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! And how do we get him to read PWF? Or Boston? Or Iron, Neon Lights, and Weed?]. Without further ado: The List:

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. :( ]



for the record, anonymous comment 1 and 2 were from the same person and their IP address was los angeles. you may want to edit/add that. (i'm the only person who can see IPs for anons, so i'll keep you posted.)

lol i must admit i put in the ayn rand ref b/c ryan twittered it. you know me and my canon obsession. ;)

lol, thnx. this was maybe a little too much fun to make.

[and i'm totally keeping up with it throughout the story. i hope there'll be more! lol]

(btw, they never did tell me what custom comment pages are, and i have no idea how to turn them off. wtf.)
lmao. yeah, i have no idea. :/
Turning off custom comments means reverting your comment view pages (so when someone writes their comment then goes to read all the others) to the straight/original LJ view, white page, full width of page to the comment (rather than confined to half the width of the page and thus more awkwardly stacked). Most LJs with big groups talking on them do it, just 'cause it makes comment lurking and conducting discussions in the comments much much easier. Given that you have grabbed the single prettiest layout in expressive, however, I hardly think you could be blamed for keeping the comments pages custom ;D I aaaaalso think (as wanky as this is going to sound) that there's something to be said for having them black. I seriously think the fact that your comment pages are custom and black is kind of part of the 'atmosphere' that there is in the little kind of community living in your comments.

That was an unnecessarily long 2c, anyhow :P

Also - dude, you know you're officially a bnf now :P I'm fairly sure having a ~historical account of some part of your fandom activity is pretty much the passing mark ;D Hehehehehe.
well, that was weirdly fascinating. LOL. i don't even know how to change those settings, and i like what you said about the ~atmosphere, so i'm leaving it. :P anon!ryan can suck it. lol

lol oh god, i'm hardly there. but you're sweet. :)
I love that the anonymouse is now unanimously anon!ryan XD Made of win.

Lol, don't worry, I'm just teasing you dude :P You're not nearly pretentious enough ;D

(totally going to read your chapter the second I'm done writing this prologue :D :D :D)
Okay,this is seriously too awesome.Like,really.The first anonymous comment caused my breath to catch.The second one,it nearly killed me.I had to snicker/scoff/giggle because I mean.Really?Ryan?Girl's underwear?WIN!!!Plus he already wears girl deodorant...This is just the next step.
okay, I had this really fucked up dreams last night...
I dreamt that Colin was actually Ryan and he was just playing with our minds xD

great list... I was laughing so hard when I first saw the yoga twitter post...
lol, when Colin suggested it, I couldn't NOT do it, you know? I love making lists. And being a creeper. >.
well, who doesn't love to be a creeper? xD
