Imagine a theatre full of actors. There is a stage, the backstage, an audience seating place with a hundred red, comfy chairs. And there are actors everywhere. Theyre on stage. Theyre just behind the curtain, preparing for their next big scene. Theyre also hanging from the rafters for the fun of it because some of them are weird like that.
And you are their director.
And they dont want to listen to a thing you say.
This is what writing is. Writers are the director to any story their actors want to tell. Our job is to herd them like chickens onto the stage and make them behave.

Death is viewed with such permanence, and all things living- if they have enough of a mind- fear it. I admit that I was one mortal who did.
Now, I don't.
For I, the great Starscream, have trespassed the boundaries of life and death not once, but twice- and here I remain to tell you about it! How many can boast such a thing?

And then the lights go out, forever.
Did you know the Matrix beckons those who leave their shells? I resist the call. My purpose has not yet been fulfilled. I cannot leave while YOU rule the Decepticons, where I rightfully belong! It is MY place to rule, not yours! Do you think you have disposed of me? You are wrong. Do you he
