Re: Okay...

>> It's often said. It is not often true; usually what happens is a bully picking on a disliked victim.<<

This time it did turn out to be true. He eventually asked me out, and then asked why I said no. One really has to wonder what he'd been told at the start of it, and all through the years we knew each other.

When I called Plucky Girl's response "positive," I only meant it in the sense of being the one it seemed Bully Boy wanted. In no way do I think it was a good one; more like testing positive for, as you said, the early stages of Stockholm Syndrome. Her motive for acting as if the adults were right makes sense, as does the way the relationship is set to change. I hope things wind up working out for them, whether together or separately.

0_o Yeah, that's creepy. Sometimes people get bad advice. Other times they just make shit up.

It is that. But it's personally complicated too, because of what she has been told, which leads to ...

... this mess.

Feel free to ask for more about them in any relevant prompt call. Next up is the crowdfunding Creative Jam running April 19-20 with a theme of "characterization."
