Sometimes, I wonder if I didn't fall asleep and dream my life. If you'd could hear of some of the things we came across in day to day life. Take a conversation that happened recently, when I was contacting my oppo in Chicago, Harry Dresden.

There we were, chatting about tactics, and resources, as we occasionally remember to do, and I made a comment about how he sounds, well, fuzzy.

He muttered something I didn't catch, so I asked him to repeat it.

"Broke my nose," he said. Okay, really, for Harry, that's nothing new there.

"On what?" I asked. I had to, honestly. I heard a faint mumble as Harry said something. "Repeat that?" I asked, not believing what I'd heard.

"I had a run in with the three Billy Goats Gruff," he said, annoyed.

Well, I couldn't help it. I laughed. Loudly.

"Very amusing, Galahad," was the comment that came back to me, which only made me laugh even more. Harry waited till I'd finished laughing.

"Next time we run into unicorns, I'm using you as bait," he said, definitely annoyed this time.

Although he couldn't see me, I smirked. "Still waiting for the right woman. Morals, man, morals." Of course, if he found out who I thought the right woman was, he'd warn me off again... so I had no intention of telling him. "Anyway, don't the Goats do work for Summer? I thought you got on okay with Summer? They certainly owe you a favor." And being owed a favor by Titania? That's a good thing.

Oh yeah, did I mention my life is a fairy tale? Titania is real, and one of the six Queens of Faerie.

Harry snorted - God knows how with a broken nose. "She didn't like what I stuck my nose into," he said, which sent me off into fits of laughter again. I knew he'd get his own back, but for now, I was enjoying it. Who could blame me?

"Dammit, and I thought we had problems with a troll appearing in Los Angeles," was my only response.
