    HAHAHAH this is genius. The voice is so good and it builds so well to that punchline. Gen but probably NSFW (you wouldn't think so for a story that starts with cabbage farming...)

    What happens when Tahani does, in fact, take Eleanor up on her offer to stay with her in her Sydney motel room.

    This Eleanor voice is so spot on, and it's a really fun ride to see how these two very different women might get along in an enclosed space. All the little touches about The Good Place!Australia made me laugh (I wish they sold different flavoured tim-tams in vending machines in my area) and shudder in turn (I will never be able to think about my shower drain the same way, thanks a lot gaaaaaaaah).

    Summary

    A Little Red Riding Hood sci-fi AU.

    -

    NAN was located in the most inconvenient place a human could possibly reach. Every time Red had to go out there to perform maintenance, it was an ordeal.

    "It's a milk run," said Akako, who could say that because she didn't have to do it and instead got to stay in the habitat year-round.

    "Maybe a grocery run," said Pula, who never traveled further than the next hab over and also had no real idea of just how much trouble the whole thing was.

    "Tell Grandmother hi for me," said Ruĝa, who was smiling with the full-faced glee of someone who had successfully and permanently foisted their responsibility off on another.

    Clever and a little creepy in the best way - I really enjoyed this take on a classic fairytale.

    Iris' friendship with Arthur, the memories of the golden era of Hollywood, and the soft, sweet relationship budding with Miles are my favourite parts of the movie, so I'm really grateful for this lovely futurefic. I love the idea of Iris putting her talents to better use to preserve a piece of Arthur in their lives forever.
