Can someone explain this thread to me?
Time was a big thing. It has a big effect on us. The end.
Even when Time was still running people were making pictures, songs, etc. based on Time.
Fanart, that's how those things are called outside, right?
When Time ended. there was no reason to stop doing this.
For some reason at that time this thread has also become its own thing.
So if we ran out of Time we can make some new Time, right?
Fan fiction is a thing that exists in this world.
So something both expected and unexpected started happening:
Some very short stories, in the same format as Time (same frame size, similar drawing style, new frames appearing every some time) were made: Prickly
M and Lucky
Later, someone (Waveney) did a more serious attempt: Beany
is an a little longer story in two parts about some events with these beanied guys from Time.
And then came t1i
. A story with over 1000 frames, drawn in at a level almost like Randall's, telling some story of the Characters' adventures after the events of Time. This was a great thing. It was done some well that some thought for some time that it could be done by Randall himself. (The author of t1i is very mysterious).
And then we had another thing, t-1
, a story about the events before Time, with a second story
hidden steganographically inside the frames. (the second story was no longer in the style of time, it was 3d-generated and colorful).
And we had the Zanclean Zodiac
. A starry thing which I don't know how to explain.
All these are in the same format as Time, same frame size, similar style, the same world, same characters.
But what if we tried something else.BFTF
is a thing that didn't even try to be a Time After Time (that's how those things are called). different size, different style, different world. It's a story about some guys in a secret base on the moon finding out about Time and this thread.
Yeah, this kind of thing...
And the thing you are seeing now (BSTA
) is even further away from the idea. The format is similar to MSPA, the style similar to BFTF, and the story... so far no direct relatedness to Time could be noticed. there is some relatedness to BFTF which is somehow related to this thread (and Time). But it's still going on so who knows?
So it looks like a story (Time) created a space which attracted people who like doing stories. And they did.
To my big surprise, I did.
