I may or may not be taking advantage of the boss leaving early to do a little ketchup...

Sad. :(

MistyCat, I know you won't see this for a while, but I loved your most recent post! And it was treeish to read again that awesomeful post from Earthling on Mars.

Happy half centennial post, Balthasar!

This was cool, Aluisio! I'd forgotten about your earlier dragon with its Buffyhat. And I'm sure I didn't quite understand your story, though I enjoyed it anyway. But I re-read it and didn't see any mention of an otter-shaped island. Or is there another story I missed?

I really want to see that comments section.

StormAngel, I loved your Otthercomic! By the way, every time those redundakitties come up in your sig, I have this reflex to try and click it.

Thanks for the Halloween limerick, ergman. Good to see you back to your normal self. (Well, as normal as any of us are!)

Really enjoyed see the dolphy in the Beanongs. Reminds me that I need to drive home by way of the beach. There's a huge anchovy population, and there are apparently humpback whales feeding right off the coast.

And is that a volcano I see? In the Beanong, I mean, not off the coast here.

Took me a millinewpix to figure out what web-footed raptors you were talking about. I think I'll talk about needing to align my web-footed raptors just to see what kind of looks people give me. Probably not much different than the looks people give me now, actually. :?

If you feel it's redundant in light of the list for the Buffydashery then I may have to agree.

I don't think it's redundant (not that redundancy is bad) since not everyone has a buffyhat, and some otters have different avatars with their buffyhat.

heehee, I was skimming through to see if I posted a comment I meant to post, and saw this. Mission accomplished, happy turtle! :D

But apparently I didn't say what I meant to say, which is how much I enjoy all the details and jokes and just silliness in ED's hotdog. Yesterdip I got a boost with the description, "It makes time travel possibler!" and I was giggling all afternip.

OK, I have to stop ketchupping for a while and do some work getting ready for my rehearsal tonip. I haven't practiced enough and I''m a little nervous about it. I have this lingering fear that during the rehearsal someone will say, "Hey, you're not a real percussionist! Get out of here!" Hasn't happened yet fortunately. And at this i haven't been having those dreams where I show up at rehearsal without my music, or the wrong music, or an hour late, or without my instruments...you get the picture.

Stay awesomeful, my friends!

Preview edit: Ch*rp, this post is really long. Y'all will let me know if my posts are too seaish, right? I'd hate to have otters see my posts and think, "There goes lmjb, blathering on again."

Hm, I seem to be a little insecure todip, don't I?

Funny thing, yesterdip I read (in the Monty Hall OtherComic thread) that the origin of the word Paradox was as the opposite of Orthodox. Which makes sense, but I'd never realised that before.

Earthling on Mars wrote:The Dark Lord

Chapter 1 - 2 - 3 - 4
Spoiler:
Gurrin, loyal Molpy of the Dark Lord, opened his eyes to see the Sea¹ in front of him, and beyond it the sky, black and filled with stars.

As he slowly came out of his comatose state, he became aware of the sound of soft crying somewhere nearby.

"So, you're awake," said a gruff voice to his left.

He turned his head that way, and immediately regretted doing so, as pain shot through his skull.

Another Molpy stood there, crouched low in the sand, staring hard at Gurrin.

"Just so you know," said the other Molpy, "I'd bite you in the throat right now if it were my choice, but LaPetite says we don't kill unless we have no other choice."

Gurrin tried to stand up and found that his back right leg would not move. Pain also filled his head again. He collapsed back onto the sand.

"You won't be getting away, though," said the other Molpy. "Turazal and I are making sure of that."

Gurrin grunted.

"Turazal, watch him while I go tell LaPetite he's awake," said the Molpy. He turned and marched away from Gurrin. Gurrin followed him with his eyes as he walked over to a small human figure kneeling in the sand. She was the one weeping, holding her beret in her hands and twisting it back and forth.

"She's crying over the grave of the Molpy killed in the battle," said a voice behind him -- Turazal. "Antlem, my comrade... killed by one of your comrades."

The other Molpy was speaking quietly to LaPetite. The girl didn't look up, but said softly, "Take him into the castle."

The Molpy began walking back to Gurrin. "Segla!" he called. "We need some help."

Another Molpy, a female, joined him and Turazal.

"LaPetite says to move him inside," said the Molpy. "We'll have to carry him. He can't walk."

The three Molpies lifted Gurrin up from the sand and carried him through the Sandcastle gate.

They laid him down in a corner.

"Makarga?" called LaPetite.

"Yes, milady?" the first Molpy called back.

"Figure out what's wrong with his leg."

Makarga moved to Gurrin's backside and lifted his body again.

"Well, that's easy," he said to the other Molpies. "It's broken." He raised his voice and called to LaPetite, "It's broken!"

"Fix it," she called back.

Makarga grunted. "If it were up to me I'd break the other three," he muttered. "Alright, you two help me set the bone."

The three Molpies were not very careful as they maneuvered Gurrin's leg bone back into place. He gave a yelp. The process was completed quickly, leaving Gurrin moaning in pain.

Segla went away and returned with a strip of cloth. She tied it tightly around Gurrin's leg.

"Okay, that's done," said Makarga. "Turazal and I will keep watching him."

Segla began walking away.

"Segla!" Makarga called after her. "See if you can get LaPetite to come inside and sleep. She needs it."

Segla nodded and left the castle.

The other two settled on either side of Gurrin to keep watch... as if there was any chance of him escaping.

"I'm worried about the rising Sea¹," said Makarga.

"Yeah, LaPetite can't keep building farther up forever," said Turazal.

"Hey, you," Makarga nudged Gurrin. "Your Dark Lord wouldn't have anything to do with the Sea¹ rising, would he?"

"I might have heard something about it," Gurrin muttered.

"I think LaPetite is planning something with that platform," said Makarga, pointing upward. Gurrin lifted his head -- it was getting less painful -- and saw that, though the Sandcastle had no roof, there was something blocking his view of the sky.

"What could she do, turn it into a raft?" said Turazal.

"Maybe," said Makarga.

"But would that be a good idea?" said Turazal. "It might just float out to Sea -- with her on it!"

"Yes," said Makarga. "We'll have to be there to keep that from happening."

They fell silent for a long while. Gurrin was starting to fall asleep when Turazal spoke again. "What do we do about... him?"

"Don't know," said Makarga. "Can't let him go back to his master -- we're outnumbered already. I'd kill him if LaPetite would let me."

"Hmm," said Turazal.

"It'll be a lot harder to guard him once his leg heals."

"Could we build a cage of some sort?"

"Maybe."

There was silence again.

"Really," said Makarga, "the best thing would be for LaPetite to go back to her people. The Sea is no place for a girl her age when the Dark Lord is stirring."

"Remember the tales of ancient times -- when a Halfling went alone into the land of the second Dark Lord to save the world back then?" said Turazal.

"He was just small, not a young child," said Makarga.

"Yeah."

The two fell silent again, and Gurrin drifted off to sleep.

Ok, here we go…
Spoiler:
It indeed doesn't mention any otter-shaped island. But it does mention “a lush land, full of the most varied ecosystems coexisting peacefully”. Which is exactly how I wanted to depict the Otters Lands in my old (and never finished) Otter Map drawing project.

The victim (Storm/my old avatar) and the parasite that infected it (a green brainslug/hat) are obvious. The first sign of trouble is this post's title (there was a brainslug on his neck at this time). Eventually the brainslug did what its name says it does… and then we got this and this. The consequence of ChronosDragon's attack towards Storm's brainslug are… unfortunate. And this is what our protagonist comes in to investigate.

The main character is someone y'll already know, or used to. It's someone whose history I'm mentally rewriting as we speak. Other characters referenced but not directly present in the story are likely to be seen again, too. Especially me. Or rather, not me, a mere virtualization, projection. The real me.

I realize now it's pointless to try to keep my stories RELATED. Therefore, hereby I ask for permission from my peers to publish future stories from the Gibraltar timeline. If allowed, I promise I'll do my best to make it worth.

And then, in the middle of my way, I wonder if I locked my room's door. But despite this shallow fear, deep inside I know I've locked it. And closed the gas switch. I know that, if I hadn't done these things or if I wasn't bringing everything I was going to need, I'd never have left home. Or taken the bus. Or reached my destination. Or done what I was supposed to do. Or come back here to say it was a success.

@BlitzGirl -- your birthday is mightly close to the alignment. Especially the ideal one when the moon has passed further away -- from Hawaii this will occur on the evening of the 8th I think.

ETA: Any OTTers in Hawaii???

ETA2: Never mind. The weather forecast for Honolulu does not bode well for sky pictures for the next couple of days. :(

ETA3: Anyone in or have a friend in Mexico? That would be a good location. Think how awesome it would be to get a real picture taken closely matching this scene:

I'd like to again thank everyone who's been reporting/suggesting Hotdog stuff here. It's a big help.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Postby Gingercat » Thu Nov 07, 2013 4:38 am UTC

So. I finally registered. Been visiting the site for years and years, but never took the step to join the forum...

Until comic 1190.

Now, I'm up to Page 40 of this thread so far in a single "working" day, and still somehow being productive (I'm an IT Helpdesk guy), and the story of a sandcastle is slowly unfolding before me...

Perhaps never knowing of this makes me one of today's 10,000?

I'm also unsure as to whether this is actually "complete" or not - I'm posting this reply in the dark, as it were, and likely won't see any replies to this, my first post, until I "catch up" to this page. I've seen mention of a progress-so-far animation, but I'll only watch it once I've done my Time through reading the forum posts.

That will take a while, but I am fascinated. It means that I'm seeing each new frame significantly faster than the original schedule, but each new frame is still several minutes in the arrival... So I am indeed still waiting.

I can only wonder if my resolve to not view the animation can hold all the way through. Perhaps a self-social experiment? We shall see.

Greetings to all from Gingercat. I think I will like it here.

Is the sky perhaps darkening with ash?

No it's probably just a distant swarm of locusts that are going to eat the Beanies.

After ketchupping I hold to that theory.

I look (and behave) too young for an Old One, don't I? BTW the last time I heard “Old One” was in reference to this guy.
But… fifteen? All this Time I thought it was fourteen! Maybe the Mods have given some late clearance?

It probably is fourteen. I was skimblitzing pretty fast, so I was estimating (hence the -ish).

Yes. In 11Ky locusts will be common around the Mediterranean Sea. Sometimes they'll cross a piece of a sea as a swarm to eat an island empty.

Well. That's some serious weather. Hopefully the electrostatic shock will short out the nanoswarm.


Also something weird happened with Panther Poke: it unlocked without being bought and relocked love. Epsilon.

Oh and Blackprints ought to have unlocked... Maybe I need to send myself a copy of my save so I can debug it.
ETA never mind, I had Blackprints all along but they were sandwiched between all the glass ceilings so I couldn't see them.

The Loco-Molpy
To the tune of The Locomotion by Grand Funk Railroad

Ev'rybody's doin' a Cuegan dance now.
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy)
I know you'll think it's treeish if you give it a chance now.
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
My cousin LaPetite you know can do it with ease,
It's simpler than raftin' across the seas,
So come on, come on, do the loco-molpy with me.

You gotta hoist your bag now.
Join an army, jump up, attack.
Oh, well, I think you got the knack!

Now that you can do it, well let's climb some trees now.
(C'mon, beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
Chillin' with the chirps and the cute squirpies now.
(C'mon, beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
Stalk behind the Cuegan, let's go for a stroll,
A little bit of compy and a lot of mole.
Come on, come on, do the loco-molpy with me.
(C'mon, beanie, do the loco-molpy.)

*molpies on guitar*

Move around the floor in a loco-molpy.
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
Let's join all our forces across the whole sea
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
There's never been a dance even Cueball can do.
It helps the OTTers Waiting for the pix that's new.
So come on, come on, and do the loco-molpy with me.
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
So come on, come on, and do the loco-molpy with me.
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
(C'mon beanie, do the loco-molpy.)
