Really.

But...

EDIT:

EDIT 2:

Done and posted! 1 ,497 words. And while it ain't perfect, it's not awful.

I'd be happy with Magic, Gods, Cyborgs at the moment. But since I've been groaning for ages to have a Dragon month, I'm wondering if it'll be Dragons? Haha, I almost hope not, I've got no more ideas for that!  ;D
