INT. LIVING ROOM - DISTANT FUTURE
Rion and Helix are sitting in their hover chairs, mid-conversation --
RION: Wait... they could kill people?
HELIX: Well they would shoot out these little things called bullets, that would fly straight at you and fill you full of holes.
RION: Holes?! Like, actual holes?!
HELIX: Big ones! Sometimes your guts would fall out.
RION: No way!
HELIX: It was total carnage.
RION: And people could buy that shit?!
HELIX: Oh they were totally legal. Everyone had them.
RION: Were they psychos?
HELIX: Pretty much.
RION: But what was the point?
HELIX: They were a fashion accessory.
RION: Get out! People would wear them?!
HELIX: On their hips.
RION: On their hips?!
HELIX: I think they had something to do with protection too.
RION: Protection from what?
HELIX: People called criminals.
RION: Oh I’ve heard of those. They were like, smelly people who never showered, right?
HELIX: According to the history books.
RION: So... did they come in different--
HELIX: Types? Sure. You had tiny ones, big ones, black ones, silver ones, ones made of gold plating.
RION: Huh... they don’t sound very tasty.
RION: And how are you meant to chew on them with all those hard bullets?
HELIX: What are you talking about?
RION: What do you mean what am I talking about?
HELIX: What is it you think we’re talking about?
RION: Ah, gum.
HELIX: What? No not gum! Gun! G -- U -- N, gun!
RION: Oh guns... Yeah they were totally stupid.
Originally I was going for something more poignant, but I find the notion of guns so...
fu•ture, n. An everlasting parade beyond the horizon
where the rainbow ends and the dreamers go to dream.
*An idea for The Future collab... If you read this little script I highly recommend doing so at a sombre pace, and with this song playing in the background.
These are both similar ideas so I thought I'd lump them together.
