* ''SCPFoundation'' uses this in a lot of its interviews, adding to the chilling effect most of them get. Granted, the reason why they're featureless is they're written as actual interview transcripts instead of any sort of narrative.

area, with the characters musing on how they don't know how long they've been travelling, or why they're travelling -- merely that [[WorldLimitedToThePlot they know they have a cue to show up for]].

* This happens from time to time in {{S}} because Jen and Eric's dialogue is entirely carried out through marginal notes in a book. There's very little physical description because the form doesn't really allow for it; we don't get to hear much about the characters' appearance or what their college or town looks like. It's surprisingly unimportant. By contrast the novel they're commenting on has plenty of description.

(if you are in fact writing a novel about two brains conversing telepathically while suspended in a lightless tank of nutrient-rich fluid, carry on).
