Carmilla nods sagely. "You may have a point... but I'm not very good at dealing with confrontation..."

"...as you probably surmised..."

"Okay, uh... Maybe you're gonna need more than just arguments to deal with her." Hubert astutely deduced.

"I... I cowered in fear and screamed, and she dropped... the knife."

"... She what?" Hubert asked. "Sh- you mean- how are you still alive...?"

Carmilla hums in response. "Um... Zarmilla..."

"Did corner me in the garden and, well... pull a knife out. On me."

"And there you go. Claim, reason, support. You just got a crash course in basic argumentation." Hubert nodded, cracking a small smile. "You don't have to believe in yourself all the time. If you make a strong argument, you can lean on that instead. Really helps when people try to push you around."

"... Of course, they can still deck you even if you make a good argument, but I figure most people here are more civilized than that."

"Well... I have my testimony against hers." Carmilla bites the inside of her cheek.

"She claims to be the 'real' Carmilla, with no proof, yet I can recount all the facts of my entire life."

"Yeah, exactly. 'Zarmilla is an imposter, because I am Carmilla Hext'." he continued. "Next is the most important part: support. Support can be evidence, testimony, logic, etc. It just has to prove your reason. Don't you have something like that?"

"Be... because I am Carmilla Hext." Carmilla puts emphasis on the 'I', "and she... is an obvious fake."

Hubert nodded. "Yeah. Humor me for a moment. In your case, your claim is 'Zarmilla is an imposter'. After that, you define a reason. Try answering this: Why do you think Zarmilla is the imposter?"

Carmilla raises her brow after a moment, when she finally parses what Hubert just said.

"...do... do you mean like, writing an essay...?"

Hubert stayed silent for a minute.

Eventually though, he said "... Step one is defining your claim." with not much context to it.

Carmilla's expression darkens immediately at the mention of Zarmilla.

"I...have tried, on the few times she's spoken to me..." Instead of continuing, Carmilla just lets out a long sigh into her mug of lukewarm, unsweetened tea.

"Well, it's just a thing I had to break out of if I wanted to do my job." he explained. "Though it wasn't really one to one with you..."

"... Nevermind that. Not asserting yourself has kinda bitten you already, hasn't it? Now you have that imposter walking around. It'd really help if you could argue back to her, y'know?"

Carmilla lets out a tiny gasp when Hubert says the word 'friend'.

"Wait... are you saying you used to... be like me? But you seem to be so confident and sure of yourself."

"It's fine." he sighed. "I guess I did send your friend to jail. But I'm serious here, if you let people walk all over you, they're never gonna stop. Speaking from personal experience..."
