I picked Ian for two reasons.

The first is because I love him
and the second and more prominent reason is because I can't chose between Melanie and Wanderer. They're like a whole person to me and it's hard to chose.

But even as I'm writing this I think I like Wanderer a bit more than Melanie. Ugh! How can I explain!?

There were certain things about Wanderer that she gained from being inside Melanie's body and I don't think she would be the same if Wanderer just existed outside a host. Being inside Mel changed Wanderer and I liked them working and existing as one.

That's why I voted Ian

I chose Melanie, I think I can relate to her most. At the begining, I felt very sorry for her, because if I were her, I would be very bitter so I dont blame her. Wanderer was trying to shut her out & even threatened to kill her. I can see why she was enraged.

She's very strong & has a mind of her own [in the sense that she doesnt form her opinions from Wanderer's.]

If I got to choose 2 characters, I would also choose Jared. He's so much like Jacob [which is weird because I love Edward]. So much like him in the way that's he so real and he wears his emotions on his sleeve.

My favorite was Ian because he was so selfless and loving. He would have prefered Wanda being with Jared that going away.

Beside the fact that I love Ian to death, I chose him because he's the first person to truly accept a Soul just for the Soul. Melanie comes to terms with Wanda and becomes friends with her but Ian is the first one to truly appreciate Wanda as her own being.

i couldn't decide between ian and jamie. it's so hard to chose because they are both such good characters and are really nice to wanda and they both recognized that wanda was a different person than melanie whenever she was in her body.
"It's the safest time of day for us," he said, answering the unspoken question in my eyes. "The easiest time. But also the saddest, in a way...the end of another day, the return of the night. Darkness is so predictable, don't you think?" He smiled wistfully. " I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars."

I picked Wanda...because she just seems the most real...even though she's technically the only who isn't.

She was so kind, and she was able to overcome all she learned about being a soul, and look at the greater good.
She's just a really great person.

BUT Ian is in a close second. He was able to love her for her. Makes me teary, when I think about it. :roll: in a good way of course lol

I picked Ian for all the reasons already mentioned. He was just so intestesting to me.
Wanda as well but Ian just had all those great lines. :lol:
Jeb was also a very close second. I just loved him. He was so different to all the other characters and never failed to dissapoint.

I was torn between Ian, Jared, and Jamie. But I finally chose Ian. I just love how he's so sweet towards Wanda, and how he loves her for who she is. And he's so freaking funny.
