Since they're being all self-referential

I like this. I like how Mike and Lawrence ask why they're just standing there. I like Liz remembering the future. I like Connie calling Elly out on being all over the map and pointing out how their writer isn't all that bright. I even like her wondering why they're suddenly in shadows.

Thanks, dc2. As apologyhat suggested over at Foobiverse, LJ was really handing me an assist yesterday. :)

Hehe, I like the "why are we in shadows" remark.

I actually prefer the depiction of Elly as confused, thoughtless, and frustrated to her portrayal in many of the other "fix fics" over at Foobiverse where she's actually mentally ill, because then I feel sorry for her, and poking fun at her seems cruel.

Nobody chooses to be mentally ill. But somebody can choose to be a thoughtless jerk. :)

When I saw yesterday's strip, I was dying to see what you'd do with it. Love the result!

"It's almost as if a university dropout with frustrated literary ambitions is writing us."

Probably because a university dropout with frustrated literary ambitions IS writing you. And is doing a slap-dashingly sloppy job at is as well.

It also shows that Connie doesn't have a clue as to what's happened. Interesting development, there goes my "gang of dunces" theory.

I couldn't resist. :)

Good point--and in FOOBAR continuity, Elly chose to throw everyone back into the past, without any compunction about taking away there choice. Much to love to hate there. :)

Well, I think Connie's occasionally testing how far she can go with Elly when it comes to what happened. Like here and here, and when Elly deflected her, she let it go.

taking away there choice

By which I mean their choice. (I need to put myself to bed!)
