  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. 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

    I’ve also a limerick guys,
    but to hide from your innocent eyes,
    the terrible spoiler,
    from by minds dark back boiler,
    I’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 can’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. β¬†β†—β†©β¬‡β†™β¬…β†–β€΄πŸ˜œ
