===> Introduce yourself properly
Why the hell would you do that? All of these chumps should know who you are by now. It should be on a first - name basis by now. You are Dave Strider.
Well, you use to be.
In a sense, you still sort of are. Only difference now is that you are no longer the thirteen - year - old cool kid you once were. You’ve never been anything but cool (or so you told yourself), and you’re still thirteen, technically, because the clock stopped long ago.
You want to say that on the inside, you’re still just the same, but you knew that wasn’t true.
===> Stop drowning in self pity and get to it
Right. Your name is Dave Strider, and you’re one of the unlucky ones who were screwed over by paradox space. It’s been years since sburb and you’re still not quite sure how you made it out alive, but you did.
You’re not sure whether to be grateful for that.
Things would never be the same — everything you had before was gone. The ‘real’ Dave had it all, and you couldn’t help but feel just a bit jealous. It’s infuriating, but you’ve gotten use to it.
You’ve gotten use to a lot of things. Like knowing things will change around you and there was nothing you could do about it. Everyone and everything was a victim to time.
All except you.
Sometimes, you’re not sure what was worse — being a victim, or being forgotten by it, like an old rag doll it saw no point in playing anymore. Sometimes, you manage to convince yourself that it’s a good thing, but that never lasts for long.
===> Come on kid we don’t have all day
If you could, you would tell that voice in your head to shove it up theirs, and you probably would have if you didn’t realize it’s just a voice.
You weren’t that crazy.
“Oh, fuck you.”
