They don't have anything worth taking. All we need is Time.
Regardless, a knightly organization would be fun. Perhaps the Knight Watchers?

So I should be phrasing it as "Watchman, what of the Knight(s)?"?

Has a certain ring to it, I have to admit.

What about:
"Knights-Watchful" (by analogy to "knights-errant"); or simply
"the Knights Watch" (now that a new series of Game of Thrones has started).

If we go Knight Watchers, then the Motto should be:

technically, that's who watches the knight watchmen, but google won't translate watchers...

Of course we're insane. There's no confusion about that.



Although this is not exclusive to Timewaiters. Outsiders suffer this too. I bring to your attention the mad hatter.


You mean ArchCardinal buffygirl? No, she's one of us Timewaiters, too.

No, no. she's the Madder Hatter.


Who said we are insane? That is preposterous!.
Anyway must go, my tea just told me I'm eating too many spicy e-books... Whoop whoop whoop...

I don't believe we have anyplace worth invading and stealing things from.

what about those dirty heretics who believe in "the outside?"

They don't have anything worth taking. All we need is Time.
Regardless, a knightly organization would be fun. Perhaps the Knight Watchers?


So I should be phrasing it as "Watchman, what of the Knight(s)?"?

Has a certain ring to it, I have to admit.

What about:
"Knights-Watchful" (by analogy to "knights-errant"); or simply
"the Knights Watch" (now that a new series of Game of Thrones has started).

I particularly like "the Knights Watch" because Watch can also be intended as that outsider device to measure outsider time.


Quite. And too besides, and furthermore: "watch" can be understood as a verb there, as well as two distinct nouns.

You clearly can't become a Cardinal, but I don't see why you shouldn't be a Bishop. In theory, I think we need another bishop to ordain you and the only bishop we currently have is Pope Helper. But since we have no Cannon Law regulating this yet, I will do it.
I, udscbt, Cardinal of the Timewaiters, Prefect of the Congregatio pro Doctrina Temporis, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, ordain you, peewee_RotA, Bishop of the Diocese of Cannon in nomine Temporis et Domini Randall et Unius Veri Tibulli.

Note: I don't know Latin, so that could easily mean anything


Hehe. Well, if the books are open, may I be a bishop too? :wink:

Well, Knights Watch makes me think of a Pratchett book.

so, maybe "Morituri Nolumus Mori"

3 blank frames in a row...maybe they ARE getting a bulldozer to push around the sand/solidifed semencancerbabies.

edit: errr...first post on the new page. That's awkward. I'll just bump the most recent frame.

I hesitate to mention this, but if "watch" is a noun, should it not be "the Knight's Watch"?

That's what makes it awesome. We are the knights (plural) that watch the One True Comic, not the watch belonging to the knights.
