This is a brief summary of various events in the PPC, Real World Time and HST-wise, during the year 2008.

Note: Links to the Board older than 2012 are broken thanks to YourWebApps deciding to be evil. Fortunately, Tomash archived everything as far back as mid-2008, and hS put all that plus scattered post titles from even earlier up in a set of Gdocs for posterity.

Within 24 hours, it is decided that this soul-destroying smutfic is to be added to the Legendary Badfic list. Within 36 hours, Huinesoron releases a limited-edition reading of the first chapter online (limited edition because it is no longer up).
