The Susan Novak Diaries

Post by Ryme »

Susan Novak here. Researcher, teacher, friend of heroes. This is just a small sampling of the 413 messages I found when I checked my long-lost Twilight mailbox today. It appears that I've had a much larger influence on the heroic community than I had ever realized, due entirely to my 77 Habits of Highly Effective Heroes manual.

Also, sorry about the hostility when we first met; I was a bit on edge for what seem to be obvious reasons. I assume you aready know about the emotion projector responsible for the riots, but if not I'd be glad to fill you in on the details that I'm aware of.

By highlighting, isloating and even ignoring my internal flaws, i have managed to delve deeper into my alter ego and heroic persona, as well as become more efficient in regards to time management (giving me more vital minutes per day to spend sewing up holes on my costume). So thankyou once again

This is not to encourage more of these, really, as logging in to an account with 400 messages takes forever, and I don't like the idea that it's sort of wasting resources. Still, some of the entries have been entertaining and I wanted to share. More to come, when I get the chance.

From the "are you real or are you a bot" files, and also the "I don't actually read game narrative" collection. Kept anonymous for various reasons:
Oh hey, thanks. :) Have I seen you in chat?
Although you are probably quite fictional, I still want to thank you for your book. I read it and it has helped me greatly!
Thanks a lot, Twilight character who probably won't actually read this! I really appreciate it, and all your scare quotes.
have we met?
I'm guessing this is an auto message
Unaware if you exist or not. I suppose that's the metaphysical conundrum of those that run around in their underpants.
thank you, why did you send me this? i'm grateful and all, but still...
anyway i dont have much bu here, goodwill and all that. Included item: cup of coffee
admin controlled npc? or a programmed response to turning level 6? im think the latter, regardless thank you anyway.
Um.... who are you anyway?
huh? who is this?
what the heck?
Thank You to what do i owe the pleasure?
I wonder who gets this message
ty npc
Thanks a lot. I don't know if you're the real character or just someone pretending to be, but whoever you are, thanks a lot! It was a lot of help. Here's 50 chips for thanks. I'd give more, but I'm saving for a level up right now, so I need all the chips I can get. Thanks, anyway, and I included a bonus item too.
You were sent: 50 chips
Have some coffee, even NPCs enjoy coffee don't they?
Of course I personally hate coffee, wait why am i talking to a computer... does that mean I'm talking to myself? Oh god.... I should shut up now.
You were sent: 1 chips
Included item: fancy latte (quantity 1)
Thank you for your consideration. No offense, but I didn't think you were real. (part of the story. Can I give you anything for the book?
Your real player or mashine?
wow ! thank you. i had no idea you were a actual player ! thats very cool. thank you again
Thank you sooooo much for that book! Wow, I actually thought you were just another character in the game, I didnt realize you were a real person! I feel like such a n00b! Since you sent me something, can you make use of a digital voice recorder? I dont think Im going to need it. Just let me know! Thank again!

Howdy Susan,
Thanks for the Manual, it's left my face supernaturally smooth and in half the time too! Oh, and saves me a lot of time when doing "errands". I found this interesting pearl. It seems to give you a mental boost just by holding it. Thought you'd be interested. Got to go, have a good one!

They are unsure if it is an NPC, or not paying attention.

All of these were sent, yes. Whether or not they're serious, joking, hopeful, or somewhere in between, I can't say for many of them.

I know for sure I sent off one!
I seriously thought it was an actual part of the program and figured if I sent a reply, something else might happen!
(I haven't seen mine yet! I sent a blessing!)

Mr Q here, with yet another question.
Of the 675 posted members of this forum, how many are actually in possession of only one account?
Curiosity all but demands to know, but if there's no way to tell (for sure) then oh well.
Figured with the multiple replies you've received, there might be a way to tell?

I forgot how much fun those were to read.

Ryme, if I send the appropriate number of chips to the #21 account, could you put all the gifts in a Memento Display?

I've sent her cosmic crystals, thinking that she would be interested in them. Of course, I knew she was an NPC, but... I guess I felt like roleplaying.
