We have ten score posts on the blog now, three quarters of which are maddeningly meaningless. The other forty-nine are written by Elphaba and Met. I think that now is a time for celebration. I have delayed the Lament for a week to bring you the exciting news.
To properly ring in our victory, I invited an illustrator. He will be illustrating the Apocalypse, and perhaps other things as they strike his fancy. By illustrating, of course, I mean sprites, as he somehow has less drawing ability than I do, a feat in itself. The second reward is my new blog, which will function much like bonus commentary on a DVD, but without having to watch the entire video again.
A little over a year ago, Met posted 100, a post that celebrated not 100 published posts, but 100 total, drafts included. We currently have 266 posts including those that are drafts and those that are scheduled. What have we achieved in that time? We gained Elphaba, an author with an unfortunate penchant for writing Fanfiction. GLaDOS's Lament was published. Tuesday's little Tale began, and mystery ensued. Songs appeared every week, for a time, though they have encountered a hiatus that can only lengthen as Met flees from the government. Thursday has become known for producing Thoughts, which are generally beautifully macabre. Friday now Features our newest author, who tries to resist the madness with actual meaning. God has begun to dream on Saturdays, and will do so until somewhere around the Chinese New Year. The Winged have fallen, and lament it. I have found my new work, which I have no intention of ending, and will last for as long as I can write about it.
What will the next 100 bring?
Is it cheating to end Song of the Day like this?
