The first was very nearly thrown away.  I really have been strongly
tempted to delete the story once and for all, to clear up what in the
end would only be a few kb of space.That was until Doctor Pillbox
showed up.  I very nearly wrote the third installment, but had the
feeling I should wait a bit.  I don't rush these things, clearly.
Sadface would only happen if
I kicked the bucket
Someone got ahold of my writing and little notes, setting out to
finish what I started
They do a crap job of it,
Which would make me Sadface :/
from beyond the grave.

Agreed. :)

I use the Xtranormal service as well.  There are a few RACC-ish things
up.  I was about ready to put up segments of a short movie I was
making before it went to mostly pay service.  (If it's not free, it's
probably not for me.  They still have some basic stuff that's free.  I
hope it stays that way/get more free stuff.)  It was going to be a
creepy, awesome murder mystery, involving drugs, backstabbing and a
freaky clown.
