I mean, maybe Quixote fell in love with her, that's why he is so ashamed at looking at her blog.

He kind of admitted to that after comparing her to Dulcineia... But reacted in an "I'm doing this for Tripky and won't fall to temptation!"... We all know how that goes...

Have we figured out who Hope and Mann are? There have been clues, kind of. Hope scratches at his head a lot, really hard apparently. Do you think Tripky is one of them? In fact, she mentions that Mann has lost his phone and asks her where it is. It seems that Mann is in fact Tripky.

Yes we're pretty sure that's the case at this point, I think we're just trying to figure out what to DO about it...

Obviously we tell Quixote that Tripkey (Shock! Horror!) is actually a dastardly villian and that this Tara Coulson is a damsel he needs to protect at all costs. This of course, will likely backfire spectacularly.

We tried telling him Tripky was a villain. No dice.

Foiled again! :D /how about just telling him that Tara needs protecting/rescuing? Not even hinting that Tripkey's the guy he's protecting her from?

No we tried that as well, he won't do anything unless she tells him directly.

And she probably won't pay any attention to him because she's had it up to here with kooks, and she's also not taking personal calls at work which means he probably can't reach her with Techno.

I really don't know where to go with this one until he interacts with her directly. Then we'll have a little more information to go on.

Okay, but what exactly I can say? I'm not as good as the others, I might freak her out or something.

I don't know if this was mentioned before. Admittedly, I haven't been following Coulson's blog that well or the discussions surrounding her, but this thought just occurred to me. Who else do we know likes to hack people? That's right. Could there be a connection between these stalkers and the cabal?

I thought of that, but I couldn't think of anything explicit.

Possibly. If they're willing to threaten Joan for giving Sweeney Therapy, they might be willing to do the same to Tara for similarly tame actions. However I'm not aware of any fictionals she's actively interacting with, and she was getting hacked before Quixote was in the picture.
If you ever need to ask the questions "Am I needed? Should I help them?" The answer is always yes. Always.

I'm not sure they're connected to the cabal, but it is a decent theory. Jeff Hope in particular sounds strange (always scratching his head...?) and they definitely have the creepy vibe down.

Victin, just write as if you are concerned for her. Be natural. By trying too hard to be clever, we often make mistakes.

Yeah, and it likely can't be stopped. But we can do our best to help, and I think that figuring out what's on those broken disks might be good.

Didn't we?

And she was first hacked on 5th of September. WTF began on 9th, and I don't think Cabal would have the time for that. Angelus has only made his first post when the first letter came. Unless there is some hacker character involved, I don't think there is a connection.

That's quite a broad statement. For some reason I thought he was friends with the admin, or something. :?

UPD: ...or they could hire Tripky, just like for making photos, which I've suggested. :| Makes sense, too.

And, by the way, it's not the first time they mention it.

Quixote wanted her address. Dryuna and I gave him the Arbys one. Should we also mention the Loverose apartments, across from the Starsight?

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but is Quixote aware of the fact that he only seems to have thirteen days to find her?

If not, should we make sure he knows?
It may serve to help focus him more perhaps?

It's worth a shot, though it's probably less by now. Remember, it happens on Halloween. Also, Quixote doesn't seem to be fond of using any of the information found on her blog, so he may not accept that kind of information, unless you don't mention where it came from.

Okay, I did so.
It doesn't quite help him find her, but at least we should know that he knows he has to be quick about his search.
