Hey. I don't think I need you anymore. I'm ready to move on. These talks. Are getting less frequent. And harder to maintain. I'm looking to buy you out. Sell you to the highest bidder. Combine like Voltron. Anything of the sort.

You want to merge me with someone? Merge us?!? Like some big media conglomerate, complete with hyphens and weird logos? What if I refuse?
posted by Tin Man

It's not really your decision. I'm ready not to have you anymore. As a separate person. You're too standoff-ish. And really, what have you done for me?
posted by The Wizard

I'm the rock you've leaned on for so long. Without me, your sanity and emotional well being is at risk. Doesn't that count for something?
posted by Tin Man

Fuck that. I'm bored. I need motion. I need change. I need searchings in other directions. I'm willing to let the light shine through a little bit more. Or at least try to do all that. I'm ready to move on. All my bags are packed and I'm ready to go. I'm standing here outside your door.....
posted by The Wizard

I think you'll regret this decision.
posted by Tin Man

I never regret a thing.

It must be fun to live in a fantasy world. But best of luck to you. You'll be back I'm sure. In re-runs or special engagements. Bye Dorothy.

Bye Pooh.

How would you feel if I had to tell you something about yourself. Something that nobody else would bother to tell you. Something that would most likely hurt, and may make you mad at me? And possibly hurt our friendship?
posted by Tin Man

I think you should do it. I mean, we're friends right? Isn't that what good friends do? Tell each other the things that nobody else will? If you don't do it, who will?
posted by The Wizard

So you won't mind if I pull no punches? And just come straight out, with no tact, and tell you all the terrible things I've noticed about you?
posted by Tin Man

Not at all. In fact, I welcome it. Don't sugar coat anything. I have thick skin, I can take it. As long as it's done constructively, criticism is good. I mean, I'm sure you're not attacking me for personal satisfaction, so I know what you're going to say is only because you want me to be a better person. So I'll even thank you beforehand. "Thank you."
posted by The Wizard

Ok. Here goes.......ah fuck. Can't do it. It'll hurt too much. Maybe I'll just talk to you about it. I can't do it here like this. Online and anonymously. I need to skewer you in person. So I can see if you're really hurt or not.
posted by Tin Man

Spit it out man. I'm anxious.
posted by The Wizard

Forget it. I'll tell you later.
posted by Tin Man

Fine. Be that way. I'll just assume I'm perfect then. Until you prove otherwise.
posted by The Wizard

Isn't that what you do anyways?

A friend's definition of what a smart person is: smart is getting what you want. Knowing how to use your resources to achieve your goal. If this is the definition, am I smart?
posted by The Wizard

Hum. Well. Do you get what you want? Or does what you want only come about because you've lowered your goals and expectations? I think sometimes you're a bit too lucky and happy to be content with what's in your life. Maybe more lucky actually.
posted by Tin Man

I usually get what I want. But not really because I do anything. I don't put effort into many things. Stuff just happens and "works out." I'm on the high end of the cosmic karma circle. Everything comes up roses for me. Even in the darkest of moments. So I don't really know if I'm "getting what I want."
posted by The Wizard

This is a great definition by the way. Because all the intelligence, self control, stability and whatever else, doesn't do jack for you unless you know how to apply it to achieve something. That's a smart person. A happy person. An accomplished person. Don't you think?
posted by Tin Man

I agree. So again, am I smart?
posted by The Wizard

Crap. How should I know? Let's go with "no" so you have some room for improvement.

the wizard
our naive protagonist. think harry potter. but older. and not as cool. the wizard has feelings and emotions and all of that human bs. the wizard is lost, lonely, and curious. aren't you?

tin man
the batman to the wizard's robin, the jordan to wiz's pippen, the britney to the wizard's justin, the skipper to the wizard's gilligan, the jon to the george...yeah, you get it. the tin man is stronger, faster, and more powerful than any locomotive. but he's not real. just a heartless, soulless, practical machine. who happens to talk.
