The End This Is.
From April 2012 to December 2022, this site was home to an active community who created stories based around author Tom Angleberger’s Origami Yoda book series. The site was founded by SuperFolders Jawa and JC, who originally named the site “Origami Yoda: The Expanded Universe.”, before rebranding in 2019 to SuperFolder Central. Jawa and JC didn’t run the site alone, however.
A group of moderators called “The Council” helped maintain and publish stories on the site. They included SuperFolders CJ, Peyton, Noah, Cammy, Jar Jar, and junior mods SuperFolders Hades and Guillermo. Without them, this site would’ve died unceremoniously long ago.
Readers and writers came and went throughout the years, most of which would just vanish from the community one day never to be seen again. However some left a monumental impact, like SuperFolder OscarU who created Origami Yoda: The Series, a live-action adaptation of the Origami Yoda series posted on YouTube; or SuperFolder JohnF who created a character named Jacob Minch that became so popular he actually appeared in an official entry of the Origami Yoda book series. Moderators Noah and Peyton created the Marvel and DC Origami Universes respectively, which kept the site alive for many years after the initial fanbase left. These stories have concluded however, and it is time for this site to become what it was always destined to be: An archive.
An archive to the achievement of not only the founders and creators of the site, but also the hundreds of SuperFolders, Readers, Writers, Doodlers, and more that have viewed this homepage throughout the last decade. A testament to how much imagination and creativity one person like Tom Angleberger can inspire. The memories of this site will live forever on the Internet, long after all involved with it are gone.
Whether you are visiting this site out of nostalgia or for the very first time,
Welcome, to SuperFolder Central.
This is it!
I love you guys! Thank you so much for all this wonderful time we’ve been able to spend together as fellow SuperFolders, SuperWriters, and SuperDoodlers!!!
Remember, even though the website is becoming an archive, our creative endeavors as a community do not have to end!! I can’t wait to hear all the brand new and original stories you come up with! Talk to me on Discord! I can’t wait to hear what stories you guys have to tell!
Oh, and I’m sorry about the purge of all those posts earlier today. I accidentally caused a lot of issues to my fellow mods by doing that, I sincerely apologize!
Happy New Year, everybody!
The Universe is STILL open to all!
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
A Discovery Has Been Made
Hey all, Jawa here. Long time no see, right?
Anyway, I’ve been hard at work on my final stories for the site, Bag and Crink(le) Strike Back, and The Tragic Fall of Anakin Skyfolder, both for Origami Yoda: Revisited.
This post concerns the latter of the two, and some research I was doing for it. The prologue takes place at the second Fun Night from the very first book, and so I was planning on including the flyer for it in my story. This is where the shocking discoveries occurred. Before I explain, here is the Fun Night flyer:
At first glance, you may just think that it seems like any ordinary middle school event flyer…until you read the date of Friday, May 4th.
I thought that this could just be a reference to Star Wars Day, however I wanted to see if May the 4th really fell on a Friday in 2010.
It did not.
So I decided to find the closest years in proximity of 2010 that had May 4th on a Friday, and those happened to be 2007 and 2012. Considering that 2012 was in the future, I decided to go with 2007.
The first date of May 4th lined up with the book, so next I had to test the date of the first Fun Night, which was on Friday, April 6th. Turns out, it matches up as well. So at this point I was pretty sure that the first book takes place in Spring of 2007, however there was one more thing that I needed to check.
The most pivotal part of the original book is the McQuarrie gang learning about The Twist by Chubby Checker. The song came out in 1960, so that obviously is not an issue. What I needed to check is how Harvey mentions that he knows the song. He says that he recognizes it because it appears on the soundtrack for Spider-Man 3, which released in 2007, so I needed to find the actual day it released to make sure that it still lined up with everything else.
Spider-Man 3 was released on May 4th, 2007. The exact same day as the second Fun Night. At first I thought this threw the theory out the window, as Harvey couldn’t have seen the film beforehand to know about the song. But then I realized that the soundtrack actually came out on May 1st, 2007, three days before the Fun Night. We can also assume that the track listings were posted online before this point, so there is pretty much enough evidence to confirm that Harvey could’ve known about The Twist after all.
So if we’re going off the dates from the flyers, The Strange Case of Origami Yoda takes place from April 6th, 2007 through May 4th, 2007. That’s just 29 days!
It makes sense that the book lines up with these dates in real life as well, since Tom most likely wrote the book or at the very least came up with the idea for Origami Yoda around 2007, given that Qwikpick and Stonewall Hinkleman were published in 2007 and 2009 respectively.
As for the rest of the series, we know they came out from 2011-2014. Even though it took five years total for the series to be completed, in universe the entire saga actually takes place just over the course of one year! The first book starts in the McQuarrie gang’s sixth grade spring semester, and Pickletine ends in their seventh grade spring semester. So the series canonically takes place from April 2007 through May 2008.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE!
Technically, there are two issues with this theory: In the series, The Grand Inquistor and “Robo-Legs” Maul are both mentioned. This couldn’t be possible, since both characters were created after 2008, when the story supposedly ends.
Turns out the 2012 dates also match up with both Fun Nights, so technically the series could take place from 2012-2013, allowing for both characters to be mentioned canonically. This would also make Harvey around six or seven years old when Spider-Man 3 was released to theaters. My first memory of a film was the fourth Indiana Jones, which I saw when I was seven, so there is reason to believe that Harvey could have the same memory but with Spider-Man instead.
I think both theories are acceptable, but as I’m writing this, I find the 2012 dates to be more believable, as the only problem is that the book was published two years before that. But if we’re talking strictly in universe, I think it makes more sense. In the end, this is just a rant about a fictional middle-grade book series, and you can choose which dates you think are correct.
Also if the story took place in 2012-2013, the McQuarrie gang would be my age, having been born around 2000-2001, as opposed to 1995-1996 if we go with the 2007 dates. As I grew up with the series, personally I find it more fun to pick the later dates, but going by publication date it could very well be 2007. One last fun fact before I go is that right now the McQuarrie gang would either be 20-21 or 26-27, depending on the dates. Pretty interesting, at least for me.
Anyway, that’s all I have for you today. I hope you all enjoyed my little rant, and I look forward to you guys reading my final stories as well as everyone else’s when they come out before The Archive.
May the folds be with you, always.
Addendum from the desk of SF Noah, supporting the 2012-2013 theory:
1. At the beginning of Princess Labelmaker, Sara is wearing a shirt with the Doctor Who logo on it. It could just be that she is a nerd and knows about Doctor Who for some reason, but placing it around 2013 makes much more sense as the Doctor Who 50th was airing at year, meaning it was at a worldwide peak in popularity. Sara likely became a fan around that time, explaining why she never wore the shirt before then.
2. At the end of the Pickletine in the ‘where are they now’ section, The Skateboarding Brat is wearing a t-shirt with Chopper from Rebels on it. Rebels first aired in 2014 but the characters were revealed in 2013, so it’s likely that the Brat saw Chopper and liked him so much that he made the shirt according to the T-shirt directions in Art2-D2.
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
Writer’s Blog #4– If This Be My Destiny, i might as well shave
Note from Hades: This post was written on August 12th.
Hi!! Hiiiii!! Hi hi…. hiiiiii!!!! Hades, here. So, I decided that to keep myself busy I’ll be doing a post on each of the four stories left on my slate:
- The Spider-Fold
- Origami Catwoman and the Kane Conspiracy
- Aquapleat and the Shredder Squad: Expel the Justice Pleats
- The Shredder Squad Versus The Council
- CHRONOS II: The Last Odyssey
So, with this story, the Spider-Fold, I’m very passionate. And I decided to choose the date of August 17th as my day to get it all done, and what’s the consequence? Well, I’m not shaving until I finish the story. And that day, August 17th WAS my first day of school. So, I would shave what’s almost a full mustache. (How? I’m not old.) BUT LO AND BEHOLD, MY FRIENDS, SCHOOL STARTS ON THE 15TH, APPARENTLY. Meaning I’m going in with whatever I got, woe is me.
So, the Spider-Fold. It’s a mix of several narratives, some I’m not at liberty to share, but I will a few, just for you guys. It’s based on Kraven’s Last Hunt, The Green Goblin’s Last Stand, and The Night Gwen Stacey Died. I’m proud to be able to weave these stories together to craft my own narrative
Oh, but Hades? You ask, What narrative ARE you trying to craft? Well, my dim witted child, The Spider-Fold details the story of Sebastian Merrick, yes, THE Sebastian Merrick, two years after the events of the PJOU. He’s down on his luck, he’s lost most of his friends, all he has is the girl of his dreams. And yet… he’s happy, because he defends Wheeler Academy as it’s one and only Spider-Fold. Whenever Kraven, the Hunter begins to target the villains Spider-Fold has helped reform (Some of which you may recognize from OM53’s Amazing Spider-Fold and SLS’s OrigVenom serieses…) Sebastian is forced not only to examine himself, but the impact he has on its other heroes and the school as a whole.
DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A BLAST, OR WHAT? And you might be wondering, if this is a new hero and a new take on the character… what “villains” would be redeemed? Oh, nothing much just…
- The Green Goblin
- The Hobgoblin
- Kraven, The Hunter
- Madame Web
- The Owl
- The Vulture
- & The Wall
Now that I’ve done my self promotion bit, I’m gonna talk about SFCC Year 3! SFCC Year 3 is all about closing the site, we’ll be releasing The Cold Open and A Meeting of the Minds on Friday, December 3rd. Read those two back to back! After that, weekly releases, Book of Boba Felt on December 9th, The Origami Illuminati and the Trial of the Funpire on December 16th, The Spider-Fold: Kraven’s Last Hunt on the 24th, and The Shredder Squad Versus The Council on December 30th. December 31st we will be releasing omnibuses for each universe, as well as a mega-Omnibus with every story in the main canon sorted chronologically. Why? Why not, guys?
In between those releases, we’ll be having panels for users to discuss what their plans are after Superfolder Central closes, and for me and Peyton to give out awards. It’s going to be an EVENT! An EXTRAVAGANZA!
See ya there!
I Saw the Light Fade From the Sky
Well, guys, it’s finally happened. I have completed my final story for the site. We really are in the end times.
Don’t worry, this story won’t be posted for a while; in fact, I have two completed stories ready to be published. They are Sonic the Foldhog 3 for the VGOU, and the Fold 3, officially titled Superpaperfoldgirl for the DCOU. They will be released before the end of the year, and I’m very proud of both of them, for different reasons. My favorite superhero is actually the Flash, and coincidentally both of my final stories dealt with speedsters! I find that pretty funny.
But, I’ll take this time to what will likely be my final words for the site proper. Especially with school starting soon, it’s a time of endings, and a time for beginnings. Why not both?
When I first submitted a story to the EU in 2013, there was no way I would have expected I would still be here, writing puppet fanfiction, ten years later. Young Noah would either find that really cool or really lame, the jury’s still out. In that ten-year span, I have written at least 25 stories. I say at least because some may have been lost to my hard drive, some went down with the BTFolds ship, who knows. But 25 stories written by one Superfolder DarthNoah/SF D.N./Noah remain on this site. Some were written independently and some collaboratively. All told, those stories amount to a whopping 403,208 words. That is insane.
The exhaustive list is currently The Month of the Skyfolders, Skyfolders 2, Skyfolders 3, Skyfolders 4: Halloween Special, How Noah Joined the Alliance (Skyfolders 4 1/2), Origami Yoda and the Bounty Hunters (with JC), Heir to the FUNpire, Rogue Wug, Origami Yoda’s Secret War (with the Council), Twilight of the Student (with the Council), The Invincible Iron Fold, Captain Americrease: The First Fold, The OrigAvengers (with Cam), The Imperfect Iron Fold, Captain Americut: The Fall, The OrigAvengers: Rage of Artron (with Cam), Unshreddible Hulk II (with Cam), T.H.A.N.O.S. and the Infinity Folds (with Cam), Origami Cyclops and the All-New X-Men (with Cam), The Return of Emma Frost, The End of the Line, The Fold, Captain Cold and the Fold and the forthcoming Sonic the Foldhog 3 and Superpaperfoldgirl. If you’ve read them all, don’t. Some are pretty bad. But others are really good. It’s up to you to decide which is which.
I have loved my time in the EU, now the SFC. Some of it has been stressful, some has been incredibly stupid, but most has been a lot more fun than any origami fanfiction website has any right to be. I have learned so much about plotting, character writing, dialogue, and the whole gamut. I’ve even had the pleasure of taking the definition of a self-insert character (Noah Minch) and build an actual character for him over time. This has been better than any English course will ever be, and trust me, I’m an English major.
But most importantly, I have met some incredible people through this site who I have come to know and love over the years. If you’re on the site right now, you’re probably one of them, but I’d like to give a particular shoutout to Superfolder Cammy, who has been the best writing buddy and confidante a guy could ask for. And a big thank you to Clark Largent, who stuck by me through the three years of the MOU and grew just as much as I did in that time.
Thank you all so much for having me on the site. You’ll probably still see me around here and there, but consider this my formal goodbye.
So, if you please, I bid you all a very fond farewell.
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.
