“One should not seek ugliness in this world. There is no lack of it. You will find it soon enough, or it will find you.”
– Sigrud je Harkvaldsson in City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett
Although my life has been very different from that of a Dreyling operative and assassin, I agree. (For instance, I’ve never understood the appeal of vampire or horror genres, but to each their own.)
