on finally doing this...

So this face is what it takes for you to finally try your hand at telling a part of my story?

Shouldn't be surprised. Writers are a fickle bunch.

As long as you don't intend to keep me from my quest for long, this may yet work.

You be Blackbird Daddy this time 'round? I think Blackbird Mommy worked better.

And yet I'm Mordred Deschain, son o' Roland Deschain o' Gilead-As-Was. For Ka be a wheel and there be other worlds than these. *He smiles weakly.* Could thy world not cope with a broken blackbird girl to be my mother in White?

I think a little break would do you some good. I won't get up to anything while you're gone, promise.

[The most worthless and false promise ever made.]

No, no, I assure you, I'll sit on my hands and watch the grass grow until you get back.

[He laughs.]

Of course, I'm stuck here too, so I suppose it doesn't matter if you believe me or not. I've yet to see any of your companions, though; looks like it's just you and me. What a treat.

You're quite attached to me, aren't you? Frankly, I'm considering a restraining order.

[He knows that Roland probably doesn't know what that is, and wouldn't bother to obey it even if he did.]

I'll tell ya what, I'm feeling generous today. I'll keep an eye out for them, and if I see anyone, I'll let them know you're here. Maybe I could even get to know them a little better.

They know to steer clear of Randall Flagg and Walter O'Dim and Marten Broadcloak, yes. I have names and faces they've not yet seen.

Do you think they'd still know me? It certainly took you long enough to figure it out.

The boy is, certainly. As for the others, well, I suppose we'll have to find out.

[He pauses for a moment.]

Then again, if I really wanted to see them meet some tragic end here, simply placing them back in your company might just be the best way to go about it.

No, but a thing can be destiny even if you don't like it, too. You can't always get what you want.

[He says that last bit in a sing-song voice, on the off chance Roland heard the Rolling Stones song of the same name during his time on Earth. Probably not, but he didn't really care. His quips and references were for his own amusement more than anyone else's, and like a true class act he always laughed at his own jokes.]

I know ka as well as you do, Roland, and I know it doesn't end well for you and yours. Never has.

[...But he'd say that even if he saw nothing but happiness in Roland's future because, hey, it's fun to make your nemesis worry.]

[He raises an eyebrow.]

Even if that 'someone else' were me?
