Countess Bird and Countess Fish
They married noble men

Had their want and had their wish
Then wished for it again

Countess Fish and Countess Bird
Their grooms had no pleasure

No love in their bosoms stirred
Save for that of treasure


"Sister," wept the Countess Fish,
"I've had my fill of sea!"

"Sister," wept the Countess Bird,
"That is quite plain to see!"

"Sister," wept the Countess Bird,
"I'm tired of the sky!"

"Sister," wept the Countess Fish,
"If only they would die!"


Countess Fish and Countess Bird
Their birthday had come 'round

All within the kingdom heard
And brought them gifts abound

Countess Bird and Countess Fish
They cooked a tasty thing

Joyously they served a dish
Of blackened fin and wing

I liked this, and the story that went along with it. The other site isn't letting me comment for some reason. :)

I click "Post" and it sends me to a blank page (full white, nothing on it). I just noticed I haven't tried while logged in, though. Let me see if that helps.

EDIT: Still nothing. Might be a browser issue; I'm no good at picking out the causes of stuff like this. I'll try it on another computer tomorrow and see if I can get it to work.

Aughleg. What URL does it send you to, if you don't mind! :C

Yeah, what makes no sense is that it's still the same URL (http://slimebeast.com/forum/slimy-stories/tea-and-necromancy/?action=post;num_replies=1) after the screen blanks. It might be trying to reload the page because I entered a field wrong or something, but it just isn't getting there. I thought it was an issue with my transcribing of the Captcha before I logged in, but it still isn't working now that the Captcha's gone.

Hmm. Okay, now it works as long as I click "Preview" first... this is completely nonsensical.

Any change of browser/operating system since the last time you posted?

THIS IS NOW OFFICIALLY TECH SUPPORT BOARD. :D

I updated to the newest version of Firefox a couple weeks ago, but as far as I can tell it's just the old version with a leaner interface. I didn't get the error in Internet Explorer just now, so apparently the site just hates Firefox. :p

I would tell you that me deleting my first post instead of the second was some kind of bug as well, but I'm pretty that was just me screwing up.
