In the end, it will be every man for himself. It’s the unspoken truth of humanity that you crave subjugation. The bright lure of freedom diminishes your life’s joy in a mad scramble for power. For identity. You were made to be ruled. In the end, you will always kneel.
I was never the clown at school, I had some really rebellious classmates when I was at school. I’ve always been quite internally rebellious. I think everybody at school thought I was going to become a teacher; it was a massive misjudgment of my character. Which maybe reflects that I never played all my cards, I kept them close to my chest. I guess that is somehow like Loki in some way. There is a distance. He is watching everything all the time from a distance. I guess I’m a bit like that.
The days, they feel like they never move. It feels like everything we did, everything we were are gone. Somehow I’ve jumped back to the start, to the time when you were nowhere to be seen. My nightmare, they are worse than ever. There’s a darkness creeping up on me. Somewhere inside me, something is fighting against the darkness. A part of me will always fight. I will never forget, I can’t forget. “I was so alone, and I owe you so much”

I realised quite early on that, although I wasn’t trying to make a career speciality of it, I was playing slightly asexual, sociopathic intellectuals.
