    Summary

    Moby Dick is, at it's heart, a sitcom waiting to escape. I've heard that calling voice and have come to deliver it. Welcome to White Whale Grocery (the Pequod Street branch!) where the boss has a chaotic hold over his employees with a forty eight year grudge to sustain it, and honestly everyone only works here to pay the bills.

    A series of drabbles & ficlets.

    Summary

    A Poem I wrote in school, senior year, but I like it so I decided to post it. Maybe you'll know just what I'm saying. I thought of the similarity back in junior year and finally figured how to write about it. I don't like politics AT ALL but I thought maybe someone would get a laugh out of it..

    Summary

    It is a well known fact that the Eastern Gate was guarded by Aziraphale. But the very designation of 'East' implies that there is more than one entrance, and more than one Guardian.

    Summary

    Квикег вошел в комнату. Я чуть дышал, ощущая, как наливаются кровью мои самые мужественные части тела. Натянув одеяло по глаза, чтобы мой сосед не заметил странного румянца на щеках, я притворился спящим.

    Summary

    Captain Ahab's first encounter with Moby Dick, as told by an eyewitness who finds Ishmael's version of events severely lacking. More than an eyewitness, in fact, since our narrator is serving as the Pequod's surgeon at the time. Unfortunately, however, he is about as experienced at surgery as Ishmael is at whaling ...

    A note on the tags - this is definitely gen, but it's rather slashy gen. And while there are no graphic depictions of violence, there is a very graphic depiction of (pre-anaesthetic) surgery.

    Summary

    Ahab and Starbuck, on the homeward voyage after Ahab's first encounter with Moby Dick.

     Perhaps God grants respite even off the howling, pagan Patagonian coast, or perhaps it was Starbuck’s hand, which yet lay on Ahab’s leg, the two opposing forces – the frozen fingers and the fevered thigh – having gone some way toward reaching a balance.
