    My nemesis spurs me forward, induces me to throw pity parties where myself, as host, is the only attendee, and now I must provide a proper burial. Alas! Poor, poor Cedric!

    And I need you to write another novel. I wanted to tell you that a few days ago after I finished reading Flesh and Blood for the third time. And then immediately started in again on the fourth. I couldn’t find out how to tell you, and then my friend told me about six word stories. So I hope somebody tells you now: please, write another novel.

    I fell in love with my nemesis once…never experienced such disgust and infatuation really.

    Brilliant. Once you have achieved the obsession of revenge or simple hatred…nothing is left.

    This is great. It shows just how much people can get wrapped up in hate and vengeance. In the words of Eddie Izzard: You stand there with the hand over your heart “you and the Roman empire are the only one’s that’ve done that so be VERY careful.”

    Awesome. Reminds me of “Memento” (the film and short story) by the brothers Jonathan and Christopher Nolan. :)
