Outside Reading Homework Section #1 post A and B

1: Blotter (page 23)-a log in which daily activities are recorded.
2: Labret (page 33)-object that pierces the area below the lips and above the chin.

I think that the theme so far brought up in the story is friendship in that Aislinn has her troubles and Seth is there for her and even the faerie Deadgirl helped her out when she is in need of some help and comfort.

Wicked Lovely is a really good book in that it is good at elaborating themes and concepts that Aislinn has lived with and has loyally abided by for her whole life. Now things have changed in the way that she has broken and interfered with those rules of staying away from the knowledge of the faeries all around her by telling Seth, her human friend, about her situation and the faeries that she can see and hear while he and most others can not. The antagonists in Wicked Lovely are the faeries and they are invisible to everyone except an occasional few including Aislinn and they are out to get her. It seems as though they are actually good in some parts when they are involved, but the only reason they are perceived that way is because all the faeries are ordered to look after her and make sure nothing bad comes to her so that they can be sure to take over her eventually. On page 68, Donia, or Dead-girl, the faerie whose assignment is to keep a watchful and protective eye over Aislinn is following her home when a few guys took her and started harassing her so Donia, turned into her mortal form and when they told her to get lost, she had her wolf attack them. This again is only because she has orders to keep her safe. The protagonists in the story are mainly Seth and Aislinn's grandma, Seth is her best friend an she trusted him enough to tell him about how she can see the faeries and her latest interactions and stories and he is always there for her even though he knows that he is getting into trouble himself. Her grandma can also see the faeries and so have most all the women in their family, but Aislinn's mother died when she was young, and her grandma is the one who keeps her safe from the faeries too but Aislinn is too afraid to share with her her latest encounters with the faeries, because she has broken every promise and rule she has ever had with her grandmother so she is afraid that she will get punished or just limited in her freedoms. On page 25, Aislinn is just beginning to tell Seth about her knowledge of the faeries and he stays calm for her and makes her feel protected. I really like how she has her troubles this way and the views of the faeries, Seth, and her Grandma are told along with her story and i really enjoy and can follow along well with the book as Aislinn's story is being told.
