The short only confirmed the feelings I had (towards Priscilla/Zeus) since I first read Priscilla’s journal in the code over a month ago. Zeus is a parasite and I still don’t understand how or why Priscilla fell in love with him. Their relationship is an icky thing and a few moments of ‘tenderness’ does nothing to make it more palatable. Honestly, I don’t pity Priscilla either. Harsh maybe, but I don’t sympathise with those who insist on orchestrating their own drama. As someone who firmly believes that love is a choice, all I see is Priscilla choosing to love Zeus (and have children with him) despite having every reason not to. She may have been told it was inevitable, but it seems very much like a self-fulfilling prophecy, one ultimately driven by her fatalism.
As for my MC Lethanavir, he already thinks Zeus is a disgusting being and wants nothing to do with him or the gods. When he looks at the gods, all he can see are reflections of every unsavoury character he was forced to deal with during his time on the run, the embodiments of everything wrong in humanity. And Zeus is the king of them all. Knocking Zeus down a peg–or a thousand–would make its way onto his agenda one way or another, and the knowledge of the nature of Zeus and Priscilla’s relationship would only serve as fuel for his tirade. (If asked for his opinion on their relationship, he would say “Priscilla was a fool to fall for someone like him and Zeus was being his usual, repulsive self.”)
