I plan to live forever or die trying

From theatrical_muse: What is so important to you that without it, life would not be worth living? Why?

I'm not sure there is anything, though I came close to wishing it was all over on Xenon, back then with nothing left to hope for and Avon and the others despising me. And it was worse, if that's possible, after that mess on Gauda Prime, but it was all uphill after that. Well, it had to be.

To answer the question, I don't think there's any one thing anyway. I could live without hope if I had love, and without love if I had friendship, and without either if I had hope. I have all three now, so that just goes to show, you should never give up and say life isn't worth it because you never know your luck in a big galaxy, as my mum used to say.

The way I see it, life is always worth living--if not now, then it will be soon.


Go on, egg me on

From theatrical_muse: If you could do one totally irresponsible or even bad thing with absolutely no consequences, what would it be and why?

Get Servalan. Look, I know it's a bit out of character because I've never gone in for violence, but when I think of how she hounded us and deliberately played with us in that last year on Xenon, I'd really like to make her pay. I couldn't kill her though, but I'd be prepared to set her up so someone else did it. Exposing her identity and manufacturing a bit of very damning evidence (not that there's a lack of it but I suspect she's covered her traces far too well) would probably do it.

And I'd go to her execution, even with the huge bounty on my head and all. Yeah, I'd probably not be able to watch, but I'd take Kerril and she would, so I'd know they'd really done the evil snake in. But before they did, I'd like to throw an appropriately rotten egg or too, just to get the ball rolling. Because I'm sure my fellow Deltas would like to express themselves with the substandard fruit and veg we get fobbed off with.

[wistful sigh] Yeah. I'd like that.
