First useable version of vertical cursive script

I've been working on the vertical cursive version of the script during
the holidays, here are the results so far. (There's a scanner in the
iMac-lab! Whee!)

Background: this script is derived from "that other script", at
and the standalone forms (not shown) are taken as-is from that 'un.

Conculturally, it is the official alphabet used by the "char"s, and due to
certain modern (mes)alliances it has become very popular in Chaldea too,
and of course, it is much better suited for handwriting than the other
one, which is after all tailored for the use on old-fashioned monitors.

Do comment!

(If I'd had a digital camera right now, I could a' uploaded a pic of the
scribbles on the whiteboard too... hmm :) then I could erase 'em and
stop people from adding faces to 'em. Weird how much easier it is to
experiment with a script when you get to write in large letters...)
