EMMA IS OFF LIVING, WHICH, IN THIS CASE MEANS, EMMA IS OFF WRITING. THE WEBPAGE “CONSCIENCE ROUND” HAS THUS BECOME SENTIENT, AND CONTINUES TO UPDATE. UPDATES TO TERMINATE ON NOVEMBER THE THIRTIETH.
1. Emma’s dream: September 3, 2010
I dream a girl is trying to cut my foot off. Later she chases me through the city on a motorcycle/scooter.
2. Emma’s summer camp story, written over a course of six hours (fragment #3)
They shake on it. Pike’s fingers are long and thin, like spider appendages. Toru thinks: Daddy longlegs.
3. Emma’s English project, first trimester of junior year (fragment #3)
Peacocks are generally considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful animals. Their beauty is critical to their survival, preserved throughout generations of peafowl by the magic of natural selection. But to even the trained eye, one peacock will seem just as lovely as another. A peacock does not suffer depression out of lack of attractiveness. A peacock does not end its own life. The ordinary zoo visitor will not be able to pinpoint the ‘fairest of them all’. However, it is a very simple task to rank ordinary zoo visitors, they being simple humanoids, according to their beauty.
4. Emma’s diary: June 2010 (fragment #3)
Watching the Marx Brother’s “Horse Feathers”. Someone put my out of my misery.
