TG: well ty for finally confiding in me calilope TG: *calliope sorrey UU: yoU're welcome. it is good to get it off my chest. UU: bUt i am primarily telling yoU this as a last resort, in hopes of saving myself. UU: yoU see, this rUle between me and my brother is a kind of trUce. UU: we have both agreed not to say oUr names to anyone so that things will not get oUt of hand, and so it became one of the rUles. UU: if anyone were to say his name to me, i woUld immediately fall asleep, and he woUld wake Up. UU: so yoU will Understand if i refrain from telling yoU his as well. ~_u TG: so TG: hes sleeping now? UU: yes, fortUnately for both of Us. UU: now, chronologically speaking, i have never contacted yoU after this moment. UU: so if i never wake Up from my next nap, yoU will never hear from me again. UU: if yoU do not hear from me later, i woUld very mUch appreciate it if yoU coUld message my brother, and say my name. UU: it may be the only chance i have to wake Up again. TG: fuuuck TG: this is highly terrible and scary stuff youre saying TG: but yes ill def do that UU: splendid! UU: <kisses> TG: shit now i wish we had more time to talk TG: quick what otter rules were you going 2 break TG: spill it cali!! UU: i want to! UU: it is overwhelming, trying to be cavalier aboUt rUles i have respected all my life. i'm not sUre where to begin. TG: well TG: what i wonder is TG: you said you couldnt have romantic feelings TG: or "red relations" as you said in your trolly way UU: oh, i can have romantic feelings. UU: jUst not the flUshed kind, which hUmans describe as romantic love. TG: ok but TG: i didnt think that was alien to you TG: not the way u made it sound TG: like dont trolls have the 4 kinds and one kind is just staight up love feelins UU: yes, that's right. UU: bUt... UU: oh bUgger. this is so embarrassing to have to admit. UU: i am sorry for saying things which may have reasonably led yoU to believe this. UU: probably way too many things. u_u; UU: bUt i am not actUally a troll. TG: o TG: rrrrrelay UU: i have never actUally claimed to be. bUt i'm sUre i have implied it, probably dUe to wishfUl thinking. UU: i have spent so mUch time wishing i coUld be one. UU: trolls are a remarkable and fascinating race. UU: hUmans are too, please don't get me wrong! UU: bUt i am oUt and oUt smitten with trolls and their history and ways. UU: they have sUch amazing, coloUrfUl social dynamics that soUnd like so mUch fUn to be a part of. UU: and they are so beaUtifUl. UU: i wish i coUld be that pretty. UU: UnfortUnately, i am not very attractive at all. UU: sad to say, no one woUld kiss the corpse i will leave behind. UU: even if there were someone aroUnd to revive me, i doUbt they woUld be inclined to bother. UU: for, er... several reasons, actUally. UU: bUt really, it was always for the best that i cannot have fUlly flUshed feelings. UU: no one coUld ever love me. TG: oh man no!!! TG: that is not true UU: it is. UU: and it's for the best that no one has ever seen my face, aside from my brother. TG: but i want 2 c u TG: i proimise i wont think you look bad or judge you UU: no. UU: i am sorry. TG: :( TG: then what kinda alien are you TG: wait dont tell me youre ACUTALLY from urnanus?? UU: heehee. no. UU: that jUst happened to be a planet from yoUr system i thoUght was lovely. UU: i was particUlarly strUck by its UniqUe rotation. UU: it has very nice... UU: bollocks, what's the word. UU: the term that refers to a ball's topspin? TG: ??? UU: it doesn't matter. UU: bUt no, i'm not even from yoUr Universe, let alone a nearby planet. UU: my species has never even had a home planet. TG: what species are u UU: i am a cherUb!
