Re: 1190: "Time"

Therefore, I propose a new form of poetry. (No idea what to name it.) Meter can be anything, but it contains 24 lines, and the rhyme scheme is EDCB AECD AEDC BAED CCDC BABA. There once was a Time when we all sat around and waited for IT but the IT never came Now most of us say 'The End' was not sub...

Re: 1190: "Time"

My guess is we get about a dozen newpix of looking like a loop, and then when everyone is about to lose hope, we get something startlingly new, like La Petite floating in on a raft (maybe that she was dragging at the end of the fade).

Nice work distracting us to look left, missing the whole collapse.
(long time lurker, since newpix 19 or so. Must say, liked the last 30 or so newpages, finally made me join. Having struggled to catch up over the last 50 pages makes blitzgirl's long path amazing.)
