    Summary

    "We’re alive in defiance of the law, now,” Natasha said bitterly.

    “Well,” Steve said, and pushed his plate away. “We’ll just have to break in and get them.”

    “Right, let’s take it from the top,” Natasha said wearily. “The Raft is a fully submersible supermax prison—“

    “We can do it,” Steve said.

    This was a treat to read. I have been working at a shitty job that just keeps getting shittier, and saving this story for myself when I'm off work, and it's been a treat to read.

    The ATF has questions about how some explosions on Greendale's campus tie into the local rumors of a cult led by Troy Barnes. The study group has answers.

    Sort of.

    This was adorable! And scioscribe's writing style is *perfect* for this fandom - flexible and clever with the metatextual devices, good flow, I'm not finding the words I want but it's A+ reading, I'll tell you that much.

    Summary

    When everyone in town became convinced that a dragon really had come again to the Old Lair, and that the town would have to offer it tribute, they all looked at Steve.

     

    Honestly, he was relieved.

    So if you liked dragon books as a kid, this is nostalgic as hell. Plus a little bit of interspecies porn that definitely never made it into any of Patricia C. Wrede's books. None of the ones I read, anyhow.

    Also, potentially a great marketing opportunity for places like BadDragon?

    Summary

    I relayed the information I’d so masterfully committed to memory in my youth, re: the prophet Elijah being taken up to heaven while still alive and in full possession of his faculties. I’d won a prize for Scripture-knowledge and so had details of this sort at my fingertips.

    “Although,” I said, as we neared what I took to be the stratosphere, or some kind of sphere at any rate, “just now my resemblance to the prophet Elijah escapes me.”

    Then they said their translators were getting all gummed-up about the spokes and accused me of everything but cutting paper doilies out of their dictionaries, to which I hotly and daringly replied that if their education hadn’t taught them the King’s English they had jolly well better turn around posthaste and enact something in the way of a Board of Governors coup. The situation rather deteriorated from there.

    The concept is amazing, the execution delightful. 5 thumbs up!
