She is...

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

::glares balefully at RFC whilst slamming door closed on a closet full of pitchforks::

Oh, my girl. My girl. I think one of the reasons I've always loved her so deeply is that she isn't perfect. She has a ruthless capacity for violence and a well of passion so deep I'm not sure even she knows how far it goes, and yet somehow - somehow - she hasn't let it break her, even when it should have torn her apart. She isn't perfect, but she is good, and boy have I got a weakness for that kind of driving passion.

I wish I could say I didn't understand her here, but I do - too well for my own peace of mind. And more than anything else in the world, I wish I could hold her tight and promise her that it will all be okay in the end. Or if not 'okay' - because I don't think her world was ever 'okay' again, after this - then that she will succeed in restoring the Republic she loves.

...still gonna kill you, RFC. Any day now. Once I quit blubbering.... later this century.

(Disclaimer: No, I don't actually want to kill him. I just want to occasionally shout graphically creative insults at him when he hurts my favorite characters. Just in case anyone was thinking of calling the cops (please don't). :D )

I serve at the pleasure of President Pritchart.

In the oldest fairy tales, the hero doesn't do what's "right", but what's necessary.
Himself's folks do that, Honor, Victor and the Captain, Kevin, Tom, Eloise. And Merlin.
