“A story is not a machine that does what you tell it to. A story is a beast with a life of its own. You can create it, shape it, but as the story grows, it starts wanting things of its own. Change one thing, and you set off a chain reaction of events that spreads through the whole thing. The characters have to be true to themselves, the events need to follow a logic that fits the story. A single flaw and the magic is gone. The story dies.”
-Alan Wake
