FYI, unfiction has a forum for the ARG, but we're way behind you guys in activity. cool

In any case, I need to catch up on some of these videos, but i did suggest that the dark figure in the third episode might actually be the death figure from Edward Gorey's "Gashlycrumb Tinies"

You win the internet. [awesome]

If that's the case, he seems to be somewhat out of context, though.
The Other Wiki could really use Laconic entries.
Out of context seems to be what all the videos are about. I mean I suppose someone could ask if someone died at the wedding event or something (choked on wedding cake or the chandelier fell on someone or whatever).

Also thanks for the medal.

Uh, what?
I've also found that Unfiction thread. Nothing of particular interest there, but there's one thing that wasn't mentioned here. It's about the Feelies:

HELLO AGENT.

WE ARE PLEASED THAT YOU ARE CONSIDERING ENLISTING WITHIN OUR RANKS. WE WILL SEND A SMALL PACKAGE CONTAINING THREE ITEMS THAT ARE OF IMPORTANCE. THIS IS NOT MANDATORY BUT MAY HELP IN UNDERSTANDING FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS.

MR. ADMINISTRATOR

Not really saying anything, but this time he mentioned the amount of stuff.

Okay, NOW I'm finished with my second first draft. Entirely new metaguard (who isn't actually a proper metaguard in the story itself, so no more capitalized "M"). This time I wanted it to read more like a myth or fairy tale, so my new guardian is a Classical Mythology / Egyptian Mythology style Mix And Match Creature that obeys anyone who says a specific magical phrase. (And I included the phrase in the story so Mr. A can use it.)

I basically designed a guard dog (or guard lion-bear-snake-deer-thunderstorm-precious metal, in this case) that would be easy for Mr. A to convince to help; just say the magic words and BAM, you've got an invincible monster guarding the cracks!

EDIT: Just wanted to add that, even though it's immortal, I don't think it has enough of a personality or individuality to be considered a Mary Sue, because it's just a monstrous construct of the gods.

Wouldn't it be ironic if it turns out that Mr. Admin turned out to be the bad guy and plans to use them to widen the cracks.

Considering Echo Chamber's second season finale, there's actually a very good chance of that happening.

Right, I've come up with a completely different story idea in the last, oh, five hours? Now I've got a mysterious waif-sort of girl that can see the flow of ambient energies, normal and arcane, throughout the fabric of reality. She's otherwise human, but being able to see how the world fits together lets her sort of reach through the folds and do stuff- mostly portal-related, natch. It's not cracks she's dealing with, but it's kinda similar.
why is productivity not happen D:
Anyone get Mr. A's 'package' yet? I think it might've came today for me, but I don't know if the mail truck's ran yet. I'll check and keep you guys updated.

Metaguards can be done in any medium, right? I was thinking about doing a drawing and then writing a short blurb, since I'm a really slow writer.

EDIT: Well that's a nice degree of accuracy for you.

Nerdy. Weird. AWESOME.
Does anyone think that some sort of IRC channel might help with solving puzzles coming up,or would this thread suffice? I might be able to set one up.

I've thought about setting one up, but so far the thread has worked fine. If we get a puzzle that really needs collaborative effort, we'll probably move in that direction.
1392 DrunkGirlfriend24th Sep 2012 06:22:10 PM from Castle Geekhaven
I think the thread is better, actually, just because people who aren't online when stuff happens can look back over what they missed.

1394 DrunkGirlfriend24th Sep 2012 06:36:23 PM from Castle Geekhaven
[up] I personally like looking over the thread, because seeing what people have been thinking and suggesting is sometimes more helpful than seeing the general consensus.

It'd be nice if we had some sort of IRC-bot who could dump every hour worth of channel archives into a pastebin or something for everyone to see. Does that sort of thing exist?
1396 DrunkGirlfriend24th Sep 2012 07:03:23 PM from Castle Geekhaven
[up] Probably, but you'd need to find someone willing to be online 24/7 so that it'll be online all the time. Also, chat logs tend to be more difficult to go through, since topic drift happens a lot faster in chat than it does on a forum.

I think what we have now works well enough. The timeline is a great way to catch up quickly, while the actual thread moves at a steady enough pace to give us time to think and work together in a timely fashion.

Yep, it tastes like helix.
Well I've got nothing else to contribute at the moment other than I feel like telling Cheshire I'm apparently being haunted by a Minecraft ghost. [lol] My day's been weird.

Edit: Oh wait, so I'm being haunted by a ghost in fictions from the other side of the wall...?

It's not in ruin? Well that won't do.

Probably not particularly relevant to any puzzles, but this line from Cheshie made me laugh.
