I will talk to Bianca about Rey.

It would make sense if you are there too, yes?

Because while Bianca is not a bad person, we should tell her that she should be nice to Rey and not hurt her or run off with someone else, yes? When things are not going well it will help to know that there are consequences outside of your partner for not being nice.

[He would usually hear this as an argument why one should not break with the family for the sake of marrying someone, but Rey is obviously a different case. One, this is her first partner and she picked her herself, two, it's a her, so he doubts that any family would have picked that one anyway. But she's also immortal and infertile so she doesn't need and can't have biological children anyway.]

It isn't intimidation if you just state facts. It is a warning so she can't complain after that nobody told her what would happen, yes?

People can be very silly and not realize the obvious.

[=D It's not a threat if you can back it up.]

It is not good to withhold information if the information could keep bad things from having to happen.

Withholding information is not respecting Rey.

So you don't want to protect Rey like she would protect you?

[Rey might not be what one would call a good person, necessarily; and she has her issues with the concept of family. But from what he has observed, there and here, makes him absolutely certain that as reluctant as she may be to admit it, Rey will be a reliable ally to those whom she cares about. And he knows that she cares about Nick.]

Bianca isn't a person who would be chased off by a warning or even a threat. [That seems like a rather pointless objection to him. He gets the feeling that telling her not to date Rey (which is absolutely not his plan) would actually make her more intent on doing exactly that.]

And she's nice, just a bit silly. You should invite her for dinner so you'll know her better, yes? [She's not Muscovy's most favourite person in the city, if just because there's a few that he just likes a lot, but she's part of his household and Firo cares about her. So that are two important reasons to approve of this relationship.]

muscovy: (just watching and listening)
From: [personal profile] muscovy
She would not be intimidated by me.

[So there is obviously no issue there. As much as he wouldn't change his plans if he would believe that she'd be intimidated by him telling her that he will have Rey's back without compromise. Because they're more than allies or housemates. They're family, even if Rey is still coming around.]

Because that is the case, I have to have it, because if I was intimidating, she would not need a warning because she would already know that she would have a problem with me, too, if she hurts Rey, yes?

muscovy: (I can help us)
From: [personal profile] muscovy
It is not what you do, and that is very silly.

It means that things will escalate that would not have to escalate.

[Knowing that attacking someone would call allies, or that someone is strong enough alone to effectively cause issues to an attacker and their village can keep the balance in an area effectively and force people to play nice, preventing more death and destruction than necessary. It does of course not hold up forever, but what does?]

muscovy: (the most reassuring laugh)
From: [personal profile] muscovy
You conflate a threat and a warning, and that will get you in trouble one day. A warning is when you support something not happening by laying out consequences. A threat is when you make someone so scared or angry that they will attack you. They are very different.

muscovy: (until we meet again)
From: [personal profile] muscovy
It would be better, but I cannot make you.

[He would need to be a lot stronger for that.]

Until we talk again.
