Rachel And Rabbit - Love Hurts WIP by LJ-Phillips Rachel And Rabbit - Love Hurts WIP by LJ-Phillips
Rachel's final look is slightly different She's much older in the final design. In her mid-30's, Rabbit's about 20 or 21.

It's been brought to my attention that a couple of the newer watchers don't know Rachel, Rabbit's ex-girlfriend. So I'm re-uploading the relevant pages from Silver Bullet Skins-spin-off. They show her walking out on Rabbit (didn't help his abandonment issues at all.)  Apologies ot those of you who've already seen these pages. 

Rachel chose to defect to the Coven's rival agency, The Harkers. The Harkers have secrets even darker then their magic. 

Rachel, like Tyr, was a driven over-achiever who hid her issues under a mask of hyper-competence. Like Tyr, she came across as very cold to those who didn't know her. Her addiction wasn't suppressants but rather illegal blood magic. 

Notes:  Like Jordan, Rachel is a very powerful psychic and Adept. 

Vinnie never got on with Rachel. He thought she was very cold while she thought he was little more then an animal.

Unlike Jordan, Rachel had no moral issues psychically rooting around in people's minds. 

We'll be seeing more of Rachel in the main Skins comic

so this is Rachel

Yep, this is Rachel. We'll be seeing more of her. She was alot like Tyr in some ways - driven, hyper-competent and driven but alot more messed up :nod: In some ways, she helped Rabbit get over his terrible ordeal and explore his kinkier needs. She was a fairly responsible playmate for him until the last few months where she became increasingly unstable. She never told Rabbit she loved him until the night before she left. 
she's hurt Rabbit
I will have trouble liking her
that being said, if she helped Rabbit get through his worst nightmare, maybe there's some good to her.
I will try to keep an open mind
sometimes it's frustrating when I want to be angry at someone who deserves my anger, but then I can feel/sense their side of the story or their point of view. I don't have to agree, but once I know where they're coming from, it's harder to stay angry. This is something I was "gifted" with some years back, because, yes, it happens IRL too.

Oh yes - her final design and back-story is a little different
She's much older then Rabbit in the final design.
She did - she was his supervisor and counselor at the Coven. So while she helped him, she also took advantage of that trust to seduce him.
She does have a very tragic story but I'm not sure if it justifies her actions.
Oh dear, I'm sorry to hear that. Nothing too tragic, I hope :hug:
nothing tragic, no, just little fits of anger

Oh, I'm so glad to hear it wasn't anything tragic :hug:

Knowing what we know about Rachel... the Harkers... Jordan's eye... this really gains some nuances it didn't have before.  Makes me devoutly wish you were independently wealthy and had a burning desire to focus on the Skins universe to the exclusion of all else.  :D

I'm so glad :) Yep, it certainly puts things in a different light, right?
Me too :( Or in a position to earn a living through Skins. But that will happen one day, hopefully in the next year or so. And then, it's update city, I promise!
T.T sad I has the feels for rabbit
