I should also point out that during one meet up 1 user asked if anything would happen romantically between Volger and Barlow and Westerfeld said that Volger was, in his words a " Confirmed bachelor" if you look up that term it's Victorian slang for homosexual.

Fun fact, Volger in Dutch means 'Follower'
And Really? Volger Gay?
I don't want in the books
Varlow can happen

Conspiracy time!
Volger just wants to be a bachelor.

Why do I feel that the Count would not be a homosexual?........To use the phrase from the books, he'd think it "barking unnatural."

One must never tolerate evil. For first, evil is tolerated; then embraced, then ailed as being good, then it becomes unlawful to do what is actually good.

Imagine if Volger was a master walker pilot
He didn't spend all his time waving a sword around

Or we can just make everyone happy and say ol' Volgermeister was bisexual.  XD

Thank you Catvomitsky.  XD

And yea...on occasion I just continuously listen to the three books for long periods of time...Alan Cumming is so good at reading them and becoming, like, thirty different people it boggles the mind.  XD

My friend's doing her book report on Behemoth and how it shares themes with Romeo and Juliet. This should be interesting XD
