wesavedeachother: ([Hero] Did I Save The World?)
There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root. - David Thoreau

Linderman was the bad guy...he was the villain in this story, but he wasn’t the man to stop. Horn Rimmed Glasses...Noah Bennet, Claire’s adopted father? He was a pawn in a larger game, a villain that had seen the error of his ways...but he wasn’t the man to stop.

Everyone was chasing the shadows...but I was the darkness. And I was the only one who saw it.

I spent the better part of five weeks trying to figure it all out, trying to stop what I knew was coming, and all around me there were others that had it pegged all wrong. They didn’t understand the evil things can come from out of the blue, without rhyme, reason, or even malicious intent. They looked to the bad guys for the bad things.

All it really ended up being was me...this big accident waiting to happen. And I was careful, I tried...I tried to learn, tried to get away before I could hurt anyone...

Until I realized, all things considered, if it hadn’t been me? It probably *would* have been Ted or Sylar. My presence at least gave New York a fighting chance. Not much, but it was something...and now I know that I had to be there so Hiro could save not just New York...but all of us. Without him, Sylar would have continued hunting the rest of us...he would have become more than a killer, he would have become a plague.

Trust me, I know...for a few horrific moments, I *was* a plague...a plague just waiting to be set free.

Nathan saved me from that, though...I know he was going to go along with it, let me explode to create this new utopia through fear, but he couldn’t do it. He’s more like me than he ever wanted to admit because he cares as much as I do. The faces of the innocent that were going to die...I know he could see them. I knew they were calling out to him.

So in the end, everyone who was fighting those smaller battles against the shades of Armageddon...they all came together in Kirby Plaza that night to kill that final branch before Nathan came in to help me cut away that final root.

I saved the cheerleader...and together, we saved the world.
