@winstonsmith honestly, I don’t think she cared very much about the phone. She offered to make it worth Kips’ while if she handed it over, with no real crux to her offer. She gave her an hour or until she finished her ice cream. Doesn’t sound to me like she actually thought she made a good argument.
Everyone who participated in TMC, signed the book, answered the phone, etc, ALL were accounted for. She wanted Kips to say no, she knew she would, that’s why the time limit to decide was so fluid. She knew what she was doing. And she knew what BOS would do.
I don’t think she’s being punished. I think she did exactly what she was supposed to, and the resistance did exactly what she expected of them.August 8, 2017 at 1:05 pm #21999Lauren BelloParticipant
She knew what she was doing. And she knew what BOS would do.
Didn’t she freak out on Bryan and Megan and demand to know if they’d known about TMC being BOS? She seemed pretty blindsided that night.August 8, 2017 at 1:08 pm #22000Hannah SchenckParticipant
@daela Yes she did. She presented herself initially as this confident, stable woman who has everything under control and slowly but surely, she started to unravel. She started to lose her grip of control and that’s when the lashing out and inconsistencies really shined throughAugust 8, 2017 at 1:32 pm #22001
@daela You could also argue, per what many of your colleagues have said, that Joyce’s insistence we ignore other Experiences, that it’s another indication that she was wise to what was about to happen. What seemed to be her unraveling as you and @shankfx22 have said was what she knew we would expect from her. She also was able to test @bcbishop‘s loyalty in the process.
I have to adopt a stance, going through this world, that OSDM, as the presenters of this Experience, are one step ahead of every one of us. I’d be doing a disservice to think otherwise.August 8, 2017 at 1:58 pm #22002111errorParticipantAugust 8, 2017 at 2:05 pm #22003
Oh hi, @111error! I’m glad you took time out of your busy schedule to make a cartoon implying I’m like a Trump supporter in response to a polite defense of my position in which I make no attempt to convince any of your followers that I am right and they are wrong. With the utmost respect: try harder or fuck off. 😂August 8, 2017 at 2:30 pm #22004Buz WallickModerator
To be fair @111error you have said time and time again that you want to make BOS better than last year… so…
Either way this fantastic, the best, absolutely fantastic, nothing like it….ever.August 8, 2017 at 2:31 pm #22005Buz WallickModerator
Also who doesn’t want to MOGA? I don’t want them being creep creeps anymore. All for making the OSDM great.
Get me a hat!August 8, 2017 at 2:33 pm #22006Lauren BelloParticipant

I think that 9 out of 10 times, they are.
The thing is, we’ve always said that nobody is going to “win” this game. Nobody will escape without being betrayed. We’ll all have to lose something, at some point, in some way. I have to believe the same goes for the OSDM and those who side with them. Maybe it will be a small loss – like being blindsided by a participant becoming a leader. Maybe it will be a greater loss – like the rescue of one of their victims, or betrayal by someone they trusted. Whatever the scale, I don’t want to make the mistake of believing that anyone is invincible.August 8, 2017 at 2:39 pm #22007SageParticipant
@wanda102, you chose a side and are committed! Don’t let anyone shame you for participating in this experience the way you want. You are in the minority but that’s totally cool. Not everyone enjoys following the crowd, myself included!August 8, 2017 at 2:45 pm #22008
@daela invincible, no. But not predictable, either. And I’m sure not trying to win anything, here. If anyone is, they might want to reevaluate what world they’re in. We still haven’t met Devastation yet, after all.August 8, 2017 at 2:46 pm #22009KevinParticipant
I don’t think there’s any reason for this, @wanda102 has always been considered in her opinions of the factions here. Understanding her reasoning and arguments are worthwhile to see what OSDM supporters think of both OSDM and BOS. While we’re on opposite sides now, I can’t think that BOS wouldn’t be better off with trying to make an ally of Cristen. I was told that making a skeptic into a convert was very meaningful and Cristen is one of the biggest ones out there. We shouldn’t push her further away.August 8, 2017 at 2:46 pm #22010Meghan MayhemParticipantAugust 8, 2017 at 2:48 pm #22011
