Moar bandwagon

If you'd like an impression from Rat-Maddy, drop me a comment. I was the one flogging spicy stewed apple and generally trailing along in Snap's wake. :)

Itchy demands words! Reciprocal will follow.

So, the way the Ferret side of WITS seems to work is like this:

Maddy blows things up. Doc patches things up. Itchy holds other traders up by their ankles and shakes 'em until all the shinies fall out of their pockets.

Nah, that's not being fair. I'm not so much with the trading myself, more with the finding things to trade, but he's a good trader. Eye on business and he'll only rip you off it you're stupid. What more can you ask?

Dear, you have a dire need to step out of the shadow you currently occupy and experience some new and different ones, as soon as possible. There was a lot of bright-eyed, bushy-tailedness about you all weekend, and in this day and age, attitudes like that will either get you stiffed, mugged or killed. Nothing remotely good can possibly come from being so optimistic.

I didn't see how you reacted to tragedy - it's always interesting to see how the bright ones fare when put under that kind of pressure. I have no malicious desire to see you subjected to it, but I'll be keeping a keen eye the next time someone close to you goes on the journey. Will you stand up to it, or will you fold and collapse?

Aww, but I was looking forward to writing yours. :) Maybe a foip-light version?

He's a good 'un, is Carleton. It's funny, he could almost be my twin. Except he's even better at some of the things I like to do. He's got his nose in everything.

One of these days I need to get him 'round to the Boat and Burrow and we'll take over the kitchen together, and it'll be a feast fit for kings, and then we'll get drunk together without Weasels and Foxes and whatnot to worry about. It'll be nice.

In the meantime, I can rely on him. If I need to know something, or lay my hands on something, or someone to watch my back, he'll help me out. I've no idea who his Ma and Dad are, but he's family.

I'm not sure you and I intereacted enough for an opinion, but if you have one, I'd love to hear it :D

This one's in charge. She stands back, watches, bides her time. Grace and danger. She's like snow on river ice: beautiful, and she'll kill you deader 'n dirt if you don't know how to treat her. That's Stoats for you, I guess.

(If Rani's got anything to say in return, fire away.)

Wow.
I love it! Thank you!

I don't know that I saw enough of you for an impression, but I'll have a go at something for you instead... Any requests?

Cheerful and friendly. It's good to have more rats around - I hear more news of Mistress River. She and Snap make quite a pair. That's a good thing, it's not safe to wander round alone.

(I'd like to know what you thought of Sal)

I'd heard of her before I ever met her. She's got pluck, that much is certain. Sharp, too. She makes good biscuits and her cloak's the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen. But I can't seem to keep my foot out of my mouth when I'm around her and she probably thinks I'm a right nitwit. Eh, I like her.

We're name twins (well sort of) so that makes her my Sister and thus Good People. She's nice and she makes nice food and I hope we see her again.

'So. Sister. You know that if anything comes of this I'll have to stab you repeatedly, don't you?'

'Mmmyep.' And I do believe her. I don't doubt her for a moment, but I tweak her whiskers anyway. If she was one of my real sisters there'd be any amount of hair-pulling and tickling to follow, but she just makes a face at me and calls me a meanie, and what she really says is 'I like you.' Else I wouldn't get away with it.

She's a good egg, my name twin. When I first met her I thought she wasn't quite right in the head. Now I see she tackles the world with confusion and joy and it mostly turns out all right for her and hers. There's worse things to have on your side than a big smile and vast amounts of Boom.

Will do Judah's impression in my thread, but would like to hear what Maddy thinks of him

Judah is a totem-singer of the first water. When we went out to fix the Molesey Stone, I tried to stay on the edge of the circle and stand guard. I couldn't. I mayn't have the ears of a Rabbit, but when he started working on the Stone I felt it take and I wanted to help. I would've stayed out there all night helping with the singing, if it had made any difference.

Judah's the kind of Elder I might want to be when I'm grown. He can read the dreams in the Smoke, and the Otters talk to him. Maybe it's his gentleness that calms them down--they're so wild, always on the edge of breaking loose, but there's nothing wild in him. Nothing settled either, mind you. In his mind he's always moving, shifting, a dance of change like light on water, like the bright colours he wears. And yet there's the dark slow current in him too, of sadness and of loss. He lost two friends this Fayre that I know of, and how many more that I don't?

I was looking forward to him staying with us to make us a totem. I'll keep an eye out for him, give him a hand through the winter if I can. And with luck, next Summer, he'll come to the Boat and Burrow and I can ask him many many questions.
