Like Mike wrote:I just want to verify/falsify a rumor I have heard. Is the Avalon forum, in fact, at war with the Sinfest forum? And Hi.

I don't think it's a war. They're more like pirates.

*looks around*

Just for the record, most "modern" sinfesters dont wish ill luck, as WisTex said, some of us are just pirates looking to have fun with other boards. like here.

Hi. I figured that this thread seemed semi-active it would be the best place to post this. I was looking around, browsing archives and forums, trying to overcome my insomnia when I ran across Avalon.

It just feels weird, experiencing for the first time what others have known of and talked about for years. It means there's no one left to talk to, to share the experience with. It's like a movie that you missed out on, then rent a year later. Enjoyable, but not quite the same as having gone to the theatre with your friends.

It also makes me think of mortality. How many people who were die-hard fans of this staory have forgotten? How many people will never know that it existed? There's a strong philosophical point there that my sleep-needy brain just can't work out right now.

To Mr. Phillips: A hearty thank you for bringing joy to people's lives. Whether you are remembered or not, there will always be that time when you held sway over people's emotions, and that is sacred.

To all: Never forget those things you hold dear to you. Ingrain them into your memory. If someone tells you to move on, to forget, do me a favor and punch them in the face.

I don't know how much sense I made just now, but its difficult to put some thoughts into words.






For those who weave the stories shall hold power over the heartstrings of their fellow man.

Avalon was a little too excellent to fade from people's hearts so easily.

Yeah, there's not many fandoms as stubborn as Avalon's. The comic's been gone for... well, a long time, and people are still here and hanging on.

*nods*

I can't remember if I ever posted here, but I always loved the webcomic. Sometimes, I still hope that Josh will return and draw the ending...

*has just finished rereading all of the archives, and wanted to look into the forum as well*

You are not the only one paddling down that river... ;)

For as long as Josh exists, hope will remain. Personally, I'd like to see him finish it, even if it happens 20 years from now.
And then there's always Willis, who may one day be bored and decide to finish Avalon instead of Josh. ;)

I think he already has, and is just waiting for me to die before publishing it. Y'know, out of respect. ;-)

The friendships and other associations that formed through the forum and live gatherings are also part of Josh's legacy.

Thank you, Josh.
If it hadn't been for your web comic, I probably would've just been Usa-chan and Ucchan's hallucination.

True. Even years later, the pirates still come around to see if there is anything left to pillage... or maybe just to remember about pillages past.
