And that was Dice With The Universe! A massive thank you to everyone who ever rolled a dice to see what would happen next. It is accurate to say that this series never could have happened the way it did without you. It’s been a lot of fun chronicling the adventures of Beatrice, Cromwell and The Elephants across the last two-and-a-bit years. It’s also still mildly terrifying to remember that for all that time I had no idea which way the dice would fall from one week to the next. Fortunately, even though Dice has ended, I still have plenty of mild terror to go around – my next job is to at last finish writing up my doctoral thesis on digital comics. You can expect E-merl to go quiet for the next few months while I take care of that little bit of business. See you on the flip side!
The rolls are close.
I feel the ripples of the reality that almost was.
The version of me that goes back.
That becomes the elephant that met me on the street.
That planted the seed in my head of what I’ve become.
But the last role is made. That reality never happened.
Had to have happened. Did Happen. Couldn’t have happened. Never happened.
I don’t go back. Instead:
Become a god.
Or something ike a god.
Goodbye old life. You were… chaotic. But fun.
I probably should’ve made more room for the fun.
Still. Plenty of time for that now.
All the time.
In all the worlds.
First order of business?
