This is so exciting! But why must we endure a blackout?

I am keeping this short so all I shall say at the moment is, mscha, I completely agree with you about Lost. Also, to those who created them, I loved the OTTifications!

I know this one has been OTTified before, but I was just thinking about what it would be like from Rosetta's perspective and I had to do this one:
Still Alive
(Based on Still Alive by Jonathan Coulton)


Spoiler:
This is a problem;
I'm making a map here; understand!
Now another sea will come and flood yours!
We are the beanies;
we do what we can because we must.
For the good of all of us,
except the ones that we missed!

But there's no sense crying over those who are gone;
you must say goodbye from here so you can move on!
You have walked too far to die - it is suicide to try!
You must stay here where you're still alive.

And I'm really sorry;
We did not know about your tribe.
Even though we asked the ones who lived there;
You say they don't like you?
So maybe they hoped for you to die.
But you came to us because
you have a future up here;

Now these points we've surveyed make a beautiful line,
and we're sure we're safe inside this castle of mine.
So I'm glad that you're here, you have nothing more to fear
Now you're safe here and you're still alive...

Go 'head and leave me;
I think I prefer to stay inside.
Maybe you'll find someone else to help you.
Maybe the Beanies!
That was a joke: Haha, fat chance.
We will not risk lives for you,
because you stole all our maps!

Look at me still talking when there's science to do,
and I look down there, it makes me glad I'm not you!
There's a torrent coming in, you can't fight it, you can't win!
In the Château d'If, we're still alive.
I'm on a mountain and I'm still alive.
I'm doing research and I'm still alive.
I'm in a castle and I'm still alive.
While you're dying, I'll be still alive.
And when you're dead I will be still alive, still alive, still alive.

I count 21 people, including Cuegan.

I'm so totally going to record that "Still Alive". Assuming the original author doesn't care...

Now I just have to figure out how to get the GlaDOS effect in my recording setup. Maybe I'll just do it without effect...

So, looks like they used to live in yurts. (And will again assuming the evacuation is successful.)

I count 21 heads there, including Megan and Cueball. That means there's ~20 in the hills, as we thought.

ETA: huh, I missed taixzo mentioning it. Well, redundancy is good, as they say, redundancy is good.

The GLaDOS effect is basically just autotune and editing out any breathing.

This is the climax. As was previously said in different words: Groups of important pix have become more and more frequent, and longer since Lucky. There is evident danger.

This is THE climax, not A climax. This is the end. Why? Correct me if I'm wrong, there isn't anything that doesn't really make sense that we have seen that we don't understand well enough (or are VERY likely to know). We know almost the exact year that this happened. We know where it happened. We know what is happening in the nature. The only things we aren't sure of are the things that have been brought up in the past few newpix, and what will happen. Almost all loose ends have been tied in.... there can't be much left, except maybe for a month or so worth of newpix left of survival with/against the other members of the group.

I agree. We've already had more answers than we got in all of Lost. (Yes, I'm still mad about that.)
This is the end, apart from maybe an epilogue (or five, if the GLR is inspired by Peter Jackson's take on LOTR). Image

(snip)]


This link sort of addresses a lot of the unanswered questions from LOST (though some of it is just theorizing).

Yurts! In the Mediterranean! What will they think of next!

I just kept hitting "refresh". I was frankly surprised to be first; I'd forgotten to set up the reply page with the image tag ready, so I had to start from scratch.

I'd counted 18, but I think you're right; there's a kid mostly-obscured by another kid there by the front. So there are 21 19 of them total.

No LaPetite. Buzzcuts are popular, apparently. Also, about six or seven are kids.

Quick search indicates yurts are traditionally an asian construct

...so, either the 40 are from the East, or learned their survival tricks from the east. Maybe. Then again, it's been 13,000 years, stuff has had time to percolate around.

I only count 20 heads here: 7 kids and 13 adults. That also meshes with the numbers we had before (Cuegan, the Six, and Twelve back at camp). Where are people seeing a 21st head?

Ottification of Waltzing Matilda:

Megan and Cueball sat on their salty beach,
building a sandcastle at the edge of the sea,
and then they noticed the water level rising
so they walked to the river to learn what it means.

Walking with Cugan, walking with Cugan,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.
And then they noticed the water level rising,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.

They walked up the river, past all the sand dunes
past all the wow trees and the pretty wowterfall.
Then Megan and Cueball came upon a homestead,
and built a castle in the little front yard.

Walking with Cugan, walking with Cugan,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.
Then Megan and Cueball came upon a homestead,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.

Then a fearsome molpycat pounced on Cueball,
"You'll never take us alive!" Megan screamed.
She whacked that molpycat with a mighty thumper poll,
and with one last swipe the molpycat did flee.

Walking with Cugan, walking with Cugan,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.
She whacked that molpycat with a mighty thumper poll,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.

Megan and Cueball camped upon a hillock,
watching and waiting for break of day.
Stars and the planets spin above their circle heads,
and the bright sun drives away all night fears.

Limping with Cugan, limping with Cugan,
we'll go a limping with Cueball and Meg.
Stars and bright planets spin above their circle heads,
we'll go a limping with Cueball and Meg.

Up clambered our heroes, to the heights of the mountain,
they found a tall tower from which to see.
In the far distance they saw a glimmering,
it was the Beanies, with spoken squigglies.

Limping with Cugan, limping with Cugan,
we'll go a limping with Cueball and Meg.
In the far distance they saw a glimmering,
we'll go a limping with Cueball and Meg.

Megan was patched up with Beanie Neosporin (tm),
they were fed and watered, and tried to speak.
After Pictionary (tm), about USB fluent Beardo,
they went to the castle on a high mountain peak.

Walking with Cugan, walking with Cugan,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.
After Pictionary (tm), about USB fluent Beardo,
we'll go a walking with Cueball and Meg.

Beardo was a librarian with a lot of awesomemaps,
With broken speech, she taught all about their sea.
It was fast filling with unchecked torrents,
and their dear forty they nevermore will see.

Learning with Cugan, learning with Cugan,
we'll go a learning with Cueball and Meg.
Their sea was fast filling with unchecked torrents,
we'll go a learning with Cueball and Meg.

Up jumped Megball, and they pilfered all the awesomemaps,
and down the mountain Cuegan did fly.
Down past the towers and on to a shortcut,
racing flood waters, their families they spied.

Running with Cugan, running with Cugan,
we'll go a running with Cueball and Meg.
Down past the towers and on to a short-cut,
we'll go a running with Cueball and Meg.

Will Cueball and Megan save the forty Cuganites,
and bring them to high ground away from the sea?
Or will they perish along with all their salt flats?
They must run and we must wait and see.

Running with Cugan, running with Cugan,
we'll go a running with Cueball and Meg.
Or will they perish along with all their salt flats?
we'll go a running with Cueball and Meg.

All the way to the right. [/sarcasm]

There are four kids seated near the front, one of them is most likely to be the one you're not seeing.

Why have we not heard any of their names yet? Like they meet and start talking but no one says anyone's names??? They are all 'you're' 'him' 'her' or 'my sister'. With 40 people you are going to be on pretty good first name basis with everyone else right?

Not sure about the beret. I think Cueganite #11 is the glasses guy.

A climax, but not the climax. If they don't die here, they have many more adventures ahead. It's a long way to the mountain, and slower with 40 people.

This is not the end of Time. It's not even close.

Time won't end before the Mediterranian fills.

Spoiler:
It's astounding...
Time was creeping...
the Madness... took its toll....
But wait patiently...
Maybe not for much longer
Cuegan just... took control....

I remember...!
Waiting for Time, bored....
Blitzing...
Those pages when...
The javascript ran...
And the ONG would be calling...

Lets wait for Time once again!
Lets wait for Time once again!


It's just a RUN to the left...
After a walk to the ri-i-i-i-i-ight
Put the map in your bag...
And seal it up real ti-i-ight
Then it's panicked RU-U-U-UN
(Unless your leg's still in pai-ai-ai-ai-ai-ain!)

Lets wait for Time once again!
Lets wait for Time once again!


Cueball dreaming...
The hot sun is beaming!
Beanies aren't scheming...
No, not at all</sarcasm>

RUN another direction
To higher ground for protection
Find the Twenty
Save them all


With a bit of a time skip
We're at the in-camp strip
Where nothing will ever be the same
Megan's got lots of cunning
But they ought to be RUNNING!

Lets wait for Time once again!
Lets wait for Time once again!


Well we were walking down the beach
Wonderin' 'bout the sea
When we came on a river
And said "golly gee!"
We climbed up some mountains
Where we met some guys
Who had some beanie hats
And a big surprise
They said our world was coming to an end
But we said "screw that noise, let's save our friends!"


Lets wait for Time once again!
Lets wait for Time once again!

Now it's more like Buzzcut, Buzzcut, Buzzcut, Buzzcut, Buzzcut, mini-Buzzcut, Bunny, and the three Bangs Brothers. And all the rest!

I thought the same - it seems the forum software will cut off very wide images...

Ah. In that case, you might want to check the redundant spoiler or open the image in a new tab. My monitor is 1920 by 1080, so I don't usually think about that.

Perhaps, if their bags are airtight as well as watertight, they can tie them off and use them for flotation?

Anyway, molpy down.

A sea-river sounds like a dangerous hybrid: big, fast-moving, and does whatever it wants.

@Valarya - I did not detect your Tennessee accent. Your voice seems like it might be a good fit for Megan. :)

mscha wrote:ETA that this possible misunderstanding is no reason to change the Beanies' name. (See: Indians.)

I have a response to that:
Spoiler:
See: Indians.

I have a clarification to that:

Spoiler:
1. Indians of the Asian continent and the Indian Subcontinent, and the country of India.
2. Native Americans, indigenous peoples of North and South America, regardless of country or tribe.

This is not a good confusion. But the use of each specific tribe is preferred anyways.
