    Anger, fear and despair. The trinity.

    Horsefeathers – It’s not your fault, Rufus, as usual it’s the fault of the Big Bad who’s talking to you. Stuff it Flimm – this is NOT the way proper stories end…

    Flimm neglects to give 1 detail, that he, Flimm, is the one responsible for all this, not Rufus.

    He’s the Accuser. This is the case for the prosecution. They never go easy on the good guys.

    “Flimm neglects to give 1 detail, that he, Flimm, is the one responsible for all this”

    He’s not responsibly for Twila growing up and acting all beachy. That’s the root cause of Rufus’ sense of frustration at things not staying the same way forever.

    If that is Rufus’ real problem. Flimm misread Biff, and may be misreading Rufus.

    Rufus didn’t “sacrifice” them. The decision was theirs to make. Flimm, master of the twisted word.

    Rufe’s eyes are not red-and-green; just horrified… I’m taking that as a hopeful sign. Another hallmark of an excellent story: things right now look like they could not possibly get any worse for our main character – I’m totally invested; gonna camp out right here and wait for more…

    …nailed it, you did. Rufus is not the cause of all this grief, bloodshed and mayhem. Flimm is.

    That isn’t Rufus’s prime motive. I don’t have any sibs, but I think that most kids would do nearly anything to save the life (and the Memory of) that little sib.
    The reason that “forget You” is so powerful is kids are terrified of being totally forgotten, all alone, as if they never even existed, which is exactly what is going on.
    Rufus is kind, honest, and though a bit naive, he has a huge amount of love in him.
    I hope Biff, or someone of something inside him will tell him as much off that as a child can understand.

    Flimm may be twisting words, but I think it’s more likely that he simply cannot conceive of anyone sacrificing themselves for another. During his last meeting with Slynderfell, Flimm made it clear that he considers the idea to be fantastic. Now, sacrificing others for one’s own gain — that he understands very well. And it can’t be denied that that is a very unfortunate part of the human condition. But there is also the other side, which Flimm simply cannot perceive, and so dismisses as “imaginary.”

    Right! I hope Rufe can understand that, but kids think they are responsible for parent’s divorce and really sensitive ones believe they are the cause of almost all bad stuff.
    When I was 9 I called a friend a fool, I have suffered guilt over that for years. Now I understand this was no major thing, she probably forgot it the next day.
    Better if the world were filled with those who feel guilt and shame that the ones who have NO Shame, no sense of love, or being responsible or integrity and no sense of guilt like those who have ruined our world.
