“Stories do not explain. They seem to, but all they provide is a starting point. A story never ends at the end. There is always an after. And even within itself, even by saying that this version is the right one, it suggests other versions, versions that exist in parallel. No, a story is not an explanation, it is a net, a net through which the truth flows. The net catches some of the truth, but not all, never all, only enough so that we can live with the extraordinary without it killing us.” ~ page 142 of The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness
