[fic] A Little More Spock (ToS/Who crossover crack)
illogical bitch
persephoneflame
Title: A Little More Spock (or Another Anomalous Transporter Incident)
Fandom: Star Trek: the Original Series, Doctor Who
Characters: Spock, Ten, Rose, Scotty
Rating: G
Word count: 864
Disclaimer: Not mine, not for profit.
Warnings: Crack. Unbetaed. Spock-doesn't-get-human-behavior trope.
Notes: In November of 2009, I asked my flist for random prompts. I wrote this then, and have only just gotten around to posting it. This is for deadkytty9 who said she'd enjoy seeing Spock meet the Doctor, and for nigelnameddog, with my apologies for not including tacos.

Another Anomalous Transporter IncidentCollapse )

Prompt Me
kirk/spock know your roots
persephoneflame
I'm trying to get back into the swing of writing (I'm thinking of using NaNo for this, too) and I think starting with 1000 word shorts will help. This is where you come in, lovely flist! Give me a prompt or challenge. Any pairing or fandom or ensemble I'm familiar with will be considered!

(That is, Star Trek: TOS, Dresden Files, various Marvelverse, Doctor Who, Good Omens, Potterverse, Firefly, House, um... anything you've heard me mention offhand, I'm sure I'll be willing to give it a go! MU*-folk, I'll be happy to write our-character specific pieces, too)

Sittie's Red Beans & Rice
AB - TV Chef
persephoneflame
This is my grandmother's recipe, which I learned by watching her make this at least once a week for our entire family. Traditionally, red beans and rice is served on Monday (wash day), but my family ate it on Fridays. After my grandmother moved to North Louisiana, she would fix red beans on Friday morning, and on Friday night, the extended family would come over for dinner and to play dominoes.

Right now, I've got a big pot simmering on the stove as our first home-cooked meal in California.

This is our recipe; use it as a starting point for your own. :)


Sittie's Red Beans & Rice (by Ethel Haik)
Serves - 6-8, freezes well

1lb red kidney beans, soaked overnight (retain soaking water)
1lb smoked sausage (I like turkey; sliced into medallions or medallion halves)
1T vegetable oil
1 large yellow onion (chopped)
2-3 stalks celery (chopped)
1 large green bell pepper (chopped)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
Tony Chacherie's Creole Seasoning

Heat oil in a large stock pot over medium heat.
Add onions, celery, and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables are soft and fragrant.
Add garlic and sausage. Cook, stirring, until sausage is lightly browned.
Add beans and soaking water (add more water if needed, bringing water level high enough so the beans are floating)
Bring to a boil, then back down to a simmer.
Sprinkle Tony's evenly over the top and mix in.
Simmer, covered, for 2-3 hours or until beans are very soft.
Remove 1/4 - 1/2 of the beans and smash or whirl through blender and return to pot.
Simmer for an additional 30-60 minutes uncovered or until beans are thick.

Serve over rice or cornbread or both. Freezes extremely well (without rice).

  • 09:41 @Splodygirl ZOMG HI (Also will totally take a ton of screenshots and babble at you) #
  • 09:42 **watching the download bar on her Sims 3 download** Fifty minutes up to 3 hours? GRRR. It better shape up or I'm going to Target. #
  • 09:52 Goddamnit. I knew trusting EA's download system was a bad idea. #
  • 10:15 Ugh. I hate you, EA, and your 504 errors on my download. Had blissful 2.5MB down for a few seconds, now stuck at 150-300KB/sec #
  • 10:18 Sigh. My love of digital delivery bites me in the ass. I have been seduced by how easy and consistent Steam is. #
  • 10:19 If only I'd looked more closely and realized I couldn't start the download until 9am local time, anyway. #
  • 10:39 @MeghanTMorris I hate you. Well, mostly I hate EA's download infrastructure. But I glare at you in impotent jealous rage. #
  • 10:40 The worst part of all of this is... I'm considering downloading the iphone Sims 3 to get my fix while EA's incompetent download servers fail #
  • 11:47 On Don't Ask, Don't Tell: bit.ly/M6TNG #
  • 13:28 In case anyone was wondering, still downloading. A little less than halfway through. Some of this is possibly blamed on my internet. #
  • 14:24 impatient - www.flickaday.com/p/762/103016 #
  • 15:56 Holy shit, the download is done! #
