"Telling Rictor he was the father, what the h*ll Rahne, seriously what the H*LL "
I don't know why everyone is giving Rahne so much grief, put yourself in her shoes. Now I'm going by wikipedia only, coz I don't have the cash for X-Factor as yet, but isn't the real baby-daddy dead? She's a teenager(?) or at least very young, carrying a mutant/asgardian hybrid. Of course she's going to look for a support net, and that's Rictor. Seem perfectly natural to me, though the lying part will not bode well for her.
" @FadeToBlackBolt: If she just went to them pregnant, X-Factor would have supported her. "Fair enough. Like I said, I haven't been reading the series, so I don't know how her relationship is with them :)
" @FadeToBlackBolt: If she just went to them pregnant, X-Factor would have supported her. "True, but you can't under-estimate the power of hormones. Like I said, I've seem completely rational, professional, highly qualified women say & do some crazy things... all because the bun in their oven has been feeding them an over-dose of hormones.
" @jordama said:Just don't let him hold the baby..." @FadeToBlackBolt: If she just went to them pregnant, X-Factor would have supported her. "Not Madrox, he hates babies. "
"She is just a homewreker now. She did this thing before, remember Elixir and Wallflower? She and Elixir had the fling and completely ruined that relationship too. I am starting to really dislike her. "
I think that what she did would still be wrong even if Rictor wasn't in a relationship. You don't go around telling men that you're having their babies when you're not. The fact that she used the baby (that wasn't even his!) to try and drive a wedge between Rictor and 'Star is despicable. It's one thing if she wasn't sure if it was his or Hrimhari's or not, but she KNOWS that it's Hrimhari's and now she's turning what was something beautiful, the coming of a new baby, one that is more than likely going to be pretty powerful, into her own personal little soap opera plot device.
"but I don't think the fact that Ric and SS are having issues impacts on the morality of what she did- partially because they could be married now for all she knows"
Wouldn't say exactly the same thing- while it's still a little ambiguous at the moment, I think it's fair to say that Shatterstar probably left Rictor. So Rictor has had two people walk out on him, sleep with other people (once again, we don't actually know Shatterstar did this, but it seems almost implicit in the character) and then return with a presumption of acceptance. Given his mental state, it seems a little harsh to paint Rictor as the sleazy one of the bunch...
"Rictor was screwing around with her behind Shatterstar's back. He didn't tell her that he'd been in a gay sexual relationship. He was involved with 'Star, when he wasn't around any more Rictor moved on to Rahne & later went back to Shatterstar after Rahne left.
Now she's done exactly the same thing...
I think the reason she did that is because she's ultimately lonely and most likely is feeling a lot of emotional distress over losing that Hhmihari guy?oO Can't remember how to spell his name^^;;. But either way, the guy is sorta been dragged to what I guess is Hell, that doesn't give a pregnant woman a lot of hope that he'll break out. I'm not saying it excuses her, I'm just saying pregnancy can leave a woman feeling a lot of mixed up and crazy emotions. She's probably feeling desperate right now
" I think telling Rictor that the baby is his was an insult to Hrimnari's memory. Especially after he sacrificed himself to save both Rahne and the baby. "She has already admitted to Rictor that he isn't the father (something he' already figured out for himself). She has gone through more traumatic experiences in the last few 'months' (of in-continuity time) then you & I and many other people will ever go through in a life time... combined! So it is perfectly understandable for her to make a silly mistake. She hasn't disrespected anyone's memory.
