    i suppose it could be. I wouldn't get too nervous, as long as you stick to timings and that it should be ok.
    speaking of timings, any chance you could remind me of what they are??

    ohh ok now i understand so we could say something like this could be countered by slim being a devious character underneath him being good ?

    if asked a question about loneliness or slim being "godlike" it could be possible to speculate...?

    mad plot twist.. i may sound stupid for thinking this..
    SLIM KNOWS HOW STRONG LENNIE IS, HE KNOWS LENNIE LIKES SOFT THINGS, SLIM IS LONELY.. SLIM KNOWS CURLEYS WIFE HAS SOFT HAIR,, SLLIM KNOWS LENNIE IS ON HIS OWN.. SLIM TELLS CURLEYS WIFE TO GO IN..SLIM KNOWS LENNIE COULD KILL CURLEYS WIFE.. CURLEYS WIFE LETS LENNIE TOUCH HER HAIR..CURLEYS WIFE DIES...SLIM TELLS GEOGRE TO KILL LENNIE .. SLIM HAS GEORGE ALL FOR HIMSELF (SPECULATION)
    I basically wrote something like this during mocks and my teacher said i was going too deep

    how is this supposed to help for the exam
    You can use it as an alternative view point, though I'd mention the hints of darkness of Slim's character rather than the conspiracy theory .

    I read this earlier.
    I also wrote an extract regarding this idea earlier linked to a different character, including Slim..

    This

    'Slim neither encouraged nor discouraged him. He just sat back quiet and receptive.' - This bit is followed by George opening up to Slim greatly. So Slim knows how to get information off people with arguably the most persuasive technique: silence. People try to fill silence as it's awkward to just stop a conversation midway and they're more likely to open up.

    '"What'd he do in Weed?" Slim asked calmly. "What'd he do in Weed?" Slim asked again.' - Shows persistence. Slim won't stop when a subject intrigues him and will persist until he gets what he wants.

    "I wisht somebody ... old an' a crippple." (in reference to Candy's dog) - Insensitivity towards Candy. Slim knows Candy is 'old an' a cripple' and may be planting suicidal thoughts in Candy's mind.

    "Me an' you'll go in an' get a drink." - He says this right after the death of Lennie. Perhaps he's capitalising on the moment and trying to get through to George and seal their friendship at George's most vulnerable?

    "You hadda George. I swear you hadda. Come on with me." - This quote wouldn't be so bad if he hadn't said 'Come on with me'. He consoles George after Lennie's death and tells George to 'move on' with him. Since George is in a very vulnerable state, he's more susceptible to suggestions.
