Excuse me, I'm making perfect sense, you're just not keeping up
Slow News Day 2: Electric Boogaloo
Trevor and Jason, unsorted fragment:

Drunk enough we're arguing theology. What about, like, Nazis? Daleks?

I would want, I say before he can get onto the idea of Nazi daleks, for them to understand what they had done.

He looks incredulous. And that's all?

That's not enough?

A pause.

...Fucking hardcore, man.

Last night was... um... Interesting. Yes. I will use the word "interesting". While the exchange above was not written in response to Current Events, I kept coming back to this fragment of character-study as I tried to sort out my own reactions; Trevor and Jason were actually a fascinating frame to consider the news through, because Trevor in particular has that built-in tension of I'm really not supposed to approve of this but then again I've lived through the entire godawful 20th century to wrestle with, and then he's having to explain himself to someone who's barely old enough to remember why everyone's mad in the first place.

(I believe what they're arguing about here is the idea of judgment -- to the extent that Jason has any particular religious background the demographics suggest it'd be a fairly mainstream Protestant denomination that his parents were because their parents were etc., and I doubt he's given it much individual thought at this point in his life as such beyond handwaving the bits that disapprove of werewolves. Trevor, as I've mentioned extratextually, is a Quaker, and has given that a lot of thought.)
