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 ;_;




Gacked from benebu:

Name a character from one of my fandoms and I'll give you
(a) three facts about him/her from my personal canon/fanon,
(b) a reason s/he sucks,
(c) a reason s/he is awesomecakes,
(d) five things that never happened to that character,
(e) five people s/he never fell in love with and why, (or the usual 4 + 1 configuration)
ETA 06/19/09:
(f) the title of his/her autobiography or biography,
(g) the last dream or nightmare s/he had, OR
(h) how s/he will shuffle off the mortal coil, if it hasn't happened in canon.

You pick the character. I pick the letter.

My fandoms: Harry Potter, Merlin, Good Omens, Star Trek: XI, Smallville, Full Metal Alchemist, Calvin & Hobbes, etc.

The last dream Dog had

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.

Yay, Dog! I was wondering what you would come up with for him.

My favorite is the second one - and the second footnote too^^ Dog's love affair with it

Thank you!

Well, seeing that you know GO canon so well, I figured you wouldn't have to wonder who the hell I was talking about. Plus, minor characters desserve our love too.

I've actually only read the book twice ^^;;

Should probably look for a British audio book one of these days so I can listen to it.

I'm actually more invested in Dog than Adam X-D
To a certain extent, Adam is a symbol. Dog, though, Dog's a character.
