Exposition Day

The title= text so far has included a parody of early childrens' literature, self-referential gags, Superman shout outs, a lack of walruses, ominous goodness, xkcd, and eldritch abominations. "Nice recap."

Author Notes:

It's a recap comic! And the audience actually knew none of this beforehand!

TV Tropes references: As You Know | Let Me Get This Straight | Recap Episode

Note that although Let Me Get This Straight is an actual line, As You Know is the main trope invoked here.

I also loved the references and am moved to say 'Great Job' - and thank you for listening to your readers :)



Fred: Remind me. Where exactly are we going now and why?
Bob: Presumably so that our readers know what's going on, yes?
Fred: That was indeed a consideration.

Bob: Here's how it is: The Earth got used up, so we moved out and terraformed-
Jane: Wrong 'verse.
Bob: Oh, right. Here's how it actually is: After our quarry escaped last night, we got to sleep immediately to ensure that Jane could prepare spells today.

Xavius: Will you please explain exactly what we're doing and why?
Author: Sure. Basically, all those problems you pointed out three pages ago are going to tear open plot holes.

Bob: Having checked Google Maps, we can be certain that the closest Greyzone is within the Eternal Pit Of Peril And Damnation, just a few miles this way.
Fred: That name doesn't exactly instill me with confidence.

Bob: Nah, Wikipedia says it's just an all-you-can-eat steakhouse.
Fred: That... makes little to no sense.

Author: I've invoked the transportation module to gain first-hand access to the comic's interior, so that we may more directly observe the damage about to be dealt.

Bob: So now, we're walking the short distance to the Pit of Eternal Peril and Damnation along the world map, since we're inexplicably really tall and can easily cover the distance.
Jane: I have never managed to understand how that works.

Fred: So, let me get this straight. We're walking cross-country, giant-sized due to Final Fantasy map code, to reach a steakhouse named the Pit of Eternal Peril and Damnation.

Author: Additionally, we are in the optimal position to perform any necessary intervention to the comic's usual plot, either through the assortment of technology this craft is festooned with, or with any of the magic spells I have prepared today.

Fred: We are doing so because the Pit of Eternal Peril and Damnation is confirmed to be a Greyzone, and therefore the location of the next Colour Drop, a plot coupon we'll certainly need to cash in later on.

Bob/Xavius: Nice recap.
Fred/Author: Thanks. Let's go!
