I was amused yesterday at the Chinese New Year dinner because, lo and behold, Chinese New Year scene in Naomi Novik's Throne of Jade.
First fumblings with chopsticks = much snickering =D
Laurence was embarrassed to see, when he glanced over, that Roland and Dyer were having not the least difficulty with their chopsticks and were already round-cheeked from stuffing food into their mouths.

He himself had only just managed to get a piece of the beef to his mouth by dint of puncturing it with one of his sticks [...]

Decent Chinese food, how I miss you so ;_;

Three facts about Aziraphale from my personal canon/fanon

from: lilian_cho

Link

1) Aziraphale can read books as fast as he can physically turn pages*. However, he chooses to read at human speed** while occasionally sipping from a teacup.

2) There are many benefits to the apparent age of his mortal body. In addition to exuding a non-threatening presence, he never had to discourage interested*** suitors.

3) When Aziraphale inevitably mastered the Internet, he never had to deal with pop-ups, ads, spam and lags****. His favourite thing to do online is searching for out-of-print books.



* The fastest possible speed without igniting the pages.
** That is, at a leisurely pace.
*** Blatant sexual interest, which often happens to Crowley at most inopportune moments.
**** Despite the fact that his computer had no modem or Wi-fi in any shape or form.

Aziraphale had, on several occasions*, persuaded Crowley to take over his angelic duties. When it is his turn to be Crowley's stand-in, he tempts impoverished students** to make splurges on books at Amazon.



* Rare books & manuscripts auction
** A month down the road, they discover they're the recipient of a small grant that they don't remember applying for.

The last dream Dog had

from: lilian_cho
date: Jul. 1st, 2009 08:54 pm (UTC)
Link

Before Dog came to be called Dog, it sometimes dreamt* of charred flesh and twisted limbs.

After Master gave him his name, Dog's dreams were filled with new smells and sounds, and that lovely** tree across Master's house.

Tonight, his tail*** twitched as he dreamt of running, paws leaving imprints on the muddy ground.


* Inasmuch that it could dream, as hell creatures, except for Crowley, do not sleep.
** The grass around it had turned yellow, but this didn't deter Dog's love affair with it.
*** It was a proper mutt tail, none of these snipped off Mini-Pinscher tails.

Four people Chekov never fell in love with, and one person he did

from: lilian_cho
date: Jul. 2nd, 2009 02:56 am (UTC)
Link

1. Captain Kirk always flirts, and he doesn't have an "off" switch. Chekov is relieved that the Captain only teases him by calling him "Ensign Jailbait."

2. The beautiful and competent Lt. Uhura only treats him like a little brother.

3. Dr. McCoy is old.

4. Spock is intelligent and has a commanding presence, but it would unnerve him to be the focus of that measuring gaze for long.

5. Like everyone else on the U.S.S. Enterprise, Sulu is older than him. Sulu never pats his curls though, and he grinned that time Chekov said fencing was invented in Russia.

Three facts about Spock from my personal canon/fanon

from: lilian_cho
date: Jul. 2nd, 2009 02:20 am (UTC)
Link

1. Sarek was negotiating Spock's bonding when he was informed that Spock physically assaulted a fellow student. T'Pring's father made a remark which caused Sarek to deduce that a bonding would be most infelicitous.

2. A Vulcan would find Spock and Uhura’s interaction inappropriate. Since there was no other Vulcan in the Academy, nobody noticed when Spock's gaze on Uhura lingered an extra 0.3 second.

3. When Spock marooned Kirk at Delta Vega, he calculated a 78% chance of Kirk leaving his pod, and a 92% chance of Kirk encountering a native predator. He didn’t calculate Kirk's chance of survival.
