    The infernal noise and piercing ringing of the

    Autobiography

    I've been mentally writing the same story

    for about 7-10 years now and by this point it's so complex and cliche and the characters are insanely different and it would probably not make sense to anyone but me (and sometimes not even me) if I ever write it down
