SF Hades Presents… the PJOU Panel!

Well, well, well. Been a while, huh? Well, Dane here, finally with some good news and what might just be my final news drop for the ROU! Geez, sorry, if I’m emotional. Time just flies by so fast. I still remember last December where Peyton was struggling to edit Pleaty Jackson One, and the next day, boom, I was on the council. Now, I’m editing and posting my own, and all of your amazing stories. It’s awesome! 

So, the first piece of news. Since the ROU’s conception, we’ve held onto the name “Riordan Origami Universe,” well, no more of that, now, now we have a new name… The Percy Jackson Origami Universe. 

Next up, The Iliad is out! Go check it out, spoilers below.

So, now, I’m happy to share with you the first half of… Fold 3: The Odyssey

The Return of Luke CastePleat- By SF Hades

Ł()K!- By SF Thrawn

Label Levesque and The Hunters of Art-emis- By SF Donatello

Nico Di AngeFold and Origami Will Solace: The Town of Nero- By SF Hades 

Annashred: The Trials of Artpollo- By SF Hades

The Foust Chronicles: The Caesar Shadow- By SF Thrawn


There’s six more stories after this one, ones that I’m saving for another day. (Including a character you’ve all been begging for) And ROU Fold 3 isn’t even set in stone yet. That’s where you all come in, mythology is universal. From the Hades and God of War video games, to musicals like Hadestown, and Disney’s Hercules. Even now, you can expect a crossover with the MOU’s Norse gods with Ł()K!, yes, you heard that right. An MOU crossover. And there’s room for more as this universe nears its final fold. 

The ROU is dead. 
Long live the PJOU. 

-Hades

a quick word before the next panel

so, hades here, the ROU panel is in thirty minutes, and after that there’s the MOU panel, 6:00PM CT. I’m telling you this because Noah will be going live in the SFC youtube channel where he’ll be doing a live q&a and drawing, so just be sure to tune in. k? k. okay.

The Wizarding Folds Panel!

Hey everybody! SF Guillermo here!

Wow, the Wizarding Folds origami universe is more than a year old now. During this year I’ve been so terribly busy I haven’t been able to write a lot for you guys, but I will do everything in my power to continue this universe.

That’s why…. (drum roll please)

We’re expecting some awesome and magic stories like Foldemort (written by CD), the Adventures of Shred and Fold Weasley (by Jar Jar Pleats) and Nicholas Foldel written by me! Of course, I come today with something special. After all, what’s the Wizarding Folds without a Harry Potter story? Read Harry Paper here:

Have fun, and may the Folds be with you.

SFCCon Year Two’s DCOU Panel!

Hey everybody! Another year, another panel, huh? And right on the cusp of the closure of another fold too!

That’s right… We’re approaching the end of Fold Two! Which, I know, is a bit odd… because… where’s the team-up end-of-the-fold crossover?

As we know, there’s usually a team-up at the end of these things. VPOU had Super Smash Folds for the end of it’s fold one, MOU has had Origavengers, Rage of Artron, and T.H.A.N.O.S., and DCOU even had the Justice Pleats, but… looking at the lineup… well…

So, we have only Supaperman: Doomsclay remaining. Which, I’m sure long-time readers are asking “Peyton, where’s Paper Corps War?”

Yeah… about that… it’s cancelled… I had decided that for the sake of the narrative I was planning, there was no need for a summer camp story. While it would’ve been fun to have the characters make their puppets into paper corps characters (Theresa would’ve had a really cool Red Paper Lantern Wonder Folder), there wouldn’t have been much else in that story. The conflict wouldn’t have been there, there wouldn’t be much in the way of potential stories to tell. Stuart Jones would’ve been the main character, but besides that… yeah. I didn’t know what to put. So… Stuart Jones will return.

But Supaperman: Doomsclay…

Oh man.

You guys are in for a treat! Cammy has been hard at work with it, and in fact… you may be seeing it sooner, rather than later.

I don’t want to say much about the story, but when me and him had conversations on it, we saw the potential to tell a story that is really close to the heart, and really deep to the core. Something we’ve noticed is that us writers that have since graduated high school have been wanting to tell stories about some of the unexpected fears that happen while in high school. So, Chris Booth will be… going through a lot. That’s all I’ll say.

But… I don’t want to leave you guys reading that without something else for it, so…

Anywho…

Let’s talk Fold Three.

Fold Three is a bit tough to like… accurately describe. It’s the last fold of the DCOU, and with that comes a sort of pressure to make it good.

Earlier in the year, I had believed Fold Three would be done (And the DCOU) Before SFCCon happened. I got to say I’m not surprised that it isn’t (and that it hasn’t started). We’ve been really busy, figuring out how things should go, and the stories kind of get a bit tough to do when we’re really busy. Due dates are almost arbitrary encouragements at this point, yknow? So, I had released some information about Fold Three, including the first half.

Yeah…

Let’s talk about that as well.

Firstly, Batwomanigami has been cancelled. Break-ups, personal stuff, and also the fact that we didn’t know what to exactly do with the character. Plus, there was already a Bat-centric story in the first half of the fold. It’s almost redundant for the last fold to have so many Bat-Centric stuff.

So, for the school year of 2019-2020, The three following stories will be coming out that take place during that time:

Shredder Squad – By Me (With Jawa as a consulting/ideas person)

The Batpen – By JarJar

Kingdom Cut – By Hades

Shredder Squad tells the story of a gang of misfits and bullies, who are forced to form a team when a mysterious, overbearing force threatens to get three teachers fired. Either they stop the threat, or they’re expelled for trying…

The Batpen revolves around a familiar character taking up the BatPen moniker after Alan Wade, near the beginning of summer, mysteriously dropped the Batfold puppet and left the city of Jutefruce altogether. Can he help Kane? Or will the Batpen suffer the same fate as the one that came before?

Kingdom Cut focuses around the DCOU heroes of old, now adults, and the team that had formed around their children, from the Huntress to others. Old and New clash in this story, and, to tell you the truth… I don’t know much about it, because even Hades has kept it secret from me! So I assume he knows what he’s doing, but take this summary with a grain of salt.

Shredder Squad is really the only story of the first half that I can talk a lot about, and while I’d be happy to give you guys a sneak peek… I… don’t know. I’m in the outlining stages of it, a few chapters written already, and I kind of want to hold the cards still to my chest.

But I’m sure there’s this question, rattling in your heads…

Where is he?

Where is Alan Wade?

Oh boy, Oh-ho-ho. Oh man.

EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK

Everything had caught up with me, and I laid against the toilet bowl, puking occasionally, the hurl of leftover roast, soup, peas, rib-b-qs, and countless other things that were in my stomach now laid in the water. My teeth hurt, and my body felt weak. Literally, where had I been?

I was at that summer camp, I didn’t feel it there, I boarded the airplane, felt nothing, and I had made landfall, moved in, been here for a few months, and only now has it all hit.

Mom and Dad are dead. Okay, yeah, that hit long ago. It’s not old news, the wound is still bleeding, but it hurts, dang-it, it hurts bad.

Justice Pleats. I was at the top of my game after the whole Novick crap, and I was so high above the water that I felt as though everyone around me was grabbing for my legs. So I weighed them all down, and I had nothing, and man, I was put into a really dark space after. Richy, the Court…

…Madalyn. I loved her, I was with her and there was nothing but peace. She was the light of my life, and I sit back and I see that I was in too dark of a place to see it. I was too distant, too cut off, too mean. I said awful things to her that I’d never picture myself saying, all because I was too deep into my own head and too full of my own sorrowful bullcrap to see how much I was hurting her. The curly brown hair seemed to sag after months of being around me, as though I was holding her back. Her blue eyes, so youthful and bright, now had pain and sorrow in them. When she dumped me at Dave and Busters, I wasn’t affected. I was embarrassed. Now the puke coming from my stomach was full of those pains.

“Dude, are you okay?”

I lifted my head up, shivers on my arms. I turned to face who was talking to me, wiping the drool coming from my mouth, my hair sopping in sweat (and I hope none of it was from the toilet water either). I was in dire need of a new haircut, and a fresh shave.

He stood with his hands in his pockets, “I’m Kev.”

Hm… I wonder what this could mean…

All I’ll say is Alan is… well, displaced, to say the least.

For the last piece of information:

Fold Three will be seven stories long… the shortest of the folds, but hopefully the best. Be on the lookout for more news!

-Peyton

Q&A With The Mods!

Q: When’s the next BTFolds story?
A: A few hours from when this is posted! -Hades 

Q: Peyton, How is The Thing Burger research going? 
A: Hey! So to explain the concept of the “thing burger,” there was a burger to promote the release of 2015’s “Fantastic Four,” Sometimes called “Fant4stic” to separate it from the older films. The burger, dubbed the Thing Burger, was found at Denny’s throughout the nation, along with other skillets and plates for the other members. The thing burger consisted of a bun with burned-on cheese (to give it a rocky texture), a patty, cheese, hashbrowns, egg, bacon, and “Punch Packing” Thing sauce. The concept of “Thing Sauce” is, firstly, revolting. Combine that with the idea that the thing sauce is on this hulk-of-a-burger that comes it at 1,350 calories alone (1,950 with the addition of fries – your body needs about 2k a day!) This burger sounds terrible. But I want to know what the thing sauce is.
I run a youtube channel (Peyton Writes!) Which will discuss things like this, along with other random topics. In all the research I’ve done, I can’t figure out what the thing sauce is… So, it scares me.
Stay tuned for the video, though!

Q: What’s the best burger you ate and where? 
A: David’s Burgers, June 14th, 2021. -Hades
A: The best burger I’ve ever eaten was at a place in St. Louis. It was a bacon barbecue burger cooked to perfection, with amazing bacon, barbecue sauce, lettuce, tomato, and fried onions on top. Amazing. -Noah
A: The best burger I’ve ever had was on a cruise ship at a Guy Fieri’s place called Guy Fieri’s burgers and Fries. I would get lettuce, Ketchup, and I’d put potato sticks on there, which gave an extra crunch. I miss it daily, and I still put potato sticks on most burgers I make or have. -Peyton

Q: Camster, I can’t help but feel like you’re legally blind. Is this true?
A: No. -Camster


Q: Jar Jar, Have you ever tried British coffee?
A: Yes, but not enough shamrocks for my taste. -Jar Jar

Q: Have you ever tried making a pet character?
A: Clark has a mouse, and Mac will be getting a dog in the ROU’s Fold 3! -Hades

Q: Hades, why did you choose Lance and Amy out of all the characters?
A: The idea of using Debbie Don’s as Camp Half-Blood came to me first, and I later realized that Lance and Amy really had some interesting parallels between Mac and Ximena, and even later on I realized that Lance’s hopefulness, and Amy’s grumpy demeanor were just like Chiron and Mr. D! -Hades

Q: WHAT DO YOU ALL THINK OF VIDEO PLEATS!?!?!
A: I have to admit, I was, and still slightly am, iffy on the concept, but love the creative freedom it brings, and really hope that OM keeps learning and improving using this universe of his own as a venue. -Hades
A: Om5I think Video Pleats is a great idea, since video games are such a huge part of pop culture now. I especially love the fact that Zelda was the first story, since Zelda is my favorite video game series of all time! -Noah
A: I REALLY LIKE IT! But in all seriousness; I enjoy the Video Pleats Origami Universe. It’s a nice change of pace, the stories are all full of heart, and they’re really easy and fun to read; I should know! I’ve read all of them and been the primary editor for them. I think the concept of a connected school is a bit tough to do, but I am excited to see where it goes. -Peyton

Q: Thrawn’s dog, why did you eat his garlic bread?
A: Given that the council does not represent Thrawn’s dog, this question will go unanswered. -Hades

Q: What is the weirdest pitch you’ve ever heard for an OU?
A: I don’t want to publicly call out any users, but The Hunger Games is a bit of a weird pitch. Oh, and also Miss Peregrine. -Hades
A: The absolute weirdest pitch was from around 2013-14. Somebody wanted to write a story about Dwight going to Japan and becoming Manga Dwight for real, and he would beat up Japanese bullies with Origami Yoda by his side. It was very strange. -Noah
A: The weirdest pitch for an OU/Story I’ve heard has to be a horror ou. Firstly, I don’t think horror and origami blend well. I think that it’s a tough thing to do, and it quickly crumbles under the realization that our Puppet Fiction is not built for that genre. Not only that, but then you make it connected??? So does that mean that Penny-Wise (A penny with clown makeup) Will meet Alien-igami? Will Jason Vorcrease fight Penny-wise and Freddy Creaser in front of Creasethulu? How does that logistically work? When you take a genre and slap “OU” on it, I think there’s a big risk to it. You can’t really make, say, Cartoons connected, or Anime. It would be like if we made a “Fiction OU,” like, how? Or the one time we had planned for a Spy Origami universe, complete with Jason Bourne, John Wick, James Bond, Alex Rider, and more. I think having Horror stories may be possible for BTFolds, but not a connected Horror OU. -Peyton

Q: Jawa, do you like spicy chicken wings?
A: Yes -Jawa

Q: How have you seen SFC grow in the last year?
A: I like to think that SFC has grown so exponentially since last year, and I like to think I might’ve played a role in that. Take Thrawn, a few months ago he bragged about how Art Trek- 5,000 words- was his longest tale, now I’ve seen him write stuff that’s double in length and in quality. In the MOU and the DCOU, I’ve watched, too. And it’s so cool seeing you all grow, and it feels like just yesterday we were all producing mediocre schlocky tales in episode formats, (Guilty.) but now, look at you all! Keep on keeping on guys, you all have big things ahead of you. -Hades
A: To be perfectly honest, because of graduating and college and work, I haven’t been around the SFC as much as I would’ve liked this year. However, it’s crazy how much it’s grown even since six months ago. There’s so many stories and characters going on that it’s hard to keep track, and that’s such a cool thing. -Noah
A: I haven’t seen it grow at all. JKJK DON’T PUT THAT. Honestly, I’ve been here since 2012. I came and went, I have left and come back, but I have seen the most growth in not just the writing, but also in the community. We have a discord, and it’s great to see you guys interact and have fun. I have seen a lot of growth in the writing abilities as well. Now, what we could do is blend these together – the tight nit community, along with the honesty found there, could be suited to criticism (constructive, of course), on the stories, so that the writing (which is already pretty darn amazing) could soar to even higher reaches. Keep interacting! Keep writing! But we could use a lot more commentary on what’s being posted – what did you like about the story, rather than commenting “Great Job!”? What do you want to see happen? Theorize on the MOU, DCOU, WFOU, VGOU, PJOU, get conversations moving!

And that’s all for now, gang.

Ready Puppet One, Shredder Things, Oh My! -The Donatello Panel

Hey Superfolders!!! Even though I’m not (currently, yes that may be a possible clue) involved in any universes I wanted to do a panel! So here are some of my upcoming stories

Shredder Things: a Stranger Things story. This will be btfolds. I wanna keep the plot a mystery…for now

Origami TMNT 2: Now, I’m gonna be honest. The first wasn’t all that good, but don’t worry! I think I’ve really improved as a writer, this will be better with pacing and dialogue. 

OriMario, this will be set after super smash folds and will be about a new hero. Fred Yokio. The Supcrease Army is defeated right?, I mean at least not all of them

Ready Puppet One: Okay, I’m super excited about this one! Wyatt Cline, a fourteen year old boy is intrigued by the new pop culture club (O.A.S.I.S) and decides to fold a puppet (pun to be decided) please expect lots of pop culture references and some cringe dialogue!!! I said this would be similar to the book, after all. 



There’s a few more, but I probobly shouldn’t leak them here. (Check out the ROU panel for that) Oh wait, one more thing! Who took my Mac n cheese. I’m totally not mad and if you just tell me I (probably) won’t snap. 

That’s all, folks!

no I can’t legally say that

Oh god the feds are outside my home

Note from Hades: I’d like to take this moment to clarify upon the concept of claiming stories. You can write whatever you want, and announce it whenever you want, but alot of users have clamored to “claiming” worlds, and example of which include Stranger Things and Ready Player One. Ultimately, more than one Origami adaptation can exist of certain properties. There’s over twenty versions of Spider-Fold in the MOU, the DCOU has two Bat-Folds, and the ROU has three Pleaty Jacksons, literally, you can write whatever you want, no need to claim it, and no need to feel bad when someone else takes a story idea you had, as long as both adaptations make sure to bring something new to the table.

YodaForce’s Panel

It’s been a while, my friends! There are plenty of excuses for my absence, I promise, but I figured that I would make it up to all with my very own panel, along with some stories set to release this year.

First, we’ll start off with Falcut: Where’s Cap!? It’s an MOU story I’ve been working on for a while now, and thankfully finished! And guess what? You can read it soon! It’ll be out today, hopefully. If I don’t procrastinate too much, that is.

A brief rundown of what it’s all about: Laura and Lucas (the canon MOU Falcon) end up finding two potential candidates for the new title of Captain Americut. However, problems arise when the rejected candidate decides to stir up trouble in retaliation. Lucas must work with the other awaiting candidate (Ruffindor Abramovich), even if their relationship is a little…rocky.

The next thing I want to announce is the return of Dragon Fold Z! While the AFOU is scrapped, I will be writing a one-off series about a boy trying to liven up his space camp experience with Dragon Ball themed puppets.

The tales of Leatherfold will return! This time, following the story of Arnold Kent, a boy who’s being persuaded by his best friend to investigate the strange case of Leatherfold. It will, too, be a one-off series.

Lastly, we got Green Arrowigami: Dart Country! It is currently in the works, and I plan on it being released sometime next month. This time, Cooper King will be travelling to southern Louisiana with his former enemy, Red Dart. But even being in an entirely new place can cause consequences.

And that’s all! I hope you guys enjoyed my panel. Until next time!

SF CD Presents… The Micahlorian

Hey, SFC! CD here with a big announcement: i’m working on a new series! Now, over the years there have been a lot of puppet fiction adaptations of The Mandalorian. First there was “The Mandafoldian” (by SF Guillermo), next there was “The Foldalorian” (by SLS), and now my adaptation, which I would like to announce is called “The Micahlorian.”

However, while the two other adaptations were released as one singular story, the Micahlorian will be split into three parts.

This trilogy follows Captain Micah immediately after the events of Emperor Pickletine Rides the Bus, when Origami Yoda boards the Mail-lennium Falcon and is sent to help Captain Micah. Micah, at first, wants nothing to do with him, but slowly discovers that Origami Yoda gives great advice. Micah takes him to school to help solve all of his problems, which he does! But, just when all seems well for Micah, he recieves a distress call from McQuarrie Middle School, saying that Origami Yoda must return, for a new threat has risen…

What is this new threat? Who sent the distress call? All will be revealed when The Micahlorian is released!

Origami and Artwork Showcase

Hey, howdy, hey, y’all, it’s Hades, welcome to the origami and art showcase. We have OM53’s origami, my cosplay of Sebastian Merrick from the ROU, and something that I absolutely love.

I talked my good friend, Becky, into doing a drawing of Mac Astley and Edward Emily, and let’s just say she delivered with three drawings each of our guys here. Sebastian’s coming later tonight!

Catch you on the flip side!
