Ahhh! I've been reading your tags on Tech specific posts and I agree!
He is the emotional rock and anchor for the boys and, as much as it would hurt, I do want to see him break. That would be such a sharp contrast to everything we have seen from him, and I want to know how his brothers would react to their most emotionally reserved (distant?) brother.
And I fully agree with your idea of him being an insomniac. I've headcanoned that his brain is almost too active for his own good, and it won't rest - so sleep is either fleeting or near impossible for Tech.
And I FULLY agree with the desire to see Wrecker reconcile with his brothers over what happened in Battle Scars. He choked Tech, and almost killed Hunter, but we only see him apologize to Omega? I was a little frustrated that we didn't see him get to talk to his brothers about that situation, as the brothers relationship is the most important part of the show to me. I don't know but... ah, I think I'm frustrated that we only really got to see how Omega reacted to that whole situation?
The episode focused on her, when I was desperate to see how Tech would respond to his big brother choking him - especially since I see Tech as almost unable to process one of his brothers hurting him? And to see how Hunter was feeling after Wrecker almost killed him, but ugh, that's :/
Anyways, just wanted to say that I love seeing your tags about Tech!
honestly i think at this point its a necessity for Tech to finally just. break, and i just hope its in this overly exaggerated way! i want there to be emphasis that Tech has never reached this point before, he has always been able to keep himself under control no matter how exhausted or stressed hes been before. I want the emotional breakdown to crash through him so hard and fast that it leaves him so devastatingly exhausted that he cant even stand on his own and Hunter and Wrecker have to run to catch him from falling. I want Tech's breaking to break them. and really i think more than anything i want Tech's final breaking point to be just. something, ANYTHING relating to Crosshair.
i completely understand why they would keep all the focus on Omega, and show the importance of Wrecker apologizing to her and explaining that he tried. she's not a soldier, this was never the life that she was meant for. she was never trained for this and is so unaccustomed to the terror and the violence that could possibly follow. though she was raised around soldiers, she was kept pretty sheltered, i think. whereas, this is the life that the batch is used to, what they were born for and trained for. so i get the distinction and the importance of Wrecker apologizing to her
but still the FRUSTRATION of not getting the same with Hunter and Tech bc, like you said, these are his brothers, these are two people who he was raised with, trained with, theyve been through everything together. they are his team, his family. Wrecker would never hurt them, and they would never in their life think that Wrecker could hurt them, but now its happened! even if it was bc of the inhibitor chip a line has still been crossed. even if it wasnt Wrecker's fault, there still had to have been a shift in trust and awareness on Hunter and Tech's side of things
and that needs to be addressed! it needs to be rectified! there needs to be a clear understanding of "you didn't mean to do this, and i don't blame you, but it still happened and we still need to work through the aftermath. things have changed, but we can get past it and come out on top" and frankly if i am not given this then i will have to do it my damn self!!

I avoid talking about Project AHO whenever i can, my problem with it is the whole Slavery thing, the mod tries to make you sympathize with the slavers, like bro, just no.
(also pretty sure slavery was abolished by the 4th era in morrowind)
That’s my thoughts exactly!
Not only sympathize with slavers (which, sure, an asshole character could do) but sympathize with the people who enslaved YOU (which, I don’t think even the most evil or angelic DBs can get behind that logic.)
And there’s like. No choice! You either go along with them or you leave and stop playing the mod. I guess you could kill them all, but that’s playing against the mod and doesn’t offer anything interesting.
It’s a passable for a Skyrim mod, with honestly gorgeous scenery, for sure, but so freaking overhyped as a quest. It has flaws, which personally ruin immersion and just generally irritate me.
(Slavery was super abolished)

I've been drowning in the drugs, trying to bury everything about myself you touched, and I still dream of you.
I drink until standing is a chore and my head clouds over, but still you find me in the fog, unfailingly, every time.
I fuck to my heart's content, I try to burn away the echoes of your hands, and still the thought of you chases each encounter.
I've tried the lightheaedness of nicotine, and your voice still tries to ground me with concern for my health.
How is it you see fit to chase me through a purple haze? Over the rivers of wine and dark pools of Jameson? Out a stranger's front door and into the gray of the morning after? Passed the suffocation of cigarettes?
Why does my mind let you haunt me?
