I think sometimes that people forget that the characters aren’t omniscient. Every so often it seems like comments start appearing that imply the thought process of just taking what the characters say as gospel. The characters know what they know and react according to that. So Rulette is not describing Thomas as accurately as other characters might. Nina would probably be the best character to ask about Thomas right now. Carol might be closing in. Rulette is talking about a version of Thomas she knew a decade ago. Possibly an accurate description, but even that is subject to interpretation. Each character has a different perspective on how things are happening in relation to them. It’s not malicious generally. It’s just how they interpret their world. Real people are like that too. Which is why two people sometimes describe a situation they both observed in wildly different ways.
I guess this is just a reminder to take into account where the character’s heads are as they do things.
When we went to the store today there was a tornado very briefly. Two actually. We could see it from the parking lot. The one only touched down for a minute or so and wasn’t very big. It was over farmland. Still, we made it a point to leave the area quickly, since if one appears the conditions are there to be more. As we drove out of town many people were out looking at the sky. Which made my mom laugh because the warnings always say not to do that. In the midwest we look at weather because you can see a lot of it coming.
As always, if you’d like to support my work please use the links above. I will try not to get taken out by a twister till next I post. Also probably after that as well.
