neotoma: Roadrunner fetish goes "beep beep!' (roadrunner)
( Dec. 31st, 2015 09:41 am)
Not a complete list by any means, but some delightful stories to read that you might not have seen anyway.

Goblin Emperor

Peace & Purring -- Csethiro and Maia escape the tenth iteration of their wedding rehearsal, and relax a little.

Imperial Radch

Daughter of Fishes -- Translator Zeiat has an ingenious idea that she thinks will make tea even better.

Ray Bradbury

When She Woke at Dawn -- The Martians are returning to Earth. (The Martian Chronicles & There Will Come Soft Rains)

Seseme Street

Felt Lines -- Sesame Street muppets talk about their personal experiences on StoryCorps.

Exclusive Content -- In old days, Cookie think, just having monsters on television was spooky. Monsters doing classy drama was transgressive. Transgressive mean it a thing that people not expect you to do, and they think you strange when you do it. It special kind of surprise.

Location is Everything -- Mr. Hooper has always wanted his own store.

Stargate Universe

Manifest Destiny -- "I think I've worked out the bad news on my own,” Rush says as crisply as he can, like that will keep the tremble out of his voice, and now he's the one who can't quite look at Eli. “What's the good news?”

Australia Is No Better Than Here -- Young and Rush, in the three year stasis. Or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, possibly.


Gift Guides for Grumpy Bastards -- When Casey tries to figure out a present for the birthday Frank doesn't want to celebrate, she finds the one person who knows everything there is to know on Frank Walker.

Vorkosigan Saga

Not Quite Vor -- Deportment isn't the sum of a girl's education when she grows up Koudelka. Few people stop to remember that quieter than Martya or gentler than Delia doesn’t mean particularly gentle or quiet.
Has anyone ever tried substituting cubeb for peppercorn in Pfeffernüsse? I'm thinking it might be very tasty. And it's not like I don't have time to bake...
So I had dinner with [ profile] fabrisse on Christmas -- she made salt cod with potatoes, I made an apple pie (though with a butter crust) and brought cinnamon blueberry shrub syrup that we mixed up.

Tonight, I had dinner with her again, her treat at Belga Cafe. She had an onion torte and a mushroom risotto (chanterelles and truffles, among others) while I had a beet salad and roast pheasant in armagnac sauce with roast endive, brussel sprouts, and potato croquettes. We split a desert of apple tartin en flambe with vanilla ice cream, because who can resist setting things on fire?

Hopefully that's a good start to the new year.
