Sainga and Silvia

Characters: man, me

I was reading a Wikipedia page, along with some source code regarding AAC. The account that had last edited the page was called "account2" and I was actually spurred by this into lucidity, because I realized I wasn't editing under my own name.
Eagerly I clicked on the "recent news" section of this alternate-universe Wiki to see the headlines. But the web page went flying out of my field of view and scenery went dashing by as if I were looking out the window of a car. A quote was then read aloud and superimposed on my field of view, it was attributed to someone named "Saïnga" (with the umlaut) and I only got the gist of it--something about the nature of the voices that came to her and told her things.
At a later point I was conversing with a man and asking him how I might interface with the people I talk to in dreams in waking life.
man: "I want to stress that it can be very disturbing to see people in a room that others aren't seeing."
me: "I'm aware of this, and that's fine."
man: "Your coworker [name] has a sister, and her name is Silvia. She has skills in this regard."
Note I asked this coworker and he does have a sister, but her name is Natalie. I didn't inquire further.
Next I was looking over a large diagram, which was a map showing how "disease vectors" had carried some kind of plague around the United States. It had a table on it describing the tremendous death toll, breaking down the numbers into various categories.
But here's the odd part. It had a special section for how many "monsters" had died--Spaghetti Monsters, Bigfoot, etc.--and nearly all of those numbers were zero. I didn't have long enough to make out which of the very few numbers in the monster death toll table were non-zero.
Currently I am experimenting with using Disqus for comments, however it is configured that you don't have to log in or tie it to an account. Simply check the "I'd rather post as a guest" button after clicking in the spot to type in a name.

The accounts written here are as true as I can manage. While the words are my own, they are not independent creative works of fiction —in any intentional way. Thus I do not consider the material to be protected by anything, other than that you'd have to be crazy to want to try and use it for genuine purposes (much less disingenuous ones!) But who's to say?
