Y'know, I thought Primer made sense. And then the time travel started.

I would post a catch phrase of Primer, but I don't remember any. Do remember to check out the rats in the attic, though.

Mr. R
why dont you use your author powers to increase your mental capacity so you can advance the plot. also WHY ARE YOU ALL GIRLS??? WHY ARE THE BOY CHARACTERS CAT GIRLS?!?!


10th Nov 2013, 8:09 AM
wait, I didn't think the males here were literally cat girls, just cat uh

I don't know what the correct term is.

ah, yes, found the quote.

on the author comment (well, the tropetan as author comment), for the comic where trope-tan gains author status, she says
"Catpeople are awesome and you know it."

so they are catpeople, not all catgirls.

so the boy chars probably aren't technically catgirls.

It appears that google chrome's spellcheck contains "catgirls", but not "spellcheck".

ok, so turns out in a later comic fred (I think it was fred) refers to them all as catgirls.

So currently it might be a little ambiguous whether the males are currently catgirls or just catpeople.

This might or might not ever be made more clear.


is the person with the epsilon on the shirt continuum tan?

(because of epsilon delta proofs)

(for all epsilon greater than zero there exists a delta greater than zero such that for all x within delta of A (that is also not A), P(x) )

I haven't though through whether that entirely makes sense or not, just a thing I thought of.

10th Nov 2013, 1:23 PM
They are all cat girls, and all the males before are still males. They are just male cat girls. This makes sense, somehow.

Mr. R
wait if continuum tan only shows up when on a schedule and the hiatuses happen like EVERY COMIC NOW then she WILL show up

4th Dec 2013, 10:51 AM
Mr. R
wait now i know this was ALL planned by the first author and during the second party his time excursion was him making sure he would be back after this and the name of the chapter is because this is how the comic COULD HAVE BEEN made

Mr. R
do i have to do this? i think i do! (makes a plot hole and drops megaman style armor) now then if i can reverse the plotlarity of a plothole it will GIVE narrativium giving the comic story and making another mechanic of plotholes at the same time killing two birds with one stone possibly three if the armor works


30th Jan 2014, 3:22 PM
heh. Clever. However, I expect there might be problems with the mega-man armor stemming from art style clashes.
or, not, you know, just a guess.

for my thoughts on plot
("Thoughts on plot. Plots on thought. Plots on thought on plot sir. There's really quite a lot sir. Plot sir? Where sir? Plots on thoughts on plot sir? On thoughts sir? Yes sir, plots on thoughts. On plot sir? Yes sir, thoughts on plots sir. Plots on thoughts on plots sir!? YES, plots on thoughts on plot sir!

I say!")

The plot video is tied to the apocalypse shelter, which is tied to the oot apocalypse, which is in turn tied to the oot. trope-tan has said o (she got it from the royal family).

Therefore, it seems plausible that the plot could be happened with the ocarina, and that could be a thing.

("Ay, the plots the thing, from the ocarina what threads could sing,
something something something wings,
ehhhhhhhh Macarena! (ah ha!).")

terza rima

("Ay, the plots the thing, from the ocarina
what threads could sing,
ehhhhhhhh Macarena! (ah ha!).

And with these strings
A tale is weaved,
flying with gigantic wings.

O'r author, grieved
apocalypse, survived
no more will the plot be cleaved.

And with the author revived,
how many were going to Saint Ive's?")

meant majora's mask.

Mr. R
yeah but the rush armor for time travel is also clashing normaly also if you are reading this trope tan the author said that there is a mode OTHER then predestination mode so there CAN be predestination free time travel

yes, I'm here.

2nd Feb 2014, 9:58 AM
I didn't get the first part of that.

yes, time travel w/o predetermination is possible in the comic,
but trope tan suggested that the rush adapter would not be used for that.
They would just use the time travel device they had before.

my argument is that, as trope tan said that she doesn't want to go back before the authorship change, because of clashing art-styles, she also would not want to write in mega man armor, for the same reason.

Were you saying that the rush adapter clashes to the same degree that mega-man armor would?
I disagree, but then I haven't seen what it would look like with mega-man armor.

I didn't really get what you meant in your comment.


2nd Feb 2014, 2:52 PM
oh! I misunderstood you!
you were addressing trope tan, not me, and talking about the author,
not talking about the author, trope tan.
s/trope tan/trope-tan/

I misunderstood.

30th Mar 2014, 2:58 AM
Mr. R
when i was talking about author i meant dave from bob and george but normaly the armors are 8-bit


12th Apr 2014, 11:40 AM
oh. oops. haha. ok.

A question for Hiatus-Tan:

7th Apr 2014, 3:43 PM
Back when there was a plot, approximately what fraction of plot holes did you create, voluntarily or otherwise, as opposed to them arising from other sources? I would also like a breakdown of "other sources" that you are aware of, but that isn't strictly necessary.

Officially, the deadline for answering this question is tomorrow; unofficially, I expect it to be answered between one week and one year from now.

Mr. R
I KNOW! *opens plot hole and sends in a TV playing the words captain obvious in letters and sound while showing a immage of him while simutaniusly dropping a 100%see through sneak attack proof dome on jane that ALSO speeds up time and speeds up text even more so she can perform the spell in one to two pannels* this should be fun *closes plot hole*

2nd May 2014, 1:21 PM
Mr. R
oh and captain obvious (and the hat) are both unaffected by the lack of narrative or whatever its called as the plot holes only affected what was seen of the webcomic and we have never seen the plane of antimagic on screen and this causes importance anyway so yeah...wait a minute METAMAGIC TIME! maximixed empowered epic level raise dead former author known as david mclean (thats metamagic right? at least very specific and it does work right?) if that doesn't work if gary installed the final fantasy map system then i could probably hack in a phoenix down or something

The Chessmaster
Nooo! Curse you, Hiatus-tan! You stopped the comic for over nine months!

13th Sep 2014, 2:29 PM
Mr. R
well, theres one thing left to do... if none of that worked, i must create EVEN MORE RIP-OFFS OF ORDER OF THE STICK! *makes a plot hole and drops in a evil opposites themed group led by the wiki-witch of the web!(by the way she IS trope-tan, i um "borrowed" her from a opposite timeline)!* and now *makes 5 "gate" like objects sealing 5 mega-plot-holes of different sizes* oh also the evil opposite group are dog people

7th Jan 2015, 5:29 PM
Oh. My. GOD the hiatus.

15th Apr 2016, 4:59 PM

Hiatus Chan Won

I have come to warn you trope-tan. you must revive the author before the comic implodes. here is a handy manual. *drops manual through stable plot hole. also, drops continuum-tan and a tall man with long blond hair and a yellow plaid jacket through*
the man is wil von van. he is a mad scientist. this will help. NOW DO THE THING!

28th Sep 2018, 4:44 PM
... Was that a "Charlie the Unicorn" reference in panels 9 and 10? I watched it recently and there were definite similarities.



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?
Trope-tan: Video?
Jane: The one that we found in the cardboard apocalypse shelter.
Trope-tan: Shelter?

Jane: The one that we were about to play immediately before the Author died.
Trope-tan: Author?
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: Yes!

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?
Trope-tan: No!

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.
Jane: Huh?

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.
Jane: But?

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.
