narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (sepia)
Cultivation (PG. 2029 words. Eduard-centric.)
The necessary cultivation of the political elite also involves pruning away the excess. With the scantest of references to episode 10.
Addressing just why the unfortunate Trugler of episode 10 of the first series managed to carry on as he did and what Naoji’s up to a year or so after having finished school.

In other news, my hibiscus tea has finally arrived in a small and battered box that took its time arriving from Egypt and the result is a thing of beauty. It’s this brand but in a larger quantity and is apparently good for a whole range of things which interest me somewhat less than the actual flavour.
Peanut butter cookies on the other hand seem to be a tad problematic as I highly suspect that the peanut butter that I used was far softer than the recipe presumed. They’re not bad, though perhaps a little more savoury that I’d been hoping for and look more like rock cakes than anything else because by the time I decided to make them I couldn’t be bothered with doing much more than dumping the mixture onto a baking tray with a spoon instead of making them look presentable. This is one of the few occasions when I’m actually baking for myself anyway so I don’t really have to worry about presentation.

One Meine Liebe fic (Indivisible 1460 words. G. Talk of alliances, marriages and Braunschweig spring parties. Post-Rosenstolz.), a [livejournal.com profile] domino_effect_ log (yes, this is the one involving the NPC tarot reader that I’ve been promising), some charming though modern teaglasses, two Mozart librettos (I ought to keep an eye out for this one too) and a hibiscus tea blend later I’m beginning to suspect that over the last week I may have been fighting off the flu. It would explain a few things really.

At least pater’s birthday present has arrived and I’ve since discovered that the sherry glasses and decanter set that I ordered is actually a handmade one which is a lovely extra touch. It also reminds me that I used to have a pair of handmade margarita glasses but I can’t actually recall what became of them or exactly where they came from. I do recall it being somewhere in Wales and going on a tour of the workshops but since I also recall waking up in either Merthyr Tydfil or Llandrindod Wells during one long daytrip when I’m fairly certain that I was staying somewhere along the Pembroke coast it’s probably anyone’s guess as to where the glassmakers were located. Though at least google reassures me that Lamphey Palace is in fact in Pembrokeshire which was probably local enough.

As International Narsus Month comes to an end and the world prepares for Yule (or Eris which I celebrated last year at around the same time) I feel like I ought to share something suitably insightful with the world; alas, not being currently able to think of anything I’ll share fic instead.

I wrote this over two weeks ago but never did get round to looking over it again until now.

I had a rant to edit too but since I’m having to make use of both wrist supports and I ended up preparing a marinate for tomorrow much later than I’d intended, I expect that it’s probably time for bed now instead.

Drabble )
narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (really)
