Final Farewell - Closure of “The Unless Press”

Dear Readers,

The last two and a half years have been amazing to me, and not just for me but for many other people as well. When The Lorax was released in cinemas on March 2nd of 2012, no one would have predicted that it would give birth to such a vibrant fandom — a fandom whose run lasted significantly longer than expected, and whose residue (or, shall we say, seeds) still pop up out of the Tumblr earth now and again. From the screenshots to the music videos, from the artwork to the in-jokes, from the cosplays to the ask blogs, and from the fandom to the film, The Lorax/Once-ler fandom and the memories that spawned from it will be imbedded into the hearts of those who experienced it for many years to come. And let us not forget that the fandom also brought about one particular newspaper — this one, in fact. But now, after more than two years, it is time for The Unless Press to close it’s doors….

October 2014 marks the closure of The Unless Press. However, there will be one more paper — our last newsletter to cover the fun times we’ve had and the beautiful memories we’ve shared — to be released sometime this month on a Thursday. This October, The Unless Press will go out with a bang and bid a fond farewell to all of its readers and to all of those in the fandom.

Do keep in mind that this does not mean that the entire blog will be deleted. Not at all. These memories, every single article, will be saved for nostalgia purposes. So this blog will not be deleted, but will simply no longer produce any more papers.

Expect one last paper sometime this month! The date of its release will be announced soon. Thank you for letting it grow!

Have you done anything in the paper with Cheapskateler yet? I'm just curious.

Hello there,

You know, I don’t remember, but I recall doing something with said blog in the past. However, the “Press” will be closing soon, so there will be no more future articles focusing on any specific ask blogs. I shall elaborate on this in the near future….

You may be thinking of mr-oncelers-secretary. The other one is a new blog.

In regards to ask-the-oncelers-secretary, the last post was 3 days ago. It seems pretty active.

Hello there,

Thank you so much for the additional information! I checked out the blog and it’s quite charming. I shall keep this ask blog in mind.

Fan art

Hey there!
Just thought I’d drop some fanart I did 3 weeks ago in case you needed it for another one of your issues.

P.S. Your issues/papers are fantastic :)

Hello there,

Thank you so much for the submissions! Your artwork is very cute. Whether or not they’ll ever be featured in the paper is uncertain, as I still don’t know if I will ever bring the newsletter back. I shall do my best to keep your artwork in mind should the paper ever return, however. Oh, and thank you for the kind words about our newspaper! :)

Hello there,

Is that blog even still functioning…? As I recall, the moderator left it ages ago, but I could be thinking of a different blog. Thank you for letting me know, in any case!

((Same with Plaid! He and Ghoul are still together, recently brought their third child into the family, and Plaid's beating his cancer. Definitely worth featuring, please.

Hey there,

I may or may not mention that, seeing as, by the time the paper returns (if it ever does return), such news will be very old. Thanks for letting me know, though!

update: mod of ask lone-ler has deleted their account and now at bored-ler.

Hello there,

Although this news is now available to see publicly here on the blog, should the paper itself ever return I shall mention this fact. Thank you very much!

((Hey I just came back from a big hiatus and I understand that you yourself are on a hiatus from this paper, but when/if you make another issue could you give me a mention of some sort? I want people to know I'm still here.))

Hello there,

Should the paper ever return, I will most certainly feature you!
