"I have to tell my friend about it. He'd be so happy."

Permalink

"Oh."

"Do you know if it gets any easier? Missing people all the time?"

Permalink

"I didn't start out missing anyone. I'd guess it would but I don't know."

Permalink

"Hopefully it's not one of those things that varies that whoever made you didn't do nicely."

Permalink

"Are there a lot of those?"

Permalink

"Things that vary? Lots. It might've looked easy for my wife to make me but she had me mostly figured out in advance."

"Are backup people for just in case common?"

Permalink

"If you're the sort who makes them at all, yes."

Permalink

"Everything is so weird here. Or I'm weird. Or something. I was pretty good at things and then--I mean, I thought, or I think... I hate this."

Permalink

"You could move to another round if you think you'd like it better but I think this one's pretty good."

Permalink

"The round is fine. I think. I haven't really gone anywhere."

Permalink

"You'll pick up the language, you don't seem slow."

Permalink

"It's hard, but m... I remember my friend teaching me how to learn."

Permalink

"Teaching you how to learn?"

Permalink

Nodnod. "I had a lot of trouble learning how to read. He helped me figure it out."

Permalink

"Well, yeah, learning to read is hard and practically no one does it."

Permalink

"I..." She scrunches up her face. "I don't know how to talk about what I remember."

Permalink

"Uh, it's a little convoluted but 'I started with a memory that'? Or - 'in the story I'm from' is a bad translation of an idiom about a thing some people do where they pretend somebody they're going to make already exists for a while, and then make the person with those memories, they think it lets you test out how they'll fit into your life. You could talk like you were made that way."

Permalink

"I started with a memory that I learned how to read. Does that sound as stupid to you as it feels to say?"

Permalink

"Awkward in this language. Less so in the vernacular -" He translates it. "It does sound weird but only since it's such an uncommon skill to have to learn. I guess people who start as very small children have to, or get along without."

Permalink

"I guess I probably didn't really learn it, either."

Permalink

"Yeah. Pity you didn't start knowing a more useful language."

Permalink

"If I could have known both, that would have been nice."
