It's a weird quirk of the forum software; if there's exactly the number of posts to fill a page but not start the next, it creates a phantom page. You get used to it.

That was a lot more coherent than I expected! A fun story so far.

Ok that took me unfairly long, but we're up to 2016 words this chapter so I hope that partially makes up for it.

We're still ~3000 words behind if we're operating at it being the 6th, hopefully Agent will do their bit to fixing that in short order. (i.e. Agent has it next)

Alright, I done done did it.

A regular-length post would have been pushing it awfully close to a chapter-complete count without actually hitting it, so I went on a little long and wrapped up the chapter since we're a bit behind. I hope nobody minds.

That chapter was a surprise. My final prompt was a bit vague, so Crowstone took it in quite a different direction than I'd meant it to be, but that's how this sort of thing works.

I think the order was Solaris-Schazer/NTA collaborating-Agent-Fogel-Crowstone-Slorange, if anybody knows otherwise feel free to correct me.
(Maybe we can start leaving our names on the document to keep this clear.)

Anyhow, I'm going to start the next chapter now.

Oh right I was going to post a thought I had at work today! I forgot about that until now

At the end of chapter two, there's some confusion in Crow's post about who Zembra is, since it's heavily implied that Connie kidnapped Agent Zembra but then is called on the phone by someone calling themselves Zembra. It is not a very common name!

What occurred to me is that one possibility that might be fun to think about is that Connie knew Zembra as a child, but didn't know she was forever young or lost touch with her, and so when they needed to contact her again the older woman who is apparently planning on destroying wishes claimed to be Zembra in order to gain Connie's trust. Or simply Connie's memory problems made her forget who the real Zembra was and the fake Zembra made her think she was the real Zembra. Or something.

I dunno, this might already have been addressed in the current chapter, but it's been bugging me. Just some thoughts!

Yeah, that was bugging me, too. (Though to be fair, it's impressive how far this got without that kind of major confusion yet.)
Part of the way I was trying to parse it was that Zembra was actually calling Connie from the back seat. But I don't think that really works, even if it weren't totally implausible.
