2006-07-19: Escape Phrase 73


Sorry about the downtime, folks. Somehow I forgot to include "ifup eth0" in my init script. HA HA HA HA it's true.

Anyway, here continues the horrible expository infodump. You'll thank me, I'm sure.

This comic is in the storyline:

ViewHide the text transcript of this comic.

Escalavator: Each of the Powers has a space Beyond that is safe from your influence. Q built his behind a set of Walls. H built hers behind the Third Door. L built his behind a Socket. I don't know where the last space is.

Jimothy: A socket? Is that code for something? The other places make sense... but we've been in them, so... Anyway, where are they? What sort of place is the Beyond?

Escalavator: It's a space outside the Narrative, that's what she told me. Jimothy, you choose the frame the Narrative takes on.

Tsamantha: And my power controls what is inside the frame?
Escalavator: Yes, exactly. Together the two of you define the entire universe.

Jimothy: So then how are we destroying it?

Escalavator: You... you weren't ever supposed to know who you were. Q thought it would expedite things, or that it was clever. He was a fool.
