When Elspeth destroys the bonds that Chelsea has forged she makes people realise that those feelings are false and to forget them, right? So to re-connect bonds that Chelsea has snipped would it not be possible for her to "remember the truth"?

So, if she said to Magic "I love my mother" it would be false at that moment but surely "I should love my mother" and "If not for Chelsea's tampering I would love my mother" would be true and could help re-connect the bonds, maybe?

(Do you think there are stubs of threads where Chelsea has cut, or if they wither away? With the stubs left it feels like it should be easier to re-connect them.)

I had the idea that it could be the opposite of Siobhan's power. So, rather than making plans he can break them. So if he told Siobhan what his power was she might be able to plan around it.

You should start reading the sequel right away; I think you'll be pleased with it.

Waves

Back again having finally caught up with the sequel. Everything seems to be getting pretty serious...

This was going to be a longer post but I lost track of where it was going, although it was basically:

Yay! Not what we thought! Poor Bella, not knowing. Oh wait! She did know!! Moar plz!!!

(Multiple exclamation marks, the sure sign of a diseased mind)

DARN YOU!! Having just finished reading Luminosity I have now dissolved into a snivelling pile of salt water and mucus that you would probably be loath to poke with a stick. Definitely more crying when heard about Alice than Edward but then she's infinitely more likeable that he is...was...sniff
