*snickers* Okay, so I have a bit of a love for my favorite pairing. Sue me. They're pretty, they're smart, they have the sexy sex, and they're really pretty.
In honor of the Lilah/Wes month-ender, yours truly has a new layout (with love to katemonkey
for the graphics and relentless web standards pimping
) at Double Indemnity
. Which is all shiny.
Today's "Meta Day" which really just means, "share your thoughts on the relationship."
Like this: I think it's fascinating that as early as "The Ring" that Lilah and Wesley were unwittingly paralleled. They both tend to be observant problem-solvers who spend less time thinking about everyone's feelings and more about how to solve the problem for their team. Notably? In "Untouched" both Lilah and Wesley have fairly effective strategies in working with Bethany, and it would seem both have personal issues relating to the girl. Then, of course, there's "Billy" which wittingly/unwittingly I think leads directly to the two of them winding up in bed together. There's also that weird shared sense of being "the emergency back-up hobbit" with both characters; while both are clearly talented and are probably the most obvious leaders of their various organizations, there's always a Byronic golden boy who stirs heart, even if said golden boy has eviloverlord.com bad plans (that nonetheless work or fail).
I also think that had ME capitalized on the "frustrated talent irritated by being second banana and scapegoat for the Hero" aspect, this would have been the best villain team ever, and Darth Rosenberg's exploits would be a distant second there...
