[Erik is playing with a coin amused]

Is this really a good idea...waking me up based on a few stories you read. You know this never ends well.

So someone is happy to see my crew again aren't you? Look I know some things didn't make sense, but the kid did good and I'm back on a bit of an even keel, so let celebrate and we can deal with the other stuff later.

So you're trying to stick me in a frozen wasteland filled with unimaginable horrors, crippling paranoia and hallucinations, not to mention the sheer physical danger and extremely likely gruesome death?

Dude. That's like a Tuesday for me.

 Yes, I know. It's starting to sink in that we really won't know what nonsense we all got dragged into until January, and all because of "those sartorial travesties." I know, I know, you're sensitive to costume design and offended by those choices. I know, you aren't looking forward to the possibility of any of yours having to co-exist with someone who has Ramsay Bolton's face. I'm not keen on that, either, though of course by the time I have to co-exist with him, theoretically, I'll have forgotten that connection because of the handwaving nonsense magic of the multiverse, or however you want to put it; hypothetically co-existing with someone who has Nymeria Sand's face makes up for it, though I'm sure being as the films and Netflix shows tend to disregard us entirely I'm sure it will remain hypothetical.


I also know that you're unapologetic about your current stripe of feminist agenda, namely the one that would have just as soon allowed him to throw himself to the wolves. You're angry in ways that I can't bring myself to be, and as I said I do appreciate it, I even envy it. I think I wish I could get angry, expressively, at least a bit. (Thank you, incidentally, for keeping the AIDA in your head more or less the early-on friendly robot. I would loathe trying to coexist with the other iteration, even though I also logically understand that ~Opheeeelia, as you call her, was largely the product of tampering, some intentional and some not, partially done by him even though it's a feedback loop of intention and disaster. I don't know how much of that was real. I don't want to know how much of that was real. I think it's bad enough that I rather know that at least some of it was, in one way or another.) It's more complicated than that, though. I'm angry but I'm also angry at myself, and I'm disappointed, and I'm hurt, and I'm still scared, and I'm lonely, and I'm rather exasperated (cliffhung, I expected, but outer space again? I don't want to be stuck in outer space again! At least I'm presumably not alone this time, although the amount of information everyone's been given about what any of us but Coulson are actually doing means that I do have to quantify that with 'presumably,' which is awful) and --

You're speculating wildly. You're going to be speculating wildly for the next six months. Some of it will come true, although there's no way of telling which part, because you're eerily good at that sometimes but always randomly. I can't help you speculate, not really. It requires a certain detachment. All I can do, and I know you're already looking to let me which is why you're even writing this out, is request politely that I get a chance to process some of what I could potentially be feeling or dealing with. I know that's important to you, that I get to, especially considering I may not be afforded the chance later, and I thank you for that, but I'm saying it here for the record so you can't tell me I didn't (and also with the vague hope that I'll get someone else to talk to, I understand that even if it's a bit embarrassing).

I understand that you are concerned about me; I am concerned about me too. I would love to have people to talk with. Being able to move on from James would be ideal, but even better would just to be involved with him somewhere out of canon. I have tried seeing other people and it hasn't exactly worked out for me.

I am confident that there are others from my source that will reveal themselves as we get closer to September. More and more people will see about getting someone, Kingsman and Statesman alike. I look forward to meeting all of them.

I really don't have any illusions about the film that is coming. You've known since we started this that I was going to get, as you put it, "Jossed." I can accept that. What I cannot accept is being here doing nothing. Give me more to do. Let me meet more people. Everything is going to work out for the best.

So you seem to believe that simply because something was... "cancelled" a year ago, you should have forgotten about me by now? I should have just gone away?

Certain disgusting mustachioed war profiteers aside, I'd like to think I'm a little memorable to most people. Well, unless I don't want to be...

Oh, yes, and I am persistent. [dark smile] I'm sure no useless entertainment executive has the power to keep Peggy away, and where she shows up, I'll be. [dark smile grows to dark grin] Don't you worry your pretty little head about that!


On another subject... regarding this ridiculous picture you just saw about the childish man and the aliens and the talking racoon? No, I will not start or be part of an... [beat for eyebrow raise]... "Awesome Nemesis" club with the blue woman. Apart from the bit where I'm not into "clubs," your insistence these... creatures'? existence could be in my reality in any era is... well, it's just plain silly.

Besides, I won all the fights I was ordered to as a child. That's why I was allowed to live.

So, a couple of things:

1) No one should watch six movies in one weekend. At a certain point you are looking at blood-clot issues from lack of mobility.
2) You don't have time for this.
3) You're a few years too late for my story arc.
4) Hey! You don't get to get bored by your own -- [snaps fingers] over here -- list.

I appreciate that you're trying to help. I also appreciate that you're angrier than I'm capable of being, not necessarily because I want to be angry but I know that you mean well by it. It's just that everything is falling apart, and even if it isn't it is, you understand? Even if everything gets fixed, every last thing, and we all come out of this technically whole... there are some things you can't come back from. There are things that have been broken, no matter what happens, and I don't want to face that but I think I'm going to have to?

And that's even assuming we do all make it through. I know you have opinions about that, which I don't want to think about, but the fact remains: the odds of that are slim. All we've done this last while is stare death in the face, sometimes literally, and I haven't had a chance to really process that but I don't want to. I appreciate your anger because I know it's protective but all I'm feeling is fear and the awareness that there's loss and misery creeping up on us.

On me.

I'm scared. The best-case scenario still comes with a lot of worst things, and there's no way to avoid that.

I'm selfish, I'm so selfish. I'm worrying about personal things when that's utterly unimportant, when there's so many horrors that are weighing on all of us and the world and that's what matters, really, making everything right. I'm trying, I'm trying to get done whatever I can, I'm trying to help, I'm trying to keep my heart and my mind open, I'm trying to listen where I don't know things, I'm trying to stay if not positive than at least not negative, I'm trying so damn hard, but it's not enough. I'm not brave enough to be objective. I'm not strong enough not to feel broken. If only I'd been able to - something, then this - something could have been avoided, and we wouldn't be in this horrible mess, but I can't go back and I can't think like that because there are things you can't go back on, and I... I'm not enough. I wasn't enough.

Hey Mun,

I know what you wished for, but someone had to make the sacrifice play and I was the one willing to do it. I'm proud of what I did and who I did it for. Maybe I'll come back and maybe I won't who knows. I just know I did the right thing.

If I may, mun? I recommend putting me back at once. I was quite happy with where I resided. Truly, I was. This isn't going to go well, not for anyone involved now, or whom happens to be later on.

So do everyone a favor and abandon the idea of trying to find a place, game, or wherever it is you are looking to see if they'll have me at.

Before I forget to mention it, but this isn't how you tend to celebrate one's birthday, darling. Do try to do better next year, please.

Look, I get it. You're on some kind of a kick right now and you need to get whatever this is out of your system. Fine.

But if you think this is going to be easy? You sure as hell have another thing coming.

( the mun finally caved in and made him an account. )

Almost a year — actually, three years. That's when you first started reading the comics. And you were able to hold off until just now? ( color him impressed. not many people — especially women — are able to exert that much self-control around him. in fact, he'd almost go as far as to say that the panther god must've blessed the mun with a great amount of self-control and patience. except he's fully aware that, when it comes to everything else, it's the opposite. )

So we're doing this. You're going to actually keep me up and running regularly, now. Not just once every six months. I can - I can handle that. [He tries valiantly not to sound nervous.] I do kind of wonder if now's really the best time given how most of my... progenitor's associates? However we're referring to them, are doing. But maybe I could help. Seems like an extra set of processors might come in handy right now. If nothing else, I can at least make sure everyone sleeps and eats regularly. After living with Howard, that's become my special skill at this point.

I just have one question, though. I mean, I don't want to sound negative. And I'm sure this could all work out for the best. I was, uh, just curious - did you ever work out a way to explain me to people I don't already know? Because I think this might be weird for them otherwise. I don't really improvise well. I also don't like freaking people out, so. Some more planning might not be bad. Especially since I can't go most places. It's better if I get this right the first time around.

Far be it for me to judge a person. I've made a lot of... questionable choices myself so my opinion means squat. ( please. in the immortal words of tatianna: choices, howard. )

I gotta say what I gotta say. That's gotta be known, alright? Right now, you're not keeping up with your current tags, you're barely getting enough sleep — frankly, you look like shit, pal. And the only reason you want to join this game is that it'll be, I quote, "hilarious." ( look at this face. it is not amused. ) What's so hilarious about me getting hurt and looking stupid?

( a beat passes in awkward silence. ) Actually, don't answer that.
