I kept expecting you to follow "I have tried everything," with "including smoking crack."

ETA: Stink. I was hoping to be pope so I could officially ask for guesses as to how many that thing will carry - 40 seems like a big ask. Can I unofficially ask for guesses?

Wowterful ottification, Ronald! Image
This is an interesting study in how the OTC has morphed - slinches ottified the same song waaaay back during the Fading.
How about a side-by-side?

It appears that LaPetite has lashed something to the front of the "ship" - maybe something buoyant like an extra bag.


I am not sure how the Cueganites want to deal with the current.
Floating isn't a good solution. As already has been pointed out: They may end - after a long journey - in Dutch-Italy.


They don't necessarily have to just float. They can still walk inland in front of the rising water, and use the sandcastle only when necessary (i.e. when crossing rivers) and to carry supplies, dragging it behind with ropes.

Floating out to the sea would definitely be a bad solution, but there is certain appeal in arriving to the Chateau d'If by a boatcastle.

They are fond of disappearing into their burrows. Substitute "apoca-futuristic" for "prehistoric" and you're right on.

For LaPetit to show up on cue like that means she HAD to have added some sort of propulsion device to the structure...
Paddles? Possibly wheels to make it an amphibious craft?
Remember waiting a half hour for one darkening pixel? Pepperidge Farms remembers...
Note To Blitzers:It is advisable NOT to go past page 1130 until you've seen up to frame 2900 (Geekwagon Numbering). A lot is happening, and really, you do not want to skip ahead at that point.

It's 5am.

I'm 84 newpages behind in the OTT.

And all I can say is,

LaPetite. Has turned the Sandcastle Scaffold. Into a boat.

I don't even know what to do with myself, so I suppose for now I'll just have to coma for a bit.

But will it hold all of them??

Also is it just me or are the delurkers delurking more often these dips?
I'm now passing my blindpost of page 1209. I guess I'm officially medi-blitzing. (medium blizting, being bigger than a mini-blitz but definitely not a full-on blitz).

Wow, a lot of stuff has been happening. So many walls of text. I would have almost expected GLR to make put just 1 or 2 lines of the dialogue per newpic rather than so many on a single one, but we're now in the era of RUN rather that Wait For It so it makes sense to have everything happening faster.

Eventually so much will happen at once that there'll be black everywhere. Thus ends time.

[edit] WHAT!?
I clicked the next page and there it is: a newpic of all black!!

If a month or so ago someone had told me "Megan and Cueball meet these weird guys with matching hats who talk in weird symbols and take them to a huge castle to meet their leader who tells them the sea is rising because of a huge cataclysmic event so they have to run to save their people and then LaPetite turns their sandcastle platform into a boat and turns up to save them all", I'd have thought they were having a laugh.

At this point I wish to formally congratulate Flotter and manvandmaan, who posited on Newpage 380 when LaPetite first appeared that the cap that she wore was actually a sailor's hat:

Flotter wrote:Almost looks like a sailor.

manvandmaan wrote:Looks a bit like a sailor's hat! Could it be a seaman?

You, my good sirs, were right. LaPetite's hat, the only hat among the Twenty (and perhaps even the Forty) is not just any old beret, but a genuine sailor's beret!Image

Didn't LaPetite drag some round things in the final frame of the Fading? (Once thought to be Megan's and Cueball's heads.) Maybe the round things were wheels, so this is an amphibiraft? But I guess something that floats makes more sense.

Oh, and I can see LaPetite and BlitzGirl at the same time, so they are not the same person after all. New theory: BlitzGirl is really PizzaGirl from Questionable Content; the names sounds similar (especially if said while eating pizza).

EDIT: Ninja'd by NetWeasel about possible amphibiousness.

Thanks for the accolades on Paint it Black, people. Too bad nobody laughed at my Approxalypse or saw Saint Nicholas on his boat. I guess LaPetite's return made even a one-out-of-three acknowledgement no mean feat. Is there a TVTropes EveryonesFavoriteCharacter? I think LP would win, hands down. Which is also quite remarkable as she only appeared before during a fade-out for about 3-5 newpices. What if she is Evil? Or Megan's Evil Twin Sister?

Another question: does the OTT have an anthem? I was thinking something along the lines of:

And I would do anything for Time
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for Time,
I'll never doublepost and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now, oh no, no way
And I would do anything for Time
But I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Oh I would do anything for Time

But I won't do that

And some ONGs it don't come easy
And some ONGsit don't come hard
Some ONGs it don't come at all
And these are the ONGs that never end

And some nights you're waiting for it
And some nights you're running away
Some newpics you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again

Maybe I'm crazy
But it's crazy and it's true
I know you can show me
No one else can show me now but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long as your dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it

That I would do anything for Time
And I'll be there 'til the final act
I would do anything for Time
And I'll take a vow and seal a pact
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't all wait for it tonight

And I would do anything for Time
Oh I would do anything for Time
Oh I would do anything for Time
But I won't do that
No I won't do that


I would do anything for Time, anything you've been waiting for
But I just won't do that
[x3]

Some dips I pray for Cuegan
And some dips I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the OTC God Great Lord Randall

Some dips I lose the feeling
And some dipsI lose control
Some dipsI just lose it all
When I watch the sea rise and the bucket rolls


Maybe I'm lonely
That's all I'm qualified to be
There's just one and only
The one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You better believe it

That I would do anything for Time
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for Time
And there'll never be no turning back
But I'll never do it better than I do it with you, so long, so long

And I would do anything for Time
Oh I would do anything for Time
I would do anything for Time
But I won't do that, no no no I won't do that

I would do anything for Time,
Anything you've been dreaming of
But I just won't do that

But I'll never stop dreaming of you every night of my life, no way

And I would do anything for Time
Oh I would do anything for Time
I would do anything for Time

[NoClueganite Girl]
Will you raise me up
Will you help me down?

[Girl]
Will you hold me sacred?
Will you hold me tight?
Can you colorize my life?
I'm so sick of black and white!
Can you make it all a little less old?

[Cuegan]
I can do that, oh oh, now I can do that

[Girl]
Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Can you build a sand castle with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

[Cuegan]
I can do that, oh oh now, I can do that

[Girl]
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will ya hose me down with seaish water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

[Cuegan]
I can do that, oh oh now, I can do that

[Girl]
After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's Time to move on

[Cuegan]
I won't do that, no I won't do that

[Megan]
I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
And sooner or later, you'll be running around

[Cueball]
I won't do that, no I won't do that

*De-Lurk Engaged*

Prediction time! I reckon they all sit around gathering supplies, knowing that when the water gets too high they can all jump on LaPetite's raft and set sail. (Speaking of which, we should name the raft. I vote for 'La Boulangerie', as a reference to bakery/beret guy) Anyway, they set sail and become pirates of the high seas, with Megan as their captain and Cueball also as their captain.

I'm pretty sure she's mine, actually... we discussed this around Newpage 443:

Indeed, I missed that. Most certainly La Petite, BlitzGirl's evil twin from an alternate universe.
Of course, as some people (can't be bothered to look up who) have prophesied, she arrives just before Time is all faded out, so we'll never know what she's up to. :?

I don't know if she's my evil twin - she hasn't done anything particularly terrible...yet.

But, but... If she's not the evil twin then who are you then :shock: *hides*

The good/evil twin is an awful dichotomous stereotype.

If GLR is making subtle changes to the OTC because of the OTT (i.e he/she), it would be super-cool if the cousin will be introduced officially as Le-Petit. (or La-Petit)
It's about time.

There's a character who makes the odd cameo appearance called Pizza Girl, who nobody knows if she's a real superhero or just a regular pizza delivery person in fancy dress... she also looks a lot like one of the regular characters, Penelope, which the other characters often tease her about, accusing her of being Pizza Girl's secret identity... much like how we would accuse you of secretly being LaPetite... hmm...

I still don't believe he is, and the introduction will be "Hey!".

I deny everything: LaPetite, evil twinness, and Pizza Girl! All denied!

At least newpix m3020, where GLR fixed the mustard, indicates that her gender is definitely female! :) (Even if it wasn't originally...)

Also, I'd like to mention that I totally called LaPetite being the cousin.

GLR seems to not be big on names -- I'm not either, that's how I noticed. If you are talking one on one, names aren't necessary, and most of XKCD is one on one communication.

There's Megan, Rob, "Little Bobby Tables" (possibly named after Rob), people from outside XKCD, and very few others.

People that use your name a lot when speaking to you tend to put me on my guard -- it's like something they learned in Sales School.

Well, so much for propulsion... we need paddles. And we need to learn how paddles work.
