Reggie isn’t the kind of person who thinks about emotion and dwells on it. They sneak up on him as he experiences them, or people point them out to him. I’m sure that’s part of why he has trouble connecting with others, in addition to his baseline arrogance and generally annoyed personality. He’s a ball of frustration wandering around the world looking for something that will help him stop feeling like he’s being impeded all the time. Getting to feel that for even a little bit is quite pleasant. What makes me feel that you ask? Getting many new patrons on patreon, or whatever else I have linked above, or on the sidebar, or whatever. It’s a tangible expression of my value as a person that isn’t nebulous in the way it is when someone says “All human life is important”.
