“You are not! You’re a slave, a bound helpless slave to one thing in the world, your imagination.”

wow I’m popular!!! haha yes I know. I’ve been considering for, like, two years at this point. One day. But I don’t think right now. Between this and Facebook and work and my approaching mental breakdown, it’d be exhausting

Leah, this is Scott. I'm dead. You know this. I'm sure you are a very nice woman. Obviously you are very intelligent, caring, beautiful. But, alas, we can not be together. Maybe in another life, or time. I really appreciate you defending my character to those who would label me a drunk and other horrendous things I've seen around the Internet. I admire you. You have amazing potential. Please, move on from me and give reality a chance, like I wish I would have. - F. Scott p.s. I adore your tat.
