I remember having a long talk with The Crone about Hope being evil. It wasn’t in the fairy tales I had read. I wish I remembered better the distinctions we finally drew and the other word we came up with, but we agreed that there were times when Hope was a good thing and times when Hope was a bad thing, the fairy of mass executions and wasted lives when action might have turned things around. I suppose that it goes to show that a well-rounded diet is important and that living on Hope alone, like anything else, is bad.
