Let's pretend no one saw this last week, eh? So sorry again about the pre-emptive post, guys! Hopefully only a few of you caught it. thank you, Malin, for catching my mistake and fixing it!^_^

So - a reminder of why Cortland tends to scare people sometimes. Because THIS is still in him. hooo, boy - he still has some work to do.
Note to all: Don't park your car in alleys and un-alarmed XD

Ah, poor Cortland. It's good that he's able to take it out on vehicles instead of people, but he still has a ways to go. Maybe he could find a healthier outlet, like, say, talking about his feelings to, say, a boyfriend. For example.

When he saw his reflection in the car it broke my heart!! :( geez this guys needs to sort out some things. Hopefully we will see some character development!

You know what I love?
The fact that Cortland's reflection didn't have the snakeskin.

When he sees himself, even at his most frustrated, even at his angriest -- those coils and that barbed wire are in his heart, in his head, in his memory, under his skin... But he's just a guy, looking himself in the face, struggling to come to terms with who he is.

That's all any of us are, all any of us can ever really be.

I love reading this. I try really hard to create characters that are this engaging, this dynamic; you both make it look effortless.

@Kat: I know. ;_; I'm so glad that came across - it was seeing his own face that really triggered him. So much self-loathing there :(

@CatastropheJones: I love your comments and I'm so glad you've caught up with us - thank you for the lovely insight and thoughts, as ever! ^^ It's always a joy to read your comments!
Cortland doesn't seem to like looking himself in the face, does he? Poor sod. To have so much self-loathing at such a young age!
