These past few months have been exciting for a Superosity reader. Every month is of course exciting for a Superosity reader on account of all the Superosity installments contained within each month, but these past few months have been made particularly exciting by the extra momentous nature of this period's Superosity installments.
There is much that could be said about this Board Dimension. More than enough to fill a Russian novel, although it must be admitted that most of the pages of a Russian novel are already filled with words so there isn't much space to fill in any case. If the pages of that Russian novel were blank, however? I believe those pages could readily be filled to the brim with interesting commentary on the Board Dimension. A writer-blocked Russian would probably be very relieved to have people like us around.
This is, after all, an adventure regarding one of Chris' most important relationships. We already had a massive adventure for his wife. That was his wedding, and it too was a momentous period. Now it is time to be momentous about other people. It is time to be momentous about his childhood friend, that companion and caregiver who has been there for him since before Arcadia ever taught him to see floating hearts. It is time for Boardy.
So much has happened. There is so much to say that there's no way it can all be said by one person. Let's see what other people have been saying:
Spoon says, "TOO MANY BOARDS. What is the world coming to"
Milton says, "This is the best storyline."
This may be a controversial position to hold. There is no doubt that the best storyline in the world would necessarily be a Superosity storyline, but what is the best Superosity storyline? It's a tricky question. Milton thinks it's this one.
Perhaps it's not so controversial as all that: beyond the boundaries of this humble blog, people are saying such things as,
"I do very sincerely remark that this is the funniest, best written storyline yet," by Milton Bradley. It is hard to understand when people are being serious on the Superosity message board, it is possible that nobody is ever being serious on the Superosity message board, it is a difficult message board to get one's head around even if you are a Superosity fan yourself, but let us consider the possibility that in this case "sincerely" is meant sincerely. That would mean he meant it! Just like Milton.
Funny how they share the same name.
In the same forum, RevSam is expounding that "it's just sinking in how huge this storyline is! the origin of boardy COME ON." This really gets to the crux of the matter. It is a huge storyline. It has continued for nearly six months now, but its size goes beyond that. The events are so significant, they can safely be described as hugely so.
Ringading considers that "it is only comparable to that historic moment when Bobby beat the shit out of Marlene and ran in one direction for an hour." I think it is comparable to other things, but it is certainly something to think about I guess.
So five out of six extremely intelligent and interesting people (ie. Superosity readers) agree: this is quite a grand storyline to behold. That sixth guy probably agrees too, but he's so bewildered about the number of boards that he has no energy to say so. Is this true, Spoon? Feel free to let us know.
There is so much more to be said. The right thing to do would be to list these new boards and determine which one is everybody's favourite. The other right thing to do would be to make a poll on Facebook that helps people determine which board they are most similar to. These things should be done, but I won't do these things. What I will do is say more things about it. There are so many things to say. I will say some of them.
It will take some time to decide how to synthesise them. See you in another three months or so or less or more.
