I start all mine with the help of Prancing Flame, the pegasus
Noah, stoking the fire, using the wood and charred paper I put in there earlier that never actually caught: What are the three things you have to have to make fire? Me: Water... Noah: ... Me: Not water. I don't know why I said that. Um, tinder. Noah: Yes, but a more generic term would be... Me: Wood. Noah: ...fuel. Me: Number two, oxygen. Noah: Yes, oxygen. And finally... Me: Electricity. The spark of Zeus. A lighting strike? Noah: Or, heat.
