I was confused when I read this narration, especially since you keep talking 
about a mysterious Voice.  Maybe you could label the narration "Narrator". 
That'd give any of your characters who talk across the Fourth Wall someone to 
talk to.

Did these characters just meet?  I gather Chris has insight into the nature of 
his reality, but the others are being as casual as if they just bumped into 
their neighbors.

coercive, sullen package it was obvious that the Earth humans resented
the very idea.
