How do each of the six react to feeling guilty?

Ryan is a brooder. Little flashes of guilt are manageable, result in flippant apologies and heartfelt actions;  sitting around a hospital bed making fun of the injured, sneaking them out to go on medically ill-advised joyrides, replacing destroyed items with trashy replicas etc. The more serious incidents will inevitably result in Ryan privately reconsidering his place in the crew, the danger he poses, the balance of threat and protection that allows him to stay.

Jeremy is generally incredibly upfront - he apologises and does his best to be constantly willing and able to take on whatever job needs doing until he’s made it up to whoever was annoyed. Its one of the healthiest reactions in the crew, though he is unshakeable until his own standards have been met, regardless as to whether the victim in question holds him accountable.

Jack is less prepared to admit fault than Jeremy but when she does she is just as practical, doing her best to make amends. She might not like to accept it but once Jack takes responsibility for a mistake and feels guilty for her actions she is quick to apologise and, if the other party is accepting, quick to move on from the incident.

To the surprise of no one guilt tends to frustrate Michael. Gears him up into angry rants about stupidity and recklessness and all kinds of insults that invariably simmers down into honest apologies and a determination to do better. Whether deserved or not guilt sticks with Michael in a way anger doesn’t, makes him push himself even harder to ensure he never makes the same mistake again.

Gavin either feels no guilt at all or is disproportionately crushed by it. Neither option is terribly favourable considering the former is aggravatingly unsympathetic and the later is rarely realised until its too late. Gavin who understands exactly how people tick, how to act to win them over, to get his way. He might not use his talents to hurt his crew but Gavin knows just how to play them all the same, so when he wants a fight there’s a fight. When he wants knock down drag out, screaming and shouting and unadulterated rage, there’s a fight. When he fucks up, knows it in his bones even when no one will admit it, when no one will say he’s to blame, there’s a fight.

Geoff rarely owns up to guilt, at least in a broader, blame-game kind of sense. If its serious, if someone got badly injured or are clearly deeply hurt and it is absolutely unequivocally on Geoff’s shoulder’s he’ll take them aside and apologise in earnest. Anything else, anything he has even the slightest avenue to push off on someone else’s error he makes up for in other ways, in shiny new toys and mountains of gifts, the fun job on the next heist or a whole crew holidays to somewhere new and likely flammable.

Sorey/Mikleo Is Romantic and Canon, the Cross-Tales Edition

Originally, I was going to wait on doing this until after I’d finished my NG+ play through since I’d spread out my original play through over 6 months (so my memory of mid-game SoreMiku is a little fuzzy, while early game and end game are like, crystal clear, lol), but since I’ve been seeing a few “SoreMiku is platonic” or “they’re just bros” and similar reblogs and comments, I figure now is as good a time as any to write this: SoreMiku is a romantic and canon ship, the cross Tales of Series edition.  Also known as: “And you wonder why a lot of us think SoreMiku is romantic when (insert other couple here) gets to do this.”

Cutting for length (this monster wall of text was nearly 3 pages long in Word), spoilers everywhere for other games:

So imagine if instead of being notorious criminal overlords the FAHC were that one group of disgruntled office employees quietly sticking it to the man through petty theft, mild property damage and passive aggressive notes.

Geoff as the totally disenfranchised manager, who hates his cohort and higher ups more than any of his underlings could manage, constantly muttering insults about everyone under his breath and watching the clock tick the day away. He has somehow, very much unwillingly, managed to accidentally start collecting a little group of equally resentful coworkers to complain to and plan tiny little revolts with.  

Michael and Jeremy as workerbees under Geoff, who sit in neighbouring cubicles and spend most of their days complaining to each other about this nightmare office and coming up with excuses to call Gavin up to hang out with them. Together they play really petty little tricks on one of the managers who always screams at everyone, and when Geoff catches them at it one day they think they are done for. Jeremy sees his life flash before his eyes, Michael is halfway through fantasising about flipping some desks on his way out, but Geoff just makes a suggestion, tells them last week’s efforts were much more impressive, and goes about his way. From that point on he really can’t get rid of the two of them.

Gavin as IT’s wonderchild- there isn’t a piece of hardware he can’t coax into working or any kind of software he can’t navigate in his sleep. That’s really the only reason he hasn’t been fired a million times over, what with the way he ignores clothing standards (except for on  his inexplicable ‘Fancy Fridays’), rarely bothers with appropriately respectful deference, spends way too much of his time hanging out at Michael’s desk and keeps breaking into peoples accounts and leaving juvenile jokes and embarrassing viruses. But he’s just so damn good, and the fact that the terrifying head of IT has a huge soft spot for him doesn’t hurt.  

Ryan as the head of the IT department who almost everyone is legitimately scared of. Who likes the computers much more than the idiots who insists on breaking them, glowers at everyone who brings him their stupid problems and is way more built than any tech nerd has any right to be. Ryan makes the whole group amusingly nervous at first, he and Geoff have a whole infamous history complete with a public screaming match over an unrecoverable destroyed hard-drive after all, but Gavin drags him along to enough lunches for everyone to see he’s mostly just a very cranky marshmallow.

Jack who works in human resources and used to be so optimistic, legitimately trying to improve everyone’s experience before slowly getting crushed under the growing hatred for the business. Jack who knows exactly who is responsible for the near daily complaints their office receives about anonymous troublemakers but is just as exasperated with the management as everyone else so helps keep them all out of trouble.  

They take their lunches together, occasionally joined by Lindsay from administration and, strangely enough, two members of office security, Matt and Trevor. They make a pretty motley crew; half unnaturally peppy, half perpetually angry rainclouds, sharing each others misery and covertly planning their next big rebellion. Stealing stationary and packed lunches, spiking the punch at office parties, sabotaging the photocopier, posting embarrassing google histories, accidentally uncovering their bosses’ shady white collar dealings and making off with millions of dollars in stolen money. Wait, what?
