3kul uploaded this early onto the CCSF site, so I'm uploading it early here! :D Click DOWNLOAD to see the full-sized version!

Once upon a time, CyberLife came up with a pair of norn siblings named River and Petal. [link] And they had a brief comic strip series. And it was... well, it could have been worse. =p

Since this year's theme was "time," I decided I wanted to go back in time (huge surprise there...) and revisit this duo. Also a famous game bug. [link] So, I drew this and turned it into a series of wallpapers. Enjoy!

I love this so much.
It's been awhile, Officer. Haven't talked to you since the forums went down. It's Akai, by the way. :)

Hey Akai!

Thanks for the comment; I'm glad you liked it so much. ^_^ I miss the GW forums; I still hang out at Creatures Caves and Creaturetopia, but it's not quite the same.

Are any of the old gang active there? A reunion...sounds kind of surreal at this point.

Well, off the top of my head 3kul, Gryph (under a different screen name), and Don pop in on occasion. There are others, but it's been so long since the GW forums closed that my brain's kind of blurred who was around before then and who showed up after the closure. :P

Yeah...
I wonder what Leanne, Mat, Lep and ES are up to?

I know it was just constant arguing and bickering between us, but it was kind of like the kind you have with your siblings; where you don't entirely mean what you're saying and you're mostly doing it for fun and still like them.
Probably wasn't like that to them, but it was to me ^^;

...and Starbucks. I miss her.
MistressMonsterHugger and I exchanged e-mails for the longest time, but I haven't heard from her in a while, now.
A few other people I remember them by icons, and what they said and how nice they were, but can't remember their names...it's like it was decades ago.

Kinda makes me feel guilty, since they were all such great people...

Yeah, I'm already horrible at remembering names and avatars so trying to recall who I haven't seen from the CC in a while just leads to a whole bunch of guilt and sadness. :(

I think Leanne at least hung around Creatures Caves for a bit, but I don't recall seeing her for a few months now. :/

Thank you!

I assume you mean the official Gameware forum? I miss it too. I've been hanging around at Creaturetopia and Creatures Caves since then.
Novemwolf's avatar
Yep =(

Ah cool. I never knew about those places, I'll have to check them out.
