Okay, not so much a smackdown as a friendly competition between two Odd Shots: Nalini and me. It will start with tea, where Nalini and I will discuss the merits of Oolong vs. Earl Grey. Then we’ll eat biscuits. And then we will head into the shark pit, AND BATTLE FOR GUTS AND GLORY!
So, DABWAHA isn’t over. And because the organizers are PURE EVIL, they put all of us in the same bracket against each other. Late tonight and tomorrow morning, it’s the last poll that includes two Odd Shot books: Archangel’s Kiss vs The Iron Duke.
You see what I mean? Evil.
Now, there has been some trash talking going on. Books set on fire. Accusations of secret cross-dressing. The shocking revelation that one of our group is a Belieber. (Then we ended up writing a crazy scene on Twitter about a Billionaire’s Psychotic Virgin Mistress. Don’t ask me how these things happen.) But someone — *ahem, NALINI* — hasn’t followed through on one of her threats. Sure, she said that the Iron Duke wears dresses, but THEN she threatened to make it pink.
I haven’t seen Rhys running around in any pink dresses, have you?
So, my friends, here’s my vow: I’ll do it. If The Iron Duke wins, you will open up Odd Shots next Thursday and see Rhys in glorious pink. Maybe rose, or maybe blush. But definitely pinkish.
(Also, *cough cough* I have more bribes coming tonight through my bribe and voting reminder service. Yummy, yummy bribes. And books! I’ll give you a way to vote The Iron Duke and support Nalini at the same time!)
SHAMELESS DORKPOWER FTW!
