Tales from Planet Print #1

Tales from Planet Print is a new feature* on the blog. It centres around the daily lives of books here on Planet Print, and the sorts of things they get up to when they think no-one is looking. Each week involves different books and the different situations they get themselves into. At Planet Print, we believe all books are entitled to freedom and happiness. We stand for justice and we stand against shelving. Free books are happy books. 

Scarlet: Hey Adorkable! What's up?
Adorkable: Fight me.
Scarlet: ...What?
Adorkable: Fight me!
Scarlet: What the hell! Why do you want me to fight you?
Adorkable: Look. I've been training. Self-defence. You never know when a hardcover is going to sneak out and jump you.
Scarlet: That is such crap, Adorkable. Hardcovers aren't all bad. They do have this superiority complex, but some of my best friends are -
Adorkable: WHATEVER. Will you just fight me so I can see if I've improved?
Scarlet: No.
Adorkable: Did you just refuse?
Scarlet: I did.
Adorkable: I should have known YOU'D never agree to this.
Scarlet: What is THAT supposed to mean?
Adorkable: I mean, just look at you. That dagger you have, God, what is that? I bet it's not even real.
Scarlet: Why you little -

Summer: Hey guys! Er...what are you talking about?
Adorkable: Scarlet won't fight me because she's scared she'll lose and her precious dagger will break.
Scarlet: OH IT IS ON. That is it. Let's get this over with. Summer, you judge and decide who wins the fight.
Summer: ...What? Guys, what are you talking -
Adorkable: Yeah, Summer, you judge. And be sure to take a picture when I win!
Scarlet: Oh you arrogant little -

Scarlet: Take that, you idiotic princess!
Summer: Oh my God...
Adorkable: Owwww. You cheated! Cheater! I didn't know we were starting!
Scarlet: Cheater? Please. That's not what's going on here. What's going on is that you SUCK.
Scarlet: Yeah, and how's that working for you? Weighed down, stuck on the floor, aren't you?
Adorkable: You are so mean, Scarlet. And take a shower, you smell like the forest.
Scarlet: Oh, do not mess with me. I've already got you down and injured, do you WANT me to rip your pages out?

Summer: ENOUGH. Scarlet, you win, okay? Now stop it.
Scarlet: Fine. If I have to.
Adorkable: She did not win. She cheated. You traitor, Summer!
Summer: What? I'm the only one who -
Scarlet: I totally won. You do realise you're lying on the floor, crying like a baby right?
Adorkable: You suck.
Scarlet: My dagger says hello.
