I hope there might be a "Making of Time" blag entry at some point in the near future.

Well, for myself, at least, and I suspect most of you, I want to sincerely thank Master Randall for a wonderful four month journey. Be well, stay well, to you, and yours.

So it has. This looks like it's really The End of Time. But why now? Why just shy of 3100 newpix? (Aubron has it at 3097).

I mean, it's a nice frame to end on, but man, it seemed like we went from finding The Forty to landing. . . somewhere pretty fast -- too fast compared to the rest of the comic. Dang it. I want more Time!

I think this is what they call the stage of denial.

We've moved from Denial to Anger, that's good progress for 2 NP.

And nothing's worse than Lost. Not even the Star Wars Christmas Special was worse than Lost.

But what an amazing thing this turned into. Over 3000 individual frames. Over 50k posts and 1.3 MILLION views here in the OTT. New cultures, vocabulary, etc. Many, many pictures of cute molpies/animals. Prophecies, popes, poems. So much good stuff.

What a ride. Thanks, Randall! And thanks to everyone here who made this fun.

This. I would have never guessed that a one frame per hour animation of a pair of stick-people would have ended up being one of my favorite stories and I wish to thank Mr Munroe* for the experience.

I predict that Time will now just repeat a couple frames with the flag waving. The End will remain though, as it is in fact over.

Also, I really hope that there is a Blag about this. We want to know more GLR, please enlighten us.
