Did you ever meet someone, someone it seemed you were destined to meet? You had a connection, you laughed together, cared about one another, but you also knew the whole time that it could never last; it just could never be more than what it was at that moment.
I didn’t used to believe in connections like that. And he, well, he totally misunderstood.
“Since I can’t love you, I love the world” was inspired by that. It’ll be in July’s Action/Adventure issue of Pilcrow and Dagger.
