Every time a friend succeeds...

Postby Fox Saint-Just » 2016-01-07, 20:51

... I die a little.

Let's be honest, Gore Vidal was quite right about it. :mrgreen:

Updating Silvish. Hmm, I can't decide whether to put "succeed" in the indicative or subjunctive. "When" triggers the subjunctive, so it wouldn't be unexpected for "every time" to as well. Luckily, the indicative and subjunctive of reusî "succeed" are identical in this case, so I don't need to make a decision yet. :)

Every time a friend succeeds, I die a little.

* N = "noble" or human-associated gender
