But still, pretty interesting
It's all a matter of perspective. In-game, Unova is a land of people at loggerheads; it's a land where people look at ideas and see them entirely differently. Halley's apparent ability to slip between Black and White Unovas is related to this.

But maybe thats just me. Apart from that though, I am loving Halley.
Don't worry about the swearing. I know it's annoying - it's meant to be annoying - but it won't last too long. I plan to use it as a vehicle for something that's coming up soon - something that will also cut back on her swearing.

I think I like Lauren more than I do Jared. I mean, yes Jared is cool and physically powerful and able to react in a violent way if necessary, but I can relate more to Lauren. Scared, lost, just trying to be helpful. She just makes me want to hug her and tell her everything is okay. Even though she has to run away with a psychotic cat on a country-wide holiday. Poor Lauren :([/QUOTE]

Same. I like Lauren a lot, which is probably why she's better characterised. Jared has more sympathetic strengths too, I just... haven't got around to revealing them yet.

Since the original legendary dragon of Unova split itself, perhaps it was powerful enough to create two separate worlds, one where Reshiram (and truth I think according to the games) was the creator, and one where Zekrom (and I think ideals) was the creator. It would then make sense for Lauren, who lives in the Pokemon White universe where you capture Zekrom, to be helping Halley because the ideal of helping those in need appeals to Lauren, while Jared, who lives in the Pokemon Black universe where you capture Reshiram, wants to discover the truth about Halley, even if it is just to get her away. Or, if any of those factors are reversed, then so too is the backstory. God, I love how I already am making crazy predictions.
You may be onto something there, but you have to think bigger. I like to zoom out my stories bit by bit, revealing plots behind the plots behind the plots; whatever's going on, it's probably truly colossal in scale. For example, in Guide Fabien and Blake have a scheme, and so do Barry and Felicity - but they're caught in Devon's scheme, which is in turn superseded by the Magmas' and the Aquas' schemes, which are later revealed to be mere reflections of Zero's plan - the consequences of which are then shown to be even greater than first imagined.

Oh, I have plans for N. That should be good - as should the Shadow Triad's role.
