Thanks go to Bo (Beau?) and Toga for their posts. Since you've gotten probably the best answer for your second question from that girl with the three minds, I'll go for #1. There once were some fics posted here at MC. Some very funny fics... No, that's another song. Erm, it started with some of the MC members being given a shop or two that they'd be in charge of in that fic. Then we got to putting 2 + 2 together and mapping the town where all these shops were located, giving it the name of Hensonville. Sounds like a good name for a city predominated by Muppets living there with other peoples, along with their boarding house and theater. From there, it evolved into the game threads over the last two years where the HV town overlay overtook what used to be the MC Dorms (there's another story in how that got started). We generally base our stories in that realm with the understanding that further expansion or new establishments will pop up from time to time with new fics. If you need further help, let us know.
