Thank you, I will not delete the post - but it seems logical that my OTTercomicifation should be within spoiler tags. :D

Spoiler:
Clompety thompety
thundered the clerecy
headed by BlitzGirl and
travelling west.

Charactaristically
wearing her boa on
top of her armor she
did look her best.

Riding their coconuts
swiftly they covered gar-
gantuan distances
over the land.

Meanwhile they pondered the
lexicographical
roots of the language so
they'd understand

those who were riding with
BlitzGirl. Through gesture and
pantomime both of them
broadly conveyed

the life-or-death struggle their
family was facing sur-
rounded by water they
couldn't evade.

Coconuts thundering,
all of the clerecy,
heralds and scribes and the
timewaiters too

rode as the sun over-
head passed the zenith. Their
drive was a spirit that
none could subdue.

Dust from their coconuts
rose up behind them - a
cloud that was visible
clear to the sea.

But something was mustard. There
shouldn't be water just
yet, but in front of them
what could that be?

Water surrounds them ex-
cept for behind and the
impracticality
dawns with a lurch.

Turning around is the
incontrovertible
way to continue and
still save the Church.

"Back whence we came but we'll
follow this inlet!" said
BlitzGirl and everyone
followed her lead.

Soon they were clear and the
quest could continue, the
clerecy making a
seaish stampede.

Up through the valley they
raced as the sun slowly
made its way westward and
sank in the sky.

Colors were gracing the
heavens, and soon to the
daylight they all would be
saying goodbye.

Onward they galloped with
coconuts clomping but
something was blocking their
path up ahead.

Only by ones could they
pass through the blockage.
This wasn't going to work
very well, as darkness fell.

Does anybody know how to rappel?
Maybe we should get a motel?
This was not something anybody could fortell.

BlitzGirl ponders much:
One by one takes far too long.
Here we cannot run.

This tao is not right.
This tao is the only tao.
We must make it right.

If we fight the sea
we must do it seaishly.
What would the Pope do?

fhorn comes to front.
Could you use antibutter?
I do not have much.

Mix it with butter.
Run far away. Don't delay.
Boom-de-yada boom!

This is intriguing.
Antibutter has power.
Seaish power wins.

BlitzGirl makes the call:
Fetch the Book of Armaments!
The tome is brought out.

Glorious music!
First Cleric will be jealous.
He must deal with it.

Read from the right page:
Tiny trebuchet of Tim.
Nice delivery.

Who is its steward?
Aluisio comes forth.
His name didn't fit.

First, hollow butter
from the Buttermongery
of Angelastic.

Next, antibutter
wrapped and placed inside the ball
How big will it boom?

Load up the bucket.
Pull with seaish strength and might.
Release for Glory.

An arc so pretty.
Look - the raptor flying past
won't know what hit it.

Heavenly choir,
a brilliant flash splits the night.
This tao is right, now.

Rapidly scrapidly
back on the coconuts,
pink boa flapping is
leading the way.

Time can't be wasted. The
darkness approaches but
so does the sea at the
end of the day.

Sunlight has faded but
still they press onwards. The
source of the megaca-
caphony's near.

Off in the distance the
mist from the rapids gives
everyone chances to
conquer their fear.

Rising, the moon casts its
light on the waterfall.
Spirituality
has its reward.

This is the largest gar-
gantuan cateract
anyone's witnessed. It
can't be ignored.

It's certain nobody's bored.
Everyone is in accord.
This is an area that has not been explored.

Safe on a high ledge
coma in shifts through the night.
Watch the stars go by.

Glowing horizon.
Mist catches the rising sun.
Dangerous beauty.

The sea has risen.
They are safe for the moment.
Not for much longer.
Jose

Und der Haifisch der hat Tränen

In der Tiefe ist es einsam
Und so manche Zähre fließt
Und so kommt es dass das Wasser
in den Meeren salzig ist


And as usual many many great OTTercomics, everyone!


This in turn reminded me of a song, which I would OTTify but don't have enough skill in German to do, especially the middle eight:
Spoiler:
Stellst dich in Sturm und schreist
Ich bin hier, ich bin frei
Alles was ich will ist Zeit
Ich bin hier, ich bin frei
Stellst dich in Sturm und schreist
Ich bin hier, ich bin frei, ich bin hier, ich bin frei...

Das ist die perfekte Welle, das ist der perfekte Tag
Lass dich einfach von ihr tragen, denk am besten gar nicht nach.
Das ist die perfekte Welle, das ist der perfekte Tag,
Es gibt mehr als du weißt, es gibt mehr als du sagst.

@everyOTTer: If I tried to congratulate or thank everyone whose otticolorings or ottifications or OTThercomics have cheered me up, kept the OTT going, and added to the general air of wowterfulness around here, your browsers would crash trying to load the page. So I'll just say, Wild Applause‼‼ Many Thanks‼‼ to everyOTTer still here (even the ones locked in the basement).

I do want to shout out to Jose, though, for his double-dactylized AotC installment. I think I've said elsewhen that as a rule I just don't do fan fiction, and I haven't been reading AotC, but those verses sucked me right in. Impressive!

I had one DD about ready to post when Time ended and it suddenly seemed irrelevant. But the OTT continues on, and we even have new Blitzers, so I'll post it anyway:

    Snippety snippety ─
    Trimming the quoted text
    Keeps your posts readable,
      Scrollable, brief,
    Neatly compacting our
    Chaoticolloquy,
    Giving our Blitzers some
      Welcome relief.

I think I've found a related phenomenon - watch the broken English short film and then a normal English one - it took me a couple of sentences before I could make out what they were saying in the second film.

While the iron's still hot - Yappobiscuits mentioned "The Book of Dave", that's two - has anyone else read it?

That's approximately how I used it anyways.
I'm kinda bummed that the Voldeframe means I can't do my Thus Ends Time predictions anymore. It was approximately the only thing I really added to this topic.

You can still go back in time to all your old posts and add in more predictions of how time will end. Back there time hasn't ended yet and maybe your new prediction will still come true!

I do love that the collective noun for geese changes depending on whether they're flying or walking.


So, what's the collective noun for chirpies?

Uh oh, AluisioASG seems to be having some technical difficulties. Let's hope the crew can get together and sort these things out, it takes a lot to run a whole OTTer functionally!

If you die of exhaustion I'll introduce you to the afterlife. You could ask the Department of Postmortum Communications( for an ghost-internet interface if you wish. It's quite fun here, we get to be tortured by real classy demons.
If you feel like it you could map the Lower caverns of Hell. Nobody has returned from there sane enough to draw a map.

Snif. Yeah, that's a plan. Maybe I'll start writing death and doom stories with OTTers! Yeah, cool idea Yappo. Lemme get right on it!

Map's looking and working mighty fine, or so it appears to me. Also, mikro2nd is looking like a very isolated otter indeed.

Anyway, exciting times (RUN) continue.. I was surprised at the number sourpusses around complaining about Rosetta's reveals. Nevertheless, good times. Hope you kids are having fun in the present.

Heh, my mind read Exodies's reply as if it were to the post by Kazza3 directly above him, rather than the one on NP1247.

Treeish d-dactyl and ottification, jjjdavidson!
Well-wishes to Aluisio, who seems to be having difficulties beyond my comprehension.
And well-wishes to Eternal Density, who seems to be having difficulties with the well-known hazard of TV Tropes, as per OtherComic #609.

And to Neil, I think End-of-Thread predictions could be quite amusing. :D
