>>97370016>The "don't sell sir john I was afraid" bit really sold that. It's all stiff upper lip throughout this horror but at the end of the day they're kids from across the world in a place they probably never wanted to be in, let alone die in
this is beautifully said. I think that the Episode 3 Eulogy sums that up really well: ""In his flight, Jacob lighted upon a certain place and tarried there because the sun was set. He thought it a terrible place. No house, no hearth. A ladder set upon the earth and the top of it reaching to the heavens. Behold, the lord stood above it and he said, 'I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places, wherever thou goest; For I will not leave thee.' And in Jacob's dream, he saw the invisible world, Companion to the known one we perceive... With its rocks and moon... Its ice fields and brute animals... And all the people we know... Have ever known... And will ever know. So complete it would seem to leave no room for its invisible brother world which is yet more immense than the one we see. For in this world dwell the angels who keep us, The Lord who will not leave us... And the departed, who though cleaved from the frame that carried them, yet live. Newest to their ranks, our bright captain... Sir John. Who, in the virtue and strength of his every gesture, showed himself the elect of the lord... destined to reign with Christ forever. The invisible world of spirits, though unseen, was present for Jacob. Not future, not distant, but present. And it is now, and it is here, among us, if we open our eyes... And see his truth...Amongst us."
