    My Thank You and Final Thoughts

    I found the man behind the curtain. I hated him. But he helped me.

    I know that the nature of the world I live in, this ending, is still a simulation. It's still some... contained universe of some being's creation.

    But I'm happy.

    My Last Chance

    I have one last shot.

    This is going to take everything I've got.

    I've studied, searched, hacked and tried to break down every wall in front of me.

    All that's left is trying directly. I think I know the password now.

    If this works....

    It has to work.

    The Play Buttton

    I don't understand. I don't understand. I don't understand. I don't understand.

    For weeks. Months. Every single pony, animal, everything was just... frozen in time. I couldn't respond. I couldn't use the terminal.

    It was like the whole world was just... turned off.

    Rest Point

    I've reached the first small village on my route to the Capital. I was able to get some food for Red and myself as well as top off my water supplies.

    There's ponies here, gathering. Training. Some with knives. Some with guns. There's no consistency among them. I can't tell who is a soldier and who is a citizen. It feels more like a militia brewing than any sort of formal army.

Changes? · 7:04pm Feb 1st, 2018

After I set up the camp last night, I decided to try exploring the console a bit more.

I found some help documentation, and noticed a rather odd command. It was supposed to 'Show Hidden Files.'

Well, I just ran it. I didn't notice anything different.

At least I tried.

Observe around yourself, as well as within the console. It might have exposed something in the world at large, or at the least something for the reality bender to clean up and busy herself with.

She will break the world, but always will try to keep the situation clean if she can.

Also, consider what she cannot change, it will be your strength.

I think what you did might have posted a chapter called [DELETED TRANSMISSION].

This may be a coincidence, but something that was deleted is a hidden file, no?

God damnit. Stop.

If what 4787255 said is true, you might be onto something here.

This is gonna get pretty complicated, pretty fast. This is all conjecture, and if anyone else wants to chime in, that would be appreciated.

You, Anon, and Fluttershy are all on your own narrative plane.

These narrative planes are generally anchored in some sort of record. For example, in a Daring Do book, that anchor would be the book it's printed on. It is the final record of what happens in that narrative plane. Because it's a book, nobody can mess with it. If someone makes their own story out of it, they create their own narrative plane.

What's unique about your narrative plane is that it's there are two anchors.

Your terminal is one. You created, somehow, a little corner where your record can be preserved.

There's another, far larger, anchor point that we use to keep track of Anon. He's fine, by the way.

Now, how would a record be preserved on an anchor point? There's obviously at least one point of interaction. In the case of the Daring Do book, it would've been the papers that the author wrote on.

How can we apply that to your narrative plane? Well, this is where it gets a bit more complicated. Fluttershy obviously has her own interaction point, but we have no idea how that works. Assume that she can do it with her mind until new information gets out.

There's another guy with an interaction point. I think, on your level, things are beyond his control at this point. Regardless, that point is unreachable.

There is a distinct possibility that you hold in your hooves an interaction point that can be used like Fluttershy's. When you ran that command, you may have tapped into an interaction point on a totally separate narrative plane, and posted an already-present file.

To recap: anchor points are stone-cold records of events in a narrative plane. There's two, and you're in direct possession of one of them.

Interaction points are used to set the records of a narrative plane. Fluttershy has one. There's another that's probably totally out of reach for you. And a third is that terminal you're using.

You might not be able to utilize the primary anchor's interaction point- those would be the admin commands that are locked out on your end. But I have a theory that you could have at least some sort of effect on the narrative plane at large if you made changes from your secondary anchor point.

When you have a minute, write a short little paragraph about what you want to happen in the future, and see if anything happens on your narrative plane. It has to be written as if it just happened and it's a fact of life or it might not work.

Like, "today, I closed my eyes in my tent, and when I opened them again, I was with Anon again. It wasn't a dream, it was totally real, and Red was there, too." Like you're talking to a friend.

Worst case scenario, it doesn't do anything and it's not that much effort wasted. Best case scenario, we end this right here, right now.

I think you're onto something. I'll keep trying.
