:P I think Newkirk was just a filler character. He's beastie, but i don't think he serves a real purpose in the end.

ANNDDD.... Is Volger already Barlow's husband?? AND... Is Barlow a dude???

Why not? It adds a fun plot twist, plus it often appeals to gay/bi people to have homosexuals in a book. It's kind of like a different type of marketing. :D
The only downside is when homophobics decide that since a book has gay people in it, they can't read the book anymore. I HATE that. It's a shame that that happens.

*shrugs* people can have their opinions. I just don't think it's that big a deal. And the other stupid thing is when authors go into writing a story thinking "There MUST be a homosexual person in this story"

He put Lilit in there for a few reasons, I'm guessing:
1. So he can have his little - She likes Alek, no WAIT! twist.
2. Because there are homosexuals in real life, people.
3. Lilit's kind of a rebel character, and it fits her.
4. I think he was poking fun at the sterotypical love triangle by switching it up a little.
