Yeah, this can be my 7000th post. That’s okay by me.
Going to do that Pelleas post I said I might do in the near future. Maybe meta will help me unwind tonight?
Uhm..this may be an unpopular opinion but I’ve always thought that Pelleas asking Micaiah to kill him was a very cruel idea. I can appreciate that he decided to sacrifice his life for his kingdom (even though his death doesn’t change absolutely anything in the end, but he couldn’t have possibly known that) and even not telling anything to Almedha is understandable, it’s sad to think that she never got to give him a last goodbye but it’s obvious that she would’ve done anything to stop him….or she could have just told him that his sacrifice was completely useless (but again, Pelleas couldn’t have known that.)
But why asking Micaiah of all people? he knows she’s one of the few people that cares about him (Pelleas, your life is sad) and that she’s all but happy at the idea of him killing himself…he’d probably preferred to die by the hands of a person he trusts and admire but isn’t in this case very egoistical and cruel towards Micaiah? She was enduring a lot of her own already, I guess this didn’t help at all.
Also, Pelleas. Sothe is right there. He hates you. He has a knife. TADAAAN!
