‘sup, here’s a reminder that sacrificing chloe is your choice. literally, that is up to you. so yes, you can do that and doom her to be a character that only exists to suffer and suffer and then die, and that sure is one dreary fucking story, and hardly one that i could find any solace or beauty in myself.
alternatively, you can save her, and have her story be one of a girl who was abandoned by everyone she loved and had resigned to a life of pain and solitude, until the one person most precious to her returned and proved to her, again and again, that she is important, cherished, and worth the world. you can have her be a character who suffered and prevailed and survived until she was finally shown the greatest measure of love a human could possibly give, freed of the town that tormented her, and given a chance at a future with the person she loves.
for some reason, people would rather focus on the negatives of the former rather than the positives of the latter. but really. it’s up to you, dudes.
