Jesus it was hard convincing Poe to write this up. She keeps talking about how it's not right, how she shouldn't be writing anything, how she'll say something wrong...but whatever. Here's what's been going on.
I do not want to blog about this. I don't want to blog at all, really. Messenger can't do it himself though, and he's asked me to do it for him. He really doesn't like being a liar, I guess. We got in a bit of a fight about it actually. Which is why I'm here writing this.
Screwtape has gotten worse. He's always scared me a little. Now he's even more intense than he used to be. He does seem a little less angry at me though, so I will take small mercies where I can get them.
After Messi's post about Eternity, Screwtape came over. I was not in the room, but I could hear them talking. Screwtape demanded that Messi take the post down, because it was just lies being spread around. He said Eternity was just trying to break him. This was a test of faith that Messi was losing.
I feel weird saying it, but I think I might agree with him. Eternity is pretty big here. He does exactly what he says he does. Even if he was just using us to forward his own goals, it seems strange to think that he would tell Messi this. That's assuming this was the real Eternity in the first place. I don't like doubting Messi, but the whole thing seems off.
He refused to take the post down. He claimed that Screwtape was just angry because his world was falling apart. They argued like this for a while, then Screwtape seemed to back down. That was when I heard a small snap, and Messi screamed. I ran into the room, but Screwtape was already gone.
That's how Messi broke his finger, and why he can't really type right now. He seems pretty upset about the whole thing, but I don't think he's going to be able to update very much until it heals. I don't think this is a bad thing. I thought that blogs would be a good thing. Really they just stir up trouble.
Still, it is sort of his job. Messenger will be back to this blog as soon as he can be.
So yeah. Screwtape broke my fucking finger because I wouldn't take a post down.
I'm going to be laying low for a bit while the situation cools and my finger heals. It hurts like hell, and you have no clue how unnatural it is to type while your ring finger is in a splint.

Edit: Okay, since I'm getting some questions, let me elaborate on a few things. I'm not having a "religious crisis." That's Screwtape, much as he'll deny it. The "test of faith" phrase that keeps getting thrown around means that Eternity is trying to get in my head. Break me down. Test me. You get it now? Good. Screwtape said the reason he broke my finger was "the cost for spreading uninformed rumors and causing dissent" or something like that. He also said that I got the good end of the bargain. My ass.
