Hile! I have a question regarding the Unfound symbol. Is there a way to "write" it so it would read "Found" instead of "Unfound"? Thankee Sai, long days and pleasant nights.

Yes there is! I diagrammed it in paint for you.


You can knock off the first symbol, and it will spell “found”.



Apologies for being short, but no. That’s not what thetowerjunkie's for.

I am incredibly lucky to be accidental head mod over there. martinipistache2 started an amazing thing and I was incredibly grateful when he asked me to take over. I treat it like a gift, and any/all of its success really belongs to JB, who is a wonderful person, wonderful blog mod, and incredible Constant Reader.

TTJ brings me little unblemished pockets of happiness and Dark Tower love. It promotes DT fan artists and tries to bring bits and pieces of Mid-World to people’s dashes—hopefully to brighten their day.

I feel like I unintentionally started some sort of internet DT fandom war when I responded to darktowerthepathofthebeam's post—I can kind of feel the tension brewing under the surface—and I hate that. I don’t regret arguing against the douchebag-DT-fan meme, but I do kind of regret publishing the anonymous hate message (which is, as far as I know, literally the only one TTJ has ever gotten in my time as a mod/blog admin).

Basically, from this point on, I am re-pledging to keep TTJ as neutral and/or positive as possible. Part of what has always made it so great is that fans and friends have been able to view it as a DT-related internet safe-haven, and my goal is to keep it that way.

I’ll be deleting the anonymous hate post (along with the published follower count), because that’s not the point of The Tower Junkie, and any/all future hate-mail will be responded to here on my personal blog as opposed to TTJ, and it will NOT be going into the Dark Tower tags.

Moderators' Note (Chapter 2)

Hile Gunslingers!

Martinipistache here. Sarah’s told you everything and it was well said, so I won’t add anything else; but I just wanted to let you know that everything was fine here, I just need some time away from the computer to sort some things out, finally find my place in the world and take care of my new Ka-tet member: a 2 months old kitty named Mozart.

I will still read the blog and post occasionally on my main blog but mostly I will be away for the time being.

itsnineteen and magicnein will help too, as they are, like Sarah, mods on this blog for a while now, so be nice to the three of them.

Take care, Sais, you’re in good hands, and don’t hesitate to submit your art, tattoos or favourite quote.
