An Impromptu Decision
Hey guys! It’s Peyton. In a shocking turn of events (after some users messaging me to post them), I decided to say “eh, it’s the end of the site” and drop ALL of the Origami Universe!
Personally, I don’t consider them canon. They’re in the BTFolds, but they’re not meant to be stories that are the canon conclusions of some of the characters or stories… unless you want them to be. I might take on the arduous task, and you’ll get a post in the future about it, of making a “Canon timeline” of stories and folds. This is like a split-off timeline. Totally up to you.
It’s a dedicated hub in the BtFolds section, so feel free to check it out there! See you guys around. Here’s the hub button: THE ORIGAMI UNIVERSE
Writer’s Blog #3 — Finishing the DCOU… Before the DCOU is Finished?!
Hey guys! Peyton here.
Welcome back to the third Writer’s Blog, special thanks to Hades for writing that… rant. Today, I’m discussing some crazy events that have happened because of the slate and how this site functions.
So… Batfold 5 is done.Read the rest of this entry
VGOU Finale is UP!
Hey guys! I’m sorry about the later-than-usual posting, but I just woke up from a nap, haha.
Anyways, the finale to OM’s VGOU was completed earlier this week, and I failed to upload it on Monday, so I said, “why don’t I post it on Friday?” And, well, that’s where we are now. The VGOU finale: Super Smash Folds Ultimate, is finally up. I’m so excited for you guys to see OM53’s epic, the conclusion to his universe, and his final story for the site. Thank you guys so much for staying along for the ride with OM; I appreciate it, and I sure he appreciates it even more.
Final Creases: The LAST DCOU FRIDAY!
I… don’t know what to say. I didn’t really expect to get this done, especially tonight. It’s one of my favorite works I’ve ever done so far, and I hope you guys genuinely enjoy it. I hope, looking at the DCOU as a whole, this is a nice conclusion for all of you guys. I hope you enjoy the read as much as I had writing it. Thank you all for sticking by me this whole time,
Read the story here!
As you all know, the DCOU has officially reached it’s conclusion, and, because of that, I have decided to take a less active role on the site for the next month before it closes. Think of me now as a sort of Web-Master Sam as I pursue a few projects to help future superfolders, looking for new content to read, navigate this site a whole lot easier.
Currently, we have 373 total pages. By the time the Origami Universe drops, along with Hades’ last story for the PJOU, we will total (much to my OCD brain anger) 381. That is a lot. It’s hard to navigate, especially on a phone in which all the pages are visible. As part of the archival project, we at the mod team are working on a few things:
Firstly, the Omnibus Project. At the bottom of the site, you will see two things under the “Collected Editions,” these being the OYEU Omnibus, and the MOU Fold I Omnibus. We plan to craft more omnibuses, collecting them as downloadable links within a drop down potentially in either the Resources section or the respective universe. These will probably be relatively large in size, given the amount of content we have ALL written for the stories. Heaven forbid a nationwide blackout, but these Omnibuses, I plan (if I have the money) to get printed so at least one of us has a physical copy of the sacred texts.
Secondly, the Stats Project. This project involves giving you guys some end of the site statistics. From word count length, total comments, most commented post (except for talkzone), total views, most viewed story, etcetera. This is largely just for fun, but it will be great for you guys to see it.
Lastly, the Hubs Project. Basically, to allow for a greater navigation of our 381 stories, you’ll see various “Hubs” on the site. They’re now accessible through our “WELCOME TO SUPERFOLDER CENTRAL!” Post, stickied at the top of the page.
Mixed Feelings – The Site’s Conclusion, Cancellations, and Hard Decisions
I’ve thought about how I’d like to phrase this blog post, as I feel as though out of everyone here, this one is going to bother me the most. Over 24 hours out from this decision, and I’m still reflecting on how I’d want to phrase it, so I would like to tell a story.
When we had announced the BTFolds section of the site, a debate had sparked up amongst the various council members around Canonicity. It’s an odd debate to have, but it came from a legitimate fear. You see, from the EU’s conception, we had users that wanted their stories to be “Canon.” Ideas like Jar Jar Pleats wanting to cause chaos to an idea I had of Billy Ali (who I think appears in Fold of the Rings?) Taking up General Creaseous and causing havoc (like, legitimate danger) to all of the McQuarrie kids. When a story was put in “Legends,” it was devastating to an author; it was a side story, a non-canon blip amongst the fabled “Canon timeline”… for a fanfiction website. We had similar fears that this would happen when we announced BTFolds. We had opened the universe to the public, so anyone could write anything. Immediately, we had an early version of the PJOU (called the ROU) in which Greek Gods were real, just embodied within puppets. We had Art Trek, with Harvey as a teacher at a school for Star Trek students. We had Foldiana Jones, where Jacob Minch was seemingly made canon. We had Miss Perigami’s, where suddenly McQuarrie had a new genre of puppets to play with.
This was dangerous. It had started a debate about canonicity.Read the rest of this entry
