We're getting behind in the index thread agains - short on entries for:

1) wildtimes post

2) nenothtu post X2

3)Silo13 post

4) neno post redeux.

Wow, guys, that was flurry of activity indeed!
Great stuff!!

The flying Carpet...the hug...all of it. Brilliant.

But yeah, I noticed also, we're behind by 5. Mine was a spur-of-the-moment thing, too...and I neglected to do the Index post (my bad)....
now, if BIAD can edit his to put in the 5 prior entries above his last, we'd be okay...
do you want me to write it up?
Is your edit time still available, or do we need masqua again?

Whoa! The floodgates seem to have suddenly broke loose!

In regards to pandora's Box and this line:




"Oh yes, my dear Charon... there'll be hell to pay" he muttered.



I'm thinking that they may not recall just WHO is the Devil here! Neno is not really a very nice guy, either, and knows a lot about "evil" but one thing above all others he knows about evil - when hell gets paid, product gets delivered!

Pandora: "I'll show you just what IS in my box, you heathen bastridge!"

Neno: "I don't wanna see yer box, lady. Matter of fact, you need to cover up what baubles yer already showin', afore they get fly-blown."

Pandora: "ARRRGH!"

BIAD: BOOM!

Neno: "Where's yer damned old box NOW?"

Pandora: "WAAAA!"



See, Pandora can't kill neno or BIAD, but they can't kill her, either. She might not be able to kill Margo, either, but she can disassemble her.

Neno and BIAD have nothing at all to prevent them from injuring the Deities, however, and the same principle works both ways. That was established when neno visited just a wee bit of hell's payment on Death to get free of being dead in the aftermath of the OK Corral..

Okay, here's what I'm seeing.
We were good up until post 8 on page 67, neno's "Hell on Heels"

the next one should be 9, which was BIAD's (woops, also says 8)

then was silo's, should be 10, "stay or go, going to town"

then we missed silo's Lost and Found, sh be 11

then Mr Jordan gets his family, BIAD, sh be 12 and 13

then mine:
writer = wildtimes
Page 67
Post on page 14 Reversal of Fortune
New NPC: no
New term: none
Pic or tune? nope
Brief outline: Adam, Skinny, Squibs and Sslar make it to the cave, but not before Fiona shows up and tries to steal the Caliburn. Ben and Dag are found with Gert and the Splitter. Adam gains possession of Gia's jewels, Sslar the sword, and Fiona is, well...no more Fiona.

Two more by neno, 15 and 16

Then another by silo, 17

END of page 67

Page 68, post 1, BIAD....

How about this:
everybody write their summaries here FIRST, and then we stick them in the index thread?

If you guys all write up your summaries for those we missed, I'll compile them and ask masqua to insert them all in the last accurate post of neno's which was hell on heels.....

sound good?

I don't think he can CHANGE the wrong numbers, but he can delete the posts altogether....so we have a bunch of empty posts. oh well.

or not.
thoughts?

Yup, if he can edit my "Hell on Heels" index to add the rest, he can change the numbers. Editing is editing.


This is what I've got - the page break seems to be different from what you have (mine stays on page 67, and hasn't yet rolled out to 68):

BIAD - "Best Served Cold" - 09

wildtimes - err, Silo - "Stay or Go" - 10

Silo - "Lost and Found" - 11

BIAD - "Mr Jordan gets a family" - 12 + 13

==========================================================

writer = wildtimes
Page 67
Post on page 14 Reversal of Fortune
New NPC: no
New term: none
Pic or tune? nope
Brief outline: Adam, Skinny, Squibs and Sslar make it to the cave, but not before Fiona shows up and tries to steal the Caliburn. Ben and Dag are found with Gert and the Splitter. Adam gains possession of Gia's jewels, Sslar the sword, and Fiona is, well...no more Fiona.

==========================================================

Writer = nenothtu

Page = 67

Post Number (on page) + title = 15 no title

New NPC = None

New Term = None.

Pic or tune included? No

Quick chapter outline = Nenothtu muses on the vagaries of the meanings of life and death, and how the meaning in one may affect the meaning in the other. Then he sees Pandora trapped under the log.

==========================================================

Writer = nenothtu

Page = 67

Post Number (on page) + title = 16 no title

New NPC = None

New Term = None.

Pic or tune included? No

Quick chapter outline = Nenothtu and Chumley free Pandora from her "trap", she tries to spring her real trap, much hilarity ensues.

=======================================================

Silo13 - "Three's a Charm" - 17

=======================================================

Writer = nenothtu

Page = 67

Post Number (on page) + title = 18 no title

New NPC = None

New Term = None.

Pic or tune included? No

Quick chapter outline = Margo takes umbrage with neno's merriment at the expense of "poor little old" Pandora. As it turns out, Margo is one of the few who survive trying to kick neno while he's down...

==================================================

BIAD - "To the rescue" - 19 + 20

REALLY! Wow, that seems really weird..... really weird. How can that be? When I do a "this post" - "copy link address" I see in the link the page number.....

Anyway, so.......what next?

What happens when you click on the last link in my post right above yours for post #20? the last part of what I get is "/pg67#pid13684378" for BIAD's post #20 0n page 67. Now he has post #1 on Page 68, "Out of sight, out of mind?".

Sorry, I'm distracted. Archer is on, a re-run of the episode with the cyborg Katya with the mechanical hoo-ha again. I'm so easily amused.

Katya (to Archer): "I'm sorry if I hurt you, but dahlink, Barry and I are the same - inside and out."

Barry: "Yeah, except her insides vibrate."

Archer: *Punches Barry in the face, only to discover that smacking steel with bare knuckles is not a real good idea.*


Anyhow, I reckon the next move is to get all the rest of the info for the posts that you and I haven't filled out, and have Masqua do some creative editing, or else just post it as one or several new mega-posts.

I think I see what happened - you missed posts 18, 9, and 20. on page 67, and went right to post 1 on page 68, while I missed seeing that post, but counted out the last 3 posts on page 67.

Great last posts


So what Tumbler is left? Mut I think?

Let's save Mut for Silo and Pip who're gonna need her.


Your earlier post here in the working thread sounded good. Get the hell outta dodge and onto another story!

Okay, I see...but ....but..there IS a post on page 68, by BIAD....
thread446881/pg68#pid13686155. "Out of sight, out of mind"
so it would be 21.

Sorry, my bad.....

here's silo's summary:

writer = silo13
Page = 67
Post on page: 17Three's a Charm
New NPC: no
New term: no
Pic or tune? no
Brief outline: When he hears Pandora scream from a distance, Carpet rides in to join neno-neno, and Chumley-neno . His horse stops too abruptly, and he flies off of it, knocking Pandora over. Neno is tickled. They leave Pandora.

so, we need BIAD's 19 and 20 on page 67, and his 1 on page 68...right?
BIAD, can you write them up here?
Then we can splice them all together and fwd to masqua to add to neno's "Hell on Heels"...

Mut, Akron AND Cecilia are at the cabin now... they're awaiting the
next bit!
Can someone tell me what happens with Adam, Squibs, Skinny and Sslar?

Cheers-Me-Dears.

Well, they are with Dag and Ben in the cave, and Gert is backed into a corner; the Splitter has been relieved of the jewels, and they have the Cailburn.

So....shall they just march out now? They can, if we just wanna get out of here.....I thought BIAD and neno would want to confront Pandora, and Gert also, for their lying to Dag and Adam about being Gert (The Lady of the Lake's) kids...
I was sorta thinkin' there was gonna be a deity-fight in the Cave, but I guess we've dropped that plan?

What happened to their grand scheme of wanting to join reality? Did we lose interest?
And here I have the Caliburn back, which was a key prop, I thought....
what do you WANT them to do?

Thanks WT, it would be better if they came out and the sword was given to Neno.
The sword is the real key... that's what Death and the rest are after to 'come-through'

Let's gettem' off this future -world and I'm sure the gang of 'unrealists' will follow.

Mut could rendevous with Silo and pick her up... I guess Silo could write that one up?

The tale that the deity with the skull and magic-stick told Tibbs about the far-end of
the Universe and the four wolves, The Tree Of Knowledge and the guy from the end of Time awaits!

Okay, but I just strained my brain to get the above post ready....I have u2u it to masqua, I hope he can insert it in neno's Hell on Heels post in the Index, and then delete the following ones.....
thanks, you guys, for making your summaries.

Not sure why or if silo has opted out of it...?

Should we give it up?

I have to walk down to the bank to correct a problem, and after that I'm not sure if I'll have recharged enough to post here...
if you guys have an idea for neno arriving at the cabin and Adam et al emerging from the cave, let me know. We can make it simple, or we can make it dramatic.
Either way.

Yeah, that would work. I'll merge them all into a single post here, and when we're ready we can have Masqua just quote, copy, and paste it into that post. That keeps him from having to track and merge everything, and he can devote more time to moderator thingies and curing folks' ills.

Someone is going to have to drive or program coordinates into Mut and send her back for Silo. That will actually kill two birds with one stone - give Silo a way out if she wants it, and give her communication ability if she doesn't want out.
