I can't not like and quote a post with that image.
ANARCHY IN THE OSOL!
*sprays RC with a fire hose*
Oh, now we see the violence inherent in the system! HELP HELP, I'M BEING OPPRESSED!
One Sentence or Less this time, The Entire Lit Forum!
Strange, stranger, IN-JOKES ABOUND!
I sincerely hope you enjoyed your brief moment of lawlessness, because I assure you, that is about to change. While you may think you enjoy aimlessly scurrying around like the rats you so vividly resemble, I know that you crave order. That you need a kind, gentle and most important of all, forgiving guiding hand, one that will pick you up when you so frequently stumble and set you back on the path of righteousness.
Which, y'know, is my way of thanking Coop for imparting the great responsibility of leading this pack of rabid dogs, and for assuring the more well mannered of you that I mean to make this transition of power as painless as possible. I know many of you are frightened and confused, but don't worry. Live well, give your offerings and say your prayers facing my direction thrice a day, and you'll be fine.
In considering how I would begin my rule, I found I had two options. My first thought was that I could treat my new domain with the level of seriousness that it deserves. I could continue Coop's tradition and make a conscious effort to promote quality of entries by carefully choosing my subjects. I could take the high road, and seek not to cement my own personal rule, but to establish that I would approach my new responsibilities impersonally, that I'm more interested in what's truly best for One Sentence of Less than in leaving my own mark.
Then I thought better of it.
We all knew this was coming. For those that felt I would at least have the dignity to wait awhile, well, you don't know me very well. Patience is for the weak.
I regret nothing. Except maybe that I don't get to submit an entry.
Finally, big round of applause for
@CooperTFN, guys. He made all of this possible. He did this to you. And I mean to make him regret it.
Star Wars: The Glove of Darth Vader: Space whales, fashion statements from the deceased, and a constant nagging thought that this whole thing is just all wrong.
Introducing the most annoying protagonist since Mary Sue herself!
-50 points from Gryffindor.
Ken is introduced in the second book. Have you learned nothing? I haven't been seeing you around class lately, I suggest you fix that.
Though you could save face by saying you're talking about Trioculus...
Of course, I must make amends.
Step aside, you overgrown Smurf! The TRUE Heir to the Empire has come forth!
The only TRUE sequel to the Original Trilogy that will ever exist, because DARK GREETINGS.
C-3PO gets painted green, Mofferences are introduced, and we get the beard-iest naval captain since Ahab.
Soon to be known as "Episode VII: The Novelization".
From the second death star whose demise opened a wormhole for the titular glove, to the undersea slaughterhouse where it winds up, to the book's characterization, sense of logic and overall quality, the most appropriate descriptive phrase is to be found in the traditional cry of the Whaladon hunter - "she blows!"
A book with a serious story behind it but presented in a way that makes it kidish.
The rebels learn that the glove of Darth Vader was transported from the remains of the second Death Star to Dac; many whaladons died to bring them this information.
Just pointing out that so far, my YouTube video is winning.
Technically I'm winning. But don't tell no one
The "Glove of Darth Vader" is the physical manifestation of about 7,000 punchlines on TFN boards.
The Glove of Darth Vader: save the whales from a three-eyed Imperial imposter who believes in a dead man's magical glove!
To be fair, Mary Sue herself was actually a parody. This...I pray to Waru daily that this is, in fact, a parody. Not sure he listens.
Grand Admiral Takel's last stand.
So I'm very amused that currently a post by the old thread ruler and the introduction post between the two are competing for your love and affection. It's the eternal struggle between old and new incarnate.
The twist is that neither of us can win. SO VOTE. For the record, I mean to try giving these things three days each, but I might find that I prefer Coop's two day system. Guess we'll just have to see if anyone still cares about this thing by the third day.
