re Cup0fDOOM: is it bad that I find torso-George a really funny mental image?
re sarall: she doesn't have much of a place to go, they had ducked behind the curtain for a quick hiding place, but the only escape route would require leaving the curtain and passing into veiw.
re dragonmaiden50: oh, Drake is fighting the urge to monologue for now
re Onasaki: and I must reply to the 300 quote by continuing your "give into your anger" with "and your journey to the dark side will be complete!"
re LuluMoon: ah, but he must. Dragons always take terrible vengeance.
re StellaFrost: yup. The loss of family is what he's avenging, so he can't in his mind leave George's family intact.
re Barnes: we shall see...
re FleetNightHuntress: his manipulations of stories have placed Drake in the villainous role, but revenge is a staple of dragons in stories, so its already somewhat a part of Drake's nature.
re Bearagirl119: but dragon revenge requires going above and beyond. he has no choice but to sink to their level.
re Skittsue: oh, but he is
re BloodyGem: stone doesn't burn so well, but he'll do his best (the tapestries will at least)
re Satu-aka:well, there is certainly death
re Messourie:enjoying the revenge rampage are you?
Well it's rather simple. He may look cute and cuddly now, but if you let him live, he could grow up to kill you.
Especially if you kill his father right in front of him.
The revenge business. Has to be all or nothing or the whole thing is worthless.
revenge is one of those things that just keep escalating isn't it? they kill someone you love, you kill them, someone who loved them comes back to kill you, a friend of yours kills them etc., perfectly understandable though...
If Drake spares St.G's family St.G would come to the inescapable conclusion that Drake was less of a monster then St.G was. Drake killing St.G's family would justify in St.G's mind all the previous carnag. Sparing them would be Drake's most cruel and lasting revenge.
Yes, destroy the family in front of him. Remember your own dead. Remember the children! If he left the child alive, he could end up with someone still seeking revenge for killing his father and the whole revenge cycle would carry on.
For some reason I can see: "Hello! My name is Junior St. George, you killed my father, prepare to die!"
