The ice cubes clinked together in the Lalique crystal glass, the ambrosial scotch rippling and lightening as the chilled water mixed in. She brought it up to her snout and sipped delicately, savoring the smoky, peaty flavor of the 25-year single malt. The bite of the overproof and following warmth in her belly eased some of the tension in her shoulders.
‘I can’t say,’ the foreman had said. ‘You’d better get down here.’
As always a thousand thanks for Writeanon for the story! Keep reading under the cut for more, or go check it out on AO3!
Redesigned evolutions of Spoink, inspired by @bogleech‘s review. I wanted the evolutions to continue on the “springs instead of legs” path. And the depictions I found of “pearls before swine”, aside from the newspaper comic, depicted the pigs with pearl necklaces.
Spoink and co’s psychic energy keep the Clamperl pearls alive. The first one keeps getting bigger and eventually ‘wakes up’.
Idk what the evolutions would be called but they’d be better names than Grumpig.
Filled the tank completely up again. It was on half filled mode the last couple of weeks. The plants look more bad than nice and I need to get some new ones again :( need money ha.
The small tank seems fine. Moss is growing good (everything else not lol) and the shrimp seem okay too. They stopped breeding because of the Panacur I guess. I hope the Nerite snails will survive the medication. :( worried.
Only cell phone pictures, sorry. Maybe I’ll take out the good can again when the tanks look better but now it’s just pearls for swine (dunno if I can say than in English haha)
How often do you post or update pearl before swine
I update as often as I can, but honestly there’s no set schedule and I can’t promise that it will finish at all. I started it on a whim, thinking it would be ten pages only. However it looks like at the moment it will be closer to 35+
I’m committed to the story but I’m very busy at work at the moment and can’t promise constant updates. Mmmmmaybe the best thing to do would be to set low expectations and say that it will update roughly… Every two to three weeks? I post four pages at a time, and that won’t change.
Ship that pisses you off: I mean, I don’t think anyone here will be shocked to hear me say Harvey/Donna? lol. that’s the biggest one that comes to mind - I’m usually pretty chill about ships I don’t ship, but god, that one. kill it with fire.
the sheer volume of Kylo Ren or Hux pairing fics on ao3 annoys the shit out of me because racism (plus it’s like…
insult to injury meets pearls before swine, bc the ot3 is strong in that fandom.
