What was the thought process behind making her so awesome? :roll:
I won't ask why she didn't leave her technological advancements for us, but it sure would be sweet if she did. :(

Eric Kays.

No, really. He was the thought process.

No I didn't! I totally didn't hide them in my basement! You can't prove anything!

I am responsible for Wicked Witch's experiments with science. I'm actually very surprised and happy that I was able to do that in the first place since almost everything else in the game didn't lend itself to it. I love science and science fiction, so I'm usually looking into new technological advancements and random science-y things on Wikipedia. Wicked Witch's storyline was being written and we were coming up with ways for her to angst about being in this world and trying to find ways to go home. I don't know who thought of wormholes, though.

I really wanted to make her post realisticish. Being an art student with a passing knowledge of physics and science fiction, I pretty much have no idea what I'm talking about. That didn't stop me from... wikipediaing... the entire thing. If you look this stuff up, you'll find that I used real terms and ideas, though I'm not fully sure how accurate they are in this piece. In any case, it was probably my favorite writing assignment. I had a ton of fun coming up with theory and for once applying my "knowledge" of time and space theory.

:shock: :? :) :D :lol:

Seriously. We loved that. We really did, and it helped out with us tweaking with the Metaverse, regardless of original intention. Really: Limes, have them. :gurt: :gurt: :gurt: :gurt: :gurt:

I… think that’s not exactly a scientific approach, lady Witch.
I understood your last post as an attempt to analyze the interdimensional travels and… I don’t know, apply your magic to repeat them? But I don’t think just trying out fictional means of transportation is going to work. They are called ‘fictional’ for a reason.

Well alright then. You wanted science? I give you science.



This was created by Dana. To be honest, I wrote that piece LONG before the game was launched and I had written a different opening.

"This next post is all about what I think I’ll call the biggest cocktease of your world. I've figured out that the equivalent to my magic is your science... your scientists have seriously wasted a lot of time in developing even crude forms of transportation compared to my world. This is the story of my studies of and disappointment in wormhole theory."

Honestly, Dryunya made this so much better with his comment. It set up the idea perfectly.

Or something boring like a stegosaurus? Was it covered in feathers? Did it taste like chicken? In case you couldn’t tell, I love dinosaurs too.


Raptor. A real one, not the Jurassic Park one. No feathers. Feathers on a dinosaur suck. It tasted like malice and little dogs.

Yeah, uh, basically decided that since we decided to go a bit more serious and less outwardly comedic, to cut things like "cocktease" and AND THEN AN INTERDIMENSIONAL WORMHOLE OPENED AND THERE WAS A DINOSAUR. I just kept the reference ;)

...Ok. Actually, screw scientific accuracy. What does interest me is her multidimensional model. Does it have an explanation, or is it Techno Babble? I tried to wrap my mind around it, and I came to conclusion that there should be one more dimension for her model to make sense. Or something. I don't remember, nor do I want to think about it again. It was frustrating. :?
Actually, yes I do. If the model was something you made up on the spot, we can improve it. For Science! :gurt:

It made some degree of sense to me, but I guess if Eric doesn't respond, we'll never know what he intended.
