Ug, see MINIS do? NO thanks, too traumatic. See done TO 1st2nd? Hhmh, now THAT is a long list....
Let's see. What is the worst thing I can picture Minis doing to Second Amitzas Mahid? What will make old Ice Eyes quake in his ridiculous black boots, make him widdle himself with dread and wish for a death that just won't come?What do I want Minis to do?Simple.Smile.
I'd like to see some of his dark side come out. I realize you made the character as consistently questioning himself and his morality but since the slave thing in the bathhouse Minis has done nothing even morally gray. Everyone has a darkside, even the most innocent heroes. If there was a time for it to come out it's facing 2nd Amitzas.
I think that if they just sat down and had a real, bare-it-all, heart to heart conversation, and Minis was understanding and patient and forgiving enough, Second Amitzas would come around and see the error of his ways, and everything could be resolved.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHOh my. I needed that laugh. Thank you!
What laugh? What are you talking about?
Hhmmm, I'm of two minds here, part of me agrees with Cat in that I'm not sure I want to see Minis doing anything but maybe watching and offering suggestions... but on the other hand, he knows or has some ideas about what 2A did to Chevenga whom he adores, he knows and even heard some of what 2A did to Inensa whom he's found out is his mother and he feels duty and I think some sympathy towards her. He's also seen with his own eyes what that kill-crazy rabid weasel likes to do in the name of duty and effenciency (and we know he just plain likes it) I'd kinda like Minis to use some of the lessons 2A forced on him on him.my desire to see 2nd Amitzas pay is tempered by my wish not to see Minis traumatized anymore. But in a weird and twisted way I sort of think it might be good for him in a way, an utter and unequivocal slaying of the demon and a thorough proving that he has no power at all.For actual suggestions... I'd say first thing after putting him that evil Mahid restraint is a nice big dose of Obedience...Ooohh heck, no Karen's right, 2A just needs someone to carefully explain to him that he's been actually hurting people that he would realize he's been making terrible mistakes and change his ways.
Psychological torture, with a minimum of blood?
hmmm... still thinking!
THANK YOU, Blue Coyote. I'm glad someone takes my suggestion seriously and is agreeing with me. In a civilized manner.
Obedience to the death... and that is being kind. And Yes I know older Mahid have build up a tolerance... say give him 5 beads worth at a time to not simply burst his heart... and the fresh dose given precisely when the last wears off so he has a moment or two pain free before the next 5 hours.
I don't see where Blue Coyote agreed with you. Your suggestion is unrealistic bordering on delusional. Like Vryka, I assumed you were joking. You need a lot more experience with how people interact with each other if you truly believe that 2nd Amitizas and Minis can just TALK about it and 2nd Amitizas would come around. That is the most civilized way I can explain it to you Kate.
Wow. Taking it all in.
I need to remind people that some people do dead-pan humour really well. Just a thought.
I don't want Minis damaging himself. Some painful run-ins with reality should be enough to make him wish he had killed himself... Then he should be thrown to some nasty but just end that is soul murder for the perpetrator, not the victim.
haven't read the next two scenes yet so don't know if you have already moved on. I really don't want to see Minis do anything to 2nd because I think it would be bad for him. It would make him feel like he has too much of his father in him and he already feels that way. At most I think helping scrape him, using what he knows to help shape the questions.
I'm still considering! Thanks for the input, Oakwind.
