        That's another perfectly reasonable Ulerian quest. I don't see any
reason why she can't be opposed to ZZ in one quest and be 'working with
him' in another. Perhaps she demonstrated the impotency of hatred to him in
the first case and then undid it in the second case. When Hate and Love
run smack into each other, all sorts of messiness can result. I like this,
because it has nice echoes of Aphrodite and Ares.
