SuperFolder Central Reading Guide

Hey all, Jawa here. I noticed that we’ve been getting a few new SuperReaders/Writers on the site and I had a couple things I wanted to mention.

First – Welcome! It’s so cool to see new SuperFolders visit the site almost six years after the final book was published! I hope you all enjoy your time here on the site and make a lot of new friends.

Secondly, I wanted to give everyone (new and old) a reading guide for the site. Over the years, SFC has published hundreds of stories, and it can be a little confusing on what to read when and how all of the timelines work.

A while back, I made an “OYEU Timeline Explained” video on the SFC YouTube channel in anticipation for Twilight of the Student. This video was published nearly two years ago at this point, so I figured now is the time to give an update. If you guys want, I can make an updated video, but for now I’m just going to post this.

So here’s the official SFC Reading Guide:

An Interview with SuperDoodler CJ! (Conducted by SF Guillermo)

A couple weeks ago, we got an email from SF Guillermo who wanted to interview world famous SuperDoodler and member of the SFCouncil, CJ.

CJ lives on a remote island off the coast of JuteFruce in the DCOU, so it took a while to reach him, but he was generous enough to take time out of his day of hacking computers and drawing book covers to answer these questions. Enjoy!

SFCast Episode I: Q&A with the Mods!

Hey all, Jawa here. The first(?) episode of SFCast is now live! In this episode, we answer your questions! Check it out below!

We’re thinking about turning it into a monthly series, so let us know if you guys enjoy it!

Introducing Bag and Crink(le)!

Hey all, Jawa here. A few months ago, I discovered an old(ish) Star Wars comic called Tag and Bink. The comic follows the two title characters on their journey throughout the galaxy far, far away, as they either accidentally or purposefully cause almost all of the major events in Star Wars to happen. I really liked this concept, and thought it would be funny to make an Origami Yoda equivalent, called Bag and Crink(le).

The first story is up now in Origami Yoda: Revisited, and takes place during the events of The Strange Case of Origami Yoda. Enjoy!

Read it here!

What the heck happened to the site!?!?

Hey all, Jawa here! As some of you may have noticed, the OYEU is gone! What happened?!?

Well the EU itself isn’t gone, I mean you’re on the site right now! But what does SuperFolder Central mean?

SuperFolder Central was an idea that JC and I have been kicking around for a while, and after some discussion with the rest of The Council, we have decided to rebrand the OYEU!

SuperFolder Central, or SFC as we’ll most often call it, is a place not only for Star Wars, Marvel, and DC Origami stories…it is a place for ALL stories written by and for SuperFolders! Along with our flagship franchises, SFC will now include Fold of the Rings and Between the Folds! BTFolds has also been expanded to include non-origami stories, a first in the sites history!

The final thing we’ve added is a Resources section, which is where we’ll be collecting tips and tricks on how to improve your writing!

We hope you all enjoy the new redesign and features, and we’ll see you…on the EU- I mean SFC!

We’re in the Endgame Now: Infinity Folds is OUT NOW!

Hey everyone, Jawa here. We have LOTS of news today! First off, the title of this post: T.H.A.N.O.S. and the Infinity Folds is out NOW!!!

Noah and Cam have been working on this for months, and I really think you’ll enjoy it! It now holds the record for the longest story on the entire OYEU at a whopping 41,966 words! This has been years in the making, and we can’t thank you all enough for sticking around. But THE END THIS IS NOT! We still have some other major news:

After much thought, OrigamiLuke100, or SuperFolder Peyton, has decided to leave the OYEU Council. He has chosen to step down in order to pursue other passions. This does not mean that the DCOU is dead, but it will be released much slower than the MOU stories.

Once Peyton announced his departure, The Council decided to vote who should fill in the gap…and in a unanimous decision, please welcome Jar Jar Pleats to the OYEU Council! Jar Jar has been around for a very long time, and has always been an encouraging and friendly face. We’re glad to have him on the team. Here’s a little something he wrote for you guys:

Wow! I can not tell you guys how surprised and excited I was to find this out. I was more shocked than you guys are now, I’m certain of that. What an honor to be voted into the Council. THE Council! The Council I’ve grown to love after so many years of great stories, not just from them but from you guys as well. We, all of us, are what make this entire genre so fun and exciting. This site has been a part of my life for so many years, and I am happy to be contributing to its future.

So, what does this change? Well, on your end, not much! I still plan to visit, comment and catch up when I can. But on my end, I will also be able to help edit the stories and posts that get put up on this site as well! Cool, right? To start with, I have a new story that you have probably seen posted in the past few days, titled The Peculiar Arrival of Shang-Crease. The opening four chapters or so are up now, and it will be continued in the weeks to come. (I promise this won’t be another Guardians – Far Out!)

-Jar Jar

Phew! Three big announcements in one day! Now what are you waiting for?!? Go read T.H.A.N.O.S. and the Infinity Folds!!!!!

Introducing OYEU: Classics!

Hey all, Jawa here. As you may know, I’ve been going through a lot of the backlogged stories on the website. I’ve found many relics from the heyday of the EU, and I thought that they should all have a home in one location. So I’ve created the OYEU: Classics, a label for the most famous/important stories throughout the history of the Expanded Universe.

Here are the current entries:

  • Origami Chewbacca I and II
  • The Papertine Saga
  • The Fold of the Rings Trilogy
  • The Chosen One (or, Origami Yoda VS Fold of the Rings)

Please feel free to comment titles that you feel would fit in this category. You can find OYEU: Classics under the main EU Page.

THE REAL ORIGAMI YODA: THE SERIES IS HAPPENING!

Editor’s Note: Yeah, most of you guessed that this was an April Fool’s joke. Good on you! But hey, one can dream, right?

Hey all, Jawa here with some super exciting news! Disney/Lucasfilm have just announced that they have plans to make a live-action Origami Yoda series for Disney+! This was revealed in a joint announcement of a Percy Jackson series, also for Disney+! They went into detail on both series, but even as awesome as PJO is, we’re here to talk about Origami Yoda: There’s no release date as of yet (which is fair, considering this whole virus mess), but Dave (motherheckin’) Filoni will be overseeing the project, and there are some very notable names already attached to the series!

  • Jacob Tremblay (Wonder) as Dwight Tharp
  • Roman Griffin Davis (Jojo Rabbit) as Tommy Lomax
  • Jack Dylan Grazer (Shazam, IT) as Harvey Cunningham
  • Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things) as Kellen Campbell
  • Sophia Lillis (IT, Nancy Drew) as Sara Bolt
  • Millicent Simmonds (A Quiet Place) as Caroline Broome

No conformation on this yet, but Mark (flippin’!!!) Hamill is being rumored to cameo! (My vote is for Mr. GCF!)

Here’s a link to one of the main articles about the show(s)!

That’s all the news we have for right now, but that cast is perfect, right!?!? This is gonna be STOOKY PLASTIC DINOSAURS FIZZPOP AWESOME!!!

P.S. April Fools 😛

AN INTERVIEW WITH…TOM ANGLEBERGER!

A few months ago, I was able to catch Mr. Angleberger at a local book signing promoting the second book in his Didi Dodo series, and he was kind enough to sit down and answer some questions that The OYEU Council came up with.
