Anything interrupting Lexx’s plans are unwanted intrusions, until they become wanted intrusions.  Right now, he doesn’t have time to think about anything he doesn’t actually WANT to think about.   He’ll deal with this later and I will get that text going by next week, I hope, barring any disasters.

Also, something people forget but need to remember:  Lexx has been confirmed to be on the autism spectrum, unintentionally.  As someone with an autistic child, it takes longer to correct certain behaviors and a lot of patience.  It doesn’t matter how much they want to break out of it, it’s a script.  Altering it takes time.  Lexx’s usual responses to frustrations are anger and action to remove the frustration.  It’s what the ADC conditioned him to do.   It may never be removed, because above the anger, he has more control now.  He will lash out at things, but not at living things.  That just took one trigger that was strong enough to stop it in the future along with the removal of the bad code.

As for relationships, oh, it’s not an ideal one by any means and Chel realizes that, which is leading up to the next few weeks sequences.  She also knows she can’t ‘fix’ him.  That’s going to take a lot of other people actually caring for Lexx’s well being and he has them lined up and is now open to all of them.  It’s difficult to get other people to realize that the kid throwing a tantrum is not doing it because they are spoiled little brats, but because their brain just ‘breaks’ and has for so long they go onto an uncontrollable, no choice autopilot until it’s over.  It’s getting to them BEFORE the meltdown and stopping it while they have control and helping them realize that they have that control to stop it that over time will stop it from happening.

He has the will to correct his behavior and the support system that he needs.  Now he just needs time.  Unfortunately more time than he has.
