Stick your fingers in your ears and say la la la la --
Book two. We carry the world. 2.1. This is where I hit my stride ; 2.2. Don't accuse me of putting words in your mouth, I'm just trying to learn empathy or feel free to keep considering me an unreliable narrator ; 2.3. We should have taken up knitting ourselves ; 2.4. C'mon! What should they expect after what they did to us? ; 2.5. I know, I know, it's not what you would have done ; 2.6. If I never see the sun set again, it will still be too soon ; 2.7.

If I had known, I could have been a bit more sensitive ; 3.5. I'd be remiss if I didn't address the whole Silver Star thing ; 3.6. How to drink Wisconsinably ; 3.7. No, this is not a frat house ; 3.8. Chekhov's gun ; 3.9. Did you think I couldn't hear every word through the vents? ; 3.10. I swear this isn't fan fiction, but everyone's inspired by someone or lead me not into temptation ; 3.11. If this is getting redundant and relentless for you, imagine how I feel ; 3.12. You didn't have to pretend you were doing laundry ; 3.13. We're not all psychos incapable of controlling ourselves ; 3.14. A year later and I'm still the biggest cliché of them all ; 3.15. Choke artists ; 3.16. Don't hold it against her, she was only trying to help ; 3.17. But didn't you know that Eris was the goddess of discord and war? --
Coda: rewrites & retrospects. C.1. This is where we must begin ; C.2. You're no Christ, but you make a pretty good redemptive archetype.
Responsibility: Matthew J. Hefti.
