The Bitter Triumph of Hamtaro

By Holly Lisle

I got a bit over 1500 words today, but did not quite make it to the epic battle — though Thor, Loki, and most of the Sentinels are in the back of Thor’s pick-up truck (Thor’s chariot and goats, Tanngr�snir and Tanngnj�str, in disguise) and on the way to head off the keth. Unfortunately, they’re traveling to that damned Hamtaro theme song* running in the back of my head, stuck in an awful loop, which proved capable of driving out even the wonderful Lord of the Rings score. Vile, evil music — I hope the composer of it is tied down and force to listen to the foul monster he has wrought until his eyeballs bleed.
