Author Notes:

TV Tropes references: Everything Sensor | Unsound Effect | Noodle Implements | Oh Crap

Trope-tan's line in Panel 6 is a reference to the hilariously bad fanfic Quarter-Life: Halfway To Destruction.

P=NP is a famously difficult and currently unsolved problem in theoretical computer science and mathematics. However, in the Way Of The Metagamer 'verse, it can be solved far more easily as follows.
P = Plot, expressed in kiloMacGuffins.
N = A given amount of elemental narrativium.
Therefore, plot equals plot multiplied by narrativium, which is why areas with high concentrations of narrativium (often referred to as "plot points") are so much more plot-relevant than other areas. Some isotopes of narrativium, such as phlebotinum, generate so much raw plot that entire stories can be built solely upon them.


Let me be a Grammar Nazi for a second.

"Slowly become vaporise"? I think what you're looking for here is "slowly vaporise."

Slowly Become Vaporise...

... is exactly what I meant. Perhaps I should have put the author note in 3em boldest emphasis?

I like the equation

As of this comment, a potential solution to P=NP has been found. We may yet escape!

Message from the future: the solution previously alluded to actually sucks and doesn't work at all.



Trope-tan: So, you spent an entire chapter trying to escape from this comic, to no avail?
Bob: Yes, that is exactly what I just said, except rephrased as a question.

Trope-tan: According to the comic archives, Jane knows a way out of the comic...

Trope-tan: I request that you now explain how to escape this comic!
Jane: Put the quill away, and let's talk.

Jane (imitating narrator): Several minutes of explanation later...
Trope-tan: Of course, that makes so much sense!

Jane: Exactly. Once you've got the SCUBA equipment, the rest is as easy as solving P=NP.
Trope-tan: But where can we find a carton of gooseberry ice cream at this hour?

Panel 6
Trope-tan: Oh dear. According to my EverythingSensor... the entire comic's going to slowly become vaporise.
Except quickly.
We've got about... one comic.
Jane: Quick! With any luck, we can find the quick-drying cement mix before-


Jane: That... is not good.
Trope-tan: Screaming and running would be a suitable response at this point.
