Congratulations to SuperFolder kidloki108 for solving the puzzle on 10.15.18 at 1:25 AM, EST.
The code reads:
This sequel to Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus is set at McQuarrie High School, and shows what happened to Dwight, Tommy, and the others during their high school years with the absence of Origami Yoda.
This story will be called (as of now), Closed, This Case Is.
It will be written by Jawa, with some help from the EU Council. It is a direct sequel to Emperor Pickletine and will be Stand-Alone from the rest of the EU.
The release date is set to be around late 2018 or early 2019.
Now, more answers, AND the reward for solving the puzzles.
Congratulations is also in order to SuperFolder Mega3 for deciphering both original codes.
Also, I will not be completing the Time Travel Special (for a while). The reason the comment was there however, has to do with another unrelated story coming soon. (Not written by me.)
And finally, your reward.
The unfinished script and outline for Origami Yoda: The Series: Finale: The School Awakens. Whew, what a title. The link below will take you to the page, but you can also access it from OY Legends.
Once again, congratulations to all those who participated.
-Jawa and the EU Council
Howdy! So, yeah, my original LEGO post didn’t go over quite so well because it didn’t have anything to do with Origami Yoda. Well, I’ve fixed it so my LEGO obsession and my Origami Yoda love can combine, and I made a digital minifigure series. Booyah.
Included in said series are, from top down and left to right, The Brat with Skateboard, Mr. Good Clean Fun with Soapy puppet, Quavondo with a Bag of Cheetos, Mike with Baseball Bat, Mr. Howell with Jabba the Puppett, Murky with School Photo, Ms. Rabbski with Princess Labelmaker, Rhondella with Godzilla Toy, Amy with Art2-D2 and Diary, Kellen with Pencil and Recording Thingy, Sara with Han Foldo and the Fortune Wookiee, Tommy with Case File, Dwight with Origami Yoda, Harvey with Darth Paper and Emperor Pickletine, Lance, and Professor Funtime with Gizmo! Phew, that was a mouthful.
These were a lot of fun to make, so who knows, I might make some more down the line. Some based on EU characters, perhaps?
Tell me who your favorites are and what you think of them as a whole!
Hey fellas, BatFold is out. Be sure to check it out here! It’s pretty long… 13,000 words. Hope you guys enjoy!
Also, use this chat to talk about it, or be sure to comment on the page itself! Peace out guys!
The continued adventures of Clark Largent and Iron Fold are now available for your viewing pleasure! But it’s not entirely as you’d expect, and the line between hero and villain is not clearly seen at times. Read the story here: The Imperfect Iron Fold
As always, when you’re done comment what you thought here or on the story itself. And above all, enjoy the beginning of the Marvel Origami Universe: Fold 2!
Hey guys, I’m pretty new to this whole new WordPress layout, so please give me a minute to like, figure this out and stuff! (Back in my day, it was all gray and blocky!)
So, I know most users in here are sitting, staring at the top right-hand corner next to the “Origami Yoda: the expanded universe” and wondering “What? What’s the DC origami universe?”
Well, fellow reader, I am proud to announce it: Welcome to the DCOU.
It’s self-explanatory. In a similar manner to the Marvel origami Universe, the DCOU is a set of stories set in the same universe as Tommy’s, Dwight’s, Clark’s, Dove’s, Jacob’s, and every other character in the OY novels, the OYEU and the MOU.
Here’s the current plan, that I, Peyton/OrigamiLuke100, the spearhead of this new line came up with:
- Each story in the DCOU will release on a similar schedule as the MOU, however, the DCOU stories release after each Fold of the MOU occur. You know that little down period after Fold One, where we all sat in the MOU discussion board and asked “When’s the next story coming out?” and “Is the OYEU dead?” Yeah, not anymore. Now, there will be a flow of more stories for you to read (and write!) A little bit before Fold 2 begins with the Imperfect Iron Fold, the first story, Batfold: Rebirth, will kick off the DCOU. We will wait until after Fold 2 is finished (Or nearing completion) to continue.
- A simple timeline would be like this: Batfold – Fold 2 kicks off – Fold 2 wraps up – DCOU Fold 1 continues – DCOU Fold 1 wrap up – Fold 3 kicks up
Now, I’m sure you’re wondering what’s so different about the DCOU?
Well, to start, there’s DC characters rather than Marvel Characters, so, there’s Batman, Superman, that kind of stuff.
Next, there’s a “darker” theme to most* stories. We have a few lighter tone stories as well.
Also, there are a few different schools, all of which have origami finger puppets. I’m not going to tell you which school has what, but, I’m going to let you theorize to your heart’s content!
- Kane – A public school where bullying is common.
- Shuster – A boarding school with a great band team and award-winning newsletter.
- Carter -An all Female High School private high school.
- Nodel – A school for 6-12 graders. Because they want to be different, the school is split into 7 different Hogwart like houses: The Red House, the Green House, the Orange House, the Yellow House, the Blue House, the Indigo House, and the Purple House. People are selected into the house by doing a 100 problem quiz that involves personality questions and situations.
- Lampert – This is a high school for athletes.
Yeah, they are pretty easy to figure out.
So, we have roughly 3-4 stories figured out. We have one completed. So, you know what that means!
- Everyone can suggest a character name to be used in the story. We aren’t talking about minor roles, such as a lunch lady or something. I’m talking about major characters that could appear in multiple stories. Villains, heroes, anyone!
- We NEED writers! We have a few for some stories, but, if you send an email to DC.firstname.lastname@example.org asking for a story, we will most likely have one. You email us, me or another mod will get back in touch with you, and we will go from there. It’s first dibs, though. If someone gets Pleat Arrow before you and wanted Pleat Arrow badly, I’m sorry.
- We also need folders and illustrators! If you are interested in folding for covers, or even drawing images, we are so down for that. Once again, just email us at DC.email@example.com, and we will get in touch with you.
Well guys, that’s it. Thank you all for reading this! Peace!
Hey everyone, Jawa here. Now that the poll is over, I thought I would go ahead and post this. The Ultimate Guide to the classification of all OYEU, MOU, DCOU, and BTFolds stories.
I haven’t talked with the Council yet, but I’m pretty sure this system will become active when the first story in Fold 2 is released. I think this is a pretty straightforward and easy to follow plan, and I hope you guys think the same.
If you have any questions, I’ll try to answer them ASAP.

The OY EU Council has brought up a major decision in the future of the OY EU and MOU. The votes on the decision have been pretty divided. Since the community is such a big part of the OYEU, we wanted to get some of your input on the choice.
While this poll isn’t final, it’s important in making the decision.
Here are the two sides to the decision:
The first perspective is the one that brought the issue up. This side of the OY EU Council wants to make an entirely separate website for the MOU and DCOU. While the DCOU is going to happen with or without the new website, this website would provide a new platform in which the epic stories can be written. The current OY EU website would likely finish the Bounty Hunter Saga and then be archived. This side has a definite vote from EvilJawa.
The other perspective wants to keep the same OY EU website, but have it store the OY EU, MOU, and DCOU in one place. The site would get some updates to adjust and work with the new universes. Ultimately, it would become one website for all three epic storylines. This would help us work with what we have but also add some new stuff to the same website. This side has definite votes from JC and SFCamster.
Noah, OirgamiLuke100, and CJ have been conflicted in their votes. We put the matter to a vote twice, and got a different result each time.
Without further ado, here is the poll! What do you think the Council should do?
POLL IS NOW CLOSED.
Policy Update — DON’T BE A HARVEY! (Or, um, I guess since Harvey’s a good guy now… don’t be a Jude?)
Hey, everybody! It’s JC!
Look, I’ve been seeing some comments around the website that are really uncool. Lots of unnecessary drama, rudeness, and overall disrespect for the EU council. They know what they’re doing (most of the time), and I just don’t like when people are rude to my friends, so please treat them the way you would want to be treated. We read over your stooktacular suggestions, story pitches, and thoughts for the site going forward. You have a voice! Just please be respectful with that voice.
Hey everyone! SFCamster and Noah coming to you with a post.
As the return of the Bounty Hunter Saga nears, we have decided to re-read every Bounty Hunter story that we can! At the end of each story, we’ll rate the tale before us, on 1-10. You’re welcome to read along with us and post your thoughts in the comments as well!
Today, we are reading the first volume, which includes episodes 1-10.
The first story in the Bounty Hunters Saga is The Rise of Jango Fortune, written by the Council’s own Superfolder CJ. It was published on June 20, 2012, so it’s one of the oldest ones there! On with the show.
After the events of Princess Labelmaker, a new student comes to McQuarrie Middle School wielding a cootie catcher styled after Jango Fett, claiming it can grant any wishes. But this student has a few secrets up his sleeve. Is Jango Fortune as good as he seems, or is something more sinister going on under the McQuarrie gang’s noses?
Noah: Jango Fortune starts as most of the old EU stories started; with a new kid coming to school. It was the EU’s own cliche! Every story had it. The culprit this time? A kid not-so-subtly named Tony D. Struction. The problem is that Tony is a biiiiit underdeveloped. What do you think, Cam?
Cam: Yeah, I agree. Tony basically shows up randomly and then leaves. We don’t know much about him. However, I like how CJ incorporated some Kellen-style doodling into the file.
Noah: About the doodle thing, totally. It made Jango Fortune very unique in the BH Saga, and cemented CJ’s place as the Superdoodler of the EU.
Cam: So, what would you rate our first read, Noah?
Noah: Hmm, well, for it’s flaws, it’s definitely written pretty well. It’s short, but gets it’s point across and the McQuarrie gang are all characterized well. It’s major cons are it’s underdeveloped ‘main’ character, Lance’s short Dark Side fake-out, and a suspicious lack of Dwight. However, it does also set up a coming sequel at the end, and it was made the first story of the great BH Saga! I’d say it earns a 6/10
Cam: Considering this was one of CJ’s first stories, I thought he did great. However, I have to agree with that rating. It’s a 6/10 for me, too.
Next up, we have Boba Felt’s Mission, posted to the website a whopping two whole years after Jango Fortune, on Februrary 25th, 2014.
When another new student arrives at McQuarrie, this time wielding Boba Felt, Tommy and Harvey are at it again, using Jack and Boba Felt against each other. But where does Boba Felt’s allegiances truly lie? Find out in Boba Felt’s Mission!
Cam: Once again, we have that classic plot in which a character comes to the school and leaves at the end. Jack brings Boba for a mission (which is the subject of this story), but he moves away about a month later.
Noah: Told you, these types of stories are everywhere in the OYEU. Jack, however, is a bit more fleshed-out than Tony D. Struction, even gaining two chapters. This lets us see that Jack really isn’t a bad guy, he’s just very easily swayable.
Cam: Yeah, Jack switches allegiance several times in the story. Overall, I do miss CJ’s doodles, but the majority of EU stories haven’t had them, which is understandable. Also, after knowing StookyLukey years ago, it’s great to read a story by him!
Noah: Aside from some grammar problems, weak pacing and again very little Dwight and Origami Yoda, I actually preferred this Episode 2 to Episode 1! I’d say it gets a 7/10.
Cam: I actually prefer Episode 1 a bit more, but I think that they both average at about the same rating. It’s a 6/10 for me.
The next story is Episode 3, Revenge of the Felt, written by Superfolder JC! A direct sequel to Boba Felt’s Mission, it was posted just a week and a half later on March 5th, 2014. So, how does it stack up against it’s predecessor?
After Jack and Boba Felt seemingly stole Origami Yoda, Tommy and the gang are on a mission to find him. On a chase that takes them all over Roanoke, are Jack’s motives really so bad, or is something else entirely going on?
Noah: First of all, as a sequel to Boba Felt, this story succeeds. Jack’s character is consistent and the twist at the end it very surprising and fun, if a bit cheesy. It’s also fun to see references to other stories by Tom Angleberger, a theme that permeates all of JC’s stories. However, one slightly annoying plot element was introduced in this story…
Cam: Wishing Skittles. Man, this story was written well, but I wish (pun intended) that this had not come up. The Skittles changed everything about the EU. Suddenly, anything was possible. That gave a catalyst for future stories, but it did take away the middle school vibe for me.
Noah: Very true. So, how would you say it ranks, Cam?
Cam: I may not like the Skittle element, but that aside, I would say this was written better than the two previous stories (would you agree?). So, it’s a 7/10 for me.
Noah: Yep, I’d say that’s an accurate ranking. 7/10 for me as well.
As we roll on, it’s time for Episode 4: The Adventures of Origami Yoda. This was posted originally in 2012, but edited by JC in 2014 to join the new series. It was a collaborative effort of Superfolders Ricky, CJ, and JC to turn it into a full, doodled, McQuarrie-style case file.
What goes on at Dwight’s house when Dwight’s away? Weird stuff, apparently! Follow Origami Yoda in his adventure through Dwight’s big house, avoiding cats, making friends and most importantly defeating the Dark Side!
Noah: This is one story that is very weird and strange in a charming way.
Cam: This story is different from the others in that it doesn’t take place at McQuarrie MS. In a way, it’s actually a breath of fresh air. It develops Origami Yoda and Dwight as characters. It can be random sometimes, but it was very funny. I loved the occasional references to Tom, JC, and Jessie. Plus, at the Epilogue, there’s a mention of a certain person named Jacob… For me, it scores an 8/10.
Noah: I’d say it scores a 6/10 for me, actually. It was just a bit too weird, but it’s still a fun, unique look at Origami Yoda.
Our next story, Episode 5: The Week of Emperor Papertine, came out in 2012 but was added to the Bounty Hunters Saga in 2014. It was written by Superfolder JohnF. It’s the longest story yet! This is the original EU story, too, creating one of the longest-running characters in the EU, and arguably the most famous: Jacob Minch.
As a new student arrives at McQuarrie, the school welcomes him with open arms. Yet, as the plot unfolds, it turns out that there may be more to the newcomer than meets the eye.
Cam: This story is one of my favorites. I remember the shredder scene clearly, even though it has been years since I last read it.
Noah: Oh, yes. This is the story that defined the EU, I feel. A new character, new origami, vaguely life-threatening situations, Harvey being good, the whole shebang.
Cam: While Jacob once again is a character that shows up in the start of the story and leaves by the end, it set up his return in future case files.
Noah: Last thing: I do think it shows its age a bit. But, the nostalgia factor keeps me going. I give it a 9/10.
Cam: Completely agree. 9/10.
This next story needs a bit of an explanation. A game run by Superfolder StookySauce, Battles was sort of like a psuedo-Pokemon type thing. So, StookySauce wrote a story about it!
Origami Yoda and Battles was written by StookySauce as a crossover between McQuarrie and his own game. Was it a good story? Let’s find out.
A strange new fad is messing with McQuarrie: Battles! A kid named Connor has brought his own characters for the McQuarrie gang’s enjoyment, but of course, the gang gets more than they bargained for when a kid claiming to be the Evil Paper Twizzler tries to destroy the game. Will he succeed or will Battles prevail?
Cam: This story was written well. I have to admit, at times, it felt like a bit of an advertisement for the Battles game. Also, it featured the character-joins-McQuarrie-and-leaves-at-the-end thing. Noah, can we come up with a name for this condition?
Noah: This looks like a case of Joiner-Leaver Syndrome, Camster. But yes, I totally agree. I have to say, it’s probably the most well-written story yet, which gives it a good boost. However, Connor and Arnold and fairly lack-luster leads. But as an advertisement it worked, as I did end up following the site all those years ago. XD
Cam: Weighing all of this, I’d give it an 8/10. What about you?
Noah: 7/10 is my rank.
Next in the lineup is Episode 7: The Mystery of the Drawa, written once again by StookyLukey!
The origami of McQuarrie is stolen by a mysterious hooded figure, and nobody has any idea what to do! The crew has to somehow get their beloved folded figures back before they are sold and lost forever!
Cam: May I just start by saying this is my favorite cover yet? The credits note SFHansel and Tyler worked on it, so good job to both of them!
Noah: Indeed. The story is quite fun as well. Thankfully, it breaks the trend of opening with a new student, and instead opens with the origami stolen by the Drawa! It also is the first story in Bounty Hunters to have extensive connections with the previous stories, bringing back several villains from before.
Cam: This is written really well. The references to the previous case files bring some continuity to the Saga. Also, using a Jawa as a villain is a really clever idea. It fits in perfectly with the Jawa’s image from the movies. Ruth is, if I may say it… an Evil Jawa.
Noah: EEEEEEEEY! *Airhorn sounds* But yes, this is one of my favorites so far. I give it a 9/10.
Cam: Right on. 9/10.
Next up, we have Episode 8: The Folds Unleashed. This episode was set up nicely in the previous case file. This came out on April 9, 2014. It was written by SFHansel, JC, and… Camster.
As Tony D. Struction and Ruth finally have the school to themselves, the McQuarrie gang is faced with a difficult task of surviving a week under their control.
Note: This also has a comment from my (Cam) 2014 self, saying “OMG you used my chapter!!!!! Ten million thank you’d from me!” I was quite mature, wasn’t I? XD
The thing is, looking back, I actually don’t recognize which one of these chapters is my own. No doubt JC made some edits. I’ll have to look it up sometime.
Cam: This story has had a lot of build because it features several of the previous villains all in one story. It’s an interesting story, combining some dark elements with a lot of action. However, at times, it can seem a bit rushed.
Noah: Well, that was another pretty interesting story. I feel that JC is the most consistent writer the EU had, when is good, since he owned it. All of his stories are well-written.
Cam: Hey! I recognize my chapter! It was more like two paragraphs. It’s the beginning of “The New Apprentice”, by Tommy.
Noah: Nice! Good for you. However, this isn’t a favorite of mine. It got a bit confusing, and Tommy’s turn to the dark side and subsequent return to the light was very fast and a bit forced. I’d rank it a 6/10.
Cam: I agree. A lot seemed forced. I’ll give it a 7/10.
Nearing the end of Volume 1, we have The Mystery of the Fortune Clone Trooper, by StarWarsFanMax. The character it introduces, Dan, has endured a lot in the series as it progressed, but is the story worthy of its current legacy?
Another new student can only mean one thing: new problems! When Dan joins McQuarrie bringing his Fortune Clone Trooper along, a mystery begins to unfold with twists and turns aplenty. A whodunit tale with Origami Yoda flair.
Noah: The Fortune Clone Trooper is an interesting one, because it introduces a bunch of EU plot threads, like Dan and the SPL. It’s legacy has endured for a long time, but the story itself kind of suffers for all the new information. It feels a bit bloated and it gets pretty confusing, especially near the end.
Cam: I like the plot twists that the Fortune Clone Trooper has. It’s intriguing and we don’t know who is behind it all until the final chapter. It’s well written and contributes nicely to the story. What’s your ranking, Noah?
Noah: I’d say 6/10. It has redeeming qualities, but it was never one of my favorites.
Cam: I’m going to give it a 8/10. I thought it was well thought out. Maybe a bit rushed, but I liked it.
At the end of Volume 1 of Origami Yoda and the Bounty Hunters is an infamous story; The Month of the Skyfolders, by Noah. (Me!) And gosh, is it…something.
A new prophecy from Origami Yoda heralds the coming of Noah Jekan, yet another new student. But this one is different, as his joining is the catalyst for a war unlike any McQuarrie has ever seen. Including the return of the feared Jacob Minch, Month of the Skyfolders is one of the EU greats.
Noah: It doesn’t deserve that title, though. I wrote this story when I was about ten years old, having no idea about basic storytelling and the fact that self-inserts were bad. But hey, at least Noah has evolved beyond my original specs for him.
Cam: That was a good story. I liked the twists that it had, particularly Noah being Jacob’s brother. It was more serious than any other previous story but it redeemed itself in the end. There were a couple parts that went by really quickly, but it was a solid conclusion to Volume 1. Noah, how do you rank your story?
Noah: Personally, I think it’s awful, except for the Jacob and Noah twist. I would give my own story a 5/10.
Cam: Geez. I feel it deserves a 7/10, especially in comparison to the first stories that we ranked 6/10.
Noah: Fine, fine, I’ll move it up to 6/10. Still, man…
Noah: So, we got through the whole of Volume 1!
Cam: Yeah man! Good job. From here, I think we can start our sign-off. Thank you everybody for reading. We hope you enjoyed. We’ll be back soon for Volume 2!
Noah: For now, we’ll leave with this; who is your favorite character from Volume 1? Personally, I’m going with the classic Jacob Minch.
With the release of OrigAvengers, Fold 1 of the MOU is now complete! For those of you who have been reading along with us since Iron Fold back in June, (Has it really been that long?) thank you so much! The MOU as a whole has been pretty experimental, and just speaking from my own views I think it’s been a resounding success so far.
However, we are nowhere near done. MOU Fold 2 is going to be massive, with new stories, new characters, new writers, new everything. The tales of the OrigAvengers will be continued, with some very new faces thrown in. It won’t start releasing until the middle of October, so, to satiate your ever hunger appetites, o faithful readers, here is the lineup of Fold 2 part 1, starting release in two months:
Iron Fold 2, by Noah
The All-Winners: F.O.L.D’s Beginnings, by Jar Jar Pleats
The Foldians of the Galaxy: Far Out!, by CJ
The Mantle of Iron Fold, by SF Guillermo
Spider-Fold: Into the OriSpider-Verse by Mega3Drive
Captain Americut 2 by Noah and Stichiella
And, part of the new Marvel Origami Elseworlds stories (It’s basically the Lost Case Files of the MOU) OrigVenom by SLS!
How’s that for a lineup? And that’s just the stuff coming out this year.
But that’s not all. Not even close.
All of you know that Origami Yoda and the Bounty Hunters has been stagnated for a long time. It’s been almost a year since Rogue Wug was posted, and left us all on an awful cliffhanger. Nobody has been writing anything for the OYBH storyline, leaving us with many questions and no idea when we’ll be getting answers.
The story of the OY:BH will finally be finished in the coming weeks, ending with two stories: Origami Yoda’s Secret War and Twilight of Student. Written by the OYEU Council, including myself, CJ, Cam, and the long-absent leader himself JC, these ending stories will, in our opinion, provide a great ending to a story three years in the making.
How’s that for a news update?
That’s right, folks! OrigAvengers is finally posted, to much anticipation from you all, I’ve noticed. Let me just say I believe it’s been worth the wait! Right here!
And stick around today, because tonight some BIG NEWS is coming for the MOU and OYEU!
Y’all know the drill by now! Go check out the newest MOU story, Agents of F.O.L.D., by clicking right here.
So, guys, I am sorry to say, due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts, and, you know, life, CJ has not been able to complete Agents of F.O.L.D. yet. However, he is working very hard to complete it, and it will most certainly be finished by next Saturday, with OrigAvengers following it the next week. So just hold tight!
But, I know that you guys like the content we produce, so I’ll give you something to chew on;
This is the chapter list for OrigAvengers. What could those names possibly mean? Take to theorizing, people. 😛

Hey OY EU Community! SFCamster here with a quick announcement.
I folded 1,000 yodas! This has been a goal for a very long time for me as a Superfolder. I started folding on September 10, 2014! I got to 660 Yodas before I packed them up for a while. Then, on September 25, 2017, I folded 219 more for hurricane awareness in an hour for the victims of Hurricane Irma.
After finding them in my closet at one point, I decided to go for it. I had 859 already folded, so I was very close. I set up and folded the rest!
Hello, everyone! It’s your friendly neighborhood superhero here! I’ve been a little offline for a little while, but I’m glad to be back.
However, I have noticed there has been an increasing amount of toxicity, arguing, and crude comments being made. I’m just going to be very clear: this is unacceptable. I’ve discussed this with Noah and Camster, and while we do not wish to make this into a bigger deal than it is, we do believe that this situation must be controlled.
I’m not going to start name-calling or pointing fingers. You know who you are.
I was reminded how Tom had to deal with some of the toxicity on his own site. Eventually, he got rid of comments all together.
I’m not going to do that. Instead, I am going to keep a stricter and more active watch on the comments. If I see even the potential for unkindness, insults, self-deprecation, rudeness, bad language, ANYTHING THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE A THREAT TO THE POSITIVITY LEVELS OF THIS COMMUNITY… I will delete those comments.
I’m not banning anyone. I don’t believe there was anyone who was right or wrong in these problems. But I am going to be watching very carefully what’s going on from now on. I want us to be a healthy, active community that doesn’t have any problems with each other.
Alright? Alright. Hey, I’m not mad at any of you. I just wanted to get my point across. In fact, I’m very proud of the OY EU and the MOU. This has been such an amazing experience for me as a writer and website-administrator. You guys, every single one of you, have been incredible. I’m very glad to have you as fellow SuperFolders.
By the way… just to get you all of your speculating senses tingling… the next story to be released is going to be titled “Agents of F.O.L.D.” Fire away those theories!!!
Your SuperFolding Friend,
Courtesy of TheWatcher, we have our first look at Clark Largent!
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen! Captain Americrease: The First Fold has now been added to the MOU canon! And we promise you; it’s a surprising one! Go check it out right here.
The third installment of the Marvel Origami Universe is here: The Unshreddible Hulk!
Written by the current head of the EU himself, Superfolder Camster, it’s sure to ‘smash’ all expectations! Read it here: The Unshreddible Hulk. And, as always, make sure to tell us what you thought!
The finished work:
Thanks for participating everybody! We’ll definitely do another one of these again on the future. Until then!
After a lot of sweat, blood, tears, procrastination, and midnight snacks to help me stay awake, I have finally finished writing “Thorigami: Lord of Folders!” With “The Invincible Iron Fold,” we got to see what Kirby High School was like; but now, we’re going to find out what it’s like back in Wheeler Academy, Kirby’s archrival!
You can read the newest addition to the MOU right here.
Dear SuperFolders from Across the Internet,
Howdy-ho, friends! I’ve just gotta say, I am sure excited for what’s going on right now on the OYEU! I’m so excited where the MOU series will take us as this universe of stories continues to expand.
However, I would like to remind everyone about a few things regarding what is allowed on the OY EU. After all, there are kids and teens who all come in a variety of ages who visit this website. Thus, we must be aware about what we comment about. Here are just a few things to keep in mind:
- NEVER be unkind to others or make them feel shut out of the EU. The EU belongs to ALL!
- Foul language and suggestive/inappropriate/extremely violent ideas and content are strictly prohibited. Also, we recommend not using other words in the place of bad ones, and even being careful about words that denote negative things (stupid, idiot, dumb, etc.). Just be aware of others who may not appreciate that kind of stuff.
- Do not share information about or links to websites, videos, or anything that may not be appropriate for young readers.
- Do not reveal any personal information about yourself beyond your name. We suggest that at the most, you should use your first name. We also recommend that you not mention your address, your full name, or any information along those lines. This is for the safety of everyone.
- No spamming. That’s a no-brainer.
- Although we enjoy everyone’s questions and enthusiasm, please understand that the EU Admins have lives of their own and that we may not always immediately answer your questions. Please be patient and don’t freak out.
One more thing: we are glad to see that everyone is interacting, sharing their own MOU ideas, having fun, and showing off their personalities. That’s great. But, there are certain things related to the Marvel universe that the OYEU community does not need. We don’t want to point fingers at anyone, because this a new thing that has been brought up. However, stories such as “Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe” and “Old Man Logan” are comics ones that have incredibly graphic and violent content. While we have designed the MOU to be for older readers, since the OY community has gotten older (that’s why the MOU takes place in high school instead of middle school), we still want everyone to be comfortable with what is presented on this website.
This does not mean stories that feature elements from the mentioned violent comics are prohibited. However, the MOU will probably never feature fan recreations of such stories because they do not represent the ideas we want to spread.
Alright. That’s all. If you’re skipping the rules just to read the MOU news, we suggest that you go back and at least quickly read over the rules. We are trying to keep all SuperFolders safe, happy, and comfortable, and we need you to help do that!
Now, the MOUSE (Marvel Origami Universe’s Scribes and Essayists) would like the announce the title of the second story of the official MOU canon. We present to you, the great, the mighty, the worthy…
This is a story that I, SuperFolder CJ, have written myself. It’s pretty long, but I hope y’all still enjoy it.
To get y’all excited for this story’s arrival (which will be very soon), I made some a instructions slideshow for how to fold one of the origami characters featured in “Thorigami.” His name is Heimdollar, a pun off Heimdall, the Keeper of the Bifrost, since the origami character is folded with a dollar. If you don’t have a dollar, just cut out a rectangle of paper!
After much anticipation, you know, hopefully, “The Invincible Iron Fold” is now live for your viewing pleasure at this link: The Invincible Iron Fold.
Enjoy the story, then come back here and tell us what you thought! Every piece of feedback is appreciated. And expect more from the MOU very soon…
The MOUSE (Marvel Origami Universe Scribes & Essayists) AKA the MOU writers would like to present to you the title of the first of the MOU stories…
Ladies and gentlemen, SuperFolders of all ages, the Origami Yoda Expanded Universe team would like to present you with something new, something fresh, something… marvelous.
That’s right! We are officially announcing the arrival of the the OYEU’s newest universe of stories – the Marvel Origami Universe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I, SuperFolder CJ, have the great privilege of working alongside SuperFolders Camster and Noah on this project. However, we need YOUR help (literally the help of ALL you people who are reading this) to make it happen. I’ll explain this in a moment.
This very well might be the greatest thing that’s happened to the OYEU. Big changes are coming. But they’re good changes.
You see, if I can be completely honest with all of you, we have entered a Dark Age of sorts, where there is an immense lack of SuperFolders and Origami Yoda fandom. But we want to BRING THAT BACK. Camster, Noah, and I, with the approval of SuperFolder JC himself, are trying to bring new life to the EU.
Now, this DOES NOT mean we’re done with Origami Star Wars stories. FEAR NOT! The OYEU continues to live on. The MOU is not a threat to the OYEU, but an expansion of it. We will finish Volume 3 of Origami Yoda and the Bounty Hunters tales eventually. I promise. For now, we are putting those stories on hold for just a little while longer so we can pursue work on the Marvel Origami Universe (MOU).
By the way, the MOU is not limited to the events and characters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Basically, we can use anyone and anything from the HUGE Marvel Multiverse to work with. So that’s pretty stooky!
Now, here’s the juicy part – the part where you come in. Actually, you know what, let me divide this part into several parts…
1. EVERYONE can create a character name for the MOU and a character with THAT name WILL be in one or more of the MOU stories. And I’m not just talking about cameos. I’m talking about heroes to supporting characters to villains. COMMENT BELOW YOUR CHARACTER NAME ON THIS POST. (Yes, it can be your own first name but preferably not your last name please. Use a fake last name.)
2. We are in DESPERATE NEED OF WRITERS. Noah has graciously taken the job of writing many of the MOU stories. Camster and I are also helping. But there are SO many more. If you want to write something, EMAIL US AT: firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no first dibs. You will be randomly assigned a story to write. That way no one feels like they got the short end of the stick. Everyone has a fair chance. As of now, three phases, or Folds, are planned. While Fold 1 is full, writers are needed for the latter two. We will eventually announce the writers along with the timeline for the Folds. That will be in the near future, so don’t forget to email us ASAP!
3. We also really need ILLUSTATORS AND ORIGAMI-FOLDERS! For illustrators: instead of doodling on pages like in the original Origami Yoda book, we just want drawings that depict significant events or origami characters of the MOU. For origami-folders: we need people to fold origami characters for the covers of the stories! Once again, you can EMAIL US AT: email@example.com. Email us and tell us you want to be an illustrator or origami-folder, and we will randomly assign you something or someone to create. Illustrators, please, be as creative as you want with your painting/drawing (as long as it looks somewhat realistic and not totally abstract). Folders, put your best effort into making the origami character look waffle-tastic! Origami instructions are not mandatory, but appreciated!
ALRIGHTY THEN! That’s all I’ve got for now! Stay tuned for a #ThrowbackThursday-style teaser for our first MOU story coming within the week, as well more announcements about both the MOU and the OYEU!!!
