I figured out how to check my story stats: 1616 hits! On Animal alone!!!!!! I think I died; having people who actually, ya know, enjoy the stuff I write is ... bloody brilliant, to be stereo-typically British for a sec.
The Markings, I thought I might explain, look kinda like, er, tribal meets rococo. Spiky, sure, but really over-emphasized, with loads of curly bits and swirly bits. Ya know, *makes hand gestures that look vaguely perverted*, er, *trails off*, you guys get the picture, right? Hope so ... 'cause, ya know, that's all your getting.
