Re: 1190: "Thing that keeps slipping into the future"

Megan's dissappeared again? Digging behind the [substance name here] pile?

To avoid doubleposting with unimportant trivialities, might as well edit it in here. The coma-induced hallucinations beckon, and tomorrow (PST, it's still saturday Outside) is some sort of outsider holiday.

Anyone else weirded out at how quickly Megan disappeared? Previously, any character disappearances were prefaced by either a speech bubble, or contemplative looks in the direction towards which they vanish. Megan just got up, dusted herself off, and then was gone.
