    Of course, Hopey's journey is guided in part by her past, and more specifically, by her relationship with Maggie. Maggie is a permanent fixture of Love and Rockets, and she's clearly been established the perfect woman. She's kind, she's happy, she's intelligent and she's sexy. Maggie has a profound effect on the lives of all those she touches, it would seem. While her influence is apparent in Hopey's life, Hernandez offers a more pronounced take on the phenomenon when she shifts hears later in the book to focus on Ray and Vivian. Ray's greatest regret is letting Maggie go, while Vivian so wants to be Maggie (and be with her) that she's transformed that into jealousy, resentment and self-loathing. Vivian is the anti-Maggie.
