Loved this. Sums up my experience with the OTT perfectly.

Also, I encountered some Blitzposts from Bad Hair Man, who seems even further back than I (Or at least he was at that point in Time than I am now, there are no hints in his sig or anything that imply otherwise in the Present). In any case, good luck! (Though you probably won't read this until you're VERY close to the Present, relatively speaking)

Taken from the second scene of Acts of the Clerics, the Pope, in a voice that fills the wilderness, wrote:Behold, behind you, the sea. The sea is great, and big, and does what it wants. We are nothing next to it, but that does not mean that we are nothing. For the sea itself is made of tiny drops, each of which is also nothing next to the sea, but they make up the sea.

The Pope is Great, and Wise (though not like unto the sea). Listen to his words, and take heart, for without you, the sea would be that much less, and could even dry up completely, whether it wants to or not.

But that will never happen, because there are people like you here.

The Zanclean Zodiac

ᒣᐣᖚᕋ soars over the cliffside to find its rock in a new home. Every year ᒣᐣᖚᕋ comes to rest on ᑫᘊᘊ and to sharpen its beak. The first chip falls from ᑫᘊᘊ into the receding river. Until the last chip falls, ᒣᐣᖚᕋ will have its home.

While it was only a riverish ketchup, I need to repeat it when I'm less Neil-ish myself.

- Mayonnaise Blindpost NP 1762 -

Aw, how nostalgic! I hadn't posted a mayonnaise post in a long while. And people say the thread is going slow? I'm already 6 pages behind! This is the reason I couldn't ever do a BlitzGirl, I just keep getting sucked into the past. Writting "NP 1762" up there made it look kind of ominous for some reason.

Oh, is it the eyes of a kitty I see in the sky?!

Um... I'm pretty certain I'm doing it wrong :mrgreen:

Curiously, when drawing it, after so much time drawing by dragging the mouse in Drawception, I could no longer trace the kitty (which is, clicking to start a line, clicking to end it, and then, clicking and dragging to curve it - click to make another line...), I found it much easier to just draw the curves by myself with the mouse. This was a realization as I never would have thought I'd leave what now is "my tracing period."

Anyway, back to topic, related Drawception!
