    • Very Shakespearean. I could hear it in one of his plays still inside his mind, he just never had enough time to write it down. Once again you strike it gold with your words. Sliding off a golden tongue of ink so gold, the pen pulls it up and places it down again, gently, as not to loosen a single syllable. jk
