    Apparently the ‘in story’ movie theaters have all the new earth movies…

      I assumed that the movie choice was influenced by the writer (Ian’s girlfriend) even if she didn’t name a specific movie in the episode.

      How does that work? If the author says “They watched Thor 5” or whatever, would they watch a 2 hour movie as part of their scene? Are the movies in story perfect replicas of the ones mentioned? Unless, of course, the author mentions a change? Are they able to see movies that haven’t been made yet?

        Excellent question Matt! Some more story-dynamics are going to be explained soon, but in the specific example of a movie, here is my understanding in conversations with Bob. Using the example of a book, let’s say a story author mentions, “Ian reads Moby Dick”. In the story, an accurate copy of the book, ‘Moby Dick’ would appear for Ian to read, even if the author himself had never read it. Same would be true for a movie if specifically named.
        Flipping to the example of a completely made-up movie like ‘Thor 5’, it would probably be more like a fanfiction story (created by a combination of the expectations of the author and any characters in the story) turned movie with the expected actors with no actual bearing on what an actual Thor 5 would look like.
        In the specific story Ian and Thomas are part of, no actual movie name was specified and so I expect that the movie choice was influenced by Ian’s desire to see that specific movie and would also be an accurate representation of the movie since it exists in reality.

          and I just noticed the first part of the question, which is ‘yes’, in story if the author said, ‘they watched thor 5’, they would sit in the theater and watch a 2 hour movie. In this case, a made up movie ‘thor 5’ since it doesn’t exist, though it would have the right actors in it and would be likely some sort of fanfiction-ish movie as described in the previous comment. If it was ‘they watched Thor 2’, then they’d sit for 2 hours and watch the actual movie. Time flows differently in story vs Varia, vs the real world (Earth).

            Wow. I kind of wish I use Varia to do that. Write a quick 2 sentence Fan Fic description just to watch a 2 hour movie. That would be crazy

    My guess is that the writer will have stopped the story just as she’s getting naked. Sending her back to the pizza place with an embarrassing explanation to concoct.

      Looking back, the girlfriend is named Rebecca, and she just wants Ian to know that large boobs aren’t always a feature for a girl, so maybe Ian will get stuck in a door or something.
