See! See! 17 year old Attalus had a right to worry.
Seriously, Woody, that is a great story. Thanks for sharing.
Heh, I did a girl in armor in college (with my new Staedtler pen and Pelikan ink that I found on sale in the student book store). I liked it so well that I found a frame that fit it and hung it up in my apartment. The first girl who saw it (the drawn woman was kneeling in surrender with her hands up) said "She looks like she is offering herself." I honestly didn't think of it that way, being in a Chicks in Chainmail period, but I saw what she meant and took it down. It got lost when I moved to Dallas to go to medical school. I wish I still had it.
