    My pleasure

    Sometimes I get these bursts of imagination, especially when on the forum, but sometimes in live conversation as well. And I love writing not so much for people, but for a person, just one person, or two or three, who are always my friends, since I know them well and can joke with them. I've written a funny novella about my high school friend being some sort of female medieval tyrant, four or five of my friends I have sent into hilarious and absurd detective missions, and I'm currently writing a story for my friend from Finland, where she's a main character

    "Just like that," says Danko. "It's magic."

    So don't worry, given what a crazy person I am, there will be more. In fact I could write one more, but I don't wanna fake it, so to say, better to wait for 'crazyness' to take me over.

    And it will, cause I'm a nut in a nutshell

    You sound like a terrific guy, Danko Your friends are too lucky to have you in their lives. And so are we, your 'extended friends' Feel free to post your random displays of inspiration anytime!

    I write a lot but I am not inspired by real people. Or maybe I am subconsciously, but I don't keep anyone in mind when I am writing.

    Thank you very very much Extended friends - sounds like the extended version of a film on a DVD But you are much more than the extra content

    I also write the standard stories, as you say, that are not so inspired by real people, at least not consciously. But perhaps when I am tired of these, and it's time to relax, I write this kind of stuff. It does relax a lot, I'm enjoying it very much.

    See you! I'm gonna watch Sleepy Hollow film now, sounds like a great enjoyment!

    I used to have a Nimueh wallpaper Showed it to many of my friends, persuaded them how a witch is not necessarily ugly and with a crooked nose.

    Nimueh rules! I hope we do see her in season 3! There were some rumours about her appearing in season 2, and I hope that these rumours now are not the same as the previous ones.

    As long as Arthur comes back I'm a happy camper. I have it easy

    Just a small announcement, I'm working on the proofing everyone sent me for the 'pedia. I won't be around often the next few days; one of the medications they have me on is cause an adverse reaction so I am having difficulties staying awake and functioning. I even got kicked out of my sentencing in court today due to it. Kinda funny.

    Take care every!

    Hmm, the Rising Sun... I like it! How is it said in Spanish? In Serbian it's "Izlazeche Sunce" (pronounced Eezlaazeche Soontzce, but briskly, without long vowels, and ch is very soft, like in Italian for example)

    And that Merlin font is great, I downloaded it and tried it, so thanks a bunch Esther.

    I've been away for several day, blame laziness Or one of seven mortal sins, Sloth

    Hey Danko I'm glad you can be lazy and enjoy your time off studies, but I'm also glad to see you around!

    In Spanish it'd be El Sol Saliente Sounds pretty soothing in Serbian, with all the z/s sounds.

    It is pretty cool, isn't it? The font used in Secrets and Magic is 'Black Chancery" just in case anyone is interested.
