Cthulhu/Metaguard Information Hub Thingy

Postby Endless Sea on Fri Dec 14, 2012 1:17 am

Righto, so earlier in the chat today, after the Cthulhu panic was starting to die down, Eli and I came up with the idea to pool all our knowledge of the Metaguards and ol' squid head into a single Google Document; that way, anyone who wants to write a fic in order to help with containment has all the information he or she needs to do so, and anyone who has something to add to the info already gathered can make an edit firsthand (that means you, everyone who created a Metaguard! Give us all the inside info on your creations you can spare!). The document isn't up yet, as I have no idea how to make one, but it will be soon, so everyone, compile that info and get ready to send it in!

(On a side note, here is an online copy of Cthulhu's debut story. The original link isn't too far down in the topic, but I'm including it here for convenience's sake.)

So, apparently I'm the sanest madman this side of the international date line. Seems legit.

I don't really see the point. I left the fic links in the Wall Emergency OP (you MUST read them before writing), and everything else can be twisted any way you want. As I said, Word Of God doesn't matter here.

I'm saying that the OP is the central location. Everything else can be discussed in the Wall Emergency thread. Don't see the point of this one. :|

We can also use the thread to share information about Cthulhu perhaps, to assist those who aren't as versed in his mythos.
Not a distress call. Honest.

I looked this up anyway since I've never read it, so I'll link it here for those who also might want to read it before writing their fics:

The Call of Cthulhu.

Well, I just recorded and sent in my Joni Mitchell adaptation to turn him back. I DO plan on trying a more "traditional" fic later, but I can't do that until after my exams, so... *shrug*. If anyone wants to lighten the mood a little by listening me warble about Cthulhu to the tune of Carey, I'm dumping it here, just cause.

:roll:
Why are we even arguing about a dead fictional dude and hypothetical ninjas?

Cthulhu panic?? *facepalm* This is what happens when I take finals in the middle of an international crisis. I miss all the good stuff!
The voices in my head tell me that we saved the world. However, they also told me that George Clooney's face is on the dollar bill, so... meh. The voices are more fun, anyway.

Relax, Issy, everyone knows finals are way more important than the end of the world... in the eyes of the government, anyway.

They sometimes say, "the place where I am right now was circled on a map for me"... Unfortunately, I kind of suck at orienteering.

I think I'll add a link in the first post to the short story so we'll see it right when we click on the topic link. (Been way too long since I read that thing, I barely remember any of it...)
