Just skipped the last 10 newpages, has anyone ţhought about a way to posţ the frames (other than re-hosting them)?
And who is attacking the casţle??? I don't think it's Megan since Cueball seems startled by that.

Sigh. Thou Shalt not subdivide newpix. It do be commandment #X-32+Y.

I shall explain: Each frame of Time is 1 Time Frame. It is a static moment in Time. The time between two Time Frames is measured as 1 Newpix (NP). One can was, "I stepped away for 1/2 a NP and suddenly we have a religion?" and mean that they were gone for approximately half the time it would take to transition from 1 Time Frame to a new Time Frame, which would be 1 NP. However, if the Time Frame changes, regardless of how much time has passed in the Outside world (outside of Time), then it's still 1NP. There is no exact direct correlation between the passage of Time (or time in Time) and standard measurements of time in the Outside world.

This morning I installed a Chrome extension that slowly immerses you in a new l_angu_age_ by replacing random words with words from one you want to learn.

Then I came here this morning to get caught up and the entire lingo of this t_hread seems to have gone haywire.

I'm increasingly sure that things do not advance unless Megan is present in the frame. When she is not, things do not advance beyond her last appearance: at most they change somewhat (or move backwards, then advance to something similar to her departure state).

Also, did The Object change size at all during the two frames it was visible? If so, it may be coming from an angle, rather than directly to one side.
