The more I develop ideas for this noir story (…which really needs a name), the more Crane insists on being quietly but profoundly depressed.

I’m not yet sure how much of that is due to personal tragedy, a side-effect of his profession and extended exposure to evil, or a dreary opinion of humanity as a whole.
someday i’d like to break into jj abram’s house and beat him over the head with a box. then when he asks me who i am and why i’m doing this, i’ll tell him it’s a fucking mystery and then beat him over the head again for the next two years or so
