Well, I'm not sure how it wouldn't be that way; would the lack of
Writers and Drama destroy Earth but leave the rest of the universe
untouched?  Heck, I'd think Earth would last the longest, simply
because it's had the most drama pumped into it over the years. Unless
other planets are being sustained by some of those alien comic book
authors Fourth Wall Lass is always going on about...

Ahhhhh.  Well, if you're going for a specific colloquial dialect,
that's something else, but it seems odd to give it to a character who
has, like, two lines. >>
