Original Work.

I hope I don't have to worry so much about people understanding it here...

My response would pretty much be this SMBC comic.

I know I'll discover after its all said and done I should've been a nun.

My first thought.

The suggestion in greedo-shoots-first-land is that han shoots because he sees greedo starting to shoot; i.e. the point of greedo's no return in shooting is timelike separated from han shooting.

In han shoots first but greedo also shoots follows the same separation; han is just faster to shoot from deciding to.

In han is the only person who shoots then this is obviously irrelevant.

Basically, the relevant events are going to be timelike separated.
my pronouns are they
