A grave announcement from Mister Administrator:

The Saint of Lost Causes
I dunno. It seems weird to ask us to write characters specifically to guard something and then use them as assassins.

[up][up][up]Hmm...maybe I shouldn't have made mine an invincible, near-soulless monstrosity that unconditionally follows all of its master's orders.

Um...oops?

Then again, [up][up], [up] what they said.

Lavish Brutality!
[up]Damnit. Well, at least Lime Man can help put your character away if he gets to be used for evil purposes.
No, you can't eat my soul. Stop asking.
I just went with the assumption that they straddle the line between fiction and reality, so the Guardian I made has narration as his power.

Just speculation. But just think about how dangerous our characters could be if used for evil. We had to make them powerful to guard the fourth wall and we know Mr. A isn't on the up and up. Of course maybe they will just be guardians. I am just saying we should keep an eye out.

Right, like Mark's dad told us, maybe we shouldn't be so trusting of him.

I think it would be foolish to 100% trust Mr.A. wild mass guessI'm under the belief that the walls are cracking BECAUSE of him mostly due to Echo Chambers. Not to mention he's outright ignored any comments about 'securing joe's safety.' It's safe to say he is keeping things from us, and from here on we should be more upfront with our opinions of his behavior.

Remember, he needs us as much as we need him, don't let him jerk us around anymore.

Hey guys... I say this with every bit of seriousness but maybe we should ask Cheshire if he is a good guy. I mean he is obviously crazy but so is the Tick.

I don't think there's much evidence for Cheshire NOT being a good guy. He's actually been incredibly helpful - he pointed us to Poirot, remember? He's just at odds with Mr. A because Mr. A wants to send Chesh back to the Other Side. He hasn't done anything outright malevolent towards us or even Mr. A. It seems to me that, in his eyes, everything is just a clever little puzzle game that he's presenting to us.

[down]At least the Cat gives us something to work with, and actually seems fond of us.

Maybe. Cheshire and Mr. A clearly don't like each other, and since we don't know who's side is the right one, we might as well play both sides.

On the other hand, the Cat's probably gonna give us some cryptic bullshit.

[up]Has Mr.A really been any more descriptive? You'd think the Admin of everything would have avoided sending us PIECES of url in the mail and just tell us the friggin url![lol]

While on the subject, I'm gonna have to put my findings on hold for now. For the most part though i still don't have anything solid. A few of the letters have become more clear, but beyond that I still can't figure out the full phrase.

What do you have so far?

Also: I've been thinking about how I got a blank disc when it sounds like no one else did. So what if I'm not supposed to receive information from Mr. A? What if I'm supposed to record the information other people gather?

Hello. Sorry I couldn't post my package myself yesterday. I can upload a jpg instead of a PDF tomorrow.

Quite the Character
Or it could just be that Mr. A made a mistake. As far as we know, he's human, isn't he? He probably isn't infallible either way.
You're crazy. Go home.
Uh, what?
[up] Is he?

@Adell: I thought that he ignored the requests to protect Joe because he can't leave the white void. Has anybody seen him outside of it, anyway? Thought so.

Some thoughts about Poirot. Has anyone noticed that the names he posts seem to be deliberately misspelled? I've already mentioned that Claire Widdicombe returns some actual search results. Now, if you google "Pieter Verhaeren", it suggests "Pieter Vanhaeren". It gives less results, but more full matches. I just think it's kind of suspicious.

Also, I've updated the shards and the timeline.

I'm not totally confident in what I've deciphered, but so far it looks like at least two urls and possibly a separate chain of letters that is either a third...reaaally long url, or something else. I'll have images for them tomorrow afternoon most likely. (i'm going to sleep now)

However from what I can see, the two clearer urls are something like this:

Http://m____ar__m

Http://m__ds_____

the "ds" part doesn't seem capable of lining up with the first one, which is why I think it's two urls at least. Unfortunately, most of the images so far have no clear area to overlap, and the ones that do mostly just filled out the m's in both urls. The message as well is pretty much just pieces of letters, and I can't tell what they are. Again, I'll see what I can do, but I'll have images tomorrow.

The Comic Shards also show Poirot with a mask, and something that looks like a talk or lecture going on.

I have an odd feeling the Shards are showing what's going to happen...

And, an idea that may work:

Get all the URL pages together, stack them up and put them to the light.
You can lead a horse to water, but a pencil must be lead.
Not sure if it has been mentioned in this thread before, but the numbers of the instantiations in Mind Screw spell out "The Wall will fall". "The" was destroyed for perpetually re-watching the "Gurt" video. "Fall" was the one left behind at the end. Perhaps someone should check with Administrator Prime about where instantiation 06-01-12-12 is located at the moment (as well as possibly 23-01-12-12 and 23-09-12-12).

Edit: Remembered that the phrase has been used in this thread. Asking about the instantiations might still be useful.

Edit 2: Is it significant that Mr Administrator wrote "JUST THOUGHT I'D MENTION IN CASE YOU MISSED IT." instead of "... WE'D MENTION ...", or is it just a typo?

[up]...I thought something felt off about that tweet! I just couldn't put my finger on it!

So far, I think we've primarily been talking to Admin Prime, but Mr. A has said that some of the tweets were by other instantations. Maybe that tweet was from a different instantation. Maybe someone could tweet to him and point out that he said "I" instead of "we?"

Also, it's less Royal "We" and more Me's a Crowd.

In uffish thought
Well, that was pointless. I just spent around an hour and a half printing, cutting, and sticking shards — the images looked like the shapes would combine to form a page even though the pictures didn't match. I was right, to an extent, but all that the text says once it's partially assembled is "USER: WTF AVERAGE JOE"; see here. (As I thought, the highlighter didn't show up properly in the photo.)
Merge those duplicates! Fix that factual error! Delete that shoehorned non-example! You have the power! Meta Four
Suggestion for those of us who use Twitter to keep up with all this: I've been using #The Wall Will Fall at the end of my tweets. Maybe if more people did that, it'd be easier to gauge where other users are progress-wise.

Uh, what?
[up][up] The "WTF Average Joe" was mentioned at the Unfiction thread. I didn't want to repost before checking myself, but I guess it's pretty much confirmed now.

Today, I've been assembling the shards to actually look pretty. Can't say it did any good. The title page doesn't even contain enough info to reconstruct the faces. I'll post the pictures when I get home and finish the job.

wild mass guess Warning: Epileptic Trees. wild mass guess

Let's take a while to interpret the whole thing. There is a comic that's full of cracks. The cracks originate from Mr. Administrator. But Joe is mentioned all over the comic - you know, all over the fourth wall. Maybe they both did something to crack the wall, and Mr. A has probably instigated him somehow (maybe without meaning to). Joe didn't seem to recognize Mr. A, so we need to find some other way he could be manipulated into cracking the wall.

...It all wouldn't be so confusing if we actually knew how reality interacts with fiction.

The Other Wiki could really use Laconic entries.
[up]If both of them are responsible for the cracks, I'd say this: Mr. A started them because when he created Echo Chamber, he brought tropes(normally only present in fiction) into the real world. Joe made the cracks worse because he's drawing attention to them, maybe?

Uh, what?
That would mean that the cracks were already present by the season 2 finale, but we don't see Mr. A take any action (and even mention it). And that would still mean that Mr. A is the only one responsible. I guess that the tropes' appearing IRL is a bit different.

wild mass guess More speculation. wild mass guess
If writing fiction about the cracks in the 4th wall can produce more cracks, then writing fiction about somebody breaking the 4th wall would break it, maybe? But that one is ruled out by common sense, otherwise we'd see Deadpool and Pinkie Pie every other week. Maybe it needs to be some special fiction. Or its writer was struck by lightning. wild mass guess

idea I know Joe doesn't usually respond directly, but maybe we should ask him if he has been writing any fiction lately...
