fat matt

The Foxes as things I have tweeted

So I started this like- just one tweet each- then I realised I’ve made some really great tweets in my time and proceeded to spend an hour giggling at myself.

THIS IS a  THING. MY CAT HAS BEEN DOING IT FOR YEARS

Person: “If you’re a vegan, why are you fat?”
Me: 


- Vegan General Tsos Mock Chicken and Buffalo Bites.
- Pink Sugar Rush Cake, Vegan Cream Eggs, 2 Twinkies, a Raspberry Poptart and Captain Crunch Fruity Berries Cake. 

The fat cat on the mat
may seem to dream
of nice mice that suffice
for him, or cream;
but he free, maybe,
walks in thought
unbowed, proud, where loud
roared and fought
his kin, lean and slim,
or deep in den
in the East feasted on beasts
and tender men.

The giant lion with iron
claw in paw,
and huge ruthless tooth
in gory jaw;
the pard,[note 1] dark-starred,
fleet upon feet,
that oft soft from aloft
leaps on his meat
where woods loom in gloom–
far now they be,
fierce and free,
and tamed is he;
but fat cat on the mat
kept as a pet,
he does not forget.

– J.R.R.Tolkien

foggy’s butcher story comes up a few times, but i think it wasn’t just his mom who wanted him to be a butcher. i think he kinda wanted it too, liked the thought of his own little store with his apron and his cold cuts

maybe every once in a while, when things get heavy with daredevil and the practice, matt finds him looking at spaces to rent that would fit a little deli, or online courses that would prepare someone to run a small business, or even just nice meat cleavers. matt doesn’t say anything because every man needs his own escape route

and much later, when matt’s hung up the suit and they’ve both decided to retire, when the game is full of new players and they know it’s their time to step back gracefully, when the boys have gotten their act together and live in a brownstone with matching rings on their fingers, matt gives his husband a retiring gift: a set of keys to foggy’s own little butchery in the heart of hell’s kitchen. 

and so, ‘Nelson and Murdock, Attorneys at Law’, becomes ‘Murdock and Murdock’s Fine Meats and Cheeses’ (affectionately referred to as ‘Attorneys at Meat’ and sometimes ‘Slaughterhouse Fine’) and foggy gets to live out his dream with the love of his life by his side, and it’s better than he ever imagined.
