What’s that on the horizon? I suspect it might be… satire.


“So, this is a political convention, then?” said Pat as the three of us wandered through the halls. “I’ve never actually been to one. For which side, I wonder?”

“I’m not sure,” I admitted. “We actually don’t do much work in here.” Forbidden Tomes tend to avoid politicians and public figures. Too many humans watching. “I don’t even know if this is one of the main parties. Aren’t there more than two in this country, Jack?”

“Technically, yes,” he said with a shrug. “Practically? No. But this is one of the two major ones.” He then told us which one, but I honestly don’t remember it now. From my point of view, humans are easy to imitate and almost impossible to understand. I’m sure the event was all very important to them, of course. To us it was just one more weird human shindig.
