The rest of this just popped out of nowhere.

Good story
Obviously before Girls' Trip. Funny and a chance to steer the One culture in different directions without doing major damage to the back story. Good show.

PS - I'm not sure 30 days will be long enough.

Re: Good story
For NaNoWriMo?

No, this was just a short story, with not much point to it. I need to add a little more, however much I want to call it done and out of here.

For NaNo I'll be writing about the building of the sewer system for the city . . . with half the embassies thinking "Hmm, pipes going into every embassy . . ."

I mean they're going to need traffic cops down there, all the intel agents running optical cables . . . while Xen is distracted by the arrival of all of his kids.

Might try to publish A&W in early December, and Scrambled just after Christmas. Children in January. Something like that.

I think they meant a big art exhibition takes more than 39 days to organise.

Re: Good story
Ah. I see. I've got my head stuck in NaNo.

There should also be a picture of Rael flying. And one of Ebsa in his chef's hat, and perhaps with his hand in the dinasaur's mouth. Plus Paer riding t rex. Smart horses.

Well...
... Rael could publish his early criminal record as retaliation.
I mean when Ra'd and Isakson traveled to Makka and wreaked havoc there.

Re: Well...
Rael will think it's funny.

And rumor has it that a movie about the Rangpur survivors' early days is in the works.

Art and the Warrior . . . Art got squashed by Answer . . . maybe this is history between the Old Wolf and Art . . . *click* . . . Ohh.

Ra'd's made comments about Warriors' hobbies before. Maybe a title referring to that? Or Warrior's Art?

Fun read. Confusing title.

Excellent! A bit short, but still a good read.

Allow me to make a suggestion: There are many spots in both the Wine of the Gods' later books and in the Directorate series where a quick bit of back-up, or a small essay would make the overall story much more readable. This is a superb example. Write a dozen or so of them, and gather them into one book. Most of your fans would gladly buy it. One instance I can think of, virtually without trying, is Paer's response to the attempted assassination, especially with Rael almost dying. I'm sure your other fans can come up with a few suggestions, also.

QUERY.

==I am Administrator Keyq, with the Museum of Fine Art.==

Ch 4

==“Oh.” Administrator Cake—which was apparently spelled Keyq—swallowed. ==

We have usually seen "I'm Asnu, call me Good" but perhaps this is too informal?

I've changed it to Cake in the first instance, as that was what Ra'd heard. and later Admin Cake--which was apparently spelled Kayq . . .
