Today, Anna chewed me out for various faults, both perceived and real.
"What's been the matter with you?" she demanded. "You haven't posted anything new these past few months!"
"I'm sorry, Anna!" I begged from a kowtow position that I copied from Tori. "I've been really busy!" Then I dared protest: "But doesn't the Beyond The Bright Light of the Rising Sun count?"
"No, because while Ryo appears there, Nina and I didn't! When are you updating Special Service?"
"Um, I'm going to work on that after I finish this sort-of-secret project!" I promised.
"We have heard those exact same words from you countless times," Nina whispered into my ear in a tone of voice perfect for a Borg Queen, making me shiver with dread. "They are all broken now..."
And then, if I had not been in enough trouble...
The hair-raising crackle of a couple of million volts of electricity announced the arrival of Mikoto Misaka. "Oi!" she exclaimed. "Start writing about my spar with Saten-san already!"
"Hey," Yaya 'Mocha' dela Cruz chirruped as she barged into my personal space. "We Filipinas got to stick together, right? We gotta show Cyan and Tiiu how great the Philippines is, right?"
Behind her, the flustered Tori Perez fidgeted. "Instead of Japan, can't the SSBLA go on tour in Malaysia instead? They say it's truly Asia there..."
"No way!" Ynes Felipa insisted as she trapped me between her and Mocha. "We should go to Mexico so I can box Izil!"
"Focus!" Anna ordered.
"Or else," Nina purred.
And that's when I woke up from my nightmare.
I really got to stop power-napping in front of my PC >_<
