Happy birthday to jaxinny and to lilacdream7
Today has been something of an ordeal. I’ve been on an incredibly restricted diet, and have had to take some medicine with effects that are usually regarded as extremely undesirable, because my gastro-intestinal tract has to be totally empty for the internal examination tomorrow. I’ve been keeping my mind off the gnawing hunger by working hard on ‘Tabula Avatar’.
ETA: This post contained Chapter 36 last night but I've taken it down again now. I was in too much of a hurry to get it done and I didn't make it clear that several days pass between the first scenes and the last. I'm rewriting now and it will go up again shortly with new scenes inserted to account for the passage of time. Sorry.
