Porkchops Isobel! Sensational recipe developed from a silly song developed from an insane-Leslie-moment! Served with steamed sugarsnap peas and wild rice!

Okay, this is very rough for now, but once we actually get together and figure it out this'll be updated into an actual recipe:

Porkchops are cooked and lightly breadcrumbed. Then, they are given the sauce treatment. The sauce consists of creme fraiche with a more sour-cream base, little bit of salt and some white pepper, and most of all some butter-sauteed apple chunks with a little bit of apple juice, with a sprinkling of paprika on top as a sort of garnish.

All together now - 'Mmmm...'

Copywrite (c) us.


So, here's the background info we're going to tell my roomies if they ask what the hell we're cooking:

[22:03] ClarityInfini: We were contacted by the ghost of a dead woman. Whose family...you see, it's all in the apples. She and her mother and her mother's-mother's-mother for a long time passed down used to use apples.  For fortune-telling, mostly, and spell casting.

She suspected her husband had betrayed her, so she peeled a basket of apples and tossed their skins behind her to tell her the truth. When she found that he had, she cursed the apples, then chopped them up and made this dish. She fed it to him that night.  After the first thee bites, as his throat began to close, her faithless husband realized what she'd done to him.  He stabbed her through the heart with the carving knife, and they both died there that night.

She gave us the recipe through Ouija board. Her name was Isobel.

Here we go! Inserted some foreshadowing for good measure, too.

In which Maria learns that music is no longer her friend.Collapse )

Hah! Took me two days this time, though granted I didn't start it until a month after the last one. Still. I don't think it's quite right, either, but I wanted to get this whole bar scene through, and so it is. Next thing from Kate or Petra, and probably involving mold-aligators.

What were David and Brandon talking about while Aaron and Maria were dancing?

She was interesting enough to capture Aaron's interest, David had to give her that.Collapse )

They're short, but they're enough for me to go on. The Muses are particularly vague because I haven't figured out their past yet.

The Mortals -

The Muses -

So here we go. More Venator-goodness. And I hope I got Aaron's voice relatively right and that he's auburn. The end bit bothers me slightly.

With a definite desire to be productive, and nothing in particular to product, I usually end up playing computer games until something else comes up. Sometimes I stop and actually work at something; this was one of those times. Sort of. I alternated playing Tetris with writing opening paragraphs (one of them decided to be three paragraphs, but they're short.) Pick one, and write the next paragraph in the comments. We'll keep going until we finish a scene and call the story done. What say you?

Hey, I've figured out what order I'm writing these in--scenes narrated. Go figure. They come into my head in the same order they...came into my head. Gee. Who'd have thunk?

Hey. It's Petra Ekaterina Orlov.Collapse )

Just Aaron left, God help us all. *snerk*

Here we have it, Aaron's very first encounter with Maria. And the obligatory subsequent gaping. ;-) The poor boy doesn't know what just hit him.

He had a plan.Collapse )

Unfortunately, the next scene would just be too incoherent from Aaron's POV. Pity. 'Twould be amusing, at least. ;-) Take it away, darling.

Oh, and Aaron thinks the skinny girl looks like Charlemagne. Given that portraits of the man don't show him to be particularly broad-hipped, or skinny, or have at all a remarkable nose, where Aaron got this impression is anyone's guess, but he was the one involved in the thing with the tree in Germany. He was also the military commander involved with the thing with the drapes and the cat that Aaron was thinking of, but indirectly enough that David can be forgiven for not having a clue what he's talking about.

David. Because Diarmaid mac Ailill O'Lughaidh is fun. Always has been.

Introducing the bane of the entire Seelie Court. But don't tell them that.Collapse )
