Cool story, bro! (People say that on the Internet, right?)


Yes, but it generally connotes lack of interest.

I think you just like stating the obvious


I like stating the obvious because whenever I stop, somebody either assumes something is obvious that is not obvious to everybody, or somebody does not find obvious what seems obvious to everybody, and complications ensue.

For example, this fact should not have been considered obvious. What was also evidently not obvious was that I'm using the obscure analogistic (that seems like a neologism to me!) metaphysic of my fictional universe i.e. the one in which "internetland", the virtual world, behaves like a real world, and the real world itself is some other parallel universe that we don't really consider while online. Which is why I've never mentioned it throughout the course of the WoM, and why you shouldn't think any further about it for the purposes of the WoM, seeing as it will never be a factor.

Thus it is entirely possible that my sister exists on internetland as a character of some sort. But seeing as she pretty much never uses the internet in real life, she does not. But you should at least have considered the possibility given how frequently we encounter "siblings" on AG itself.

Anyway, enough about my non-existent family. I'm just here to tell you that you should expect an update today. There are still a couple of outstanding entries, though.

Let us enter into discourse on the... (10 pages later) ...There are no girls on the internet.

I don't suppose you've ever read the Everworld series.

Well now you see, I thought what I just said was pretty obvious >:3

I have not. And I'm not pretending that the concept I'm using is original, either. Only that since I've never explained it here, nobody should reasonably be expected to know the specifics.

Okay okay, enough of this. I'm almost ready to update!

Before I post, let me say that I was actually very impressed with how you guys responded to the task. There were many surprises, some people went above and beyond the specifications, and everybody has pretty much responded in their own way unique to their character. Thus far this seems to be the most successful round. So good stuff guys.

After I post, don't post your stuff just yet- I have a couple of stragglers to chase up >_>
