Kings of Spun, the fourth...

Hail Spunlings! Although the weather outside is foul this week finds Uncle Spun in fine form, buoyed up in his vital spirits by the majesty and graciousness of this week's Spun Kings. Yes, Uncle Spun is thrilled to report that this week's coronations were most convivial!

EU Spunland was busy and bustling, and special spun congratulations must be showered upon GlassReaver, our Fourth Spun King of the EU, for her perseverance at seeing off so many contenders for the Spun Crown (incidentally I am reliably  informed that GlassReaver is already the proud holder of a Certificate of Spun). Things were a little quieter across the  Great Pond, but lively still, where dutchie777 became our Fourth Spun King of NA, and to her Uncle Spun extend thanks for posing so prettily and responding so politely to his regal duties. Congratulations and heartfelt Spun thanks to you both!

Before I retire to my chambers there are a few matters which have been drawn to my attention that require some elucidation, I beg your forbearance... On the matter of Gender. Uncle Spun has noted that  despite the multifarious forms and features of the Spunlings that he has had the pleasure to see in Spunland, most display some outward sign of gender. It is with regard to this that Uncle Spun carefully chooses his pronouns, hence both Spun Kings this week are 'she'. Stop the lights! I hear you cry, does this not mean that they are Spun Queens? No, alas it does not. The Spun Queen is missing, an issue which none feel more acutely than I. The Spun Pipeline can no more produce the Spun for a Queen than a banana tree can bud a rose. Such is how things currently stand.

From next week the Coronations will be moved to Tuesday - there are fascinating and rather complex reasons for this, but I have waffled on a little too long here and so will explain at some later date. The key thing to know is that the Fifth Kings of Spun will be those with the Spun Crown on Tuesday the 17th of September, at 8pm BST in the EU and 3pm PST in North America. Until then have a truly Spun time!
