FIRST!

Hey, I know that voice! Another great installment. I'd follow Xerxes anywhere...

Marshall... the owner of the store where I buy business clothes cheap.

I need to marshal my energy to take my morning walk in all of this heat and humidity. Now that's a tough war to wage.

mireille said...

as TLP would say: that Xerxes Um, am I the only one willing to admit I still don't completely follow the story line? Um, that translate: I don't understand almost all of it. Sure do admire the writing, though. It's brocade tapestry, woven tight. xoxo

G said...

No Mirielle, every time I think I have something straight, I'm confused again.

But it is epic and well written and I am certain it will all tie nicely together in the end.

MARSHALL, v. t. To insist on a march, on answering the summons of the God of War. One reason why the Army doesn't serve Marmite to its troops.

Does the Persian army really have toy soldiers?

actonbell said...

Bravo! It's nice to hear your voice again:)

I'm with Goldnib--I need to marshall some energy, too. And I'm not on top of the plot, either,but it sure is fun to follow.

Doug - I couldn't have stumbled my tongue over those big letter names any better. (yes, crows do have tongues, just no teeth).

quilly said...

Marshall wasn't Mars the god of war? And why does he have a Hall instead of a temple? I am so confused.

Doug said...

Sis, today you got out in front of xerxes.

Nessa, did you try stuffing ice cubes in a hat? That works for me.

Mireille, I wondered if it was confusing. I'll work on it.

G, soitenly.

Amoeba, absolutely. That's how they fought then.

Actonbell, just be thankful I deleted the dance scenes.

Terry, you'll get your chance.

Quilly Mars' temple is the entire earth, just below the topsoil.

goldennib said...

Doug: Won't I get brain freeze?

TLP said...

Plot? I must re-read these stories!

Great reading. Again.

Logophile said...

Good grief, its almost 6 am, where are you??
:p

Doug said...

Nessa, not if you wear it on your hand.

TLP, I have heard of the plot. I prefer ancient monsters, though, and tyrants.

Logo, you must have something good on your site.

Logophile said...

Nope, I just happen to be awake, free of distraction, and in a comparatively good mood for a Monday. Sounded like a good time to get an early start on the definition of the day.

I think so long as they have SOMEBODY to conquer, the army will be happy!
