Wow I thought that Vinne not had anyone to be afraid of
And I'm thinking here what would happen to have Tur Rabbit and Rachel on same place?
As to the age gap, I hate to say it but maybe Rabbit was looking for sort of a mommy replacement? Some (but not all) men who like much older women are looking for someone to look after them and care for them because they had mothers who were lacking in one way or another. Or in Rabbit's case he didn't have a mother at all.
Vinnie didn't like her, eh? I'm guessing he doesn't like most people his kid brother has dated.
I think that it really depends on a) personality and b) how the older partner works with a younger partner acquiring life experience. It doesn't work if the older partner's purpose in courting a younger partner is the relative inexperience of the younger person. There has to be some equal ground in the relationship where both parties contribute to keeping their connection strong. There's a lot of challenge - a 20 year old simply doesn't have the experience of a 40 year old, which makes a relationship in danger of being unequal.
In Rabbit and Rachel's case, I don't like it. Not because of the age gap. Rabbit is traumatized, Rachel is in the chain of command, she is in a position of power. No, no, no, no and, let me think about this... No. There's so many things wrong with this situation... gah! And it doesn't even have to be something overt or even intended. The power of command leaks through. And she was his counsellor? Ye gads. So, so, so wrong!
In the Canadian military, if you develop a relationship with someone in your COC, you have to report it and one of you gets moved to a different chain. You can't have one person in a relationship making decisions about the other's career.
Didn't the Coven have rules against this? How was her ass not fired? Or was it?
This OMGWTFBBQ post brought to you by copious amounts of coffee.
Yay I figured out how to re-post (lol)
I thought that I'd hate the bitch who took Jordan's eye, but she looks (don't say hot, don't say hot) nice.
As long as they're both legal I don't really care about age differences. If Rabbit had have been two years younger I would've definitely had problems, but I think if two people have genuine feelings for each other it's nobody's business but theirs.
If she has the deepest insight into all the characters, then I can't wait to see her exploit their fears when the story comes full circle
