My Endless List of Faves 6/∞ - Zoe Washburne from Firefly/Serenity

What does it say under bloodbath? We’re not in there– the book, I mean. We’re not generals or diplomats, we didn’t turn the tide of glory’s history or whatever that thing is supposed to spew. [Well you know what they say, history is programmed by the winners.] Nearly half a million people lay dead on that field at day’s end, about a third of them “winners”. Can you imagine that smell? Can you imagine piling up the bodies of soldiers – friends –  to build a wall cuz you got no cover?
