IRL Nautilus: Well, I guess I better get started on my returning post to the Aetherlight forums.
A month’s worth of an hour a day staring at a blank page later…
IRL Nautilus: Okay now I’ve really got to get started on my returning post to the Aetherlight forums.
Musical Nautilus: You should write a parody of one of your favorite songs to convey your point. It’s worked before, why not now?
IRL Nautilus: Because I’ve never used it on the forums before, and frankly, I’m not sure you’re the answer to my dilemma.
Musical Nautilus: How dare you.
Forums Nautilus: Just give me the reins, I’ll take care of it. Have I ever let you down before?
IRL Nautilus: Yes. I can remember at least three separate cringe moments.
Forums Nautilus: Fair enough. But still, three mistakes out of a thousands posts? Not a bad track record.
Writing Nautilus: You should be writing something for the Rebellion roleplay now, not your returning forums post-
Roguecog-in-me: No, you should be doing something fun and exciting, like- eating yogurt or ice cream or biking or-
Nautilus-in-me: Roguecog, you really think sweets and excess exercise is more important than writing a speech?
Roguecog-in-me: Duh, YEAH!
IRL Nautilus: Can we please get back to the topic at hand?
Roguecog-in-me: Yes, I believe you were about to go do something fun-
Incoherent noise as a dozen different voices in IRL Nautilus’ head start squabbling over what he should be doing
IRL Nautilus: Enough! I’d rather not write any returning speeches and just say “Hey, I’m back.” than listen to all of you fight in my head!
Nautilus-in-me & Roguecog-in-me: Okay, do that.
You heard them.
It’s not a big deal.
