Wiki XXXIV

So I added some new stuff. Hoping to get some feedback. I introduced narrative in reaction to the fact that I thought the wiki was too sprawling, too tenuously connected to be interesting for me to read. I wanted someway to establish intertextuality between posts beyond the obvious 'quotes about war and love.' I no this is a little antithetical to our interest in exploring the ability of a wiki to defy traditional narrative boundaries. I am not however proposing a turn to a conceived hyper-fiction. I just got to thinking about how these posts are all connected, and beyond thematically I decided it was by people. I also have always been interested in the erasing of boundaries. My idea of beginning this was erasing the boundaries between: my writing and Remarque's, eras of time, limitations of space, differences in wiki posts. I guess what I conceptualized was our posts as converging through experiences of re-fictionalized characters. Timeless themes literally becoming timeless.

So of course I'm hoping you'll defuse and re-conceptualize, unfictionalize, re-re-fictionalize, and perhaps even kill this underdeveloped idea, if it doesn't suit your ideas of what the wiki is and should accomplish.

That said I don't know that what I wrote is terribly compelling. Certainly not without being expanded some. I thought grabbing a character straight from one of the pulled texts and suggesting an explanation with einstenian space-time was clever, but now I think maybe it was just facile.

Any ideas on making it run smoother? Does anyone else feel the need to establish more of a conversation between our pulled prose, or do you think it stands alone, its relations in theme enough to keep it interesting? Other ideas where we should go, where we should stay? Of course feel free to not respond and just do it, and make me/us figure out what the hell the deal is (I considered that before becoming self-conscious/saw benefit in getting feedback on the origin of my ideas)

Also I've been making my links colored not because I think that is how it should be, but because I was having so much trouble finding everyone else's. I thought it might be helpful for now.

Also I don't like Dane Cook.
