Me & My Muse – Day 2258: Friggatriskaideka…wha?

Ah, superstitions.  If you are a very superstitious person, I would beware of this day.  And with it being Friday the 13th in September, that might be even for cause for alarm.  You might find 13 smashed mirrors in your yard or 13 black cats.

Well, it’s a good thing that I’m not superstitious.  All I see friggatriskaidekaphobia as is just a fun word to say.  Who’s afraid of Friday the 13th?  I’m not.

Work went quite smoothly today.  It was quite productive and I got a lot done.


Muse:  And I got a lot of reading done!

What are you doing here?

Muse:  With the Dark Muse sleeping for so long inside my tween body, I was able to regain my consciousness and leave.  I figured that it would be better than just being bored inside her…I had to remodel my room.  It’s perfect for a tween, but not for me.

Yeah.  She’s sleeping because of Remedy.  He put her into a deep sleep so that he could create a meme that would destroy her popularity.

Muse:  I know.  My father told me everything!  It’s kind of strange that popularity gives her power.  But with her being Intangible, anything is possible.  Right?

Yes.  But that’s you.  You’re supposed to be in your transformation cycle right now…

Muse:  And be bored?  No way!  Besides, during the child story arc, I made an adult version of myself to help me out!

And how are you helping your tween self out right now?

Muse:  By giving her space, I guess?  She’s sleeping right now so I don’t think she even notices.

Do you ever get tired of the same plot?  The Dark Muse is always responsible for causing trouble and the resolution is always the same.  Nothing ever happens to us because of plot armor and we have safeguards in place to prevent the writer from writing himself into a corner.

Muse:  It does get tiresome, but you have to remember.  That Dark Muse is my twin sister.  She has already told me that she hates her form and that she wants to be an Intangible like me.  She already is, kind of.  She’s just a bad idea inside an Intangible’s body.

An Intangible clone of you, of all things…

Muse:  So I put up with the plot for her sake.  After all, why else would she keep wanting to go inside me?  As a sister, she loves me, and has never been able to express that kind of love in her life.  She has never learned to love like we do so who can blame her?

I certainly can’t, and had I known the truth about who she really was, I would’ve been so mean to her.  You remember the 1900 story arc?

Muse:  I don’t really want to remember that.  You were also mean to me.  I was her during that transformation cycle so you were being mean to me most of the time!

And that’s where I regret it.  During the special millennial post, it all made sense.  She wanted me to accept her.  She wanted to be like you…

Muse:  Yes.  And don’t worry regretting anything.  The adversary was using you and me.  He wanted to create hatred between both of us…

Well, I hope that this meme works.  How many other ways are we going to stop the “big bad” Dark Muse?

Muse:  Ha ha.  Big and bad?  I guess I’ll give you that.  She’s never been taught to love so she’s going off of instinct.  But you know what?  She’s trying to love.  She’s trying to do this in every way that she can…

And that’s why the Creator says that she is not as dark as she thinks…

Muse:  Yes.  With her still sleeping, I’m going to do some more reading, okay?  Visit me later.  I should be around for a while…

Sounds good.  I am now going to enjoy my weekend and continue working on my book.

Muse:  See you later, Kyle!

*Muse vanishes in a beam of light*

That’s about the gist for today.  I am not superstitious so today is just another day.  Time to enjoy the weekend!

My Muse is currently 11 years and 9.5 months old today. She is 3’6.5″ tall and she weighs 34 pounds. The height and weight of a five-year old.

Today’s high is going to be 76 degrees and the silver lining is it finally being Friday.

To those of you who are not friggatriskaidekaphobic, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  I really wish that she could be a real Intangible.  I was never able to grow up with her, so I kind of longed for that connection as well.  Time to continue reading…
