Make up a new character (or use one you’ve already created) and describe them only with documents like their shopping list, the main points of their divorce papers, their apartment lease, their recent Amazon purchases, and so on. Say as much as you can about the character without actually directly describing them. -- Illuminate-Prompts

This is it. This is the day I expose HACK-meyer as the fraud he is. It's the perfect plan. Let him bullshit while I play window-dressing. If he has that other half of my formula, I'll know in a second. Those military goons don't care about math, but they have a few NASA grade nerds who will.
They're bound to buttonhole him for the final half. And then I'll correct his fucking math in front of God and everyone. Show him up for the useless balding showboat that he is. And bring out my notebook from the locker as proof. It's perfect. Nothing can go wrong.
Been a while. Ten years. I feel like Odysseus, starting this up again after so long. And I feel like the world's biggest nerd for writing that analogy. Long story short, something went hellaciously wrong, and it was all HACK-meyer. I'm in the right place at the wrong time and that's the other fucking joy that is the mess of my life. While I was knocking around different realities for ten years, my world aged by five hundred. Ballpark.
I'd work out the math, but I'm damned sick of doing it at this point.
They're letting me write this because it's therapy of some kind. And they get to analyse my 'hand' or whatever for clues that I might be who I say I was. Not their fault. The people who set me on this journey made a lot of changes to me and...
Katie Walker may as well have died
ten five hundred years ago. I'm so very different now.
Plus side- they don't think I'm a demon.
Minus side- they don't think I'm a human.
Really minus side- they fucking banned hamburgers! Why, God? Why?
