goryteller: (what is my life)

twenty-four. video.

[The communicator is focused on a darkened wall. A beam of light. A shadow puppet emerges, a grotesque face with "lips" that move in time with Katurian's voice.]

I feel like a pig about to be slaughtered.

[The face collapses. He uses his hands to form the shadow into a pig, appropriately. He squeals, shrill, and then chokes on a laugh. High pitched, pig-like:]

A dog about to be put down.

[He forms his hands, predictably, into a dog. BARK BARK, he goes, moving the shadow's jaw. He uncurls his hands without fanfare this time, clearing his throat. Growing unsteady. The camera stays on the empty wall.]

Tell me how you feel today. With art.
enigmaestro: (I haz a point.)

Wait, why am I a DC? What sort of name is that? Surely that stands for something.

I wouldn't call Norman a marvel. Maybe his psychosis is a marvel.
viced: (Two for oh)

[ A low moan of frustration. ]

Well it used to be Detective Comics, you know, for Batman, but it's really just DC now. Detective Comics comics just sounds stupid!
enigmaestro: (Essentially the opposite of funny.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 10:47 pm (UTC)(link)
No it doesn't. It makes more sense than DC -- it's a comic about detectives.

I'm a detective!
viced: (Oh er)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 10:52 pm (UTC)(link)
But it's a publishing group! There's still a Detective Comics out there! You're even in it sometimes!
enigmaestro: (Enthusiasm.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 10:54 pm (UTC)(link)
Because --

[Beat. And he has that sinking feeling. Spoken hopefully:]

-- I'm a detective?
viced: (/eyeroll)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 11:06 pm (UTC)(link)
Batman's a detective too, you know. [ What an artful dodge... ]
enigmaestro: (Uneasy.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 11:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Are you -- are you trying to say that he's the focal point?
viced: And really why would you? (yeah what the hell)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 11:10 pm (UTC)(link)

Yes. That's exactly what I'm saying.
enigmaestro: (Buh-wha?)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 11:12 pm (UTC)(link)
What? I assumed he'd showcase in something more inanely titled, like Batman or something.
viced: And really why would you? (Broke something)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 11:14 pm (UTC)(link)
He's in that too, and probably three other titles consistently.
enigmaestro: (Gritting.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-10 11:52 pm (UTC)(link)
He's Batman, not omnipotent.
viced: And really why would you? (Uh oh)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-10 11:57 pm (UTC)(link)
It's Batman! That's as close as a person can get!
enigmaestro: (Fury.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-11 12:53 am (UTC)(link)
Whose team are you on?
viced: (Tempting fate)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-11 01:33 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sure as hell not on his! Blame the writers, not the readers!
enigmaestro: (Pout.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-11 01:35 am (UTC)(link)
Hmph. [Whatever, still sulking.] I've already mentioned how much I dislike your world, anyway.
viced: (Ow.)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-11 01:44 am (UTC)(link)
Hey! My world isn't that bad! Just because yours is more interesting...
enigmaestro: (I haz a point.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-11 01:46 am (UTC)(link)
I see you pulling that flattery thing on me, Hundred! Don't think I don't see you.
viced: And really why would you? (What did you say?)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-11 02:06 am (UTC)(link)
Fuck, it's not working? I guess it's time for plan B, then.
enigmaestro: (Arched.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-11 02:07 am (UTC)(link)
... And what is Plan B?
viced: And really why would you? (Yep I'm a bastard)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-11 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
[ UH ]

Buying you a coffee, so you can weather all the overtime you're going to pull tonight?
enigmaestro: (Shock and horror.)

[personal profile] enigmaestro 2012-02-11 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
Going to pull through?
viced: (B')

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-11 03:31 am (UTC)(link)
If I can't flatter you, I'll distract you!
viced: (Today I saw titties for the first time)

[personal profile] viced 2012-02-11 03:37 am (UTC)(link)
Jesus Christ, Edward!
enigmaestro: (Morning.)

This is not how you fix things.
