While the director's away, the fans come out to play ... or so I discovered when I caught up on Twitter this week after a month travelling Canada and the USA.
It all started when Dreams of Spanking member John Codders sent Ms Vixxxen a fan tweet with the idiosyncratic wording "amazing Ms Vixxxen - You are". Vincent Brennan couldn't let this opportunity for some teasing pass by, and replied "Completely agree, but now I've got an image in my head of Yoda watching spanking films."
Said Codders: Yeah I reckon Yoda likes a bit of a spanking too - you know from the Dark One."
And thus the first fanart was born.
Perhaps Ms Vixxxen should have known better than to 'fan' the flames.
At that point I think he just got a bit carried away.
But all that was simply the appetiser, the prelude to the grand finale - the fanart that made it all worthwhile.
Isn't that fantastic?
We have Zoe Montana gearing up while Thomas gives his caning arm a (no doubt well earned) rest. I'm bending over centre stage while stage hands bustle around me, Nimue is in cornertime and Ms Vixxxen holds position - both after receiving similar treatment, no doubt. Adele is in the director's chair (hell, I would watch that show!) and Michael and Vincent chat in the front row.
And... is that Lola and Molly waiting to be called, and suddenly, miraculously, both nearly the same height?
