The Noob 26
I liked Alicia. I especially liked her relationship with Evan; the conversations between the two of them were some of my favorite scenes to write in this series. But her part in this story is over. This isn't a story about Evan and Paul and Alicia; it's a story about Evan and Paul.
Plus, you know, I ran out of appropriate pictures of Manu Bennett.
I think it's important, too, to touch on the idea of death in a story like this. Legends of the Dark Tower universe is about learning to live in a fantasy world; death is a part of that. And it's important, too, to acknowledge that, while resurrection is easy and automatic in a game like Legends of the Dark Tower, it might not be so easy once the game has turned real. The stakes are too low if death is temporary.
