And Then... (day 4)

Sunday, day four.

I had nothing on first session, and since I didn't have any more of my sessions to run I didn't have to be there all the time (or at least, I didn't feel like I had to be there) so I slept in and didn't get to the con site until just before Session K finished.

I didn't have anything on during Session L either, but I used that time to sort out prizes and the admin side of things. Theoretically Stephen's game was meant to run in Session M (last session of the con) but by this stage we only had 6 players, and a couple of maybes, so it didn't happen.

Prize giving was quick and easy so then it was off to the after con venue - Cafe Crifi in the Richmond Gardens Shopping centre.

Good food, great people and really good drinks. I almost had one (a Toblerone!) but the only thing that stopped me was that I was going to be going home via the train again, so I didn't want to have anything to drink, just in case (yes, me being overly paranoid again.)

During the post-con get-together I decided that I need to run an Addams Family freeform (I've already worked out the premise), I joined Nestus and a few others with organising a Sluggy Freelance Freeform for next year, and worked out I will probably also be running Hand of Duty next year, a fantasy freeform, plus most likely a Pirates Toon Freeform to fit in with the theme (which may or may not include Ninja's).

After doing some asking around, I work out that the best way to get to the train station would be to take a taxi, so I call a taxi and wait for it to arrive. And wait, and wait, and wait, and wait...

After deciding that unless the train is running a bare minimum of 15 minutes late I have missed the last train, the taxi arrives, and I tell him that he's not needed anymore.

Thankfully Mik, being the kind and thoughtful person that he is, offered me a lift out to Cheltenham so I wouldn't have to worry about a huge taxi fare (either that, or he just wanted to make sure he got rid of me).

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
