Author Notes:

On The Topic Of Plot Holes

00Davo
The plot holes drain narrativium, yes. That's the reason why they're so dangerous.

But they're opened by pointing out a flaw in the plot. They're closed by justifying that flaw.

It hasn't been explained exactly which flaw opened this particular plot hole, but the MST3K Mantra works on pretty much all plot holes.

Wait... so the plot holes drain narrativium? I guess that would make sense, since they reduce the readers' suspension of disbelief, but in that case, how can you possibly close them without some sort of Retcon?

Actually, "It's just a webcomic. I really should relax."

Transcript:

Trope-tan: Firstly, it's not actually a universe-destroying rift in the fabric of reality, so stop calling it that.
Joel: But I *like* calling it a universe-destroying rift in the fabric of reality.
Fred: Bleargh.

Trope-tan: It's really a plot hole.
Whump!

Joel: A *plot hole*.
Trope-tan: Yep.
Joel: Like the way the the eye creatures are weak to light, despite being filmed in broad daylight?
Trope-tan: Yep, that sort of thing.

Trope-tan: Secondly, there's practically no chance of that so-called rift destroying universes. Scans indicate that narrativium leakage is well within operating parameters.
Technobabble Box 2: Electric Boogaloo™
Joel: Well, that's good to know.

Trope-tan: We should probably seal it up anyway, though.
It could potentially destabilise and vent all the narrativium from the Satellite, resulting in immediate unimportance, likely followed by death in the vacuum of space.
Technobabble Box 3: Cash-In On The Popularity Of 2™
Joel: ... and that's not at all good to know.
Bob: Why's everyone collapsing on the floor, anyway?

Joel: Okay, so how do we seal this plot hole?
Trope-tan: Um. How do you usually deal with plot holes around here?
Joel: We riff off them mercilessly?

Joel: Hmm. No, wait, I've got it.
(singing) If you're wondering how he eats and breathes, and other science facts,
Trope-tan (singing): Lalala!
Joel (singing): Repeat to yourself "it's just a show, I should really just relax."

Schloop!
