This was just a taste of my Ire, for those who doubted my Message previous in Time (Wait for It.) was genuine. Do not doubt me again, at your peril.

Except for HAL9000, because who can stay mad at a man who can wear such a hat? Even for calling my Truth heresy, he shall be forgiven.

To assuage you concern for Blitzgirl, her journey through my Creation will prove her worth, or be her undoing. I can not reveal her future until she arrives at it. Although I guess that does not assuage all that much after all. So be it.

Randall Who Created All

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS REAL AND MEANINGFUL ANYMORE!
Dear Blitzgirl,

I don't know if you got my previous message and I just missed your reply, but I got tired of reading the same message so I decided it was time for a new one.

I apologize if this is seen as heresy and accept any and all punishment, but please, consider my words.

Indeed, it is heresy. And yet, your words will be considered. The Great BuffyGirl has been feeling Generous Today.

Praise be unto You, and upon all iterations of You throughout Time. I give thanks to those who not only spread Generosity, but also appreciate a nice hat when they see one, because seriously; hats are cool.


I have an idea of what 'It' is, but I can't post a link yet.

Does BuffyGirl have a 2015 McFly Hat yet* ?
As a Timewaiter such a hat should be mandatory, I think :)

* I mean in the present, (which is now the past) there should be no doubt that she has one in the future.

Couple of quick notes before I coma:
* The comic is, indeed, still down.
* Randall doesn't read the forums (as multiple mods testified, although I'm not digging through at least 150 pages to find exact quotes.) Therefore, unless Randall is posting without reading, and is relying on telepathy to know what's going on in here, this Randall is a fake. I will invoke Occam's Razor and declare this Randall a fake, inviting him to smite me with a mighty banhammer as proof of his Randallness. Unless such a ban falls, I'm not listening.

Edit: and in the time it took me to post this, the comic came back up. I hate phone-posting...

Well, if I'm going to be forsaken, I'm going to go coma.

Maybe if I wait to wake up, Randall will have forgiven me for my transgressions, whatever they may have been. Or will have been.

What if I transgress in the future and this is punishment for what I will have done? What have I done?! What will I do?!!

Edit: Oh, hey. Somewhere in my mindless panic, I crossed the threshold of 100 posts.

Is he decrenneling now? At this point I'm going to have to agree with the theory that M&C's plan is to raise the sandsemencoffeecaffinatedbabycancericepixeltoner-castle* to the platform in order to protect it from the rising tide of Time.

I had still been leaning towards the loopist school, thinking that the rising liquid-to-be-determined would wash everything away and then recede. Afterwards, M & C would come down from their platform, dis-assemble it, and then have a sit down on the once-again empty beach (return to TimeFrame 1).
[/size]


And it will all start over?


Loopists predict that the One True Comic will recycle back to its starting point in some way, creating an Endless Loop.

Others believe it will end at some finite, specific, NewPix, perhaps with the long-awaited punchline.

Still others believe that it will continue endlessly with no recurring pattern.

Finally, there are those who predict an End of Time with no specific payoff, either through some form of comic entropy, termination of servers, or the loss of Lord Randall in some fashion.

No one knows for sure. All we can do is Wait for it.

Those who believe it will continue endlessly with no recurring pattern should be drug into the street and shot. There is a finite number of Pixels in a Frame, so there is a finite number of Frames, so there is a finite number of permutations of those Frames, so if the Comic continues endlessly it is in a loop.

Crap, it seems to be down again for me. Or at least slow.

This is what happens when you start screwing around with the Time Whistle!

As far as the hats go, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty well set. Unless my hat, pre-dating Time itself, needs a hat of its own??

P.S. I am Randall, but not that Randall.
We can rebuild it. We have the technology. We can make it better than it was. Better … stronger … well, maybe not faster.
Well, BlitzGirl is experiencing a bit of a title wave.

Wait, isn't that frame 603, not 602 as you seem to indicate?

Great scott! The comic being down would imply that the Maker of the One True Comic and indeed the Comic itself is fallible! We must erase all mention of this from history, that the comic may be ever revered as perfect and unerring!

Edit: Err..a new page? What do you mean the comic is down? I said nothing of the sort...

On the contrary. The transmission of the truth of the OTC through fallible human systems in no way impugns the infallibility of the OTC itself.
