The XaW Files parody follows the X Files series structure, so there are 9 chapters as there were 9 series of the X Files. It also follows the episodes structure, and there were 24 episodes in Series 3. So with only a few episodes to go, and a couple more countries to visit, the greenYgrey… continues contemplating…
Chapter 3 Episode 20: Buckcrunch 2
I surface wondering
if I have swum very far
before wondering where I are
a whole different
song to be sung
in open water now
a whole different lake-game…
Seagulls Duelling at Dawn
I rested on the surface and thought.
I wondered if I was suffering from the writing equivalent of nitrogen narcosis, or its more poetic name: raptures of the deep; or as it’s known in the greenYgrey world, nitrogenYnarcosis.
The creation of a genY in the middle reminded me of a non-classic episode in Grey’s classic fantasy travel ramble across all parts of Australia Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps, when a curry genie was summoned in the small outback town called Karijini.
NitrogenYnarcosis made me think of the night and daY of the last episode, and how I’d realised there was a Y in daY, and not in night. Now, for the first time, I saw a g in the middle of night, and remembered that was my most important letter until Y rose to prominence… in the middle of my name.
I heard Neil Young’s Greatest Hits start again, after starting to write again soundless, without doing it myself, like things turn themselves on in the X Files and such mysteries, although it could be a YouTube pause time limit I don’t know about?
It inspired me to remember The Shining’s redrum, redrum (murder backwards) script… Nightynight already existed before, dayday, day and night, night and day, daynight, nightyday, Nightynight, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite… bite… bite… Nightynight… that’s all right, don’t worry about Love’s sight…
Here I am trying to disprove the supernatural and then possibly strange things happen. At least, I write it happened. You don’t even know if anything happened at all; only those who know YouTube has a pause limit, if it does, will believe it happened, and they might criticise my YouTube ignorance, if precise and/or kind, or my general ignorance if judgemental and/or cruel. And Negatives with the same level of YouTube ignorance will either call me supernatural or scoundrel!
I turned in on myself, thinking I could no longer stay on the surface. I dove once more into the water, deeper and deeper, to escape what is above, to look for what is below, well below the surface.
Not to stop writing, or even thinking, but to try and enter another reality… or as it’s called in this book, another episode.
Narcosis while diving (also known as nitrogen narcosis, inert gas narcosis, raptures of the deep, Martini effect), is a reversible alteration in consciousness that occurs while diving at depth. It is caused by the anesthetic effect of certain gases at high pressure.
