I'm just so excited about this, I love this site, so I had to share. :)

Ah, I was wondering when you were going to see that! I'm a Troper myself (my Handle is Angelwing, after a character in my Fantasy novel) and I was the one who put the Trope "Psychic Powers" on there!

Awesome, thanks GR! Hehe, we did notice a few things that were slightly off if you're interested in doing any editing :)

Finger in the Mail: the eye was sent by the Oracle, not the Wise Monkey

Colour Coded--actually each of Erica's different powers has a different-colored aura, in addition to Cordy's sphere being a different color from Erica's

Also, Eye Scream is clearly missing. :)

But, Finger In The Mail does link to Eye Scream though!

Oh, and I was the one who wrote that little extra sidenote thingy on the The Silver Lining YMMV page that talked about That One Puzzle:



Quote
That One Puzzle: Opening Pandora's Box. At the start, you have four wheels of symbols, spinning slowly. Each symbol corresponds to a quarter of a Zodiac sign. You must click the symbols to create each sign. Not so bad at the start. But after a few signs are complete, the wheels speed up. After a few more, they fade in and out. Then they start switching places. Then they start flying all over the screen. And yes, you have to create all twelve signs. Oh, and if you choose the wrong last symbol three times, the image breaks and you have to start over again.
◦ However! That's only if you pick the "Normal" setting. If you pick "Easy", then it goes: spin, spin faster, fade in and out (two sections at a time).

Ohh, there it is. Huh, the spoiler text links usually show up more clearly than that, with an underline or something visible even through the spoiler text block.

Well, I added Eye Scream anyway, alongside Tongue Trauma and Ear Ache. I think I'll edit the Color-Coded one too, but I want to watch Toe's run again so I get things right.

Oh, also thought of another Trope:

Foreshadowing: E.G. During the prologue of Cog 1, look closely at the wheel device that Erica uses to get into the lair. Now, look at the prominent Psi symbol that's in Cog 2. Look familiar?

Thanks!

...wait, is the Psi symbol on the wheel and I seriously missed it this whole time? ALso, that would be odd for other reasons, namely that the symbol is the Oracle's thing, not the Cain Killers'

Just looked--huh. I think that was possibly coincidence, actually, but yeah, the symbol is there.

Well, it IS The Oracle who has been planning all this. Also, going back through Toe's LP is going to very interesting, as I'll be able to see all those little hints of foreshadowing more clearly.
