Angel vs. Demon: No Tear-Jerkers

Me: “No.”

Angel: “Why not? The story would truly have depth.”

Me: “It’s not that type of story.”

Angel: “But people like tear-jerkers.”

Me: “Not everyone wants to shed tears. I’m not putting a reunion or bonding scene between these characters.”

Angel: “But why?”

Me: “It does nothing for the story. This isn’t about how he copes with his parents. It’s about how he copes with himself as he is. What his parents did to him is in the past, this story shows how he feels now. And right now, I need him to feel this way to drive him forward.”

Angel: “What about later? Later in the series?”

Me: “Maybe. If I feel it necessary.”

Demon: “Just have him kill off his parents. Problem solved.”

Angel: “And this is why we ignore you.”
