AFJ. Mandy - I've never heard Bryn's full story of how he came to be with the wild unicorns - maybe that would be a good one for some fan ficiton some time? I've not heard tell that any of the animals in Faerie are immortal - but you never know.I don't think Gabriel was capable of loving anyone at all once he got corrupted and ruined by the Dark Arts - he just used people for his own ends. I'm pretty sure Tania didn't really love him at all - a person can fool themselves into thinking they're in love with someone charismatic and attractive and powerful - and I think she just got swept along by him. But wouldn't it be creepy if she had loved him a bit and if that love was still inside her, sleeping but able to be woken up?

AFJ. Aimee - I ususally get up about 7:30 to 8:00 am, feed the cat, open the cotumper and deal with fanmail for about half an hour to an hour. Then I will re-read the last 20 or so pages of the previous day's writing, and then get going on new stuff. I usually work at the cotumper for about 4 hours or so. Then in the afternoon, I will be thinking about what I'm going to write the next morning. I need to write about 2000 words a day, but if I try to write more, it often comes out really bad - and that means I have to rewrite it the next day. I do this six days a week.

AFJ. Aimee - do you mean Edric and the Dark Arts? Well, the jury is still out on what happens there!Daniela - I don't know what Drake might have done if he was good - he might have loved Tania if she hadn't vaehisnd, and for sure his father would have liked the idea of him marrying into the Royal Family. I don't very often base characters on real people - but I will use characteristics of real people in the way they behave.

AFJ. Oh, way to go with the tricky qouetisns, there, Daniela! Why does love never die in Faerie? I guess I based it on the concept that swans mate for life (and some other animals, too). It's really the idea that true love is such a huge thing that it burns away inside forever. It can occasionally be a bit like that in the Mortal World (like, I'm still crazy in love with my wife Claudia after 20 years!!!) and I thought it should be even stronger in Faerie.
