Re: On the verge of casting "Kelpie" aside like a tattered old garment
Oh Steve, I already feel enough like Sybil without making matters worse by taking on her name!
(After steeping myself for all these years in the fantasy genre, I naturally hold a firm belief in the magical power of names.)
Not that it wouldn't be an appropriate name in its way, since I used to be engaged in the sibylline trade. In fact ... but no, that's another topic -- and not a bad idea for a thread, all things considered.
