->[[Literature/HarryPotter SEVERUS]] MEETS [[RelationshipSue PERKY]]: Diametrically opposite to [A Woman With A Dark Past], this tour matches everyoneís favorite taciturn Potions Master with a woman so ebullient that tourists may fear that the two will combust when they come in contact. Perky is "short" and "unconventional". She wears robes of eye-jarring shades of pink, yellow, blue, green, or all of them together. Her hair is a "nest of curls" and her face jovial. She wants to share her general state of happiness with the world and, since Perky is woman who "likes a challenge", her most concerted efforts will be directed at the one man in Hogwarts who could be described as unhappiness personified. Severus, in his turn, will be disconcerted by her attempts to break through his "uncommunicative façade", but also unwillingly charmed by her high-spirited tomfoolery. She "brings a breath of fresh air" into his dismal life. We donít really know what Perky gets from the exchange.

->She tap-dances. She lies, puckishly. She emcees somber hamster funerals. She introduces strangers to her blankie. She figure-skates in a crushed-velvet alligator costume. She wears an epilepsy helmet just long enough to facilitate a wise and bittersweet moment and then never wears it again. She walks over to her record player and opens the lid but doesn't put a record on just to make VERY SURE you know she has one.

->Perhaps Carter felt that Reyes was coming across as a little too spaced out but the ''"I feel energies"'' angle was dropped when she became a regular. A shame, because I rather like the idea of somebody a little kooky working in the X-Files office. I donít really buy the criticism that Reyes is a forced eccentric, a character constructed out of idiosyncratic ticks and quirksÖat least until she started to imitate whale song. At that point I thought she might have gone insane.
