So, yeah, Frode is still perhaps a jerk for wanting to leave Anna to die. But I still feel it's important to at least show where he's coming from, and to have at least part of his reasoning to be relatable. Because really, how many of us haven't wished that things could be simpler? Real life is really complicated, and things are never as easy as left or right, yes or no. There's a lot of nuance to everything, and I feel it's perfectly valid to want everything to just be simple again, like when we were younger and the biggest choices we had were whether to do a Betamax binge-watch of either Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or He-Man. Unfortunately for Frode and for us though, things do change, and life has a way of getting very real on you. So sadly, there's very little in this world that's black and white. Sorry, Frode, you're going to have to keep living in a world of gray, as that's what this world is.

Except for putting pineapples on pizza, you monster. That's a black and white issue right there. Come on, Internet, fight me!

Nah, pineapple does not belong on pizza, nor anything else tropical, fruity, or otherwise outside the traditional toppings. Then again, so long as I don't have to eat it, I'm not going to get bent out of shape about it, but I reserve the right to call you a pizza heathen. ;)

Frode is relatable to a certain extent, and I certainly don't blame him for wanting to escape from the control of people with highly dangerous reputations, but to put his fear into a context that he might understand, perhaps someone should tell him point blank, "If you're terrified by these people, why do you want to piss them off by letting the girl die or by running away?" Sometimes practical needs to outweigh fear. ;)

Heh, indeedy. Though, people often don't really react in rational ways. I should know, I've made tons of stupid decisions in my life =p

And yeah, I'm the same with pizza. If you want to put pineapples on it, go ahead. But don't expect me to eat any of it, you pizza heathen, hehe

Check out other great comics!
