Uh, what?
[up] I'm starting to think that I've been more praised over the course of this ARG than IRL for the last year. [lol]

I'll update it to include what we've found - I guess that's about the only thing I can do for now. I can't think straight to write a story (I am, indeed, a crappy writer), but I still have to stay awake for a couple more hours. RL stuff.

I added a couple of things that happened today. If anyone wants to elaborate or clarify, that'd be great.


EDIT 2: Summary: Joe did in fact post the puppets video himself, of his own volition, and it was the reason he started the Watch the Footage project in the first place. He's also been getting more letters, but he doesn't want to open them.

It's nice to see Joe's back, and the mention of the antique store in Prague seems to confirm what Drunk Girlfriend said about the puppets being Spejbl and Hurvínek.

I do wonder what he was doing in Prague, though, and what the heck that was on his computer screen ...

I think I heard a meow at 2:10 lol

Edit: So what I'm getting from this is that Spejbl (the puppet who's eye was moving) was a being from the fictional world who jumped to ours, and NOT just a regular puppet. So I guess he can be added to the list of characters who have made it through the wall.

EDIT: And Chesire Cat agrees that he heard 'another cat.' Cool.

Only ONE of the puppets was moving.


[up]Do puppet characters count as fictional? I guess they do. Either way, we're on the lookout for a little Czech wooden man. Or maybe the antique store owner.

Uh, what?
Joe is starting to freak out. tongue
I still don't get why he didn't add any comments to the puppet video, but whatever. He is fine (yet).

I think puppets are a special example, because they not only have a plot written for them, but also pre-made bodies. They sort of don't have to pass the wall completely - they only need to transfer their mind.

And, no matter how hard I try, I can't relate the sound at 2:10 to a cat. =/

I'm guessing that the puppet video was taken before Joe started making WTF since he was in prague at the time.

this could mean that before the cracks started forming, there may have been a few subtle incidents where some(things?) may have crossed over to our world and now that the wall has weakened these incidents have becomes more obvious

well based on Cheshire's post on twitter we can assume the cat meow in the new WTF wasn't him. I'm not sure that its actually relevant but it might be relevant in the future

So, if the fictional characters can move into their puppet bodies...

What about Joe himself? Technically, he is fictional. What if he hijacks his own body? Would that be too meta?

If Anything, he mentioning the meow was so that we didn't start going down the epileptic tree thinking it was him.

It's great to see Joe's okay. I was worried about the poor guy.

Judging by what he said about the letters, I'm guessing they've gotten increasingly threatening.

It makes sense that there was a "meow" in the background because...well, he has a cat.

Oh god poor Joe. You can just see it in his eyes of him slowly breaking down and that puppet video. Even when we get explanation, it doesn't get less scary and Joe's thoughts on it. Wow..

also meow at 2:10, there's a cat. It's obviously his, the one we saw in the Cat video.

[up][up] According to the last episode of Echo Chamber, there is no upper level of reality. The events in the show (Zack leaving) needed to be retconned on each recursive level of the show, going to infinity. I'm pretty sure that's what caused the fourth wall to break.

I thought so. Well then again everyone would've by ages ago.

Then that just leads me to think about how this affects Season 3. We have a long time waiting and we have this lovely ARG to keep us going.

I wonder if the number 210 is important...

Glad to see Joe's okay.

I've been wondering... Why not write one of us as a guardian? Sounds silly, but when we write about something, they become fictional, correct? And we weren't asked to focus on motivation over anything else? Why not throw in one of us as a character in there, and have a a goal of... Honestly, I'm probably talking nonsense right now. May have to think this over a bit.

Again, sorry if this sounds like nonsense. At this point, I'm going mad trying to think of a character. tongue

@Zombie Prefix: We have to approach this from a story-based standpoint. Author Avatars can become dangerously close to Mary Sues, and we don't want that. Also, we don't know the possible consequences of writing ourselves into the Other Side while the Wall is cracked. Author Avatars are usually no biggie on this side, but with the Wall cracked, we can't take any such risks.

EDIT: Altered my wording a bit for accuracy.

[up]I see, makes sense. Welp, back to the drawing board!

Just wondering, how are all of your characters going? Aside from the self-insert idea, I was thinking about a character who's incredibly paranoid, and his motivation for protecting anything, or even fighting, is his over-acting imagination thinking the worst of the worst case scenarios.
Quite the Character
Also on the topic of our stories, would a couple characters who have existed since the beginning of the Wall be okay? They're not to be omnipotent, nor particularly badass (they aren't that strong, just strong enough to keep minor "bad" characters from passing into the real world or vise versa (so they couldn't stop, say, Cthulhu from passing to the real world; they simply aren't strong enough)). My idea was a pair of twins who guard either side of the Wall. If that's not okay, then I can just turn it into an original story.
You're crazy. Go home.

Write it up. Worst-case scenario, Mr. A rejects it.

My character is, er, sort of...non-existant, for the time being. I went through a bunch of ideas: one time it was a Rated M for Manly armored superstrong beast that acted as a loyal hound to Mr. A, then it was a scrawny, nerdy, glasses-wearing teenager with powers of energy manipulation, then a mysterious wizard with those same energy manipulation powers, and now I think I'm going for an entire millitary organization whose job it is to protect the borders between the universes, and even then, I'm not entirely sure I want to go with THAT.

I don't think my creativity likes being under an unknown time constraint...
