talk to me about pippin. what does he really want? why can't he find it? etc.
He says he wants true fulfillment and to find his place in this world, and deep down he does want that, but in the show he is searching for something extraordinary, something amazing, a perfect life. He thinks he’s special and different and that this is the only way he can be happy and content. His simultaneous idealism and ego are what are holding him back. It’s not until the end of the show that he comes to realize he’s just a person and that perfect doesn’t exist; that being extraordinary isn’t worth dying for and that maybe the life he can build away from the troupe is enough.
