114a1: Refer to the quote "He may be stronger than you, but you have one thing he doesn't. 'Blank'"

115: Females played by Author-Man will probably be named after something he heard in an anime once. Or a gemstone. One or the other.

121a: Unless the GM says no, in which case, Pixel will create an entirely new character or bring in another one.
121b: Unless the RP or game is GM'ed by MDM, because those will invariably involve some sort of violence, which Pixel dislikes.

122: In any RP/game featuring Natalie, there will inevitably be much angstiness and frustration.

123: If Book sees anything he thinks is cool, he will copy it and work it into his RPs, backstory, etc.

57: Things revealed by Krid usually take several hundred pages - at least.

64a: Neko from the Moperville RP 2.0 (though technically, the week was a timeskip, and he was asleep and not unconscious. And I think he woke up to eat once a day...)

67: Kylie and Amber.

70: Kevin.

76: Ed Bunny, and Sharzaxeshexsssh. Also Seamus O'Rourke, though the RP did die before he saw a lot of action.

101: The Artmoogle (aka Drayco) has final say with all things moogly. Always.

115b: Isaac Redmond is actually a fairly decent bloke.

126: Unless he gets bored. In which case, he will start using glop grenades (Borrowed from Shatterpoint, a Clone Wars novel). Or, have The Sentient Hailstorm start chucking hail at people. Or have Eve go on a rampage.

127: Joseph Donelson from the Pokemon RP. Also, Gaius Marcellus from the latest Steel Spork Inn. He has brown hair, but he's not military.

128: The only people who have unrestricted access are MDM, OOctavian the OOC AI, Eve, The Sentient Hailstorm, Anti-Paragon, and TingYi... or unless it's a closet in one of the Classmates RP's, then good and cool things await you.
