[10:04] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Gomen X-chan ><
[10:04] <@Dr. Xadium> I told you it's fine
[10:05] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> But if I didn't push you into trying to rearrange the livingroom the 52" TV wouldn't have broken :<
[10:05] <@Dr. Xadium> A TV's not as important as my loved ones :)
[10:05] * @Dr. Xadium hugs Mina
[10:05] <@Dr. Xadium> Though what I *can't* forgive you for is what you did at the Discount store XD
[10:05] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Moh! XD
[10:05] <FireFly_9> What did she do?
[10:06] <@Dr. Xadium> Well we went there to get some kind of token to mark our 5th Wedding anniversary, but every time she saw something she had to make some kind of comment that put me off it
[10:06] <@Dr. Xadium> like, for instance, we'd see a nice vase
[10:06] <@Dr. Xadium> Then she'd say "Ne, ne, X-chan, that looks like someone's ashes could have been in it"
[10:07] <FireFly_9> Hah!
[10:07] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> MOH! If you didn't AGREE with me, you wouldn't have been bothered!!
[10:07] <@Dr. Xadium> Yes but had you not POINTED IT OUT things would have been fine :P
[10:07] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> Like I could stare at a damn urn all day ><
[10:07] <FireFly_9> An Urn.
[10:08] <FireFly_9> The symbol of death.
[10:08] <FireFly_9> A memento mori.
[10:08] <FireFly_9> You know, it reminds me of the story I wanted to write once.
[10:08] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> You wanted to write a story?
[10:08] <FireFly_9> Oh yes, a tragedy in the vein of the masters.
[10:10] <FireFly_9> About two lovers, one whose love unlocked the heart of another, but when her heart was unlocked the girl he cared for became so immersed in the new possibilites of social existence that she began to marginalize and ignore the one who cared for her the most.
[10:10] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> ... That's depressing.
[10:10] <FireFly_9> Oh, no, it gets better.
[10:11] <FireFly_9> Eventually, the poor man at the heart of the take grows ever more despondent in his new isolation, still deeply in love, but forever locked out. So, he decides to kill himself on his birthday by ingesting hemlock.
[10:11] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> HOW THE HELL IS THAT BETTER?!
[10:11] <FireFly_9> And so he does the deed, and is finished.
[10:12] <FireFly_9> BUT THEN THE TWIST
[10:12] <@Dr. Xadium> Thank you M. Night Shyamalan?
[10:12] <FireFly_9> :P
[10:13] <FireFly_9> In actuality his lover had not forgotten him at all, but had been conspiring with the other friends whom he thought she had left him for to stage him a huge surprise party.
[10:13] <FireFly_9> They all enter the home to see his corpse slumped over the kitchen table holding a picture of her.
[10:13] <FireFly_9> Fin.
[10:14] * FireFly_9 shivers at the poetic darkness of it all, the raw human tragedy and the beauty of the suffering.
[10:14] <@Dr. Xadium> Tell me again why you're one of the good guys :P
[10:14] <[gTV]C'est_la_V> ... That is the most horrifying thing ever...
[10:14] * [gTV]C'est_la_V GRABS X-chan
[10:15] *** [gTV]C'est_la_V [GldnGoddess@upperdeck.ginga.tv] has left #suburbansenshi (c'mon let's go do something together just to put that vision out of our heads)
[10:15] *** @Dr. Xadium [user-19fasjd@TARDIS904563.panopticon.gallifrey.sen] has left #suburbansenshi (right!)
[10:15] * FireFly_9 chuckles
[10:15] <FireFly_9> That's the point, you two.
[10:15] <FireFly_9> Those horrifying tales of tragic loss are meant to inspire one to live their every moment now as if there was no other, so those tragedies might be averted.
[10:16] <// J_Daito //> *cough* I call bulls[BLEEP]t
[10:16] <FireFly_9> .. Why.
[10:16] <// J_Daito //> I note you killed the *man* in that story and not the woman.
[10:16] <// J_Daito //> Usually the beautiful woman dies a tragic death in that kind of archetype.
[10:16] <FireFly_9> ... What's your point.
[10:17] <// J_Daito //> you hate men and wanted to see a man undone by a woman
[10:17] <FireFly_9> I do not "hate" men.
[10:17] <// J_Daito //> I beg to differ
[10:17] <// J_Daito //> You're always castrating Elios and threatening me with violence
[10:17] <FireFly_9> Because the two of you act like Sophmoric boors towards me
[10:18] <// J_Daito //> "Sophmoric Boors?" It sounded like you were channelling Kaioh there
[10:18] <FireFly_9> She did help raise me :P
[10:18] *** // J_Daito // [Jed@dialup666.darkkingdom.co.jp] has left #suburbansenshi (Yes, your foster parents are a big reason why you can never, ever get a date)
[10:18] <FireFly_9> Dates aren't that big of a deal.
[10:19] <FireFly_9> really
[10:19] *** FireFly_9 [ruin@ntt1.docomo.jp] has left #suburbansenshi (really)
[10:19] *** Sun Sep 06 2009 - LOGGING STOP ***
