Chapter Text

carcinoGeneticist began trolling tentacleTherapist

CG: HEY.
CG: HEY ROSE.
CG: YOU WRITE SHIT, RIGHT?
TT: I generally strive for better quality than that, but yes.
TT: Do you need advice?
CG: SORT OF?
CG: I WROTE SOMETHING BUT
CG: UGH
CG: COULD YOU JUST READ IT FOR ME?
CG: TELL ME HOW TERRIBLE AND MEDIOCRE IT IS ON A SCALE BETWEEN ‘MUSCLEBEAST SHIT’ AND ‘TOXIC WASTE.’
TT: Heh. I doubt it’s that bad.
TT: Send it over.

CG: …
CG: WELL?
TT: This is certainly something.
CG: OH GOD. DON’T SUGARCOAT IT, ROSE, IT WON’T MAKE IT TASTE ANY BETTER GOING DOWN.
TT: As my dear ectoslime brother would say: calm your tits, Karkat.
TT: It’s very interesting in a way I’m having trouble putting into words.
CG: LALONDE THE LOQUACIOUS, HAVING TROUBLE PUTTING SOMETHING INTO WORDS? OH SHIT, NOW I’VE DONE IT.
TT: You sure have. Rendering me nearly speechless might cause a rift in paradox space.
TT: Now where was I.
CG: YOU WERE ABOUT TO TELL ME I’M A TERRIBLE WRITER AND I SHOULD NEVER APPROACH A NARRATIVE FORM EVER AGAIN.
TT: Ah, yes.
TT: You command of metaphor is frankly astounding. You’re even better in text than you are verbally, and that’s saying something.
CG: I— WHAT?
TT: However, they do tend to get out of hand. Even as entertaining as they are, when they approach a paragraph in length it does look like you’ve lost the plot more than a little.
TT: Also, it’s way too obvious who Daevid actually is.
CG: WAIT, FUCK, DID I FORGET TO CHANGE HIS NAME. I FORGOT TO CHANGE HIS NAME. OH, FUCK ME SIDEWAYS.
TT: You did, but I would have been able to tell, anyway.
TT: I’m impressed, though, you got his speech patterns down perfectly.
TT: Right down to the point that I’m now having interesting mental images after reading that erotic scene.
TT: Did you mean for Duke Direclaw to be recognizable as you?
CG: ALKSJDLFJLS
CG: I’M GOING TO GO DIE NOW
CG: IT’S BEEN NICE KNOWING YOU, ROSE, EXCEPT FOR THE PARTS WHERE YOU DRIVE YOUR AWFUL HUMAN PSYCHOANALYSIS STRAIGHT INTO MY BLOODPUSHER.
TT: But it’s a very good erotic scene!
TT: Even with the laser pistols going in places they weren’t intended.
