Modern History
During the week, I research my character by living in his house and raising his children.
Title text: During the week, I research my character by living in his house and raising his children.

Explanation

War reenactment is a hobby in which people act out a battle from some previous time period. Theoretical "real-time" war reenactment takes this one step further by having someone act out a war that is actually happening at the time.

The title text refers to how someone would research the character that someone would play in a normal war reenactment in order for a more enjoyable reenactment. Once again, the title text makes a real-time version of this, having someone actually live the life of the real-time fighter.

Discussion

When I first read this, I took Cueball's statement to also have a double meaning. "Will you /please/ stop?" As in stop fighting, stop the war, etc. International Space Station (talk) 06:07, 19 May 2016 (UTC) I read the title text as "my character" being Cueball.
