„I would call it delicate, but it‘s the delicacy of a very still lake at night, with ripples only barely audible along the shore, and there‘s no light so you can‘t completely differentiate the horizon and the water. And there‘s an ancient myth monster that sleeps in the lake. (...)" - Andrew Choate
