“We have candles…” “What are they?” “They are candles!

Scenes from the universe where Leif hosts the Daily Show, and Thorn has a spinoff where he shouts a lot. Because I was specifically challenged not to do it the other way around.

____

THE DAILY SHOW WITH LEIF SERPOLET

Leif: People have accused me of changing my name to “hide my Sønheic heritage.” Really?

Have you seen the ears? Nothing is getting hidden here!

THE ESTRAGON CONDITION

Thorn: It’s the ɛstʀagɔ̃ kɔ̃disjɔ̃. The N’s are silent. Unlike me.

Leif: We have a correspondent who is the world’s biggest Rhódon nerd. I have a recording of him listing all the names your character is known by . . .

Thorn: . . . and they sent me the actual prop used for the Rose Heartsword in the Epic of Rhódon trilogy! I am in nerd heaven right now.

Leif (singing): Can I interest you . . . in Szélanyanatt? Maybe something with a wreathy candle hat?

Thorn: I’m intrigued! Keep singing.

Leif: We have Tröja!

Thorn: What are they?

Leif: Ugly sweaters. We have lutefisk!

Thorn: What is that?

Leif: No one knows!

LADY STANCZIA
SENIOR UNDEAD CORRESPONDENT

Leif: For more on this story, we turn to Lady Stanczia, reporting live —

Stanczia: That’s offensive.

Leif: Sorry! Reporting on the scene . . .

Thorn; And the number-one threat to Ceannis today . . .

THREAT DOWN
1. Dragons!

How many AUs did you make woman?!

Almost enough… Soon, the sheer weight of Erin’s creativity will tear apart the Starry Vault of Heaven, and create a better world for us all.

or maybe I shouldn’t post before eating breakfast. It’s a toss-up. Either way, AUs are fun!

There is no such thing as enough AUs.

I maintain that there is a theoretical limit, a saturation point, if you will. Laboratory conditions have yet to yield a sufficient density, stacking Coffee Shop AUs on top of Grocery Store AUs on top of University AUs with a thin slice of “Transposed to the Setting of Exalted, but they’re all in a modern-era high school” AU… Just before they lose containment, but surely that is a result unto itself?

Leif eventually gets tired of the TV life and retires to a life under Thorn’s desk

*half-heartedly and with voice straining to hit the high notes* “… and when we light them oh the fun it never stops!”

Strange to see Thorn as the “poorly informed high-status idiot” but I’m loving the jokes/references.
