It’s not that I don’t like what you say, this is just discussion about how we view the story. I don’t agree with @MWollaeger either. He put the OS in Situation and that doesn’t feel right to me either, even though I can see why he might think that. Story is subjective and we can’t escape that because we each bring our own minds and experiences to the table.
As to Andy’s arc…
LOL. see. while I was writing this @MWollaeger posted the exact opposite of what I said; he thinks the sociogram is the motivation for future stories and I think Quynh is.
… I was not clear enough on Andy’s Arc, I apologize. The big questions in this story…to me…is…does what we do make a difference in the world? What difference should we be trying to make?
It was never a question about whether or not she’d save her friends, to me progress toward saving them was more like a benchmark.
Oddly, I can make an argument for Andy being either Change or Steadfast. Currently, I’m leaning toward Steadfast, where she’s growing into her resolve to continue to charge at windmills, to fight the good fight.
