Heard the news? Archivists’ Toolkit and Archon are hooking up joining forces!┬áDo add your favorite AT/Archon slash scenarios in the comments below.

(Thanks to @sibylschaefer for finding me a large version of the AT logo to work with, and a big “Thanks, sort of” to everyone on Twitter who wrote about AT/Archon–I hold you responsible for the corruption of this otherwise wholesome and upstanding webcomic.)

With love and metadata,

Yeah, I should probably add a link to Know Your Meme to the sidebar–around these posts, it’s at least as useful as the SAA glossary.

Hope all of you SAA09-ers are having fun! Choice quotes can be emailed or DMed here for some DnD-style fun. (Muahaha…)
