I feel like throwing out an angsty as fuck camp camp end game scenario and sorry you're the one I'm gonna force it upon: Basically David dies, in some awful, gut wrenching and heartbreaking way, and maybe it was even Max's fault indirectly. Max is shouting that the idiot can't die and David's tearful last words are some soppy shit along the lines of 'it's not your fault' and 'I'm just so glad I got to spend time with you amazing kids i love you' he falls still and Max fucking looses it.(1 of 3)
Max screaming between sobs: ‘no no NO NO! WHAT HAPPENED TO “SOMEBODY FUCKING HAS TO” DAVID??? YOU CANT JUST- you know what? YOU KNOW WHAT?? Im gonna be even MORE of an insufferable happy idiot thAN YOU EVER WERE. I c-cant promise I’ll be able to do it right away being that angry little bastard you had to deal with…b-but I’m gonna try okay? I’m gonna try for you asshole! a-and then youll regret fucking dying on us, REGRET THAT YOULL NEVER GET TO SEE HOW YOU CHANGED ME?? FUCKING IDIOT!’ (2 of 3)
Eventually Gwen has to pull a screaming Max away from David, but Max swears through tears that he’ll keep his promise…Years pass, and eventually, Max becomes the newest Camp Campbell Counsellor. He’s considerate and a little lax, but there’s a certain enthusiasm to him reminiscent of someone long passed. Max never forgot that idiot camp counsellor from his childhood who wanted nothing more than to make camp fun and he forever keeps the memories of that man near and dear to his heart. (3 of 3)
Okay, I know I said I like angst…but gosh, you guys are getting really dark.
But in all honesty, I have nothing to add to this. You’ve got some amazing angst here, Anon, and I’m all about Max eventually having a breakdown because he indirectly got David hurt.
