"Your motives don't concern me Popwhistle." said McEdifice scornfully, then gesturing to a nearby office worker he said "Take this saboteur to HR. Your paper dampening days are over."

Case solved, McEdifice walked back to the copier. Waiting for him was Ms. Qzrrzxxzq.

"Case solved, Ms. Qzrrzxxzq." explained McEdifice, "It was Popwhistle all along. I caught him in the act."

"Thank goodness! So it was Popwhistle who stole the paper! Did he reveal where he hid this recent theft?" asked Ms. Qzrrzxxzq.

McEdifice stared in surprise at the space next to the copier. Aside from a few damp rectangular patches there was no sign at all of any paper. The lights on each paper tray were glowing a bafeul red indicating each one was empty.

There was no paper.

It was all gone.

And McEdifice knew that the one indisputably guilty saboteur had not stolen it.

"Nooooooo!!!!!!" cried McEdifice.

Chapter Eleven I Think

[Scene – Felapton Towers. A phone is ringing]

[CF – for it is he] Hello, Felapton Towers, how may I assist you?

[CF] One: that is not my name. Two: you know this is me Timothy. Three: what do you want?

[Tim] I'm just checking you got that new chapter cover finished. I want the next chapter out ASAP!

[CF] It is, though I say so mysel

thropology observation protocols. Frankly, I think this is both empowering and indeed FEMINIST of me and Straw Puppy. Her sexiness is our way of commentating on the expectations the modern workplace puts on women to appear alluring.

[Susan] Hmmm, so answer me this then. If she now has changed into combat gear and is about to go on a mission into a dark stairwell, how come she still has to be sexy?

[Tim] Genre conventions!

[Susan] Your just grasping at straws.

[Tim] No, that was my idea. Straw Puppy wanted to say "It's empowering."

[Susan] Well here is how I think the next bit should go:

And by 'sexy' we mean she was dressed in a way that was functional and practical – a combination that many people who might be attracted to a woman of her species would indeed find sexy because it suggested somebody who wasn't going to let conformity to expectations get in the way of dressing appropriately for a combat situation.
