  • from Ben Paddon:

    Yesterday evening, we were about to head out to see The Golden Compass. Then I realised, “Bugger, I haven’t written a ficlet yet!”

    Knowing that it would be tomorrow by the time I got back, I decided to write something exceptionally brief. This is it. It’s by no means grand but it does the trick… sort of a Ficlet-let.
