It's to make sure neither side wants to lynch me. I would guess that there are at least three scum in a game this size, meaning it's currently (at best for town) 3-3-1. Town doesn't want to lynch the independent on those numbers.
The complicating factor for me, and the reason I claimed, is if I become tim's lover and that lovers work the usual way (if one dies both dies). If scum thought I was town, then assuming tim is town, they'd kill tim and I'd die too. This way, they'd do better to kill off someone else tonight, then use the threat of killing tim to make me do what they want tomorrow. If they can get me on side, they're a majority.
Of course that all falls down if the scum team is only two instead of three, but only two scum in a game this large seems unlikely.
Also, unfortunately, I don't know the scum win condition - whether they need to eliminate all townies, or whether the game ends when it becomes inevitable. It's kind of important to me whether scum can win with tim alive or not. That's what's holding me back from accepting tim as lover, I need to weigh that up against the chances of bad things happening to me if I don't accept. If I do accept, then I can't really support town without scum killing tim, but it might be the case that scum can't win without tim being killed.
Any solutions you can think of to my problem will result in me supporting your faction in a kingmaker situation.
So you see my dilemma - but I think it's clear that neither side wants to lynch me/have me killed right now.
