I wrote too true before I knew what I wrought.

Faustus: Stay, Mephistopheles, and tell me, what good will
my soul do thy lord?

Mephistopheles: Enlarge his kingdom.

Faustus: Is that the reason he tempts us thus?

Mephistopheles: Solamen miseris socios habuisse doloris.
(It is a comfort to the wretched to have companions in misery)
~ Dr. Faustus

It was sad when he was all I had left. Now he's gone, too. We're all stories, legends, and we choose or remake them as we go...

But all but she are gone, now, and the new ones have come forward, and are looking to me.

...I'm really not sure what to do with them.
