    Summary

    "See, the thing about Theo is that he’s nice. Genuinely nice, the kind of guy who doesn’t need a calendar to remember people’s birthdays or think twice to lend a hand; the kind of guy who sends all his neighbors baskets of fresh produce when the harvest starts just because, who always has a sympathetic ear and is willing to name any flower or insect Jas or Vincent throw at him, no matter how long his day has been. Not because he wants anything in return, or Yoba forbid, expects it, but because it’s in his nature to do it and he enjoys being a good neighbor. Quite frankly, it fucks with Shane’s head."

    Or, Shane longs for the days when he wasn't in love with his boss.

    Summary

    Providing someone with only raw potatoes as a food source all day, everyday, will eventually kill them.

    Malnutrition isn’t something to be taken lightly. This isn’t a matter of starvation, but something much worse, insidious, and subtle.

    Dream is going straight down the course, and Sam is seeing the effects of it. Slowly, but surely.

    There’s no doubt that Dream deserves to be punished, but Sam’s just the prison's warden. Who is he to determine what’s right and what’s wrong?

    (Is it justice, truly? Does Sam possess the prerogative to choose what is and what isn’t?)

    Summary

    Tommy’s fins twitch at the mention of Dream’s ancestors. Dream talks about them a lot, how they made their fortune hunting down mer pods, how they were cruel and greedy. Nothing like Dream is. They’ve both overcome their roots he says.

    Tommy is nothing like the wild mer out in the ocean, who spend their lives scraping by just to survive, who kicked him out of the pod when he was a baby because he was too small. He’s also better than the pit mer, who can’t overcome their wild instincts and know nothing but fighting.

    He’s different from them, he’s better than them. He’s Dream’s.
    ////
    OR: Change is like the tide, when it comes, you can only sink or swim. You would think that a mer would be better at keeping afloat.
