Excellent character work on Ariel but I have to admit that I am beginning to dislike her which very much might have been your intention. She feels so wrapped up in her secret desires that she doesn't see or care how she treats the people around her. She is incredible witty, smart and of course sensual which gives her a lot of power over other people and a bit of a snubish superiority complex. It'd be intersting to see in future stories if that will eventually lead to self-reflection or possibly alot of pain for her and those around her. A fascinating character no doubt and one to watch closely for sure. Steamy and very well written Act!
