Aeon PW
All



It has been a good run with Aeon, but all things run their course and come to an end. I have watched Aeon slowly grow then die off as people moved onto other interests or found worlds that appeal to them more. Instead of leaving the server up and running empty, I have decided to turn off the server and close the player portion of the forums.



I would like to thank those that have put in their time and effort, either as DM's, builders or players. Without your efforts a world can not exist or grow into something more than a concept.



So what next, for me I am not sure, perhaps I shall learn something else perhaps not. I do know my power bill will be smaller next month, so out of sad endings a positive comes.



Goodbye and Goodluck.

Sherlock Holmes is a song by Sparks
The Great Gatsby is mentioned in Dont stand so close to me by the Police DOH LOLITA IS IN THE POLICE SONG

Bamm google ftw

Elliott Murphy have a song called like a great gatsby

C has movies themed with people going behind each other's backs

Pride and Prejudice - Sisters trying to be married off to avoid loosing their inheritance, so deceptive reasons
Educating Rita - wife goes off to get an education behind her husband's back
A Dolls House - wife commits forgery to benefit her husband without him knowing
Julius Caesar - *stab*

Could be more closely linked to wives and husbands... (P&P had the wife trying to marry the daughters off and can't remember what JC's wife's position was - did she have some involvement in betraying him?)

C....

Ok well Andy stabing seems a bit of a tenuous link to the other three.. Unless it is at some time you really want to stab one of the characters for their blatent self centeredness...

I wondered if the link is that they have all been set as texts for the HSC (higher school certificate) 2009 through to 2012.


I looked at whether they all started as plays nope. P & P was a novel, all the others started as plays.
Cant find any link in actors, time they were written, or a firm link in subject matter..

Anyone got any other ideas peoples.. Warpgoat - hmm i need to have a look at b. . musical link it could be...

It had to have a number of set words in that they gave (daffodil, romeo and juliet for example ) and Holly's english teachers name and have certain forms..alliteration simile.. made it very hard and i am no andyB when it comes to poetry.. IT really isn't worth repeating....

If only you had been online Andy when i started penning it.. Instead i had Toroi ...........

That is the only way I write poetry - spontaneous for the win:

Romeo came dancing daintly through the dirty door
with a daffodil like a golden wish, Juliet could want for no more.

That was all the info you gave (R&J, daffodil, alliteration & simile) so other lines would have the other things you didn't mention Razz. If I took more than a minute, I could probably do a better one Very Happy.

He drove his red like a ferrari, alfa romeo,
through a potted daffodil, on the boulevard,
to roar rapidly round rodeo?

That work?

*claps* I guess in the end what they had was more than adequate to win the prize anyway Smile.

Do you have the actual final answers for the quiz bits?

noooo not yet. I have been bugging Holly about the answers for weeks now. I mean the things i/we worked out often seemed so obscure... anyways we now have a nice voucher to spend and i will find out the answers, eventually. I guess the fact that we won meant most of our guesses were correct Andy..

Surely anything else would have been, though I forgot to put the Juliet line in.
Pre-pend the line "Once released from Juliet"

For some reason I found a US based influence *gestures vaguely*

Been a long time since I read them... but I think the link with the first ones (a) is that they all were, at some time, 'banned books'. The whole moral censorship thing. Just a guess.

For (b) an even more tenuous guestimate is that major characters in each indulged in suicide.

Can't even guess the others
