Summary: I've got voices in my head, but I know it's alright. They're only trying to help.
Word Count: 240
Note: Um, it might be a little weird. That's all, really.

(for anybody browsing at the wrong time, I am attempting to LJ cut right now. And most likely, I will fail at this endeavor. BUT I WILL PERSEVERE.)

I've got voices in my head, but I know it's alright. They're only trying to help.

There's the quiet one, shy but intelligent, and with a voice like silk. But she only talks rarely. Usually she just writes text in my head, logic and progressive things. She's rarely malicious, but when she is, it hurts like hell.

And then there's the loud one. Obnoxious, emotional, a little bit idiotic. She speaks quickly, and without much thought. She tends towards the absurd. She lies for no reason, and she falls in love too quickly. When she tries to be angry, she always ends up sad, and annoyed at herself, and annoyed at herself

for being annoyed at herself. The cycle goes on.

It's much easier to describe the latter voice. She's dominant in my mindand she takes charge most of the time. Most likely, it's just difficult for me to read when there's somebody talking.

You could say they were friends. They *are* friends. They just don't see each other often. When they do, they drive each other insane.

I guess it's a bad combination, so I try not to mix logic and emotion. All you get is... logical emotion. And that can't be good.

There are a couple of metaphors I could use here. Food coloring. Paint. I could just mention primary colors, I suppose. But no point in that.

I think I'll just go back to listening.

I like it because I feel like I'm sitting there, with the narrator, cross legged on the floor listening to them ramble, stop, add more and so on. It's good. Do you have plans for it?

Thank you! The narrarator.... IS ME. BWAAHAHAHAHAAHA. But thanks, I'm glad you like my storytelling.

I don't exactly have plans for it right now. I'm just trying to write as much stuff as possible right now.
