Obviously not. Pepper pot robots like the Daleks, or like R2D2, another pepper pot robot, are the property of the BBC and of Lucasfilms respectively, and could not possibly have appeared in our book in a minor supporting part.

Get to know the blogger

I was tagged by audreyii-fic

Name:  sfiddy.  My real name could make things complicated.

Birthday: Spring.

Gender: Female

Sexuality: Whatever you don’t like.

Height: 5’9”… I’ve shrunk a bit in my maturity.

Time zone: central.

Time and date: 1:33pm 8/28/14

Average hours of sleep I get each night: 6-7.  Less if I’m working on something, fic or science-wise.

The last thing I Googled was: postgraduate funding opportunities

My most used phrase(s): “walking feet” (for the kids); variations on “wtf” for everything else.

First thing that comes to mind: “ATP”  (I’m working on something)

What I last said to a family member: “How are the goats?”

One place that makes me happy: The big comfy chairs in a lounge near my lab.  I escape to eat lunch and watch episodes of “House MD”.

How I sleep: On my side.  I leave deep narrow trenches in the bed that make my husband crazy.

Favorite beverage: Jasmine green tea.

Last movie I saw in the cinema: Can’t remember.  I last saw The Grand Budapest, though.

Three things I can’t live without: My phone, my notebooks, and Ball jars.

Something I plan on learning: Science-y answer:  mixed model statistics.  Non- science: How to get my kids to eat a meal in one sitting without a billion reminders.

A piece of advice to all my followers:  Don’t get into debates on the internet.  No one wins, everyone gets offended, and someone will get called a very very bad name.  Then you wake up and realize you got into an argument about fictional characters at 2am and you haven’t washed your clothes in a week. 

You all have to listen to this: “Way Down Yonder in the Minor Key” by Billy Bragg with Natalie Merchant and Wilco. Written by Woodie Guthrie.

My blogs: This one, but I also post on AO3 and Fanfiction.  Twitter, too as @sfiddyfic


Favorite food: Mussman curry

Drink: amaretto

Favorite movie: You can’t ask a fangirl that question.

Favorite TV shows: currently, House MD and Doctor Who.

Favorite band: Hard question.  I’m currently in love with Billy Bragg and Wilco’s posthumous collaborative effort with Woody Guthrie called Mermaid Avenue. 

Favorite actor:  British men are ruining my life.

Favorite actress: Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson


Siblings: One older brother

Dream job: running a collaborative research microscopy lab

Fears: Imposter syndrome

Religion: raised Catholic-and while I sense of humor about it, I recently had reason to recall why I can’t stand the ‘entitlement Christians’.  The phrases “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want” and “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall want for nothing” are fundamentally VERY different statements.

Tattoos: none

Piercings: one in each ear.  I’m such a square.  I also don’t like hepatitis.

Languages: Fluent in American English, can understand some Glaswegian, German, and Spanish.  (yes, I said that).


Why you joined:  There was a party, so I came late.

I’m tagging: rumbellehogwarts, flameysaur, justrumbelledearie screwballninja

sweet-baby-jesus-and-the-orphans replied to your post: Imagine Snape having to deal with a ra…

thank you now I have pepsi up my nose

Like that episode of Father Ted

He picks up a rabbit, then turns around and there are two more.

Don’t forget the one that looked like Harvey Keitel.

"Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do."

Cicero, 106 BC - 43 BC  (via thelittlephilosopher)

BC. … B.C.
