Leave Carley Alone

Lee should avoid any romantic or otherwise “close” relationship with Carly.

And in a nutshell here is why:

Carly already knows about Lee’s criminal past and can expose him at any time and on any whim. So she already has him by the balls. If they decided to get intimate she will then have him by the balls and the heart. She at anytime can make any choice she wants and will have to become number 1 priority to Lee trumping even Clementine. To make matters worse if they have a falling out then in her emotional rage or vengeance she may expose Lee’s past.

I hope the game gives Lee the option to become "close" with Carly, the romance drama would be ironically comforting in an otherwise hopeless time.

Lee should avoid any romantic relationship with Carly at all costs and keep her at a arms distance.

  • can i ask why you made a new thread when there is plenty of carley threads already...

  • @Milosuperspesh said: can i ask why you made a new thread when there is plenty of carley threads already...

    Sure.

    I made this thread because I felt that the threads regarding a possible romance between Carley and Lee did not explore this particular avenue. Particularly the idea that a relationship with Carley would be bad. The other threads hinted at the idea that a possible relationship was in the works but not the consequences of said relationships. I felt it was unique enough to warrant a new thread.

    I'll leave it to the German and his squad to make the last call on my threads merits.

    and I'll leave it to you and your kind to critique it.

  • i didn't critique it did i ?

    just stating the facts

    Sometimes I have trouble with English words. So I have to be very precise. To critic something means to be critical of it. To give an evaluation. To ask "Why did you do this, when this over here.." is to being critical of my thread.

    The error is probably mine, English is tough for me. Like this for example. I plainly said that I think Lee should stay clear of Carley. And then in a new sentence I said that I hope to see the choice available. Confusing sentence I bet, especially when one skims. Saying "I think this should happen" while also saying "I hope I have a choice though" seems confusing at first. That's why I like to re read for clarity.

    but only cause english is hard for me.

    Also..can we stay on topic or did you want to make this personal? Help by contributing to the thread.

  • Is your plan to not trust the people you meet who are not trustworthy and not trust the people you meet who are trustworthy? Your making the ZA more challenging than it needs to be...not that it has not already pegged the challenge meter.

    Lee and Carley are friends. You know how lust is..(did I say that out loud? I meant love) it just finds a way if it's meant to be.

    I admit I'm confused by the first paragraph. How have I advocated not trusting people who are trustworthy and vise versa.

    No matter.

    Well..I get what you mean about lust (love) but this is not a fairy tale, as you mention the ZA is challenging and we need not pretend that just because two people fall into love (lust) doesn't mean they will stay that way. There will be fall out.

    Can't recall the characters names so I have to use adjectives but in the comics in the prison scene, the black football character and the white woman. When michonne came in and started sleeping with the football character, and the effect it had on the whole group in regards to how it affected the white woman. That was real.

    I am suggesting the option to allow that to happen, for a relationship to blossom, and I am advocating that (in my play through) Lee not take that option.

  • I hear you and understand why you wouldn't take the option but my Lee probably would.

    There needs to be at least some normalcy in the walker world that the group is forced to live in.

    Besides, I believe with all he's been through Lee deserves to get himself some booty :)

    LOL. You win the thread.

  • I don't get the romance option. I get it that people want their character to have a romantic partner because that seems to be the status quo for most story driven/path creating video games these days. But Lee seems like the kinda guy who isn't really worried about romance when he's got a little girl to take care of. I mean love will come for the guy but it's only been 3 to 4 months(depending on where episode 4 starts off) does he really need to start looking for love when right now he's looking to survive?

    But I do like your dea of Carley becoming emotional unstable due to her desire for Lee. It adds a drama card that could potentially be tapped. Also seems very reminiscent of Carol 's plight in the comics.

  • Maybe Lilly would be a better pairing for Lee. It's not like she's chopped liver right? She doesn't know Lee is a murderer and is already unstable.
