So you will at least have a sense that something worthwhile came of it?

I can totally get behind that sentiment! Frozen Empire looks great and as an old fart, I am absolutely loving all the nostalgia in seeing the old gang still at it and better than ever.

Tim, that rant was absolutely perfect and hilarious. Laughing my ass off over here. ๐Ÿ˜€

Honestly, if the stories develops and at the end he accidently trips over something stupid and falls unto something sharp, accidentally killing himself, respawns and proves his ability still works… it would be such a good “Ethan”-thing to happen ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

I feel like it’ll be a bigger moment where he gives his life to save someone. However, I absolutely agree that the most Ethan thing to do is exactly what you said.

Someone like Lilah, maybe?

Ok, how about he’s about to give his life to save someone, trips and dies in a dumb way, and then respawns where he can save them? ๐Ÿ˜›

Could do both……Kill him while he sleepwalks so he doesn’t realize it and then do the whole dramatic death scene while saving an innocent

Why not end his suffering already? Clearly living in constant fear of death is a torture. Someone should offer that. “How about we kill you?”

Yeah because clearly the way to end a fear of something is to just kill them.

No, but it is as reminder as to why he would not want that. Like flipping a coin on a decision sometimes you realise they options are not equal.

I always tell my sister to flip a coin, if she sees the result and considers flipping the coin again she has her answer that she should go with the other one.

Well, it does end the fear as it ends the human having the fear, so at least in that respect, it is effective.

It’s definitely not the logical thing to do but technically it would work, hard to be afraid of something when you’re no longer alive.

Eh, a bunch of us live this way already.

And some of u s live in the fear of chronic, unceasing pain moreso that any death.

Life didn’t guarantee us an easy path or a long one.

Yes because they taught us relligion at young age which messed us up. Before that we never cared what happens after death. Whatever happens, happens. They they put all those heaven/hell/reincarnation stuff in our heads so that we obey the system. Even though now most people don’t believe this stuff, there’s still some fear at the back of your head “what if?”.
That’s why we just wait. Becase it’s legal to just wait for death to happen.

Nothing like the threat of death to clarify one’s priorities:

  1. Friendship
  2. Video games
  3. Family
  4. Legacy

Unless the person in charge is the joker of the group and it becomes the slideshow at the funeral.

This could weirdly be a good thing for him given the situation at the moment. He got himself with a knife, there’s plenty of blood and he still didn’t die. With this as perspective, maybe other day to day things won’t seem so dangerous and deadly to him.

Ooooorrrrr… he’ll play on this horribly and find a way to accelerate his Ethan-ness.

Lucas’ expression during this whole fiasco is priceless.

I love Lucas’ Reaction here. I could never stay so calm when someone is hurt – and damn, his utter calm is exactly what Ethan needs.

Kind of the way you need to behave around animals or kids – if they are a bit afraid, you want to be slow, quiet, and not further amp up the situation. It’s tough if your kid has been in an accident or the like, but an unsettled adult present won’t be helping. Lucas always struck me as the most likely to be a good dad (in the future). I’m not sure Ethan is world-wise enough to manage it safely (the right partner might help) and Scott is just too hurt from his own traumas to not pass them on… Read more »

Well good. He bled out the blargh in his system all in one go. We Can Hope so at least….

I know this is intended to be over the top, but as someone who sliced my hand just like that last summer, thatโ€™s not just a Bandaid cut. Thatโ€™s a butterfly stitches and a tetanus shot cut. *shudders*

Very funny regardless!

Most things that “need stitches” don’t actually need stitches.

You only need a tetanus shot if the blade was really dirty. Tetanus doesn’t come from rust… it mostly comes from stuff like manure. Plain old dirt has a small chance of harboring it, too, which is why doctors often give the shot over an abundance of caution.

I’ve also had knife cuts that I’m fairly certain a doctor would have stitched… but I just covered with neosporin and bandaids (and occasionally a peroxide or epsom salt soak) until they got better.

Please tell us what kind of fanfiction Ethan is writing. I don’t need too many details just the fandom and some genre defining tags. XD

I don’t think one bandage would be enough to treat something like that. You’d need to wrap that around a few times with gauze underneath.

You can’t really tell how bad it is until you wash the blood off. Hand injuries tend to gush even from rather small cuts.

Lol, this reminds me of my son’s when they were 6 and 8, my 8 y/o burst into the house and announced, in a panic, that his brother was “dead.” So we rushed out to find him sitting up crying, bleeding from a small cut on his head. They were sledding in the snow and he had ran into a tree. We took him to the hospital, he got a butterfly bandage and sent home. The eldest always was a “drama-queen.”

Age 6 I think, I was playing Cops & Robbers with the next door neighbor’s twin boys in their backyard and before I could get even consent to playing, they had me in imaginary cuffs and shoved me forward. I fell and split my chin open, the blood got down to my belly-button before I was treated; I distinctly recall they moved out within a week.

All things considered, I think Ethan remained very calm here.

I figured he was worried more about how Ethan would react than to the cut itself.
