How I hesitated, now I wonder why…
So yeah this is really terrible and I still completely hate it but if I don’t man up and post it now I never will.
Partially inspired by a conversation I had aaaaaages ago with TehKittyKat, to give credit where credit is due. Can be read as the first part of a trilogy along with False Light and The Shape of Things to Come, but it stands perfectly well on its own.
Quote at the beginning of the fic is from The Last Unicorn, by Peter S. Beagle, lyrics are from “Brand New Day” by Joss Whedon and Neil Patrick Harris.
This appeared as a moral dilemma
‘Cause at first, it was weird
Though I swore to eliminate
The worst of the plague that devoured humanity
It’s true: I was vague on the “how”
So how can it be that you
Have shown me the light?
