Found
No more, no less
Title text: No more, no less

[edit] Explanation

Cueball and Megan have found each other. They are in love.

Both are standing on a hill, which maybe it is covered by snow, looking at the sky beyond where pink snowflakes are falling between the weird clouds. The sky isn't real, they are just dreaming about their romance.

The title text expresses this: "No more, no less", they are just still in love.

[edit] Transcript

[Cueball and Megan are standing on a white hill (presumably snow) with a grey sky covered with thick streaks of white, and small pink dots. All letters are written in lower case.]
we are just two people
who found each other

Talk about bare bones! --Quicksilver (talk) 15:22, 25 August 2013 (UTC)

Am I the only one who sees a 3 in the grey/poka-dot area? Implying that there is some third person involved in the relationship? That view is supported by the title text, I think. FlyingSandals (talk) 03:07, 5 November 2013 (UTC)

Nice find, dunno if Randall had this in his mind, but it could mean a future third person. The white (probably snowy) hill should also be explained. I did add the incomplete tag for future investigations. The sky isn't really a sky because the pink dots don't look like stars.--Dgbrt (talk) 20:00, 5 November 2013 (UTC)
