Sorry it took me so long to get back to this. I got distracted, then couldn't find the post for a bit!

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] naamah_darling picked 7 of my interests for me to write about. If you want to play along, comment; I'll pick 7 of your interests for you to write about, you post with these instructions in your LJ to keep spreading the fun.

So: Transdimensional gates, comics, knowledge, binding, Dr. Who, polyamory, and, because it's too funny, and lj_admins_please_pay_more_attention_to_what_you_do..

Rules:
1. Grab the nearest book. (Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.)
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog along with these instructions.


Writers are liars, my dear. Surely you have realised that by now?

PULL BACK AGAIN FOR A LONG SHOT. MADOC IS PUTTING A COAT AROUND CALLIOPE'S SHOULDERS. ERASMUS HAS TURNED HIS BACK ON BOTH OF THEM, IS WALKING TOWARDS US.

I stretched a little, and included an extra sentence. This is from Neil Gaiman's The Sandman: Dream Country graphic novel. The main Sandman story arc was broken into different chapters, and two of those chapters were collections of short stories that were very loosely or not at all related to the main story. Dream Country was one of those two collections. I had to manually count the pages, as the original page count for the comics was preserved; this quote is actually from an additional section that was added to the novel. After the comics section is a reproduction of the script Neil wrote for the first comic in Dream Country, 'Calliope.'

I love the Sandman, and encourage anyone who has not picked it up to give it a try...
