From the front

Greetings, bloggers. Marcus Valerius Laevinus here, writing on behalf of my - er - benevolent author, Kirsten. She wishes it to be known that she's currently on temporary transfer to Vindolanda again. (Jupiter Greatest, you'd think soldiers' barracks were actually interesting, the way she goes on about them!) She's staying the night with a friend near Segedunum, then she'll be heading for her posting in the morning. So she'll be away for a week or so, and you can expect a full report when she returns.

Tch. All right for some, isn't it? Bloody writers. They do nothing at all for ages, occasionally decide to make a living hell for innocent folks like myself just because they can (apparently it's called "conflict" and "plot development"), then they up and grant themselves leave whenever they bloody well feel like it. A bit like tribunes, when you think about it.

She also said something about doing what I was told while she was away, or she'd do something nasty, like "slashing" me with Cathal. I don't know what that means, but I'll wager my last pair of woolly socks it's not pretty.

Valete.

Hi Marcus, you better don't follow orders because I want to read Marcus/Cathal slash. :)

Another writer here. I think you and some of my characters could compare notes.
