[TricksterHands] Executioner [part 2]

Share
Do you believe in fairy-tales?
Probably not. You are taught to be realistic. To live in the present, not a pipe dream.
However...
There's a place where the history, or rather legends are made.


...But putting this obscure opening line aside, here is the second part, explaining what drives the Executioner. Yet again, let's start with the origins and first drafts.


There was a girl.


Not really a love interest at first, but more like a very close friend. With one minor peculiarity, so to say, - she was unable to feel anything due to a curse. No feelings, no emotions, everything just being flat and dull. At some point, the guy decides to find a way to fix it, and flees from the school - to the place where he believes he will find a cure. Sounds romantic, huh.

So, what's the current thoughts on this? Once again, I like the core, but let's flesh the whole thing out.

First of all, the details. As I've already mentioned in the previous post, back then I didn't pay any attention to stuff happening within the school. To think of it, there can be tons of possible interactions between the two - first meeting and getting acquainted, exploring the ways to overcome the curse, girl watching boy's emotional responses in attempt to re-learn how to feel, and so on.

And the second point - the teacher's involvement, again. I can't share too much about this right now, but let's say she (yeah, she) has some influence on the disciple's motivation, and what's more important, the "do you believe in fairy-tales" motif is true for the master too, though it means something completely different for her.
