Today I'm at home with the flu and I have a little more time to do silly things ...

Hey Elmo! hope you're donig fine

I love this font... but it's hard to make a difference between a and e.

love rfy WG :)

Get well soon, Elmoyenique!

Upixel is right that a and e are problem characters, but I am not sure it is because they are hard to distinguish from one another. You could add another serif to the top of the a, and while it works in this scheme, it has the strange effect of making a look like A laying on its side (cool or not depending on how you look at it, still it calls a lot more attention to itself). The e reads clearly to me, but its color is too dark.

You could keep the e as it is and make an a out of it by rotating 90° clockwise and flipping horizontally. Kinda cool that you could also make a by rotating e 180°.

@Upixel, @will.i.ૐ: Thanks a lot for your ever friendly and constructive comments. I've changed the first "a". What do you think about the new, please? I'm open to all suggestions. (I also left another version of the "a" which does not bother me at all, you can try it pressing the "+" sign.) Have fun, my friends.

@meek and the FS' Staff: Thanks for this new and encouraging TP. In the end, it seems that my day at home with the flu has served for something good.
@will.i.ૐ, @Upixel: Thank you also for your help.

Hey, my pleasure Elmo! Sorry for the slow reply to your question. The short answer is I think you chose well. #1 edges out #2 on its own terms – plus it leads to the totally sexy æ.

There is still room for creativity in the small grid domain. No fancy custom bricks, no filters, no tricks. Yet these letters look natural with the generous serifs you've endowed them. 10/10

@Frodo7: Thank you dear friend. I try to do something useful and fun, and that I get in FS. Nice to have you back here.

I love the Long Bottoms end to end. It look like a Star Wars Font in a way. Good work
