@MasterLillyclaw One, perhaps even earlier than their deathbed, e.g. as soon as the passion cools off and more rational thoughts of the future take hold :P
Yeah, but that's an awkward conversation to have with someone who literally has your life in their hands.
@Axehand Small problem with Veronica de-swearing her "minions." At this point Veronica essentially has no power or tools at her disposal, and is only kept alive because there isn't a strong reason to kill her (or sentimental reasons). Even if she is completely delusional and believes that any day she will be released. There is almost no way she will give up the one remaining card she has unless she is released from prison, even if life is very uncomfortable. It would be like a prisoner giving up information that is the only reason his jailers are keeping him alive. If she loses her namesworn, she has no political future, and in her mind she probably thinks her life would be in jeopardy as well.
Everyone's gangsta until they're starving. The limiting factor is Sylvester's sentimentality, no more.
