Aeris excels at Mathematics, there always was number juggling to make ends meet below the plate, but she's hit or miss with History. It's not that she doesn't know History, quite the opposite. She knows too much. She knows what really happened, and all the little bits that get left out of the books written by the victors. Dead Cetra still talk and they have a lot to say for the one who can listen. So she knows what happens and has a hard time not stabbing the little ovals on the test paper while she shades, trying to bite down the outrage and give the 'right' answer. She'll have to fix this crap one day.

Sephiroth will never have quite her touch with math, never much enjoyed playing around with the gruesome numbers of war. He discovers a gift for literature instead. Once he's watched an online class or two and got the hang of it, it's really just the same thing he's been trying to do all his life. See past the surface and figure out what people really mean. Metaphor and symbolism, it's just the euphemism and double entendre of the written word. And he always did love a good yarn, before Dr. Gast died and stories went away. He won't let them get away again.

They both ace standardized science and try not to think too much about it.

The movie is due out this September. It might suck, not everyone's coming back, bunch of new faces we can't possibly get much backstory on, but who cares, it's a fine excuse for a tea party! If the movie disappoints at least the food will be good.

The Duchess, of course, being a big fan of period dramas and as close as a canine can come to being the likes of Judi Dench or Maggie Smith, will be the guest of honor. There's enough time to wrangle up a doggie outfit of some sort for her, I'm thinking pearl beads, maybe a hat.

And of course there's the menu, which has to be dog safe. I'm not letting them make a full meal or any kind of habit of it but it will be a very special treat. There's no food like people food, after all. Since I like to plan ahead, I've decided:

1. Cucumber mint sandwiches on white bread. I grow my own mint. I make quite decent white bread. There's excellent butter to be had. This is a no-brainer.
2. Brie on brown bread, for the color contrast and the savory touch. Maybe a very light portion for the Duchess, she is a large lady.
3. Plain scones, because I don't like raisins and dogs can't eat them anyway. Plenty of fancy jam in the house already for the humans, guess we'll see what's open when the time comes. I'm considering experimenting with clotting cream myself but there are reasonably acceptable substitutes to be had.
4. Some variety of tea cakes. Chocolate is out on account of dogs, but lemon sponge might be doable.

I know, I know, I'm one of those pet owners, but the Duchess should enjoy her shows as much as I do. XD

The End Plotted

I found Ella. Can't justify putting out that cash right now, or maybe ever, and ball-jointed dolls are a rabbit hole I'm not willing to go down, but that feels like her.

ETA: I have also discovered the joys of apricot brandy, or specifically, a hot spiced toddy with lemon, made from apricot brandy. I only made about a third of a cup to try the recipe. Now I'm adding this to our list of Christmas traditions and resisting the urge to fix up the whole bottle.

Time to go

Hello, friends. In light of the new legally dense TOS made available to us only in obscure translation, and my own growing discomfort with certain things, I may be deleting this journal in its entirety soon. I have an import queued up for Dreadwidth so all content and comments will be preserved, and many of you can already find me there. I don't care for the scorched earth approach of moving on in fandom, I prefer to let the old haunted houses stand for visitors old and new, but I'm not sure how much choice the new version of freedom of speech leaves for peace of mind. I go by Ardwynna in fandom anywhere so if we lose touch here, there's always Google.

I'll still be writing, still be posting, and I hope we stay in each other's circles one way or another. I've loved having every one of you be a part of my life.

Just a few glimpses of Seph being a dad to each of the kids.


“I’ve got the latest schematics here,” Sephiroth said, hitting the projector function on his tablet so Cloud could see. The tech specs in question warred for his attention with a desktop background that was clearly a photo from home.

“How come you’re so muddy?” Cloud asked.

“What?” Sephiroth looked up. “Oh, the pic. From when the boys were little.”

“Ah, yeah, I remember now,” Cloud said. “Those mud pie battles you used to have.” Sephiroth’s face had softened even as he scrolled to the relevant numbers. “Whatever happened to those?” Cloud asked. “Kids outgrew them?”

“No, not really,” Sephiroth said, hand hovering over the keyboard. “Ari started putting rocks in his.” He shook his head and maximized the window. “I’d have smacked him upside the head if I weren’t also kind of proud.”
