Kanna shouldn't be...but she's a little slow on the uptake. And Odysseus is going through cha-cha-cha-changes!

Imagine sucking hard on your first try and now going through the exact same things again. But it is even worse since you are much weaker and all that preparation was for nothing. Fate works outside of everything, eh?

Yeah...I'd hate to be in his shoes...

Odysseus is supposed to embody the Greek tragedy. His name is ironic, though, 'cause he's a lot more like Oedipus...but I was NOT going to give him that name 'cause...he in no way wanted to marry his mom (unwittingly or otherwise) D:

It's going to get worse for him...but then things will slowly start to get better...kind of :( I probably shouldn't have been so mean to him...but everyone's going to have a lot of baggage eventually...

Hitting rock bottom makes the victory all the sweeter? Maybe? Maybe not. I always questioned that "how do you know when you have it good if you've never had it bad?" Hm...I mean...I don't know how much I agree with it...I've never been starving, but I know without a doubt it'd be bad...I've not *thankfully* lost any limbs, but I know I kinda want to keep as many as possible.

I'd suck at philosophy XD

Ah, I would not worry about that in the future. It is just a name. And it is just the part that people remember the most, lmao.
But ya. I get it. Perhaps Sisyphus as well. Similarly cursed though in his case he had to repeat the task over and over again failing every time. For sticking his nose where it did not belong. Kinda fits? :D
Although Camus had a bit different view on things: "The struggle itself is enough to fill a man's heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy."

I would say when yours or somebody else's life is threatened then it is about the best time to act. Plenty of stories where people managed to turn things around for them but not a single one when somebody came back from the dead.
I suppose that also fits, haha.

XD YEEES! Sisyphus would have been more appropriate (but...it sounds like a disease XD Oops, hope I'm not insulting anyone with that name...)

I wonder if the Greeks were inspired by seeing a beetle rolling dung up a hill? XD That was, apparently one of my grandpa's favorite sayings: It's like watching a dung beetle roll a turd up a hill in the rain." o_O He thought it was funny, or so I'm told XD

Still, I think he may be better off than Prometheus. What a horrible, horrible way to punish someone!

In molecular physics there is this thing called Sisyphus cooling method. In very short, you use a laser to change the energy state of a molecule so it starts changing its kinetic energy into potential energy. Climbing an "energy hill". Then you use another laser so it "falls back down" turning Ep into Ek but ends up with less energy and slows down thus gets colder. You repeat that over and over again.
If you meet a Sisyphus then this sounds cooler (no pun) than a disease ;D
But ya. In your case it depends on how many timelines there are and if he can constantly go back. Sucks :(

LMAO! No idea. Grandpas tend to say stuff like that. Mine used to say "it is like putting your hand in a haystack on a hot day" and it simply was that you should not do it :D :D
Or "you are restless as a plastic bottle at the bottom of a waterfall" :D
But I need to stop typing because I am laughing so much remembering it.
