    And jossed!

    At least they waited until I'd finished the story before pulling the rug out.

    The Fishbowl: finished!

    My biggest story yet is finally finished. Two and a half years to write, nearly three months to publish.

    I know some people like to know a story has a proper ending before they're willing to invest time in it. I'm often one of them. If that’s you, now is the time.

    Vinyl remembers the doll. It's unmistakably hers. Except it's in Octavia's closet. Why do they have the same doll – and the same memory?

    Shameless plug: vote for the Sweetie.log video

    It would make me happy if Sweetie.log got at least an honourable mention on the Top 10 Pony Videos for July. In hindsight I picked a bad month to release it, with Bronycon and its inevitable stream of PMVs and other videos, but I can hope.

    Here's the link to the voting form

    And if you haven't seen it, here's the Sweetie.log video:

    Video of Sweetie.log

    I've made a video out of my strangest story, Sweetie.log. It's... not exactly an audio reading, not exactly an animation... it'll make sense if you watch it.

    Aragorn's Pants

    Oliver: "In the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, Aragorn's lower body wear is never described. Therefore, he never wore pants and you can't prove otherwise."

    My response...


    Aragorn sighed as he collapsed on the bench. "Finally," he said. "I've been on my feet all day."

    "Such is to be expected of a coronation, particularly one of this scale," said Arwen, approaching.

    Aragorn smiled. "It was a good coronation, though, wasn't it?"

    Things not to say to a Cardinal

    In a few weeks I'll be attending a ceremony to celebrate my aunt's 40th anniversary as a Catholic nun (and very close to her 60th birthday). As it turns out though, my respect for organised religion in general, and the Catholic Church in particular, hovers somewhere between cockroaches and Jeremy "Rhyming Slang" Hunt *. So can any of you suggest some choice lines?

    Smell

    Not long ago, I walked past a stall that smelled of those evenings I'd spend at my father's office as a kid, helping him get computers working, with a distinct scent of the blue and pink colours he insisted on painting the walls and the faintest whiff of those funny little black-and-white icons Macs used to have.

    Smell is weird.

    Sequel Boost

    Last year, I was editor on the story A Scratch On Shining Armor, an epic tale of intrigue, romance, resentment and deception. It pairs a young, rebellious Vinyl Scratch, who's had repeated run-ins with the law, with a junior guard Shining Armor, and has them play off each other in some really interesting ways. If you haven't read it, give it a go.
