I don't think there was ever anything romantic between Marco and Rachel.
Rachel was supposedly a babe, and Marco liked to joke about that, but I don't think he really meant anything by it.
He's just that kind of person who is always joking around.
He and Rachel were good friends, and I think that was just the dynamic of their friendship.
She liked to give him crap because she knew he could take it.

When Rachel picks on Marco, it reminds me of when a young boy likes a young girl but he doesn't know how to show it so he pulls her hair, pinches her, whatever. I'm pretty sure that's what was going on.

While I kind of liked Rachel and Tobias together, it felt weird. The two opposites (the gentle and the extreme) getting together might have been good in the short term, but Rachel and Marco just felt more right.

The relationship between Rachel and Tobias worked well for the war; their strengths and weaknesses played off each other pretty well. If the war never happened, I doubt anything would have happened between them.

So just shut your face and take a seat, 'cause after all, we're just talking meat. And music?

Well, it's just entertainment, folks.

<It could have been that had Rachel lived Tobias would have become a human nothlet and then in time he and Rachel would have had a falling out, as many high school romances do, and then later she could have ended up with Marco.>
<Cassie would have ended up the same way she did in the books, that guy she is with in the end was really a huge loser who was just despite to find a girl who could stand to be around him and stuff.>

It sounds like you've put a lot of thought into this. Did you make your own alternate ending for the series?

A Tobias_Marco written fan fiction about what happens after the last book?
I think I might like to read that.

I never really felt the Rachel/Tobias stuff, Marco and Rachel had so much chemistry and bounced off each other really well. Yeah, they teased each other but they respected each other a lot too. If Rachel was going to end up with a guy, I would have put money on Marco.
