"I can probably go have them change it for you."

“Thank you. And... how close to normal do people have to be made, here?”

Permalink

"What do you mean?"

Permalink

“Is anyone ever made, say, blind?”

Permalink

"That seems like it'd be malicious, so, it's not unheard of, but it's definitely illegal. Even if you made it so they didn't mind for some reason, the checkbox on the assistance form is just an advisory, it doesn't control the judges completely. Why do you ask?"

Permalink

“I changed my mind, if someone made me I am definitely going to kill them.”

Permalink

"Okay. Uh, I think you'd probably get off, but be really sure you can prove it was them who made you first."

Permalink

“Fine. It probably won’t make me feel any better, anyway. But if someone went to the trouble of making me illegally then they should have made my brother too.”

Permalink

"Your what?"

Permalink

“My brother. The person most important to me in any world. And even if I wanted to try to make him—which I definitely hadn’t decided yet, I’m not going to do anything like that on a whim—I wouldn’t be allowed to.”

Permalink

"It's not that I didn't hear you, I just don't know what that word means. Your best friend? Your husband?"

Permalink

“Born to the same parents. It doesn’t matter, you don’t have the concept. I couldn’t make him and I probably couldn’t make my closest friend, either, because the people I love don’t fit your stupid, arbitrary standards about what people are allowed to be.”

"...arbitrary?"

Arbitrary. If I made my brother able to see, he’d hate me or kill himself or both, and if he didn’t do either then I’d know he wasn’t really my brother.”

Permalink

"...I was about to ask who made him like that but then remembered whichever way you look at it nobody did."

Permalink

“I don’t want to be in a world where the people I love can’t exist.”

Permalink

"I guess you could go to some super crazy place where people are like 'let's make literally random people and take notes and then kill them to save on food' and nobody'd stop you but I can't say I'd recommend it."

Permalink

“I hate this world and everything about it.”

Permalink

"...anything you want me to write down for you to study today before I go home?"

Permalink

“Yes, how do I tell people that I’m aware I might be delusional but I’m going to keep believing it because the delusion is less crushingly depressing than anything else.”

Permalink

"In those words?"

Permalink

“I don’t care.”

Permalink

He shrugs and translates it for her and writes it out in transliteration.

Permalink

“Thank you.”

If no one needs her for anything she’s going to sit here and be upset and frustratingly useless until the next mealtime.

Mealtime is bread and peanut butter and mixed fruit compote and a tiny portion of lobster.
