Me: I shall write a novel with a trans protagonist.
Also Me: This is a terrible idea.
Me: What do you mean? The world needs more good trans stories by trans authors.
Also Me: *sighs* Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Me: *shakes head* Sometimes I don’t understand you at all.
Me: *starts writing*
Me: Oh, God.
Me: It hurts!
Me: *stares down at my emotional trauma, splatted across the page*
Me: My God, my God, what have I done?
Also Me: And just think. You’re only on chapter 2.
Me: You could have warned me.
Also Me: *picks up cane*
Also Me: Come here for a minute. I have something to say to your knee caps.
