Calm before the storm. Something catastrophic is about to happen. Wait for it.

That gender pronoun/name discussion was a fun read. We're just ~135 replies away from #1 now.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Maybe its just me, but frame 103, where he fell through the castle and broke it, initially looked sexual to me.

Re: 1190: "Time"

The nonlinear progression of time in this comic has been mentioned a few times, but has anyone compared the speed of changes in the comic against the number of people viewing the page? It seems like the changes are smaller around obvious end points like noon and midinght. I'm thinking this might be...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I think the reason behind this comic could be more heavyhearted than all of you are thinking. It's a sad ending, with the male figure alone with the castle he built with the female figure; the female figure didn't say goodbye (and didn't imply she'd be coming back). My thought too. I posted that a ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I hope this comic continues to update. However, if this is the end, I enjoyed the ride. I think that was the best 48 hours on xkcd ever and registered just to post in this thread.

Re: 1190: "Time"

Looks like things are coming to an end. I'd now guess that there will be only one more update at 11:30 PM EDT, and after that, it's over and comic 1191 is posted. – Michael Do you think so? He would have to a fit a lot of meaning into one single frame... Perhaps there's no ending explanation, other...

So now the question is what happens 2 or 3 frames from now? It's 10:42 Eastern, and the Wednesday comic should post at Midnight. Do we get a Wednesday comic, and before that a conclusion to this one, or does this one keep running for another unknown (unknowable) number of half-hour frames? Time wil...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Question: How do we know it's the same stick figure from earlier returning? Is it possible that an entirely new person joined her endevour? Also, I do hope there will be some way to easily access the different steps once this is over. I had this thought as well, although its probably more positive ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

This is becoming my favorite strip!! Perhaps she has left to get a camera. However, I think the only way this strip can end is with the total erosion of the castle and perhaps a new couple comes to build a new castle. Time moves on.
