Please read Smile

I think there are SO many mistakes in there, it´s about completely useless.
But that could just be me.. being me :/

Am I wrong?

Nope, I kind of agree with you, it was interesting. Having read the first two chapters of HoO, I'm still convinced Kaleb is the Ghost Very Happy

In the early part, it makes it seem as Pure Psy is a split within the Arrows, which is not true. Arrows have joined Pure Psy, but it is not lead by Arrows and is not an off shot. Also, there is a major misresprentation of the X designation. It is clearly explained in Kiss of Snow what the X-Psy are, so that is a MAJOR mistake. I am also not sure it is fair to compare Pure Psy to Zaid's activities. At least the X mistake is pointed out heavily in the comments.

Jane mentions in the comments that she thought X was just a designation given to anyone one so powerful or mysterious they cannot be properly measured. This leads her to conclude that all the Arrows and Kaleb, etc are Xs. This is never implied and even before X-Psy was explained in the series, I always got the impression that it was a specific designation, not some catchall. I am really confused how she could miss such a large detail. If you failed to read Kiss of Snow, I could see how someone could maybe stretch X-Psy to be such a thing, but certainly not after KoS.

yep. and George is clearly described as a co-worker, not a subject.
Zaid was never described as having an "unforseen" ability in mental combat, that only came to light after the twins had died, was he?
it was said, theie deaths were covered up by diciples of Mercury, but not by Zaid.
and that could be crucial later on

And she completely missed on Aden and Vasic saving Dorian

err while I appreciate all the time she took to compile all those, I just can't agree with some of her points.^^

Sione...was this even the same Sione that Faith mentioned? I can't recall anything that connects the two except the name.

Vasquez isn't a former Arrow, from what I can remember, he was so unstable he failed the most 'basic' evaluation tests for Arrows.

I skimmed the whole thing, and I don't have any plans to nitpick anymore. lol

OK, it´s not just me.

Can we just agree, that there is nothing in that post, that would give any of us any new insight?

I just read the comments and was a bit weirded out, because aynthing she wrote there was so freaking obvious.
But then, to the casual, usual reader, it probably isn´t.
Just, we´re not casual readers.
