Delurking. I've been following for ages but not logged in and I've loved watching this thread develop. It's been so much fun... I feel so weird right now; the world is all going on around me and I feel like my world just changed dramatically, the way it does when you finish beautiful book... :(

Re: 1190: "Time"

Blind posting from 513 here so forgive me if this has been said before. The River is the thread of Time. There are other Rivers, because there are other Threads. The Sea is the entire internet.

Re: 1190: "Time"

At this moment, unless they dump their bags someplace, it can't loop - Cuegan didn't have bags with them in the first frame!

Maybe they're going to the mountains to find the source of the River (small).

Do not fade away,
Oh you great One True Comic,
I miss you always,

I will always wait,
Until the end of Time, which,
Might not be too long.

Curiousity,
Will my writing in haiku,
Mean I get a hat?

I hope this is so,
Forever I have waited,
For such an honour.
