|Drive-By: FAKE NEWS!
Get it right, guys...it's not Drumpf drawing with a Sharpie on a Hurricane Dorian map, it was last year when he tried to draw on a Hurricane Matthew map...with a SharPei. And it bit him, so he launched a trade war with China.

Trump has just announced that he is setting up a branch of the military called Space Command. I can hardly wait for it to announce that it no longer recognizes the authority of the President.

|Drive-By: A Wandering Daughter Job
A SCANDAL IN BOHEMIA: Polixenes hires Sherlock Holmes to find out about that "shepherdess" in the cabinet photo that his son is mixed up with.

A comfort re-read of Elizabeth Schafer's "Ms-Directing Shakespeare? Women Direct Shakespeare" mentions a production of Taming of the Shrew that built on Petruchio's throw-away line "Why do they say that Kate doth limp?" by giving her an orthopedic shoe. (Taming of the?)
And that made me think of an epilogue where Kate soliloquizes that the winter of their discontent has been made glorious summer by Bianca, this daughter of Minolta. Kate, concluding that love forsook her in her mother's womb, is determined to prove a villain. So she starts out by squandering Petruchio's money (i.e., her dowry), gadding around outside the house, doing the act of darkness with servingmen, and escalating to petty treason by slowly and horribly poisoning Petruchio.
Also: AS YOU MIKE IT: young sound engineer reacts to lack of technical opportunities for women in the theater by disguising herself as a boy. The ambitious ex-OUDS director she fell in love with at first sight doesn't even recognize her.
|Drive-By: The United States of Hygge
I think I speak for many of my fellow citizens of Jersey City, and indeed the entire NY Metro Area, not to mention California, both Portlands, and the part of Washington DC not inhabited by elected officials. We're ready to take one for the team and be traded to Denmark in exchange for Greenland and A Player to Be Named. I mean, I ate those butter cookies 30 years ago and I'm still re-using the re-usable tin, so A-Plus sustainability. I'm down for lots of candles and single-payer healthcare, too.

|Blakes7/Man in the High Castle Fic: LIFE ON MARX
I actually finished something, partly because I feel honor-bound to defend the cause of bizarre crossovers by doing each round of Intoabar. Hence, "Life on Marx," https://archiveofourown.org/works/20213155
a title I am delighted with, although I didn't think of it until the fic was well underway.
I actually wondered whether "lower than canon level of character death" is an appropriate Content Note.
Fail_fandom_anon has (used to have? I stopped reading it after some kerfuffle or other) a recurring meme where someone gives a description that applies to two or more canons, so I crossed over "canons with a fairly useless Resistance movement and a major character named Blake."
My remaining WP, coincidentally, also has Cally initiating casual sex (and enjoying every minute of it).

|Drive-By: Ot Hello, Kitty!
If Shakespeare had kept Cinthio's original murder method--dropping part of the ceiling on Desdemona to make it look like an accident--then it would be the Marry, Tile Her, Moor Show.
And the opening credits ("Who can turn the world on with her smile?"--reaction shots of happy Cassio and Rodrigo and glowering Iago) would end with tossing of a spotty handkerchief, not a beret. You're gonna make it after all!

|Drive-By: O Cursed Spite
It occurred to me today that the words, words, words Hamlet reads in the lobby is probably the latest edition of Time Out of Joint.

DAVID HOCKEY: Game, usually played in swimming pools, where the goal is hitting Goliath with a puck.

I see that the new Games of Thrones kinkmeme is called Gotkink. True, this parallels Got Milk, but pink_mast and myrish_swamp were RIGHT THERE.
I submitted some prompts for corsetsandlemons, the Victorian fiction kinkmeme but, try as I may, I cannot think of any Trollope prompts.

|Drive-By: The Missing Link?
My friends group includes many people who are into Snowbaz, and I've seen some lovely art on Tumblr--but where is the illo of flowered suit!Avon smooching WingsnTail!Blake?

|Drive-By: Talk to the Hand
My prediction for the Game of Thrones finale:
"Yo, wacky dream, bro!" said King Robert Baratheon. "You know I'd never do that, right? Group hug!"
And they all laughed...

Pursuant to my last drive-by (pointing out the resemblance between Elizabeth Warren and 13): if I could photoshop, I'd do a mock-up of 13!Warren standing in front of the Tardis...on the cover of Timelord Magazine.
