The "Evidence Ryan Is Stalking Colin" List. :D
Brief Introduction: So, as Colin [and others] have noticed, the coincidences surrounding Ryan's Twitter, comments on PCCF, and Colin's story, [um, PCCF, if you didn't know], are strange. So, upon Colin's open request, I've decided to make a list of all the strange moments and comments as [hopefully] some evidence that Ryan could be, in fact, reading the Post-Cabin Cabin Fic. [And if it happens that he is, then. Well, damn. Awesome!
1. The Yoga.
[from PCCF, chapter one]: "Ashlee dragged him to one fucking yoga class and that was it. He ended up talking to the yogi for like, two hours after class, and he came home with like sixteen books written by hundred-year-old Indian dudes with missing teeth. He's gone totally vegan, won't even fucking smoke up anymore, he hasn't even had a beer in a month." [Brendon, reguarding Ryan]. Posted February 19, 2009 at 2:51 PM
and: [from chapter two]: "When his sleep-hazy line of vision widens, Ryan enters it, subtle and unobtrusive except for how Brendon's breath goes short and sharp at the sight: Ryan in nothing but his boxer briefs and a tank top, bent into a triangle over a blue mat on the floor, ass sticking up in the air and head hanging low in some pose Brendon remembers from Ryan's unwarranted ramblings as down-something-dog. His tenuous consciousness leads him aboard a train of thought that beelines from dog to doggie style to Ryan's ass sticking up in the air, and Brendon has full-on porno stills in his head before he's finished rubbing the sleep out of his eyes." [Brendon, having just woken up]. Posted February 26, 2009 at 12:47 PM
On March 4th, 2009 at 5:46 PM [and after several other references to fictional!Ryan doing yoga], Ryan posts on his Twitter: have you ever had liquid yoga?
[note: Colin replies, telling Ryan he should do definitely do yoga. lolcolin.]
2. Blog, Anyone? [or: The Smores]
from the first chapter: "Dinner ends up a lot more involving than Brendon had bargained for, because it turns out Ryan had packed a secret stash of graham crackers, marshmallows, and Hershey's bars ("Shut up, it doesn't count as dairy if it's chocolate") -- but considering the end result, Brendon can't really find it in himself to complain when Ryan puts him on stick-hunting duty. Brendon diplomatically suggests they could just roast the marshmallows on the ends of Ryan's fingers, but Ryan is somewhat less than sold.
It's on his eighth s'more, mosquitos just starting to buzz around his skin and the last sliver of sun slipping down over the treetops, when Brendon decides any more time spent out of the water would be a crime against the universal concept of vacation."
The week of Colin's first chapter post, Ryan writes in a blog entry: "That and make bonfires, I almost fell off of the cliff the other night trying to gather some firewood, it was one of those movie falls where you slip and catch yourself then realize how close you actually were to being in a serious mess. Spence came over the next time and we built a small wall to hopefully deter that from happening to anyone else. It worked, we made smores and nobody got hurt. Except Jon who picked up a brick that was too close to the fire, he now has no more fingerprints."

I love the way you describe brendon. that's so true to life, it actually reminds me of him. the curves of his lips rewrite history.
4. Satin Panties.
from chapter three: "Ryan's Ryan, that much is certain, it's not a burgler, and, haha, Brendon suddenly has awesome images of Burlger Ryan, some epic faily character in a Woody Allen movie, but none of those images -- not one -- compares to the one in front of him now, the real image, the one that's burned itself into his mind for all eternity with a single glance.
Ryan's in underwear.
Scratch that. That would be half normal.
Ryan's in girls' underwear.
It's hard to tell in the dark but they look simple enough, satiny dark blue, no frilly nonsense or bows or thongs, just a tiny strip of lace around the edges. It doesn't look like the itchy kind of lace, though, but soft, like the rest of the material, hugging the hipbones that jut out over the top of the fabric." Posted March 5, 2009 at 9:02 PM
Ryan's Twitter: "Hello my love, I heard a kiss from you. Red magic satin playing near too. Whoa Shuggie." Posted March 5, 2009 at 10:22 PM

i like it. i love the way you talked about the yoga, but i don't really think that Ryan would wear girls underwear. What made you think that? he doesn't come off that way at all.
6. IP Addresses
The fact that Colin has confirmed that the person who posted the Anonymous Comment 1 and 2 are the same person, and the IP Address is from Los Angeles. Where Ryan lives.
7. Because It Needs To Be Brought To Attention [AKA The FOB Blog]
from chapter 4: "Well, backing up even further, it's Pete's fault, because Pete had a very calculated reasoning laid out for why Patrick had to get a Twitter. Bill had taken some convincing, and his turned out entertaining enough; Ryan had put up more resistance, only for the sake of Pete's enthusiasm when Ryan finally relented, and his was legend upon inception, industry-wide, for its unabashed documentation of Ryan Ross's general tendency towards fail.
Patrick refused outright, and Pete reasoned that Patrick's Twitter would win awards for its epic content.
So on May 19th, 2009, Patrick Vaughn Stump became Twitter.com/zkcusztnew." Posted on March 12, 2009 at 9:29 PM
from the FOB blog: "oh the real twitters since youve been asking...
oh just so you know our twitters are: andy: twittter.com/f*ckcity (figure it out) joe: twittercom/trohman pete: twitter.com/ztnewetep were waiting on patricks... true blue. we love you." Posted on March 13, 2009
8. The Twitter Updates
thisisryanross: Fast, Cheap & Out of Control 3 May 2009, aprox. 1:00 PM
colinparkerson: lol ross. for you PCCFers, "fast cheap and out of control" is a film referenced in my book "being zen." just saying. 3 May 2009, aprox. 1:00 PM
[note: Ryan Ross, on March 4th, says "Ayn Rand, thanks for the help, i'd buy you dinner if i could." the next day, Colin mentions an Ayn Rand book in the chapter. It's an awesome coincidence, but since RyRo posted first, it can't be used as evidence. :( ]
