Oh yeah..I loved it (i love anything to do with Alcatraz) It sounds like something I think will happen. He's breaking himself so he has to try to figure out how to work the lenses. I like someones theory (I forget who's) it says breaking something that is already broken could be fixing something in a way. Or something like that.

The concept seems to make sense, but I'm also not sure that it would be able to work that way.

It's just . . backwards.

The problem with the talent breaking him is that it seems to like him alive and whole. It sure seems to go out of its way to protect him from direct aggression.

It could, however, break and twist everything he loves. It could also very well be capable of destroying the world. At least, that's what I get out of the foreshadowing in the first and second books.

Often times destructive powers eventually turn on themselves unintentionally.  It could be that the Talent begins to accidentally break him.

I agree with both of you. If the Talent doesn't break him then it's going to break every thing and everyone that he loves.

the idea of him braking himself is very likely because he is very capable of bracking living thing like that chickenin the firs book and if he is not carful then one day when he gets angry he will brake the closest thing to him, the person nearest to him inboth of the books is Bastille so that would  be interesting. :o

I actually think the closest person to him is Grandpa Smedry but since we didn't have Grandpa Smedry in the little group in the first and second I guess Bastille would be the closest person.

i am not talking about closeness as in love i was talking about everytime he really breacks somthing he is near Bastille. so it is more likely it will Bastille and not Grandpa Smedry because it seems he is always away when bad things really happen to Alcatraz :o

Because Grandpa Smedry arrives late to everything? (especially bad stuff)

Good answer.  :D That's a good example because if something like his Talent (I'm using the next word because I can't think of a better one) exploding, Grandpa Smedry would arrive late to it so the next closest person would be Bastille!!! Whoa. If any of you can understand what I just wrote I applaud you because I can't.
Just a little thing I found in the 2nd book. When Alcatraz first sees his first Curator and he puts on his Discereners Lenses he says the Curator glowed white so that Curator could have been his father. Just a little note I wanted to share.
Okay. I found this on the internet and to me it looks just how I picture Bastille to look like in the book. I just thought it looked cool so here it is. Sorry it's so big. I can't size it down so it's small.  :-\

O.o

Bastille doesn't look like Kadaj. ha ha.  At least I never saw her that way.

EDIT: OMG look at my post count!
