In your defence I think the story has been headed in that direction for quite a while. Wink

Things have gone from bad to worse here since you retired to Little Forumshire, Odo - badder to worser in fact! Suspect

Have you noticed all the new interlopers, Orwell? Never would have happened under Odo's watch. Yanks and Fjordlandians. No wonder he retreated behind his own boundaries, which nobody can see but him.

That is actually the last one I read, which is probably why it stuck in my mind. Laughing 

Part 17 of the second one I think it was. (Had to look that up though.)

There was a time when Odo tried to stop interlopers at the border... Now there's no effort made at all. I mean - all these Fjordianlandians. The tip of the iceberg, I say.

I get the somewhat uneasy feeling that Orwell's pushing of the bar with The Firefox has led to a loosening of moral standards throughout the Creative Corner. pale

Well the shirt ripping does seem to be in his nature. Laughing 

I also thought his rather affectionate view of Eldos performance at Mrs Figgs (double squidding?Shocked ) was a bit foreshadowing of your last instalement.

The one that just starts

Spoiler:

though is the one that had me in stiches. Great sense of timing right there. Nod

Well, it's certainly gratuitous in parts. Laughing 

Though a very enjoyable read. Very Happy

Oh, I see I have missed a few posts here. In our defense it was Eldo who started with the shirt ripping, we simply haven't recoverd yet.

Oh. If that was directed at my post, don't worry Amarïe. I don't think I meant any of the that as a criticism really. Actually it's probably part of what makes you and Norcs stories such an enjoyable read. Smile 

And yes. I think Eldo, for all his blushings, will willingly admit that a lot of the themes you explore have their basis right there in his original stories. Nod

Honestly, the homoerotic stuff only started because I wanted to make a joke about the dual meaning of queer. Shrugging The Needlehole stories have evolved considerably since the beginning though, both in my writing and especially in the fanfics.

But now Ringo and I are stuck with a slash ship attached to our names because of my weakness for puns. Laughing

I don't think you should mind Eldo. Very Happy  It's great how certain stories seem to start living their own life after a while.

The fact that yours has grown to such proportions and diversity from the base your original basic story tells all the more of it's quality. Nod

Thanks Blue. Smile I am very pleased (and honored) at how the Needlehole stories have grown.  I took inspiration from other people when it started, too.  Most of the characters are (loosely) based on various forum personas, but I was also greatly influenced by the Wholesome Tales and their spinoff, Nuwest Who.  I made myself the main character because it seemed presumptuous at the time to spend too much time inside the head of someone else's character, but Ringo became the second main character because of the "wholesome" tale where Ringo and I are a pair of vagrant molesting trolls.

That's interesting to hear, Eldo. You've certainly created a world that has inspired a lot of people to start contributing with some writing. Nod 

I'm apparently being written fanfiction next. Which will be interesting. Though judging by the impression I seem to have made on Orwell, maybe I should have some trepidations. Laughing
