That's something I didn't think of, actually, the realisticness of the ears to the images... (And for the record, that wasn't meant to be a criticism of the pictures...sorry if it came off that way. Opinions of art are always a personal thing. I've seen pictures that I thought were horrible, but the artists were perfectly happy with their (to my eyes) terrible art style. To each their own.

Well, changes in hairstyle and beard status are always a personal taste, so whatever floats yer boat. :)

Well, that's always true. we're basing our opinion of Cath solely on what we've seen of her on the show, so we don't have your VIP worldview of her to go by. :) Cath is the one who's got the most reason to be bitter on the show, and if you've changed her past to fit UF, well, then all bets are off, aren't they? :) She certainly seems to have a healthier relationship with Lyndsay. I don't remember what season it was, but there's one where it's Lyndsay's birthday and Cath is all angsty about why she didn't want a birthday party. It was a good episode...one of the few where I've actually seen gil having *fun*. He got Lyndsay a chemistry set. :)

Edit to add:

That said, Cath certainly has the quirkiest sense of humor of the group, and I hope she's kept that. :)
