    My vote is for YES of the Republican Party:D BTW, the "Posted Part x" sounds like a good idea.

    Business first:

    1: Go for next story thread and discussion thread being linked to your sig. That's a great way of anchoring. And if discipline is lost and it doesnt work ... well so be it.

    I like the rambling juxtaposition of thread and comments .... not to mention the way that this story thread has had it's internal Off Topic operating. For me, this thread has been a special home from home, within that home on the web called PuF.

    The feeling of being surrounded by the job in hand [your story] and related work[comments, suggestions, time and motion] gives a special flavour and context to the more personal elements.

    Neo .. you and your GF as part of the world in which you were getting the story together. Phoenix and the computer not working, me and making various hints and mentions of that song - part of my way of being in this thread for the last few weeks included sidelong references to it .... er, didn't I take the liberty of doing the first posting of my lyrics here?!!!:D!! ... I'd've never done a thread, I wanted you guys to see it but I didn't want to air it all over the place that early in the production. [shout]AND I FELT SAFE HERE[/shout]. Most recently, Laffnboy and his intense mission to get the guitar that he actually wanted.

    And I also entirely agree with the point about needing to make it accessible to new readers. That's why I'm fully supporting the idea of the separate discussion thread. With links in your sig [BTW, if you want to modify your sig image or to add another one, then just upload as attatchment and I'll do my bit]


    2: PuF Classic?
    I vote YES





    And away from business ... well I have a few immediate impressions:

    Neo, you have kept going with determination and doggedness to create not one story, and not one story plus a small extra story, but to complete two well-developed and full size works. Inexorably developing in style, creativity, characterisation, lyricism and plot.

    Your appreciation for the support that your loyal readers have given is well recieved.
    And in my opinion that loyalty has been well earned by you as you have consistently applied your talent, your skills, your spirit.

    [At the moment I feel like we are at a dinner in honor of your acheivements and that this is the bit where we have had the starters and the main course. We just about managed the pudding and though the cheese and biscuits are on the table, we're too bloated to touch them, but some fine drink is at our elbow and we sip as we stand up and make speeches - as I write, I'm putting away a glass of spanish brandy]

    And as you begin to draw this thread to a close then I say you have been have been a kind, generous and hospitable host to all who have entered. I value that.
    And as you usher us to the door so that you can turn out the lights and lock up, then at this moment when we look back at the journey so far travelled. I am humbled.

    And I thank you form the bottom of my heart.

    If you read this thread it is like a bit of PuF history, along with the story you have got so many other things going on with people at the same time.

    But it has to go to classics now :)

    MORETY??? PLEEEEASE MOVE IT THERE! :)

    Voting YES here to move it to the PuF Classics!

    No really this thread is special!

    And I think the idea of two threads is the best, you're right: newcomers in da club:)D) will have it hard to find the parts.
    The best way is to have links to both threads in your sig, so we are all with you Neo!

    Big thank you to you Neo for these great stories and to all the others for supporting him...

    Just one more thing:
    Neo, you should lock the next story thread. This will keep people from posting in it. When you want to add a part just unlock it add your part then lock it again! ;)

    tnx Mohamz for your support :D
    I sure hope the mods consider even moving it to the classics ..
    well we'll see.. Anyway.. it's been one hell of a ride :D

    !

    See, Technoarcher pmed me and he has this really interesting idea: (why didn't I think of that? :D)

    Anyway, I had an idea that would help people with your story thread quite a bit. What if you simply posted the story in another color? As long as people keep their comments in the form of white text for the most part, it should be okay. Also, it'll make it easier for latecomers to pick out the story from the thread.

    See? Now, I think that might work as well?
    I don't know.. I'll think about it..

    Either Technoarcher's idea (which could really work out well)
    Or the two threads.

    Ok, I guess this is it.
    I'll post both stories as attachment in zips later today.

    So.. :-I

    Well said Zenda :) I like it.
    I think I have to agree on what phoenix said about you..
    You're a big support to all us "writer-types" on Puf :D

    Hm...
    Never had any support like this on another forum...
    Puf rocks I guess. :)

    /me slaps own forehead with heel of hand

    Of course ... different coloured text. This was the convention that got adopted in Phoenix's thread [I'm not sure but I think it could have been Gabriel aka G who put this one forward back there then]. I remember liking it at the time and since then have often gone into green text when I have gone slightly to one side of whatever topic I'm contributing to.

    IMO it'd certainly retain unity of culture in the thread without confusing newcomers


    And thanks for your kind words ...

    I agree, this is a special community ...

    We are very fortunate:)

    Wohoo! I got the first copies of them! Now I'll actually be able to read them all from start to finish. This is quite a feat you've accomplished, NeoNite.

    BTW, I'll be taking some advice from Mohamz later today and setting up a story thread of my own in OT. Hey, it'll really keep my creative juices flowing and it'll give me a reason to start frequenting OT. Mohamz and Tobler1 said good things about the first three chapters, so I'm going to go for it. I've been working on an organization scheme to help me out.

    My story is going to be good, but I'm going to have to work hard for it to measure up to this!

    Yeah, but I've been working with this idea for quite a while prior to this, and seeing all this hard work of yours pan out convinces me that I should go for it. (I suffer from low self-esteem at times, so go easy on me. :eek: )

    No need to worry, it was a really good opening, you should be proud. I think from that you should be able to build up a really good story thread.

    And Neo is right, there are plenty of people out there to support you, so keep goin with it.

    (never feel that you have to rush it tho :))

    good luck ;)

    This is it. The penultamate post before Neo locks this for good, hopefully to be moved to the classics forums with a little persistance from me...

    This thread has been a little part of PuF history, a great story, coupled along with some great people around it.

    Neo:

    Always eager to carry on the story, never leaving us waiting and yet still able to keep the brilliant twists and turns of each chapter going. He invented some truely great charactersm like (the very subtle ;)) Neoknight and of course George the Skarjj, a character that has certainly chamges the way I see those freaky unreal lizard things : )
    Hissin' Visse was my favourate though, a brutal and one sided character to begin with, ending up by caring for a pet (even if she did skin the Nali :rolleyes: ) And of course, who can forget the evisceration knife, a no.1 Christmas best seller to come I think :D

    Thx for letting us experience the madness that is you mind Neo, I know we all enjoyed it, even if we will all be in psychiatric care for months to come :)


    Zenda:

    Although the forum is becoming a bit of a 'praise Zenda' sort of place right now, he needs to be mentioned again. He has offered kind and intelligent comments all throughout this thread and others too, gaining a huge amount of respect from those who read his words :) As Neo said to me just now - "he's the type of guy a writer can dream of I guess :D" and I agree with that completely.
    I don;t know if Zenda understands how much help he has been, but hopefully by now I am starting to drum it into his head.


    Lafnboy and Mohamz:

    It's been great having you two in here as well, as im sure Neo will agree, you added to this thread loads, and created a sort of community in a community feel. I hope to see you about the other story threads in future, they wouldn't be the same without ya :D


    Course there were loads of others who went into making this a CLASSIC THREAD (small hint to certain moderators :)) like Synastren, jolt, pineconeboy etc...too many to mention all, but they all made this a great thread.


    You've been a great thread Necris story, but it's time to say au revoir :)

    Cya :)

    The end

    So, that's it...
    The end of a huge storythread.

    First I would like to thank all of you (again yes I know :)..)
    The loyal fanbase, everyone who has had a good time reading through these 2 Necris stories..

    What can I say? I never expected it to turn into something this big.
    I.. still don't know what to say :)

    This has been a fantastic experience, a wild ride :D

    And I can guarantee all of you, the next story thread will blow you away :)

    See you then..
    Better be there!

    The end.
