Oh geez, that is probably one of my favorite quotes too... that whole part in the book was also my favorite just because you really got to see how much Ian wanted and loved Wanda... it was really sad!
I'm probably a bigger fan of ian and wanda just because we really haven't seen mel and jared 'in action.' It's always just been jared speaking to her, but kind of through Wanda, so we really didn't see how they really were together (until a little bit at the very end).
And so the lion fell in love with the lamb.

My fave Ian quote is when he says
I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful.
It makes my heart sing!!!!

I think I fell in love with Ian more than i did Jared.. and that i favor Wanda and Ian's relationship more is because.. well.. Ian didn't have any reason to love Wanda the way he did.. She was really the enemy but he still did..

another thing is that he fell in love with her, not Mel's body or her looks, but Wanda's personality
it wasn't looks for him, it was the 'inside' that counted.. i guess lol

and then the fact that he said "I held you in my hand, Wanderer. And you were so beautiful." just added to the fact that Ian is the most wonderful man ever :D and how he loves every part of Wanda, her personality, her soul, everything.

I love it.

When Wanderer first got to the caves and Jared punched her I was crying because I was a Mel/Wanderer/Jared shipper (I think that works) at first. Then when Ian started being nice to her I realized he was meant for Wanderer and started rooting for him.

You know, when Wanderer thought enough about Ian that he would be able to step right into Wes's place, Ian's blip totally fell off my radar. I was honestly pleasantly surprised about what happened in the end (albiet I felt bad for what'sherface).

It wasn't that I was against the thought of Ian, I mean, how he sat and mourned with her was ridiculously touching. I just remembered her disregard for the brutal side of humanity and how Ian had throttled her in the begining, how he was able to be so agressive with Kyle and what she realized would be the possible implications of having a relationship with such a creature.

Granted, I saw him coming a mile away, but I honestly thought enough of Wanderer's character that she wouldn't let him get as close as she did. I kept awing at how topsy turvy she was being, how indecisive she was. Throughout the story, she had been able to draw really solid conclusions, and yet this aspect of human interaction seemed beyond her capability to find a solution (although we know she DID ultimately choose self-sacrifice, which also seems like something of a cop-out, odd).

Still, good for her, getting to understand love like the rest of us learn it (slow and steady wins the race!).

PS. Although I dream of a love like Ian, my actual dreams are still compromised of Jareds...it's a wonder men and women who are are literarily astute ever find love.

And to think he wanted to kill her. Though the course of the novel the lines (both Ian's) that I loved most were:

"You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me"

And:

"I held you in my hand Wanderer. And you were so beautiful"

Love those lines. So pretty :D

"You. Are. Not. Leaving. Me"

"I held you in my hand Wanderer. And you were so beautiful"

are definitely my two favourite quotes. I think that Ian loved Wanda even more after he held her, because I think a part of him always wondered if he would love her as a "parasite"- and now he has proven to himself that he does.

I absolutely loved Ian and Wanda. They had this seemingly impossible love that was sustained by Ian. I was practically screaming at Wanda every time she "fell back in love" with Jared. Glad to know that she moved on though! Ian loved her, WANDA, for herself, no matter what body she was in. That was just incredible, to see that his love knew no bounds, that it extended to another species!

Haha, and I just HAD to put this bit in here. Did anyone let out a giggle when reading this part in the book?

"...Melanie's experiences had not gone to waste; I had learned from them. Ian was every bit as honorable as Jared, and I was not going to go through the frustration Melanie had.

So I lied, giving myself an extra year. 'I'll be eighteen.' " pg. 605


I had to go back and reread that part after the first time because I didn't get it, but I burst out laughing when I did! Naughty Wanda...

Did you seriously just stamp your foot? I thought girls only did that on TV.
