    Summary

    “You’re young,” Alex says bluntly. “Younger than me, even, and no one thought me any good until I’d proven myself in battle. And those of us who study the sword have many more opportunities to prove ourselves publicly--you lot are all shut away in your cloister, how would anyone even know?”

    “It’s not like they thought anything of me there either until the first Trials,” Thom says, a touch bitter. “I am so tired of proving myself.”

    “I would be too,” Alex says. “I’d look for something decisive. That’s not to say you have to do what Delia says, of course.”

    “You don’t seem to doubt me,” Thom says, something odd in his voice. He knocks his shoulder against Alex’s, carefully.

    Alex means to use Thom of Trebond to further his own plans. It doesn't turn out that way at all.

    Summary

    On the road to hell, on the railroad line.

    You know how this story ends. I've told it before.
    Oh. You mean what happens next? You're sure, sister? Don't ask questions if you don't want the answer.

    Summary

    When Ishmael angsts over never having kissed his bosom friend Queequeg, the crew of the Pequod rally around his increasingly desperate efforts, serving up a cavalcade of romcom clichés in their misguided attempts to find Ishmael his happily ever after. They’re serious about putting romcom back into Romanticism—and if there ain’t no extravagant musical number sung in the shadow of a breaching whale, then by Neptune it ain’t love.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Oh no I have a new favorite Yuletide fic. Moby-Dick, Ishmael/Queequeg, metatextual just slightly anachronistic farce. With one pun so dark and terrible that the author, by descending to it, has surrendered her or his immortal soul to Hell.

    Summary

    “Do you remember, Sam, how Bilbo used to start the holiday at Bag End?”

    Inexplicably Jewish hobbits talk about celebrating Pesach, and of course someone has to sing Chad Gadya.

    Featuring Chad Gadya as Tolkien-style verse.
