A Fish Fic for (not) Friday

It wasn’t until I went to write that title that I realized I should’ve saved this fic back till tomorrow, but it’s already posted and I am not a patient woman anyway. Oh well! Here is a short West Wing standalone fic about my favorite mystery: what benign force is in charge of Gail’s fishbowl? Personally I still believe it’s magic, but this is a somewhat more mundane explanation. Hope you enjoy! 


“So what’s going on in here?”

Carol jumped at the sudden voice from behind her, water slopping over her fingers as she tightened her grip on the glass bowl. She turned to glare at the interloper, now leaning in the doorway as though he had not a care in the world. “You’re not supposed to be back here, Danny,” she accused. “Margaret’s going to eat you for breakfast.”

“Hey, ease back there, Galatea,” Danny implored, raising his empty hands. “I’ve got a note from the boss, I swear. We’re meeting for lunch.”

anonymous asked:

I've noticed that you are currently reading the stories of Sherlock Holmes .Would you share which your favorite crime novels/stories in general are?

Of course! To be honest, the Sherlock Holmes series are not among my favourites thus far—although the mysteries unfold cleverly, I don’t particularly like or relate to the main characters and I think it overall lacks feeling and suspense, which is what I like best in my crime stories. The writing style is delightful, though.

Crime novels and thrillers are not what I read most, although I’m a sucker for Agatha Christie, but here goes for a short list:

The Name of the Rose, Umberto Eco
And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie
Murder on the Nile, Agatha Christie
Murder On the Orient Express, Agatha Christie
Shutter Island, Dennis Lehane
The Little Friend, Donna Tartt
Alias Grace, Margaret Atwood
The Moving Finger, Agatha Christie
The Murders in the Rue Morgue, Edgar Allan Poe
In Cold Blood, Truman Capote
The Ruby in the Smoke, Philip Pullman

Have fun!

We can’t get over these women. Look at C.J. She’s like a fifties movie star, so capable, so loving and energetic. Look at Mandy over there. Going punch for punch with Toby in a world that tells women to sit down and shut up. Mandy’s already won her battle with the President. The game’s over, but she’s not done. She wants Toby. Mrs. Landingham. Did you guys know she lost two sons in Vietnam? What would make her want to serve her country is beyond me, but in 14 years, she’s not missed a day’s work, not one. There’s Cathy, Donna, and Margaret… {x}
