    Go ahead and go nuts in here.

    Currently I am engaged in the task of mirroring BtSDLb--moving every post from the forums to Tumblr. (I'm moving them from the forums rather than the mirror because, I've noticed, the mirror still messes up the HTML and leaves out quotes and pages here and there. At least from now on the goofs will be my own.) After that I'll be getting back to updates. YAY!

    My wrists are still feeling vaguely like crap. I can type fine but it'd impact art. Plus the art takes a REALLY FREAKING LONG TIME. So, until I decide to take art duties back, I've selected a guest artist who has the benefits of (1) drawing quality doodles very quickly, and (2) being an awesome person. Since many of the pictures can be done with sprites, those I'll likely be doing myself; but for more expressive works, she'll be doing the lineart. (Lineart because I still like to color omfg it's like having a coloring book.) I'll put a link to her and some of her work after I find out what she's comfortable having shown off to the BtSDLb public.

    For now, though, rejoice! Updates are gonna resume sometime sorta soon.
    This is now officially a discussion/party thread. Links to new updates will probably still be posted here and such, but this ISN'T going to be the update thread anymore.

    Go wild.

    Shout.

    Make merry.

    It'll still be a bit before updates resume--I have to finish mirroring every single update into the new Tumblr, which will take a few days at least--but until then chatter and nonsense can begin again in here.

    Re: Be the Sea Dweller Lowblood 6: We're migrating to Tumblr.

    Just so we're clear, the main problem making it harder to read an adventure on tumblr (or really, anywhere other than these forums) is that here, I have a simple list of subscriptions and it's really easy to tell when one of them has a new post, at least, and I can check all of the posts. There, I have to add yet another favorite to my MSPA folder, which is already clogged with at least 20 adventures I mean to catch up on and then subscribe to later on, and then there's no way of knowing if there's an update or not without wading through said pile of adventures and going off to another website. The same sort of problem is also a part of the reason I disliked forbidding discussion in the only thread I can easily access from here.

    That said, I generally enjoy this adventure a lot, I fully respect your decision as this is your work and you can put it where you want, how you want, and I will probably continue reading..whenever I think to check it. Sorry about adopting a sort of..I don't know, passive-aggressive whiny tone earlier? If that's what it came off as.
    Got Portal 2? Come check out my maps, please!
    I shall never comprehend how 6 normal-sized lines of text is "too long".
    Active Adventures (awaiting suggestions):
    A Frigid Foray-a brief tale in the far north of a magic-filled world | PersonS-like Persona, but not | An Aranor Adventure-high fantasy and adventure | Full Immersion-what if the world really did depend on your ability to play an RPG? | Odd One Out-3 best friends, a kidnapped girl, an evil king, and elves | Beasts-a tale of survival | The Longest Flashback-fantasy noir, or something like that | GUIH-raising a dragon is harder than it sounds. | MageBound-Fantasy+"Stuck" | Creation-wherein the readers are the mind of a universe's omnipotent god
    | The College of Magic-pretty much what it says on the tin | YOUR NAME IS JOHN EGBERT - a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon adventure with art by people other than me

    A bit, yeah. All's forgiven.

    You could also try using the RSS feed:

    http://btsdlb.tumblr.com/rss

    A disclaimer: I have no idea how RSS works or what it does. But I've been lead to believe it gives you alerts for things like updates.

    You could also just subscribe here and check to see when people are flailing over a new update.

    ON A DIFFERENT NOTE, until I get caught up on mirroring this onto Tumblr, I still feel like I wanna do something updatey. I'll just put it here like a normal update in the meantime. However, I don't want to do anything directly related to the plot at hand until I'm finished mirroring.

    So, readers. Input suggestions. You know the drill.

    Find the end of what? If you mean the tumblr, it hasn't been mirrored entirely yet. I've only got the first few pages made.

    I didn't think I would like the Tumblr move, but just looking at the page for it... I really like the layout, and I think this will be cool!

    Your signature still links to the old thread. Do you plan to keep it that way?

    The most immediate benefit to the other thread is most certainly this.

    I think this would suffice more as a suggestion box rather than a discussion thread.

    Yes this place would suffice as a suggestion box.

    So Sollux wants to get in your pants, right? Well why not just take them off? You still have your robo-legs, correct?

    Really, with so many plot threads, there isn't much non-plot based to segue into. Unless ...

    Re: Be the Sea Dweller Lowblood 6: We're migrating to Tumblr.

    I suggest keeping the increasingly elaborate system of naming the thread-segments on tumblr, and titling the current/next part "Be The Sea Dweller Lowblood 6: My Heart, Spade, Diamond and Club Will Go On."
