Ah, it's cool that it stays on the cutting floor, I just wanted to point it out and ask why Razz And your answer makes sense.

And, in the old murloc, Madoran glares at Horse good-naturedly. Same as making a face at him. Kind of...right?

Off to read the new re-write now. Grar.

You know, that chapter cut off still slays me. The suspense is unbearable even though I know whats coming.

Love the chapter. I think starting off a chapter with the Grimble experience really makes it stand out more than a chapter ending with it. Builds a steadier volume of excitement.

I only just figured out were I had seen the name Grimble ingame........The shipmaster in ratchet.

Yes i'm slow sometimes. Confused

Is that supposed to be an actual refference to something or is it just there because you wanted it to be?

And I agree with Farsider. I've realised that this read thru i've actually been reading the chapters more slowly, because I am not trying to find out what happenes. It means that I'm enjoying the reading more, and am understanding the story more.

Nah - I just wanted a goblin name, so I logged in and walked around Ratchet until I found one I liked. I did the same thing with Allyndil (there's an Allyndia female NE running around Darkshore) and Tyrande (a WoWwiki search for night-elf females - although that name now has more significance than it did when I put version 1.0 of her character in...)

I took Grimble's last name from the story that Caydiem wrote way back in the day to promote the Fishing Contest recurring event from like two months after WoW launched. Old-school!

Very Happy means I'm doing something right!

Yea, knowing what happens may ruin some stories (Airport Thrillers, anybody?) but for this one I could read it through like, 5 times and I'd probably still laugh at the funny parts and feel sad at the sad parts.

And I think the fishing contest was somewhere during the summer after release because I was Horde and past STV by then Very Happy.

Or maybe he's making more changes in the next chapter than usual.

.....or maybe he's just playing WoW a lot

Isn't it a bit more traditional to celebrate milestones after they are accomplished?
