Thank you for providing us this means to contact you. I very much hope that we'll be able to calmly and rationally discuss our differences and our common goals. Though I don't hold out hope that it will be possible to arrive at a solution that is satisfactory to everyone, I still wish to have as open and honest a dialog as we can. If we do arrive at a solution that everyone is happy with, I will be shocked and ecstatic.
In the interests of complete honesty and openness, I'll inform you that I'm known to the metaguards as narrativedilettante. This is the name I used to address you in the chatroom on Saturday. If you read through my posts on the forum, you will find that I've said some things indicative of being set against your cause. I won't hide that right now I consider the safest option to be sending all fictionals home. (Though I have also made it clear that I would gladly give all of you the exact stories you desire, regardless of my personal feelings about what any one of you might deserve.)
However, I have also been critical of Mr. Administrator, and I don't fully trust him. Nor do I fully trust you, but I figure I must give you an equal chance. I will gladly listen to your arguments, though I make no promises about what my decisions will be. All I can promise right now is a sympathetic ear.
Now I'd like to address the plan you suggested, of gathering the wall pieces and sealing the wall, with you and the other fictionals who wish to stay remaining on this side. I'm concerned about this plan, and I think you can understand why. If your presence here turns out to have damaging effects on the world, I would want to be able to send you home, which would save not just me but also you, as a catastrophe would put you in danger too. In the chat, you suggested that we may be able to reopen the wall if such an event were to come about. However, from what I can tell, no one knows how the wall was cracked or how one might go about opening it again. Until I know how to open the wall, I don't want to seal it with even a single fictional on this side. It just seems too dangerous. So what would need to happen for me to support you is that someone needs to figure out how the wall was damaged. If we have that information, we can replicate the initial event if needed.
I trust that we'll be able to engage in productive discourse.
I got a quick response from her just letting me know she'd got my email, and I sent a courtesy reply before getting her full response:

(what a lovely name)
I find it difficult to believe that the Administrator, in his infiniteness, has not researched how the wall was broken or how it would be possible to break it again. He could literally assign an infinite number of instantiations to work on that problem and still have an infinite number left.
I wish I could provide you with an answer that was concrete, but I am just one woman. The Cabal is only four. And, as I am sure you and yours have realized and been frustrated by, we are human. All I can do is point you toward a being who likely has those answers, has likely had them for awhile, and will likely not give them up for whatever reason. I leave you to draw your own conclusions there. I trust that you have seen the conclusions I myself have drawn.
