Sheba

Sheba is a fascinating character. What do you think about her??

Why do you think she wants to be so evil?

I agree, she IS a 'red-hot-goddess-of-destruction', but there's so much more to her.

She was born into the life of a demon, so that's all she knows, so she can't be blamed for all her tricks. I won't say she didn't want to be a demon either, because she enjoyed the havoc, dischord and dyne that she created. It fed her senses.

It nourished her.

Honestly, I'm ont saying this just because it's Stephenie's story, but, of all the short stories, this was the most. . . complete, and interesting.

With the one about the supergirl coming in close second.

BUt, Sheba was so very interesting to me. She was a goddess, and very powerful.

She didn't WANT to be 'saved' by Gabe, but
1) She didn't have a choice.

This is very similiar to, surprise, surprise: Edward and Bella, except in opposite roles.

This time, Gabe, the angel, (how Bella sees Edward), is in the hero role, while, in Twilight, though Edward saved Bella physically, she saved his existence, his hope, his self-image.

Gabe rescued Sheba from the hell that she loved so much. And that was it really.

Love.

Florida Anyone? Summertime! No for me, of course, but that's a different story.

I agree with vampiregrrrl110

but.........

It is one of the stories where neither one really has a choice, however, I think we like Sheba because she is beautiful, powerful , and given unbelievable situations. It is almost like Bella, except Bella doesn't have the 'I can control this' type of attitude.

And hey, if we couldn't be Bella it would be interesting to be Sheba!

I agree.. At first I was like... Wait who is Sheba? Since I read it such a long time ago. But I think Sheba is like Bella, she can't STOP loving someone even though its trouble.

Being a demon is all she's ever known. Besides it mentions a lot how she has a lot to prove for previous mishaps on her missions so I think she tries to overcompensate so her peers will think she's not a worthless demon. She wants to prove herself and I guess for demons you wreck as much havoc as you can to do so.
Don't rely on heroes.
Heroines will be the ones to save the world.

Wonderful point.

I guess you could compare it to how a cobra only knows how to be a cobra. It is all they know, if you are a cobra you eat whatever cobras eat and do whatever they do to survive.

(Cobras are a new favorite animal for me, hence the example!)

Hey, that is a good point. The part of Sheba being like Bella, can't stop loving someone. I think that Sheba is a pretty cool character. Gabe was awesome. Sheba's sister ticked me off at first and then I was like, she's pretty sweet. But Sheba was awesome because she wrecked havok and it made me laugh

Havok and laughs are always the day maker. It is almost like Bella finding another exciting way to almost die, again.

;D
