Bradley Rape count: 1

It was metaphysical, but it was rather savage, millions hurting a little girl, so I count it.

Trish O.O

Is your wife a reader at least? I mean, does she really listen or is she more like oh-I-wish-he-would-shut-up-but-"one-ring-to-bind-them" ... kind of like my family when I used to tell them about my favourite books?

Bradley It's more like, "I have read a few fantasies, but at this moment I'd rather gouge out my eyes and suffer being peed on by gorillas for hours than listen to this guy one second longer," but yeah, your intuition is pretty spot on. :)

Faith, in the book, got it pretty rough, it's true, but it was more of a "drowning man" situation than a real rape, but it was still pretty horrific.

Trish Ehem, "drowning man" situation as in "I better let them do it because then I'll survive"? Because that is just the same. Actually, it's not, it's a trope. A way of explaining things away and make them seem less horrible (which is BS).

Wowo. Rather letting gorillas pee on oneself for hours ... what drugs did you use to get her to say yes?! xD

Bradley "Drowning man" as in, we're all getting mystically mindfucked by a god and this girl happens to be a safe harbor that everyone can use to save themselves. To be fair, the god was pretty nasty and powerful, and Faith was a shining light in the dark, but she was still a little girl and she didn't ask to be their hope.

(No real rape ensued. She was more like a helpless conduit for drowning men who would climb on your back to get a breath and wind up pushing you under.)

Trish Hm, glad there was no actual rape, but not sure this they-climbed-on-her-back-thus-pushing-her-under is actually better. *lol*

Bradley I always prefer tales of killing over rape any day. :)

(Did I just say that?) lol

Trish Muhahahahaha. Yeah, to someone else, this might have sounded weird (at best). But you were lucky; you were talking to me. ;P
