▼: Oh? Oh, hello.
▲: JUST WHO THE HELL ARE YOU?
▼: Hm. Does it actually matter to you, Karkat?
▲: YES IT ACTUALLY FUCKING DOES
▼: If you say so. I'm Chel.
▼: That's what I said. I told you my name wouldn't matter, it's obvious you don't know me.
▼: And, in your unique position, I don't think strangers mean much to you.
▲: I GUESS NOT
▲: BUT I WONDER HOW IN THE HELL YOU GOT AHOLD OF ME. SHOULDN'T YOU BE DEAD WITH ALL THE OTHER HUMANS?
▼: That's actually very interesting.
▼: I'm not from the same Earth as John and the others.
▼: I'm sure you're familiar with alternate universes, correct?
▲: UH NO SHIT SHERLOCK
▲: MY LIFE CONSISTS OF ALTERNATE TIMELINES AND TRYING NOT TO FUCK THEM UP
▼: Of which I am well aware.
▼: So, yes, I'm from an alternate Earth. Though I don't suppose this one will be lasting much longer anyway.
▲: WHAT COULD YOU POSSIBLY KNOW OF IT HUMAN?
▲: WHY WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOURS?
▼: Jack. Duh.
▼: He destroyed the whole Bilious Slick with his Red Miles. My Earth has yet to be destroyed, but it will be soon, I predict.
▲: OH GREAT.
▲: DO YOU HAVE ALTERNATE UNIVERSE TROLLS TO?
▲: CAUSE I'M GOING TO FLIP MY SHIT IF I ENCOUNTER AND ALTERNATE ME
▼: Mm, no, your universe's versions are the only I'm aware of. And, well, this is the first contact made between humans and trolls, besides that of the human heros of Sburb.
▼: To be honest, I don't think there are any other yous, despite that being against the usual laws of existence.
▼: Eh, Sburb. It messes with a lot of shit.
▲: OH TRUST ME THERE ARE OTHER MES
▲: FUTURE AND PAST ME ARE PROOF ENOUGH OF THAT
▼: I meant outside of timelines concerned with Sburb. It's like two whole separate continuities, man.
▼: And past and future you do not count, they're just you at different temporal points.
▲: NO THEY'RE COMPLETE ASSHOLES IS WHAT THEY ARE
▼: To be fair, all yous are complete assholes, so there's that.
▲: WOW SOMEONE WOKE UP ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THEIR RIDICULOUS HUMAN BED
▲: HOW DO YOU KNOW ABOUT US ANYWAYS?
▼: Uh...long story?
▲: LONG STORY?
▼: A bit of one, yeah. Though I'd tell it if you'd be willing to listen.
▲: GO AHEAD. I HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO ANYWAYS
▼: Well, alright. Let me ask you a question, then.
▼: What is your favorite work of fiction?
▲: ROMANCE OBVIOUSLY
▲: BUT IF YOU TELL ANYONE I WILL FUCKING KILL YOU
▲: TROLL TITLES ARE TOO LONG SO I'LL JUST TELL YOU THE GENRE
▼: Okay, that's understandable.
▼: Okay, well, think of your favorite and keep it in mind while I ask you this next question.
▼: ...Karkat, how would you react upon learning that the events and characters from your favorite story actually existed in another universe?
▲: WHAT THAT WOULD BE FUCKING AWESOME
▼: My thoughts exactly, hahah.
▼: Which is why I was so ecstatic upon learning that my favorite story actually did exist in an alternate universe.
▲: WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY
▼: What I'm saying is that though that universe got destroyed, some of it's occupants escaped by playing a game that destroys worlds and created universes.
▼: And now the ones that are left are flying through a place of not time and space, on a giant meteor, along with some aliens as well.
▲: SO YOUR FAVORITE STORY..IS ABOUT US
▼: Sorry. It must be strange to hear something like that..
▼: But I swear it's the truth.
▲: YES IT'S FUCKING WEIRD. IT CAN'T BE TRUE
▲: THEN AGAIN I'D SAY A LOT OF THINGS COULDN'T BE TRUE BEFORE SGRUB
▼: If...you want proof, I could probably provide it.
▼: Because, it's online. Your story, I mean. It's a webcomic.
▼: I could provide a link to some part of the story, if you'd like.
▲: GO AHEAD
▼: Alright, then.
▼: Here's your introduction page. I thought you might like to see that.
▲: WHAT THE HELL?
▲: THAT LOOKS SORT OF LIKE JOHN
▼: Does it? Huh, I thought I sent you your page, not his.
▼: Well, still, that works too.
▲: MY HORNS ARE WAY BIGGER THAN THAT. THIS IS COMPLETE BULLSHIT
▲: WHAT IN THE WORLD THAT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE MY ROOM
▲: THAT'S MY HIVE
▲: I REMEMBER THAT CONVERSATION WITH GAMZEE
▲: HOW IN THE HELL DID THIS PERSON GET AHOLD OF ALL THIS INFORMATION
▲: THAT'S GAMZEE
▲: HOLY SHIT
