    B7 Ficlet: Eight Billion, Nine Hundred Ninety Million (G)

    For the Obscure and British comment ficathon, from lost_spook's prompt "end of the universe." I'm sure someone has used this punchline already, so apologies to whomever.

    Firefly Fic: We Didn't Bake a Cake So We Knew You Were Coming (NC-17)
    Pursuant to the current discussion of the who, what, where of fictional characters and pegging, (Malory Ortberg,

    I said to myself, hey! I wrote a Firefly threesome pegging fic! (Kaylee/Inara/Simon.) Is it on A03? And it wasn't, so I uploaded it for your PWP pointless smut needs:

    There's a song with the refrain "and now there's two less lonely people in the world!" and I've written a bunch of threesome fics that are basically "and now there's three people who are less bored this afternoon than they were before lunch."

    Written for b7friday, for the prompt All Things English.

    However, I can't get IE to work at all on Verizon, which wouldn't be a problem because I have firefox. BUT Post to b7friday is only on my list of IE bookmarks not my Firefox bookmarks, so I couldn't Post New in b7friday and had to post it as a comment to the prompt so all you b7fridayneers might miss it. And I would not want to deprive any of you of ANY OPPORTUNITY WHATEVER to read one of my fics!

    Intoabar Fic: POWER BALLAD (B7/Empire) (PG-13)
    I finally wrote something! And didn't screw up the formatting enough to keep the fic from posting!
    or http://archiveofourown/works/3805075 (same fic, just one is the Intoabar link, the other the link to the Intoabar A03 collection).

    Power Ballad Or: The Lyons, The Witch, and the Closet
    For the delectation of the three people in the universe who are familiar with both canons! (For those who are not, well, Cookie really does dress like that and does turn up places where she isn't supposed to be.)

    Nigella Lawson's family really does eat Lemon Surprise Pudding.

    I've often seen posts about what a dumb tag "pre-slash" is but...there are situations like this.

    Voice from the Past

    A fail_fandom_anon nonnie linked this repository of Old Skool B7 vids, including several to songs from musicals, a Thing that I keep wanting to happen. And there's even one to "Against All Odds," which I did not know about when I wrote TALMN.

    There are also "illustrated script fragments," episode summaries with stills and clips, which could be useful for recruiting one's friends.

    ION, the Folio Society is publishing a longer version of Trollope's "The Duke's Children"--aka Victorian Director's Cut.

    NYC Peeps: Free Ticket for Duchess of Malfi on Thursday
    I have an extra ticket for the film of the Globe Theatre production of The Duchess of Malfi--it's this Thursday, Feb. 26, at the Sunshine Theater (Houston St. between 1st and Second Avenue). Already paid for, so you don't have to pay me for it. Well, it's an e-ticket, so we'll have to meet up at the theater. Let me know if you're interested, first reply to wins!

    Measures of Music
    I was thinking about the time schemes in "Measure for Measure"--Isabella is probably a novice about to take her vows, so she's at an important threshold. I mean, when Lucio comes to see her, it's pretty much the last time she'd ever get to see and talk to a man. (There's that jazz about you can talk to a man but not see him, or vice versa.) However, you have to be a novice for a while before you can take your vows, and it also seems like Isabella just got to the convent ("Why isn't this place stricter?"). (Cut for length)

    Drive-by: Crossing the Streams
    I can't do it myself because I can't do graphics, but all I want to say is...where are the Texts from the Federation with a final panel "Marvel Civil War"?

    Yuletide: Voila, Revealiness!
    I didn't sign up, so no official entry. Four treats:

    Child Ballad: Jack Reacher books/Dr. Horrible's Sing Along blog

    Christmas Won't Be Christmas Without Any Presents: Orphan Black

    Mean Grinch and Linnet Bird: yes, I am the person who wrote the Sweeney Todd coffee shop AU

    Seven Habits of Effective Aristocrats: Twelfth Night, aka The One With the Reverse Epigraph

    Wot I was thinking about today: the most popular TV show in the Radch Empire: Miaanaai Vice! She's human, *she's* an ancillary. Together they fight crime, except of course if the Emperor ordered the crime! Vy. influential re fashions in songs, tea sets, and gloves.

    Om Nom Nom: Greece has a South
    I'm going to a small gathering at a friend's house tonight, so I'm bringing an orange/endive salad from Smitten Kitchen and some...well, Greek and USian-South style hummus. I haven't done the salad yet because I don't want it to get too pickled. (Cut for length)

    *A delightful spice blend that comes in jars with a grinder on top.

    Om Nom Nom: Unofficial Blini
    I just had some yummy yeast-raised coconut buckwheat crepes (with Trader Joe's maple-agave syrup) for breakfast. About an hour before Estimated Time of Breakfast, I took out one of my huge Pyrex measuring cup/batter bowls, and tipped in a cup of white flour and half a cup of buckwheat flour, a sprinkle of yeast, and some salt, with enough water to make it into batter

    Approaching breakfast time, I added some unsweetened dried shredded coconut and a well-beaten jumbo egg (because that's the size of egg I happen to have).

    As you can see these are sort of like tropical blini. I used a non-stick frying pan with lots of butter. As the Russian proverb goes, "the first pancake is always a lump," but the didactic point is that once you have the pan hot enough (but not over a high flame, you just have to leave it there for a while) and remember not to get the batter all the way to the edge of the pan, or there'll be no room to flip it, soon pancake production quality will improve dramatically. Although even if nicely browned the crepes are a sort of weird color--the cooked egg turns orange-y.

    Yuletide Meta: Skin in the Game
    About seven more hours until the Yuletide collection opens! (And perhaps my instinct to get the treats into main collection stems from the commonly held perception that hardly anyone bothers to read Madness.) (Cut for length)

    BTW I just made a necklace for a somewhat flamboyant friend of mine, out of a garland of metallic green beads, with the smallest available Christmas balls, in anodized-aluminum finish colored duck-egg blue and green, attached to the garland with gold paper clips. It looks awesome, and I think I'm going to borrow it for Saturday when I'm going out to dinner with a friend. I mean, obviously I could just keep it and make another one, but I seldom wear jewelry and have lots of necklaces already.

    Yuletide Report: Shake, Shake, Shake*
    Welcome to dateline "what part of Not Doing Yuletide didn't I understand?" I just posted a fourth treat. The inside of my head: a magical very weird place.

    Two of the treats are theater fandoms; one is a TV fandom that I've written before but isn't B7; one is a crossover between a book fandom and a TV fandom. About 7,000 words total, but they're all long enough to be in the main collection, because for some reason I wanted to make them long enough.

    At least until the flames start pouring in, my Best Yuletide Experience Ever! It's like being evil Spiderman--great power, no responsibility.

    *A clue.

    Drive-By: It's Gauda Prime Day!
    One can hardly wish you a "happy" one under the circumstances.

    Well, maybe there's a God above,
    But all I've ever learned of love,
    Is how to shoot at someone who outdrew ya

    Drive-By: Austentation
    Pursuant to an FFA discussion of male Austen characters, comparative hotness of, I always have to remember which one is Wickham and which one is Willoughby, so obviously Lawless Desire is brought to you by The Letter W.

    Leading to posit a new Austen musical, WICKHAM, with the big number being Defying Propriety.

    Thanks to kassrachel for the link.

    In the spirit of ecumenicism, from the AV Club:
