Well, give me an hour and I can add 1000 words. So far I'm at 2,882, my goal of hitting 5,000 by the end of the night seems well within reach. If I could only breathe out of my right nostril, it's be great!
At any rate, just because Flash linked to me (thanks!), here's a look at the names of four of the Dramatis Personae:
Lorelei Voss, a Valkyrie Apprentice
Miia Aalto, a Valkyrie Apprentice
Malcolm MacChaluim, an Uruisg
Prof. Zvonimir M. Pasternak, a God-Teacher
I'm actually pretty proud of "Zvonimir." The name just sings, don't it?
All right, enough time wasted; back to it.
