    Summary

    A post-epilogue addendum to my story "The Last Test and Proof." This used to be Ch. 7 of that story, but I finally decided that story properly ends at Ch. 6, and this bit of silliness is better off on its own.

    Summary: They say you can't make an omelet without breaking a few eggs. At Cair Paravel, you can't hire a new cook without breaking a fair amount of crockery. Featuring Camels, fire, and the Great Hedgehog Incident.

    Summary

    It is said there are five stages of grief. It is also said that if you ask three Narnians a question, you will get four opinions. This story falls somewhere in the middle: if there are many ways to mourn, so there must be many paths towards healing. The ways of preparing tripe, on the other hand, are (thankfully) finite. A story of grief, Guards and gastronomy, inspired by the rich and lovely Narnia as written by Rthstewart, who graciously let me borrow her characters for a while.

    Summary

    “There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.”
