Yeeep. The Cyborg Werewolf story is broken like a big, broken Thing.
And neither beta who's gotten back to me so far are sure that's the right decision.
It's the decision I want him to make. So I guess I just have to explain his thinking better. Or come up with a better plot reason for what he does. I just thought of a Thing, and then rejected it (out of hand) because that's not him making a Decision (again), that's him being Carried Along By Events (again).
Writing is hard. Why do we do this again?
