Would you really trust the vampires to tell her the truth on this?  Stefan might but...

Perhaps Stefan protected Mercy by not saying anything- perhaps it was like ignorance is bliss especially since he didnt tell the Seethe that she was a Walker.
Perhaps in Bone Crossed he will tell her more about her abilities- Patty did mention that Mercy will discover a new ability although that will be more of a side step than something new or powerful.

Maybe but I doubt that. I think they will have their hands full with damage control in Bone Crossed. After all Marsilia found out that Mercy killed Andre and that Stefan had a hand in hushing it up :-\

In addition to 1) possible walker longevity and 2) fairy healing drink (we already saw lycanthropy treat age as a disease) there's also 3) the blood sharing with Stefan in Blood Bound.

Hmmm. It would be interesting to see how or if the fairy brew affects her long term. I'm more inclined to think not, besides strengthening her natural aversion to loss of control anyway :D.

hmmm, do we know how long stefan is in the usa? cause walkers only exist there, I think... right?

Anyway, I think it would be interesting to see if the fairy brew 'left' a surprise

I've been brooding over that blood sharing with Stefan. I don't quite trust his reassurance about no mind control, that still leaves other side effects possible that might crop up in Bone Crossed. And I wonder just exactly what his "loving words" in her ear were. I want to know!

Oh I forgot about that Stefan's specialty was calling a person. But I doubt that he would use it against Mercy and perhaps her immunity will help her although I think her will power is just as strong. But I dont think Stefan's power has the same allure or affect that Adam has which sometimes affects  Mercy  subconsciously.

ahh... but isn't that because subconsciously Mercy wants to follow him? Maybe now that she isn't fighting her feels for him, she'll be better able to resist the effects he has on her.

what about the chance of Mercy being changed?? I mean, in the insides they are all the same and she being a coyote and all, she might have an even better chance of survival...Bran offers to all in aspen creek the chance right? one month before thanksgiving.... as a last resource she could take the risk of the change so she wouldn't die of age and be with Adam...that would be so cool! lol...

Patty's said that it's unlikely.  Mercy may not be human enough for the change to take on her.

but remember magic is finickey around her the change could be changed giving her the abilities of a wolf yet she keeps her coyote form as well as not have to change with the moon  so she can still have children and she would gain the reaction to silver possibly

There is no place like /~

Some of the fae have been having odd reactions to Mercy when they meet her.  They seem a bit surprised by something they see.  Mercy tells us she's a walker, but it seems to be second-hand knowledge, and no one else she knows seems to have ever actually met another walker before.  I'm going to just toss this out there, but it's possible that Mercy is not even really a walker.  Added with her father's mysterious origins, it seems possible that Mercy's father is actually the Coyote, making Mercy more like a half-fae or half-god, with extra juicy longevity.

Lol!  Funny, and interesting.  Might take it to the "Bone Crossed Spoilers" area from this point, though.
