On why Baby It’s Cold Outside discourse is the same as Macbeth discourse, with bonus pastiche.
This is from December, but just in case you missed it: a very short Murderbot story, over at Wired.
(I was reminded of it by Jonathan Strahan's reading roundup at Locus, which I admit I mostly clicked on because its title was a Paul Simon quote. It's too bad that because it was written first for print, it doesn't hyperlink the many many online stories that it recommends, but this is what highlight + right-click/long-press + search is for.)
I'm behind on Brooklyn Nine Nine, but I have a deadline to catch up: March 7, when Lin-Manuel Miranda will be guest-starring.
Adult animated TV versions of MODOK, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler, and Howard the Duck, really, that's what you green-light, Marvel? Really?

skygiants had a dream that "Will Scott, in the Lymond Chronicles, was just a pet rock that Francis had hallucinated was a human being," and now all I want to do is think of other works that would be improved by, or at least lend themselves to, characters actually being pet rocks.
Here's what I've got so far:
- Draco Malfoy, imagined by Harry;
- Moby Dick, imagined by Ahab? (I haven't read it);
- Appa, imagined by Aang; and
- take your pick of Steven Universe spoilers, and not only for the terrible pun.
(I did not realize until now that 3/4 of that list are not actually, uhh, human beings; but I think it's within the spirit of the thing.)
