Happy International Sourcery Day. Yes, I am spelling "Sourcery" correctly in this context. Yes, I made up the holiday. Yes, it will be the only such holiday this century. Yes, it relates to Terry Pratchett's Discworld novels. Yes, there is a sort of logic in the designation. If you like the books, you'll figure it out.

Still Plugging the Plug of the Week: on Thursday, August 7 (i.e., yesterday), I did a guest article on graphic novels for
Vulpes Libris, aliterary blog whose contributors review books, interview authors, and write small essays on literature-related themes. It is entirely possible that you will recognise the style of the illustration that accompanies my piece. You can see a less teeny version of this illustration here.

Panel 1: Somewhere in Davies College, Marie and Casey walk along together.

Casey: You know, Weird Beard wasn't that bad.

Marie: Except that he was creepy.

Panel 2:

Casey: Bleachy was far worse.

Marie: No, she--

Panel 3: Jackie appears out of nowhere and seizes Casey violently by the tie.

Jackie: Don't mention Bleachy! Don't ever mention Bleachy! She must not be named lest she be conjured from a vast pit of EVIL DARKNESS!

Panel 4:

Casey: ......And how did you feel about Weird Beard?

Jackie [shrugs]: He was creepy.

Marie [arms crossed]: Okay, point taken.

Alt-Text: In a way, though, "Bleachy was worse" is a completely unfair argument. Bleachy is ALWAYS going to have been worse.
