How droll.

I was not written about.

This is the best day ever. I think that calls for a drink.

It was worth it. All of it. Every single second.

Here's the thing, I actually don't.

I enjoy mocking those who get one far too much, especially when we've discussed this between some of us before and teased each other about the prospect.


Like Gottii, poor bastard.

Very amusing, and quite charming that those who have been featured have taken their lampooning with such grace. Good work and a well measured dose of parody for the seriousness that this board often entails.

I am not sure that screaming it here is the best way to continue dodging it... It might give people ideas.


Psht, how bad can it be?

I mean when I sat there and asked myself that same question, I came to the horrific thought of someone being in a love triangle with Laerise Fierach and Lord Vaari. But that's horror, not romantic fiction, so it doesn't count thankfully.


Oh, but my dear Cael, they've started a horror line. That was the label of mine.

I can see it already. A dreadful tale of brainwashing and sinister obsession, as the brave Caellach must fight against the wiles of his new master and mistress, to free his mind and body from slavery...

...but when it comes to it, does he really want to?

Come drop by for drinks or something. Maybe we'll oblige.

And then maybe that'll be the basis of the next novel.

Having finished Kihtaled Park, I can say that it's an amusing satire of Khanid noble society and doesn't appear to have any scandalous or 'naughty' bits.

Of course not. That would be unseemly.

Oh huh, I was actually referring to Mr Marellus... "idea".

I would never dare be so familiar with you. My apologies.

Hmm, considering that Interstellar Intrigue books are far from factual, and my life at times resembles one of these books, I think I would welcome one written about me.
It would probably be a boring story, if the writers keep true to their tradition of fact-free fiction, so I guess this could actually improve my image.

It took me a good bottle of vodka to come up with something that bad.


My previous worst was around the third bottle, involving the hero having a wild romp with one Jade Constantine. Who proceeds to give a running commentary throughout the entire coitus making it sound better than it really was throughout the entire liason, using long and unnecessarily complicated words.

You do realise that the Empire banning them does literally nothing, right?

Round about six years ago I used to have a great racket smuggling them across the Caldari-Amarr border. The fact that there's no legal outlet for them meant I could charge the back-alley bookstores in Devoid and Tash-Murkon whatever the hell I wanted for them - they weren't getting them any other way!

Perhaps the next book will be about Andreus Ixiris, dashing young smuggler.
