What's with all the ookla's? 2019 edition

8 posts in this topic

Hello, there, little ones! You might be running around confused at the sudden appearance of many strange claiming to be an "ookla the X", while wearing the guise and skin of your former friends. You may be saying to yourself "What sort of macabre post-halloween but not quite non-demoninational-winter-solstice-holiday magical trickery is this?!"

Well, fear not my child, for I, grand pappy ookla himself, shall explain to you this tradition.

This tradition, which you find so strange, is non other than a celebration! A celebration of Life! For, you see, a long loooooong time ago, an utterly, devastatingly, unimaginably long time ago, about 30 to 40-ish years ago, the person you know as brandon's assistant, @PeterAhlstrom was born! This, in and of itself, is not the origination of this tradition. No. This tradition comes much later. Fast forward to the existance of the 17th shard, and you'll find a number of young forumites, who decided it should be a grand festival! Unfortunately, due to the spread out nature of people on the internet, there was no way to show our love and support as a community.

"But wait!" Exclaimed one young, eager forum go-er. "We could change our names!"

"That's dumb" responded nearly everybody, "What good does that do?"

"It would just be confusing," said still others.

"Well, do you have a better idea?" retorted the snippy young upstart.

And they did not. And so it was decided, every year on his grand celebration of his birth, people would change their names! The decision was made to name change to be similar to peter's original forum handle, Ookla The Mok, which he abandoned to live and work in a more professional capacity.

And so now you know the tale of this ancient tradition as old as maybe 6 or 7 years, give or take. The festivities usually last about a week, or until we get tired of it, enjoy everyone!

There's usually a new thread every year (usually, but not always, posted by myself) as a courtesy to help people unfamiliar with the tradition.

Now I understand everything about the world, the cosmere and the 17S because I know what all the ooklas are now.
