Oh, wow, okay, so, story time again.
Yes, this is more of The Nefertiti Two-Step, because that’s half my life right now and I don’t even care, just shut up and listen.
(under a read-more because I understand not all of you are as invested in these assholes as I am)
Mmm, lovely. <3 I definitely got a little chill of excitement at that last line. You might find the character of Satan in Milton’s Paradise Lost to be of interest. His line, “Evil, be thou my good,” has always stuck with me. He essentially makes the same choice, “If my father has cast me into Hell, denying me the chance to be good, then at least I will put all my effort into being the perfect evil.”
Oooh, that’s a really cool parallel and it fits really well with the overall arc that I’ve planned for Reg’s character.
Snippet from the new intro because appropriate:
"The officer assigned to him asked if there were any family or friends in the area they could notify and Reg thought of his father, living a half-hour’s drive to the north. Thought about how he had been almost proud when Reg joined the Navy. He told the officer no."
