The councilor in prison said that I should keep a journal, so I can look at how I'm thinking. He thinks I'm a nutcase, so I guess he thought that if I read my thoughts I would realize I'm a nutcase. Anyway, it can't hurt…

Weird shit started happening today. I saw monsters, ghosts and magic doorways. Even weirder, I met a bunch of people who didn't think any of it was odd. I'll make a list so later I can look back and see if I'm right.

Tamsin: OK chick, even if she did spend most of her time stalling me so the others could check out my story. I guess if someone walked into my place and said a monster climbed in through a locked window I'd want to check it out too.

Prince Charming (real name?) I don't know how anybody could fall for his crazy hobo act. He talks like an altzheimers patient but walks like the Czar of All The Russians.

Mr. Wizard (??) Another actor, but closer to the truth. He really does seem to run the theatre. He must be like the old guys in films who collect all of the dangerous magic crap so idiots don't use it to hurt people.

Poser (??) Freakin' tough guy wannabe. Looks like half the recruits I ever say in the army. Knock the chip off and he may be OK, or he may still be a jerk. He could use a run through Basic.

I'm not really sure what to think. They're weirdos for the most part, but they don't think I'm crazy and don't seem to mind that I did time. I guess I'll see where the chips fall.

About the monsters and ghosts, I'm gonna roll with it. If I see something wrong happening, I'll stop it. If I'm not sure, I'll look into it until I am. Maybe I should get a Bogart hat and be a PI? Naah. They probably wouldn't let me have a license.

    Very, very nice. I'm impressed — I can really hear Ray's inner voice clearly.

    Methinks (a) Obediah's character arc is about to take a sharp turn, and (b) Fitz just lost his position as the hard-bitten guy of the group (not that anyone cared if he was). He'd better figure out a new role fast, or someone's gonna get hurt.

    He could use a run through Basic…
