A lot of sci fi fiction loses my interest because it assumes that I have ANY interest in general misanthropy.

I've BEEN to that edge. Unless you're going to show me how that mentality interacts with the good people of the world, how to use it to protect oneself, where it does more harm than good...I want you to focus on the better people in your setting. Don't take me for a car ride and expect me to enjoy sitting next to an internet misanthrope.

This is partially me thinking about Durandal in Marathon, partially me thinking about how Gun Gale Online's drama is utterly dependent on the assumption that anyone worth talking to would want to hang out with Pitohui.
