Already commented on this via Facebook but I just wanted to say again how glad I am that you're continuing this story, Petty. The Norwegian phrases are always fun, and it's nice that Google Translate can actually handle them for once! Shocked

{{ The google translate works very weirdly, or fails to work very weirdly to be more accurate.
I discovered if I put in a phrase, translate it to Norwegian, then take that translated phrase and translate it back into English I get something often wildly different back from the original English wording.
So I now have to keep altering the original English phrasing and feeding the translation back through until it translates as something that makes sense (and more importantly retains the joke).
Its a surprisingly lengthy and annoying process Mad  }}

Terrible, terrible, terrible business, Petty... if one drops behind in your tales, one just can’t seem to find the time to ever catch up... Sad Sad Sad

{{I do it seems need to confess some difficulty with the concept of a short tale! Mad Not sure how long the original Puss in Boots is but I fear this may have already surpassed it, and with a lot more crabbit. Twisted Evil

I kind of view it like getting a chance to publish in a magazine, like the Strand, or Amazing Stories, or some such: episodic and with occasional cliff-hangers, and you can always binge read them all when its finished  Nod  }}

You know, Petty, you must let me know when you start something new... if I start at the beginning I can keep up, you see... Though, if I start at the beginning, I could read some every few days and pretend I am reading it Iike you adding to it every few days... that could work I guess...

{{whilst I tip my hat to you, if I had one, suppose I could lift my kilt to you instead scratch at your brave endeavour Orwell,I feel it only fair to say that you might want to put Gingerlocks and the Three McTyrants aside for later unless you've got the time, it being the first full length Forumshire novel!  (Also its available in a handy pdf format provided by Amarie, and as part of the Forumshire collection compiled by Eldo, A Green and Pleasant Land, and available in the link in my sig for almost as good as free! }}

((( Mad  Fine! Before the next chapter here's a recap- (and next chapter will be soon,barring LIFE ( Mad ) I should have time to finish it tomorrow!

Halfy in Boots a recap-

Paw McTyrant the sole owner of Forumshire's only, and largest buckie factory has passed away. On his death bed he broke with all tradition and gave his inheritance not to his eldest son , Petty, who he considers a drunken useless arse, but to Petty's psychotic, selfish, violent sister Pretty. Who was the apple of her fathers eye.

To Petty he gave only his pet mutant haggis, Halfwise, who it turns out is not a mutant haggis at all but a lot smarter than he had let on. And American.

Halfy convinces Petty he has a plan to get him the buckie factory back and remove Pretty- to this end he seeks to impress the Ambassador of Forumshire Amarie with a special, personal gift- a rare Fjordian dish from her small home village. How this will result in Petty gaining the factory, remains a mystery to Petty, but then most things do.

After various shenanigans involving Odo Banks, Mrs Figg and her pussy and cross-dressing, they take up with a ship of Vikings led by the very sweary Norc. They set sail for the frozen ice-lands of Northern Fjordainland in pursuit of an ice troll, with the aim of removing a crucial and rare ingredient from it, one of its testicles. Its rarity being due to how reluctant trolls are to give them up.

Upon arriving in Fjordianland they recruit Ringo, a local troll hunter, as their guide, and meet two members of the Forumshire Press that Halfy had arranged to be there for unknown purposes.
This haphazard band of ball of fur, drunk Scotshobbit, Viking, press and Ringo set off into the heart of Fjordianland in search of an ice troll which Petty must part from its testicles. Or at least, one of them!

And that's your recap- though its better with all the jokes still in!! Mad }}

I just glanced back over some of the previous pages of this thread as a result of this exchange and I notice it's been exactly one year since Halfwise in Boots began! Shocked I knew it had been close, but time certainly flies. Congrats to Petty for keeping it alive and moving forward, at whatever pace! cheers

{{{LIADW isn't that far off from being a year old too, but it's pretty much dead and buried, so silent }}}

Also, if anyone other than me (and maybe Petty?) used A Green and Pleasant Land as a reference work I would be super-tickled (just ignore the instances of my deadname in it). Very Happy

{{ Embarassed I glanced down at my sig when I wrote that Eldy to check I had the title correct and it still says Eldorion of course and my buckied brain simply wrote what it say without auto-correct on! My apologies-still shaking about ten years of habit! }}

No worries, but thank you. :hug: I was largely thinking of the PDF which is full of instances of my former username and, in a few places, legal name (starting with the first two pages Laughing). I'd never go back and edit the stories themselves, but even just changing instances of my name in the editorial comments and titles/bylines would be a pain given how huge the document is. I feel a little weird rereading it now, but still, I put a lot of work into it and it's always nice to know when I'm not the only person to see something I did. Razz

You know, there has been a hell of a lot of ‘creativism’ going on here over the years... catching up will be nigh on impossible... what with the pots needing pottering and so forth... Maybe, I’ll stick to dabbling and just reading the newer stuff and just going with the flow... luckily, it’s like I know all these characters and it’s a bit like watching Neighbours or Coronation Street... except with kilts or frocks... if, indeed, they are different things... Cool
