Sometimes in Discord, especially when you get a group of writers together, the chat can randomly go off the rails.

Discussions on Italian weddings, sweaty feet, orange Calabrians, time travel, bananas, and butterflies merge together into one sweet dance.

But all good things must come to an end, and the discussion trickles off and ends. My lament on that in our channel (which happened to trigger further discussion, yay.)


Conversations are fragile things, like butterflies.
Sometimes when you pet the butterfly too hard, you squish it, and it dies.
Other times it flies away on its own.
In the end, all you can do is be thankful for the time you had with the butterfly.
And then hide the evidence.

That is somehow poetic, sad, and hilarious all at the same time. I love that you captured it, @negativer.

Great conversation. Very writery way of reacting to it

"And then hide the evidence."

Classic @negativer ending... ;)



Ohhhhh, neg.
Who but you would lead with a lovely butterfly photo, lure me into the story, and then -splat! - Sometimes when you pet the butterfly too hard, you squish it, and it dies. I'm feeling like Charlie Brown and your prose is Lucy's football. Why. Why do you have to write so well. How easily I could ignore you if only you wrote like a hack!

That's beautiful, although it reminded me of some dead butterflies that were controversial...
