Well, this is it. The last VW post for another year. What with working for a living and trying to fit in everything else that a normal week throws at you, we’ve been squeezing in extra writing, so it’s been a really hectic few days.

Smythe’s experience with cloaking technology was somewhat limited. He struggled with the balance between chemical reactions, static electricity and crystalline formations; not usually getting the result he desired, or expected.

Fortesque was not impressed; he believed that chemistry, physics, and magic should be kept separate.
“For Heaven’s sake, Sam! Why can’t you stick to what you know?”
“Engineering is such a slow and boring subject. With this I can get instant results. Look!” He waved his apparently empty sleeve.
