Ms. Keire can't come and out and blog today. She's gotten behind schedule, and we characters simply can't let it slide this time. Once was fine; the tornado was deliciously terrifying and really did throw a kink in things. I understand senseless destruction on a grand scale as well as the next villain. I even approve of it and, on rare occasions, indulge in it recreationally.
Ms. Keire will remain confined to quarters until I SAY SO. I, Asheroth, Dark Nephilim Guardian... WHAT!?! What do you mean, humans need food? And water, too? Fine, whatever. The woman had better write fast.
I'm assuming control of Ms. Keire's blog and have locked her in her writer's studio until further notice. Every moment that Ms. Keire continues to breathe air as a free woman is one moment more that I must wait to unleash more of me upon the world! Oh, and Caspia says normal people are waiting, too. (There, Caspia. Are you happy? Will you go away now? And what did you mean with that normal comment?) Ahem.
Some of the nicer characters wanted to be in charge of Ms. Keire's welfare while she puts the finishing touches on her second book. It was hard for me to hear their reasoning over the gales of evil laughter that accompanied their pathetic pleas. Eventually, they became sad and went away. Hopefully, we've seen the last of them.
In the meantime, I'll be hanging around Ms. Keire's blog, doing all the things a good guest host does: going through her mail, responding to questions, passing along her
pleas updates, rearranging the bookshelves, redecorating (can we say too much blue?), blaring the stereo. I'm excited. It will be like one big virtual evil sleepover.
Hopefully, Ms. Keire will finish before I forget to feed and water her.
In the meantime, please enjoy some Sympathy for the Devil, by The Rolling Stones:
Or, if you prefer something more uplifting, here's Jeff Buckley performing the Leonard Cohen classic "Hallelujah." (Happy now, Caspia? No, DO NOT wish me a Happy Easter. Oh, fine. I'll take the stupid chocolate bunny. But only if it's headless.)
