I was thinking of it as an evil druid who chose to pursue lichdom without using arcane magic and the lantern is his twisted phylactery.

One of my original ideations about adapting the beast was very close to the evil druid path.

I settled on him being a mage who was punished by druids over a difference of opinions.

So like I wouldn't think they would actually be *the* bravest. Not like there some scoreboard or something for that. It's really more of a plattitude, they're toasting to them and they're going to say something nice.

They chased a rabbit into a spooky cave?

To be honest the original script doesn't have the word "Bravest" in it, it was a word I added when I was typing out the dialogue. You're right about it having no place in the sentence.

At some point I will I go back and redo the comics that I feel aren't written well enough. This will be one of those changes.

If you'd just went through some life risking shit to join the ultra exclusive club, you want people to praise you.
Then you go off and attempt to earn the praise.


But yeah, it could be written without saying bravest, either by teplacing the superlatives with descriptors/comparators or by removing it altogether and saying something like "to pur newst members? Nrave scrap and undauntable topheavy

To be honest, I called them faggots out of anger. I still stand by my stance that if they're going to hate their own child because of a complication that arises, they should not have kids.

That's what they are saying they want to do.

This is vastly different from what you said initially:
>clearly they should never have considered children to begin with.

So which is it? Are they parents who want to give up their autistic kid and you sympathize with them for that? Or are they irresponsible faggots who shouldn't have considered children at all?

But you still loved your father, right? That's what i'm getting at

I feel the same way about my uncle, who is in a terrible situation of mental illness. He's burned all of his bridges, lives in poverty, has crippling physical problems, and is basically a prisoner within his own mind.

I do my best to show support and compassion to him, and to understand his situation, but he exasperates our family and is a heavy burden on my mother and grandmother. I sometimes wish his suffering could end, one way or the other, but I will never stop loving him. That's what I feel is important.

I suppose I could be misconstruing her words for hating the child itself, and that's what's making me feel so strongly about this. However, there's very little making me think otherwise. It would have been nice if she added "I still love it" somewhere, but she didn't.

The point about the abortion is really "too little too late," it's really unfortunate they couldn't have seen these problems coming and cut it off before it came to be. But the end result is you decided to have the child. Either love it or put it up for adoption.

And my standard for a good parent is one that gives unconditional love and understanding to their child, no matter the complications. Some really terrible things have happened to many people's children, and they still showed a great deal of compassion to what many people would consider a "burden."

Yes parents can get frustrated with their children, yes they can feel resentful for how they turned out, we only have so much energy to deal with so much stress, it's part of being human. But by the end of the day there should be LOVE, and i'm not seeing that in this women's words.
#403 - JustintheWaysian (09/24/2016) [-]
I hate to take it in this direction, but I really don't think you have a place to criticize them for this until you've done what they have done, while abiding by your own standards.

I came out of a place of caring for my dying father for 5 months while at the age of 19. It was terrifying and scary for me. I do not fear death or the concept of death, for I had been around the deaths of 7 close relatives in my immediate family while I was growing up. The part that made it different from my other family, was that it was my father and it was in my house, he was not in a senior's home. I put my college on hold and couldn't make new friends (my high school friends moved out of state), and was essentially stuck in the house to care for my father.

I loved him, but I grew to resent the situation and why I had to put my life on hold. The constant self-reminders of "because he deserves it" was not enough. I watched my home turn into a house of death and watched my father turn into a "living zombie" of sorts, merely animated by his body's instinctual processes and movements, rather than by the mind that raised and loved me.

I can't hate on anyone who resents their caregiver role, because I resented mine and was not strong enough to endure it properly. I can imagine how this couple saw how their lives, once hopeful for a happy child and a bright future, turned into an omen for eternal slavery. Their home, ready to receive and hold a growing child, would just end up being the jail for them and their overgrown zombie of sorts.

Unless you have endured such a situation to your degree of expectation, I don't think you're in the right to declare how things SHOULD be for the couple, or to have an unrealistic expectation for them.

yes, I pity them too, but I pity the child more for not only being born the way it is, but also having parents that essentially do not love it.

If you do not love your child, and instead regret its existence, you are not a proper parent. you should give everything of yourself to its care, survival, and happiness, because it is YOUR FAULT that it's on this earth to begin with.

they should end the charade and just give up custody.
#390 - JustintheWaysian (09/24/2016) [-]
>having parents that essentially do not love it.

Sounds more to me that they hate the situation, rather than the child. Yes, the child is the CAUSE, but you can hate the effects and not the cause.

"I'm sick of pretending I'm happy with my life"
"We'll be poor forever."
"I'm stuck being a full time carer forever."
"We'll never be able to enjoy being parents"
"This is hell"
"I wish I didnt have to deal with this"
"There is nothing nice about this at all"

>because it is YOUR FAULT that it's on this earth to begin with

That's exactly why she said "I would have had an abortion if I knew this would happen". She has a conscience and a sense of responsibility.

>they should end the charade and just give up custody

hmmmm.
"i'd do ANYTHING to swap him for a normal kid"
"i'm sick of pretending"

Like dude, these are normal parents. Your standards of what parents should be, these parents ARE. But your standards of what parents should be, are in the context of NORMAL CHILDREN, not mentally disabled ones who cannot develop properly.

In the most technical sense, you're not wrong, but the context in which you are trying to apply your arguments is wrong.
