...I would make it a death penalty offence to write 'with baited breath' in a fanfic.

2016 has been a horrible year. Brexit. Trump. And the death list of Bowie, Prince, Keith Emerson, Greg Lake, Leonard Cohen, Glen Frey, Rick Parfitt, Christina Grimmie, Chyna, Alan Rickman, Victoria Wood, Gene Wilder, Kenny Baker, Robert Vaughn... I have my fingers crossed for Carrie Fisher.

Music this year has hit a new low; other than Passenger and Christine and the Queens everything I've heard has been appalling. And Louise didn't win Strictly.

But at long last there has been something to smile about. The Last Dragonslayer on Sky 1. Very much in the same style as their adaptations of Terry Pratchett's works but better (and blessedly free of David Jason). Jennifer Strange is my new heroine.

Was the Trump campaign speechwriter who wrote the speech for Melania Trump and 'borrowed' extensively from Michelle Obama and Rick Astley...

...Cassie Claire/Cassandra Clare?

Hergé, René Magritte, Thierry Boutsen, Adolphe Sax, Jacky Ickx, Eddy Merckx, Kim Huybrechts, Jean-Claude Van Damme… your boys took one Hell of a beating! Can you hear me, King Philippe? Your boys took one Hell of a beating!

The Wombat lived in Wales as a child – her sister was actually born there – and the heroine of the story I'm currently posting at the Pit of Voles is Welsh, and so we are claiming honorary Welsh status tonight.

I propose another UK referendum on a different but related subject.

"Should all Old Etonians be rounded up and exiled to Ascension Island? Yes/No."

The Isle of Man is not part of the UK, nor even of the EU, and I didn't get a vote in the referendum. So I'm not going to comment about the result except to say one thing.

This conclusively proves that David Cameron is the stupidest person ever to have been UK Prime Minister.

Thoughts on recent TV adverts: I love the Paddy Power ‘Scotland’ advert that re-writes ‘Vindaloo’ from a Scottish perspective. And I hate the ‘Haribo’ adverts; I hope the ‘happy world of Haribo’ is struck by an asteroid, or attacked by the Goa’uld, or by the aliens from ‘Independence Day’.

Here is the next chapter of my award-winning BtVS/Baldur’s Gate 2 crossover ‘Tabula Avatar’, which is getting close to the end; I estimate there will be only 2 further chapters after this one. I said the same thing last time I posted but I underestimated. The long delay in posting is mainly due to the release of the Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition expansion ‘Siege of Dragonspear’; it makes significant changes to the gameplay and I’ve not only played it more than once but have replayed the entire saga, from beginning to end, as more than one character class and with a variety of companions. Also I’ve been writing a story (‘Divakiin!’) that I haven’t posted on LiveJournal because it has chapter lengths that are longer than LJ’s posting limit.

Previous chapters can be found HERE. Rating R; this chapter is 8,000 words.

Absolutely gutted by the results of the Eurovision semi-final tonight. It was the best semi ever, with several entries that were really excellent by Eurovision standards, and only a few dreadful ones. And all the dreadful ones went through to the final and most of the excellent ones didn't.

How could they not have voted for the Belarussian elf and his wolves? After Newcastle United being relegated I was looking to Eurovision to cheer me up. No such luck.
