Favourite quote from a fan-fiction
“There’s [sic] isn’t really any such thing as heroes and villains, Sirius. Good and evil don’t exist. Very few people get into this stuff because they’re legitimately evil. People have goals and motives and when someone is willing to fight for their ideals it’s because they believe in what they’re fighting for. They believe that they are the good guys. Everyone believes that they’re the ones in the right and the people fighting against them are the ones who are wrong. It’s all about perspective in the end. History is written by the victors, which is why the history books are always able to peg one side as evil while the other side – the winning side – were the heroes and saviors.
Everyone has goals and objectives that they believe in and are willing to fight for, and no one fights with the goal of destroying the world unless they’re an insane sociopath or something…”
