  • Justin Rhiannon Character Analysis

    there was an instant connection between the two of them. However, A showed that he could be very unreliable in the way that he would make promises he couldn’t keep. Providing that, A promised to Rihannon that he would come back to meet her at a cabin they had spent time at, but never returned; leaving her there waiting for a full day! “”I am going to come back tomorrow, I promise,’” A said. Obviously, A made promises he knew he couldn’t keep, demonstrating he is untrustworthy. Rhiannon did not react well to this situation, and it ended up being one of the downfalls of their relationship - that and the fact that he changed bodies every day! Character 2: “Rhiannon” Pisces Rhiannon, A’s love interest of the story, stuck out to me as the astrology sign Pisces. Rhiannon was just a regular high schooler until she found out A had one day taken over her boyfriend’s body Justin. Her and A stayed in touch and began to have feelings for each other, however, she still remained with Justin. These actions showed me that Rhiannon is indecisive and will hold on to relationships because of her fear of rejection against others - classic pisces!

Justin may have not been the best boyfriend, but that is no reason to sneak around with someone else while remaining with him. In particular, on page 213, Rhiannon told A, “I love you,” yet she was still in a relationship with Justin! Not only is this showing the…

I think everyone’s seen the “It’s in the stars” statements or “What do your stars have to say?” And this has become the familiar thing- but, while yes, we do look at certain stars: it’s really all…

  • How Is Purgatorio Related To Dante's Inferno?

    Libra, that fall from night’s hand, when the days shorten…” Dante seems to use the position of Libra to mark the relative length of the day rather than as some sort of prophetic sign. Later Dante says: “The sun, who had chased Capricorn from the height of heaven with his bright arrows, was shooting out the light on every side…” Dante uses the location of Capricorn to indicate the location of the sun. Dante always seems to use the Zodiac as part of the scientific sphere rather than the prophetic.…
