Looking back at Gabe's Posts

Postby Taq » Sun Sep 03, 2006 7:28 pm

In this type of situation (sudden ooh realization), it’s often very interesting to go back and look at what you missed. An example would be Ted Dekker’s Circle Trilogy books (I’m about a third into Red). Of course, no one was supposed to find out Gabriel Dragsack’s identity until now, but now we can view his past posts in a new light. Anyways, I found some references to Regis Blackgaard’s love of cats, his brother Edwin, evilness, and more!

Gabriel Dragsack wrote:I do love cats! Do you have any cool cat avvies I could use?

And thanks! I've received three pm's already. Man, it certainly is nice to be welcome like this!

People just keep donating me money! Maybe I'll be a terrorist sooner than I thought! :twisted:

That is what brought me to this board in the first place! I stopped following Odyssey back in 1995, though there was a brief stint a few years later that didn't last long. My younger brother stuck with it though, but I don't see much of him anymore. :noway:

However, this town has sparked my interest once again. I haven't felt this alive in ages! O:)

As for me, I have very little interest. :anxious:

Does anyone else feel the same way? :-k

And one from Dan's post in the stickied thread:
DanP740 wrote:This is one of his early posts:

Yeah right.

Hmm. I wonder if his posts will come in handy in the future. It really is too bad that Rachel just left. She'd have loved Regis taking over Odyssey.

I knew that there was something about him that bugged me from the first PM he responded to. :anxious:

I just read his intro thread last night!!! And that post did sound a bit strange to me...but I never thought he was an NPC! He seemed like he had such a real personality, you know what I mean?

Kinda scary if you think about it... :anxious:

Yeah, I did always find it interesting that he said he'd lurked since December... I lurked for about a month and had to give in and join! Lurking for months like that would be near impossible. :noway:

I actually thought he was an NPC for the longest time....I have no clue why. Like, not suspicious of him, just plain blondness. :anxious: It was weird....I think it was his s/n, it just sounded like an NPC type name. Of course, once I finally realized he 'was' an actually user, it never entered my head that he wasn't. :(

I was once given a needle and got really, really, really sick (terminally!). :mecry: So sick that I don't think I can give blood anymore, even if I wanted to!

Gabriel wrote:The Town of Odyssey isn't an average message board, it was designed to be a virtual town. But the board has stopped being innovative. That's one of the reasons why I'm running for mayor: To restore that kind of creative thinking. By working together, under my leadership, we can return the Town of Odyssey to its former glory and build a community that's the envy of the internet! :yes:
"Sonuna" Taranimak ("Sonuna" Sharkquill) has been content lately. She admired own very fine Bed recently. She talked with a parent recently. She talked with a friend recently. She had a good meal recently. She admired a fine tastefully-arranged Desk recently.
She is a citizen of The United States of America. She is a member of The State of Minnesota. She is a member of The Town of Odyssey.
"Sonuna" Taranimak likes Bauxite, Copper, Green jade, the color navy, cloaks, ballistas, cats for their aloofness and hydras for their seven heads. When possible, she prefers to consume Dr Pepper and ramen.
She lives at a relaxed pace. She tends to avoid crowds. She has a fertile imagination. She is completely disorganized. She is very distant and reserved. She tends not to openly express emotions. She needs caffeine to get through the working day.

I skimmed through all the his posts today, and I nearly died laughing, and then nearly died again from slapping myself for all the hints that we missed! That comments about how he's a real-life twin, his repeated references to his former cat and how much he likes cats, a post about how his dream used to be to run for the mayor of the Town (town) of Odyssey, saying he would like to run Whit's End and check out the tunnel, posts about how he hasn't felt this alive in ages, the pic he posted of himself from a while ago that was a skull with a black hood on...when you combine all the different clues from the assorted posts, it's amazing that nobody was at least a bit suspicious as to Gabriel's real identity!

EDIT: Sonuna's posts are good examples, too! I just thought that he was pathetic when he said that he had been terminally ill before! And the Blackgaard quote that was edited to apply to the ToO is sheer genius! \:D/
