“He had ecstasies innumerable that other children can never know, but he was looking through the window at the one joy from which he must be for ever barred." --J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

do you want me to tell you a story?

Yes please—

Okay — okay —

Once upon a time, there was a little boy who had a sheep and a rose. But he was afraid that the sheep would eat the rose.

So he made his sheep a box.

A box for a sheep? How peculiar. 

Because boxes are important for sheep! A muzzle would be worse.

Oh? Would it? Freedom of speech versus freedom as a whole?

That would mean that the sheep couldn’t talk or eat! Wouldn’t that be the worst? Besides — the box wasn’t closed, the sheep could peek his head out whenever he wanted.

fortroughs said: That’s mean to say —

Shhhhh, Pierre, shhhhhhh.

[he frowns]

That’s downright mean.

{ frowns too }

It is not.

Mean is taking a colony from another country as a trophy rather than actual interest, then hardly paying it any mind for nearly two centuriesMean is forcing said colony’s people to go to war and lose their lives without any say on the matter. Mean is forcing an entire people to adapt to your culture, your language, your religion, and still not care about said people afterwards.

What I said was not mean. It was entirely justified.

[ the boy — visibly flinches, eyes widening at the other’s scathing words. But he knows better than to argue — he’s not stupid. ]

Oh —

—okay.

I don’t like it when you look sad.

I tried to tell her to stop even though I was scared but she didn’t listen.

Did you know that painting your face when you’re sad makes you feel better sometimes? I did that. 

I’m really not in the mood for face paints, Peter.

She’s mean.

I don’t like her.

Me neither.
