talking to the people in my head

The characters in my book are like particularly irritating co-workers some days.

Me: Okay, I think I'm going to have you go ahead and do THIS.

Protagonist: How about NO?

Me: No, seriously.

Protagonist: COME AT ME, BRO.

Second Protagonist: What, is she trying to tell you what to do again?

Protagonist: Yeah, can you believe it?

Second Protagonist: Wanna have sex instead?

Protagonist: That sounds like a plan.

Me: Guys. GUYS. OH MY GOD, I AM NOT WATCHING THIS. PUT THAT AWAY.

Antagonist: Are you ready for me yet?

Me: (distracted) What? No, just...go back to lurking in the background like a spectre of things to come or some shit.

Antagonist: Are they having sex over there?

Me: NO.

Antagonist: Cause, it looks like they're having sex.

Me: YOU. NOW. WITH THE LURKING.

Antagonist: I never get to have sex.

Completely New Protagonist: Hey, can I get in on this?

Me: BRB. BAZOOKA BARFING.
