So there I was, watching the first few episodes of Berserk (and trying to shut up the manga-verse voice in my head) and I… wasn’t struck by ideas for writing. I think I was too busy squee-ing at the utter ghei of Griffith’s and Guts’ early days. *cough*
The striking came much later, and this was the mini-result:
He doesn’t like weak people because when they die, he feels that he’s somehow failed in protecting them (no matter how unreasonable and illogical the thought); that’s why he finds it easier – though not much of a comfort – to hate them and be the cause of their death; at least this way, there’s a reason for his guilt.
This may or may not lead to something. Only the vaguest ideas had nibbled in the past.
