2. Dandy: "I wish you could be inside my body for one minute to know what it feels like to be me! It's like when I had tuberculosis and you took me out to the Utah desert! And there was nothing but dry open space for hundreds of miles around us. That is what is inside of me. Those girls were a cool stream of glacier water. My heart bloomed as they nourished it, and now it's all gone. There is nothing left but the dust and the scorpions inside of me. I was never destined to feel love... the desert knows no mercy. Anything you try to plant out there dies. I must accept this emptiness as a blessing, not a curse. I know why I was put here, mother. My purpose is to bring death." (Maximilian Conte)

Faith can be powerful but for those who lack it, well...sometimes another solution is required. I don't know how you do things in Arendelle but here a deal requires an exchange of goods.
