Dear character:

I have put you in a novel. I am putting you in a short story right now. Yes, this very minute. I recognize that you are not the main character in either. But I think that getting to do interesting things in multiple works of fiction ought to satisfy you, and I would really appreciate it if you could keep your mouth shut if you happen to have an interesting life story. Particularly if it involves astronomy. Lalala I can't hear you. I particularly cannot hear you about the astronomy. Lala. La.

Love,
mrissa
