I'ma Be A Whiner for Zane
« on: November 07, 2013, 12:21:47 AM »

I am here to say what I know so many other people believe...

Zane SHOULDN'T HAVE DIED!

Hehe...end of my rant!

(Okay, just a little more. Who cares about David? Zane and Tally 4ever!)

I agree! Zane and Tally are totally meant. David is just there, no one cares about him.

I care...but I still like Zane and Tally better. But Zane dying was pretty much inevitable. It was sad, but it had to happen.

Zane said he loved Tally. If you look carefully, I don't think David ever did.

No, the words "I love you" were only said twice in the series - Zane to Tally, and Tally to David, but she was only conveying a message from his mom.

I know. But I don't think David ever said he loved her, even with different wording than "I love you".

Hmm...true. I never realized that until now.

Besides, at the end of Extras, David seemed to be the rebound guy. That sucks!

I don't think Tally loves David in the same way as Zane, though.

Oh, of course not! With Zane, everything was 'bubbly'. With David, everything is 'just there'.

He's not dead.
His death was too OBVIOUS...no. What Tally was looking at in that bed was an Artemis Fowl: The Opal Deception style flash-clone.
Looked like Zane, same DNA as Zane...but no mental cognition. A meat sack more or less, created to tip Tally over the edge and for its master to steal Zane away for...something.

David, ugh I will never understand why people prefer him to Zane. His hygiene in the book sounded morbidly horrid.

HAHAHA! I never thought about that. Maybe people like him because he sounds more real, like he can handle himself more than Zane.
However, I feel that Zane looked at the world as real as he could from where he lived and how he was raised. He was definitely different than every other pretty. He used his brain.

It's like the choice between dating the sporty guy and the nerd. Sure the guy who's into sports is probably really hot and can move heavy furniture, but really, where is the talent of moving heavy furniture going to get you in this day in age?  Better to go for the nerd who will grow up to be like Steve Woz and build something that will keep the money coming for a long time.

At least that's how I see Zane and David.
