Gotta say, this is fantastically written. I especially enjoy the perspective you’ve taken. He’s not evil– he’s just got a particular perspective that he’s been thrust into. It really highlights moral relativism and is such a fantastic take on anti-heroism!!! Can’t wait for the next chapter, whenever it comes This is great stuff, I love that it’s not clear whether or not Artum has a choice in whether or not he is turning dark.

His friend was perfectly happy being a digger, the baker got a rolling pin, etc. Maybe the weapon inherently seeks out those who are quick to violence or are easily corrupted by power. In which case the question is whether or not the weapon itself is intrinsically evil (and thus just waits for someone to become its pawn) or is simply coded to seek out evil I Was Lightning Before Thunder Dragon Birthday Gift T-Shirt (in which case I suppose the fault lays on the wielder). Of course though, we only know that one of the wielders was evil, there is a small chance, a very small chance given the contents of this part, that it was actually a different personality trait entirely that the weapon connects to that they both shared
