I thought this was lost forever, but I found my story for the New Phyrexia writing contest on the old Magic forums! It’s about New Phyrexia trying to understand the purpose of jokes.

I'm not a fan of Phyrexians in general, and a lot of this was a little too for my personal taste, but I really enjoyed the bits examining elements of humanity such as family, friendship, and existential reflection. I thought that was well done and pretty poignant, and I think justified the use of Phyrexians, and Gitaxias specifically, quite well.

Thanks for sharing!

Quick post to say I've read your piece and I liked it, but I lack the energy to make a full-fledged comment; hopefully I'll come back to this. Thanks for sharing!

Puns live in a tricky space when it comes to the translation convention, so the "Translator's note" here is very amusing. Meanwhile, I love the insights that Gitaxias gains, or almost gains, before throwing them all away. The very dry, scientific language is a great contrast to the dark and disturbing experiments, too; each highlights the other without becoming overwhelming. Well done!
