Do you or Lily bake? What's your favorite baked good? ~ironing Anon
Hello Ironing Nony! How nice to see you again! How has your Friday been going? I’ve been doing laundry of all things! XD
Lily, aka @writegowrite, is the baker in our happy Jedi/Sith family. She always bakes me a yellow cake with chocolate frosting for my birthday because she is a sweetheart and the cake is yellow like her Sith eyes. XD She can make biscuits from scratch and has been known to make a mean nutella waffle. She’s also pretty damn good at cooking too and is continually threatening to make me some kind of apple pie that is baked in bag? I’m not sure I’m remembering that correctly. She also makes a delicious San Francisco chicken. X9
My single and solitary claim to baking fame is The Bread (an eggy, sweet challah bread), which I make for holidays and family get-togethers or when I feel the need to frantically call my mother at 8 o’clock in the morning and beg for the recipe for the tenth time and make sure that the dough is not too wet and that I added the ingredients in the right order and where in the world is the yeast?!? Oh god! Is the mixer supposed to be making that noise? HEEEEEELLLLP!!!!!
I am firmly convinced that there is some kind of unwritten spell in recipe of The Bread and that if I do not call my mom in a half panic, trying to microwave butter and boil water at the same time while Lily offers to help that The Bread will not rise and whatever meal it is being prepared for will be RUINED.
Happily, Mom always picks up, hooting with delight at being called up from the Long Distance Mothers League and proceeds to patiently walk me through my yearly Gluten Trial By Fire.
Mom also deserves a special mention because one of my parents first dates was to go see Star Wars, which she thought was going to be silly and came out ADORING. The first thing she said to my Dad, who was rocking a truly epic seventies ginger fro, was “When can we see it again?” And if that doesn’t encapsulate me and my entire family’s approach to Star Wars, then I don’t know what does.
Thanks for swinging by and letting me take a walk down memory lane, Nony! Have a lovely weekend! ^___^/”)
someone rlly tweeted “these so-called feminists are protesting against what could be the first female president in france” sorry feminism isnt about racist white women getting into power bc they’re women but you tried it?
“Promise me, Steve. Promise me you’ll give her a life we couldn’t have.”
GIFTED AUwhere Mary is Steve’s and Bucky’s daughter. And when S.H.I.E.L.D learns about the gifted child of the supersoldiers, they try all things possible to take her away from Steve, who’d given up on all to give Mary a normal life that he had promised Bucky he’d give her before Bucky had gone under.
i can’t get over how in season one it felt like all sun had was her
dog? and her connection to the cluster primarily consisted of saving
their asses. and suddenly she has her prison family, her teacher, even
the fucking detective assigned to steal back her freedom, surrounding
her with love and acceptance on all sides.
and from the
holiday ep, the cluster converged, all for her. she’s not just Jean
Claude Van Damme Korean Lady, the one who supplies physical labor for
nothing but an occasional thank you. she’s precious to them. without a
second thought, they save her from assassins, break her out of prison,
put together a legit heist to end her quest for vengeance.
and all along they tell her we’re here. we got your back. we love you and we’re not going anywhere.
