The real question is, would AW miss Ciera as much as Ciera would miss AW.

Um.

Well, these are sparkly vampires. Maybe I should hit them with a little girl's glittery pink baton.

Hey guys, I just checked out the AW Twilight merchandise page. Not as bad as I'd thought:

No, Ciera, the date is just a mere coincidence. The simple truth is, the first quarter 2009 numbers showed that something drastic had to be done to keep AW afloat. What better way to do so than to seek sponsorship from a very successful author with a very successful product?

Please note that it is only April the 1st by the Gregorian calendar.
By the Julian Calendar the date is 2454922.50000.
By the Mayan Calendar the date is Haab: 3 Uayeb, Tzolkin: 9 Ahau

It is deeply culturally insensitive and disrespectful of fellow writers to presume that this "April Fool's Day" is shared across cultures.

It is deeply culturally insensitive and disrespectful of fellow writers to presume that this "April Fool's Day" is shared across cultures.

I Note that the Ancient Pre-Hysteric Pagan Celtic Irish Heathan Druids, did not Celebrate this Mockery, nor does My Beloved Edward, who is a Humorless Mishegoss.

I go now to Weep for the Cultural Crimes against my fringed upon Alleys.

As My Beloved Edward Knows Teuton is the German Root of Teutates, Cognate with Tuatha, the Ancient Celtic Vamp Big Pink Fairies. They brought Hermaneutics to the Isle of Britain.

Edward's Hermaneutic is huge. The Temporary Issue With the Hydraulics will be Resolved by Sanguinity.

This is totally awesome! I can now get all the people who love this series and tell me about it all the time and who, coincidentally tell me they want to be writers because of the Twilight series (39,786 at last count) to come onto AW...excuse me...AB, and put their money where their mouths are. Bonus is they'll feel right at home.

I don't think there are enough pics of Edward up yet, though.

And that werewolf kid...where are his pics? Seriously, not enough up yet to really show the love.

This is the result of an exciting merger between the internet's hottest property and... those films that some people quite like.

And just so you know, every time someone buys a DVD or piece of merchandise, the profits get split;

30% - Summit Entertainment
20% - Stephanie Meyer
45% - Satan
2% - Marketing
2% - Edwardian hair primping
1% - Absolute Bite

So get buying that quality merch, folks!

I knew it--just knew it. Somewhere within the bowels of AW there had to be mods with a sense of humor.

Brilliant--woke me up fer sure!

The rumors of mods with a sense of humor are a bit like the legend of Big Foot: Everyone has heard the story, some people claim to have seen the creature, but there has yet to be scientifically verifiable evidence.


Ahahahaha, very funny, guys. You had a few of us going.

Take it down now.

As moderator for the grammar forum I suggested it, but there have been so many things to change that it just hasn't happened YET.

I have a dessicated thread that was saved on my hard drive several years ago that has part of a post in it that I am certain was made by a mod. The funny part is gone missing now from bit-rot, but it was there! I do have proof, so there :tongue

I shouldn't have gotten up this morning. First I think the dryer died and all I had to do was close the door to start it.

Then I log on to AW.

And I see that huge ad for Absolute Bite and Twilight and can't figure out what's going on. I scroll down and more Twilight-themed threads and I know it's not Friday.

I check my calendar. And breathe a sigh of relief that I'm not going nuts.
AW already is. And I thank you.

But I now have a lovely avatar pic of Jacob and his, ye gods, incredibly long hair. (Maybe Bella prefers Edward not because he sparkles but because his hair isn't better than hers?)

Trotting over to Roundtable to support the werewolf faction! (Though, really, Edward IS dreamy. I mean, brooding AND sparkles? How can a girl resist?)

For the rest of the school day, I thought over and over again, "Is nothing sacred?!".

It's only been a couple of hours and I find that I'm already missing that Absolute Bite banner already. It was hilarious while it lasted ... people were completely flipping out. A great April Fool's Joke ... and how ironic that it was on my first official day here.

I'm noticing that some stuff is still being moved around. For example, Basic Writing Questions have been moved from General to right above the AW Roundtable. For a while there, I also couldn't find SYW until I realized it had been moved from its original place too.

It's going to take a bit to reorient myself. Again, excellent April Fools' Joke!! :)
