He IS the easiest to draw--he's got those 'classic' sideburns you see
on a LOT of
cartoon characters, especially H-B.

Charon and Dathena. You'll get used to it. The thing is I couldn't
figure out what to do with Chance, to make his character more
interesting, and
I think gargoyles are just AWESOME. I actually took me a while to get
the idea
to do it to Felina too. I can understand if it's pretty hard to
visualize it, so I've
going to work on getting access to a scanner to get my drawings up.
BTW, I know
this isn't in the story because I didn't have time to change it
before I turned
it in, but Felina is a gray gargoyle at night. I just thought that
worked better.

Of course. Sauraman the Pastmaster is dead--didn't you know that? In
terms, death isn't the end of living. You can get along just fine in
the right position.
After his death, Sauraman the White was picked up by the Isatari and

Actually, Abi and Jake just kind of "like each other" until well into
sequel. Same with Felina and Chance. One thing all writers should
watch out
for: NO SEX. Don't stick it in. At least not until you've built up
the relationship
over several stories and several hundred kilobytes. An unamed SK
author . . . all right it was B-KO . . . didn't follow these
restrictions and . . .
well . . .

If you want to right a WD/SK crossover go ahead, I'm not Richard
but I'm not quite sure how you're going to mix two kat pilots with a
of rabbits.
  As as far as using Lopine and Lopineneans goes, I'm going to have
to say
no. There's more to Lopine in the stories that I've built it up to
than you can
ever imagine. I am willing, if you'd really like to learn, to e-mail
and tell you all kinds of neat info and background. If you REALLY
want it in
your stories, however, then I'm going to have to clear and revise
everything you
write. Wanna discuss it?
