those dang fireflies by machine-guts those dang fireflies by machine-guts
Why the fireflies came to bother him, he'll never know. Perhaps they were attracted to the brilliant fuchsia-violet orbs that incessantly materialized around him whenever he conjured the rainstorm. But this time, he didn't even want it to rain. It just happened. And because he hated fireflies with such stubborn contempt... he was grumpy.

I wanted to paint a kitty after reading the manga "My Cat Loki" by Bettina Kurkoski. It just came out over here this month. Already addicted!

Yes, he's my original character. You won't find this story in the manga. :P No, you can't have him. Mine! *whisks him up in her arms*
