    Herm, fixed? Think, think, think... No, I don't see. Too bad.



    Congrats Alexus! Given the amount of AARs Duke reads, the choice ought to be meaningful!

    Congrats Alexus. As Froggy said, if you get the awAARd from Duke of Wellington you know the AAR is among the greatest.
    Snake IV used to be a regular, but not anymore. You might, however, come across him at rare occasions, but that is so seldom you'll manage.

    Speech! Speech! Oh no wait, it's me who's won it. Bugger.

    About me? Well when I was young I became seperated from my family on a trip and was raised by Wolves. It was a rewarding childhood and taught me the value of a good dentist and the many ways to prepare raw venison. Sadly I was forced to leave my adopted pack when the zoo keepers threw me out of the wolf enclosure, but I still visit regularly with meat or, if I can't find any, I push one of the visitors in and walk away whistling.

    What? That wasn't what you meant? Then you should be more clear next time.

    Onto the AARs, well I suppose there about as opposite as can be. Fjords is an ongoing homage to puns, blatant comedy stereotypes and crude photoshopping, anything goes for a quick joke or a cheap laugh. Great fun to write and seemingly enjoyed by literally dozens, perhaps more.

    Butterfly on the other hand is a labour of love that regularly takes several hours per update. While Fjords is barely planned a joke ahead I've got bare bone updates for events that wont happen for years prepared. Researched to within an inch of it's life I've been gratified with the response and, at my current rate of progress, expect to still be writing it for months, possibly years. It has actually been updating slower than real time.

    Both I, and my newly enlarged ego, would like to express our thanks to the readers, lurkers and everyone who said something nice. We especially thanks those who were extra sycophantic (You know who you are Kenneth)
    The Butterfly Effect: A British AAR - "An an insane project of terrifying detail". The finest slower-than-real-time AAR on the board. Updated 11th September Through adversity, to the sea(plane).
