Context: I was waiting for a movie to start, and all the previews were for action movies. This conversation happened.
the Madman: Why would anyone want to live in an action movie?
Varian: I have no idea. I mean, I joke that my life is a fanfic, but now we’re at the Angsty Plot Twists section of it, combined with a nice helping of the The Hero’s Past is Back to Haunt Him trope.
the Madman: And it sucks.
Varian: Yes, it does.
