“I guess we’re both suckers.”
there are certain fictional works and characters where if you insult or criticize them in front of me i am mentally and emotionally incapable of taking it anything but personally
Oh, you don’t have to tell me what he thinks ok? I’m a huge disappointment to him. I see it on his face every day. He acts as if he doesn’t even want me around…
All of his spiel about freedom, which he brings up often, and how cripply it is for people, I enjoyed enormously writing. Not just because it sounds like funny elizabethan type talk, but because I really believe that he believes it. It makes perfect sense on some level to say that humanity is not doing a very good job at taking care of themselves and what they’d really like is for Daddy to make it better. And for him to espouse that so articulately and not understand that only a person who is deeply damaged would ever want to be the person to care of everybody is what, I think, makes his character so interesting.
