Reviews for Five people who strongly influenced Rush
DragonRose4 chapter 1 . 3/25/2012
Ah Rush, brilliant, hard-headed, manipulative, lonely Rush. I truly love this character, every little which way you turn him reveals a new facet of his personality and his presence fills the freaking room.

Added bonus... played wonderfully by Robert Carlyle.

Such a definitive treatise on Nicholas Rush. What makes him tick, how he thinks, his loathing and disgust with others not of his same ilk, and yet, he reveals empathy for others with a soft kindness, he thought beaten out of him by hard knocks of his life. Gloria segment was so romantic and sweet. His first introduction to praise and encouragement from Sahir, and he feasts upon it as if famished. Hawking's segment opened his eyes to his particular talent for incoherent methods of work. The nonconformist sees the light.

Chloe was a bonding through shared adversity to his envy at her newfound ability. Too right, a love and hate relationship. Very similar to his envy of Eli. And Young, it's like Rush almost wishes he had some of the Colonel's clarity, his single-minded purpose, and loyalty. Your description of the ying-yang aspect of their relationship is so true, they are immeasurable linked to each other's opposite characteristics. To admire and hate at the same time.

Brilliant description of Rush.
