Back To Myself
An alumnus of both Ficlets.com and Ficly.com. Who, for some weird reason, is starting his time here with an abundance of cannibalism-themes stories. O.o
For the first time in a long time, I feel like myself. Of course, this does have its pros and cons.
On the pro side, I'm actually social. I can actually engage people in conversation. Conversations that I honestly care about. And about anything! Music, history, art, current events. Anything!
Also, I don't feel useless. For months, I've had the mindset that I am, even at my most constructive, a complete and utter waste of good oxygen. Oh, sure, I would put on the masks that I need to get through the day. People saw me as being helpful and happy, but that's just because it's what I knew they expected of me. Inside, I just didn't care. Now, however, I do care. I honestly want to help people, and feel overjoyed when I do. Even if it's something as simple as giving a stranger directions to where they're going, I feel amazing.
Unfortunately, feeling like myself does come with its downside.
Like the fact that the voices are back.
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?

A beautiful set-up! What voice you've given you're character!

I can relate to how it feels to be this narrator.

Thanks. :-) I actually did base the character on myself, just without the voices. (At least, that's what the voices keep telling me.) ;-)
