Happy Timeversary everyONG!
It is the Dawn of Time - the beginning of Innocence - Time to celebrate the carefree life the Cuegan were sharing during the first wips of Time. Little did we know, when those first ONGs came silently upon us, what a wowterful community it would spawn, and how much each individual grain of sand matters, no matter how seaish the sandcastle it's a part of.
Top three OTT events / things. Hmmm... so hard to pick, and it also depends what qualifies as a "thing" or "event". But let's not overthink it.
's Holy Quest can't go unmentioned - it had a large hand in shaping the OTT into the wowterful thing it is today. But to pick a singular event, I'd say the "Boom de Yada" Present Present she made, and that Yappo later orchestrated.
2: OTTcoloreds, specifically the very first one, which made me go "wow!". That one was by mscha
's movie "Time - what have you done to me?" (especially its very last frames)
4: Actually seeing
the OTTers at the OTTcon. Avatars and text are nice, but there's something about seeing the real people in action behind them.
5 is right out! There's so much more though... like the performances of Blitz Like the Wind
and Starry Starry Night
(so touching June Bug
!) and there are things, like the wiki and edfel
's map, that I didn't appreciate at the time (seriously? a wiki??
). But all in all, there's nothing I don't treasure here; this is such a warm and welcoming community. Smopu hvala nuvi dict amuah! She also knows what you saw. It makes her smile.
Thundering applause for the still-a-mystery ONGs! Awesomefully steakish baobab there! I consider that to be canon also. (And while I'm at it, the visitation/wedding ONGs are also canonical in my book.) So... whodunit? ChronosDragon
is a possibility, but it's not BlitzGirl
's style. CD
is still in the running, though I don't know if he could squeeze it in his first year at college. Many NP ago someOTTer mentioned doing something special in Steam. That's where my money goes.
I wonder if the original blue-stuff poured into the sea was a kind of radioactive dye, to measure the flow, and upon concluding that there was mustard, bring in the cement mixers. And that the printer cartridges were sets of thin laminate-like material which was being put together, postage-stamp fashion, to form the frame (I'd been wondering where the material came from; I just figured out it could be like old-style razor-blade cartridges. Yeah, I'm not all that raptorish in the kopf.
) I also wonder about the Christmas lights in the trees. Perhaps an artifact of fade, perhaps lightningfacebugs.
And to the angel davean
(I know better than to capitalize his name!), not only thanks for your seaish efforts in migrating the forum, but also for stopping by here specifically.

I think so.
And molpish thoughts for Eternal Density
as he awaits results. Sana te sana, colita de rana. Si no sana hoy, te sana mañana.
Jose(note - 4 is just a seaish 3, and redundancy is molpish!)
