Voicing Opinions

Micheal has come back to Hope. I've mixed feelings on the matter. Now, I didn't see him break, and I didn't see him go, and I didn't have to watch people defend themselves. Generally speaking, he seemed to be a nice enough guy.

In regards to Smash Bros? Rematches will have to be had.

However, Tia saw him breaking, hard. And she saw his potential to hurt people. Yes, he drugged Lis. But somehow, I think in his view of reality, he was protecting her. And maybe himself. I know that's not exactly the normal view of things. It's hard to say, I'm not in the guy's head. I don't think I'd want to be.

The thing about my chosen partner is Tia doesn't trust easy. She tries. She really does. But she just doesn't trust. It's not in her nature. People have left her, time and time again, and she doesn't want to see that happen to Elisa. Maybe that's why she tried so hard to keep contact? She didn't want to be like all the people who left and gave up on her before? All vague theories on their relationship, but from what I know of Tia, once someone leaves, it's hard for her to let them back in. And, admittedly, Micheal left. And she didn't get on with him shiningly anyway. She's not as good with people as she would seem, just a select few.

So, his return to Hope? Hasn't been exactly what she was blissfully looking forward to. I see that, but I also see all the old issues she has and we've had to work through in our own relationship.

Lissie and Tia reconciled earlier today, but Tia still worries. And she's overprotective. She wouldn't deny it. Especially of Lissie. But it's good to see them not... as awkward anyway.

Me? I'm going to keep an open mind. I can't see any other method of survival in this situation.


  1. You are an interesting one, aren't you Mr. Faust.
    Mind what things find their way into that open mind of yours


  2. I'm holding my tongue on this one. I had thought there was only one or two threats to the situation at Hope, but the more time goes by, the more evidence comes up to the contrary.

  3. To be fair, you aren't the only one who is worried.

  4. To be fair, Tia's taking your route of it Dia. And I wouldn't say I'm not worried. More like... holding opinions.

  5. I see the irony in that... I should say I'm holding back instantly siding with paranoia.

  6. It isn't paranoia to doubt a safehouse that sprang up seemingly overnight, hasn't been tested extensively, and has known killers and mentally unstable inhabitants inside.

    That said, it's better than people hiding in the shadows of abandoned warehouses, hoping that the other homeless people huddling around their trash fire won't die because they were around you while you slept.

    Nothing is going to be perfect, or truly safe, when you're running from the bad guys. The best you can do is really all you can hope for.
