->I'm very convincing. People are like worm to me, and I see zero diversity. I can just completely mimic other people's speech patterns. It's funny, [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter because they were explaining to everyone how I was legitimate. Admins of huge pages, mind you. Not only that, but they trusted me thoroughly.]] All for my enjoyment. :3 [...] I love making people have zero clue what's going on. Not only did it make the other admins look like dip-shits, but it makes people not trust anything. Especially when I was pretending to be a regular person. It was complete chaos, and no one even knew it yet. [...] I've gotten pages within the first comment I've posted. I've also gotten pages that have taken weeks. If I want a page, it's mine, regardless of anything. I've gotten pages where I was pointed out to be a 'hijacker', too. I'm a silver-tongued-devil. [...] I'm just really manipulative in general. And just super charming to everyone.

In a small town like Castle Rock, all the fuse-boxes were lined up neatly side by side. What you had to do was open the boxes… and then start cross-wiring. You hot-wired a [[JerkAss Wilma Jerzyck]] to a [[TheWoobie Nettle Cobb]] by using wires from two other fuse-boxes-those of a young fellow like Brian Rusk and a drunk fellow like Hugh Priest, let us say.\\

->Let's say that some nutcase suddenly steps in here and ventilates us all with a Tommy gun. No, I'm just saying.

->We have no idea why, but this bastard is trying to massacre everyone in this speako. So let's say this sicko takes his sweet time pumping lead into anything that so much as twitches.

->And let's say - just saying, again - that there's someone standing behind the guy. The sicko wants to kill everyone in this shop, but he never, ''ever'' turns the gun on the guy behind himself. But it's not like the guy behind him's working with him or anything. The second guy's just there from the start. Acting like he's completely safe and enjoying the show, even though he shouldn't actually be safe.

->... Right. I guess I could call him something like an audience member.

->We're all living our lives real seriously, but to this second guy, everything about us is just a story up on a stage. The sicko can shoot his gun as much as he likes, but the audience isn't ever going to get hit. And even though he's nothing but an observer, this second guy keeps trying to meddle with the story.

->Y'know, there's always one of those types. The kind of guy who watches a musical and goes around talking at the top of his lungs about how good a musical was, how bad it was, and what he'd have done differently, right? Now, this second guy's pretty quiet about it, but his voice carries real far and clear. That voice just spins round and round, reaches an actor or a writer's ears, and controls their actions without them even noticing. That's how he directs the play the way he likes, from a total safe zone as an audience member.

->He's not a playwright or anything that great. An audience member like him doesn't care about others, as long as he's satisfied.

->And getting back to that story about the nutjob with the Tommy gun... Once he's finished killing everyone, the second guy'd whisper into his ear:

->"Hey, there's still one left. [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness Yourself.]]"
