Happy Birthday staceyuk. I'm working on it, I'm working on it. These things take time.

While I was away, up North ('every planet has it's North' was one of my favourite lines from Saturday's Doctor Who.)

1. postie delivered a letter with gamiila's ticket for Islington.

2. The plot bunny struck again, with the opening paragraphs of the Sequel.

3. Preparations for the French trip got underway, just as the garage converstion has ground to a halt once again, due to overly-expensive estimates from the builder.

4. The Irish nephew got married in Cambodia.

5. MWNN took delivery of his new Palm, entered into extensive email communications with the company selling Britannica for it, didn't take delivery of his mp3 player, and broke a tooth.

The dentist called this morning, in response to the message left on the answering machine on Good Friday, and said he'd still have to wait for his appointment on 13th April, if he was suffering no more pain than he had been suffering. I doubt if he'd have been told that if he were a private patient; what happened to 'free medical care from cradle to grave'?

They're evil, I tells ya!

Didn't you say you wanted plenty of notice for Christmas 05's joint effort? Is Easter enough notice? I'm thinking Panto!

Haven't you had enough seafood to last you a lifetime?

Are you serious?

You're determined to get that panto in!

A panto could work if treated very carefully, it could get very silly!

Somehow the world needed a tentacle porn babyfic, so I was obliged to write one.

Are you serious?

Little bit. Just thought I'd give you fair warning of a another Christmas Special - though it's going to be tough topping last year's.

I have no idea about plot/theme/setting/characters (except Spike will be centre stage again.) I'm hoping you'll have retired Ms Other-Limbed from your portfolio by then.

You could take a panto and use Jossverse characters in all the roles.

Illyria would make a very twisted Cinderella.

If Illyria is Cinderella, then Wes has to be Prince Charming - where does that leave Spike?

Ooops - looks like you hooked me on this doesn't it? Want to cast the Cinderella story? We could do a crossover perhaps?

It doesn't have to be Cinderella, it was just a thought. What about Snow Off-White with Buffy? Sleeping Beauty with Cordelia? or a panto a day for a period?

or a panto a day for a period?
You like a challenge, don't you? It'd have to be the reduced panto company that did a panto a day.

Let's not go down this route. Writing the Jossverse characters is hard enough without shoehorning them into other roles.

I quite like the idea of the world as we know it is about to end for next Christmas. Perhaps Santa retires because not enough people believe in him any more and the elves need a Supply Santa ( a bit like Death taking time out in Mortand needing his apprentice.

How's your WIP coming along?
