I was planning to write it, and work the echo trope in once we get it.
(Hey, that's kind of what I did with Todd-- I already knew what I was going to write before we found out what trope he needed)

I'm going to do this by the book. I won't let Silver get a chance to catch me slipping up.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

I'm gonna suggest here how to deal with the refic. We should probably talk to Mr. A about it, and I know you guys already brought it up to him and he said that if need be he would release his info, but until then I think our best bet is something like this:

We write a refic for Gulliver while getting LJS to write a certain letter. He writes the letter for us, and when Gulliver makes it home, he finds this letter waiting for him and also another one from the captain of ANOTHER ship. The letter is from LJS with a challenge to come find him or something.The ship captain is just contrived coincidence. Then we send LJS back into his story with some kind of treasure map or something, leading to an island off somewhere and a riddle or a hint of some kind (because that's just how treasure maps are) that Gulliver can be found there as well. He is near a port city, and he can just set off to go gather up a crew and go find Gulliver and the first treasure on the island and then set off to sail the high seas and get rich.

Boom done. Note, that is only a suggestion to give you an idea of what I'm thinking of, though you are totally welcome to use it in a story. I think, however, Mr. A may be more helpful shortly, if we can convince him to release the information.

Well, depending on what Mr.A says I think that's a brilliant idea.
If you ever need to ask the questions "Am I needed? Should I help them?" The answer is always yes. Always.

Actually, that works regardless of Mr. A's answers as it only involves lampshades and not direct summons of the characters in each others's stories... Even if we send them one at a time because the timelines from fiction's side are not tied to ours.

I actually suggested that in the chatroom when Qara got the response from Silver.

I know. One of you recalled that I had said something about it earlier, so I clarified just in case people had forgotten. I was agreeing with you.

Well, it seems that LJS is starting to complain about Gulliver's world-sickness.
Apparently, slightly less weird than most of you.

He's said he won't deal with me anymore, because he doesn't trust me. I'm hurt. Wounded, even. Ha.

Technically, this in no way stops any Silver refic, since my plan has come from me alone and he has no reason to distrust any of the rest of you.

Still, I have a plan for this, just for the heck of it, and because I refuse to call this round with him a draw.

Qara I am so proud of you right now. :gurt:

LJS' reaction was absolutely priceless, not going to lie.
Not a distress call. Honest.

I feel sorry for him, especially now that Mr. A says that the crossover is impossible. :cry:
I'll keep looking for the loopholes.

Tweeted him suggesting my help. I'm not sure what business he may possibly have here (and we can't be sure he's still in Russia). But, with elephants.

So I, uh, wonder where LJS has been flying.

I'd ask, but... you know. Not exactly his favourite person to talk to.

I asked, but he doesn't seem to be answering. Everything he does it's a mystery lately >.<
Why should we do the right thing?
-Well... because it's the right thing to do, there's no other good reason.

Am I a bad guy trying to be good, or a good guy trying to convince himself that he's not the bad guy?
