Alan left partly because his hero complex made him feel guilty that he couldn't "fix" May?
…asdfdfgh that's adorable. :O
Sad is happy for deep people.
Dammit I love this fic. It's things like Alan's departure that make me feel very enamoured with it but also sad, because May and Alan's relationship was so funny :P.
Yeah, I enjoyed Alan's departure. Not because I dislike him, but because it seemed so natural.
And he thinks that he'll feel better away from May. I'm guessing… Nope. He'll feel more guilty, especially if something else happens. I've known a few people with a pseudo-hero complex, and I know that leaving wouldn't have worked for them. They would have left, but then felt guilty about leaving, but not be able to get back. :)
While avoiding rampant speculation, I think that this opens up a lot of possibilities.
