Oh, Steven, why are you doubting yourself? The choices you make are always excellent! /so much sarcasm
SPOILERS FOR SALVATION, DON’T READ AHEAD IF YOU DON’T WANT SPOILERS FOR THIS NOVEL
So, this is the point where Steven starts doubting his decisions. Please note that in this book alone, this is after he:
So now he’s LETTING A WOMAN HE JUST MET BUY HIM COFFEE after she pretty much just told him that SHE’S A REPORTER AND WANTS TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS BLUE BOX THAT JUST SUDDENLY APPEARED HERE.
I mean, yeah, he thinks this might not be a good idea. BUT HE STILL GOES WITH HER.
GOD. DAMMIT. STEVEN.
I always love seeing people’s first reactions to Steven. Especially if they’re watching in order because it’s almost always ‘what the hell is wrong with this guy?’ and that’s probably the best way to meet him. Seeing a grown man run into a huge, burning building to save a stuffed panda really prepares you well for all of the bad decisions and DAMMIT STEVEN moments to come.
