I'm not sure which is more difficult. Trying to write conversation that comes across as entertaining, or trying to illustrate it. With action, it's easier to be interesting. Rocky and his tendency to veer violently from one topic to the next compound the matter. But he can't help it. That's just how his brain works...or doesn't work, depending on how you look at it.
Ah, well. Here's hoping it's not too incongruent to understand.
Rocky and Viktor.
