Now that MARARTHON has officially taken its own life, there are a few things I’d like to get off my chest. I mean, they’ve bothered me for something like a year. That’s a long time if you think about it. (Also, I have the gift of Bourbon, so truth is coming more naturally to me at the moment.)

So, back in the day, when I was still running ITO as a Marathon site, we had the House of Luck Companion. It was a blog in which Wrk, Ryoko, and I wrote; Wrk and I covered JUICE stuff, while Ryoko handled most of the mapping articles. I deleted HOLC when I loched, but… Google Reader caches feeds; just found out! So I took the entire library of HOLC articles (nearly a hundred) and converted it as best I could into basic HTML. I might end up using a stylesheet on this page, but for now it’s pretty damn raw. There are many images missing and not all the words are still there. We were some pretty serious motherfuckers.

So I dug up some pictures from various sources. The first series is from a spoof Marathon fan-fiction I wrote a good two and a half years ago to make fun of the general idea of Marathon fan literature (this was before Gao came along and changed my opinion entirely; more on that in a later entry). I wish I could find the text, but as you will be able to tell from the pictures, the story was an incoherent crossover piece that involved such universes as The Matrix, Magic: The Gathering, The Magic Schoolbus, Star Wars, The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.I really hated the crossover theories that were prevalent at the time, such as the classic Halo/Marathon theories. I’m surprised that we haven’t had more of the same lately; maybe all those guys went back to ESB. The thought of fan-fiction has got me all riled up to tackle the subject in greater depth…
