I awaked up last of all, as one that gathereth after the grape-gatherers: by the blessing of the Lord I profited, and filled my winepress like a gatherer of grapes. Consider that I laboured not for myself only, but for all them that seek learning. -Ecclus. 33:16-18

MISCELLANEOUS ONE-LINERS:

If you're the Dark Side, why should I believe that you'll share your cookies?

Luke 15:9 - Jesus foresees Facebook.

Ever notice that even the Coexist bumper sticker puts Christianity and Islam as far apart as possible?

Black lives matter. J. K. Rowling shouldn't have killed off Sirius.

Gender Consciousness: The quality that keeps you from following the Pope to Cuba and trying to sell T-shirts that say, "I Saw the Potato!"

If mathematics is a language, how come you can't translate Shakespeare into it?

This media pandering to Islam is getting out of hand. They tell me now that ABC plans to replace Once upon a Time with It Is Said, Though Allah Is Wiser.

The Motto of All Clowns: If you're not stepping on somebody's toes, your shoes aren't big enough.

The Queen's-English Version reviews
As an American ff author, I occasionally end up making British characters refer to something of which the British name is more or less completely unknown in the United States. So, rather than needlessly bewilder my countrymen, I have created this compendium, in which the more authentic versions of such scenes and stories may be found. (See my Qoheleth profile for the originals.)

One More Abbreviation reviews
A missing-chapter fic, as it were, for G. K. Chesterton's "Ballad of Abbreviations". Because it rather surprises me that the great man overlooked this one.

Buzzy
A drabble inspired by my local cathedral rector's fondness for mission statements. It takes really determined fuzzy-mindedness to die on the *second* question…

Anatta reviews
A random fragment of a longer story that will probably never be written, exploring what, ontologically, the whole IO setup really implies about humanity - and what it might be like if one of the emotions brought herself to face it.
Inside Out - Rated: K - English - Angst - Chapters: 1 - Words: 710 - Reviews: 6 - Favs: 5 - Follows: 1 - Published: 1/20/2016 - Disgust
Able Was I… reviews
An abandoned story from my Qoheleth account, reposted here out of sentiment. When Zatanna, on a visit to Gotham City, finds herself suddenly casting dangerous spells without meaning to, she suspects that her power has been cursed - but can she fix the problem without playing into her enemy's hands?

Occulted reviews
Drabble. Concerning an aspect of Frigga's last trick that easily escapes notice - unless you're Loki, of course.
Thor - Rated: K - English - Chapters: 1 - Words: 118 - Reviews: 1 - Favs: 2 - Published: 4/15/2014 - Loki - Complete
Out of the Water reviews
This is the story of how a change to the past irreversibly altered the wizarding world's future. It is a story of house-elves and children's tales, of love, loyalty, and innocence; it is a story of wishes made on stars, and a magic older and stronger than that of man. This is the story of Hydra Malfoy.

Drabble. To convince Bartlet to run the first time, Leo had to be persistent, creative, and just a trifle annoying...
