“Fiction!” Thalia’s voice stamped its foot. “The librarians don’t think we’re real? Isn’t our book supposed to be in the section of the library that uses the Dewey Decimal System?”
“Huh… Fiction.” Calliope smiled at Typist’s name on the library shelf.
“Whatever works. WE know we’re as real as the nose on Typist’s face, let others believe what suits them.” Urania combed through Readist’s file of book-notes. “Here… Ian Leslie quoted philosopher Richard Rorty in his book Curious. ‘Fiction is a superior tool to reason when it comes to bringing people together.’”
“Well then…” Thalia twirled, “…fiction it is!”
