The Damn Bagel Fic
Any good bagel connoisseur can tell you that in the world of Thedosian baked goods, there are two major contenders for the title of Best Bagel out there.
Deciding a winner is a fight as old as deep dish versus thin crust – if not older – and there have been no real victors in the long, bloody battles waged over the matter. Some would say this is because taste is largely subjective, and certain people are just going to prefer certain qualities in their food without one being inherently better than the other. These people are cowards who haven’t eaten enough bagels yet.
Because everyone knows that it’s the Marcher style bagel that wins. Soft, chewy, a little buttery, perfect for spreading toppings onto; excellent when toasted. Light enough that you can actually eat one and not feel like you’ve swallowed half a cake. Clearly, the superior bagel.
But some bitter assholes simply cannot admit defeat, and that’s where the Orlesian bagel comes in.
