Artiplier likes the Host. He is someone who lost his sight, something essential to his craft, but who can still can do what he loves, even better than before. And he knows what happened. How the Host was promised power and life from Dark in exchange for his eyes. Still, Artie thinks, Host has wonderful new powers and manages despite his blindness, and he can’t help but admire the opportunity the Author was given. Besides, while Host has to deal with Dark lurking over his shoulder, he doesn’t have to deal with a demon in his head.
Stephen King once wrote that “Nightmares exist outside of logic, and there’s little fun to be had in explanations; they’re antithetical to the poetry of fear.” In a horror story, the victim keeps asking “Why?” But there can be no explanation, and there shouldn’t be one. The unanswered mystery is what stays with us the longest, and it’s what we’ll remember in the end. My name is Alan Wake. I’m a writer.
