Great story, Contra (I'm glad i didnt get you to spoil it on Skype part of the fun of this stuff is waiting for every presentation to drop)

Those were some amazing presentations all around (tbf this is the first year i HAVE seen them but theyre still p good), and I found all the tributes to Walkazo genuinely touching

Congrats, all involved!

Some background might be required for my presentation, especially for people who aren't familiar with my past work:
  • The bit about bandages isn't for show. It's a heavy-handed metaphor, but it's essentially how my motivation to work and function since Walkazo's passing has been. Seeing without seeing. On some days, living without living.
  • The bit about previous universes implies that this story takes place in a rebooted continuity- of both the various iterations of 132 and our actual, real world.
  • Walkazo isn't dead in this story's setting because this place lives in my- and now our- heads. Where the feelings and memories you have for and of a person never, ever go away.
  • The box contained letters and memorabillia from previous resets. It's safe to assume that every tribute that was made to Walkazo post-death was included here. Probably should've brought a bigger box...
  • It's a very personal story. I haven't written fiction since Walkazo died. Anton convinced me to write the presentation, and with her being the winner of course all I could do was find a way to put my feelings into words. Stooben and Anton, as the runner-ups, are also close friends who contributed well to the setting.

U6 presentation.

That's a nicely made comic and I enjoyed reading it.

One thing though: Regarding the "Is it allowed to say Edo's name in this comic" bit: I could have sworn I gave you permission to use me in your comic. Like, as far as I remember, you asked me per PM.

Lets finally get to comment on this shall we?



Dippy's opening was absolutely amazing, thank you.
The other tributes have also been great.

Great presentations also.

Best kind of joke.

remember when I got second in user design
No.

If it isn't that, then maybe it is Shroom Mafia III, the game hosted by Stooben Rooben, which lasted forever because people just would. not. die?

Now to comment on the other three categories.
