Joe: [OOC] So wait. He can't do a post because he's too sad to be funny? Whose been dying for the other 88 posts? I hope it at least gets some mileage out of each one.
Dane: [GM] Joe, stop antagonizing the author.
Joe: [OOC] What? It's not like he can read this.
James: [Author] Yes I can.
Joe: [OOC] And here I thought I had found the reason for all the typos.
James: [Author] I just don't talk a lot because I feel like fourth-wall humor doesn't really have a place in the project.
Soo: [OOC] But this is a nerd project. Nerds love fourth-wall humor.
James: [Author] Yeah, but when you already have the group dynamic of the players working against Dane, adding in the traditional 'uncooperative characters/exasperated author/director' joke would just seem like a pointless extra layer. Besides, I can do my job just fine without being present in the body of the work.
Joe: [OOC] If this listless narrative is what you consider 'fine'.
James: [Author] For example...
Joe: [OOC] Soo, I've left my wife. Now we can finally be together.
Soo: [OOC] WHAT?!
Joe: [OOC] I didn't say that!
James: [Author] Yes you did. Now dance puppets! Dance!
Ian: [OOC] Oh yes, this is all seeming like a great page of 'mourning'.
Kyle: [OOC] I hope this is one of those fourth-wall breaches that we all just sort of ignore on the next post.
In Memory of Darth Vader the Cat
Because a cat that slept on the keyboard for half these posts would have wanted
an amusing memorial.
