    Summary

    A murder, a curse, and a missing family heirloom: it’s all in a day’s work for Miss Phryne Fisher, lady detective. She’s modern. She’s fashionable. She’s a Squib – and she’s proud of it, though most of her distant relatives find it easier to ignore her branch of the family. Snobs, the lot of them, except for Percival. So who better to call for help with a tricky family matter?

    Getting her darling baby cousin to drop everything and make for Australia’s distant shores is easy, but convincing him to invite the woman he’s been pining over for the last two years isn’t.

    … Which is precisely why she goes behind his back to invite Miss Goldstein herself. What good is working a case if you can’t have a little fun with it?

    Summary

    Somehow I managed to miss the MFMM 2018 Year of Quote Challenge for the month of April. It may have had something to do with admiring some of the flora and fauna of Australia with lovely friends.
    Thankfully our mistress of the spreadsheets, Firesign, has provided us with a December amnesty month, so I can
    slide this in just a little late.
    The quote I chose is from the bard himself:
    SONNET 27
    Weary with toil, I haste me to my bed,
    I hope you enjoy this little fluff and nonsense.
    I wish many New Years blessings to you all.
    The dear repose for limbs with travel tired;
    But then begins a journey in my head, 
    To work my mind, when body's work's expired:
    For then my thoughts (from far where I abide) 
    Intend a zealous pilgrimage to thee, 
    And keep my drooping eyelids open wide, 
    Looking on darkness which the blind do see: 
    Save that my soul's imaginary sight 
    Presents thy shadow to my sightless view,
    Which, like a jewel hung in ghastly night, 
    Makes black night beauteous and her old face new.
       Lo, thus, by day my limbs, by night my mind,
       For thee, and for myself, no quiet find.

    Summary

    These are all fanvids for Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries, in order that I made them (I think). I've got several posts with a single vid, but this is meant to be all of them. One per chapter. Mostly music vids, but there might be a comedy vid or two in here as well.

    Summary

    So suppose Jack, instead of the Police, went into the Church. He'd need a good reason, of course. Ghosts are a good one. He chooses to exercise his considerable powers of authority over the dead, instead of the living. Phryne has a good reason too, since she's still on the hunt for her sister, unsure if she's alive or dead. The rest of the universe has adjusted accordingly.
