The best part was that it referred to a Nerf rocket launcher thingy, and it actually did end up getting "Fairy Blaster 9000" written on it!

I was laughing so hard I had to move my coffee right off the desk just to be safe! I love MND, and you guys sound like you were having so much fun -- wish I could have seen it.

If forced to choose, I think this was my favorite:

Believe me, King of Shadows, you should slap me.

It was... a ride. But yes, a fun one. If the video turns out any good, I'll send you a copy. (I'll warn you, so your agent doesn't get unnecessarily confused.)

If forced to choose, I think this was my favorite:

Believe me, King of Shadows, you should slap me.


Puck was... well-cast. I have no idea how she's made it out of her teens alive.
