Re: 1190: "Time"

I haven't posted much, but I, too, have been with the OTC and OTT since nearly the beginning. After so long, I feel so attached to the OTC, and it's hard to believe it's over. At first, many posited that it was all an elaborate April Fool's Day joke. Now, I hope that "The End" was just a j...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Book suggestions:

Garth Nix - Sabriel, Lirael, Abhorsen - Easy but engaging
Terry Pratchet - Discworld - Hilarious and usually quick
Neil Gaiman - Neverwhere - Just awesome

Re: 1190: "Time"

So I was going back through the whole of Time thus far. In hindsight, it seems likely this incident was precipitated by the change in water density and Megan's relative buoyancy, back when the change was still to readily noticeable to Cuegan.
