FB: Best is feeling a little overwhelmed by receiving this gift after never getting a gift for anyone else ever in his whole life, so Frigg does her best to cancel the gift out by giving him the anti-gift of vicious mockery, reducing his feelings of obligation to do something in return! And doesn’t that make Frigg the most considerate Axemas giver of all?

Byron has never made a big deal out of Best’s focus on appearances, exactly, although that is kind of an undercurrent of their conflict. Byron sees himself as a pro ax-swinger, a simple get-it-done guy, in contrast to Best’s flashiness and “legend.”

But sometimes you have to respect, even assume, other people’s values to get them the best gift you can.
