Carry On Chapter 44

“Simon!” Baz cries out again. “Wait! They’re not dark creatures!” He gets to the end of the ramparts, but instead of stopping, he leaps up on top of the wall, then out over the moat—just takes a running jump off the building! And doesn’t fall! He floats out over the moat and lands on the other side. It’s the prettiest thing I’ve ever seen.
The dragon must think so, too, because it stops struggling with me and follows Baz with its head.
Its wings are beating less furiously. It almost lolls in the air, dipping in Baz’s direction and snuffling little puffs of fire.
Baz runs towards us, then stands with his legs apart, his wand in the air.
“Baz!” I yell. “No! You’re flammable!”
“So is everything!” he shouts back at me.
But he’s already pointing at the dragon and casting a spell:
“Ladybird, ladybird, fly away home, your house is on fire, and your children are gone.”

So I was house cleaning and I discovered this ancient relic from a forgotten age.
It appears to be a book about the history of mechanical automatons through the ages, in good condition.
It has been signed on the inside cover by the original Steam Powered Giraffe band. (post The Jon, anyway.)
The Spine seems to have drawn a big ol’ angry kitty face, but I can’t remember why. Steve Negrete drew a missile about to blow up Michael Reed’s house, and Paige drew a happy paigeface.
I was gonna Goodwill this, but I think I’d rather re-home it.
Does anyone want this/would you pay me money for this?

I know doing a full re-watch with tweeting, etc is a lot to ask you guys , especially considering the amount of participation you got, but have you considered setting up a viewing schedule for Hulu? So we don't all have to watch and tweet at the same time, but we're at least watching the same episodes on the same days to maybe get them on the "Popular on Hulu" episodes page? I don't know if this would help, but maybe it would at least align our viewing a little.

Sure! That’d be fantastic. We’ve decided on trying one episode per day from the 30th of May to the 8th of June as a primer to the ATX festival. 

Start with the Pilot on May 30th, at any time you choose! Continue each day by watching the subsequent episode. This can be done at any time that works for you during the day! Hopefully we can get certain episodes onto the Popular Episodes page with us all watching a specific episode each day for 10 straight days. Hope everyone can join in!!!

#PickUpPitch prompt fills - would’ve gotten away with it too

@alwayskels is an absolute champ and sent in even more postcards asking Netflix and Hulu to #PickUpPitch

The prompt: While in Toronto for an away game Ginny takes Drake up on his offer for a date. The Padres don’t trust him and crash their date to keep an eye on their girl.

(If you’d like me to write a 1K word fic for a prompt of your own, follow the directions at the end of this post)

If Ginny hadn’t been starting for their first game in Toronto, she might have paid more attention to whatever the hell it was her teammates were up to. But this was her first chance to play in an interleague game at an American League field. Much as she was looking forward to having a DH, she needed to have a strong start if that was all she could contribute to the game. And that meant knowing the Blue Jays lineup front, back, and inside out.

So, when Blip shoved another bottle of champagne in her face, along with another opened card, Ginny made general sounds of interest to whatever questions were thrown her way all while keeping her eyes fixed on scouting reports. 

There was part of her that wondered what the big deal was, but the heat maps and video on her tablet were way more important. Not that Eliot seemed to understand when he insisted on snapping a picture of her and the champagne to post to instagram. Ginny smiled and went straight back to her prep work. 

(If there was more discontented muttering around her than usual, Ginny clearly had other things to focus on.)
