    Summary

    "Meanwhile, I will raise my own glass to how you made me fast and expendable / And I will drink to your excellent health and your cruelty; will you have one on me?" - Joanna Newsom, "Have One On Me."

    The gods are laughing, Cersei is certain, when a scant five months after his coronation, and three weeks before he was to wed her and make her queen, Robert is thrown from his horse. He lands hard on the cobbled street, instantly breaking his neck. She is certain the gods are laughing, not so much because of that, but because of what spooked his horse in the first place- not a would be Dornish assassin, not a sudden storm, nor a mob of angry peasants demanding justice for their still ruined city, but from a loose pig. A loose pig is what brought down the Demon of the Trident, the Storm King come again. A black-eared sow bolted out from a dung heap, startled his horse, and he lost his seat before he knew what was happening.

    (In which Cersei prepares to wed King Stannis Baratheon, first of his name, in the wake of the sudden and tragic death of Robert.)

    Summary

    Watchmen patrol the entrances and exits to the small ward, in case anyone gets any clever ideas about slipping out of the city by nightfall, but what would be the point? Most tracker chips are set to detonate a mile out from Mos Espa city limits. The enterprising would simply dig them out, but the chips are migratory and move throughout the body over the years; you’d have to be very lucky, or your chip defective, to be able to suddenly feel it under the skin of your neck or leg or wrist one day.

    Still, most every slave Shmi knows has a habit of running their hands up and down their limbs whenever they have a moment’s rest. Searching, always searching, consciously or not. Waiting for some lucky day when they feel it, the way an expectant mother might anxiously wait for her baby’s kicks. But with Anakin, Shmi never waited, nor was there any anxiety. She felt him from the very first weeks, dancing in her belly until the very last days of her pregnancy. Even then, she was not worried. He was born early, but that’s Ani- impatient, always so impatient, restless and impulsive, and never, ever, tired, even when night comes.

    (In which Shmi, a life long survivor, decides her and her son's fate.)

    Summary

    When CAPTAIN AMERICA walks into the precinct, Jake staples his finger and doesn't realize it for like, six hours. He can only be happy that Scully and Hitchcock leave every day they can at 4:48pm so that they couldn’t bring shame upon the family.

    Summary

    “I have a farm in Connecticut,” Howard announced into the melancholy silence. “And nothing to do this Christmas but play the white knight. Darling, marry me? Mr. Stone will get his Christmas, you’ll get your article, the soldier will get his all-American holiday, and Ms. Carbonell will keep her job, for whatever that’s worth.”
