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.

Nine sign-ups so far - so, is this happening or do we wait for more ? If we do doubles we should be good to go.

I think we may want to start this up (possibly with the idea of doubles) and of course if somebody joins on the way, the better?

I think the important question is - who is going to mod it?

If nine is correct, I like the idea of running through the list twice (which I assume is the intent of 'doubles'): I think with an odd number it would mean everyone got to both draw and write, which is a plus.

That's the idea, yes.

Sorry for the radio silence, guys! My computer has been on the fritz. Turns out I need a new battery for it, which I will be acquiring soon. It's just a big pain to post on the Downs on my phone and I've been too busy to ask someone to let you guys know about the situation. It's probably a good idea if I don't mod after all this round. But next time I will definitely be up to it!

I'm so sorry for causing a concern.

Anybody else?

I am really extremely busy at the moment.
Spring is busy season at work and also in for Danish political parties/unions, on top of this I am also doing a course with the Danish Homeguard... What I am trying to say is: I really hope somebody else is up for modding, as I would not be a reliable choice.

If nobody else seems up to it, I could take it upon myself. Next question should be to once again confirm who wants to participate, as it's been quite some time since the initial sign-ups.

Is everyone still with us?

TGEW, you can't mod, but are you up for being a common participant?
