I updated the Cast Page to include Lu Pai, Dr. Milan, Una, Ravazhi, and Nikel! I also added in links to the first appearance for each, following reader suggestion.
Well Kali, think of it this way: You and Tama have something in common when it comes to saying things you later regret.
Bluntness is a trait that Kali and I share. Fortunately, Cory says this is something he likes about me. Either he’s very rare, or very kind. Or both. In general, I have not found the world to be a very appreciative place for bluntness, which I find sad. I hate, hate, HATE being lied to. I’d much rather know where I stand on something than have the uneasy “comfort” of a white lie. I tend to be the paranoid sort, so I always assume something is wrong. Especially when people say everything is good. I tend to feel much more comfortable with people when they’ll tell me one thing wrong, even if it’s small, than if they say everything is perfect. Even with friends, I’ll tend to go through bouts of panic until we establish that IF something goes wrong, they WILL tell me about it. I guess I just am uncomfortable with being comfortable!
What do you think about white lies?
