Oh man, it was incredibly fun to see Aria's mother get what was coming to her, but on the other hand... her poor father. What a horrific situation to be in - you conveyed his reluctance beautifully, Padawan! I also like the language you're using in this for your dialogue. It's formal and yet there is a dangeous undertone to it. Wonderful! It really adds to the eerie atmosphere of the story! And yay! I'm a groupie!
