In the case of Demetri arriving in the recent chapter, I'd probably approve of killing him.

I hope very much to see Demetri slaughtered next chapter, preferably cinematically and in slow-motion.

Allirea (or more specifically, the way people behave around Allirea) can be funny, but the scene with her saying goodbye to her children was heartwrenching.

And Bella is back! I really liked seeing Bella through Elspeth's eyes, and watching Elspeth reassess that relationship.

One request: can we get a physical description of Siobhan, for those of us who haven't read the books? There are various references to her being "huge" and I'm not sure exactly how to construct that, mentally.

From Luminosity, Book 1:

Siobhan was a brunette, with a short and well-maintained haircut. She was very tall and broad, and she moved forward to greet us with an undulating smoothness that I considered trying to emulate before deciding that its impressiveness depended on her size. I wondered if she could beat Emmett in a fight and was unsure. She was barefoot, like the others, and they were all dressed in simple outdoor wear.

Awesome, thank you. I remember that scene now--it probably didn't stick in my mind across the two stories because Siobhan wasn't terribly important in Luminosity.
