(In Mingo's White Raven Inn)--"I'm confused....." Lilith said. --"I liked your other name better, Miss Confused," TimeLord quickly slipped in a comment of the style common to this wonderfully written, intriguing and much liked (even by lurkers hint hint) story. --"You go too far, author," Frida objected. "Fishing for likez iz not couth." --"yes," Bov agreed. "Let us have some cuthiosity, which leads me to the question: what about Shania (who invented the term cuthiosity), Jeb and the rest?" --"Hush you lot!" Mingo commanded gently. "Lilith has a question. Go ahead Lilith." --The young Lilith cast her eyes sideways at her detractors drawing up one side of her mouth in a disapproving half grimace. "Yessss, question. Was this the same Red Hat Gnome, RockSide, who fought against the heroes in the Battle of the Tunnels for the Gold Acorns?" --"Heroes? Clowns? Poets? Sailers? It is hard to pin down what this group was," Father Sarducci said, blowing smokerings with his cigarette smoke (where ever did he keep getting cigarettes?). --"Yes," Mingo said in answer to Lilith's question. --"I"m glad we aren't exactly PC in Novia," System Lord Elgarion said. "You can even smoke indoors here, doesn't bother anyone!" --.....somewhere a Lurker coughed.
