Default July 16



Welcome to Day 31, the other last day of Cliffhanger Week. We have two items today, one big and one HUGE.
    [*]First up is the conclusion of Five-Minute "The Sacrifice of Angels," by me. This, at last, wraps up our series of DS9 cliffhangers. Originally I said we'd have one a day, but I didn't realize how long CW was going to be -- nonetheless, we had a hang of a lot of them.[*]And now the big surprise. Unbeknownst even to me, Kira decided to make another comic fiver, this time for one of 5MV's most popular and oft-referenced fivers to date: my "The Best of Both Worlds." Kira has done a masterful job bringing it to life, and I'm deeply flattered. The Part I pages are now up; Part II will be provided tomorrow.[/list]

    Oh, did I say tomorrow? I guess that means today isn't the real last day of CW either, eh? Be here tomorrow for Day 32!

Sadly for Damar what she was really going to say was "I love you too, Damar." If only he'd known....

Nice conclusion, Zeke.

On the comic: Nicely done, Kira! Some great 'cap choices to fit the dialogue, like Riker's expression for the "Oh. Well, that's a bummer." line on Page 9. 'Sides, it was fun just going through that fiver again. (Btw, Zeke, I can't remember whether anyone asked at the time, but was the thing about the moth in the Borg footprint a reference, either to "A Sound of Thunder" or to Godzilla? Just wondered.)


Good stuff.

Yep, that's an "A Sound of Thunder" reference -- I'm a huge Ray Bradbury fan. Good catch.

I must say that TBOBW fiver seems better suited to comic form than the others we've seen so far. Or maybe that's just Kira's mad skills at work.

Most excellent work, all round.

You know, reading that fiver has led me to wonder if Zeke is perhaps a wormhole alien himself...

July 17


I've decided Day 32 will be tomorrow, not today. There are two reasons for this: one, our hitcounts tend to be lower on weekends, and two, 32 really IS the last day of Cliffhanger Week and I can use another day to make it as good as possible. See you then.

Great story, The Butterfly Effect notwithstanding.

I am now of the firm belief that we need more comic fivers.

I've been just staring at the Lalo image and laughing at it for the past 5 minutes.

Somehow it's even more hysterical with pictures...

Non-linear concepts of time and all that. :P

Yes, despite Ashton whoselastnameIcan'tspell's potential to be a lightweight or an actor who can't make the jump to the big screen, The Butterfly Effect turned out to be a decent little lite-scifi kind of film. The premise was interesting and was decently executed. The acting was fine, and I was satisfied with the ending. That's a lot more than I can say about some of the big blockbuster type SFF movies I've seen over the last few years (Phantom Menace, AOTC, Fantastic 4...)

July 18


On further reflection, I've decided it's not unreasonable to give myself just a couple more days with the CW conclusion, as I really need the extra time. Day 32 will be on Wednesday. However, to allay any concerns in advance, here's the deal: if I'm not done by Wednesday, I'll publish whatever I've got, and that'll be it. One way or the other, Cliffhanger Week ends on the 20th, and we all go back to our lives.


Incidentally, for those who are wondering what's in store after this event, we have several subsite events in the works, and at least one should take place before August. I'm also going to start on Enterprise's fourth season and some other stuff that's fallen by the wayside in all the CW fuss -- including the long-awaited return of the eTrektion.
