But "really" ends with y.
For me, that's enough.

The second R would have been redundant. A Y was used instead because it's not really redundant.

For decree: does Aluisio not believe in making decrees?

From what I know of Vital Hotdog Function, it's probably just an ironic album title.

We accidentally the entire hotdog. Is this steambottle?

Sorry I haven't shared any Mage Stones stuff lately. I'm making gradual progress. I'm finding more molpish ways of brainstorming that avoid actual brain storms (i.e. an unproductive state of being overwhelmed by competing thoughts).
Anyhow, I'm currently thinking the title I'll actually use is Daughters of the Mage Stones. Followed by Sisters of the Mage Stones.
Also, Charity is back in the opening scene, which is right and molpish.

It just occurred to me that the newpix featured in that hOTTel room is one regarding chirping. My mind may have gone to a guttery place.

Spoiler:
The sea is visibly rising. Naturally there is much discussion about the meaning of this in the OTT. Is this an arbitrary sea-rise from GLR's imagination, or is it based on some sort of existing tidal pattern? AussieJono on NP 107 floats the possibility of the body of water next to Cuegan being the Mediterranean based on the limited tidal activity, and a few others seem to concur, but I think this deduction gets lost over Time with everything else going on.

There's also some question about the eventual complexity of the OTC. Will it end on April Fool's Dip? Will it last hundreds of frames to show a gradual sandcastle destruction by the sea? Will Cuegan's creation be destroyed in some XKCDish wacky manner?

As Cueball starts to connect the castles, sanity once more begins to erode on the thread. Posters are analyzing their past selves and their past analyses of the OTC. The newest idea for castle building material is dandruff, though there is some debate over whether Cuegan used their own dandruff or collected the dandruff of others to construct it.

The first sinister hints of Madness are beginning - the global announcement has been posted. Only a few protoOTTers are voicing worries so far (probably because the majority of the thread population is new to the fora, and they are unaware what is coming).

So, is this actually a comic, or a social experiment?

I'm inclined to say that it was a joint effort: Randall made the comic, and the needle-pulled thing made itself a social experiment after enough Time had passed. No indicators point to the social effects being an intended or even imagined result.

Treeish OTTcolor pelrigg! It's good to see some new ones every now and then. :)

And wowtreeful Time Hotel Room taixzo.... though that's more of a Time themed hotel. An actual Time hotel would be where Time spent time when away from home. If Time takes it on the road, that's where the NewFrames would sleep. Though given that there's a NewFrame sleeping in that very room, maybe that is a True Time Hotel. Imagine sleeping with Time itself.... the mind boggles!

Oh, and Accidentally Released Music is much better than Deliberately Released Music, wouldn't you say?

A raptorish consultation of the oracle of webvenience yields the facts that while accidentally released music is a real though rare phenomenon, it seems that no one has yet 'died in an accidentally released music accident'. Though there are some stuntpersons who have died in fliming a music video accidents, which is seaishly unmolpish :(
