Ernesto Olivetti Week: Wrap Up

Ernesto Olivetti Week has comes to a close!

*collapse onto couch*

Please no one mention the name Ernesto for a while ….

This became bigger than we anticipated, but have to say it turned out extremely well.

Thank you to Timothy Quinn for all the hard work dealing with this Italian Bastard.

Thank you to taibhrigh for the updated images for the wiki.

Interesting facts and numbers:

20 posts … 13 more than we anticipated.

11 pieces of Jewelry (don’t forget to stop by and get your Ernesto Inspired Jewelry and Free Gift before time runs out!  We’ll keep ‘Ernesto Olivetti Collection for another week – On June 13th it will be gone!)

3 Sylum Aesthetics

6 Past Live Posts

1 New Fanmix

3.5 Hour Interview


100 New Pages to Roads Untravelled

I admit this was a fun and creative endeavor, and likely we’ll do something similar in the future.  As a matter of fact we’re already planning ‘Pirate Day’.

Though at the moment I’m recuperating with a bottle of wine on my couch!  So if you don’t see the normal amount of posts next week blame Ernesto.

I hope everyone has enjoyed Ernesto Olivetti Week.  Let us know what your thoughts, feelings, OMG WTF!! on this post … and please let us also know where you are in the world – we’re kinda curious to see how far spread Ernesto’s influence has gone.

    Bravo! It’s amazing how much Ernesto has effected Sylum.

    I’m in the Inland empire of California.

      Yes that boy infiltrated Sylum like you wouldn’t believe … seconded by his daughter (aka John Rhys)

    Loved this week so much!!! It was perfect!!
    In the land of Andrew…Ireland.

  4. Val says:

    North Carolina, USA, and for the most part I enjoyed it very much. TBH I could have lived without the ‘stupid American tourist’ scene in RU, especially since I’m from the south – but hey, your fic, write it how you please. Just as long as you know we’re not ALL that stupid. 😉

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Have you seen Night at the Museum? Pierefrancesco Favino is in it … that scene is an in-joke from that particular movie.

  5. Paula Cas says:

    Loved all the extra tidbits and sneak peeks we got this week … Even when I want to shake the computer to see if more falls out. Waving from the highest point in Maryland.

  6. Maria says:

    I loved this week! And Ernesto! 😉
    I’m from mediterranean coast, Spain. Near a Ernesto!

  7. sabinbc says:

    Loved this week! So many questions about changes. I am in Washington, DC

  8. Chera says:

    I just finished my first read of Roads Untraveled, even though I started reading yesterday. It’s amazing with the added scenes and plot changes. But I know I need to read it again to see what I missed…lol I have really enjoyed this week with the Inspector. I can tell that all of you put in a lot hours on this and I want to say thank you for all your hard work. I truly appreciate all that you do here at Sylum and I’m looking forward to where you lead us next. Awesome job everyone!

  9. Christiane Heid says:

    OMG, WTF!!! 😉 Thank you so much for this load of work to entertain us so wonderfully. I just reread Roads a couple of months ago but started it again to see what has been changed. I love this story so much!!! And for your information: I live in Schmalensee, a small village (about 450 inhabitants) in the North of Germany.

    Dear General – I would like to request vacation leave the week of September 19th. Thanks! ~Jensen/taibhrigh (Sylum’s Resident Artist)

    • Nicolaus Meridius says:

      Any specific reason for that week 😀 …. considering the work you’re doing now you’ll be ahead of the game!!

      So going to bahamas? or Aruba?

  11. Dian1988 says:

    Dear General, Thank you for this massiv job and so many new information, even if I am sad about some cannon chances concerning Horatio and Speed. I love Ernesto and John and their mates. So thank you and Timothy Quinn for this enhanced works for both stories. By the way I am from Vienna in Austria .

      We’ll explain some of the changes in an upcoming post – right now I’m still recovering 😀

    You folks continuously blow me away with the quality of your writing and intricate story lines. You write characters that jump out of the pages at you and become your friends. I absolutely love Ernesto and hope to see lots more of him in the future. Rod McKuen created a website years ago called “A Safe Place to Land” and it was my go to place knowing I would find peace and happiness in his writings. With his passing the website as well disappeared. I have found the same peace and happiness in Sylum and I thank you for all the time you put into it. And I live in the great state of Wisconsin!!

    • Christiane Heid says:

      Hi Toni,

      I did not know Rod McKuen but I searched for it by chance and found this website:
      I’m sure you already know it but I thought to just try.


      • Toni says:

        Thank you Christiane, About a month after Rod passed the website address failed and I assumed it was gone for good. As it turns out they changed the web address and I am SO happy you took the time to check it out. My first introduction to Rod’s music and poems was 1969 and he’s been in my life ever since. I feel like an old friend is back. “happy dance”
        Thank you again and hugs right back at you.
