    Oh...nevermind the bollocks.

    I'm just waiting for Violet to plunge the entire city into an endless winter* and then break out into song.

    *Of course if you use the term "endless" as it's demonstrated in the movie Frozen, it means about 2-2 1/2 days.

    Plus, can I say that I'm really digging Tantivy's personality now that she's getting some facetime outside of being Lacuna's minion? Sure, she's still not a "ggod person", but I love the fact that she's incredibly decisive when she needs to be, but really defensive and insecure about her intelligence. That's some nice character development for an npc whose entire personality once upon a time could be summed up in the word "psychotic".

      I was laughing at her attempt to make people feel bad for her.
      Mostly because I remember she was the one who planted the bombs... and she told Lex to murder Mira or she'd kill his mother. And thought it was funny.

      The sudden "Why doesn't anybody like me?" routine just makes me laugh.

        It's human nature. Vlad crippled a guy and couldn't really grasp why everyone else didn't see the logic in it. After all, he didn't kill Basilisk. He left him alive so he could learn the error of his terrorist ways (a decision that indirectly led to Alina's death).

        Jack would go bugnuts if somebody threatened his friends, but Jack threatened to tear out Tatjana's throat because it would get his team the win in the Sophmore Blitz. He did so because he was told the Wreck Room wouldn't allow for the lethal use of anyone's powers. Everyone (and by everyone I mean Lex and Martin) freaked out anyway, but Jack felt justified. He acted within the guidelines given after all.

        Lex has in the past been very judgemental about students (Jack and Vlad) in particular who used their powers to get their way or harm others in anger...but when Jason pissed him off, he blew the living snot out of him with a lightning bolt and felt justified doing so.

        Herta's actions seem perfectly reasonable if you take into account that everyone (well...pretty much everyone) holds themselves to a lower standard of proof when it comes to the ethics of their own actions. Besides, Herta doesn't complain too much about being disliked, she just doesn't like to be called stupid. Armande was the one who made the (very cogent from my POV) argument about being rejected by the academy students and how the former Laputa operatives were reacting just as could be expected because of said rejection.

          If you say so. *shrug*

            It's the "Treaty of Versailles" syndrome. You put the screws to someone because they've done horrible things, but by not being slightly more forgiving you push them into a corner where they feel, in order to save themselves from being oppressed, they must do even worse things.

            Not that being more forgiving toward her would likely redeem Herta. She seems to be one of those people who'll always find a way to feel victimized to justify the awful things she does.

              Damn! I didn't know Fiore had that kind of hard edge to him.

                I've always seen him as this nice, friendly person. I've also seen him as being the sort who takes charge when things get hairy. He'd be cool under pressure, and would be very by-the-book. No, "Let's torture him for what he knows" or anything--it'd be, "This is how it's done, so this is what we do."

                Chuck, meanwhile, would keep trying to get an advantage. He doesn't have much going for him offensively, so he has to get creative. Hard to con your way out of the situation if you can't talk, so... he's trying to get some attention.

                Cue Fiore, who just wants to hand the guy over and be done with it. Simply gagging him the humane way didn't work, and he doesn't want to do it the hard way... unless he has to. So, he makes a threat, and feels super bad about it.

                I like Fiore. Were I a PC, he's what I would probably play... if not Tantivy.

                    Is it wrong of me to be wondering why Kirstie isn't a hostage yet?

                        Nice to see Lex is back to normal. That business with the joke had me worried he might become likeable.

                          Oh good. I was worried you thought he was tella-who-ha and you were going to dump him in the river with the last guy ;~)

                            Yeahhh, Kas is totally in the dark about what's really happening. He's just flying around clueless.

                                I don't think anyone knows more than half of what's going on. And that includes quite a few of the bad guys
