Potato tomato. It danced around the actual word but "binding souls for eternity" is pretty final.>>88024219
I think that perspective is one of hindsight, where something happens and it's easy to say it was meant to happen because, well, it happened and it's impossible to disprove it wasn't meant to ahead of time. Fate as a concept of "stuff has happened and stuff will keep happening" doesn't bother me, but that's not how I use it or what I interpret fate as.
Fate is usually presented as predetermined, written ahead of time, which I think is bullshit. From any point in time there's infinite ways for things to play out from that point. You select one, and you keep selecting one over and over, and I prefer it that way even if there's no way to have any idea where it's going. It's the idea of the story being actively written rather than pre-written and just playing itself out. I put Greek fate in the same category as time travel paradoxes.
