Since this one is already public, I won't use it. I will, however, clean it up* and give it to Alaundo to put on the main site, if he wants.

I'll certainly try. Of course, you aren't the only one looking to bury me in work.

Just discovered this via some convoluted and random clicking, and I had to say, Bookwyrm -- that was fabulously funny. Thanks for the giggling fit, but I almost had to send you bills for my keyboard (which came dangerously to being splattered -- alongside the monitor -- with iced caffe latte from Starbucks).

Wow!

Winterfox can laugh?

Sorry. Anyway, I'm glad you liked it, especially considering all the language mistakes in it; I know you're irritated by them even more than I am, but as I've said, I wrote that while too tired to care much. (Like, for instance, using "peak" instead of "peek" . . . though that could have worked as a pun if I phrased it differently.)

hahaha I can imagine Sune, Mystra and Tymora sitting around in a salon complaining about their problems... lol. Especially Sune.

Someone please tell me where to buy FR books in Australia!! Pretty Please...

Maybe I should just hire you as my official inspirer. You're two for two so far.



Sune: "Why, Mystra, dear, you're looking down. Guy trouble?"

Mystra: "You have a really simplistic view of the world. You know that, right?"

Tymora: "Wait'll you've been around a while longer. After the first few centuries, she really starts getting repetitive."

Sune: "Oh, hush. Now, tell me all about it, Midnight."

Mystra: "It's Mystra."

Sune: "Whatever. What's the trouble with Kel this time?"

Mystra: "I just can't get him to notice me anymore. He's always too busy with his job."

Sune: "Did you try that jacket I gave you?"

Mystra: "That black thing? Yes, but he just said it looked strange."

Sune: "The pig. That's going to be a big fashion in a few centuries, I bet."

Tymora: "They were mortals once, or are those curls of yours crowding out what little brains you have? They don't think in those terms. (Besides, it was a strange jacket anyway.)"

Sune: "Maybe you should just try finding someone else. Hmm . . . you know, I keep getting a lot of thank-you prayers for your man Elminster. Why not use him for a fling?"

Mystra: "Are you kidding? After all the trouble I went through to make him forget Mystra?"

Sune: "Didn't you just say you were Mystra?"

Tymora: "She means the other one."

Sune: "Which one?"

Mystra: "The previous goddess of magic? The one Helm killed?"

Sune: "Oh, her. What was she thinking then, anyway? No matter. Say, maybe you should try Helm. It's a bit of a trick to get him out of that armor, but he's something like a lobster. Lots of work, but the meat's just . . . mmm, yummy."

Tymora: "And people claim my portfolio's limited . . . ."

Mystra: "I can't get Helm to talk to me straight anyway. I think he's feeling guilty over killing Mystra."

Sune: "Why'd you take the same name, anyway? It's just confusing."

Tymora: "Doesn't take much with you . . . ."

Sune: "Oh, hush. You're just jealous."

Tymora: "Like I could be jealous of an airhead."

Sune: "No, I'm a redhead."

Tymora: "Ought to be blond."

Sune: "Oh, I tried that one century. I remember Tempus liked it a lot. Especially when I dressed up in wolfskins for that costume party. Kept asking how many times I could 'rage' in one evening." [giggle]

Tymora: "Such a skillful pickup line."

Sune: "Clever, I know. Say, maybe you should try Tempus out sometime, Myssie. He's got a lot of energy."

Mystra: "All he ever talks about are his battles. If I want someone who'll just talk about his work, I'd just stick with Kel."

Sune: "Oh, come on, why do you want a guy to talk to? That's what we're here for. Just use guys as distractions. It keeps you sane through all the day-in, day-out work of godhood. Especially with all the prayers I get every day. Oh, by Ao, it's tiring."

Tymora: "All you have is just people asking for someone to fall in love with them. I have to deal with people asking me for help every other minute with finding a lost pin or nail. They even ask for help in fighting! Tempus wants me to stop doing that, anyway. Claims I'm taking his prayers and making him look bad at the end of every fiscal century."

Mystra: "At least he's generally nice about it. You don't have someone evil to the core trying to introduce new magic."

Tymora: "No, I do have someone evil, remember?"

Mystra: "Oh, right. Beshaba."

Tymora: "Beshaba. I don't know how that girl stays in business. How many worshipers do you get with her platform, anyway?"

Sune: "Hello? We were talking about important stuff, remember? Now, come on, Myssie, we need to give you another makeover."

Mystra: "Now? Again?"

Sune: "No time like the present! And maybe you could get Lathander. He needs to get over losing Tyche. Too bad that last plan of his didn't work."

Tymora: "I'm right here."

Sune: "Oh! Hehe. Sorry. Didn't think."

Tymora: "That's painfully obvious."



Ran out of ideas. Sorry.

Well, I ran out of ideas, like I said.

And don't go suggesting I do a "Conversations of the Gods" segment, either!

Splendid, Bookwyrm! I would like to feature such material in Candlekeep proper, if ye permit, of course.

Go right ahead. This one I managed to write while awake, or as awake as I usually am, so just take it as is. Title it "A Day At Sune's Beauty Salon." Or something like that. I can't think of anything more creative at the moment.

Bookwyrm, have you read Tymora's Luck? I think your spin on that one could be amusing...

I figured as much. It was just a good way to request your version of that tale.

Why should we, when you did so yourself?

Absolutely, positively, beautiful. When the ideas hit, let 'em rip!

This reminds me to much of that picture in Faiths and Avatars of Sune, Lliira, Sharess, and Hanali (think it's Hanali) sitting or dancing around the pool of water and they all look like they are gossiping.

For some of us, books are as important as almost anything else on earth. What a miracle it is that out of these small, flat, rigid squares of paper unfolds world after world, worlds that sing to you, comfort and quiet and excite you... Books are full of the things that you don't get in real life - wonderful, lyrical language, for instance, right off the bat. - Anne Lamott, Bird by Bird

Looks like I'm not the only one.

And I didn't hire you yet, so that invoice is invalid.

The invoice should be invalid anyway, since it's going to be a long time before there's an Azoun VI.

Like I said Bookwyrm you've got a real gift for this stuff. I wonder if any of the folks from Dragon have seen these tidbits.

Congratulations, you're a hit.
