Yay Wynston! You save the galaxy ?3? times you can work through feelings I know you can.
Feelings make total sense! You pick out or induce them as necessary or fun, enjoy them in small intense doses, then get the hell out of Dodge because oh hi there are very interesting things to do elsewhere. At any time, the mildest difficulty is cause to find an alternate solution to the problem at hand then skip right to getting out of Dodge.
Ruth's the one being unreasonable here, being all herself and stuff. And inducing mush in a very careless inconsiderate way. That's just not playing fair.
I never wrote up Wynston's first three galaxy-saving ventures. In fact, I had no idea they'd even happened until while I was writing RMC's final scene. Author favorite? Who? Huh?
