Another blindpost from attempted ketchup which has, apparently, turned into a mini-blitz.
Of course, we knew that there had to be an end to the OTC eventually. There was just no way the GLR, who is after all only another mortal (there, I said it), could keep this up indefinitely. Also it seemed pretty likely to me that the comic was drawing towards an end. But still, I hadn't been expecting the end just yet when it actually came, because there still seemed a number of unresolved matters. But that is a valid option in storytelling, not everything has to be resolved by the end.

Many years later, Cueball to Megan: "You know, we never again found a place with sand that is so neat for building sandcastles as the sand back at our old home which is now at the bottom of the sea."
Megan to Cueball: "Yeah. Sometimes I wish we had at least saved that bit of sand from home that we had on the roof of our raft, that we built our last sandcastle with."

How in GLR's name are we going to get the Mediterranean drained so quickly?

Same goes for me.

Maybe not. There still are several blitzers who seem to be in for a long-term haul, these may make the occasional on-topic post that could generate further on-topic comments. Also, other people on the forum may yet re-discover the OTC and make comments or ask questions about it - going through the archives, the comic is now presented in a much more accessible way through the Geekwagon reader, even though it can now no longer be experienced in its original format. And then, there has been so much creativity linked to the comic that was posted here. Of course, there's no longer much point in fake ONGs, but there still can be ottifications (by the way, did I really post the last one while the comic still ran?), image manips, other fanart - heck, the OTVO is only getting under way!
And with this, molpy down.
