I haven't really seen Clannad, but that seems very close to the riddle. So upon searching "Carnival of Rust," I found this: http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...68#post3765768

Sorry, that's my riddle. My computer had to have its OS reloaded...D:

Golden_dream is correct with http://forums.animesuki.com/showthre...68#post3765768

maybe I made it too easy I'll have to come up with a better one for another time...

Komari was also right on a more general level with http://forums.animesuki.com/forumdis...=74&order=desc

Can I just say they are both right?
I originally thought of the Clannad subforum, but my post is more exact and I like that...so both are technically correct...
If I have to pick one though I would say Golden_dream is more correct.

Wait, wasn't the (exact/acceptable) answer decided prior?

And if more then one is (sufficiently) correct, it's obviously first come first serve. No offense or anything, but it's kind of unfair for you to pick which you "like" more. It's either on target or it isn't.

ps. you can't copy the links like that; right click the link and click copy address—the forum shortens the visible link for aesthetic reasons, so it's invalid

well yes, but either would have been deemed acceptable...
Ok, you're right. I guess Komari gets it then I wish I could give it to both of them

ah, I see that now! Thanks for informing me (about the link thing).

Note to self: Next time I come up with a riddle, I need to make it harder

Is the riddle supposed to be written like that, or is it just bad English? In the case of the latter, can we get some clarification on the riddle's wording?

The former, for the most part.

Try breaking apart each comma as another line if you still can't understand all those run-on sentences.

Ok. After looking at it more deeply, I understand.

Pretty much nailed it.

For those that didn't have time to even see a glimpse of the riddle, then my apologies for not making it hard enough near the end of this long game.

For those still interested in the rest of the fluff:
Spoiler for the rest of an explanation:




Once again, Omedetou Komari!~

Honest, GD, it wasn't too easy. I just got lucky getting it on the first try.

Lol I kinda ran with it on some parts...

It's okay, my answer was a little too out in the open anyway, and I think I made it painfully obvious with the final parts of the riddle. When I saw all of you competitors posting in that thread it actually made me kind of nervous.

This was certainly a learning experience for me with making my first riddle. Like Illusore, I'll be sure to make something waay harder if the chance ever comes again.

Seems like this thread is heating up again to the point where the riddles are flying by.

Well that means I'm out for first prize then I'm not really that great at riddles either way and I still have 1 point compared to those who have 2-3 Would be interesting to see a 4-5 way tie with 2 points. Or a 2 way tie with 3.
