[Serious] Bean and Achilles in Enders Shadow

2022.01.28 22:58 TailPipe-5 [Serious] Bean and Achilles in Enders Shadow

I've been a fan of the series for a almost a decade now. I've read (listened on auduble) all the books multiple times, and have especially enjoyed the shadow series, but something has been bugging me after my most recent reading. Is Achilles planning on killing Bean before they're reconnected in battle school? From Bean's perspective, yes and he was absolutely in the right to take the actions that he did. However, for the short time we're put into Achilles' viewpoint, it seems that he has no ill will toward Bean until their reunion.
Achilles seems to almost respect Bean, " and now, here he was in battle school, and who should be his first commander but little Bean, ready to take him under his wing, help him rise within this school. As if the universe was created to serve him.... Like Bean. It looked so promising at first. But then Bean started putting him down. Making sure the others saw that Achilles used to be Bean's Papa, but now he was just a soldier in Bean's army. There was no need for that, you don't go putting people down. Bean had changed. Back when Poke first put Achilles on his back shaming him in front of all those little children it was Bean who showed him respect. 'kill him' Bean had said. He knew then, that tiny boy, he knew that even on his back Achilles was dangerous. But he seemed to have forgotten that now... 'I was your friend and protector Bean, because you showed respect for me, But now I have to weigh that in the balance with your behavior here in Battle School. No respect for me at all.' "
Based on that, it seems that Achilles, from the moment he took Bean's bread in Rotterdam, maybe even from the beginning when Poke's crew knocked him down, Achilles didn't have the same need to kill Bean like with everyone else. Or at least it wasn't a conscious desire. Of course in that same passage Achilles talks about how grateful he was to Dr. Delamar and the teacher in Brussels, and he killed them both. There are things that Achilles had no way of knowing that would demand Bean's death. Seeing him and Poke at the docks and telling Sister Carlotta what happened. Does Achilles know that's what kept him out of battle school? Did he even know about battle school and that he was rejected from the program when he was taken to the school in Brussels?
If Achilles didn't have the same need to kill Bean, what was it that he promised Poke then? From the little knowledge we're given, were forced to agree with Bean's conclusions. But it could be something even simpler. What if he simply promised Poke he wouldn't tell the others she was a girl? To me that makes more sense, as after Bean reveals that Achilles has been calling Poke 'she and her' behind her back, Poke goes to Achilles. It could be that Achilles was going against Poke's pronouns in an attept to shame her, similar to how she shamed him.
This is why I love Orson Scott Card's writing. I don't know if it was interional, but it leaves so much room for debate in a seemingly throw way line. "you promised" was all Bean, and by extension, the reader heard and there could be so many more meanings than the one Bean comes up with. He could have promised not to leave the family, not to leave her, not to go after Ulysses or even something else that we don't know about yet.
I'd love to see a book from Achilles' perspective. From his time as a crippled bully, before becoming a papa, all the way to his death. Much the way Enders shadow was a different perspective on Enders game. I don't expect a different outcome, but I want to spend some more time in the mind of that killer, and get a better view at the things we were only able to glimpse through the Shadow series.
Pleaae let me know your thoughts on this.

2022.01.28 22:58 laura_laura_1 Morning hugs

My puppy (18 weeks, lab mix) is often a loud demon shark. I barely got any work done this week. His teething sharky bites are so annoying. He's the loudmouth in puppy class.
He sleeps like a little angel at night. Gets right in his crate by our bed, no complaints, just ready for his special bedtime cookie. Sleeps until 645/7ish, perfect alarm clock. My partner went for morning potty duty this morning. Opened the crate and said, why isn't he getting out? He's still lying there sleepy. Well, he needs his morning hug!! You have to sit in front of the crate, with a lap for him to crash into and get a little snuggly hug before he's ready for the day. I got up and demonstrated. What a sweet little pup.
Then it's on to finding stray socks and waking up to another day of sharky bark monster.

Okay Flavor Once Every 2-6weeks 1. Peach Ring 2. Nemesis Tea

2022.01.28 22:58 leftstovetop Can you be an entry-level Tech Firm Accountant?

currently have an offer with B4 but tbh if I can get a bookkeeping/planning role that pays more, I think I’d rather do that bc my goal isn’t the CPA route. I know the benefits and pay of working in accounting departments of large tech firms are often better than public accounting and offer better work-life balance. just unsure if they require corporate experience or if they’ll hire straight out of a B.S.. Pls lmk if I’m wanting something unrealistic or not haha

Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuh,
Guys, I have something in mind which I wish to discuss with Allah Almighty about it, and I don’t like others to hear what I’m talking about.
I was wondering if through supplication would it be ok for me to have this privilege?

2022.01.28 22:58 iOnlyPlayPetBuilds [FFXV]Feels like a completely different game, yet it's the same game. Sutter

Playing on steam with any patch beyond 1.25 is a different game than playing on 1.25 and earlier. Yet they're the same game. How hasn't square fixed this yet?

Went from tons of stuttering, micro freezes for a second or two in and outside of combat.. to zero issues whatsoever. No stutter, no freezes no lag nothing. Smooth as expected.

2022.01.28 22:58 Phinsfan90 X-ray for children

Today, my 6 year old went to the GI to get a checkup. He's always had issues with pooping and he seems ro have a distended abdomen. Well, they did an x-ray first followed by blood work. Of course it was on Friday and so while the lab results are back and we can see them online, we can't talk to his doctor about them until Monday.
My question is, for a child who is 42 inches tall and only weighs ~42 pounds, will getting an x-ray of his entire abdominal area affect his blood work at all? Or that quickly? I'm really hoping the answer is yes, because the results of his blood work have my wife and I freaking out.
