children of dune - leto 1



To say I wait for this fic on tenterhooks would be an understatement.

Qui Habitat: Art is Long by miss_porcupine - set before Qui Habitat somewhat, in continuity with the rest. It's not necessary to have read it beforehand, but this is a fantastic AU and when you finish this one, you should read the rest.

Okay, so there is the actual summary: Life is short, art is long, opportunity fleeting, experimenting dangerous, reasoning difficult. -- Hippocrates

And there is a commenter with what I'd summarize with: A reminder that you can't know whether a person will break or not before they're tested.

Yes. That. Right there.

Five Dangerous Things by ltlj - gorgeous five very dangerous planets and the team that ran swiftly from them. Including this:

John had to admit that in hindsight, screening the original Wormhole Extreme for the whole expedition and filming their comments and reactions, then sending it to the SGC labeled "documentary video" did make it seem like they had asked for this. "Probably."

He is lucky there isn't a price on his head. *glee* Oh John.

I am absolutely sure there is something else here, but I have four new colors of post it notes (whee Costco sales!), eight colored pens, eight colored flags, and really. New office supplies. Happy.

i wonder what a bread machine makes, then

The new build (updated code) for teh system goes up Saturday. So my week is hell. Also, I totally bombed that C++ test and brought my grade down to a B. Normally, this would be a time of eh because let me tell you, I was too tired to study much and was still fighting that damn homework assignment, but gah. But it totally is not, and it's because of fucking structures, which turned out to be like, a fourth of the questions despite the fact we only spent ten minutes on them in class.


However. Someone--I have no idea who now, but they totally livened up my life--emailed or commented to me on--wait for it--Bread Wank.


The sugar and eggs drag the recipes firmly out of the French Bread category (really the bread category in general). Microwaving the dough is also a prohibited act in real bread making.

Seen at OTF Wank at Journalfen, Stupid Free, SF Drama, and Domestic Snark.

Also? Bread Laws (no, really) and Canned haggis. (kinda terrifying).
