WE'LL TURN IT ALL AROUND
'cause it's not too late it's never too late



I'VE DRAWN REGRET FROM THE TRUTH OF A THOUSAND LIES
so let mercy come and wash away what i've done, i face myself, i'm forgiving what i've done



YESTERDAY I DIED, TOMORROW'S BLEEDING
i've lost who i am and i can't understand why my heart is so broken



IT'S NOT TOO LATE, IT'S NEVER TOO LATE

Spoiler:  some good quotes mmm • show
Euripides said, “When a good man is hurt, all who would be called good must suffer with him.”

Confucius once said, “Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”

Gandhi said, “I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary.  The evil it does is permanent.”

Philosopher Kahlil Gibran wrote “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.”

Plato wrote “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

Dale Turner mused “Some of the best lessons are learned from past mistakes.  The error of the past is the wisdom of the future.”

“There is not a righteous man on earth who does what is right and never sins.”  Ecclesiastes 7:20

Robert Kennedy once said “Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom, not a guide by which to live.”

“Nothing is permanent in this wicked world— not even our troubles.” Charles Chaplin.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face; You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Dostoyevsky once said, “Nothing is easier than denouncing the evildoer. Nothing more difficult than understanding him.”

“The most authentic thing about us is our capacity to create, to overcome, to endure, to transform, to love, and to be greater than our suffering.” – Ben Okri.

“We cross our bridges when we come to them and burn them behind us, with nothing to show for our progress except a memory of the smell of smoke, and a presumption that once our eyes watered.” – Tom Stoppard.

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.” – Anatole France.

"Never think that war, no matter how necessary, nor how justified, is not a crime." – Ernest Hemingway.

Wendell Berry said, “The past is our definition.  We may strive with good reason to escape it, or to escape what is bad in it.  But we will escape it only by adding something better to it.”

“There is no refuge from memory and remorse in this world.  The spirits of our foolish deeds haunt us, with or without repentance.” Gilbert Parker.


Spoiler: redemption quotes mmm • show
"Redemption can be found in hell itself if that's where you happen to be." LIN JENSEN

"Redemption is something you have to fight for in a very personal, down-dirty way. Some of our characters lose that, some stray from that, and some regain it." JOSS WHEDON

"Understanding and tenderness would arise among us no matter how bad things got, and we found redemption in the very places we hurt most." LIN JENSEN

"The recognition of pain and fear in others give rise in us to pity, and in our pity is our humanity, our redemption." DEAN KOONTZ

"True redemption is seized when you accept the future consequences for your past mistakes." EDUARDO MACEDO

"It's not too late, it's never too late." THREE DAYS GRACE

Planned Injuries for Sheogorath.

Left Leg: Deep wolf bite, teeth sliced through flesh and muscle to pierce bone. The back and forth shaking of the wolf's head causes extensive damage that leaves Sheogorath with a permanent limp and generalized weakness in the limb for the rest of his life. The initial healing of the wound could take a month, but the weakness will never go away.

Right Leg: While falling down the cliff, Sheogorath will strike his leg on the rocks, fracturing the bone below the knee. Recovery time is two months, but he may begin walking on it again, with assistance, after about one month. The leg will heal fully given time.

Right Ribcage: Cracked ribs and intense bruising that make breathing sharp and difficult. Pain will settle and allow for better breathing after about a week, and the injury will heal fully after about a month.

Skull: Slamming into the rocks, the head will sustain significant injury, resulting in unconsciousness, retrogade amnesia, intense pain, bleeding, and blurry vision. The blurred vision will settle after about a half hour. The bleeding can be managed with bandages.  Headaches will continue for weeks. The amnesia is permanent, and Sheogorath will never be able to retrieve the memories he has lost. Recovery time for complete healing of the skull is about a month and a half. 

Ultimately, Sheogorath will survive with intense care, either from being allowed to remain in Flintlock, or (after being cast out to die), being picked up by a friendly merchant couple that take him in and insure his safety and survival.

If Everyone Cared
From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you'd be mine
But here we are, we're here tonight

Singing amen, I, I'm alive
Singing amen, I, I'm alive

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we'd see the day when nobody died

And I'm singing

Amen I, amen I, I'm alive
Amen I, amen I, amen I, I'm alive

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We'll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

Second Chance
My eyes are open wide
By the way
I made it through the day
I watch the world outside
By the way
I'm leaving out today

I just saw Haley's comet, shooting
She waved, said, "Why are you always running in place"
Even the man in the moon disappeared
Somewhere in the stratosphere

Tell my mother, tell my father
I have done the best I can
To make them realize
This is my life
I hope they understand

I'm not angry, I'm just saying
Sometimes goodbye is a second chance

It's Not Too Late
This world will never be
What I expected
And if I don't belong
Who would have guessed it?
I will not leave alone
Everything that I own
To make you feel like it's not too late
It's never too late

Even if I say
It'll be alright.
Still I hear you say
You want to end your life.
Now and again we try
To just stay alive
Maybe we'll turn it around
'Cause it's not too late
It's never too late

No one will ever see
This side reflected
And if there's something wrong
Who would have guessed it?
And I have left alone
Everything that I own

May I? Stand Unshaken?
May I stand unshaken
Amid, amidst a crashing world

Did I hear a thunder?
Did I hear you break?
I can't quite remember
Just what guided me this way, oh

May I stand unshaken
Amid, amidst a crashing world

The pines, they often whisper
They whisper what no tongue can tell
He who drinks from the deep water
May he know the depths of the well

Spoiler: post injury information • show
-- Sheogorath suffers from Post Traumatic Brain Injuries. After sustaining a serious brain injury, Sheogorath developed Post Traumatic Retrograde Amnesia, which has caused him to forget parts, but not all, of his past. His memories are scattered, and looking through them is almost like putting together a puzzle. The trauma Sheogorath sustained also causes other issues.

Sheogorath struggles with present memory, easily forgetting small things, such as being asked to pass on information, or what he had to eat for breakfast that morning.
He suffers from chronic headaches that can swiftly turn into crippling migraines.
Since the injury, Sheogorath has developed speech problems. He tends to stutter a bit when pronouncing his Ds, Bs, or Cs, and sometimes fails to say what he's thinking properly. His speech can also come out unusually slowed and occasionally slurred.

Song -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpUP0jjicqY

Shadows all around you as you surface from the dark
Emerging from the gentle grip of night's unfolding arms
(Sheo rising from the darkness of his former self.)

Darkness, darkness everywhere, do you feel alone?
The subtle grace of gravity, the heavy weight of stone
(Sheogorath feeling alone.)

You don't see what you possess, a beauty calm and clear
It floods the sky and blurs the darkness like a chandelier
All the light that you possess is skewed by lakes and seas
The shattered surface, so imperfect, is all that you believe
(Sheo has light inside of him but nobody can see it, he feels doubtful.)

I will bring a mirror, so silver, so exact
So precise and so pristine, a perfect pane of glass
I will set the mirror up to face the blackened sky
You will see your beauty every morning that you rise
(Sheo slowly starts to see the beauty of the light he carries.)
