That's more likely, but Gulliver didn't mention any emotional outbreaks. We still need to see his echo to confirm that, though.


Doesn't necessarily have to be the fictional's emotions. The woman's emotional outbreak could've been enough. But it is likely that it also affected Gulliver on an emotional level, even if he didn't display it physically, or think it worth mentioning in his blog.

That, I am certain.

To be honest, neither can I. Qara quoted it above.

Not out-and-out saying she met him, but implying it strongly enough to qualify as trolling, I think.

But either way, we should probably find out what really happened. Can someone ask Silver via twitter to give his perspective on the "young lady" who confronted Gulliver?


Well that's a very rude way to speak to one of the most famous literary characters of all time. And you called us rude, Sayu. Did he cheese you off or something? :|

No Twitter here, I can ask Gulliver... but I think that may not be required at this point

But I have no Idea where it's from. Which is why I'm way too confused to be of use here...

It's either moment of heightened emotion or whatever is narratively important to their story. The laws of fiction are coming through, though, so those two tend to overlap more often than not. For instance, the Witch's depression in her comic ended with her firmly deciding to help us get her back. R&J's was about their breakup, the main plot point so far. Quixote's was when he met Tara, who seems to be the driving force behind his plot, other than his own rampant insanity and Crazy Awesome.

I'm guessing it's a combination of both, personally.
Normal people are the easiest to manipulate. Too smart and they have an annoying tendency to catch wind of your plans, too dumb and, in the words of a certain pirate, "You can never tell when they are about to do something incredibly...stupid."

That comment isn't hers, its a paraphrase of the one where she said that he's more moronic than she pictured.

To me, the fact that he's "more moronic than she pictured" is indeed a clue that she has met him in person, although there are alternative takes on it.

I found the quote from Not Your Sayu-chan from page five of this thread, posted shortly after Gulliver's most recent blog entry (which is why I felt it seemed a lot like trolling/ implying that she'd really met him).
Pixel rephrased it with an alternate interpretation of what she might have meant.

/confusion?

To me, it seems completely in line with someone who's read the book and came away with a different impression that what she sees on the blog.

This take doesn't take into account her posts. Have you read them all? They fixate on Gulliver. Every. One. Of. Them.

Who is by far the least interesting in our cast of misfits. (my opinion, yah)

Sorry if we sound like we're picking on you. We're just paranoid. But can you please explain how you found "that idiot's blog"? That's what we still don't understand, and what's making us more paranoid.

Simple question. Are you a real person? Not a ghost, alien or esper?

Why do you still call him an idiot? Surely you know this is an in-character thing. A game.

I know you think he's stupid, but as a fan, I think it's pretty cool that you met him. Can you please describe him for me? Did he have an awesome accent? Where did you meet him? Did he have a friend with him?

Please excuse all the questions. I'm kind of fangirling right now at the idea of meeting this guy.

Forgive my skepticism, but that would involve an amazing amount of coincidence. You somehow stumble upon his blog, immediately dislike him. Then he stumbles onto your island, where you happen to be hanging out and you spot him, recognize him, and decide you want to insult him? How do you account for all that?

Wait-- so where were they? In a restaurant? Just on the street?
How did they look? Were they dressed normal? Accents?
OMG this is soooo cool please describe it all. They're both, like, my idols.

I sent her a PM. I think one on one is easier to deal with. If she tells me more, I'll be sure to share it, so we can all fangirl out together!
