I think Keine has the best hat. It's still darn silly though.

This is a travesty. The Cabal has been talking away here, and it’s become obvious that we will decidedly not be having a NaNoWriMo this year. Why? Because reasons.

Is this really how we want things to end up? I, for one, do not relish the idea of inertia killing off contests, one of my favourite THP institutions.

However, before I descend into ranting and get a couple of particular individuals on my case, I will admit that “timing” and “circumstances” can and do make things hard on people. Asking you guys to jump onto a full-fledged contest when things are in this state is only asking for disappointment, too. So, what do we do? Well, that’s why I’m dropping this notice a half-month in advance.

What are you on about?

Look, we haven’t had any contests this year, and it looks likely at this rate that we won’t if nobody steps up and organises one. Since it doesn’t look like anyone’s going to do that, I’ve had to jump off of my lazy ass to make it happen.

That’s why I, a shitass anon and failed writer, am bringing you…

A.T.O.M.

What.

It stands for:

ACTIVATE
THP
ONCE
MORE

That’s fucking terrible.

You come up with something better next time, then.

Okay, so is this just another annual contest, or…

Not quite. See, like I said, I’m fairly certain opening a regular contest would just be disappointing. We might end up with a couple of entries at best, based on the sentiments I’ve heard.

Instead, we’re going to be going with a much simpler premise:

If you’re a writer, UPDATE YOUR GODDAMN STORIES.

If you’re a reader, VOTE IN THE GODDAMN STORIES.

Regardless of which you are, DISCUSS GODDAMN STORIES AND 2HUS.

Wait, it’s that simple?

It’s that goddamn simple.

Calling this a “contest” is probably more than a bit disingenuous. It’s really more of a public statement, kind of like Martin Luther nailing up his list of reasons why the church sucks shit or whatever the fuck. If nobody else is going to do anything, then there’s no reason I shouldn’t do a shitty callout post.

And that’s really the whole point here: THP is only as active as you make it.

That’s why I’m calling on writers to update their stories as much as possible for the duration of the “contest”. That’s why I’m calling on anons of all stripes to read, vote, and discuss as much as possible for the same duration. That’s it.

What do we even get out of this stupid stunt?

Nothing but the pride of knowing that you’ve actually acted like a contributing member of a community for once in your sorry life.

How do we even know who wins?

That’s the thing. If everybody does their part and gets involved, we all win. Even if only half of us get involved, we still win. It’s all about generating activity.

The only way we lose is if absolutely nobody gets involved. If that happens, Okuu will be very sad.

So, when is it?

It’s partially up to you! Officially, it starts and ends in the same general range as NaNoWriMo; i.e., from 01 November to 30 November. However, with time zones and all that mess, the exact times and such when you start are all going to be relative. That’s right, we’re not going by site time. Just start and end on those dates in your local time.

Anything else we need to know before it starts?

There is a bonus objective for those of you who are willing to do things off-site.

Join the THP Discord (https://discord.gg/UPHZMWy) and come in at least once a day to discuss 2hus. You can shitpost if you want — it happens a lot anyway — but it’s really more helpful to talk about things pertinent to THP.

Don’t make Okuu sad, guys.

So you're telling me there are still stories that update here? And I shouldn't just check back here every couple years just in case A Wizard if YOU updates?

Sheeeeeeeet nigga that's all you had to say!

Activating THP? You know how crazy that sounds?

Hell yeah, this is GOOD STUFF!
>>No. 15844
I’ve been working on updates. November is the time.

Watch for it.
>>No. 15846
Oh, I forgot about another bonus objective for the truly lazy: Keep this thread bumped to the top every single day of November.

I'll do it myself if I have to, but I'd prefer for someone else take the initiative.

There are always excuses, anon.
>>No. 15861
Because Moral felt the need to bump his dumb thread, I'm gonna bump mine to remind those of you with a gnat's attention span that this is a thing. Get ready to do the absolute bare minimum to make a functioning community starting tomorrow.
>>No. 15871
Day one of this shitshow, fellow atomics. Let's go fission.
>>No. 15872
I'm too busy with irl stuff to do full nanowrimo, so I'll just aim for a total of about six to seven updates between my current stories this month.

And to try to follow and vote in a few new stories.
>>No. 15877
Day two. Reminder to all the mute-ass anons: Stop being cowards and come down to the Discord for a chat. Despite the shitposting, we do actually talk about 2hus quite a bit. I assure you we won't meme on you too hard. Well, maybe. Anyway, stay true atomics.
>>No. 15878
Kosuzu. I mean, day three.

I dunno how many of you are just crawling out of the woodwork for Nano-Reimu, but good on you if you're doing anything that looks like activity. Keep it up, fellow atomics!
>>No. 15880
Day thr-- four. Day four. Ah, fuck.

I fell asleep and forgot.
>>No. 15881
I blame Doremy for the last lapse. Damn anti-nuclear tapir.

Keep writing and voting.
>>No. 15882
Day six. Yeah, I double-bumped. What are you gonna do about it?

I needed to get back in sync.
>>No. 15883

Day eight! Can you believe it's been a week already? I can't. My sense of time is completely bonked out thanks to the writing rush.

Send help.
>>No. 15894
Day nine and ten. I'm doing about as good a job keeping up with this as updating.
>>No. 15897
Continuing into double-digits with day eleven!

Do you think sweet potatoes can be found in butts?
>>No. 15899
Day twelve? Day twelve. Please remain atomic.

Please?

It's day sixteen here, cap'n. Consider this your daily bump.
>>No. 15903
>>15902
I was aware of that and was planning on doing a second bump for day sixteen. So, uh, thanks for doing it for me, I guess.

And now this is a third just because.
>>No. 15904
Day seventeen! I only just realised that we're past the half-way point. It feels like it's been longer.
>>No. 15906
Blah, okay, here's day eighteen's bump. Be back later with the current day's.

Assuming I don't fall asleep again.
>>No. 15907
Back again with the bump for day nineteen. I did fall asleep, but it wasn't for long this time.
>>No. 15909
Day twenty dawns. We're down to a ten-count for this little stunt.
>>No. 15910
get to writing you homos
>>No. 15911
Day twenty-one bringing the count down to nine. Hard to believe we're already into the closing days of NaNoWriMo. Where did this month go?
>>No. 15912
Day twenty-two with eight more days. Don't start slipping with only this long to go.
