It's hard to trace.
Zane died because he tried to get risky surgery to make Tally like him more.
Tally didn't like him because Dr. Cable messed with her mind.
Shay caught Tally to get the special mind-messing operation.
Tally's cure pissed Shay off enough to cut, thereby attracting Cable's attention.
The cure was given to Tally because Shay didn't take it.
Cable messed them both up.
Society messed Dr. Cable up.
The rusties messed up society.

So I blame evolution.

Sigh....all Tally's fault for not liking Zane for who he was. He couldn't help it. And, he wouldn't have gone all shaky if stupid Tally hadn't made him split the pills because she was a wuss.  :P

Shay does make everything happen, but it's Tally's fault Zane died.

I think shay had alot to do with it. If she had run away earlier, before she'd met Tally, they would never have met, and Tally would have gone on and became pretty, never  knowing who Shay was.  And because she never met Shay, and went for her pretty operation on time, who's to say she would have met Zane?   You know the saying, if you kill a butterfly in the past, it can dramatically change the future? Like if Tally never met Shay, maybe when she went to get her pretty operation on time (no Dr. Cable interupting, because no connection to Shay), she would have met someone different.

But if Tally hadn't gone to visit Peris, she would have never met Shay. So, I still say it's Tally's fault. (sorry, I'm stubborn ;D)

Yep! Stupid Tally. *shakes head in disgust* LOL!  But Peris wasn't even that good of a friend. He bailed on Tally. Not that I blame him....jk ;D

Why be kidding? at first I thought Peris was a little babyish for bailing, but then again why not bail on Tally? She deserves it, with all the people she's betrayed.
