I’M SAD I CRASHED THE WEDDING
WRITTEN BY ZARIUS
Well, this a fine mess you’ve gotten us into DM.
“Can you get a clear signal back Narrator?”
It’s going to take a lot of juice in the unit, but I think we can manage an episode this week…no thanks to you.
“Relax Narrator, all I did was abort one time line. The anomalies from every aspect of the aborted dimension will ultimately merge as one to cope with the existing paradox”?”
If realiy can manage that before our scheduled transmission this evening DM, it would be appreciated DM.
“Right, well Penfold, any ideas on how to speed up the process ?”
“I’ve had time to think a bit cheif…I’ve got so many questions” said Penfold.
“That’s all well and good Penfold, but we need answers”
“But these are important to our futures, that is, if we still have any”
“Oh I’m sure we’ll have plenty of time” DM assured him
“And what time do you call this?” Penfold said in a huff.
“The end times?” DM replied.
“Exactly. It’s the end. Nothing but static and a white void…and all because you had to open your big mouth and inform reality what a muddle we’d gotten the timeline mixed up in..we live in a very sensetive universe Cheif. I hope you know that, you never know what kind of mood it’ll be in. I’m certain even it was enjoying Derick and Pennyfold’s wedding”
“Is that what your questions Penfold, some curiosity over whether or not the universe has some existential emotional compromise?”
“We watch soap operas for a reason, we’re invested in stories for a reason…it just makes sense for the universe, our motherly spirit, to be just as invested in how we move along” Penfold argued.
“So why would the universe even give me the freedom to express a bit of logic that would undo it’s investment?” a confused DM asked.
“Maybe it wanted to test your character…to see if you could keep that ego and insistence on having a correct hunch in check long enough for someone to live happily ever after”
“Surely that would be the universe giving itself permission to live a perfect lie then…I can’t see how the truth should hurt it so much” DM continued.
“Think of it like a computer with a virus, only the virus is the question, the same one that causes so many of us to go, on a bad day, ‘what’s the point?’, and constantly dwelling on that question leads to no easy answer…so we crash…and in this case, we’re lucky it didn’t result in the heat death of the universe” Penfold replied.
“Well, now I feel deflated…I guess the universe probably wants me to write it a frank and formal letter of apology before it resets”
“Will you even remember giving it the letter Cheif?” Penfold asked.
“I suppose a small part of me would…but that would probably only linger for a short time. Our will, though strong, can’t defy time”
Penfold felt a tingling sensation.
“I think reality’s starting to reallign, I can see everything forming around us”
“Well then, any further questions?” DM asked.
“Just one more, if Derick’s wedding did’nt happen now, will he and Pennyfold ever meet? Will they even be born?” Penfold asked.
“That’s a whole world and time apart from us Penfold, the important thing is, we just have to hope the universe is willing to give the grand soap opera called life another chance to thrive…nothing’s worse than a rerun”
Reassured, the pair allowed reality to realign, just in time for another mind-bending adventure on the edge of existence with Danger Mouse!
