The "hell" was made with a combo of a sunset and pile of red roses.

Oh, I also got an illustration of Gavin & Hayley to put in my Squire Hayseed book. Then I colored it.

I entered Variel in the character battle too as they were asking for more. I have like three or four in them now.

I whipped up an easy way to put a book cover on a cup of coffee, then I added a quote.

And I'm about 20% through H9. Enkatta seems to have met an old teacher who she doesn't like.

5k today. Despite the fun and frolicking, everything's a little tense... Sikar Prime is on a knife-edge!

^That is gorgeous, Blab! :D

Rewritten the evacuation bit tonight, as it felt off to me. Now, there's simply an ominous warning of worse to come at the end of that chapter.
