That's character-correct. I have friends who use "BTW" (and "IRL" and of
course "LOL" and "OMG") in spoken conversation, and Pantra is that kind
Interesting with the LOL, some people pronounce it like "lol", others
(Bizarre thing with using "BTW" in spoken conversation is that it's
actually longer than "by the way". One of the reasons "by the way"
became so popular is that it's short and, well, has a nice flow. But,
people are strange.)
>>"Ah. Well. I'm looking for an universe."

Really? That's new to me. Anyway, I'll stick with "Fodder said it that
way", since I've seen it spoken both ways :-) (only apparently I was
wrong about which one is correct.)
>>"Have you checked Green's universe?", Bonnie offered.

Actually, I may be wrong about that. I should go back and check my LOH
back-issues. But at least on his universe (LOH-of-LNH2), there is *some*
life, since Cannon Fodder (now Savior) is alive, and, well, the existence
of Green him/herself means life as a concept is still around.

eh, I'm going to disagree on this one :-)

Yeah I feel that :-/ I guess I tend to do that when I return to a story
after not writing it for a long time. Kind of reacquainting myself with
what I was doing and planning. (I had the recap thing on the top, then I
read the issue and figured it was redundant, heh.) I suppose on some
level it's good, since anyone who's reading can use it to remember what
was going on as well, and set up for what follows.
So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
then they seem improbable, and then, when we
summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
