Sorry for the late update dear readers. It's been a long week, and the convention we attended was quite lovely but rather exhausting. Anyway, on with the motley!
Yay! An update!!
Oh dear, the politics are getting complicated... I hope the commander can find a respectful way to help the poor broken soul. A death penalty with no trial is certainly an unsavory form of justice coming from such a pure seeming culture! :c
Like most cultural traditions outsiders find distasteful, there is a reason. The trick is finding out if the reason is flawed before passing judgement...
And the trick for Arik is not getting his head bit off :D
Aaand here's the inevitable conflict, because of course she's not going to just condone vigilante justice, and of course he's going to agree with the Bothare on this one.
Haha are we getting trite? Whoops.
Nah, it's not trite. It's in-character for them, and the conflict here makes perfect sense. My commenting style is just a bit dry sometimes.
:) well, Arik's unconventional new attitudes were bound to rub his old colleagues the wrong way eventually. And vice versa, for that matter!
