Strange Case of Simon
This was written on July 23, 2016. I love Adventure Time, and this is a reference to Simon’s backstory. Forgive me for the horrible formatting LOL.
Mortality. I am desperate to find it, to grasp once again what I’ve had before, to reunite with the lover I’ve only ever loved once more. The world is coming to an end if not, the beginning of its rebirth. Wars are waging, mystics occurring, death seeking for friends, and havoc just everywhere. But my stand is different. My becoming, no one will ever understand. Even I, don’t understand.
The crown is to blame. The crown is the culprit. I should have just let it be in the hands of the man from Northern Scandinavia, but instead, my curiosity reigned over everything. No, it’s not what it seems. I never knew. If only I knew. I never believed in superstitions, now I am the epitome of magical manipulation. The crown is to blame, please understand that this is all against my will. The crown is to blame.
I hear voices only I could ever witness. Nobody else knows. I see shadows of mystery, the silhouettes of despair and loss, and the past. They’re mocking me. They’re laughing maniacally. They’re controlling me. Make it stop, please. Don’t make them hurt me.
Don’t let me hurt you.
I remember. Through fragments of the memories of my true self, I do. The crown gave me something. As soon as I put it on, I started floating. My mind was in another state, my hands were cold, and so was my heart. I became the ruler of ice and the wizard of insanity. Oh no. Betty, did you see? What was it that you’ve seen? Tell me, please Betty. Answer me. Don’t leave me be.
Why? I don’t need this power! I don’t need shards of ice forming by the request of my will! If this is your gift, then it’s a curse to me! Gunter do something! What? What’s a Gunter? I AM LOST. I HAVE NO IDEA BUT JUST PLEASE TURN ME BACK TO WHO I WAS. I AM SIMON I AM NOT THE ICE KING!
I am… Simon. I am… Simon. I am…
going to capture your princesses, helpless as they are. They’re mine. They’re all mine! I AM THE PERSONIFICATION OF POWER AND RAGE AND CHAOS AND DESPAIR. I AM DARKNESS! I AM MISERY! I AM SORROW! I AM GRIEF! I WILL RULE OVER THE KINGDOM OF ICE! I AM LONELINESS!
As my mind still has a portion of who myself is, it seems that it has lost the ability to control reality. But I only have one wish.
The king is not me. The crown has taken over me. Everyone, please understand. I only did it because of my love for Betty.
I rest my case.
