Had a long, very busy, day, so while I used to occasionally do this as part of the Saturday Smiles, it can now be one of my ‘in case of emergency, break glass‘ posts, instead of doing another set of ‘fiction from the vaults.

Have returned from Thought Bubble comic con, and find it hugely amusing that I had a night filled with nightmares.

‘Amused’ because almost uniquely, the nightmares ‘made sense’; they were about missing trains and having to make a speech in front of comics people and being crushed by shelves of books. So, yeah, they a) made sense, and b) were classic nightmare tropes… which are both very very unusual for me.
