"He did seem very black and white thinking-y. Which, fair, given that his enemies just ate him, I guess, that probably does not bring out the forgiveness in people. We should still note his opinions, since he knows more than we do, but we should note that they are opinions.

"They're aliens. It could totally be how aliens work."

"I think... if someone who had just survived the Rape of Nanking said that the Japanese were evil, they would be wrong, but they would be, like, understandably wrong?

"He didn't give us any. They might or might not get access to people's memories and stuff. I feel like maybe if a bunch of aliens were going around trying to speak with human mouths for the first time, it would be hard, even if they knew the language?"

"I haven't noticed anybody talking oddly, have you?"

Permalink

"No. They might just absorb it or something, I dunno."

Permalink

"Or they haven't taken that many people yet."

"Yeah. That's possible. But Elfangor thought they'd take over within the year if no one stopped them."

"I don't really get the sense that he ran this plan through a committee while he was dying. 

"I think we need to know more."

Permalink

"That sounds like a good plan. I'm going to go home now."

"OK.

"...do we wanna, like, decide where we were all night?"

Permalink

"There's literally no explanation for this my parents would be happy with."

Permalink

"OK, but if your parents are secretly aliens, there are some things that'll be more suspicious or less suspicious?"

Permalink

"I guess. --I'll probably just say the teacher abandoned me in detention."

Permalink

"Until - ten? Or whatever time it is now?"

Permalink

"Yeah. They'll believe me, I don't break rules."
