Book 7, Chapter 16: Revelation in a Hangar

Kristen Kreuk in Legend of Chun-Li, everyone.

Part of the moral of the story is probably that it is very hard to make Chun-Li's haircut look good in real life. The other moral is that Kristin's had to work very, very hard and take some awful roles.

Book 6, Chapter 15: Séance For A Supply Closet

If you're old, like me, you remember Katherine Kurtz's Deryni novels with great fondness, up to the point where she decided that what she really liked to write about was pseudo-Masonic rituals.

I mean, I guess if you're going to write your obsessions, it beats being a pervert, but who cares what order the wards are touched in?

Book 6, Chapter 14: Home on Time

Speaking of vegetating on Steam all day, someone might have spent the whole of Monday playing Civ V instead of writing. 

That someone also owes Andre Norton for the visual cues of the "ancient treefort city." (Also, for not figuring out that her Janus novels are so inscrutable because they're heavily veiled gay coming-of-age stories. In my defence, I read them when I was twelve. Janus is the two-faced god. Get it? Get it? I'm also willing to bet a hundred quatloos that he is portrayed as a hermaphrodite, sometimes.)
