So… there’s a reason Scott hasn’t appeared in any other Tales, and won’t be showing up again.

Teenagers are notoriously bad at taking good advice. But they can pretty good at offering it. It’s a good idea to listen to your friends when they start raising red flags.

There’s a story I have in a file on the back burner that focuses on a character like Scott. As the protagonist of the story, it gets into his head more than this does, and I know I’ll take heat for presenting him as a person, instead of a monster. The gist of it is that he’s a bad person, but not just because he’s got a thing for minors… it’s because he puts that ahead of respecting and protecting them. And (spoilers) he figures that out in the end.

P.S. Go ahead and look up the movie release dates. I dare you. :)
