Push. Considering it's Sinon, I got a feeling she'd do it anyways. Keeping out of sight would keep my life expectancy up, at least.

You get to live in any fictional world of your choosing, and you have complete immortality no matter what sort of universe it is.

BUT

If you try to help any character do anything, or otherwise change the plot in any way, your immortality is revoked, and you and that character will die.

No. I can already play the guitar. Badly, yes, but playing it with my tongue seems like an incredibly bad idea if you know that plucking guitar strings hurt your fingers after a while. Cutting your tongue on a string while it aches at the same time???? Noooo thank you.

You get isekai'd into the anime world

BUT

You find out that all of the "dere" Waifus and Husbandos such as yanderes and tsunderes arent as fun to be with as you originally thought.

[up]x2 Hard pass, there. Being a Stock Shōnen Hero doesnít really appeal to me, especially given that the amount of anime Iíve even watched (and enjoyed) is rather small, and Iím not in the business of lusting after any characters in any of the ones I have seen, so.

[up] Despite not really being one for Celtic punk Iíd probably press it just for the benefits of not having to worry about my damn Circadian rhythms. Keeping myself from inverting my schedule completely is a Herculean challenge, and if the Murphys are my solution, so be it.


A story youíve written gets a big-budget adaptation for theaters and gets tons of positive buzz from film festivals and fans

but

it ends up tanking at the box office, overshadowed by the Mouseís latest live-action remake or whatever

Eh, it's not like I can become more of a clean freak than I already am, the side effects probably won't be that horrible. Push.

You can perform D&D style rolls to increase the success of any of your actions in real life.

BUT

Most of them are crit fails.

Yeah, I'd push it. It would make the situation much more funnier if I ever did roll a crit success.

You get sent to the D&D world and get to go on awesome adventures with your friends

BUT

You start at Level 1 and your character stats are completely randomized. Including your cantrips, race, etc.
