Soseki generally uses references to the theme of the expectation of sharing time and space to highlight how a number individuals in differing situation dealt with dilemmas, which represented the darkness in their lives. These two men are the closest thing to having a mentor and mentee bond also as an older brother but this is slightly strained by Sensei’s reserve. Sensei was not very fond of sharing any past experiences that have impacted him in his past, since they truly struck him negatively. Thus, it is not only pertaining to his reserve that hinders their friendship, it is the fact that the men feel there are two sides to a person rather than bonding together to work towards a common goal. In order to see this contrast between the expectation of sharing time and space, Soseki again uses the light and darkness motif when the narrator, says, “I have come to doubt everybody… I did not want to doubt you.” (p 53).

It 's evident when they do interact with others that they really don 't expect it to go well, and they will occasionally simply retreat when things get to be too much for them. Napstablook is quick to point out their own awkwardness; on multiple separate occasions they say a few lines and then apologize for rambling. They express honest surprise if the player character decides to visit them at home (after they gave an extremely hesitant invitation... if you want... but no pressure) and seem a little unsure how to go about having a guest -- but they do their best to roll with it anyway and it 's a pretty chill time. On the other hand, if you attack them at the start of the game, they will eventually
Montag’s defensive, almost automatic, responses are characteristic of a man who voices only what he thinks he is supposed to feel, not what he truly feels. Montag quickly begins to understand how ignorant he has been of his own thoughts and desires. He realizes that he did not become a fireman out of personal desire, but rather he “ran after” his father and grandfather, both fireman, “in [his] sleep” (Bradbury 51). “In his sleep” suggests that there was no conscious thought involved when he pursued his career, as if the decision was made by his body without his consent. Montag’s realization that he chose his path out of obligation, rather than personal desire, helps him come to the realization that his ignorance regarding his own thoughts and feelings caused his
