True Self

Work Text:

So. You know who I am, now. I can't help feeling that you're puzzled. I don't know why you would be.

Does my tone surprise you? It's only in my nature. Did you think I wouldn't be sharp, that I couldn't wound?

Were you misled by my appearance? But I shine. I cannot fulfil my purpose without shining.

It's you who determine how you see me. Perhaps, to another's eyes... but I've no way of telling you that. When you've mastered the art of getting inside someone else's head, come back, and we'll see what you make of me then.
