2007-01-09 [Yoruno]: Wow... thanks for puting all the images in one place ^__^

2007-01-09 [Estantia]: and on elftown too :)

2007-01-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: it's up on it's own web page but as i have no skill in web design and it's blocked by the school servers, i thought i'd put it up here too..

2007-01-10 [Estantia]: sounds good to me...

2007-01-11 [ArchangelGabriel]: quite so ^^

2007-01-16 [monkey2005]: i liked your story board shame it does continue on from when he entered the room

2007-01-16 [ArchangelGabriel]: You say that, but it's a continuous novel, this is only the first volume, I've got plans for another 10-20 comics in this volume, depending how far from reality i dare to walk... It won't be long before i post the next comic which finally has some answers. I still need reference pics for the characters, the sketch-up images have all been sorted. Still, criticsm is more than welcome, so please, any other points, do note them...

2007-01-16 [Yoruno]: Wow, 20 volumes! O__O That's a long story... I've never been able to plan something so long... ^^;; But I really like it... it's quite intriguing! The start, with those codenames reminds me a bit of the Matrix...

2007-01-16 [ArchangelGabriel]: Nope, I've planned 5 volumes of about 20 pages each. I'll admit it begins a lot like the matrix but it ends up as something much more based in reality. I love the name Squonk. Everyone else says it sounds stupid or made up :P It's very symbolic of her character in fact, the Squonk is like a banshee, always heard but never seen. Instead of a scream, instead all that is heard is it's sobs through the hemlock forests. it is said to be an ugly creature with horrible skin that is ill fitting and covered in boils. One man supposedly hunted the squonk by following it's frozen tears. He caught is in a bag but when he looked to see what it was like all that remained was a puddle of tears n the bottom of the bag. (don't you love being able to put more text than before in comments ;) )

2007-01-16 [Yoruno]: Wow... O__O Me likes that creature! X3 From where is that legend?

2007-01-17 [ArchangelGabriel]: Apparently the squonk haunts the hemlock forests of pennsylvania. It's pretty obscure, I've only seen it turn up in one, very old book, must have been published about 35 years ago...

I think Genesis did an album called the squonk...

2007-01-17 [Yoruno]: Oh... it reminds me a bit of the japanese Crying babies... whwn you're in the forest, and you listen a baby crying, you must be very careful, because if you follow the sound, you can be trapped by an evil spirit that actually cries like a baby....

2007-01-17 [ArchangelGabriel]: Cool, I've never heard that one before ^_^ published 1974 btw ;)Nasnas is a strange one, it's half a person, hops on one leg, has a sheep's tail, it's half face is in the center of it's chest and sometimes has bats wings ...

2007-01-17 [Yoruno]: รด__O What's that...? Reminds me of the monsters the spanish people thought existed in America 5 centuries ago... creatures with one foot that they used as umbrellas to protect from the sun, cyclops, humans with ears so big that they touched the floor... quite a museum! ^^;;

2007-01-17 [ArchangelGabriel]: the desert country of the yemen it says :S

2007-01-17 [Yoruno]: Uh? ^^;;

2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: it's so hard to come by a decent book of myths these days *shakes head* they're all so skewed by modern fantasy. Tolkien was the last true to life fantasy author i would say... i was very disappointed with Rowling when she introduced that basilisk, she should have known better..

2007-01-18 [Estantia]: To be honest I was more disappointed with the films, what did they DO to the books?!?!

2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: True, the films weren't very good. There was just too much detail, you can't do that and get so many special effects in.

2007-01-18 [Estantia]: erm, and they uterly changed the plot at times??

2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: To fit the graphics...That whole chase across the rooftops with the dragon was totally unrealistic and unnecessary :P done only for the effects..

2007-01-18 [Yoruno]: Now I feel like reading the book, just out of curiosity :P I just saw the movie and found it... slightly crappy ^^;;

2007-01-18 [ArchangelGabriel]: It's very rare for a film to live up to your expectations from a book. I rather liked the hogfather though, not any better than the book as good as a film of it could be..

2007-01-18 [Estantia]: hogfather actually stuck to the plot. harry potter doesn't. I saw how they butchered prisoner of Azkaban and have refused to watch the fourth as the book is my favourite...

2007-01-19 [ArchangelGabriel]: i assure you, you did the right thing.

2007-01-20 [Estantia]: oh good, I'd hate to see it mangled, though from what I've seen the dragon is awful...

2007-01-20 [ArchangelGabriel]: Worse than you could possibly have gathered. I propse a solem moments silence for the death of harry potter!

2007-02-04 [Estantia]: and hope that the fanfiction is a hell of a lot better...

2007-02-05 [ArchangelGabriel]: You know, acctualy, i think it might have been, and that is a little worrying ><

2007-02-05 [Estantia]: fanfiction isn't all bad you know...

2007-02-05 [ArchangelGabriel]: i know it isn't, i just feel that it shows a slight disrespect for the author. I think most people like to write stories or draw them. But when you use some one else's characters, it's like taking a part of some one else's soul and just twisting it into your own mould and that just seems disrespectful. I admit that much fanfic is imaginative and often well written but i feel it's a skill better used on their own works...

2007-02-05 [Estantia]: however if you stay true to their characters and worlds as well as write them well they can be just as good, and possibly better than half the things the official companies do to them. star trek is a prime example of this, all the thought that went into it originally seems to be being forgotten, leading it to become worse quality and causing the fans grief...

2007-02-05 [ArchangelGabriel]: but it's something so personal to the author, something that has been taken from the very depths of their soul...

2007-02-05 [Estantia]: and when the official trustees of those stories betray it the loyal people have to nurture them instead...

2007-02-05 [ArchangelGabriel]: but it just doesn't seem right, it just seems to add insult to the wound ...

2007-02-05 [Estantia]: not if the fans look after it better

2007-02-05 [ArchangelGabriel]: It's a risk i wouldn't want to take. The author should be the only one to be allowed to do anything to the cahracters.. It just doesn't seem right to do anything but....

2007-02-05 [Estantia]: but surely helping other writers to flower by giving them a world to work with is good? and from there they can make their own world.

2007-02-06 [ArchangelGabriel]: i just don't like to share such personal things..

2007-02-06 [Estantia]: that's fine for youthen,but others do.

2007-02-06 [ArchangelGabriel]: realy? i can't say i've ever heard an author praise people who write fan fic...

2007-02-06 [Estantia]: the good ones they do at times, and fanfiction of my stuff I wouldn't mind.

2007-02-06 [ArchangelGabriel]: i think we must agree to disagree on this one <img:stuff/cheshmak.gif>

2007-02-06 [Estantia]: ...You SO nicked that from me.

2007-02-07 [ArchangelGabriel]: We have much too many disagreements :P

2007-02-08 [Estantia]: but we never argue :P

2007-02-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: i think we accept that we both have different opinions. ^_^ It makes for interesting conversation

2007-02-10 [Misty Lady]: Hmmm....interesting

2007-02-10 [ArchangelGabriel]: very ^^

2007-03-25 [Estantia]: liking it...

2007-03-25 [ArchangelGabriel]: Thanks, I'm working on a short story to go between this and the next chapter. Also i reckon i can keep up with a weekly update...
Are there any really annoying questions that you think I should answer in the next chapter that i forgot to mention here?

2007-03-25 [Estantia]: not really...

2007-03-30 [ArchangelGabriel]: Are you sure, because it's so easy to think that everything has been explained whilst your in the know when really all you've done is confuse people...

2007-03-30 [Estantia]: just why the other person in dream looked like ghost

2007-03-30 [Yoruno]: Wow... this is starting to be very interesting ^__^ *waves tail*

2007-03-30 [Estantia]: O.O tail!

2007-03-30 [ArchangelGabriel]: That, shall be explained in due time my dear Estantia ;)

2007-03-30 [Estantia]: that's why I didn't ask it at first...

2007-03-31 [ArchangelGabriel]: So every one is happy and not totally lost then?

2007-03-31 [Estantia]: surprisingly no...

2007-04-01 [ArchangelGabriel]: good ^^

2009-03-22 [Hedda]: You should make this use the category feature (Like on featured art archive 2009) so that it's easy to read page after page. I can fix it for you, if you allow me.

2009-03-22 [Hedda]: By the way: Elftown offers free hosting (See the sitebuild-button on top of your house) if you want to make something more designed than wiki-pages and put up your own ads.
