One shock after another. First seeing Luther he doesn't seem angry, not violent...don't trust him, ever! and now Hogzilla getting back together?

"No. And you are playing again? After all what happened?"

Oh dear, I probably shouldn't have reminded him about that. I still have nightmares about how he handled our last "discussion".

He answers quickly, as if trying to talk over Tara's last question. "Yes, I'm playing. I have to, remember? The company never did get that last album, and until that happens, you're stuck with me."

"I don't know... I will have to talk with Patrick. I am not sure this is a good idea. This must be some kind of sick joke. And neither will Trevor think it a good idea. "

Suddenly remembering Trevor, Tara starts to walk home, Trevor will get pretty worried.

"Don't matter. It's gonna happen. The label's driving this. You can't fly away from this one."

If Tara were watching Luther, she'd have seen a brief flash of that piercing confidence in his eyes again.

"Just gotta lie there and take it."

You are curious? Heh. So am I. I figure he has to have something going on in his head--probably something involving 15-year-old pyrotechnic charges. I'm still working on what that something is, though. Also, I imagine that prison changes a man (especially considering his specific aftermath last game)

Quite so. Maybe you can use a dice suggestion by Brian and Stelio?

Although we've had much darker scenes than this in the past, still this doesn't look to be at all favourable to Tara. I suggest a black die.

I agree. It presages bad things.

I'll make it unanimous, and end the scene there with Tara walking away.

It's a black die, Leonie. To whom will you give it?

Walking away from the café, Patrick was thoughtful. He got out his cellphone. "Hey, Tara! You'll never guess who I was just talking with."

As Patrick stays quiet Tara suspects Julio may be history already.

You're making me curious love, who were you talking with?

I suppose this is the next day for Tara, the day after she met Luther at the bus stop.

You mean it's true? Luther didn't lie then... Are you even considering it?

"He didn't get my number, he was right in front of me all of a sudden yesterday evening. Pat, is it really true? It would be a great opportunity for you to get back in the business again. I know it has been hard on you these past years. But even with Luther being kind of normal I don't look forward to it."

All thoughts of the potential reunion got shoved to one side as Patrick concentrated entirely on caring for his sister.

"Christ! He turned up in person? That's not good. Be very careful and try not to be alone. Not to get you paranoid, but he could be watching you and may know where you live. Tell Trevor what's going on; he deserves to know and needs to be aware of how violent Luther can be. Do you want me to come over? Do you want to crash at mine for a while?"

Oh come on Patrick is way too nice. Any suggestions Dave, Brian? I could have it go either way, although for black I need to dig a bit deeper.

Patrick is way too protective. This is a fine set up for a nasty confrontation between Luther and Patrick. Patrick: "Did you go near my sister?!" Luther: "Did you fuck my wife?!"

Tara has the opportunity here to distance herself from her brother if she wants to: "Stop trying to smother me! I'm an adult and my own person, and I can look after myself! You're overreacting and trying to get my worried!" The dynamic from the end of the last game unbalanced their relationship: Patrick needs Tara more than Tara needs Patrick.

Plus we've nicely established that Jules lied to Patrick, and that will come back to haunt one or other of them in due course. Sure, at the time we as players thought that Jules hadn't spoken to Luther before Patrick, but through emergent play we now discover that wasn't the case!

This definitely looked to me like Patrick trying to go way overboard to (presumably) save his sister (or save her for himself?). So yes, way too nice, but for what goal?

To choose a die here would be directing the scene, rather than evaluating it. I think I'd like to see things go poorly for Patrick. More precisely, I think I'd like to see some discord between Patrick and Tara (you two have been too lovey-dovey up to now ), and I think that that would translate to a black die for Patrick.

"Oh relax Patrick, Trevor knows Luther. But I don't think it will be necessary. Luther seems changed. I think your job is getting too much in your head. And staying at our place? Trevor will kick you right out. He knows after all the time watching us at the shows and won't have any of it.

Besides I'm not sure if I will join, my career is going just fine.
