Okay, running joke, but the plush duck is adorable, ^^; the worst part is you might not know the character all that well but, Every one who's read my friends story say they hate her, As one reacted: 'Kill her! Kill her!... Oh Ducky! Kill her!' It was MOST amusing! Anyway, Des is an elf and a very happy one at that. She's one of the main characters outta like 10 or 12. So it's all good!
