Black Mage peer edits (alternate) Fighter's notes on Sword-Chuckery.

Cast Appearing[]

Fighter Black Mage, Black Mage! You know all those prothetic dreams I've had with a spectacled talking sword telling me that I'm a chosen warrior? They're true!
Black Mage Yes, clearly I was a fool to doubt the words of a figment talking sword.
Fighter Do you know how I know it's true?
Black Mage No, but I'm sure I will no matter how much I care.
Fighter I found the ultimate guide to Sword-Chucks in my pocket just now! It was written by an alternate version of myself, probably through some overly-complicated series of indecipherable events of the temporal mechanic variety. Anyway! Not only do I have the potential to achieve the other me's greatness, which is mine, but I've got a head start on it thanks to these notes!
Black Mage That's nonsense. Allow me to lend those notes my critical eye... BEAMS!
Black Mage fires his eye beams at Fighter and his notes, destroying only the notes and leaving a somewhat charred Fighter.
Black Mage I did you a favor. See how those notes disintegrated like so many dreams upon the harsh crags of reality? You don't need to prop your hopes up on something so fleeting. It will only end in suffering.
Fighter I can tell...
Black Mage goes off screen.
Fighter Well, it's a good thing I committed the contents of those notes to memory.
Fightar's Memery Did you ever notice that you park in a driveway and drive in a parkway?
Fighter Aw, stupid useless memory. I forget things so fast, it's a wonder I talking good can still do.
Black Mage Quit lagging behind! And don't give me that sad "my life is ruined" puppy eyes routine. All I did was speed up the process so you wouldn't have time to get your hopes up.
