On behalf of the Court Programmer (Codepoetica) and the archivists, and in honor of J Random Lurker's birthday, it is my great honor and pleasure to announce that the Megatokyo Writer's Archive now has more of what every fanboy wants: Kimiko!

(Did you really think I was going to say filks? :))

CWDB's new digs really are rather exceedingly elegant, though, and come with lots of new toys, like this one, which shows, sadly enough, that the authors prefer Miho. The search engine has much improved, and now allows searching on date ranges, author names, work style, and boolean strings. (So you can find Kimiko, but not Miho.)

Because all's well that ends well, and to follow tradition:

"Follow the links. You won't regret it."

Where the Filks are the Game
(after U2's Where the Streets Have No Name)

I want to read
And sing along,
I want to capture the posts
That moved me to song,
I want ev'ryone
To feel the same,
Where the filks are the game.

I want to see poison vers'd in lace,
I see a schoolgirl disappear
Without a trace,
I want to help shelter them from the rain,
Where the filks are the game.

[chorus]
Where the filks are the game,
Where the filks are the game,
We're still finding
And archiving songs,
Archiving songs,
And when we go there,
We go for the muse
We could not refuse.
[/chorus]

The phorum's aflood
With the verses that haunt,
Don't let them be lost from the 'net,
Nor fall to taunts --
I'll show you a place
Stored on magnetic planes,
Where the filks are the game.

[repeat chorus]

The verses still haunt,
Don't let them be lost from the 'net,
Lost from the 'net,
I want our verse,
Want our verses to haunt,
Don't want them lost from the 'net,
Lost from the 'net,
And when we go there,
We go for the muse
We could not refuse.
