Fairies and Fishes

Originally published at ankewehner.de. You can comment here or there.

Nico watched the fairies dance in the reeds. "Are they laying eggs?"

"Yes. They stick them to the leaves. Another pest, on top of gnats."

"Can you use the eggs as fishing bait?"

"Not bait as such." Her host looked around furtively. No-one was near. "When I was small we'd drop the eggs in the water for the fish to eat. Made them act like they were drunk. Swim in circles, hit their heads on things... It made catching them with your hands easier. We stopped it after a big pike bit my sister. Don't tell the children, please."

Arting?

Character Art Exchange has spawned a little challenge: Draw your own characters. Some of us notices our references were getting a tad old, since we keep drawing other people's characters more than our own, so I made a forum thread and sent out invitations...
If anybody thinks chatting with creative folks might be fun, try dropping into the IRC chatroom #scribblers on server StarChat - there's more info here.

(The next Sketch Fest starts in pretty much exactly two weeks.)
