* '''TomatoInTheMirror:''' It is not the world which is wrong, but ''you''. Perhaps you are - or [[WhatHaveIBecome have become]] - a [[DeadAllAlong ghost]], a [[RoboticReveal robot]], a [[CloningBlues clone]], a [[OurMagesAreDifferent magician]], or something stranger. In the end, you are not actually ''in'' or rightfully a part of the normal world. The world is normal (more or less) and works as you know it, but not you.

This knowledge is not without price, however. If you wish to [[LaserGuidedAmnesia keep it]] you have [[KilledToUpholdTheMasquerade no choice]] but to join [[TheMenInBlack us]]. You may at least take pride in that, much like a [[RagsToRoyalty pauper who discovers she is a princess]] and other [[ChangelingFantasy changeling fantasies]], you are yourself an intrinsic part of this the world behind the Broken Masquerade. Perhaps you are an heir to a kingdom, a [[PhlebotinumRebel rebellious product of its mad science]], or [[TheChosenOne destined]] to bring it into balance with the "real world".

[[ArmchairPsychologist Are you comfortable?]] Good. What we are about to reveal to you will [[MindScrew shock you to the core.]] The truth that has [[YouAreNotReady been hidden]] from [[{{Muggles}} all humanity]] will now be revealed to you. You see, the world you inhabit, perhaps even your very nature as a human, is [[{{Masquerade}} not as it seems]].
