Y'know, I thought Primer made sense. And then the time travel started.
Bob: What the hell was that? The comic just *stopped* for over a month!
Trope-tan: No, seriously, did you just get here?
Hiatus-tan: Oh, I did that. The break there. That was me.
Xavius: You unintentionally made *another* hiatus?
Hiatus-tan: Nope, that one was deliberate.
Xavius: Uh. Didn't you say it was involuntary?
Hiatus-tan: This one was necessary. If the comic sticks to schedule for long enough, Continuum-tan's gonna show up.
And trust me. She never stops being annoying.
Bob: You do realise it's equally annoying not to update for over a month?
Hiatus-tan: And you are very welcome.
Jane: Hey, Trope-tan? Why is the plot going nowhere?
Trope-tan: Since I have no idea what to do.
I explained the problems there three comics ago.
Jane: Right, but why not just show that video?
Jane: The one that we found in the cardboard apocalypse shelter.
Jane: The one that we were about to play immediately before the Author died.
Jane: The one that showed up as ASCII art.
Trope-tan: Oh, right! That's because I don't know what's on it.
Jane: Aren't you omniscient, though?
Trope-tan: I'm everything. All that once was and all that will be.
I control time and space, love and death.
Trope-tan: I can see into your mind. I can see into your *soul*.
Jane: … really, you can do all that?
Jane: So you're *not* omniscient?
Trope-tan: No, I am. I have all the powers. All of 'em.
What I don't have is the mental acuity needed to make use of the powers.
Trope-tan: I'm definitely omniscient right now. Every single thing that has ever been known or that ever will be known is in my head.
Trope-tan: Put simply, there's not that much room in my head. Even considering that I'm a Mary Sue.
I do know everything, but I can't focus on everything at once.
Trope-tan: In fact, it's hard to focus on anything at all, when there's so much *to* focus on.
I have about as much chance of keeping to a coherent plotline as *Primer* has of making sense.
Jane: I understood that perfectly on first viewing.
Trope-tan: Fine. As much chance as *Evangelion* has of making sense.
Jane: Jeez. Good thing that doesn't affect our regular Author.
Trope-tan: Actually, I'm pretty sure it does.
Jane: … that explains an awful lot.
