The characters never actually spoke to each other (and were maybe in the same scene… once?), but I was convinced it’d be a really interesting dynamic.

“Maybe the only difference between a monster and a hero was the colour of a soldier's uniform”
Allison Saft, Down Comes the Night
tags: life, war

“Sparked in desperation and kept alive, secret and stifled. It was a hungry, selfish kind of love, never fully satisfied. A love that kept score. Something that flared painfully now and again, like a bone that had never set quite right.”
Allison Saft, Down Comes the Night

“You are not weak for grieving. For feeling anything.”
Allison Saft, Down Comes the Night
