A Quick Fix for Bleeding Hearts and Nightmares

1. There is no quick fix
2. Buckle up
3. Make peace
4. Write the origin story, make sure it all makes sense
5. Wrap it up and put a bow on it, and maybe open it up, or shake it, because we don't really know what's in there anymore, and it might be good. 
6. Play the invisible violin
7. Consult two different psychics. (Choose Candy, not Marv. Marv's voice is so gruff.) 
8. Queen of Hearts, Jack of Diamonds 
9. Integrity
10. You will put lots of gaff tape on this, and ask where the reset button is, and you will gaze into black velvet, and sit on the splintery bench, and you will look and wonder and you will squeeze each other very tightly and see exactly the shape of this, and you will let it be what it is, exactly as it is.
11. Refer to Item #1
