This is some metacommentary that I think really fleshes out things but don't really fit naturally into the prose. So I set them here for your reading enjoyment!

(1) There weren't actually 111 floors; there's just 111 bases in the building. The elevator was like an awesome Willy Wonka elevator in that it went by room instead of floor. It's broken now. People who wanted to access their base either had to relocate or pick up urban climbing as a hobby.
Also, you'll notice the room numbers are assigned according to the building, not the actual, you know, base number. This gets kind of confusing when you know that Pope chose the location of his extra-special secret base to be, obviously, room 108, while his member id (and subsequent base code) is 481. Think of the base codes as being the prime way of getting to any one base in the site, while building related numbers are just whatever the person wants them to be.

(2) The vast chat logs and custom chat rooms extend underground beneath the main chat building. Remember the secret room? The secret room was so great.

(3) If you're curious, he was listening to Second Life by Kitty Pryde, which is her latest single from her upcoming album, "Flower Violence." It's really great, actually.

(4) Seriously, that just occurred to me right now. Calvin has Hobbes, Finn has Jake, and I definitely think this story would be improved if Pope could have an animal sidekick. I mean... in most instances, Pope would probably be the sidekick. This is why I don't really like writing with him as the main character. It's like he has no one to exchange witty banter with except himself, and that just comes across in the end as sort of desperate and lonely. Heh. Hehe. I don't know what that's like at all.

(5) Pope was wearing a ninja suit.

(6) That one where The Dude from the Big Lebowski puts on sunglasses and says "DEAL WITH IT," to be specific.

(7) This is where Pope is lucky and you're not. You have to use your imagination to see what Fexible is explaining.

(8) Important note, Pope's headphones block out musical frequencies but are (slightly) better at conveying people speaking with him face-to-face. That doesn't keep him from tuning them out a lot or mishearing them, to comedic effect.

(9) I don't know if I've ever talked about this to anyone else, but in Pope's right eye (the one covered by his fringe) is an immeasurably powerful demon that is only kept at peace by the constant rad jams in his headphones.

(10) Like, he's a beast in the sense that he's a magical fox, but also a beast in the sense that he just can't be taken down in a fight, and also a beast in the sense that he can't control himself at all know after so much brainwashing by Bill.

(11) Pope, in the mean time, elected to just sit in his wounds and hope they weren't fatal.

Fun fact: Bill Clinton is a Reptilian.

Fun fact 2: This is the 9999th gallery submission!

my thoughts on this will come in waves

first: I would watch the heck out a Sparkleaf and Pope bro road trip movie (buddy cop, maybe?).

second: Pope and I have had the same listening material lately

third: I am going to have so many jazzy, smooth-talking president nightmares tonight

final: any and all such collateral was totally worth it, though. this was legitimately a really fun read. seems like a solid start to a magical soul quest to me, man
