That's the game. That's it. All of it. Topography Genera is over. The end.

Any questions?

Why is the world in love again?
Why are we marching hand in hand?
Why are ocean levels rising up?
Its a brand new record for 1990!
They Might Be Giants Brand new album,
FLOOD!

Thought it would be appropriate. The first 3 lines seam very appropriate for the situation.
Edit: Yeah, questions
Spoiler (Show/Hide)
1) Ad a dglgmut is a hybrid of fears, of just Homunculi consuming other fossils?
2) EAT ate the world? That sorta a drastic change, We really didn't see EAT that much in the main blogs. It feels sorta out of nowhere. not enough build up. any resone for that?

EDIT: Question response!

1) It is a metal/flesh vessel for HOMUNCULI, literally glued together by PASSACAGLIA.
2) You literally saw EAT in almost every post on Topography Genera Center East. A few posts before the ending, we had wiseaufan01 literally call Liquid Len and say that EAT was everything, the entire universe, that it could end everything if it wanted to. The climax of Testing in Progress was pretty much EAT herself saying as much, and that was written and posted at the start of 2012. My biggest worry in writing Genera has been "oh my god this is going to be too obvious and predictable when it happens," especially since in this rewrite I have been going out of control with the "everything will end and then start all over again" motif, what with eternal return, infinite regress, rainbow gravity theory... but yes, there is still meant to be some surprise when it happens. That's actually what all the misdirection was for, it was meant to throw you enough red herrings so that you would doubt I'd actually follow through on the ending. But even still, there's still more to the ending than just "EAT ate everything." After all, Liquid Len is clearly still alive in the ending.
Fun fact: One thing I did not explicitly put anywhere was that the Larks were all Camper. It was implied, but only just about.

ORIGINAL POST: ..also. The credits in the last video kinda flubbed up at the end, though I found the end result hilarious so I kept it. Here's the full credits.

...goddammit, that means that typo's in the video too. I'm sorry!

It feels.. nice. Nice that I no longer have to worry about this freaking thing in the back of my head. Plus now I can see, in full, how this story sings in harmony with its brethren blogs (blogren?). And it so far looks like a beautiful harmony, thanks to an ending I am completely happy with. Of course, I'm speaking in riddles here. As time goes by and it feels less like giving details would be spoiling, I'll probably open up and talk a lot more frankly about what the hell Genera's ultimate purpose was and the many ways I worked to achieve it.

I'm even considering making alliterator and my Secret Area (where we planned and scrapped many ideas for this thing) public, albeit locked. Would anyone be particularly interested in that?

I love seeing how things are planned out.
