Thumbs up

That was amazing, especially towards the end! Just weird but brilliant.

I love Nog's sentence and Form's interpretation of it, also Pitchwife's picture and basically everything from Rune's picture to the end, that's when it truly became crazy. I will treasure the mental image of The Witch-King in a box from now on!

Oh my goodness! "She had always wanted the Witch-King to think outside the box." - and the Witch King being a cat in a box - fantastic!!! And Nog's picture and TGEW's sentence - what a way to finish. Full stars!

I agree with Lommy. It's been a great read, especially towards the end. Brilliant!

And kudos to Agan for keeping us on track!

MIne too, I think... and I actually suspected some grim & bold origin behind this feline, um, ... phantom. Little did I know.

I'd also like to give kudos to Kath for the first picture (seriously, how else were you going to illustrate those verses? btw that's what Thorin looks like in my imagination, forget Richard Armitage!), Eönwë's comic (whose narrative style is obviously inspired by extensive exposure to P&A!) and Legate's following sentence which prompted the whole box -> cat business, Nog's philosophic spin on the matter (admirably illustrated in turn by Formy!) as well as his cubist picture and TGEW's hilarious interpretation thereof... I could go on, everybody was marvellous.

Can we do this again? Like, soon?

I was gonna offer to try to mod again, but when I was uploading my picture I couldn't get photobucket to work. It says memory full, even though last time I uploaded a PT picture it had something like 3/4 memory left... Dunno what's the problem, maybe I should just delete everything and start over, but as the website has been really slow I'm not sure when that's gonna happen.

I suppose the point is, if no one else wants to mod, I can take the turn, assuming I get my tech to work again.

^Photobucket is not what it was. I recommend imgur - I've been using it for three or four years now, uploaded close to 600 pics, and it's given me nary a problem.

Haha I rather thought it looked like Legate.

Photobucket was a bit of a pain this time (can I say this time when it's been 4 months?); sometimes the links that I sent wouldn't work... Might be worth a shot to move over to imgur.

I think we will need a person uhm... of the more disciplined sort.
Besides, I would be awful at writing the narrative.

I could do with another game soon though.
