Episode 948: The Somnambulant Chronologist

December 21st, 2012.

Ibsyn Vale won’t kill himself. He can’t. Why? He’s displaced. Time is linear for him. But, to any and everyone else, he seems to constantly say things out of order. In reality, he’s popping in and out of one timeline: appearing at random points along it.

He does so by “falling asleep” – a process in which, by falling backwards and slamming into the ground, he shifts into another time period. The only apparent pattern is that it’s always “future, past, present…in that order. I see what’s going to happen, I see what did happen and then, inexplicably, I’m right back where I started…well, a little more banged up than usual…”

Mr. Vale attempts to make friends, via knowing what they’re gonna say before they say it. “That doesn’t go over too well. Especially when I spend most of my time trying not to sound pretentious.”

Ibsyn constantly “predicts” political outcomes, though his warnings constantly go unnoticed. Relegated to obscurity, Ibsyn rides cargo ships in the Pacific: helping modern day pirates pilage “…a broken, sad, capitalistic empire…”

Main Characters:

Ibsyn Vale – separated from his wife…who’s on permanent leave as a “Doctor w/o Borders”. His motivation isn’t from her absence. On the contrary. Their separate lives are wonderful. He just wants to close “the final chapters of his past.” Ibsyn currently lives in NYC.

Ian – told that Oliver and Clint are “in the back of your mind…and they shouldn’t be there. They’re very real. As real as you or I. Hopefully…one day…your mind will finally be free enough to deal with the extra company…”

Jonathan the Maintenance Man – Currently, Ibsyn’s only tie to reality. Jonathan checks up on him by opting to fix things in his apartment that are never broken. Not for the sake of comic relief, but out of genuine concern.
