Oh, and yes Karma knows and is fully supportive, to the point he has long before this offered the services of building stoic a place here. And has mentioned that he'd be more than happy to 'bring home' whomever I need to feel whole if the situation arises.
I think Karma in our discussions of the matter actually finds it honorable and quite strong to feel as I do, and that for some reason (which I still have problems fathoming- I mean? It takes a different sort of man to deal with the likes of me-lol) Proud, that I have acknowledged these feelings to myself and told him about it. Karma also thinks that telling Stoic would be the correct choice and thinks it will go well.
