EB: so... what about jack? AG: What a8out him? EB: are you still planning on killing him? AG: Hmmmmmmmm. EB: that would be a constructive way to use your killer troll instincts, even by human standards. EB: it is much better than killing friends. AG: Yeah, you're right. AG: And to tell you the truth, part of the reason I wanted to kill him was to protect them. It's not just a8out glory you know. AG: 8ecause if I don't do it, then who will? EB: well, we have a plan to defeat him too, so there's that. AG: Yes, I know a8out your plan. AG: I guess two plans are 8etter than one, right? EB: yeah. EB: so... EB: will you go fight him then? AG: Man, I don't know anymore. AG: It's one reason I'm freaking out a8out this. A8out feeling 8ad a8out a simple, perfectly justifia8le killing. AG: If I can't handle that, doesn't it mean I'm not as strong as I thought? What hope do I have against Jack if that's the case? EB: for whatever it's worth coming from a human, feeling remorse doesn't make you weak! EB: i bet you are still really strong. EB: but then, i'm not sure if i actually want to encourage you to go off fighting him... EB: because as strong as you probably are, it sounds like he is REALLY strong. EB: and even though you killed tons of people, i think i would still be pretty sad if you died. AG: Aw. ::::) EB: so maybe you should just let us handle it? at least we won't fight him directly. AG: I don't know. Even though I'm conflicted, it still feels like something I have to do. AG: I admit, I'm pretty scared thinking a8out it. AG: Not of him necessarily, 8ut of the fact that I apparently don't know myself as well as I 8elieved. AG: What if I'm not as lucky as I thought? AG: What if I do not in fact have ALLLLLLLL of the luck? EB: well, maybe you don't? EB: all of the luck sounds like an awful lot of luck to have. AG: Exactly! AG: 8ut then, if there is no chance of catching a 8ad 8r8k, then taking a risk doesn't even qualify as 8r8very, does it? AG: It isn't even a risk, 8y definition!!!!!!!! AG: So if this is going to mean anything, I guess I just have to find the strength from somewhere to go through with it. AG: More than just the fakey strength that comes from turning a 8lind eye to all your flaws. You know what I mean? EB: heh. AG: Hmm........ EB: what?
