I wish things could be simple.
bitterguardian: (glasses shadows)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
I have never heard anyone say they wished things were more complicated.
bitterguardian: (little smile)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 03:56 am (UTC)(link)
I'm afraid that may simply be human nature, my dear.
bitterguardian: (hunh)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 04:02 am (UTC)(link)
Well, perhaps beyond human. I wasn't trying to be ethnocentric.
bitterguardian: (glasses smirky)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 04:13 am (UTC)(link)
...One or two, depending on your definition of humanity.
bitterguardian: (unsure)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 01:15 pm (UTC)(link)
I think when most people talk about humanity, what they mean has less to do with blood, and more to do with a manner of thinking, a set of perspectives...
bitterguardian: (amused)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 03:26 pm (UTC)(link)
[He chuckles softly.] Isn't that rather a matter of opinion? No, I suppose I'm not. But I am only human.
bitterguardian: (little smile)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 03:29 pm (UTC)(link)
Both, I hope. My perspective may... be a little different than most, but I still value what I would call humanity.
bitterguardian: (glasses shadows)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 03:33 pm (UTC)(link)
I've... encountered a few rare individuals, even those human by birth, who I could say have nonetheless lost touch with their humanity. If they were born human, but have willfully stripped themselves of all human concerns for fellow beings, even those instincts of empathy that allow us to relate to one another, are they human, still?
bitterguardian: (hunh)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 03:45 pm (UTC)(link)
Mm. Well I agree with you, there. Humanity is a thing which can be lost.

But we've strayed. What is it that's gotten so complicated, to trouble you?
bitterguardian: (disgust)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 04:10 pm (UTC)(link)
[He grimaces in sympathy.] That... does sound complicated. Old curses are tricky things to unravel.
bitterguardian: (little smile)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 04:18 pm (UTC)(link)
Begging your pardon, but I wouldn't be in a hurry to unravel that one.
bitterguardian: (unsure)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 04:21 pm (UTC)(link)
...Ah. [He hesitates, unsure if he should offer assistance or not. On the one hand, he doesn't need any more complications in his own life, on the other hand... *sigh*]

Would there... be anything I could do to help?
bitterguardian: (little smile)

[personal profile] bitterguardian 2014-11-25 05:09 pm (UTC)(link)
[He's on his feet today, leaning just slightly on a cane, and looming a little, but he can't help that. He has shown a reasonable amount of knowledge of esoteric things, in their last conversation, and his smile is small, but genuine.]

My life is perhaps simpler than it should be, these days. I should make myself more useful.
