Martha by ursulav Martha by ursulav
Martha was annoyed to discover that the #7 bus, instead of taking her to bridge club, had dropped her in yet another damn fantasy world.

The fauns in the last one had been very polite, but she’d had to fight that thing with the tentacles off with her handbag.

Heh, found this the same day I took the #7 bus to the paleotological museum. I don't play bridge, but I look somewhat like her too :D

Well, when you get followed around by giant frog, you tend to get frustrated. Especially when he stares you down every time you throw something away.
"I saw you put that paper in the plastic bin. I'm watchin' you."
Fauns are usually nice. They tend to be the more calm and playful version of the (sometimes) condescending and violent satyr.

You always make the best stories.

You ever consider making another web comic, or are the books too thick at the moment to allow for such a thing?

I just love that annoyed look on her face! That, and that tremendous creature next to her looks scared of *her*! As if it's thinking, "...I thought *I* was supposed to give *them* nightmares! Ah, well. I didn't want to sleep tonight anyway...."
