I guess we'll reach the 1k posts soon and the 40k views. All that Arcann negativity really boosted the activity in this thread.

I think that we can remove "probably" from that one

Now the question is: was Arcann isolated in that 5 years after Valky could not do his "prevent any attachment" thing going?

Where he compares the PC with his brother? I missed this remark.
First he saw his father in PC, now his brother? I'm afraid that for fem-PC this is not a compliment!

His fixation on revenge and lack of outside connections probably maintained it, I don't think Vaylin was any better off on that front. So she couldn't/ wouldn't help there.

Your quote reminded me why I thought Arcann might be socially awkward ! In his letter when he talks about how you remind him of Thexan he says `You both have a gift for inspiring loyalty` I guess I took that to mean good with people (Implying he didn't consider himself to be- at least by comparison. Maybe he generally left that to Thexan when he was alive?). Along with some familiar behaviours my head decided socially akward .

Yeah, you're right about that now that I think it. Obi-Wan says that he does not want Anakin to know in order to make it more believable and keep the mission intact.

I think an actual loving relationship as in starting it, especially if you haven't yet, and considering their history can be quite difficult, rather than a one night stand. But that's just me assuming.
Arcann's past is indefinable until we get new stuff but going off of what is seen... I think he consciously chose to cut himself off from the chance a romantic partner would leave him, like Senya left Valk. I think he wold probably avoid anything that could make him a father. And after Thexan I think he was just done with the idea of needing people period until he saw Senya risking her life for them. Think about it, nobody had ever risked anything for him before in his life. Why would anyone raised like him and Vaylin willingly court possible rejection?

I don't know, during his tyrant days, I just don't see him like the kind of person that has those feelings. He wanted to please his father, he didn't seem like someone who was scared of rejection to me, I think it simply just wasn't on his mind at all. Besides, Valkorion would have probably disapproved of it, and as he cared for that, he probably wouldn't really entertain the thought of it. They couldn't even see guards without their armor to avoid them getting attached to them as read in the short story "brothers" I would find it odd if Valk didn't give them a lecture on love.

I do like that even though we all love Arcann, I think we all see him a different way, I remember in the Arcann hate thread, they said that when you all agree there is no discussion to be found, but people have different opinions around here, they just don't revolve around hating said character, so there isn't any hostility around. I think those are the nicest environments to be in.

That last bit I find interesting to be a viewpoint as Valkorion, while in our heads, pushes for love. I'm guessing it's a weakness he wished the Outlander to have.

It's kind of funny, but doesn't it depend on the option you take? If you choose to say you love someone to my memory, he says when you separate for long enough, your old love will find another?
Or something along those lines, but when you say love isn't for you, he suddenly says something else.
