The Rat's Nest [Techrat][Tag anyone who would know about Techrat]  
Things had been... quiet. Normally, Techrat wasn't the kind to be upset by peace and quiet in his lair, but (loathe as he was to admit it), it had been way too long since Eric Raymond or his pet harpies had come stomping about, interrupting his work to demand some shiny new gewgaw so they could upstage Jem and the Holograms.

Techrat didn't like Eric Raymond, and he hated Pizzazz and her cronies, but Raymond always paid him on time, and paid him well for his time and efforts. So, to keep his own projects financed, it was important that Eric Raymond kept coming to him.

Quietly, Techrat gathered up the piles of discarded fast food wrappers, dropping them in a corner with the rest of his garbage as he chewed over his thoughts, not liking at all where they might be leading.
