Sylum 10th Anniversary Question & Answer Session
After putting up the Q&A from a few years ago – we figured for the 10th Anniversary be good to open up to everyone to ask us some questions.
Use the Contact Form below to ask anything you want about characters, art, clans, storyline, the bobs, the history of sylum, the process of putting all of this together, the amount of headdesking and crying that takes place…
Each Contact Form as space for Three Questions! You can ask one or send in multiple forms for more questions. Be creative, think about the past 10 years, what you’ve read, seen posts/comments about, the characters & clans…
We’ll be collecting questions until February 5th!!
Sylum Inspiration: Dachshunds (Merry & Pippin)
You’re introduced to Merry & Pippin in Clan War (you’ll see more of them in the 10th Anniversary Edition).
The reason of showcasing Dachshunds is mainly because I had two of my own.
They are adorable, smart, stubborn, and only like other dachshunds and dachshund owners aka slaves.
Sylum 10th Anniversary Q&A
We’re going to do something a little different today.
Instead of me asking a question to discuss – I’m putting out a form for everyone to ask a question.
Ask anything you want about characters, art, clans, storyline, the bobs, the history of sylum, the process of putting all of this together, the amount of headdesking and crying that takes place…
Each Contact Form will allow Three Questions! Be creative, think about the past 10 years, what you’ve read, seen posts/comments about, the characters & clans…
We’ll be collecting questions until February 5th – this will encompass two Coffee House Fridays!
Disclaimer: We’ll answer every question – but we won’t reveal trade secrets!
In the beginning there was a story.
Then there was an email from Sam … who claimed Tony … who asked to write a story.
The rest is history.
So in theory it really was Tony’s fault.
In the early early years … Sam had drawn a few bunny attacks – considering most of the writers were being attacked left and right – it fit.
*eyes Bob and Bob 2*

This is a quick reminder – that we do have a Tumblr Page.
The reason I’m posting so soon after the last reminder – is mainly because we started a new series called: Character Introduction.
Today’s intro is Meriwether Lewis – Tallikut’s Spy Liaison.
Make sure to stop by or follow our Tumblr so not to miss out on these fun posts. Note: You don’t have to have an account to see the posts. We’ve also added Tumblr to our links section on the blog for quick access for those not interested in an account.
Another quick reminder – you can always follow @Sylum_Updates – all posts from the blog and tumblr are posted on our Twitter Account.
For a while now we’ve hinted about the Transformers.
Optimus Prime has even been seen in two Sylum Videos.
Teaser Trailer: To Rise and Rise Again
Optimus has been very inspirational for future storylines.
And is now awaiting his big debut.
New Years Resolutions!
It’s half way through January!
Did you make any? Have you kept up with them?
Four years ago Tim, Gil, Janet and I sat down and had a conversation about Sylum. We answered questions concerning different aspects of Sylum.
I figured it was an interesting look back at where we were four years ago.
Irony – we’re still discussing and building the damn wiki!

PS while there – you might want to read the 3 Year Anniversary Interview – OMG the memories!!
The Impala is important in Sylum because it’s Sam & Dean’s home. Even though now in Sylum they have a home – it’s there main source of familiarity.
There is another reason the Impala is featured, but I’ll let you figure out why that is.
It’s been a while since we had one of these!!
So figured come up with a good one as a welcome back and to start off 2015.
Many stories have started with this concept.
What if? What if Speed didn’t die? What if Speed was a Vampire…
I’m throwing out to everyone – What if? For Sylum.
What if – Warren hadn’t died…
What if – Lord Sean had survived and not Timothy Quinn…
What if – Jack the Ripper took Dean as an Apprentice…
So what ‘what if’ would you like to see from Sylum???
As we begin the 10th Anniversary Celebration.
Let’s look back to the original Soundtrack.
Clan War Soundtrack
Reminder to all that Sylum has a Tumblr.
There you’ll find more in depth information on the Sylum Block Inspirations, gif sets of Sylum movies/shows/characters, and we’re working on series of ‘Let me introduce you to…showcase character and position in clan’.
You can also submit your own inspirations.
Plus ‘ask sylum a question’.
You don’t have to have a tumblr to view or even ask questions.
So stop on by and take a look!
Look to the right or is it your left….
Anyway – the Block Inspiration that we normal post photos of actors/actress that are in Sylum is going to be a bit different this year.
This year we’re going to showcase places, items, and animals that are seen in around the Sylum Universe.
For Example – this week’s Sylum Inspiration is a Janus Coin. This coin is what Nico has in the door frame of the Manor. An old Roman Tradition where Janus watches over your comings and goings. (See archived story: Caretaker Series – Thomas Efford)
I’ll put out a blog post each Monday explaining what the inspiration is.
It’s a new way to showcase all those little things in Sylum that doesn’t get attention.
As the writers hibernate and the bunnies prep for the rest of the year…
I thought it would be fun to share 2014 stat’s for the blog.
Jensen sorry to say you lost your #1 spot and have to work to catch up with Tuckercat!!!
Sylum Advent 2014 has come to close!
The writers & artists are in hibernation for a few weeks.
We thank you for those who have commented throughout Advent. If you’re still reading and catching up – please take a moment to let them know you enjoyed their work.
And if you have any questions about the stories, series, characters – please feel free to ask.
If you haven’t read the stories yet – do understand that if you read the comments here you may be spoiled.
PS – I know everyone is excited for Clan War especially now with the sneak peaks from the Anthology. To answer the question before it gets asked – it’s being worked on and will be out this year.
