I will play absolutely NO part in this whatsoever. No way. Juat no.
Could you link him to the Awesome Moments page? You totally have to link him to the Awesome Moments page...for Holmes!

Uhhh Scarab? I really DON'T want him to see the TWWF pages, for obvious reasons. I'm counting on him seeing enough other stuff there to not find it.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

Why would linking him to the Awesome Moments page connect him to The Wall Will Fall page? Seems kind of unlikely. :?

Yes, but "Unlikely" may very well be Quixote's middle name.

Oh I thought you meant the TWWF awesome moments page. Sorry... go ahead and link him to that, then.

If the GMs want him to find the page, he'll fuind the page. I mean, I linked Adam and someone else linked Joan, so...
Could someone link him The DQ page on TV Tropes?
In life, he suffered from a sense of unreality, as do many Englishmen.

Well.

Oh, Brad brought me something called a rubix cube to help pass the time. Solved it in less than a minute. Back to cats.


One might be tempted to write this off as Don Quixote being awesome, but I think we've discovered something about fictionals. They come from worlds of narrative convenience and contrived coincidence, where things line up and fall into logical patterns more often than not. Creating order from disorder is easy for them. After all, it's part of the creative impulse that brought them into existence in the first place.

Not that I think this will be a plot point or anything. I'm just intrigued by the possibilities.

Oh. I just though that, given the quote on Quixote's section header, he was quite intelligent, despite his, you know, quixotism.

This tweet happened earlier.

I think we can all agree that we deserved this for linking him to TVTropes.

So they go against the natural increase of entropy. :shock: Not just little pockets of order, but fully contradicting a law of physics. Just speculation, but maybe this is some of the danger fictionals pose to our universe, why Mr. A is so worried about them remaining here.

Why do I have the feeling that this cat will ALSO be polydactyl?

I assume that after Shelley's successful fictionalization, we'll be able to do it again with Catcho Pawsa.

...And, maybe we should try fictionalizing Binky, too? Or would that be too much? After all, Quixote would already have Rocinante. Does he need another horse? Would it make the story more fun?

(We can't even start the refictionalization process until we get his second Echo, so maybe I'm getting ahead of myself.)

I'll quote just to bring this to attention... I mean, that he could resolve the Cube in less than a minute is fine... Then the police horse was just around the corner waiting for him, and now the cat he -just asked for- drops on his lap?! I mean... Come on, there must be something going on here.

From Mimsy, at my bidding: Neko, Mao, Shamisen, Yoruichi, and Sakamoto. All anime references, of course.

Good options. I suggested Milo. No idea why. After realizing her gender, I suggested Mona. Again, no idea why.

I'm gonna say Neko, because it's a girl. Yoruichi works fine too.

Update: The cat's name is now Queenclaw.

He must really like the fantasy books... Queenclaw is a Tamora Pierce reference.
