Ah, so 15 years from now, we’re still arguing over Gibraltar, but have started using psuedo-Latin in front page newspaper articles. Could this new blue wave from the 13 be called a Brentrance? A cute idea, and I will class this as mid tier.

I like this one based purely on how hard it is to do a piece like this, as in newspaper-style. Yes, I have tried. I will admit, the Latin confused me until GGA linked what it was. I think it would have been stronger to either have the main article continue or to have that be a different article. I'm... actually a little disappointed that it wasn't either of those.

Not much else to say, really, except good job, and holy cats that's an expensive paper...

It's a clever idea; basically a fic entry in and of itself. I envy this kind of creativity.

As for the picture itself, it looks and feels super sharp and clean. But it does lack a little something to make it feel like this is an actual magazine or a newspaper. Maybe it's a little too clean; it feels like I might be looking at a webpage or something.

You must have known we were going to keep reading! A full introduction to that article could have elevated this entry really high, but without it it's so disappointing. I know that it's been said already, but the impact those words could have had can't be understated.

Unless words are frowned upon in an art round. I don't know anything about that.

Congrats on inspiring several entries!
