Sparks of Insanity

Haphazard Explorations & Experiments In Fiction

Notes & Commentary

Take a look at the following excerpt…

“All said and done, I don’t discriminate. I kill whoever the fuck I feel like.
Sometimes it takes time, planning, stalking.
Other times, it happens at the drop of a hat.
Plus, once I got a chance to look over her still-warm corpse, I noticed that bitch looked a lot like my ex; she got what was coming to her.”

Thesis + Antithesis = Dissonance

There’s dissonance in every different situation, set of options, desire, compulsion, and state of existence. The question is, what kind of choice do you make? I say it depends on what you want more, and on how far ahead your looking for motivation to make your decisions in the present. In essence, it boils down to desire.

Ties into No Reason, which is a short musing (possibly) from the guy that killed the hooker and her customer in Indiscriminate.

Instinct comes into play for the perpetrator, in deciding the side-street was a good enough place to act on his impulses. He trusts his gut, and he’s bold. Though he doesn’t want to get caught, he’s also not restricted by a fear of it. To him, it’s more important to act on his urge, and to figure out if he can get away with it and – if so – how best to go about it. It’s really as simple as that.

    Remember that luck, impulses, trusting your gut and even skill aren’t just the tools of a perpetrator. It’s what us survivors do to get away from those who would turn us into victims. So we all have it, the hunters and those who ruin their awful plans.

“And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”
~William Shakespeare
