padparadscha discusses her latest idea for a short story:

Actually, it's a somewhat serious story about an alien coming to terms with the death of a loved one, the circumstances of which raise some tough ethical questions about nature versus technology and our responsibility toward the life around us. He grows to understand how in all things, the good is mixed with the bad.

And then his cow explodes.

So, you know. Best of both worlds, I guess.

boogieshoes considers how it might really have gone down:

'SGT NOAH!'

'O Captain my Captain?'

'BUILD AN ARK, ACCORDING TO OPERATIONAL STANDARD GOD-5S-42. GATHER ALL THE ANIMALS IN THE WORLD, USING THE ANIMAL MAINTENANCE MANUAL SPECS. DON'T FORGET TO FEED THEM.'

'Captain?'

'YES?'

'May I inquire as to the purpose of these orders, Sir?'


'NOAH, DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE CONCEPT OF OPERATIONAL SECURITY?'

'Yes, Lord.'

'GOOD. SO DO I.'

no context to speak of, but the rest of the post is fannish in nature. Open post, QWP

padparadscha has discovered a new form of music appreciation:
Sitting in the second row at the symphony listening to a stellar orchestra produce a velvety billow of music,* with magnificent cadences and brilliant cohesion—and having nothing in my head but cuddly G-rated slash scenes involving the very flail-oriented conductor and the cute young soloist.

I couldn’t help it! The conductor had the fluffiest fauxhawk I’ve ever seen! And he winked at the soloist between movements! Winked! No jury would convict me, dammit!
Context listens between the lines.
