Oh gosh! I almost forgot about this. This is a different little game that’s kinda neat. Post the first line from a WIP and tag as many people as words. I was tagged by the illustrious @threewhiskeylunch! Thanks my dear!
Here’s the first line of my upcoming mshenko Christmas fluff:
“Shit!” Kaidan blew out a long breath after disconnecting the call.
It’s getting closer to December, which means I have already heard at least 3 different people talk about the non-existent “war on Christmas.” If you care that much about the fact that a minimum wage store clerk said “happy holidays” to you rather than “merry Christmas,” it is very clear that Christianity is just a tool for you to tunnel your cultural outrage and not an actual spiritual path. Christmas is supposed to be the time where you contemplate the absolute joy of the Incarnation of God in a stable, in a manger, a symbol of God’s solidarity with the oppressed. If that doesn’t manifest in you being kind and considerate to non-Christians, then you don’t actually give a shit about Christmas at all. You think saying “happy holidays” is going to kill Christmas, but you already killed it whenever you decided to make it part of right-wing reactionary outrage culture rather than a symbol of joy, love, and solidarity with the oppressed.
My whole country is burning (yes again!), there’s a hurricane passing by near the coast heading to Great Britain which is not helping, temperatures reached 35C in the middle of October only to suddenly drop almost 20 degrees tomorrow and half the country is facing a severe drought.
