If I had a pie for every strip of Bacon Strips (by Gillespie), I would have 200 pies on Wednesday!
And if I had a dollar for every page of HiNaTa_fan_13's Hall of Randomness I would have 200 dollars today!
If there were as many pie thieves as there are pages of Abt_Nihil's A.D. 1997, then the 150 pie thieves would each steal 1.333~ pies!
And if there were as many dollar thieves as there are pages of Janen's Per Ardua, then the 125 thieves would each steal $1.60!
And if each pie thief re-sold their 1.333~ pies for $1 then the dollar thieves could buy all of them, and still have $50 left over for ice cream! I think!
Lastly, PeiPei's The Faction has reached 600 story pages and I think that means it wins this newspost because I can't think of any more math for it. Also, the story will be ending soon. :[
As promised, a new interview! This time around, it's carolyn interviews Kristen Gudsnuk of The Optimist and Misfit Assassins - stay tuned later this week for the return interview too!
2. What inspired you to write “The Optimist”?
I was hanging out with my grandfather, and he was going on and on (and on) about Lithuania, and he told me about how in the 80s, one of my Lithuanian cousins wanted to be a fashion designer. So he sent her a clipping from the Style section of the New York Times, and he didn't hear back from them for years, until he got a terse letter that said something to the effect of ‘Please don’t send us such things anymore.' I hadn't realized that Lithuania had been so censored (a.k.a. INTERESTING!) and it sparked an idea for a setting.
Also, I was taking a creative writing class, so I had to come up with a story. After I was done writing it, I felt like continuing with it, and missed DD sorely, so…!
