"The Six Skills of Madame Lumiere" is up at Beneath Ceaseless Skies. Go, read, enjoy. Inspired by elisem earrings of the same title, and also Louis Armstrong, the feel of raw silk, and various other things like that.
Fairy vegetables! ILU!
I will now finish the story. But I just had to pause for squee.
I had the exact same reaction. Well, mine was more like, fairy rutabagas! Best line ever! Close enough, though.
Oh Oh Oh.
I approve of this City.

That is very nice indeed!
Oh, oh, oh!
I love that story.
I am glad that everybody who has said they liked it, liked it. But I am particularly glad you did because of the part you played in making it happen with the earrings and all. So good then.
Oh, very nice.
Thanks for the link.

I haven't even finished it yet, but I already have to comment.
“If you knew what mattered, you would not be here asking for my assistance, would you?”
That line made me laugh, because it's the sort of thing that I've wanted to say in so many tech support situations....
Oh, nice! Rust lords, eek.
Oooh. That sucked me in like a novel does--you built the world amazingly well in such little space. I enjoyed that very much, thank you for writing it!
I'm not even halfway through and I'm enthralled.
OK, back to it.
I think I need to channel a Victorian Brit Col & say : "Jolly good, geal, Jolly good!".

That was delightful. Thanks for the link.
"Unexpected ocean." You're not so bad at this writing stuff, are you?
By which I mean that was a lovely little marvel of a story. Loved it from start to finish.
