Dialogue bit – notes left in my head

“Schöne Diana:

As much as I do enjoy the possibility of shooting myself in the head at your behest, I must protest. Murder-suicide pacts are most unseemly, particularly for a married woman. As gratifying as I would find it to follow you into death as you take me with you into the spiraling hell in which we both belong, I suggest we attempt some other form of diplomacy. Boxing gloves, perhaps?”

Sometimes characters wander into my head and leave me notes. This was one today. It makes me want to turn around and yell, “What is going ON in my subconscious? Do I need to pull my cranium over?”
