My Name Is Dan

Hello everyone! AnnDrew here. Jess has this crazy idea—

I told you, don't call me that anymore. And it's not crazy.

That's him, by the way. Anyhow, he's got this idea that we're to call him Dan now. I told him that's silly, but he won't listen, of course.

It's not silly, it's my middle name. Jess is a girl's name.

No, it's your name. We've always called you Jess.

My name is Jesse Daniel. You've always called me Jess.

Okay, fine, then. It's your nickname. But seeing as I'm your best friend, I'll call you whatever I like, Sue.


Alright, Dana.

*rolls eyes*

Guys, guys, knock it off. You're friends, remember?



Oh, come on!

Sorry. Habit.

Wait, we actually have to call him that?

Yes, you do.

Oh. Well, I still like Dana better.



Hi, Alex.

Oh, hey, Alex!

*glares in Alex's direction*

Where've you been? We were starting to wonder if you'd show up.

Show up to what?

We're writing a post on Jessy's blog.

Or fighting one.



Not you. Ann.

*looks suspiciously at Jess* Didn't you tell him?

Tell him what?


*ignores her*

Jesse Daniel Parker, you—

Calm down, it's fine.

Hmph. *eyes Jess pointedly*

What are we posting about?

Oh, that. We already did. We were talking about how Jess wants us to call him Dan now.

He does?

Well, you certainly make sure Alex knows everything, don't you, Dan.

I hardly see him.

Guys! What did I say earlier?



Sorry, Jess.


Um, sorry, Dan.




Fine. Sorry.

Friends? *extends hand to Dan*

Since when were we not friends?


Good. I think.

Let's go for pizza. I'll buy.


*everyone looks at Dan*


Aren't you coming?

Uh, sure.

Oh, come on. It's time for lunch, anyway.

Yeah, I'm coming.

*AnnDrew and Alex leave the room*

What have you got against Alex? You aught to be nicer to him, and AnnDrew, too, for that matter.

Yes, ref.

*sigh* Let's go eat.

*Dan follows Jessy out the door*


  1. I'm not sure what I just read but it was funny. Did you decide to change Jess' name or something?

    1. I'm afraid I didn't do the greatest job with this post. I glad you found it funny, though, since that's what I was going for.

      Um, kind of. I don't really like it—I don't think it suits him—but he just won't listen. Characters. At least I know his middle name now! (I didn't before.) I do like his full name. Just not calling him Dan...

      Thanks for your feedback! I really appreciate it.

    2. Oh yes I found it very funny.
      Characters indeed. I've had a few swap names and its just soul crushing lol.
      Welcome :)

  2. Is this from a WIP? Are these your characters speaking? I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON!!!

    1. Yes, they are all characters from my current WIP speaking. Except for the words in the default color — that's me.

      A friend of mine does this with her characters, and those are some of my favorite posts. So I figured I'd give it a try. Seems she's done a much better job of it, though... I should have had AnnDrew explain at the beginning or something. I'll remember that for next time!

      Jess is insisting that I call him Dan now, but I don't like it. I don't think it suits him. But he's insisting. So I let them write this post about it.

      I am glad, however, that he's finally told me his middle name. I'd begun to believe he didn't have one. And I do like Jesse Daniel Parker as his full name.

      Yes, my characters talk to me in real life. I guess I've got imaginary friends, after all... though, they don't always seem imaginary!

      Okay, tell me if that even made sense, or have I just confused you more?

      Thanks for muddling through all of my randomness and daring to leave a comment, brave soul.
