In the book the hatchet the main character is Brian Robeson He plays the role of a boy who is in a plane and it was only Brian and the Pilot. They are people who want to go on a trip and they are important because Brian is the one who is going to the wild to survive. The Pilot is one of roles who are important because he gave Brian a short lesson on how to drive the plane.Brian is a boy who is quiet and the same time I can see him nervous because he did not talk too much with the pilot. Meanwhile the Pilot feels very safe, nice, and confident because he let Brian drive the plane a little so he can know the basics. Throughout the story i would say he changed a little bit because the way he was acting in the wild trying to survive he was feeling confident. The Pilot changed because he became quiet after what happened to him and stopped. The two textual evidence I can find are “ Now you can turn. Bring her back to the left a little.” Brian turned the wheel let pushed on the left pedal, and the plane came back around “It’s easy.” He smiled “ At least this part.” (Paragraph 2, Page 5). When he saw Brian look at him, the pilot seemed to open up a bit and he smiled. “Ever fly in the Copilots seat before?” He leaned over and lifted the headset off his right ear and put it on his temple, yelling to overcome the sound of the engine. (Paragraph 8, Page 3).

The problem in the book the hatchet was very serious because it all started when the pilot let Brian ride the plane a little bit so he can know the basics of how to fly a plane. Brian knew, Brian knew the pilot was having a heart attack because Brian observed the pilot and in his mind he observed the pilot. The pilot’s mouth went rigid he swore and jerked a short series of slams into the seat holding his shoulder now. Swore and hissed , “Chest! Oh God, my chest is coming apart. Brian knew now. This is a conflict because the pilot only showed Brian the controls of the plane. This problem affects the pilot and Brian because the pilot might lose his life and Brian is panicking and doesn’t know what to do. Brian reacts to the conflict like he is just standing there looking not speaking, not helping, and not moving. Brian takes off the pilot’s headphones and tries to make a conversation with other people on planes but the main problem is him not knowing the plane number, not knowing where is, and his connection cutting off when he speaks with other people on the plane. This problem is external because this problem goes to many people like Brian, pilot and many other people. This problem is situational because It’s Brian’s and piot’s conflict. But when the plane might crash that can be value getting destroyed. (Paragraph 6),” Brian knew, Brian knew the pilot was having a heart attack because Brian observed the pilot and in his mind he observed the pilot. The pilot’s mouth went rigid he swore and jerked a short series of slams into the seat holding his shoulder now. Swore and hissed , “Chest! Oh God, my chest is coming apart.” (10). (Paragraph 10), “The Pilot was having a heart attack and even as the knowledge came to Brian he saw the pilot slam into the seat one more time, one more awful time he slammed back into the seat and his right leg jerked, pulling the plane to the side in a sudden twist and his head fell forward and spit came. Spit came from the corners of his mouth and his legs contracted up, up into the seat, and his eyes rolled back in head until there was only white.” (11).

The most important scene is how Brian was with the pilot and the pilot had a heart attack and Brian was in trouble because he did not even know how to fly a pilot which is bad news for him and also the pilot. This scene is important because this is where the conflict really strats. It starts with Brian having no experience with planes and makes Brian face death of the plane running out of fuel or him landing in an unstable place. It shows a liitle bit of characteristics about Brian because he decided to cry because he did not know what to do when he was frutrated and helpless. Brian starts to be depressed and starts to cry because he thinks he has no hope and he can have no help and he is the only person who has contact with. The structure is the action because it is one of the scenes where it talks a lot about drama. The textual evidence I found was "Help! Somebody help Me! I'm in this plane and don't know... don't know... don't know..." This means that Brian does not know what he is doing and needs help.
I think he would stop crying and find a way to get out of the mess he is going through.

One Icon that flows around the story the "Hatchet" is overtime because when Brian and the pilot were relaxed and doing their thing and there was a problem when the pilot had a heart attack. Then over time Brian felt alone after 10 minutes he felt very scared, frsutrated, and serious. But in the beggining of the story he was very shy, and naive but at the same time very calm, but right after the accident happened Brian became very scared and lonely. The textual evidence I got was "Help! Somebody help Me! I'm in this plane and don't know... don't know... don't know..." this means that Brian is scared and does not know what to do. Another piece of evidence is "Brian shook his head, I'd better not he said". This means he does not want to do anything and he just wants to go with his parents or does not want to ride the plane.

Throughout the whole story the Hatchet one imperative or complexity icon is ethics. I chose Ethics because during the story their are many positive events and many negative effects. First of all im going to talk about the negative effects, the first negative effect comes from this quote “Chest! Oh God, my chest is coming apart.” This means that the pilot or the operator is going to have a heart attack and could not be repaired because Brian does not know what to do and also the pilot is going to die. A positive effect in the story the hatchet was brian getting to know the pilot and having some tips on how the plane worked and later on it would be a good thing because since the pilot had a heart attack and could not do anything Brian could use the tips that the pilot gave him. The textual evidence I found is "Brian turned the wheel let pushed on the left pedal, and the plane came back around “It’s easy.” He smiled “ At least this part.”

The main characters of the story are two boys named Nick and Danny. Then the other main character is also his dad. To describe Nick he is very curious, and adventurous. Danny is somewhat a toddler and also he is very gullible. In matter of fact his dad is very strict, and also demandable. Nick changed throughout the story in the beginning because he did not want to do anything after tragic accident happened, but he went to his attic and he became very curious when he opened the attic door, which makes Nick dynamic. Then Danny and Nick’s dad stayed the same throughout the story, so they are static. Here are two quotes from the story that give a little bit more information about the characters. Nick was hit by a flying toaster. Or, to be precise, a falling toaster.” That means that Nick was hit by a “toaster” so in that case Nick was really worrying about his surrounding but he was hit in the head with a “falling toaster”. A second piece of evidence is “Danny his younger brother, ran into the hallway and promptly shouted, “Dad! Nick got killed by the attic!”. That means how Danny is very gullible and does not know how to explain many things in a proper way.

One gate imperative that goes with the story “Tesla’s attic” is going to be overtime. Here are three reasons on why the gate imperative should be overtime. First of all one reason why the gate imperative is how Nick was just stubborn at the beginning in the story and later on in the story he began to be more interactive and adventurous. Then another character that changed in the story is Danny. The boy named Danny changed a lot through the story because in the begging in the story he was very gullible and in the last parts of the story he began to become more mojour and more reliable and also his dad did not change much because in the beggining of the story he was very strict and paranoid, then after a while he did not really change much he was staying the same, talking the same to NIck and Danny. That is why overtime is a good gate imperative for the story “Tesla’s Attic”.
