Dancing Lights by Babak A. Tafreshi
idk why but the idea of the batter using the add ons as halos always kind reminded me of that one episode of invader zim when zim swallows a hella amount of other kids organs to appear more human because why the heckie is the batter so concerned about his holiness that he insists on using three halos
But what if he just swallowed the Elsens’ organs anyway:I am so sorry off off (game) quick doodle more like the world's crappiest doodle damn Batter (OFF) Dedan
The OFF Guardians
-SPOILERS FOR OFF-
I just realized this and I have no idea how I never thought of it before.
You all probably know about the three modes of persuasion, Pathos, Logos and Ethos, representing Emotion, Logic, and Authority respectively. Now think about this… what about the three guardians of OFF, Dedan, Japhet, and Enoch?
Dedan is first, very emotional and even at times capricious. He cares only about himself. And even when speaking of the queen, it only seems like he cares about what will happen to him rather of what will become of the queen if the Batter
Japhet is the most logical. He wants (for the most part) what is right for the citizens of Bismark (Zone 2). He cares not what happens to himself, Valerie, or any major characters, only the Elsens, despite the fact that what is best for their safety is not really the best thing to do.
Enoch is the leader of production in Zone 3. He is the most authoritative. He is also the most persuasive, speaking to the Elsens directly, and not in the mean manor of Dedan, but persuasively, almost politician-like. He persuades the Elsens to do his bidding, outright lying to them as they comply, despite them walking straight into their deaths at the hands of the specters to be turned into sugar.
And the Queen and the Judge? They use all forms, speaking of how the Batter is wrong, how what he’s done is morally corrupt. Of how what he’s about to do is futile.
And Hugo is where this all breaks down. The Batter and the Puppeteer now disregard the heeds of the guardians, who are attempting to guide him to the right path. But instead, as is akin to what happens in most greek literature, the Tragic Hero ignores the warnings of those wiser and plunges to his tragic fate. Either ending you pick, there is no success for the batter.off good post although I would argue that all three of the guardians are tragic heroes in their own right
