I suppose I'm a bit late to the party...err...funeral here. It is with a heavy heart that I tell you Homework in a Graveyard has locked up the gate to the grounds once and for all. Autumn's posts will be missed greatly, and if she ever has something pressing to pass along, Through the Eyes of a Sorcerer will gladly accommodate for a guest post. Autumn has requested that we not do anything special for her (full details int he post) other than planting and keeping an elder dandelion somewhere in our yards. To keep with the "spirit" of things here, I decided on a commemorative poem (forgive the funky meter and rhyme scheme in advance, I tend to do strange things. They work together, but not in any recognizably conventional manner. No, this is not another limerick. Though I was tempted.) And Autumn's knack for pulling pop culture has always impressed me greatly, so I tried write a poem based loosely on the style of a certain "Year in Review" (which is not necessarily child friendly and therefore not linked).

NOTE: I'm hoping this doesn't flop miserably, but without knowledge of the group it could potentially be bad. The year in question for the tune is 2008, by the way, for those of you with some sort of idea about babies in top hats that like to sing about the disasters through the year.
Three years ago it started, 6th of June Saturday,
She opened up her bloggy-thing and began to write away.
Her mission simple, to tell of a great game,
Through her critical point of view it never did look lame!
Tenure for Dworgyn started, and the battle cry still rings,
Penny Dreadful's story came about containing all sorts of things.
Pop culture references started, and slowly they matured,
And all throughout the blog process we heard how Autumn endured.
From the cat and mouse gangs of Marleybone to strife in Dragonspyre,
Never once did she turn back and wish she had been fire.
The power of death, a nercomatic unlife,
Through the entire game Autumn played and wrote on the highlights!
And now we end this, on a note of memory,
Autumn Duskhunter, your contributions will never be forgotten by me.
The 8 Bit Trials, in modern times were fun,
And no matter where you roam next you've always got our Spiral's shining sun!
Be Well, Autumn. We won't let your battle cry die out.
Your Friend Always,
