Here ends the Silmarillion; and if it has passed from the high and the beautiful to darkness and ruin, that was of old the fate of Arda Marred

...yeah, half of it. You ate the right half. The left half's still there - here, try looking through my eyes -

Annnnd when I do that it looks like the plate is full.

Permalink

Well, that's terrifying. Uh, turn it partway around?

Permalink

So Kib turns the plate, and eats what is now on the right side, and turns it more, and finishes up. This is weird and Boots is scary.

And if the Enemy had those capabilities, causing you to not believe you were in his custody would be really easy, even if he were actively torturing you...

Permalink

Ayep.

Permalink

Did I find it all or is there more stuff, do you know?

One other thing. She said the college prank she'd heard of left you unable to read but that'd freak you out so you can read just fine.

Permalink

Also the Enemy can in fact do that one.

Permalink

I don't know if she knew that. I don't think the Enemy could do what she did instead.

Permalink

Is it the kind of thing I will notice going about my day? Colors was obvious, ignoring the left halves of things is apparently obvious to supervision...

Permalink

I'd be surprised if you didn't notice shortly after trying to get to work, yeah.

Permalink

All right then -

He grabs his computer, squints at it, compresses the display into the right half and puts random background artwork on the left -

".......um."

Permalink

"Is 'it' the inability to add two and two."

Permalink

"I'm not actually clear on how it'd manifest but yes, sounds right. How does that even work - what is it like -"

Permalink

"It's weird. I mean, I can remember having added two and two in the past, I can even retrieve the answer out of eidetic memory since I happen to have ever done it. But I can't do it."

Permalink

"All set to have her undo it? Also, yikes."

Permalink

"It's very weird. I'm gonna sit with it a little longer, it's interesting and not intrusive enough to make me panicky, I mean, I did tell her to do it."

Permalink

"Wasn't saying she's unethical, it's just - scary to be around people who could do anything at all to you if they wanted to -"

Permalink

"Yeah. I wonder why she even knows how to do these things? Maybe they're easy for some reason."

Permalink

"Or related to treatments for the same problems."

Permalink

"I have heard of people who are bad at math and color blindness but I've never heard of 'ignoring the left halves of things syndrome'."

Permalink

"...yeah, point taken. We can ask her when she drops by - you don't have trouble walking or using your left hand or anything, do you?"
