Talk:A Midsummer Night's Dream

Do we have any confirmation that most or all of the events of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" took place in the Gargoyles Universe beyond Greg saying something about it at the Gathering? Because this just came up on the Station 8 Comment Room and it has me a little concerned:

"No, i asked him myself in The 2008 Gathering if A Midsummer Night's Dream And Shakespeare's Macbeth took place In The Gargoyles Universe, he said yes that they both take place In The Gargoyles Universe, and he might use their characters for future stories! I know, i was the one who asked him (To tell you the truth, all i really wanted to know is if Cobweb, Mustardseed, And The Other of Titania's Fairies appear in The Gargoyles Universe which he will not answer, so i just asked him if the plays took place and if the characters from them appear in The Gargoyles Universe.)"

Now I wasn't at the Gathering, so I can't offer any more insight on exactly what was said. But if Greg said that both "A Midsummer Night's Dream" AND Shakespeare's "Macbeth" 'took place' in the Gargoyles Universe, it kind of calls into question what exactly is meant by "took place." We know that Shakespeare's "Macbeth" is not an accurate account of the life of the historical Macbeth - in the Gargoyles Universe or our own. Several events were either greatly misrepresented or did not take place at all. So is it possible that Greg was merely saying that William Shakespeare wrote the plays "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Macbeth" in the Gargoyles Universe and that they exist there as they do in ours, with little or no guarantee of their veracity beyond what we already know? -- Demonskrye 12:41, 31 December 2008 (CST)

Considering the source is a lying little thief, who clearly misunderstood what Greg says, I am not about to trust a single word he says. --GregX 12:54, 31 December 2008 (CST)
I don't think name calling is very helpful, but I do (now) think Demonskrye's opinion of what Greg meant is probably the correct one (i.e. that he meant the plays existed, not that the events occurred as written). Change it if you like. That said, some parts of the play did happen (since Greg has mentioned the changeling boy in the past). So performing a knee-jerk revert may not be the best solution either. -- Supermorff 14:25, 31 December 2008 (CST)
I went with changing "many" to "some" for the time being. I think that more accurately reflects what we know at this time, but feel free to change it if you have a better idea. -- Demonskrye 15:33, 31 December 2008 (CST)
