Aye aye aye!
We're all over the place on this one.
Excited to finally see that @JohnDusenberry accepts this
but now it seems I have to work on @glennbecker on that!
Meanwhile, we're going have to have an argument about this:
For my part I came up with a storyform early on that I think is pretty solid and I haven't changed my Fixed Attitude about it (will I remain Steadfast to the end? Stay tuned!). I feel like it all fits and makes sense.
I posted what I had upthread @glennbecker, but if anyone is interested I can walk through it again one point at a time.
The biggest issue is seeing Marta as a Be-er in Mind. While I understand the inclination to see her immigrant status as a Universe problem (I did at first), everything else about her says Mind. I did run the same storyform with Marta in Universe and the IC in Mind, but it just didn't fit as well.
The question is, is "being an immigrant" always a Universe problem? Or is it possible that the conflict this causes her comes from another source (like prejudice against her and fear that her mother's status will be found out)?
Either of those options actually sound like Be-er / Mind to me (sneaking off to slam a champagne actually more so).
An even better example I point to is at the very beginning when she's with her mom and sister. Her sister is watching CSI, which is obviously upsetting given that Marta has just come from Harlan's death (we find out later her involvement in it). Marta's mother yells the sister to turn it off, but Marta says nothing; instead she just laughs at the absurdity and then cries; then she tells the sister "it's ok, you can turn it on again" ! Can anyone explain to me how that moment isn't an example of a Be-er in Mind?
