I dunno if you are still active dear (if you are I hope this finds you well).
I've hit a snag in something that I am writing and this post helped a little but I'm still kind of unsure.
The protagonists are both enslaved together. One is a recent slave, the other nearly lifelong. Recent wants to escape. Lifelong has tried escaping before and lost someone he was close to in the process before being captured. Additionally, in the outside world, these two are on completely different sides.
My awesome logic says that they should work together but Lifelong is just not convinced.
I'm not sure how to convince him that Recent's crazy schemes will work with a little honing.
