Mirror Visit - October 23, 2012

On October 23rd, 2012 The Mirror entered the CaughtNotSleeping chat room, first as an unnamed guest and then as "arealname"; a joke on butterfly Loxura's request that guests have 'actual names'. Butterfly Satyrus was under a similar name, unaware that "arealname" was the Mirror. This behavior on the part of the mirror seems to be a reaction to his assertion that he is able to speak normally now, due to the actions of the Butterflies.

The mirror often writes in text that was backwards and upside-down, although for this conversation his text was standard barring a single sentence (which will be noted for posterity). In this log their entire text will be written in standard, for the sake of clarity. Butterfly names will be substituted for usernames; and logs have been edited for the sake of clarity. Personal information has been redacted.

Guest-235962 enters the chat
Loxura: And guests here are acting suspicious seeing as there are a few just lurking in chat. If you are going to lurk here, why not just have an actual name?
Guest 235962 changed nickname to "arealname"
Loxura: Oh hello there guests! Have you talked on here before? We we know who you are?
arealname: Not likely
Loxura: Well that's very suspicious.
Tarquinius: Espionage~~~
Loxura: What are your thoughts on the situation?
arealname: what situation?
Loxura: Well I'm not going to tell you am I? If you're here you should have an idea about it all and have something to comment about.
Satyrus is under the guise of "Guest_329802", unbeknownst to the rest of the chat, and playing along.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): and I don't need to comment.
Loxura: Well that's certainly vague.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus):don't need to be vague, I actually don't need to comment.
Loxura: If you are who I think you are, I mean you do hate us so it's expected…
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): I could never hate you. You're amusing.
arealname: Hate is a very strong word.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): I'm the nicest person you could ever hope to meet really. Well, I'm not who you think I am though.
arealname: Nor am I.
arealname: Why call yourself "paradox"? (this is a reference to Loxura's username)
Loxura: I call myself paradox because my name is paradox, why are you just lurking on chat?
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): cause I'm doing other things and i didn't expect to be speaking. just wanted to listen to people talking.
arealname: as I call myself arealname as my name is arealname.
Loxura: No, you misunderstand what I said.
arealname: enlighten me
Phlogea: This is all very cryptic.
Loxura: Well I'm paradox because that's the name I go by. But I'm not going to tell you the deeper meanings of that because I don't know who you are.
arealname: then you have no right to ask of others
Loxura: Well you were asking for the meaning of the name, I was merely asking for your name
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): that's okay, i don't need to know and i gave you my reason
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): so I'm just going to go back to doing other things and listening.
arealname: so, this "situation" as you call it, what should we do about it?
Loxura: Well that depends upon a persons perception of it.
arealname: This is true.
Loxura: To at least the butterflies perspective, we're trying to help.
arealname: help who?
Loxura: Well I'm not going to tell you that because you are a mysterious guest.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): i could always tell you other guest.
arealname: please do.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): they have this notion that they can help these two called caught and natalie
arealname: But, what is the drive to do so?
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): i'm not sure it's possible but they are giving it all they can
Loxura: So why are you even sticking around then? If you don't know us.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): i am sticking around and I am acquainted with everyone here.
Loxura: Oh do I already know you?
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): me, yes.
arealname: yes. apparently.
Loxura: So I've actually met both of you before.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): Seems to be. Like I said, I'm doing other stuff and just wanted to listen. but I'm bored and this is amusing.
Loxura: so why are you here?
arealname: Here, because called here.
Loxura: So you know us and you are saying that you want us to fail…
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): I said I don't think it's possible. That's just me being a pessimist.
Loxura: Oh so you are not hoping we fail?
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): Not so much, no.
arealname: What if this caught and natalie do not deserve to be helped? What if you are mistaken.
Tarquinius: The butterflies are taking their risk by helping them.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): Helping others is a good instinct.
arealname: Your response is interesting "rabbit" thought, a bit two faced perhaps.
Tarquinius: If they feel that's right and it turns out not to be its there choice to make. They knew it'd be dangerous.
Guest_329802: (Satyrus): I'm actually please you are trying.
arealname: Not here, "rabbit".
Tarquinius: Oh?
arealname: Have you voiced these concerns with them? That they may simple "misunderstand"?
Tarquinius: I have, they don't listen.
arealname: Shame
Tarquinius: They refuse to see as I do. I can't make them change.
arealname: Well, they are a slow bunch. I thanked them for teaching us to speak…(in upside-down speech) They stay blind.
arealname: (again, upside-down) See you soon, "best friends"
arealname leaves the chat
