Default "Hello, past me!"

Present Me: "Hey, man! Here's the latest Pokemon game. Congrats, you're now the coolest kid in the playground."

Past Me: "...But... nobody plays Pokemon anymore."

Present: "Who cares? It'll mean you're unique! Look, it has a touch screen and everything. Fancy! Now fuck off, I'm gonna go play some Red Alert 3."

Past: "GASP! You said a bad word! I never want to grow up like you!"

Present: "Resistance is futile, boyo. Now enjoy the bounty your future self has given you! I dunno, give it to Nintendo, let them reverse-engineer it and advance handheld electronics a few years. Do whatever. I'm going back to the future where the USA has a black president and we just recently had a test launch of a space ship that's part of a program to create colonies on the moon."

Past: "...I bet you don't even have superpowers or anything."


This topic is about how the conversation would go if you were to meet yourself in the past. Time paradoxes can be simply ignored in the name of progress! I just hope that this thread doesn't erupt in an orgy of angst and disappointment.

Yes but see I am too lazy to dig up the sources I plagiarize.

I can sympathize with that.

I would tell young me to develop some study skills. That's it. And maybe the 'not special' thing.

To be fair, in terms of who I was as a person outside the internet, I was actually exactly who I wanted to be. I just didn't realize it till, well, I was older. Funny how that works.

It would be like talking to my self literally. I really didn't change enough for there to be much of a surprise in the conversation except for maybe past self going hyper over all the beyblades, yugioh cards, and video games I obtained over the years along with my vastly improved drawing skills.

I can't help but think any conversations with any one of my past selves (I have four, or nearly four, major stages in my life so far) would end up with me dragging sensitive information out of myself and screwing everything up. Something like:

High School: You look like me! Only with facial hair. Damn!

Present: Yeah, I still have a friggin' X on my face, but I can get away with the goatee.

High School: So how many years in the future?

Present: Five.

High School: Shit. >.0; Well, how's pharmacy going?

Present: Great.

High School: *stern look*

Present: Yeah, don't expect to get better at lying. Do you think Pharmacy is worth it?

High School: I haven't thought about doing anything else in years. It's chemistry. I'm good at chemistry.

Present: Do you think you'll like it?

High School: Of course! It's something I'm good at and that I like!

Present: Then go into pharmacy. Everything I've done is worthwhile.

High School: Where do I end up really?

Present: ... Computer programming. But go into pharmacy school. You'll get accepted at the school you want. It's a good experience. You'll do a lot of growing.

High School: Are you happy where you are?

Present: Happier than I've ever been in my life. But it wouldn't have any meaning without what I had before. Enjoy the cathedral.

I'm gone from here for good. This place gave me many memories to take with me and shaped me greatly. I still care about you guys. I just can't stay.

Oh, I forgot about all the cryptic little things you have to say to your past self! Gotta leave them wondering what it all means, naturally. Of course, half of what I would say would have NO meaning whatsoever, just to keep myself on my younger toes.

Just gotta hope they don't misinterpret it horribly at a critical moment. Does it count as suicide if you kill yourself in an alternate timeline?

Present Me: "Oh, hey past-me. Wow, your hair is a fucking mess." *Sniff Sniff* "And you smell bad."

Past me: "Piss off. Can't you see you I'm trying to read this book whilest wallowing in self-pity because I can't a girlfriend instead of writing that essay assignment for English that's due tommorow."

Present Me: "Great, I'm sure this path you've decided for yourself will do everything to help your social life and not negatively effect your grades at all. What are you reading anyways?"

Past Me: Ogre, Ogre.

Present Me: "What the fuckity flim-flam?! You're reading a Piers Anthony book?!"

Past me: "What's wrong with that?"

Present Me: "If you have to fucking ask-! Forget this, you're a lost cause. I'm going back further."

*Time Travel Noise*

Present Me: "Ah, here we are! O'ahu circa 1990. I can meet my 3 year-old self and build a better me from the very start. Hey, there I am! And I'm blonde and wearing a bath towel like a cape for some reason. Whatever. Hey, little me! Stop running around like a child possessed for two seconds, I have some life lessons to impart!"

Past me: "No! None shall stop the Masked Nin!" *Pees on everything*

Present me: *Face-palm followed by weary sigh* Ugh, maybe I could try elementary school me... if he weren't a thoughtless, lazy moron loaded to the gills with ritalin. Y'know what, screw this. I have the power to travel through time and space! I'm going to tear Hitler's mustache right off his face and then try to hook up with 1960's Eartha Kitt. Later!" *Time Travel Noise*

Past me: *Pees on neighbor's car* "Hmm, did something happen?"

Neighbor: "MY CAR!"
