The mustard retcon period, you mean. They're hiding it from us, it's all a government conspiracy! REMEMBER THE MUSTARD! Image

I think that colorized representations of One True Frames can be awesome - demonstrated already by the recent ones. They are not heresy at all; they are an artistic comment, much like the twenty thousand literary comments we have been making here. Strictly speaking they could all be considered unnecessary, as the frames speak for themselves, but they do add the necessary space between the frames which allow the One True Comic to be experienced even after the time of Time. So, they really are necessary, and the colorized frames are more than welcome.

It turns out that the roads curved somewhat, the curve was not taken into account in my mental model, and that opened a rift in the space-time continuum where another chunk of town could be hidden! So, I would be very careful about rectilinear assumptions. Raptors could be hiding there.

Wait a minute... VoronX, speaking from more or less the present??? You're here??? You're here!!! Now there must be a coronation. There are two BlitzGirl the Nexts! Sound the trumpets! Summon the Court! BlitzGirl - will you be the speaker of honor?

Or was that Vytron? It's confusing being the Pope of the Holy Contradiction. No matter, there must still be a coronation, as PhoenixRising has not been properly commemorated yet.

What did the mustard ever do, huh? It's not the mustard's fault it was there! We all know Randall makes no mistakes, thus the mustard is as legitimate as Megan or Cueball! Just because it was retroactively removed doesn't mean it should be abused like that, cast out as if it had done something wrong! I say we give mustard back its rights! No more heretical mustard! No more heretical mustard!

That being said, it's about time I collapse on a fibrous mass in a rectangular prism shape, fall into a coma, and hallucinate for 8 or 9 hours. Then I'll return to consciousness and forget about it all. Just another typical night.

The mustard distracted from the narrative of the One True Comic by remaining static while the terrain and Cuegan both moved! And look, how we all spent TimeFrames and TimeFrames discussing something that WAS NOT MEANT TO BE by the great Lord Randall! It was supposed to be another contemplative journey period, but nooo, we got mustard all over it. :(

To me it was as blatantly wrong as if seizure-gif appeared in the upper right corner of the next newpix. Which, I think we all agree, would be heretical.

My time for Time has been minimal for a few outsider "days", and I find myself drifting even further into the past, despite moving forward. My respect for BlitzGirl increases every time I click "Next page" and find the One True Thread is expanding faster than I am reading.

I don't at this point know when I will return to the present, but it is still a goal..

That is an epic cake, suitable for all 300-type occasions! Can we eat them both? :D The River cake was meant to be more commemorative of this Period of Time, and was used to also celebrate a 100th posterversary a few newpages back, so it's not exactly a 300th-post-specific cake like that one.

The island did not sink, we just reached the handle of the River fork. I refer you to ChronosDragon's useful animation:

So now we have a scientific prediction from our hypothesised fork. We should see the river narrow in the coming TimeFrames.

Clearly the coming together of the Rivers is a metaphor.

Or maybe it's a divine message from Lord Randall that Loopists, Loopiests, Numerologists, Infinitiests and Alltheotherists should put aside their petty squabbles and unite in harmony and rejoice in the OTC?


Clearly I am not getting lucky right now :roll:

100 posts does deserve some cake I guess *shrugs nonchalantly*, but the main prize is you get to use the word penis in your post a la Helper.

Where did they get those pogo sticks from?

And...

Why are they looking for a ford rather than a bridge? At least in the 20/21thst century fords will be way upriver compared to bridges.

Can we eat them both? :D The River cake was meant to be more commemorative of this Period of Time, and was used to also celebrate a 100th posterversary a few newpages back, so it's not exactly a 300th-post-specific cake like that one.

(What I'm saying is that I want to eat them both.)

I've no problem with eating both. Let me fetch some paper plates.

I'll get the forks.

As Cueball would say "when you come to a fork in the river, take it"

EDIT to say: stuff your paper plates, /me lays out the best crockery
