0_o I had not realized that the flypaper-for-eyeballs effect was quite that strong.

*LAUGH* I guess somebody down there found it entertaining.

"I had not realized that the flypaper-for-eyeballs effect was quite that strong."

Errr, all your work has a pretty good dose of glue added to it but this one has more than most with your unique treatment of redemption. We're talking about glue traps for wild hogs here...!)

Re: *hugs*

I know about it in general. I've learned not to leave out stories for my_partner_doug to read right before bedtime or errand time.

The redemption theme does seem to be growing as this series continues. Minds me of something I picked up from my Waterjewel characters: "No one is unsalvageable who does not choose to be."

"No one is unsalvageable who does not choose to be."
That in of itself is a potent magnet.
A fascinating idea I once read from something Piers Antony wrote meshes well with it:
'Only those have souls who care about them.'
Sometimes in my darker moments, it's comforted me as well.

Yeah, they have caught a lot of people with that one.

I have found that an excellent rule of thumb. The ability to wonder about things is an important aspect of sentience.
