Oooooh, interesting.

Hmmmm.  Stuff I've written that actually took place in the Looniverse, in
current continuity, in those two years... huh.  Hrm.  I guess the only
things are Looniverse Chronicles #2 and Men's Courses Will Foreshadow,
neither of which Time-Waster Lad would know about. @.@ Digital JUMP! #12
was December 2009, does that count? (Not that he'd feel the need to mention
a day-in-the-life episode anyway...)

Well, Mysteriously Back From The Dead is a huge cliche, but it's also a
good starting point for future stories.  Mind you, Obscure Trivia Lad's
death scene was so wonderful that something like this can't help but be a
bit of a letdown, but hey - creator's rights and all.

Yeah, nothin' that you'd need to worry about continuitywise.

...dangit, why do I want to write *new* stories when I haven't finished the
*old* ones yet. >:/ Well, whatever ideas I - or others - come up with, I
can at least plant some seeds in Beige Countdown #4.
