FEEDBACK: "Yeah, I'd like that." -Amy, Three to Tango
DISTRIBUTION: Just tell me.
SUMMARY: Mirror mirror on the wall, Isabel's the fairest of them all.

And isn't it ironic...
Don't you think
It's like rain...
On your wedding day
It's a free ride...
When you've already paid
It's the good advice...
That you just didn't take
And who would have thought...
It figures.



"It kind of seems that you've got all these guys in school interested in practially every single one of them, but you kind of tend to keep pretty platonic." -Liz, Heat Wave


I wanted her to reply something real. I didn't want a sarcastic answer. Then again, it was Isabel Evans. How could you get emotion from her? But I wanted to hear...that no guy in the school did it for her, or no guy she knew, or maybe even that she wasn't attracted to guys. That she was lesbian.

She's an alien. But I'm a human. And for my species, it's not could two female of a species take to each other? It was lethal for the survival of the species.

She's an alien. And I'm a human. And for our species, it's not could two members of different species take to each other? Hybrids only come when the parents are bred. So how can I be attracted to her on my own?

But I AM human, and she's...well, she's some advanced species of aliens. She's partially humans, too. And our species can think. I'm wondering wheyher this is a good thing or a bad thing. What if we were all homosexual?

Isabel is cruel to me. Max is sweet, so sickeningly sweet that it can, on occasion, threaten to turn my stomach. If I go for someone cruel, my heart will end up broken. It's a bad idea--all the magazines say so.

But maybe what I need is for my heart to get broken. Max has had, at a time, the power to break my heart cruelly, but never did. He was always so gentle. And I think that disgusted me. If you're going to break up wih somebody, then break up with them, dammit!

Maybe he didn't think I can handle it. But I can handle a lot more than it seems like I can.

The reason I fell for Max in the first place was because it was so strange. He's a totally different species.

I think the reason I fell for Isabel was because it was even stranger. She's not only a different species, but she's the same sex as me, and her personality juxtaposes mine.

Maybe we would have something like Michael and Maria--a love/hate relationship. The way Maria envied me for a Max, I envied her for a Michael. So maybe the one I should be attracted to is Michael. But I don't think Michael would be the same way to me. Just as Max wouldn't be the same way to Maria.

Only Isabel would be cruel to me in a relationship. And that's why I need her.
