A place for silence. A place for puppets. People don't come here for the stirring conversation.

Pull up a rocking chair and stare at the void.

"Far away from the bustling noise
At Cosmos' edge sat a quiet cottage
Where the evenings were lit up with lamps.
Lonely on the precipice it stood, touching the horizon.
When quiet souls inhabited the place
Humor shone brighter than electric lights.
There was abundance of kinship to light up the world;
The cottage was a shrine where puppets resided.
There was less embellishments
But the grandeur of the souls there shone through.
It was a humbling experience for any visitor to see -
Amazed by the rich simplicity
With which it welcomed the weary traveler." - Ratels

Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos Regional Message Board


Stirring the everlasting silence to quietly congratulate Zrewolf for being our first(?) WA Delegate...

Zrewolf, Draftie, Pfulfuflwoulfen, and Fre Chawarche


Thank you for being the place that nurtured me Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos... Now that this puppet will finally be put to use I bid everyone here a silent farewell...

This account will sit here in quiet and grow. Maybe it'll stay forever. Maybe it will leave.

Wishing Quiet Cottage on the Edge of the Cosmos a safe, peaceful and prosperous new year!


I hope everyone is staying safe out there.

I hope everyone is staying safe, staying vigilant, and practicing compassion for all those who are suffering.

I am a puppet

Enjoy your stay.

Remember then: there is only one time that is important-- Now! It is the most important time because it is the only time when we have any power.
