  1. Elenaria says:

    Oh, Digger. She knows how to prioritize! I’d follow her anywhere.

  2. Squeegy says:

    Indeed. A good, sensible companion.

  3. Rowanmdm says:

    For some reason I just thought of hobbits…

  4. TekServer says:

    Digger has reminded me of hobbits (of the most sensible sort, generally) on many occasions.


  5. Mark Antony says:

    Trawling the archives is neat. It’s like walking through a cavern where past explorers have scrawled on the walls as they went.

  6. thisfox says:

    Yeah, scrawled little arrows in different coloured chalk….

  7. TekServer says:

    … and maybe the occasional suggestive limerick, as well …


  8. jaynee says:

    There was a young wombat hight Digger,

  9. Xyon says:

    Who never once wished she was bigger,

  10. Nespin says:

    Her tunnels were convoluted,

  11. Fixer-Wolfie says:

    For she’d rather stay a little digger,
    But she couldn’t if she got bigger,
    For if she got much too fat,
    Her tunnels would end up housing bats!
    We all know guano isn’t a pleasure,
    But the stench would guard your treasure,

  12. Gen says:

    She went for a walk
    With a fistful of chalk,

  13. Dragon mith says:

    And a kid that looked like a dork…
    Hey, it rimed

  14. Anonymous says:

    And balked at a wall with a fissure.

  15. Murasaki says:

    To find of this tunnel, it measure.

  16. spellwing777 says:

    And at the darkness she didnt balk,
    And kept her stoic composure.

    (I love you people. Keep the ryme rolling!)

  17. BoardEntity says:

    for she was only seeking for closure,
    to this journey which seems,
    to end only in pipe dreams,

  18. werepixi says:

    but to explore a darkness so clean
    and to keep her mind from going mean
    she sat down and devoured a meal

    Iโ€™ve also a limerick guys,
    but to hide from your innocent eyes,
    the terrible spoiler,
    from by minds dark back boiler,
    Iโ€™ve gone and posted it in disguise!

    (the limerick is on page 251, after all the events described in the limerick have already occurred, so I canโ€™t be accuse of spoilers. Go and check it out. Possibly the most poetic 35 minutes work of my life. Not bad for a 2 am creative burst!)


  20. Arrkhal says:

    Wasn’t there a huge thing about how you shouldn’t vandalize caves (unless absolutely necessary)? Or was that later on in the archive?

  21. Mental Mouse says:

    And I’m immediately flashing to a scene from Labyrinth, where Jennifer Connelly’s character similarly marks the floorstones of the titular maze. And as soon as she walks out of sight, a little goblin-thing comes up, cusses after her… and flips the stone.

  22. TekServer says:

    I love that movie, Mental Mouse! And yes, I too was immediately reminded of that scene by Diggers arrow markings. โฌ†โ†—โ†ฉโฌ‡โ†™โฌ…โ†–โคด๐Ÿ˜œ
