This, of course, resulted in me meeting some of Figment's more obscure mental parts, as well as me hashing out something that had been bothering me for a decent amount of time now. Love for love's sake is always love. Love for the sake of replacing something missing in my life results in me screaming in utter agony, screaming on a frequency that few other people can hear. Mystery solved.
One thing that Figment and I do have in common is a liking for certain Disney animated movies. Figment vaguely recalled a quote from The Little Mermaid, a quote directed at Prince Eric about Ariel that is ... all too applicable in the current mess. My Google-fu served me well.
(Fade to castle at night. Eric is playing the flute and contemplating as Grimsby approaches.)Figment wants to take that concept and smack a certain blonder half of mine upside the head with it.
Grimsby: Eric, if I may say, far better than any dream girl, is one of flesh and blood, one warm and caring, and right before your eyes.
Nice auroral activity back home.
