Beyond the Stars
Durzo Blint (Shadow)
"Assassination is an Art and I am an acomplished Artist"
Do you know what punishments I’ve endured for my crimes, my sins? None.
I am proof of the absurdity of man’s most treasured abstractions. A just universe wouldn’t tolerate my existence…
I don’t ask anyone to like reality, I only ask that they be strong enough to face it. There is nothing beyond this. There is only the perfection we attain by becoming weapons, as strong and merciless as the sword.
There is, essential, nothing good in living. Life is nothing in itself. It’s a place marker that proves who’s winning, and we are the winners. We are always the winners. There is nothing but winning. Even winning means nothing. We win because it’s an insult the losers.
The ends doesn’t justify the means. The means doesn’t justify the ends. There is no one to justify to. There is no justification. There is no Justice… There’s Just Us.
