You! Yes you. If you are reading this, I want to send you a holiday card.

I need your name, address, if you have any allergies (if I do cookies or tea samples this year), and if you would prefer a general card to Christmas-themed. I have both!

...also plz include your plurk name/character played just in case.

The war was over but Asgard was incredibly loud all of a sudden. Connor cracked a bleary eye to check the clock… it was still dark as if it was the middle of the night, and sure enough, 2:41 in the morning. What the hell. He didn’t think much of it at that moment, just rolled over to crush the pillow over his ears or burrow into Sophie’s neck or something that would allow him to get back to sleep.

But Sophie wasn’t there.

That itself would not have been cause for alarm; maybe she went to the bathroom, she was allowed to urinate. What was alarming, and thus caused Connor to bolt upright and stumble out of bed in terror, was the fact that Sophie was a black amorphous lump that was flopping off the other side of the bed. He’d seen it before, in the other world and in nightmares since, but this wasn’t a nightmare. He knew because falling off the bed hurt, and the thump of his side on the floor was so incredibly loud he felt like it would blow out his eardrums. He cried out in shock and pain, and that only made both worse.

Pressing both hands over his ears Connor struggled to his feet, speaking as loud as he could manage. “Sophie? Sophie?!” Fuck, it was so loud. So loud he could hear his heartbeat through his hands and see every thread of their sheets even in the near pitch black of their room and was what he thought was happening actually happening? Desperate now he lowered a hand to the blob, grimacing as it squished down under his hand, and shook. “Sophie! John! John!!!

All items are baked with premium ingredients and lots of love in my home kitchen. The question marks are only if I need to confirm batch sizes or work out prices: I've made all these before, most many many times. ;) I also take requests, though it may take a few days for me to perfect a recipe!

I'm trying to get as many orders as possible right now, as I am not working while I wait to hear on a disability claim. And sending people treats makes me *so happy* so orders make me happy. No order too big or small. <3

Baking is serious business. ;)

$25 - Snickerdoodles (batch ~4 doz cookies)
The popular classic cookie my way; soft fluffy pillows of vanilla and cinnamon sugar. (Forgive that picture, they had mostly been eaten before I got a shot.)

$35 - Ricotta Chocolate Chip (batch ~3 doz standard cookies; ~5 doz mini cookies)
A twist on your classic chocolate chip, made with ricotta cheese for a light cake-y texture. Available in a mini size with semi and white chocolate chips or standard size with semi, milk, and white chips. I can customize and add nuts or different chips upon request!

Guys, these are perishable they don't mail well. They seem to be everyone's first choice and I can't afford the cold packing cost so I'm removing them from the list for now. Sorry.


Gingerbread (the only pics i can find rn are custom sets.... er. I did lots of traditional ones too, really.)

↬ I come up with a scenario based on the image and characters. We play it out. Quite possibly, hilarity ensues!

Every second counts, and he knows that. The sound, the speed, the distance. Your breathing as strong as your breadth, hope as strong as your heart, the beat timing every leap and bound.

And he's able to hope, these days. As he fights, as he loves, as he learns. It used to be hate that was his fuel, and that felt literal, like it only took one small spark to light the fire in his eyes. He'd set off baring his teeth, cruel smiles and sharp fists. He was all sharp, all of him, like a glass full of spiderweb cracks that you couldn't hold too tight. Now he felt sealed up, able to hold things without them leaking out, able to fill up with things less sudden than adrenaline.

Though, he'd admit, that often filled his veins.

That night there was the *hope* that he would make it rather than just a need to, and his first thought was to protect, not to kill. All sealed up, he could hold a trust in himself.

She could handle herself, of course. But that didn't matter, as he wasn't joining in to prove anything... only to be there. Just for fun and just in case. And maybe to sew her twirls and feints, the way she darted forward and struck so quick-poibtedly, beauty like lightning in a city of metal. The feral boy was tamed, sealed and healed, yes. But he still liked a good fight, and a girl with sharp fists like his.

'Run. Fight. Make the beasts bleed.' The boy chanted in the back of his mind, and he felt the smile tugging at his mouth. 'Fine,' he told the boy, 'let's play. Your smile will match her better anyway.' And in the end, the boy was him. He was half and half but now a third, a person all sealed up. Apples don't fall far.

Tonight his steps were one too late; he watched from the rooftop as she felled the last of them, a quick slash across its throat with fingers grown long and wickedly curved, talons that dripped the creature's blood. She looked up at him with a night-owl's eyes, cocking her head as if to say that the show was over.

The boy was left unsatisfied tonight. 'Next time,' he promised, as he dropped silently from the roof. She picked her way through the corpses to stroke her sharp hand down his cheek.

As they kissed, one of her still-pointed teeth nicked his tongue. He tasted blood, and remembered being all spiderweb edges.
