I can already guess, I don't want to... so I'm just gonna say it... this is the moment that shatters him

Despair is the veil over reason, and often it makes us choose dire courses of action. When the love you give seems to merit nothing but hatred and resentment from your own fellow humans, there's some degree of understanding as to why one might choose to give up all. You don't want to love. You don't want to care. You just want the pain to stop. You want the thinking to stop. You wish your heart didn't feel so much as it does.

And yet, Argus's choice resulted in enchanted punishment that the powers in control delighted in moreso than any human could. Ironic in a way, but no less tragic by far. And with his immortality now slowly fading away, his blood, a symbol of mortality itself, serves as a reminder of what became of him the last time it spilled from his being..

(On a side note, I have a theory about the details of the contract amendment & final resolution... but I fear it could possibly spoil things if I was public about it (at least at the time of this post). Might be better left in private discourse I suppose. Can you tell I think too much? :D)

Woah. This is deep.

Argus please don't kill yourself in front of a magic fountain. It's not a good idea.

This page is a disturbingly realistic and eloquent gutpunch. Bravo. :/

Uuuuugh. Yes, I've read that most people who attempt suicide and fail at it experience those feelings while they are dying. Too late, Argus is realizing that there is nothing romantic about what he is doing--that dying is ugly and terrifying (has he never seen someone besides Aornis die before?) and that he could have made so many other, better choices than taking his own life. Ugh, this is such a gutpunch of a page. I'm glad that he was saved, but damn is this nightmare fuel to read.
