how you're saying Bernadette should sound.

Seriously. Meteo him.

Also, why are they mistaking a young man growing in confidence and ability as magical ove?

Meh. Meteo him now and sort it out later.

Unfortunately now it's time to get serious. I think she's right.

Crest is a rebound for Kin, who she hasn't fully been able to grieve.

This is probably not saying that those two don't like each other, or don't have a chance in the long run. She just has to stop thinking of her as an extension of Kin.

On a more serious note, I think I have a similar problem. I project my past relationships onto my current one, thinking Kara is going to behave like Kelly, and so on. They haven't, and this is how I know this one's a keeper (unfortunately she's taken, so we're just friends).

Okay, enough seriousness. Do one for Suspiria and Crest. I was thinking Katie Perry (constant hair changes, and watching the music video Wide Awake) for Suspiria and for Crest... I can't realy get a bead of him because yeah half of his story got overshadowed by someone else. Maybe Rick Moranis in LSoH.

Dude, I put Rick Moranis's voice in Chapter 1 lines for Crest and started cracking up.

This is why I say Emily Blunt and not say... Catherine Hepburn.

A voice which is soft and feminine but yet somehow rugged.

I actually think Mariah Carey, honestly, is a better sample of May though. Sorta sexy, something of a diva, sometimes deadpan (calmly saying "I will hunt you down" in this song), and a little strange (unicorns).

Especially feel this video on the Crest date.
