Halloween memery

Comment "trick-or-treat" to this post and...well, you know the drill. Treats can be anything that strikes my fancy (pics of fave actors or pairings, one sentence fics, graphics (with my skills I feel like this one falls more under 'trick'...), a few words why I'm glad to have you on my flist, etc. etc.). The more "houses" to visit the more fun it'll be, so go ahead, open your journal and help spread the fun!

Trick or treat!

(I'm not a hallowe'eny person, but this looks like fun, so I may try it too.)

How about a bit of Swordspoint head-canon?

Richard, as a premier swordsman, makes more than enough to take Alec out to swankier places than the taverns around Riverside. He's suggested it once, in the early days of their relationship, but Alec declared it as boring: he goes out, not for the food or the ambiance, but because he likes the adrenaline rush of cards and starting fights - neither of which would be tolerated quite so easily across the river.

But he does make an exception. One of his few fond memories from his student days is the special harvest brews some of the area taverns offered around October. The names are a bit kitschy but each beer has its own little varieties of taste, which always surprised Alec. He likes being surprised.

He can't stand being around those stuffed shirts for too long these days, now that he's left the University, but Alec still has a special taste for the drinks. So come October, Richard always sets aside enough coin to buy several bottles from different taverns, and the two of them will go across the river, have a drink or two and bring back enough for a little tasting party with a few choice friends. After which Alec is likely to point out constellations and quote classical poetry at the stars and smile rather more than he normally wound. Much to his surprise, Richard doesn't find this pretentious at all - it's just part of who Alec is.

LOL someone's been reading my Facebook posts *grin*

I love this, not just about the seasonal brews, but the tasting parties back back home and tipsy Alec stargazing and reciting poetry. Lovely!

Heh. Well, this has always been a part of my personal head-canon for those two. We can blame the German thing. But your FB posts did make me think you in particular would appreciate it. Glad you liked the image!

There are actually several references in SP to their choosing which tavern to hang out based on whether their priorities of the moment are good food or good beer.

I did a reference post once on "Taverns of Riverside". Then I listened to TFOTK, and wow, so many many taverns in that one! So I'll need to go update it soon.

For some reason, this turtle makes me think of you. Smiling, cute animals always make me think of you. But something about this one's smile almost seems hobbitish.

Oh gosh, I absolutely love that. Thank you for knowing I'd enjoy something sweet and smile-making. (And I really do like turtles!)

I think this must be one of the turtles in Sam's Bag End garden, who knows he's found a place of love and nurturing.

Your reply was so sweet, and I'm glad you like it.

I do feel a bit bad, though, that the turtle seemed hobbitish without actually being hobbitish, so when I saw this picture I thought of you. Have an extra Halloween gift, then.

Trick or treat! By the way, I am dressed as beer, sort of. I have yellow balloons duct-taped all over me to represent brewer's yeast microorganisms. This was an actual costume idea I had this year. :D
