okay but here’s the thing: i want to watch the world burn
—and then i want someone broken and scarred to take a deep breath, look at the mess, and start building something new with all those ashes
bringing a character back from the dead is easy. it’s cheap. it’s the same old same old same old ‘true love conquers all (even death)’ and usually that’s not even the point of the story, so writers don’t go out of their way to make it interesting.
i love ‘starting again’ stories with all my heart, and the possibility of watching characters i’ve already been made to care about hit rock bottom and then claw their way back up just makes me so happy.
