The Tardis is beginning to leave with the pile for a future post in this thread. It leaves behind a penny and a bag of Skittles.

There is now a penny and a bag of skittles on the pile.

Spoiler:
This is not the last time this "pile" will be seen, as it is in a time machine!

Inside the TARDIS, there is a gaping hole in space time, and a reduced black hole. One light year away is a small pile of ashes, a lighter, 372 pennies, a bottle of sorrow tears, 372 ghost pennies, a freshly filled in grave with a headstone reading "Norevan: He got better", a eulogy for Norevan, Norevan's 0 postcount and a blank raptor survival guide, all on the pile. On the pile is the hopes of fixing this mess as it begins to grow out of control again. Also on the pile is a book called Hamlet with a particular page that was missing, but was taped in by xkcd follower, who now stands out of the pile. The remains of a broken frame are by the pile.

I take the bag of skittles and leave a box of peppermint tic tacs.

Darn. I rather liked the TARDIS. No matter, I can wait.

Not for the vodka, though. I drink that, then walk off, somehow sober.

There is now an empty vodka bottle and a game of patience (solitaire) on the inebriated pile.

As a light sleeper, xkcd follower's shenanigans awaken me. I hit him (or her, the profile page didn't say) upside the head with the nearest object, which happens to be a six pack of mysterious beverages.

There is now an empty vodka bottle and a game of patience (solitaire) on the inebriated pile. Nearby sits a groggy Norevan, whose face is covered by drawings made by xkcd follower, and who is holding a six pack of mysterious beverages. xkcd follower is out cold, with a sharpie in hand.

I am a He, as the not in the pile explains., and I feel thirsty now after I wake up. I take one of the beverages. I drink only part of it and Decide I do not like the taste. I throw up 186 pennies.

Another half of the beverage is next to xkcd follower, along with 186 pennies. A little note is put into the pile saying "Xkcd follower is a he" to avoid further Confusion.

I pour the mysterious beverages on the Norvean, using the note and cards as kindling as I use two of pennies to spark a fire.
I fill the bottle of vodka with the pennies, and add 10 loonies (Canadian $1 coin).

There is now a screaming bonfire and a bottle filled with 10 loonies and 184 pennies

The TARDIS chooses that moment to arrive. It spills out its contents onto the fire, putting it out.
I wake up all the way.

There are 5 empty and scorched mysterious beverage cans, burned card that once read "Xkcd follower is a he", a bottle full of 184 pennies and two loonies, and a burnt deck of cards on the pile. Xkcd follower sits on top of the pile, ill and covered with burns and still holding the sharpie, with a half empty mysterious beverage sitting on an unrecognizable body which lies next to him, fried beyond all recognition. Nearby sits a no longer groggy Norevan, who is holding the empty box from the mysterious beverage six pack. Scattered around this pile is the old pile which consisted of: "a gaping hole in space time, and a reduced black hole. One light year away is a small pile of ashes, a lighter, 372 pennies, a bottle of sorrow tears, 372 ghost pennies, a freshly filled in grave with a headstone reading "Norevan: He got better", a eulogy for Norevan, Norevan's 0 postcount and a blank raptor survival guide, all on the pile. On the pile is the hopes of fixing this mess as it begins to grow out of control again. Also on the pile is a book called Hamlet with a particular page that was missing, but was taped in by xkcd follower, who now stands out of the pile. The remains of a broken frame are by the pile." Next to the old pile sits the TARDIS.

EDIT: I hate making errors.

A small group of wandering pilgrims notice the pile and accept it as dogma.

There are now a few ragged pilgrims by the pile, attempting to comprehend the meaning of:

*On there 5 empty scorched mysterious burned once "Xkcd follower is he" burnt deck of on full of 184 two xkcd follower feeling ill covered with holding empty mysterious unrecognised fried now fully empty mysterious six box old in time reduced pile of lighter 372 of sorrow 372 ghost freshly filled-in "He got better" for 0 slightly xkcd follower's of broken.*

They decide that it means people must die. They begin a holy war, ironically against the people who created their dogmas. They a few before the factions devolve into infighting.

There is pile, on which lie the dead: Nautilus, xkcd follower, Euler, Norevan, madjo, and Kick. Near this pile stand the ragged, but surprisingly well armed, pilgrims, who have begun fighting over the meaning of:

With civilians looking on in tatal awe,
The fight raged on for a century,
Many lives were claimed but eventually,
The champion stood,
The rest saw the better,
Mr. Rogers in a blood stained sweater,

Mister Rogers stands victorious, waiting for a challenger

Well, naturally I'm obliged to make the future happen, in order to prevent paradoxes. I pick up the knife from the dead xkcd follower body, and use it to stab the live xkcd follower in the back. I sit down, cry, and await my own foreseen death.

There is now one defeated Mr. Rogers on the ground with one dead xkcd follower lying triumphantly over him, killed by his treacherous second-in-command Norevan. Tears of remorse and fear form a puddle around Norevan's prone form. An open Tardis sitting nearby has the dead remains of Norevan and xkcd follower.

A future version of me teleports in on a portable time vortex. He takes the knife and kills Norevan to complete the paradox, then disappears very shortly afterwards. This is now going to be interesting.

An invading mongol horde attacks the pile, enraged by a Chinese village that appeared near the TARDIS. In the tumult, two of the bodies (the older versions of xkcd follower and Norevan, still with knives imbedded) get tossed into the TARDIS, which then heads for the past.

Memory returns. Meanwhile, a future self of mine gets a time vortex and puts it on. He is clearly holding a knife and teleports to a past moment. All of the sudden he returns, with a bloody knife. As the tardis begins to come back to him in the future, he sets it back to the past many thread ago, starting this whole mess. Now the pile is clean greatly.

There is now a penny on the pile, being picked up by xkcd follower with a tome vortex on his wrist. The sound of the Tardis is fading away while he takes a moment to decide what to do with the Fur hat he stole from the Mongols.

You're right, revenge is fun. I sneak up behind xkcd follower, and kill him for killing me in return for killing him. The blood shorts out the time vortex.

There is a penny on the pile, lying where it was dropped by xkcd follower, who is now lying in a pool of blood. A knife sits near his outstretched hand. Norevan stands over his corpse, pondering the pilfered stolen Mongolian Fur Hat.

Really... You had to do it AGAIN... Anyways, the time vortex shorts out and becomes a small contained nuclear explosion, killing everything in a 5 foot radius. The remains of some debris are left. In addition, a new phenomenon occurs.

There is now a crater of nothing where the pile was. Everything is gone in a 5' radius from where the pile was. (Another) xkcd follower begins to divide 1 by zero.

I sure did. A triskadeca-dimensional rift in space time opens, releasing all sorts of strange fiends, from Azathoth to Yog-Sogoth.

The pile now consists of a monstrous horde of ravening things from outside the observable universe, a crater of nothing 5 feet across, and a xkcd follower who succeeded in dividing 1 by zero.

The presence of Azathoth means that this place now becomes the centre of reality, the crawling chaos itself, where no rules, laws or shapes are constant or intelligable. Everyone runs away screaming and finds a new pile. King of Frogs places a penny on this pile.

There is now a penny on the pile and ceasless, maddening nightmares from the abyss in the minds of xkcd follower and Norevan.

I see my chance and make a cloning machine. I go in and create a bunch of clones of myself> I then push them into the now appearing tardis and send them all back into time. That is all done and done. Meanwhile, Norevan decides to multiply 1/0 and causes a sudden collapse of parts of reality.

There is now a penny on the pile and ceasless, maddening nightmares from the abyss in the mind of xkcd follower, while Norevan tries helplessly to close it.

Turns out this was all a dream....

There is a penny on the pile. Norevan sleeps, and dreams of ceasless, maddening nightmares from the abyss, born in the mind of xkcd follower. Meanwhile, a false Norevan tries helplessly to close a hole in the fabric of reality.
