Actually, I was going to anthropomorphize Reason into a fuzzy
male sub, and Passion as his romanticized Dominatrix, but I wasn't
so sure how that would play out here:
FoRK: "How DARE you call Master a sub!"
But in the background, I hear Passion whipping "Master" ...
"Rationalize your existence! *wpsh!* DO IT! *wpsh!* Now!
Contemplate your life without me! *wpsh!*"
He'll be like...
"Don't you Uh me! Tell me! Now! Rationalize!"
"Just SAY IT! RATIONALIZE!"
"This sounds like a start... Continue..."
She's going to get him to do the impossible,
and then whip him for an obvious logical fallacy, and then
again for insubordination.
But is it levity?,
