And gifts were bestowed upon the celebrity.
and Maru was happy.
And so the Great Fakie King continued to teach the Fakies their new skill-set:
One Fakie, however, was nonplussed.
And then it happened: Like telepathy, like flash forwarding, like 4G in the dial-up era, wordlessly, based solely on eye -contact, plans were hatched.
What happens to a Fakie created?
Does it dry up like a bather in the sun?
(like the Addams)–And then run?
Does it stink like wine and exotic cheese?
Or crust and sugar over–like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?
Even though Realies don’t often see out know of Fakies, that doesn’t mean that Nature is excluded from knowing Fakie awesomeness.
Sometimes, it’s complicit.
This is Paula:
She’s really quite strikingly attractive. However, since she was a small Fakie only political rhetoric has tickled her fancy:
Indeed, since Fakies can time travel, Paula has bent the ears of many of the greats of political history.
And despite all of this contact with great historical figures, only the rhetoric has remained. It’s as if the entirety of the substance of political rhetoric never actually existed for her.
However, in the grand scheme of things she’ll likely be fine:
Sometimes, Fakies can make themselves really Really REALLY small:
Although Fakies do always love their one connected Realie, sexually, Fakies are drawn into a different realm.
Fakies are Objectum Sexuals . This means that Fakies lust intensely after inanimate objects.
Of course, since Realies tend to control most objects in their Realie reality, this leads to a Fakie bartering system most Realies just don’t understand.
This leads to strange situations sometimes.
In general, there are a lot of things Realies may consider Fakies: funny, quirky, lovable, adorable, curious, weird, and childlike. Fakies often consider themselves simply ‘life affirming.’
However, no beings, be they Fakie or Realie, can Deny the inevitability of scarcity or the dialectics of supply and demand upon any culture. Realies tend to rely upon money as their primary method of currency allowing for some versions of barter or mercantilism.
Thus, it is that the currency of Fakies is wholly an economy based upon the Nubilissimus felinicus or “extremely young kittens”.
While ostensibly impracticable, the sheer fulfillment derived from such a system far outweighs any dearths of practicality.
Often, Realies tend to accept reality without actually embracing how unique it is every second of their existence.
Fakies, however, revel in it. Fakies pay keen attention to their Realie reality, finding humor and pleasure in not only its concrete reality but also in its outright absurdity.
Living in a Realie world may mean all sorts of absurd things Realies just fail to acknowledge a bizarre because Realies have grown accustomed to them.
But then again Fakies tend to appreciate things Realies consider useless too.
