I think the GMs could throw an echo somewhere RIGHT NEXT TO OUR HOME BECAUSE THEY ARE NICE PEOPLE. :geek:

You are right, as always. The GMs are very nice and cool and they'll give us easy echo access.
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

The uncle in portsmouth who I really wasn't sure was able to get there? He's going to TRY and make it this saturday! Just waiting to see if he texts me back.

If he can't make it let me know. I used to live about halfway between there and London and could probably get someone if needed.

I too agree. They will hopefully listen to our enthusiasm and move fictionals to nearby major cities.
Also, how is it that GuestUser17 has been everywhere? If he turns out to actually be Batman-Prime, I will be unsurprised.
Apparently, slightly less weird than most of you.

Sorry, guys :( My uncle went to the customs house but couldn't get the echo to work (I suspect he simply wasn't tech savvy enough to get it to work, but he tried)

We need a back up plan. Now.

You tried anyways, Scarab. :gurt: Don't feel bad, take the lime.

There's a small chance I can get it in the vicinity of the 16th.

That's good, but we need other options. 16th is too late for comfort.

GuestBatman said he knows some people in the area, I think. Can you PM him, Scarab, and tell him your lead didn't pan out so can he try?

Thank you so much, Batman!

Looks like the trope here is Comforting Comforter. Not sure how it can be anything else.

The other possible trope is Catapult Nightmare.

I thought it could be that, but the trope has to be for LJS, doesn't it?

Oh. Right. :oops: (It's possible that since it's in the same echo, it'll still count - we have Amoral Attorney for Pan, after all.)

The point is, it's Silver's echo, so it doesn't matter who in the comic displays the trope, just as long as we use it in Silver's story.
If everyone would just agree with me, there would never be any problems.

Well A just said that while Comforting Comforter would work, it would be better for something more specific to LJS from the comic.

I'm thinking maybe Pet the Dog?
