I love that the passive aggressive character is a llama! I also love the idea of pairing a straight-up troll with a more veiled troll. I'd be interested to see more about these characters. Perhaps some longer dialogue scenes between them? Eh writers? https://www.hitrecord.org/records/2814815

"Farah the Feathered Orangutan"
They say that evolution works through random mutations. On this, or some less Darwinian variation, Farah stewed, looking out over her home country from the heights of the highest bluff, the landscape's beauty lost on her melancholy eyes.
Her first feathers had appeared on the back sides of her strong triceps years ago, when she was but an adolescent ape. Carefully, she had combed her fur over them, hoping nobody would see.
By the time she'd reached adulthood, there wasn't enough fur to hide them all. Spanning from wrist to shoulder, all the way down to her lower back, the feathers sprouted bountifully, unmissably, mercilessly. Everyone who saw her gaped in puzzlement at best, recoiled in disgust more commonly.
She couldn't take it anymore.
"Fuck you guys," she thought to herself, and jumped. The bluff was high, the fall was long, the air rushing through her fur was actually pretty exhilarating. And as the ground approached, she panicked.
Out of pure fear, and not a single sliver of intention, she flailed her limbs about. Before long, her flailing became flapping. And of course, just in the nick of time, her flapping became flight.
Farah flew away.
Wrote this based on beverly13's "Orangutan's ahead" record as the first contribution to my new project called RANDOM REMIX (<a href="http://bit.ly/1Zk1wKd)" target="_blank">http://bit.ly/1Zk1wKd)</a>

So, as you might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, a while back, David Goyer and I made a producing deal with Warner Brothers to develop a movie adaptation of Neil Gaiman's SANDMAN. Neil himself came on as an executive producer, we hired the excellent screenwriter, Jack Thorne, and we started in on the ambitious task of adapting one of the most beloved and boundary-pushing titles in the world of comics. I was pleased with the progress we were making, even though we still had quite a ways to go.
Recently, as you also might know if you like to follow these sorts of things, the sorta "ownership" (for lack of a better term) of the Sandman material changed hands when Warner Brothers shifted the entire catalogue of Vertigo comics (an imprint of DC) to their subsidiary, New Line. And a few months ago, I came to realize that the folks at New Line and I just don't see eye to eye on what makes Sandman special, and what a film adaptation could/should be. So unfortunately, I decided to remove myself from the project. I wish nothing but the best for the team moving forward.
I'd like to thank all the great people I've had the opportunity to work with on this one. I've had a blast with and learned a ton from David and Jack. Niija Kuykendall, Greg Silverman, and everyone at Warner Brothers have been fantastic, as have Geoff Johns and everyone at DC. And it's been a particular privilege as well as a rocking good time getting to know Mr. Gaiman, whose generous insights and masterful work have certainly convinced me that the Lord of Dreams and the Prince of Stories are one and the same Endless pattern.
