Tammy: And yes, confirm it here, Lalasa and Tiane are a couple. They’re always together after a certain point, and Tiane comes completely unglued when Lalasa vanishes. She’s also waiting there for Lalasa when she and Kel come down.
Lalasa doesn’t throw herself into Tiane’s arms because she dislikes and mistrusts men. She likes and trusts softness, slowness, sweet voices, curves, and gentleness. She would never be attracted to Kel, because Kel is muscular, hard-bodied, and crisp. She adores Kel–she gives Kel credit for rescuing her life and giving her a fresh start–but she has never felt sexual about Kel and never would.
