Well, thanks Mr. A. I would appreciate that.

This thread is pretty unpopular, considering that Gulliver doesn't require much attention. And that's what I wanted to say - let's leave it this way. He may travel around the world all he wants - eventually he'll leave enough echoes and we'll talk to him about sending him home.
That's sooo not going to happen, right?

His latest entry makes me feel really sorry for him though. At least he has John with him, otherwise I'd honestly be really worried.
Not a distress call. Honest.

Meta: considering that they have to have different echoes, I think they will part. Maybe John had an ulterior motive in coming to England.

So someone told Gulliver about Swift's book.

He wants more information about the book-- maybe we should give him a wikipedia link?
Also, he made some reference to the fact that nobody comments on his blog anymore. Made me feel bad. We need to give him some more Gulliver-love.

I'll make one of my usual speeches shortly, once I have the time. If anyone else feels like doing it first, though, be my guest.

Somehow I'm having problems with having small talk with the fictites. Can't post anything not to the point. :( Maybe it's my Suspension of Disbelief failing... but I've never thought them to be real anyway. :?

Just talk to him like he's one of us. You're only trusting by faith that none of us are just personas being controlled by some random stranger. It's really no different.
If everyone would just agree with me, there would never be any problems.

Commented, linked to the wikipedia page, and mentioned the fact that Sicon would send a lengthy reply. And I openly admit my potential fictitiousness. It encourages the possibility of crossovers.
Apparently, slightly less weird than most of you.

Ok, now John Silver found his book. Given his smarts, he'll probably take some action soon. Maybe they'll turn to us. Anyway, I think their period of irrelevance is coming to an end.

Wall of Text now up. I swear though, if they keep totally ignoring us...

Well, I'll just get really mad. Anyhow, to forestall that, I added in a hook to open dialogues in the hope that it will increase the chances of a response.

Nice wall of text, Sicon. I approve.

...Also, I spent my day of frustrating offline-ness productively: I finally re-read Treasure Island. Except now I'm even LESS sure of what to think about Silver. On the bright side, I'll be more able to refic him when the time comes (soon, please!).

And now we know that he doesn't read our comments. And knowing is half the battle.
Sorry about your wasted wall of text, Sicon. :)

Someone needs to assemble that thingy. I think it can be assembled jigsaw-style, but omeboy said it should be printed and folderd. I can't do it now. Too sleedpy. :(

Also, apparently Sicon's Wall of Text was tl;dr.
If no one objects, I can try to comment with the Laconic version.


I hope you don't mind, but I sent him an even more laconic version. Short, sweet and two the point. There is no way Silver will be able to not read it.

Let it be known that that was a dick move by the characters...

Just saying. Whatever. I'll make sure you guys didn't miss anything, though I suspect you did great.

So... New post from Gulliver.
And speaking of jerk moves, what's with Silver's Blatant Lies to Gulliver that no one's commenting? What's he playing at? Is he trolling Gulliver? Has Morgana gotten to him?
Forget Silver; on the meta level, why are the GMs doing that to us? What are they playing at? (do they want us to leave him a phone message? Or are they just telling us that we can't consult Gulliver on his refic?)

Also, is it bad that my first thought when he started going on about that wardrobe was Narnia? I blame the witch.

...I don't trust that young man. What's the betting his "aunt" turns out to be Morgan?

Also, it REALLY scares me the way that the blog post ends mid-sentence. Even though he MUST have gotten out safely in order to write up and scan the blog entry.
