I'll be in this... This sounds exciting. I can't wait to get started creating... But first I have to wait for my laptop to come back from being fixed....

Of all things, Mallorn said she wanted to be a cat.
Indeed, a cat--but not only that. A Princess Cat, to be exact.
And for those of you who just let out a loud holler--
