Fanfic

The heart of Abnegation was the forgetting of self—and the remembrance of the consequences when he failed. Tobias knew this, thoroughly. He recited it to himself as he trembled in a ball on the floor of the small, dark closet. Forget self. Forget myself. Urgently, pleadingly. Forget, forget, forget.

He learned everything there was to know about tears.

The heart of Dauntless was the forgetting of fears—and why they mattered. Tobias knew this, thoroughly. He recited it to himself every time he stepped into his fearscape when he remembered the closet, remembered the beatings, remembered his father, remembered why he walked away. Forget fear. My fears don’t matter. Urgently, pleadingly. Forget, forget, forget.

He forgot everything there was to know about tears.
