It was the worst of times, and also, as they say, a quite good one, too. We spoke on the phone for hours. On ILK island, it was late at night, the air was heavy and there was no chocolate because there was no sweet taste. We picked through and over our own kind. We marked some of them separate, though we loved them all.
We put them on an altar.
We raised them up.
We raised them up to BEST OF THE NET 2012.
These are our nominations– it was fun and horrible to look back at our four excellent issues. C&C are proud, proud and ruthless parents.
