Being a degenerate is okay these days

The universe was taunting him. That was the only logical explanation for this. Hey Min-jae. Hey buddy. Who do you least want to see right now? Surprise!

Jae gritted his teeth. "Brendan." It was just a hiss. There was so much he wanted to say, to yell, and he had practically no voice. "Why are you still alive?"

Because that was the real question, wasn't it. Why was Brendan still alive when Asha wasn't? What gave him the fucking right to stand there and apologize, like Jae had ever given a single fuck about what he thought? Why should Alvaro and Alessio and Isabel still get to run around killing when Jae had lost so much? What the hell had any of them lost that compared?

Oh, they would get what they deserved, in death if not in life. Everyone would. He knew that. In a few days at the most, they all would get what was coming to them. Jae didn't know much about SOTF, aside from what everyone else knew, but he knew that the people like them didn't make it out. Isabel and Alessio and Alvaro and the fuckers behind it all would be insects, or starving ghosts, or would rot in hell for a trillion years to pay penance for what they had done.

Wasn't it a hell of a thing, waiting day by day to hear that someone had died like you would wait for your birthday, or Christmas?

"Well?" He snapped. Croaked. His grip tightened on the crossbow. He could shoot Brendan right now, and he wasn't sure he gave a fuck that Brendan's little girlfriend or whatever would probably put a bullet in his head for it.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
