And that meant, unfortunately, that putting all my coin on the madwoman trying to fool living gods wasn’t an option.
if Akua wasn’t just so prone to this one specific fallacy in thinking Catherine would have been perfectly comfortable just relying on her, and considers it unfortunate that it just wouldn’t work
if anyone ever treats u bad just do what my great grandma would, and has done, in that situation:
punch them directly in the throat
you might be picturing some sassy young lady in the 50s doing this but it happened last year
on an unrelated-to-the-latest-chapter note, the section of the PGTE fanbase that thinks Black practices what he preaches and is not the most colossal dumbass in the history of dumbasses is
a bit ago my reaction to a new chapter was “what the FUCK just happened”
I would like to make it abundantly clear that this is not that time
this time, I know EXACTLY what happened, AND IT’S THE BEST THING THAT COULD POSSIBLY HAVE
what I also and especially like is that Akua’s help MATTERED
it MATTERS that Akua could win, that Akua WAS winning. That Catherine chose to fold in a winning game, not a losing one. That this was not a gesture of desperation.
Akua gave Catherine grounds to stand on and weight to her sacrifice, and this MATTERS
she really did help
i JUST NOW realized that the title of the chapter refers not only to the epigraph, but more importantly to Catherine’s motto
I’m a dumbass
