[ That sure is an action figure-sized Hal Jordan floating around and smiling at his mun. He hasn't seen them motivated in ages. It's nice! ]
Hey, that's a step up. I mean that in a good way, honest. I don't even mind taking time off from the League to lend a hand, if that's your plan. I mean, I still need to get back to work at some point, and you can probably just drop me back into the timeline right where I left off. I'm assuming you can do that, since you can pull me out of it in the first place. But no, seriously, I don't mind something of a vacation. Honestly, I might need one for my own sanity. Things are getting pretty crazy on Takron-Galtos, what with the Super Buddies and all, and Firestorm's… he's kind of an ass.
[ Understatement of the year, there, Hal. He rubs the back of his neck awkwardly. ]
But that's kind of beside the point, right? Right. Point being, we need to look at our options first. Especially if I'm gonna be stuck like this. It's no big deal, really.
[ You should be ashamed of that pun, Hal Jordan. He isn't. Not one bit. ]
No, seriously, I've gotten pretty used to this by now. And maybe… maybe if I'm somewhere I don't have to be on call all the time, I can, y'know. Drop the construct once in a while. Stop draining my batteries, so to speak. Right? Bright side to everything.

Okay, yeah, "staving off death by Courage Decay for a few more months" is a shitty bright side, but it's still a bright side. Work with me here and let's pick somewhere to start. Like… where's an enterprising but out of the loop player supposed to look for game options? That's a solid baseline. We'll go from there.
