Description of Setting: "...he remembered a warehouse with computers and other equipment. Everything had been covered with plastic sheets" (Farmer 157). Impact Setting has on Plot: "'So I realized I was being unfair and should forgive you. After all, wolves don't know they aren't supposed to eat peasants.' Maria leaned against him in the blue shadows of the equipment room" (Farmer 158).
Impact on Plot, Characters, and Theme: This setting has a big impact on the plot because it is a quiet place where Maria can express her feelings to Matt and not have anyone hear. She can forgive him and they both express how they missed each other and how they are so glad they can talk to each other. This setting impacts the characters because it is where Maria can tell Matt that she forgives him which makes Matt feel better and that he doesn't have to worry about Maria not liking him. So Matt's feelings are changed and Maria expresses her feelings to Matt. Without this room, Maria would not be able to tell Matt that she forgives him and Matt would still be nervous about Maria not liking him. The setting of this room relates to the theme because the theme of the book is to not blame someone for not being the same as everyone else. The setting impacts the theme because this shows how Maria is forgiving Matt, and how she later finds out that someone else killed furball so she is now not blaming Matt for doing something he didn't do.
