I know. It’s all wrong. By rights we shouldn’t even be here. But we are. It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it’s only a passing thing, this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories that stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going. Because they were holding on to something.
One of my favourite speeches in the entire trilogy.

“All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wonder are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.”
I’m in the middle of an interrogation, this moron is giving me everything.
A portrait of the enigmatic Haytham.
“Our goal was to create ‘a dark James Bond’,” says Alex Hutchinson. “Someone who was very accomplished, with a quick wit, who had a much darker edge than you might expect. A man capable of great violence but still driven by the desire to do what he believes is right.”
[From: The Art of Assassin’s Creed III, page 46.]
literally one of the only things that Alex has said in a while that doesn’t piss me off.
‘Dark James Bond”
If she needs a James Bond girl he just needs to ask, you know #justsaying
