Hey there! We're the mutant penguins! Our names are Rags to Riches and Ember, and we're totally insane. But that's beside the point.

EDIT: See that "homepage" button/link/thing? That's our livejournal. If you want to know why we haven't updated a certain fic, check there and there just might be an excuse. We'll be using it fairly frequently.

UPDATE: ON ROLLER COASTERS

So Ember and Rags to Riches went to a theme park today and rode all the roller coasters at least once (many of them twice; we're adrenaline junkies and proud of it). Then Ember came up with the strangest analogy for roller coasters. If you run screaming at the vaguest mention of... bedroom activities... run away now.

So Ember was like, "You know, great roller coasters are kinda like great sex (or so we presume, anyway). You see, it's really exhilarating, much better the second time, and you can't walk straight after. Plus on the really good times you're almost never quite sure which way is up and you're generally screaming." Strange but true. So now when you ride roller coasters, think of us. Think of hot sex. Just please not at the same time.

And then we took pictures of our feet. Just because. Deal with it.


Laterz!!

Ember and Rags to Riches-- the mutant penguins
