Ideas, that is! Yesterday, I asked for ideas for Torquere's anniversary charity sips, and Kristi P. quickly gave me not one, not two, not... Okay, you get it by now, but still: She gave me four great ideas! And now I've just finished my charity sip. So far it's called "Leather and Newfound Land", and it's about having literary names, a dog-skeptic boyfriend, and a Newfoundland puppy. It's a bit of fluff with an adorable puppy - oh, and a hot sex scene.
And, speaking about literary names: I found this quote when I researched a French poet called Gérard de Nerval (one of our heroes is named after him). Nerval is talking about his pet lobster, which he used to take for walks in the Palais Royal gardens in Paris:
"Why should a lobster be any more ridiculous than a dog? ...or a cat, or a gazelle, or a lion, or any other animal that one chooses to take for a walk? I have a liking for lobsters. They are peaceful, serious creatures. They know the secrets of the sea, they don't bark, and they don't gnaw upon one's monadic privacy like dogs do. And Goethe had an aversion to dogs, and he wasn't mad."
After that, I feel wonderfully normal!
I read and I write - everything from corporate to kink. My naughty fictional friends are always there to make my life interesting. And pester me, of course. Pesky creatures.
